This is the THIRD time I’ve posted this pie. I’m betting none of you have ever seen the other two so…third time’s the charm, I guess. Let me introduce you to the pie that started this blog, literally: Dorothy’s Famous Crumb Apple Pie.

PIN IT NOW to save for later!

The BEST Crumb Apple Pie Recipe you'll ever eat! This is my signature recipe! EVERYONE loves this easy pie!

I can say it’s famous, right? If it’s been on the internet? And is the most requested pie in my entire family? And if MEL EATS IT?

Okay, so I first posted this pie in the early days of this blog. I’m not even gonna link it because, really. No one needs to see it. That was back when I thought “Hey, I’ll post all these recipes and magically everyone will start reading my blog!” which was what I thought a hot second after thinking “Hey, the Pioneer Woman is famous! I can do that!”

*snort laugh*

Anyway, post #2 was back in 2012. I joined forces with some of my BFF bloggers to on a “redo” post. That is, we picked an old post, reshot it and reposted it because our old photos sucked. And, well. LMAO, I actually thought it was a great photo. (See the bottom of this post for the original shot.)

So, third time is the charm. I mean, the pie that is the reason I started my blog deserves to be front and center. It deserves good photos and a good pin count (so pin it, pretty please?) and everyone needs to make this pie.

I realize it’s not “apple pie season” but really. Isn’t every day apple pie season? #ItShouldBe

The BEST Crumb Apple Pie Recipe you'll ever eat! This is my signature recipe - the crumble is super crunchy and thick. This easy pie is PERFECT!

Look at that crumb? You guys, I’m drooling, for real.

So how did this pie start it all? Well, I developed this recipe when I was in college. I loved the flavors of apple pie but I always thought the traditional two crust variety was missing something. I also hate chewy/crunchy apples in pie; I can’t even eat a pie if the apples bounce back at me. So I created this recipe and it became legendary (at least to me). I subsequently have made this pie for every holiday for 20 years. And, you guys: MEL EATS IT. It’s one of the only non-peanut butter, non-carrot cake desserts he eats!! And he can never resist it!

How did that turn into a blog? Well, Mel and I always joked that we should make this pie without the apples; just the crust and the crumb, because that was the best part. Then that turned into a business idea we had for a bakery (which is still on my mind)…and that turned into Crazy for Crust. And the rest is history!

So, what makes this pie so special? What makes it the BEST APPLE PIE out there? Well, let’s break down the only pie recipe you’ll ever need from now until infinity, shall we?

Swiss Roll Layered No Bake Dessert - this easy recipe combines Little Debbie snack rolls with layers of pudding and whipped cream for the perfect easy dessert recipe!

That’s right, my friends. I made you a Swiss Roll Layered No Bake Dessert! It has cut up Swiss Rolls for the crust, no-bake cheesecake and chocolate pudding for the filing, and tons of whipped cream.

Pretty much, this dessert is my heaven.

When my friends and I turned 16 we used to go cruising. No, not with a boat; we’d cruise “The Avenue” in our cars. We’d all pile into my boyfriend’s 1960s-era Impala and we’d drive back and forth from San Carlos to San Bruno (in the Bay Area) along El Camino. Every city had it’s stop: the fast food joints, the coffee place, the hot spot, the grocery store. The grocery store was my favorite spot, why? Because that’s where I’d get my Swiss Rolls.

Every Friday and Saturday night my friends and I would pick up snacks and continue cruising. Sometimes we’d head to the beach or just park at the local coffee shop where all the people gathered. Sometimes we’d end up back at a friend’s house and watch movies. But pretty much, for hours every weekend, we cruised…and ate Swiss Rolls.

Man, those were the days, weren’t they? I want to go back to that girl and say, “Enjoy it while it lasts, being a grown up is hard!”

Okay, y’all, are you ready for this one? Three words, only two ingredients: Cinnamon Roll Cobbler. Will you eat this for breakfast or for dessert? Or BOTH?

PIN IT NOW to save for later!

This Cinnamon Roll Cobbler is an easy 2 ingredient recipe that's the perfect brunch, breakfast, or dessert! If you have hands, you can make this recipe - it's totally foolproof!

Have you ever watched Dance Moms? Jordan loves that show and it freaks the heck out of me because Jordan loves to dance and she’s almost to the competition point. You guys, I am not, nor will I ever be, a dance mom.

Watch every practice faithfully? Nope, I’ll drop you honey, don’t trip on the car door as I drive away.

