Scarecrow Oreo Pops

Fall is, by far, my favorite season. There’s nothing like cuddling up at night and watching a movie by the fire; drinking piping hot, fresh-pressed apple cider; going pumpkin or apple-picking; the homey scents of cinnamon, nutmeg, apple, and clove; the baking that comes along with those same scents; scarves; boots; chunky-knit sweaters… the list is [Read more >>]

Frankenstein Twinkie Pops {And Monster Twinkie Pops!}

frank

So I apologize to anyone in advance, but when it comes to Halloween, I get way too excited and immediately lose all semblance of willpower around bright bags of chocolate candy, pumpkin everything, spooky decor, and Halloween treats. It’s like the second stores break out the pumpkin goodies and plastic bat decorations, my mind kind [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 >>]

Funfetti Cake Batter Muddy Buddies

CQFunfetti

Ah, Back-to-School time.  Can’t you just smell the fresh pencils and notebook paper in the air?  Even though I’m no longer a student, I still get giddy over the Back-to-School season.  There’s something so refreshing about a brand new, fresh start – a new school-year, new memories, new classes… and of course, new school supplies!  [Read more >>]

Chocolate BaNilla Wafer Bites

BaNilla-Bites-11b

Things I accomplished this past Saturday: three naps, eating an unruly amount of these treats, and 20 sit-ups. The 20 sit-ups were out of pure guilt for my previous lack of accomplishments. Between the road trip, being awake at approximately 5 a.m. (or earlier) for the past eight days, and going back to work eight hours after returning [Read more >>]

Pumpkin Dog Biscuits

Today I bring you a different kind of treat. It doesn’t involve cake, frosting, or even cookies. But it’s still decadent and finger paw-lickin’ good - depending on who you ask.

Throwback Thursday – Homemade Butterfingers and Key Lime Pie Cups!

key lime pie cups by Confessions of a Cookbook Queen

1. Throwback [throh-bak] A sudden reminder of the past. This can be brought about by hearing a song from high school, seeing an ex, etc. Similar to a flashback. Mid-Century swimsuits. Retro bra tops. Zigzag and chevron everything. Cropped tops. Plastic/Vinyl shoes (remember jellies!?), throwback sports jerseys…even sodas now(!)…the list goes on. Some things shouldn’t come back. But [Read more >>]

Pinocchio Cake Pops!

Pinocchio Cake Pops by Miss CandiQuik

Isn’t he just so dang cute?! I love his facial expressions. Do young kids even know who Pinocchio is? I sure hope so, otherwise this is going to be a total fail. These would be adorable to have at a birthday party. In fact, I’m going to make sure my kids see every classic Disney movie. Have [Read more >>]

Personal Vanilla Berry Cream Pies

Personal Vanilla Berry Cream Pie (in mason jars!) from Miss CandiQuik

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 >>]
