Nothing Beets a Brownie!

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 >>]

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 >>]

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 >>]

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 >>]

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 >>]

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 >>]

Witches Hats

For as long as I can remember, I was a HUGE Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen fan. I had all of their VHS tapes of their detective shows and movies, their Barbie dolls, their clothing line, everything. I played those poor VHS tapes until the actual tape was disintegrating from overexposure to singing twin girls. But [Read more >>]

Take 5 Bites

Is it just me, or is miniature food so much cuter and tastier than its larger counterparts? Think about it: petit fours are insanely more adorable than a larger cake.  Brownie bites are petite and sweet compared to a regular hunk of brownie.  And mini cupcakes?  Almost too cute to eat and definitely impossible to [Read more >>]

Strawberry Footballs

I can’t believe I’m about to admit this, but recently I’ve came to enjoy a football game or two. I’m not the person that must see every play and can’t move from the couch before a commercial appears – but I’m just saying that since I *somewhat* know the rules, it has become slightly more [Read more >>]