Coach the kids on their perfect pointe and smiles? Nope, more like, “Oh? You’re practicing today?”

Sitting backstage at competitions and recitals helping the girls change, doing make-up, and corralling them? Um, I’ll give that one a NOPE. I’d rather do…almost anything else.

Watch Jordan from the audience and cheer as loud as I can? Now THAT I can handle.

All this comes up because today I get to spend 4 hours in the parking lot of our dance studio waiting in line for “VIP Registration” so I can save 25% on classes and actually get Jordan into the ones she wants before they fill up. Admit it, you’re jealous of my Sunday, right?

At least I had cinnamon roll cobbler for breakfast and I’ll eat it again for dessert.

Easy Cinnamon Roll Cobbler Recipe - this only has 2 ingredients!!

This recipe blew my mind, seriously. I have one of those Pillsbury recipe-a-month calendars hanging on my wall and Cinnamon Roll Cobbler is April’s recipe. When I flipped the month my mouth dropped; how have I never thought of this before?

Their recipe involved boiling canned fruit along with pie filling and I thought that was too difficult. I mean, if I’m making Sunday brunch that means I’m already grumpy, so no prep is wanted.

This recipe is easy, foolproof, and has only 2 ingredients. I know, right? It’s actually easy enough that the kids can make it for you on Mother’s Day. Open the cans, dump, bake. No mixing, no bowls, nada.

Just good cobbler…topped with cinnamon rolls (and icing, of course).

I know, you’ve all heard the song. But have you heard of the Cake by the Ocean Cocktail?

(Probably not, because I think I just invented it!)

Cake by the Ocean Cocktail made with Cake Vodka, Coconut Rum, Orange and Pineapple Juices! You can whip up a pitcher of these in less than 5 minutes!

If you’re not familiar with the song, you have to listen to it. The only reason you haven’t heard it is if you exclusively listen to talk radio, because they play it almost too much. It’s the Shake It Off of this year, so I imagine we’ll all be singing along to it by the end of June.

Anyway, Jordan loves the song so I started wondering what it means. I’d never heard the term “Cake by the Ocean” before and although I was picturing me (in a bikini of course, it’s my daydream where I’m skinny) on a lounge chair in Hawaii listening to the ocean and eating a huge slice of yellow layer cake. I tend to be on the naive side and not understand true meanings of songs until it’s too late and Jordan’s signing them at top volume in the middle of Target and then I’m like, oh honey be quiet.

Cake by the Ocean Cocktail Recipe - an easy recipe that's great for a party!

So, naturally, I googled the meaning, to make sure it wasn’t a euphemism for doing crack or something. According to Joe Jonas (as reported by MTV), the Swedish producers they were working with kept confusing “Sex on the Beach” with “Cake by the Ocean,” creating the newest pop song for summer (and cocktails!)

Since a Sex on the Beach is a cocktail, I started thinking about what a Cake by the Ocean Cocktail would look like. Obviously, it could be anything, but it had to have cake vodka in it. Otherwise, it’s not cake by the ocean! And when I think of ocean, I think of Hawaii. When I think of Hawaii, I think about Mai Tais, Maui Island Breeze Cocktails, and all things pineapple, orange, and coconut, and rum.

And this cocktail recipe was born: a Cake by the Ocean Cocktail made with cake flavored vodka, coconut rum, and orange and pineapple juices!

I don’t know about you, but I crave cheesecake all year long. And when s’mores time comes around, I just make them indoor: Mini S’mores Cheesecakes!

PIN IT NOW to save for later!

Mini S'mores Cheesecakes - this easy cheesecake recipe makes the perfect 12 mini cheesecakes! Top them with chocolate and a toasted marshmallow for indoor s'mores!

Jordan gets out of school in 6 weeks. 6 weeks!! Let’s stop thinking about how she’ll be done with 5th grade (gasp) but in 6 weeks I’ll have 8 loooooong weeks to look forward too. I have a love/hate relationship with summer. I love that it’s easy, no alarm clocks, do what we want when we want. I hate that when I start doing all those things I realize that I still have a job and now my 6 hour a day babysitting gig is gone.

A few weeks ago a friend posted this on Facebook: Oh I just can’t wait until summer when these kids can be home with me ALL DAY LONG! I just love being with them every minute!

