cc-AppleStreuselCheesecake-06lw

Memorial Day is only a few days away and you know what that means… summer has officially begun! First and foremost, we must remember those who have served and died for our country. They paid the ultimate price for our freedom. Against the backdrop of barbecues and boating, it’s important to remember what Memorial Day [Read more >>]

Cinco de Mayo Mexican Spice Truffles

cb_MexicanSpiceTruffles-45b

I’m a huge fan of mixing sweet and heat and these Mexican Spice Truffles are indisputably one of my favorite recipes! It only seems appropriate that I share this with you on Cinco de Mayo. You’ll find yourself torn between eating the whole truffle in one bite, and making them last as long as possible. I think the latter is what [Read more >>]

Churro Chow {Gluten Free}

m_ChurroChow-65b

I got the idea for Churro Chow from a coworker and I am so excited about it! Not only does it taste exactly like a churro, but it might be one of the easiest treats you could ever make. It’s addictively good and I can’t help but think of my little sister and the summer my family [Read more >>]

Margarita Cake Balls

cb-margarita-9b

Margaritas. You can get them blended, on the rocks, in a can with beer, in a salt-rimmed glass the size of your head, and in candy like suckers and jelly beans. Just when you think the margarita has been served up in all the ways possible, along comes… The Margarita Cake Ball. These little delights [Read more >>]

Nothing Beets a Brownie!

b_BeetBrownies04b

Raise your hand if you like beets! Am I the only one raising my hand right now? Come on guys! In honor of Earth Day, I thought it might be fun to put a vegetable twist on an older recipe. I know, I know… it’s not technically Earth Day anymore, but every day should be Earth Day, right?? I [Read more >>]

Easter Bunny Pretzels

Bunny Pretzels

  When these cute Bunny Pretzels were originally posted two years ago, we had almost a foot of snow still on the ground and the snowman population was higher than what one hopes for in the spring. This year we have robins reappearing, buds on the trees, and grass that is almost green! Spring and [Read more >>]

Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Cookies

Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Cookies

I absolutely, positively cannot apologize for posting Valentine’s recipes early. For one, it’s my job. The second the Christmas candy goes on clearance and the heart-shaped candies come out, it’s game-on. And secondly, everyone is all rah-rah kale and diets in January. Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to run from the kale and ruin [Read more >>]

Trail Mix Clusters

Trail Mix Clusters

I’m not the biggest fan of working out, but I do love walking and hiking. There’s something so relaxing about mindlessly walking through nature, whether it be on a track at the local high school or on an actual trail somewhere on a mountain. Thankfully, there’s plenty of outdoorsy places for me to hike around [Read more >>]

Cannoli Bites

Cannoli Bites

When I first went to New York City, I was told — no, instructed – to get a cannoli. Seeing as they aren’t very popular where I live, I’d never had one but had heard so many fabulous things about this magical Italian dessert. So pretty much the second I stepped out of the airport, I [Read more >>]

Chocolate Dipped “Good Fortune” Cookies

Chocolate Dipped Good Fortune Cookies

I cannot believe that 2015 is this week. Seriously, I thought I was just celebrating 2014 last month — now you mean to tell me it’s already a new year?! In years past (when I was younger and chipper and able to stay up late), I would wait until midnight and run outside banging pots and [Read more >>]

50+ Christmas Treats Featuring CandiQuik!

CQ Christmas

Can you believe Christmas is in THREE days?!  I’m at a weird point where I can and I can’t… simply because I’m still so shocked at how close it is, yet I’m completely aware with all the lines, traffic, and Christmas music constantly swirling around my life. Tis the season! Anywho, since time is of [Read more >>]
