Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I made a banana cream filling for my chocolate cupcakes and topped with a peanut butter buttercream frosting......YUM!!!!

Dear mid4u, I would love to have the recipes for the banana cream filling and the peanut butter buttercream frosting or let me know where to get them PLEASE send to wyantjoann@yahoo.com Thanks so much

Great minds think alike!!! I actually did the same thing this past weekend but then decorated them with a Thanksgiving theme.

Something I would like to see on recipes is the nutritional information. As a diabetic, this would be quite helpful as well as see what substitutions I could make.

Tasty and just sweet enough. Brown Suguar Slider is my name for this cookie MSJ

Kitchen Sink Pie

Our Kitchen Sink Pie was inspired by the famous "Kitchen Sink" ice cream dessert from Jaxon's Ice Cream Parlor in Florida. Like the original, it's got everything but the kitchen sink, including an ice cream cone crust, piles of ice cream, and all sorts of sundae toppings!
