A Sweet Treat for Your Sweetheart – Chocolate Lava Cakes Recipe

As if Valentine’s Day wasn’t already sweet enough, this recipe for Chocolate Lava Cakes is sure to impress your sweetie (and your kids).   Rumor has it that these cakes were made as a major culinary disaster.  What a delicious disaster.  These cakes are decadent and gourmet but surprisingly simple to make.  My favorite part about this recipe is how many possibilities there are to switch up the flavors and make it special.  By adding a tablespoon of flavored liqueur your lava cakes can be taken to the next level and by finishing off your lava cake by adding fresh berries, or whipped cream makes this dessert ultra special for your sweetheart.  

Thanksgiving Dessert Recipe: Sweet Potato Pie

Sweet Potato Pie is our go-to recipe at Thanksgiving and at Easter.  What I love about this recipe is that it is easy to make (only one bowl), it’s delicious, and it is one of Mile High Mamas’ most popular recipes!  I shared this recipe with a Food Bank in North Carolina – the sweet potato capital of the US.  I made it for volunteers at a sweet potato sorting event and it was featured on their telethon. If you want to make it even easier, buy a prepared rolled pie dough from the grocery store but homemade is always best. To jazz up your pie even more, bake it in this darling Be Grateful pie plate and skip doing the dishes by using these ‘Thankful’ dessert and extra-large disposable plates.
