Candy Bag Bark

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 >>]

Pumpkin Spice Pretzel Fudge

Pumpkin Spice Fudge

Happy Pumpkin Spice Latte Season! Or Fall to you and I, assuming you aren’t a die-hard PSL fan like the rest of them. While I love pumpkin, I prefer consuming it by eating it to truly let that pure, unadulterated pumpkin flavor shine. While it’s great with chocolate or caramel, marshmallow or peanut butter, I [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 >>]

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!}

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

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 >>]