I almost spit my coffee all over the screen (Okay, it wasn’t coffee. It was wine, you got me.) Now, I’m sure there are those people that really love being with their kids 24/7, every minute of every day. Those are the kind of moms that love crafts, sports, getting down on their hands and knees and playing Barbies and Legos, and they actually play at the park. Those people exist, and I admire those people. I wonder how they survive (drugs? wine?) and I wish I could be like them.

I’m not like those people. I love my daughter with all my heart. She’s fun, she’s funny, and she’s a great little shopper. But 24/7? For 8 loooong weeks of summer? People, there’s just not enough wine in the universe. Is there anyone else out there like me? Because on social media, all of the people are like that friend.

Thank goodness for summer camp.

Easy Mini S'mores Cheesecakes Recipe - we loved these!

Anyway, the thinking about summer got me thinking about summer things, like the beach, the pool, and s’mores. We all know I’m not an outdoor s’more person unless it’s at a resort with a fire pit, so I stick to doing indoor s’mores. I rarely eat traditional s’mores; I make pies and cookies and pudding. And now? Now I’ve made cheesecake: MINI S’mores Cheesecakes!

This is a super simple cheesecake recipe (no fuss, no springform pan, no water bath) and you bake it up in muffin tins so it’s perfectly portioned. You get 12 cheesecakes, perfect for a party! Or, you can freeze them and eat them one at a time for 12 days straight (not that I’d know anything about that).

Two desserts I love: French Silk Pie and Brownies, all in one bite! These French Silk Brownies have a fudge brownie topped with an eggless french silk pie filling…I’m sorry for your waistline.

PIN IT NOW to save for later!

French Silk Brownies - this is an EPIC brownie recipe! Fudgy brownies are topped with an easy egg-free french silk topping. I couldn't stop eating them!

What is it with the end of the school year? The powers that be seem to pack one millionty things into 6 weeks and it drives me insane.

First up is the Revolutionary War re-enactment, where Jordan plays a Mulan-esque soldier who was injured in battle. She needs a costume, so I have to figure out how to make a Continental Soldier’s jacket that will live up to all the costumes of kids with moms who care. (Edited to add: I figured out how to make one. It’s called Amazon.)

Then comes the science fair project to be displayed at Open House. I’m kind of excited about this one, because Jordan chose to work with cupcakes for her experiment. Then I remind myself that I’m not doing the project, I have to let her do it, and instead of excitement I feel dread because instead of just getting it done I’ll be nagging her until the last minute.

And, of course, we can’t forget about all of the band concerts, talent shows, class parties, and other events that make me look at my calendar and scratch my head. I think the only event I am looking forward to with glee is the week the 5th graders learn about “Family Life” and I’m only excited about that because I get to watch Jordan squirm.

I swear, being a parent is hard. Food babies are so much easier, don’t you think? And I’m really good at creating that: marrying two foods and making them have a baby.

Up today: French Silk Brownies. French Silk Pie married Brownies and they had a baby: a fudgy brownie topped with an eggless French Silk filling!!

Easy French Silk Brownies Recipe

This recipe was one of those ones that I had to get out of my house immediately. I took a bite to taste them and I knew I was doomed to inhale the entire pan if I wasn’t careful.

They start with my favorite brownie recipe. It has 3 kinds of chocolate and is made with melted butter. It’s the richest and most fudgy brownie recipe! You bake and cool them before you add the topping.

Now, I’m partial to my homemade brownies but I love a box mix almost just as much. If you’re in a pinch or just don’t have the time, you can use a box brownie mix. Just make them according to the package directions for a 9×13″ pan. (Better yet, have you made up a batch of my Homemade Brownie Mix to stash in your pantry?)

Then comes the fun part.

Overnight Monkey Bread French Toast Casserole - this easy breakfast recipe is the perfect french toast - no syrup needed! We loved this recipe!

Since I currently live in yoga pants (hey, if I’m not leaving my house why not be comfortable?), I’ve been shopping for cute t-shirts to make it look like I’m actually making an effort instead of just looking like I didn’t shower after the gym. My newest favorite shirt is one I got a few weeks ago at Express. It’s a black boyfriend tee and it says “My favorite food is Junk.” I mean, it’s like the shirt was meant for me, or something.

The irony: there was only one large left on the rack.

People often comment that they love the shirt. I respond, with “If someone tells you their favorite food is kale, they’re lying.” Hey, admit it: there’s some truth to that statement.

I also have one that says “literally Can’t Even”. When Jordan’s whining I just point at the shirt and it becomes a behavior modifier. #parentingwin

Overnight Monkey Bread French Toast Casserole Recipe

(I promise this is all relevant to this amazing french toast casserole. Just hang in there.)

