No-Bake Apple Streusel Cheesecake

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 >>]

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 >>]

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 >>]

Eggnog Spice Cookies

Eggnog Spice Cookies

  Eggnog is one of those love-it or hate-it things that’s pretty divided into those two categories. Some people get SO excited for the holidays because of eggnog, and others cringe at the thought of it. And while I wish I could commit to a side, I’m honestly in the middle. Sometimes, I crave eggnog [Read more >>]

Rudolph Cookie Bites

Rudolph Cookie Bites

I just love these adorable, edible reindeer! When it comes to crafts, I’m best with food-related crafts. I’ve always been envious of the people who can take glittery picks and sparkly ribbon and create gorgeous wreaths. Or those who can take random household objects to create amazing, one-of-a-kind doodads, like a chandelier made of Mason [Read more >>]
