Fall Instant Pot Giveaway

I know Labor Day is supposed to be the unofficial end of summer, but it is still in the 90s here. Our community closed the pool already, but man do we still need it! Still, for many people Labor Day is the start of a busier season, regardless of temperature. Kids back to school, offices […]

Grilled Pound Cake with Honey Vanilla Apples

This year, Chef Shamy was one of our delicious #CookoutWeek sponsors. Well, let me tell you, I am still enjoying their yummy flavored butters on pretty much everything. Thank goodness their butter comes in huge tubs! We were grilling recently and I wanted something sweet for dessert. But of course it has been so hot […]

Lemonade Cupcakes #CookoutWeek

I love lemon-flavored desserts during the summer. There’s just something about lemons and other citrus fruit that screams YAY SUMMERTIME to me. When I was thinking about doing a lemonade cupcake recipe for #CookoutWeek, I originally was considering raspberry lemonade or strawberry lemonade or some other fancy flavor. But you know what? My favorite thing […]

Frozen Root Beer Float Pops #CookoutWeek

Can I just start off by telling you how much I LOVE going to the thrift store? Seriously. The US’s biggest thrift store is not far from me and I love a good deal. Last time I stopped in, I found a set of 6 popsicle molds for 99 cents! On my way home from […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake Cookies

My mom makes the BEST chocolate peanut butter cake. The cake itself is chocolate, but then she tops it with peanut butter icing…. omg, SO GOOD y’all. And I’m not usually a big cake person. When Better Body Foods sent me some PBfit powdered peanut butter to try, I immediately thought about that cake. I […]

Chocolate Coffee Maple Cupcakes #BrunchWeek

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #Brunchweek recipes. All opinions are mine alone. Jeffrey officially started his new job this month! I was a ball of nerves waiting for him to get home to see how things went on […]

Frozen Strawberry Pie

! As I mentioned in my last post… I don’t like strawberries. When I tell people, they are genuinely horrified and confused. I get it. It’s how I feel when people tell me they don’t like chocolate. I mean… what? It’s chocolate. But my mom loves strawberries, and so does my husband, and so does […]

Shamrock Mint Sugar Cookies

Here in Norfolk, we take St. Patrick’s Day seriously! The neighborhood where I live, Ocean View, has a HUGE St. Patrick’s Day parade every year. We’re talking bagpipes, step dancers, and lots of random people dressed in green from head to toe. We were even in the parade last year with the animal shelter where […]

Chocolate Covered Shortbread Hearts #FoodBloggerLove

Back at Christmas Allison gave me a HUGE recipe book with over 400 recipes for cookies, brownies, biscuits, and other desserts. I’ve been paging through it marking recipes to test and experiment with for a while now. With Valentine’s Day coming it, I thought that this would be the perfect time to test one I […]

Chocolate Sweet Potato Mini Cakes #FoodBloggerLove

Today is #FoodBloggerLove, which is a day where a group of my food blogger friends and I share the love with some awesome Valentine’s Day themed recipes! I actually love Valentine’s Day. Well, love is perhaps a strong word, but I don’t have the negative reaction that some people have to the holiday. I think […]

Chocolate Coconut Oil Cookies

I’m having a bit of a love affair with cocoa lately… Back in October, Rodelle was a blog sponsor here on The PinterTest Kitchen for #Choctoberfest, and they sent us some high-quality Dutch processed baking cocoa to test out. Oh mama, was that stuff good! This post is not sponsored by Rodelle in any way… […]

Apple Pie Bites

I’m always on the lookout for bite-sized recipes that are perfect for parties and potlucks. The other day, the mini Athens phyllo shells were on sale, so I decided to whip up some apple pie bites, based loosely on a recipe I saw on the Athens website. Oh mama, are they good! They’re just the […]

Chocolate Orange Cookies with White Chocolate Drizzle

I love the flavors of chocolate and orange together, especially around the holidays. It always makes me think of Terry’s chocolate oranges (YUM). I always thought chocolate and orange was a weird combination, but my dad liked the chocolate oranges. One time, I tried a slice and OH MAMA I was hooked ever since! I […]

Nutty Florentine Cookies (Gluten-Free) #FBLCookieExchange

I love this time of year. When I was a kid, I can remember being SO excited about Christmas break. I was a pretty nerdy kid and liked learning, so it wasn’t necessarily that I didn’t want to go to school. I just was always super excited for Christmas. I love seeing people’s faces when […]

Holiday Gingerbread Spritz Cookies #FBLcookieexchange

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! It’s #FBLcookieexhange time guys! We food bloggers get together and exchange holiday cookies with each other. I received some really good ones in this year… Lemon Gooey Butter Cookies from Erin at The Spiffy Cookie Chia Eggnog Cookies with Rumchata Icing from Starr at Chicago Foodie Girl and Crystallized […]
