Caramel Apple Milky Way Cake

Fall fun with Caramel Apple Bundt Cake

September is almost here and that means fall is on the way!  Whenever I think of fall I think of apples, pumpkins, and lots of spices in my foods.   It’s also back to school time which means lots of apples for teachers.

Quick Tomato Pesto Pizza Sauce

Quick Tomato Pesto Pizza Sauce - Lady Behind The Curtain

To make this Quick Tomato Pesto Pizza Sauce you start with my 10 Minute Pizza Sauce.  Adding pesto to the sauce adds another layer of flavor and will change your pizza from ordinary to extraordinary! Make several batches of this sauce, pour into zip top bags, lay flat in the freezer and once the sauce is frozen you can stack the sauce or file it like a book.  This is something I like to do with all my sauces.

Have you ever tried a touch of sweetness to your grilled cheese?  It may sound weird … Continue reading

20 More Cake Mix Recipes - Lady Behind The Curtain

My first post  20 Cake Mix Recipes has a variety of fun and easy recipes.  I discovered I had accumulated 20 MORE Cake Mix Recipes.  I know to the “serious” baker using a cake mix is a HUGE no no.  But for the everyday home baker it makes life a lot easier.  I have found that some store bought pre made items will never live up to a home made version but in the case of a cake mix I beg to differ.  I am increasingly using store bought cake mixes to create some of my favorite easy recipes. So … Continue reading
