S’More Cups

I know, I know, this food blog was a little quiet in April and part of May and then in the last couple weeks I have hit you hard with amazing desserts. Here’s the thing – I was super busy traveling, getting ready to move and trying to eat super healthy and lose some weight. I can’t […]

Death by Chocolate M&M Magic Bars

Holiday weekends are my time to shine in the kitchen. For Memorial Day this year, we headed to spend some extra time with family before our big move next month. Like I’ve said before, there is an unsaid expectation that I will make something fabulously sweet when I’m visiting. It’s expected that within 24 hours, […]

Magic Turtle Bars

I’m going to be honest, I am on a roll this weekend. I haven’t made too many treats since returning from Hawaii in February and jumping feet first into a healthy eating kick. I caught a glimpse of myself in a swimsuit on video that trip and it wasn’t good. Clearly, this Memorial Day weekend is […]

Oreo Truffle Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Today was a sad and happy day all at the same time! Our Illinois neighbors threw us a going away party since we are saying goodbye to IL at the end of the month. Sad because we LOVE these friends and hate to leave them behind but happy because we are ready for our new […]

Sugar Cookie Pinwheel Cookies

  Easter is this weekend which means it is time to make some yummy treats for all those family get-togethers. I’m in charge of bringing cookies to the in-laws this year so I think this may be the perfect Happy Spring-would-it-please-stop-snowing-in-Chicago treat! I made these last month during spring break and they were a hit. […]

Mini Peanut Butter Pretzel Crisp Sandwiches

  We had a special delivery on Friday afternoon just in time for after school snack time! It’s was a tasty surprise to find an entire bag of Pretzel Crisps in all the different flavors on our front steps courtesy of Pretzel Crisps. Yes, I knew they were coming but I didn’t know when. While […]

Two Ingredient “Healthier” Cupcakes

Yep, still on my healthy eating kick and I’m at three weeks and going strong. I’m not sure how much weight I’ve lost because I didn’t weigh myself at the beginning. I knew I gained some weight over the holidays, and honestly, didn’t want to know how much. Plus, the scale is just a mean, […]

Chocolate Covered Caramel Pretzel Crisps

I’ve said it before – holiday baking is still in full effect! I’m visiting with my family over the holidays and there are A LOT of us! Lots of people to eat all my goodies, so I’m making a ton this week! Plus, get me together with my sister-in-law Katie, and crazy, yummy baking happens. […]

S’Mores Bark Recipe

Beware! If you are on a diet (which is just wrong during the holidays, by the way!), you might want to steer clear of my food posts for the next week or so. Holiday baking is in full effect at my house! Cakes, brownies, cookies, candy – we are making it all. This morning we […]

Christmas Morning Breakfast Ideas

My family always does a special brunch on Christmas. My mom makes quiche and coffee cake, we have hot chocolate and open our stockings and just enjoy being together before we open our presents throughout the day. While Christmas dinner is the meal that gets all the hype and attention, I thought it would be […]
