Mini Chocolate Pecan and Walnut Tarts #Choctoberfest

Who doesn’t like chocolate and nuts together?  I think it is the combination of sweet and salty that we crave. Whenever I eat chips, I end up having a piece of chocolate to top it off. So for #Choctoberfest with Imperial Sugar, I knew I wanted to make a recipe that combines these two tasty […]

White Chocolate Doughnut Poppers #Choctoberfest

When Allison and I started planning #Choctoberfest with Imperial Sugar, I automatically was put in charge of coming up with some white chocolate recipes since I LOVE it and my sister is not a fan. Loving white chocolate is something I share with our dad. Growing up, my mom would have to search for white chocolate […]

Grandma’s Chocolate Frosted Brownies #Choctoberfest

Like most grandmothers out there, our Grandma Lenker is known for certain dishes – homemade, hand-kneaded cinnamon swirl bread, drop sugar cookies, cherry pie… and chocolate frosted brownies! Since this week is #Choctoberfest with Imperial Sugar, I thought there would be no better way to start it off than by sharing her recipe. To make […]

Sweet Strawberry Cream Cheese Cookies

Once again it is strawberry season in Pennsylvania. I was looking for a cookie recipe using fresh strawberries from my garden, and I came across this recipe from OMG Chocolate Desserts. I like soft and chewy cookies, and when I read the recipe, I saw it had cream cheese, fresh strawberries, and white chocolate. Those […]

Orange Chocolate Chip Scones with Vanilla-Orange Glaze

So here’s the thing… I already have a favorite scone recipe. I’ve been open to other types of scones, and have even made these double chocolate banana scones in the past. They were delicious. But nothing can hold a candle to the scone recipe I got from my friend’s grandmother. These come close. I’ll be […]

Millionaire Shortbread Bars #secretrecipeclub

It’s Secret Recipe Club Reveal Day! Every month, our group “trades” blogs and makes one another’s recipes – and this month, our assignment was Searching for Spice. Corina has a huge index of recipes, but of course, we had to go for the desserts…and although we were tempted by other recipes, such as her Banana […]

Chocolate Earthquake Cookies #secretrecipeclub

I cannot tell you guys how excited I am that we got to SPRING FORWARD this weekend. I am so ready for winter to be done after the past month we’ve had here in southern Virginia. You expect this kind of thing in Pennsylvania, where my mom and sister live, but not here! Though I […]

Chocolate Almond Spritz Cookies – My Happy Accident Cookies

Sometimes the best recipes are happy accidents. One time, for example, I made a pie with iced coffee because I forgot to pick up milk at the store, and now that’s how I make the recipe every time! This recipe came into existence because my boyfriend Jeffrey is super nosy! I was in the cookie […]

Easy Chocolate Kahlua Souffle – Made in Your Blender!

This year, we spent New Year’s Eve with Jeffrey’s family in Alabama, which was a fun change of pace. I love being around friends and family to ring in the new year! Everyone brought drinks to share, and we sat around the campfire chatting and watching the neighbors set off fireworks. I brought hot chocolate […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

In my house, we love chocolate chip cookies. But…although my mom gave me an amazing chocolate chip pudding cookie recipe, sometimes I’m not in the mood for scooping out cookies. Y’all have to admit, that as a dessert, cookies are pretty high-maintenance. So, when my boyfriend requested chocolate chip cookies for the millionth time last […]

Ultimate S’mores Dessert

Just a really quick post for today, Pinter-Testers! I sent out the above picture on Instagram and Facebook the other day, and one of my friends said that it was the most delicious picture I’ve ever taken! I have to agree – but the picture is nothing compared to the real thing! I told my […]

Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Summer is here (well, for a few more weeks at least!). Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables are available from the gardens. What do you do with it all if you have your own garden? My mom is supplying me with tomatoes, cucumbers, corn, green beans and zucchinis. We freeze some of the fresh veggies, […]

Double Chocolate Banana Scones

I love a warm scone and tall glass of iced coffee in the morning. And trust me, I don’t love much in the morning. Until about an hour after I wake up, I speak more in growls and grunts than actual sentences, unlike my boyfriend and mother who both have the annoying gene that causes […]

Fudgy Chocolate Zucchini Brownies

Gooey, fudgy brownies are the best. The. Best. I don’t mean to offend those of you who like more cake-style brownies, but you’re wrong. This recipe is not only fudgy, but includes zucchini, which means it counts as a vegetable side dish. At least, that’s what I’m telling myself to avoid the all-too-appropriate fact that […]

White Chocolate and Peanut Butter Pudding Cookies

I am always looking for a new cookie recipe to make. And the easier the better! Because as you know, we don’t have a lot of time these days to cook and bake. I have tested out quite a few of the pudding cookie recipes; white chocolate puddding snickerdoodles, peanut butter pudding cookies, and chocolate […]
