I am a lover of my husband, adorable children, and last but not least food. I first started baking when I was just a little girl. My mom always had an amazing home-cooked meal on the table and she always encouraged me to help. Much of what I know has come from watching her in the kitchen. I used to love to pretend I owned a restaurant and cook things up for my siblings and their friends. Not much has changed :) Now my sweet husband and kids get to be my taste testers. I love exploring new ingredients and am always looking for the best of the best when it comes to recipes. I hope you enjoy the site as much as I do. Through this blog I will share just a few of my favorite things- my passion for child development, my wonderful family, and my love for food :) Happy blogging!

Devil's Float

-My mom used to make this when we were kids. Usually on Sunday nights after church :) We are having some friends over Monday night so I was looking for a good dessert recipe. I remembered this and went searching the web for anything like it. I finally found it! This is a good change to your normal chocolate dessert recipe. Not too rich and nice and gooey :) Enjoy!


1 1/2 pkg. Marshmallows; quartered (small size packages)
1 c. Sugar (divided)
1 1/2 c. Water
2 oz. Chocolate (or you can substitute 6 T. cocoa & 2 T. shortening or butter)
2 T. Butter
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 c. Flour
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking powder
1/2 c. Milk
1/2 c. Chopped walnuts or pecans


Place marshmallows in square baking pan. Bring 1/2 cup sugar and water to a rolling boil; pour over marshmallows. Melt chocolate and butter in saucepan; add remaining sugar, vanilla, flour, salt, baking powder and milk. Drop batter by spoonfuls over marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle nuts over top. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
