Saturday Seven.

Try each of these seven recipes on including Salted Caramel Cupcakes, Sprinkle-loaded puppy chow, Pizza Rolls, and Cookie Dough Ice Cream Pie!

Welcome back to my Saturday Seven series. A little weekend tribute to a few (7!) favorite seasonal recipes. My mind explodes with things I want you to make every week and I need somewhere to spurt it all out.

And even if you don’t make any of these, you can still look at the pictures. Pics are calorie free, just like all of the indulgent desserts below. Just kidding. #dreamworld

Also, you should probably get this spatula.

Q: Have you tried any of these recipes? Thoughts?

Q: Any fun plans this weekend?



  1. Oh my goodness. I need to stop coming to visit you on my way out to the gym. Because, that cake batter puppy chow and cookie dough lovers pie?! Those are my 2 favorite treat flavours and I am thinking eating those is a better idea than working out 😉 Fun series! pinning!

  2. Great recipes, they look so delicious! Especially the cupcakes. I can’t wait to try some of them!

  4. Have you seen the new lime golden Oreos? I bet they would make amazing, key-lime-pie truffles 😀

  5. I’ve made the strawberry swirl cheesecakes & the Oreo truffles sprinkles and all; both great recipes. Those pizza rolls look amazing think I need to put those on my to do list. Today I’m making the cookies you posted yesterday! Reader request? I’d love a malt powder cookie recipe……love your blog! Enjoy your shower!

  6. While I do love your sweet recipes, I am drooling over those pepperoni pizza rolls. My weakness is cheesy carbs, 110%. I also just got back from a really hard spin class, and that’s making this while situation even worse… #fitpeopleproblems

    • You sound a lot like Kevin. He loooove cheesy pizza anything, really. I need to find a good spin class up in Philly when we move! I haven’t gone to a class in awhile. Hope you had a great workout Lynn!

  7. Mmm I love the looks of all of these recipes! I made th fluffernutter cake before last summer and it’s one of my favourite cakes! No clue how many times I’ve made it since then. I really got my eye on that cookie dough cake and caramel cupcakes… Guess those will have to be next (no complaints) 😀

  8. Those triple caramel cupcakes look like a cheeky treat… but oh so yummy!

  9. I have so many weekend plans OTHER than working – yay! 🙂 but need to get my post up first. I hope you’re having an awesome weekend so far too Sally and all these must-makes remind me I need to make a few of them!

  13. I made the golden Oreo truffles for a new years party and they were the hit of the party that year! And that ice cream cake is calling my name right now!

  14. I’m obsessed with cookie dough, so I definitely have to try that Cookie Dough Lovers Ice Cream Pie, it looks amazing!

  15. Omg that cookie dough pie looks sinful and amazing! I also love that spatula- I’m a sucker for cute baking tools. Once I’m in a Williams Sonoma you have to drag me out 🙂

  16. love all of the dessert recipes. They are a blast.

  17. I get chills thinking about how good the cupcake puppy chow was- I can’t wait to try more of these recipes this summer.

  18. Whoa, cookie dough pie,cake batter puppy chow, blue berries n cream cupcakes, fluffer nutter cake, pepperoni pizza rolls and oreo truffles!! To many goodies to choose from! No idea what to try first, I guess the one i have all the ingredients for. 😉 They all will be going on my “to bake list” Your AMAZing!

  19. I made the fluffernutter cake a few months back and it was waaaaay too addictive! Had to freeze it to slow myself down!
    Want to do Oreo truffles soon, but using those limited edition Reese’s ones. Have you tried them? They’re off the hook amazing!

  20. I would be pretty happy with some pizza rolls and a caramel cupcake. Yum, yum!!

  21. I haven’t made these recipes yet, but I have made the cake batter chocolate chip cookies from your book about 3 times now. The most recent being for 4th of July – I added red, white & blue sprinkles to them. Yum!!

  22. It’s so clear why baking can be addictive! Just take a look at your pictures…I know you cannot eat them…but they just make you go in the kitchen and yup, bake! I’ve found myself baking a lot recently…even though summer is here and you know that beach body and other nonsense! So, let’s bake!

    • Hi Joanna! Thanks so much and I hope you get to try some of my recipes – I definitely treat myself to the goodies I bake, but I mostly love to share them with others. Have a great weekend!

  23. The cupcake puppy chow is so addicting.! lol

    I really want to make the fluffernutter cake considering it was my favorite sandwich as a kid! It keeps coming up as a suggestion almost every time I come to your site. I think the universe is trying to tell me something ;o)

  24. These all look so good! I plan on trying those pepperoni pizza rolls VERY SOON!
    How did your brides made party go?

  25. Oh, I’m in serious trouble! I can’t seem to able to choose what to make! Probably either Cookie Dough Lovers Ice Cream Pie or Fluffernutter Cake. Although they all look equally delicious 😉 Thanks for sharing!

  26. I’m assuming that the recipe for cookie dough pie accounts for several of those balls to be eaten by the roller? Because I know I would be rolling them and popping a few in my mouth. Cookie dough cannot be resisted!

    • Hahahaha I definitely sneak a few of the cookie dough balls as I go. And there is more than enough to “test” 🙂

  27. This is such a great list!! It all sounds so wonderful especially the cupcake puppy chow.

  28. I mean, YEAH, I want them all. But that cookie dough lovers pie with CHUNK O’ DOUGH??! You’re killin’ me, smallz! 🙂

  29. I have to make those salted triple caramel cupcakes for my Mum she will go wild for them! I used your raspberry chocolate chip cake last week to make a cake for a client and they loved it!
    I hope you had a great bridal shower! Let the festivities begin 🙂

    • mmm that raspberry chocolate chip cake is amazing, Amy! Happy it was a hit. The bridal shower was amazing, thank you 🙂

  30. That spatula is AMAZING. Inspired me to go buy it and another one “Your opinion is NOT in the recipe!” which is so totally me 🙂 I found your blog through tumblr last year, the cake batter chocolate chip cookies, of course! Now that I’m not 50 pounds overweight anymore, I can bake more of your amazing treats without feeling (as) guilty! Also I didn’t realize how young you were I thought you were married already until now. Best of luck to you Sally and thanks again for all the amazing recipes!!

    • OH. ALSO how could I forget the most important reason why I came to comment? I just read your bio and I LOVE LOVE LOVE ketchup too. so much that I have a shirt that says “I put ketchup on my ketchup”

    • Thanks Nyla! Congrats on the weight loss – that’s incredible! Now you can treat yourself to the things you bake in moderation. Those cake batter chocolate chip cookies are amazing. One of my favorites!

  31. SALLY! Your blog is AMAZ-INGGG!
