Chocolate Chip Cookie Toffee

Chocolate Chip Cookie Toffee

I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m just not going to maintain a diet during the holidays. My attempts will be futile and I should just give up now. I mean, let’s face it: yesterday I kinda sorta engorged myself on turkey, stuffing, and the like. And today, I’m having leftovers of the same meal [Read more >>]

Turkey Rice Krispie Pops

Turkey Rice Krispie Pops

I can’t even believe that Thanksgiving is Thursday! (It is just me, or does it seem like time speeds by faster than ever when you’re an adult?!) As a kid, time seemingly crawled through the holiday season. It seemed like the days were longer, stretching time infinitely longer than it should be before Christmas. But [Read more >>]

Dessert “CONE-UCOPIAS”

Dessert Coneucopias

Did any of you guys ever watch Semi-Homemade with Sandra Lee when it was on the Food Network? I was weirdly obsessed with Sandra Lee’s show. One, because her recipes were great — I love that semi-homemade approach to cooking. And two, because her tablescapes were always so stunning. But I had to wonder: WHERE did [Read more >>]

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Buckeye Cookies

Peanut Butter Buckeye Cookies

Can we all agree that cookie dough is the best thing ever?! For me, nothing beats freshly made cookie dough. It’s comforting, filling, sweet, buttery, and oh-so-dreamy. Dare I say, it’s even *better* than the actual-baked cookies. But don’t twist that into thinking I prefer it over cookies… I’ll eat them both. I’m an equal [Read more >>]

Pecan Pie Truffles

Pecan Pie Truffles

Believe it or not, there was once a time in my life where I disliked pecan pie. (Yeah, it was kind of a dark time.) For some reason, it just didn’t ring my bell the same way Dutch Apple or Banana Cream did. I figured I’d just live out the rest of my days drinking [Read more >>]

Salted Caramel Mocha Bundt Cake

Salted Caramel Mocha Bundt Cake

A List of Things I Love About Fall… 1. The changing of the leaves. Those red trees? Phenomenal! 2. Boots, boots, boots! Easily my favorite type of shoe, yearround. 3. The chillier weather. It’s so nice to snuggle up! 4. Rain. 5. Daylight Savings Time. (Did you remember to turn your clocks back!?) An extra hour [Read more >>]

Chocolate Swirl Cinnamon Buns

Choc Swirl Cinnamon Buns

Recently, I was traveling across the country and during my travel, would have to be in four different airports. Because of this, and the fact that my travel day started at the ripe ol’ time of 4am, I decided when I got to the first airport, I’d splurge on a food-court cinnamon roll. You know [Read more >>]

Can you believe that Halloween is Friday?! How did October go by so quickly?!! If you’re like me and are still coming to grips with the fact that Halloween is in 5 days, you’re probably also scouring the web for fun and easy Halloween ideas for that upcoming party, your child’s school festival, to surprise your coworkers [Read more >>]

Candy Bag Bark

Candy Bag Bark

I really miss the ability to trick-or-treat. Now that I’m an adult, it’s not as socially acceptable anymore … which, if you think about it, is kind of bogus. I mean, I have a job. I pay my bills. I don’t get recess. I want candy, people! I think I’ve earned it, don’t you?! What’s [Read more >>]

Pumpkin Spice Pretzel Fudge

Pumpkin Spice Fudge

Happy Pumpkin Spice Latte Season! Or Fall to you and I, assuming you aren’t a die-hard PSL fan like the rest of them. While I love pumpkin, I prefer consuming it by eating it to truly let that pure, unadulterated pumpkin flavor shine. While it’s great with chocolate or caramel, marshmallow or peanut butter, I [Read more >>]

Graveyard Chocolate Doughnuts

I really want to take this time to personally thank the person who invented breakfast pastries. Croissants, doughnuts, danishes, muffins, cinnamon rolls, sticky buns, bear claws … thank you. Because without you, breakfast would essentially be eggs and oatmeal. And if breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal of the day, why not [Read more >>]
