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 >>]
Sometimes I have a hard time focusing on one thing for a long period of time. I’ll be writing a blog post and go to check who commented on my last status update, then I remember an email I need to respond to, then I just need to check the weather… you know how it [Read more >>]
This tree has to be one of the most elegant and awesome desserts I’ve ever made! I won’t lead you on, it was a bit time consuming. I would highly suggest breaking it up into a 2-3 day project. Make your cake pop mixture on day 1. Coat and decorate your cake pops the following day and [Read more >>]
My stepmom, Esta, and I made this torte. Fact is, it’s pretty much a no-bake cheesekcake or cream pie (or whatever you wanna call it) with fresh Colorado peaches. I’m talkin about the juice-running-down-your-chin-n-forearm-when-you-bite-in, kind o’ peaches. You want to hear how yummy this is?! We brought this wonderful creation over to my grandparents house. My dad and grandparents [Read more >>]
Amazing, delicious, OMG, wow – why didn’t I think of these!?
Recently we had a little contest, that some of you may have heard of…if not, you seriously need to join Club CandiQuik…
The contest was named the “Make Our Ad” Contest. The Grand Prize Winner is receiving free CANDIQUIK for a year – yes, FREE (I need that deal)!
Oh – and did I mention her recipe is going to be featured in our next National Magazine ad?! Total bragging rights.
Here were the 3 finalists if you’re curious…
This recipe that I am about to share, however, did not “Make our Ad”. BUT it was dang good!
So I must share…
Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries.
I want to start by wishing all the mothers out there a Happy Early Mother’s Day! I recently saw a poll on facebook. It read: What do mother’s want most for Mother’s Day? So, what do Mom’s like receiving most on Mother’s Day? Drumroll please… The leading response was, “Anything their kids make them”. Awesome. They better [Read more >>]
Things I’m digging right now: Living my life like Julia Robert’s in “Eat, Pray, Love”. I’m totally down with gaining 10 lbs in Italy and exploring the world, you know? Weather warm enough to walk around in sandals. Bring on the heat! I promise I’ll never complain about being hot again, ever. Reminiscing with my bestie [Read more >>]
No oven required and perfect for the upcoming summer months… I think we’re still getting spring and summer in Minnesota. I mean… they were here last year. And the year before that. So they’re bound to show up eventually, right? I wasn’t sure whether to call these 1- sticky, gooey, yummy cheesecake pops or 2- lemon-raspberry cheesecake pops. I went with [Read more >>]
This weekend I baked. I baked more than I have ever baked on a single day in my twenty-something years of existence. I’m pretty sure we made over 250 cookies and treats between Jessica and I – ohh, and our little helper Jersey, who you will meet soon. We made these Ginger Spice [Read more >>]
I’m really into this no-bake cheesecake type thing. For several reasons: 1 – life is busy 2- this recipe is fast 3- it’s delicious 4- it can be any flavor combination you want simply by changing the flavor of pudding and/or candiquik (vanilla or chocolate based) 5- it’s scrumptious 6-anyone who indulges in it, [Read more >>]
