Red, White, and Blue Honey Taffy #CookoutWeek

Honey Taffy is super easy to make… there’s only one ingredient. Today is the last day of #CookoutWeek, and I wanted to create something red, white, and blue that is perfect for the 4th of July. Our sponsor The French Farm sent me some delicious honey, which is perfect for this recipe. I added in […]

Chocolate-Dipped Butterfinger Shortbread Cookies

This month, I’m joining the Fantastical Food Fight, which is run by one of my favorite fellow food blogger, Sara from Fantastical Sharing of Recipes. Sarah chooses a different theme every month and all the bloggers playing alone create a recipe. You can find out more here. December’s theme is SHORTBREAD, which got me excited, […]

Chocolate-Covered Patriotic Pretzels #CookoutWeek

You guys… this is pretty much the easiest, cutest idea in the world for any patriotic holiday, like Memorial Day, the 4th of July, Veteran’s Day, etc. I saw this idea from several different sources on Pinterest, so I just had to give it a go. They were a huge hit at a Memorial Day […]

M&M Blondies

I’m usually not a huge fan of blondies… but add some M&Ms and I’m sold! Blondies are kind of a cross between a cookie and a brownie, using vanilla instead of chocolate flavors. Traditionally, they have white chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, or nuts, but the little taste of chocolate in the candy works really well […]

Lindt Chocolate Truffle Cookie Cups

If you like to make cookies, here is a fancy cookie cup that isn’t hard to make but looks like you slaved away making it. The cookie uses three kinds of chocolate, (unsweetened cocoa powder, Lindt CLASSIC RECIPE milk chocolate and Lindt LINDOR truffles). Add this recipe to you cookie plates that you make up […]

Chocolate Peanut Better Hemp Seed Truffles #Choctoberfest

I always though hemp seeds were just something really healthy people added to their smoothies. I didn’t think they were for me… Until now. Just Hemp Foods was one of our awesome sponsors for #Choctoberfest 2015, and they send over hulled hemp seeds, toasted hemp seeds, hemp oil, and hemp protein powder for me to […]

The Best Gingerbread Recipe Ever #fbcookieswap

When I was a kid, my aunt made gingerbread one year, and thus began my obsession. My mother is affectionately known as the “cookie lady” in our neighborhood because she makes these huge delicious cookie platters to give away around the holidays, but she never made gingerbread. She probably skipped it because she already made […]

Funfetti Nerd Cupcakes

A few weeks before her birthday this year, I came across a pin for cupcakes that was perfect to make for her birthday treat! It’s basically funfetti cupcakes, only with nerds in the batter instead of sprinkles. I will warn you, these cupcakes do end up being super sweet. I brought these into our office […]

Mini Brownie Candy Trifles

Kitchen goodies always make an appearance under the Christmas tree in the Boyer household. This year Allison and I both received stackable cooling racks and frosting decorating kits, while Mom got a Nutri Bullet. Last year, our aunt gave Allison and I both Just Dessert Mini Bowls from Libbey. I thought I’d fill them for […]

Pinter-Mess: Apple Cider Caramels

I love apple cider. I love caramels. So why not try a recipe that combines the two? I had really high hopes for these apple cider caramels. I attempted making them a few days before my Christmas party last year, to serve to my guests. Let’s just say it’s a good thing I made so […]

Krispy Buckeye Candy

Being from Central Pennsylvania, we’re lifelong Penn State fans in the Boyer household. So, I’m not really a fan of anything called a “buckeye” (for those of you not into college sports, Ohio State’s mascot is the buckeye, and they’re a team in the same conference as Penn State). Fat kid confessional: My dislike for […]

Homemade Peanut Butter Club Sandwiches

Earlier this week, I posted a peanut butter doggie treat recipe, so I thought it only fair that I also post a human peanut butter treat as well! This recipe is for homemade club sandwiches. No, not the kind made with meat and cheese! These are the candy club sandwiches, like the ones you can […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Butterscotch Rice Krispie Treats

Most kids go crazy for rice krispie treats. I was never crazy about them when I was little. I think it’s because I’m not crazy about marshmallows. But I remember this peanut butter and chocolate kind that I actually did like, but it was discontinued after only a short time. Bummer… Cruising around Pinterest a little while […]

50+ Spooky Halloween Recipes…from Pinterest!

It’s now officially October and I no longer have to feel ashamed of obsessing over my October 31 costume or listening to the Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack on loop. Oh, who are we kidding. I wasn’t ashamed of those things before! :-p Seriously, though, I’ve been pinning recipes and other Halloween projects in anticipation of […]

Two-Ingredient Frosting Fudge

A recipe that’s easy, fast, and chocolate? Count me in. I saw this pin originally from Jillee, who pinned it from You Pinspire Me. I have no willpower for something called “five minute fudge,” especially when I already have all of the ingredients in my pantry. And I don’t keep a super well-stocked pantry; there […]
