Chocolate Apple Pie #Choctoberfest

It is the perfect time of year to load up on apples… and this week is also #Choctoberfest, which means that it is also the perfect time of year to load up on chocolate. So… why not a recipe that combines both? My version of Chocolate Apple Pie is based on a recipe from from […]

Easy Red Velvet Cupcakes

When I asked Jeffrey what flavor of cupcake he wanted for our wedding reception, it wasn’t even a contest.. he wanted red velvet. He […]

German Chocolate Cupcakes

I’m the go-to girl in the neighborhood when someone is having a birthday… but I hate making cake! Okay, maybe hate is a strong word, but even though I have some favorite cake recipes (like this carrot cake) I usually prefer making cupcakes instead. This time around, my neighbor was turning 40 and his wife […]

Chocolate Key Lime Pie

Everything is better with chocolate, right? I have to admit, I was skeptical about chocolate with key lime pie at first. I do love chocolate-dipped frozen key lime pie, though, so I though, “Why not give it a try?” I’m so glad I did! Everything is better with chocolate. This just proves it. What makes […]

Mini Blood Orange and Chocolate Trifles

Orange and chocolate is one of those timeless combinations that always seems to work. The tangy brightness of the citrus… the sweet, deep flavors of the chocolate… is your mouth watering yet? My email inbox is overflowing, often with requests from food brands to try their products. More often than not, I say no, simply […]

“Pot of Gold” Miniature Rainbow Cupcakes

I’m so darn proud of these cupcakes. Have you ever tried a recipe that you were sure was going to be a flop? That’s how I felt with this recipe. I was sure that the rainbow batter was going to blob together and create an ugly gray mess. Boy, was I wrong! SUPER WRONG! These […]

Moon Pie Cupcakes

Every year for Valentine’s Day, I make my fiance Jeffrey some kind of special dessert. Well this year, I decided to do something different. We went to the grocery store, and I let him pick any ingredient in the whole store for me to make his Valentine’s Day dessert. As you can imagine if you […]

Orange Chocolate Chip Bread

Earlier this week, I picked up some delicious pink cara cara naval oranges at the supermarket on a whim. I usually get those mini mandarin oranges, but I’m so glad I picked something different this time around. They are delicious! If I cut one open in the kitchen, my whole house smells like citrus. Mmm. […]

Triple Hot Chocolate with Homemade Whipped Cream

When I was a kid, I remember the spark in the air the night before a snowfall. We would be jumping out of our skin, listening to the radio and hoping for a snow day, with enough of the white stuff that my dad would have to create tall mounds of it as he plowed […]

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 Caramel Cookies

Christmas is right around the corner. Are you looking for a quick and easy cookie to make ¬†for a party or just need another cookie for your cookie trays? These chocolate caramel cookies are perfect. All it takes is a Devils Food cake mix, eggs, canola oil, and a bag of mini rolos. What is […]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love the combination of pumpkin and chocolate. These cookies pack a lot of flavor into a single bite or two. In the past, I made pumpkin spice cookies using pumpkin pudding mix, but I wanted to find a cookie with a more prominent pumpkin flavor. These fit the bill! I used milk chocolate chips […]

Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake with Chocolate Drizzle

Do you want to make a coffee cake that is moist and delicious and easy to make? Stupid question. Of course you do! I love coffee cake because it can be breakfast, dessert, or a mid-day snack. I had some fresh raspberries in the refrigerator and needed something to do with them, so I decided […]

Iced Coffee with Chocolate Ice Cubes #Choctoberfest

Y’all… I have a new obsession: Caveman Coffee! This year, Caveman signed up to be a Silver Sponsor for #Choctoberfest. Thank goodness they did, because I had never heard of them before, and I was missing out! I received their White Gold coffee, which has a light, nutty flavor and a creamy texture. I’m usually […]

Easy Mini Chocolate Cream Tarts #Choctoberfest

I love happy accidents! The last time I made cupcakes, I tried out a delicious buttercream recipe (with added chocolate)… but it ended up making almost double what I actually needed to frost my cupcakes. I hate wasting anything, but I didn’t feel like mixing up another batch of cupcakes. So instead, I added some […]
