Addictive Recipes from a Self-Taught Baker

Saturday Seven.

Seven recipes on this week! Peanut Butter Stuffed Brownies, Key Lime Pie Bars, Milky Way Cookies, Peanut Butter Fudge, and more!

Hi! Welcome back to my Saturday Seven series. A little sweet-tooth weekend tribute to a few favorite recipes.

I’ve made so many goodies this week in the new kitchen! I wanted to end that sentence with at least 7 exclamation points because I’m so excited about actually having counter space to put all the goodies. My old kitchen was smaller than a closet.

The first recipe to break in my new oven were these raspberry lemon cupcakes. Like a cool, sweet raspberry lemonade in a cupcake wrapper. The thought of baking cookies in a new oven freaks me out because cookies are so damn temperamental, but these white chocolate chewy macadamia nut oatmeal cookies (say that 3 times fast) baked up beautifully. I made them for a family reunion we’re going to today.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Oatmeal Cookies - buttery, soft-baked, chewy, and loaded with chunks of white chocolate and macadamia nuts

Speaking of my new kitchen, I have this poster framed in it. I bought the peachy/orange color. Instead of a cupcake, you can get a cute little picture of a pie. Definitely a must for your baking addiction!

 Alright, here are 7 oldie but goodie recipes you’ve gotta try soon:

Peanut Butter Stuffed Brownies – Kevin requests these on a weekly basis. The man seems to love peanut butter and chocolate more than beer and pizza.

Brown Butter Milky Way Oatmeal Cookies – hands down, one of the best cookies I’ve ever made. A smorgasbord of melty Milky Way bars. (!!!)

4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Fudge – the easiest recipe on the planet. Tastes like you slaved all day making it! No candy thermometer, no stove, 1 bowl.

The BEST Peanut Butter Fudge - only 4 ingredients needed!


Crispy Baked Onion Rings – these will test your self control. Baked onion rings that aren’t soggy and that actually taste good.

Key Lime Pie Squares – anytime is a good time for key lime pie! These are so much easier than making an actual pie though. Have a key lime pie milkshake on the side.

Incredibly easy and amazing Key Lime Pie Bars. These zesty bars will disappear. I recommend doubling the recipe!


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

Q: Any fun plans this weekend?



  1. Those key lime squares are calling my name, would love to try all of these!

  2. {SCRITCH} Wait! The Milky Way Oatmeal Cookies are better than Thick Chocolate Chip cookies? Because you know I’m addicted to the Thick Choco Chip cookies…I make a batch nearly every other week! I might have to change my tune, eh?

    I want the Raspberry Swirl Sweet Rolls right now! Holy YUMMINESS!!!

    (actually, I want it ALL right now…sigh…) 🙂

  3. Hi Sally,
    This is a great post. I have to try those key lime squares! And the peanut butter fudge!! Yum! Also, i need that poster in my life…….
    I made the peach streusel muffins on friday but subbed the peach for mango & they were fantastic!! And i didn’t even make the glaze. The streusel topping definitely puts them over the top! I think they beat out blueberry as a new favorite! Thanks so much!! I’m glad you survived the move and are enjoying your new home…..:)

  4. Although I also have to make the cooking this is so beautiful and I’m sure it’s all super delicious! Looks so pretty, so good and sounds so awesome!
