Easter Best Peeps


Around this time every year, Peeps start to come out in hordes. They’re literally everywhere which is ok with me because I love these little creatures, but I love them even more when they’re coated in chocolate or vanilla. As I recently shared over on Instagram, there are two kinds of people when it comes [Read more >>]

Easy Cookie Cutter Fudge


Hot holiday hint: everyone loves edible gifts. I like baking for people because one can only have so many pairs of slippers or mini bottles of scented lotion, but there really is no such thing as too many desserts. Especially around the holidays, am I right?! Fudge has always been one of my favorite holiday treats [Read more >>]

Honey Thyme Truffles


There’s no doubt about it, farmers markets are one of the best parts of summer! I love nothing more than an early morning trip to the market with my coffee in hand. Remember how much I love coffee? Anyway, back to the market… There’s just something about all the colors, sounds, and smells that makes for the [Read more >>]

Cinco de Mayo Mexican Spice Truffles


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 >>]

Vanilla Dipped Blueberries

Vanilla Dipped Blueberries - the perfect light snack!

This summer has been c-r-a-z-y. A good type of crazy though – besides the fact that it’s slipping by all too fast! Isn’t that always the case? Things I’ve accomplished this summer: road trip to Colorado with the pups, horseback riding, restaurant hopping, volunteering, traveling for work… Things that I haven’t been so good at [Read more >>]

Orange Creamsicle Puppy Chow


As I’m writing this post, I’m seriously wishing I still had a bowl of this puppy chow in my kitchen. But I don’t. Pretty sure I ate the entire batch with the help of a lot of friends (ok, two.) in a matter of minutes. I found myself digging through the bowl looking for the [Read more >>]

Peanut Butter Truffle Spoons


Do you ever have one of those days where you just want to eat peanut butter straight from the jar? Please tell me I’m not the only one… One of those days where nothing seems desirable except stuffing your face with whatever sweets you can find?! Yeah, these are great for those days. They’d also be [Read more >>]

Carrot Chocolate Strawberries

I just realized I *almost* forgot to share these with you! I made them over a year ago after seeing them online and didn’t get around to making them until after Easter. So I made them, took photos, and told myself I’ll remember to post them in the Spring when it’s close to Easter. Yeah umm, I almost [Read more >>]
