    Hobby Lobby cardboard letters painted with metal spraypaint - so light you can hang them with 3m sticky strips!- AH! So much cheaper than the Anthropologie version!

    Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Pie with an Oreo Cookie Crust. Only 5 ingredients!! This is amazing. If you are going to use tart pan, use one where you lift dessert from bottom. Made mine in fluted pan and it was hard to serve. Also, I used double stuff Oreos. It was too much crust. Make sure to set caramel or you will have chocolate and crust only in the middle. I added a few raspberries and it was so delicious.

    Cold Oven Pound Cake Cupcakes. These were awful. Not the taste, that was okay but they are not presentable. The comments that say it didn't work were all true for me. The blogger used all purpose flour so I did too. They had hard top that caved and some completely came out of liner.

    The best meatloaf. The family really liked this but thought the top sauce was a little too sweet. I may cut the sugar down a bit next time.

    Heat a bowl of water and vinegar for 5 minutes in the microwave. The steam will get rid of stains and then you simply wipe it off.

    Nutter Butters on a Stick. These are VERY labor intensive. They are adorable but take a lot of time. I think we did only 12.

    For all the pictures you have and no frames to put them in. Great to take up a big space. I think we could do one board for Emma each year.

    These were awful! Lemon Bars made with Cake Mix. The recipe is vague (cream cheese not identified if it should be room temp - I always assume it does with baking). The taste was not great. The bars didn't set. The cake mix was still powdery with just 1/4 cup softened (not melted) butter. Added another Tablespoon. Not worth the effort. Tried another recipe on this board which was perfect but this is not it.

    Perfect Lemon Bars - these are actually perfect! I made them exactly as written. They are very lemony which I love. One person wrote they reduced the lemon juice to make it less tart. Very easy recipe!

    Salted Caramel Chocolate Trifle - Willow Bird Baking - I think this might be a winner for the bake off. There is no thinking, this is a WINNER. Okay, however, I think you can reduce the recipe for the cake and caramel by 1/3 as I had an extra cake and a whole lot of caramel left over.
