throwback thursday

It’s that time again… This is one of my favorite recipes. Probably because it involves coconut. Definitely because it involves coconut. P.s. If you’re into Photoshop, I found on this really neat site with tons of free photoshop actions, which I found on Pinterest (wherelse!?). The photo above is using one of the Polaroid actions. Anyways, moving onto coconut bars topped [Read more >>]

Easy S'more Pops - 2 ways by Miss CandiQuik

Are you ready for the easiest treat ever!? No oven, no thinking, nada. Your two year old and you could knock these out. And I have two versions for you!

1. Throwback [throh-bak] A sudden reminder of the past. This can be brought about by hearing a song from high school, seeing an ex, etc. Similar to a flashback. Mid-Century swimsuits. Retro bra tops. Zigzag and chevron everything. Cropped tops. Plastic/Vinyl shoes (remember jellies!?), throwback sports jerseys…even sodas now(!)…the list goes on. Some things shouldn’t come back. But [Read more >>]

These would be adorable to have at a birthday party. In fact, I’m going to make sure my kids see every classic Disney movie. Have [Read more >>]

Personal Vanilla Berry Cream Pies

Ok, maybe these aren’t sooo “personal” sized. Instead, you could grab 2 spoons and share - or not. They’re actually not all that much more than a large piece of pie. You know what, you could probably even freeze these and pull out whenever the time is right. Or bring them to work! Hey, you have to [Read more >>]

  Sweetened condensed milk – this stuff is amazing. In coffee, in cakes (mmm, tres leches) and in these bars, never disappoints. Coconut – toasted coconut, or really any form of coconut, I’m in love. 5 other layers of creamy, crunchy, sweet goodness – who wouldn’t love these bars!? These bars will definitely impress and they pack a fairly [Read more >>]

Can I tell you the truth about my relationship with peanut butter!? I love peanut butter on apples. However, I’m not the biggest fan of peanut butter cookies (I know, I’m crazy). Plus, I’m totally picky about the brand of peanut butter I use - if it’s with apples, has to be Mara Natha. But please, if [Read more >>]