Last weekend Mel was complaining about how Jordan is constantly thinking about food. As in, at breakfast she asks what’s for snack. At lunch she wonders what we’re having for dinner, or what she’ll have for dessert later. She does this in a constant stream, out loud, all day long. He was worried because she thinks about food so much. “It’s not normal,” he said.

That’s news to me. Thinking about food every free moment of the day isn’t normal? Really? Because I’ve pretty much spent my life thinking about my next meal while I’m eating my cereal. I mean…I’ve kind of created a job out of thinking about food all the time.

Jordan and I had a discussion the next day about internal dialogue.

No Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Pudding Pie - this pie has an easy no bake chocolate chip cookie crust and is filled with pudding and more cookies! My family loved this pie!

When I finished decorating this pie I stood back and was all, Wow. I did that!! And then I jumped up and down, high fived myself, took photos, and scarfed down a slice or three.

Then I went immediately to Facebook and asked someone – anyone – to take it off my hands. And no one wanted it! And I cried a little inside because I have 7 weeks until I leave for Hawaii and, well, let’s just say I bought lots of cover-ups for this trip.

Then, my husband had this amazing idea to get family photos taken on the beach in Maui. I mean, perfect right? We can hang one over our mantle and I can stare at the place I want to live every single day and it’ll make me happy and make me work harder so I can actually do it. Or something?

In reality, I’ll probably stare at the photo and be all, “Man, I look huge in that dress. It’s all that darn pie’s fault. And Facebook, because Facebook wouldn’t rehome my pie.”

See Facebook? It’s your fault I hate the photos of myself I haven’t taken yet.

No Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Pudding Pie - this pie has an easy no bake chocolate chip cookie crust and is filled with pudding and more cookies! This is one epic pie recipe!

In all reality, I do want to lose a few before we go. This running thing is awesome. I’m loving it. My long runs are up to 5 miles now (something I never thought I’d say). Last week I ran 5 miles in a big city circle and I learned that my city is so weird it goes up hill both directions. I made a mental note to myself to run the other direction next week.

Then, after I run, I go home and I’m famished, so I eat all day. The problem is I work with dessert. Get where I’m going?

My husband is going to try doing a modified Whole 30 for the next few weeks and I’m going to try and do an extra modified version. My version includes me not going ballistic without carbs and sugar, so I’ll feed the beast a bit here and there.

Unfortunately, more than a bite of this pie is probably not recommended on that plan. (I think we need a new plan. The Whole Sugar 30, a diet plan where all you eat is dessert for 30 days and lose weight. Right?)

ANYWAY, I’m very chatty today. Mel’s out of town and I haven’t talked to another adult in 3 days.

Let’s talk about this pie, mmkay? (FINALLY, they say.)

Sober.

{I know, I can’t believe it either.}

Last Friday night a friend of mine hosted a mom’s night out – ’80s style.

There were hot pink shirts, scrunchies, leg warmers, NKOTB accessories, and spandex.

And Love Shack on the karaoke machine. Oh, and Like a Virgin.

{Funny side story: Jordan used to love to sing Love Shack. Only she would sing it “…bring your JUICE BOX money!”}

I still can’t believe I sang karaoke. And the windows didn’t shatter!

Easy Tiramisu Cups to go - this easy recipe uses simple ingredients you already have at home! Make it in plastic cups for the perfect potluck dessert! Everyone loves these at parties.

I brought these yummy Tiramisu Cups for dessert. I made them in plastic cups so they’d be easy to bring with me. I used cupcakes instead of lady fingers. I also used cream cheese instead of mascarpone (because, really, who can find that at Walmart?) so these really are EASY to make.

These just contain simple, easy to find ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. And it’s easy to make however many you want, for however many people you’re serving. As written, the recipe will make about 6 servings. Depending on how many layers you make them, you could get as many as 8 or as few as 5. It just depends on how hungry you are.

Now, some people will argue with me on this point: I classified this as a no-bake recipe. And that’s only kind of a lie, because it can be no-bake. I used a few leftover cupcakes from my Perfect Vanilla Cupcake recipe, but you can also used boxed mix cupcakes…or just buy some unfrosted from the bakery at your local grocery store. Did you know you can do that? You totally can.

You could also use real ladyfinger cookies but, well. Good luck finding those. The last time I tried I ended up sobbing on the floor needing a drink because I’d gone to 12 grocery stores.

Cupcakes are way easier!
