Caramel Brownies with Whipped Cream

It’s National Peanut Butter Day! So of course, even though we’ve been posting lots of chocolate and peanut butter recipes recently (like these cookies or how about these), today’s recipe features caramel instead. I work in mysterious ways. My sister, Jess, is a HUGE fan of caramel, so when she was planning to come to […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

I always like to try new recipes, which is one of the reasons I like Pinterest so much. It’s an endless source of new recipes to test out. Today’s cookies were inspired by a recipe I pinned was for chocolate raspberry cookies from Paula Dean. I wanted to try them, but I didn’t have the […]

Reese’s Peanut Butter Heart Cookies

Do you need a sweet treat for Valentine’s Day for your sweetheart? Instead of the traditional heart boxes of chocolate candy, bake some cookies! Chocolate and peanut butter are one of my favorite combinations, so I just had to try these cookies, which are originally from i heart nap time . I found the Reeses peanut […]

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 […]

How To Make A Box of Brownies Better… With Wine!

Everyone loves a good brownie. They’re a crowd favorite. Plus, with all the different boxes mixes available today, they’re quick and super easy. But plain ole brownies can be boring sometimes. You can make a box of brownies a little fancier by adding m&ms, pretzels, nuts, or even sprinkles on top. Why not try something […]

Banana Oatmeal Cookies

We’ve all had one time or another when we accidentally let some bananas get overripe. Well what do you do then? Throw them out? No way! You could make banana bread again or put them in the freezer to save for later. Why not try something different? I found these banana oatmeal cookies in the […]

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 […]

Dark Chocolate Apricot Cookies

Betty Crocker has some great recipes out there. When I started cooking, my mom (Lena) gave me a Betty Crocker cookbook containing all of the basics, almost the same as the one she had when she started cooking. Two years ago, I was in line at the grocery store and I spied Betty Crocker’s Christmas […]

Gooey Chocolate Pudding Cake

We all have certain recipes in our repertoire that are full-proof, that we can come back to again and again because we know they’ll always be good. That’s how I feel about this Gooey Chocolate Pudding Cake. It’s the most forgiving recipe I know. True story: one time, I was half-way through the recipe before […]

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 […]

Chocolate Cream Cheese Surprise Cupcakes

No “pinspiration” today – this is a recipe straight from my childhood. Growing up, these chocolate cream cheese surprise cupcakes were one of my favorite treats. Forget any Tastykake or Hostess cupcake out there. These are like, ten times better than anything you can buy. Plus, there’s a secret surprise in the middle. Who doesn’t […]

Red Velvet Thumbprint Cookies

I love red velvet. I love cookies. Oh and did I mention I love white chocolate too? This recipe for red velvet thumbprints seemed like an obvious choice to test out. Plus it’s not your normal, everyday chocolate chip cookie. It’s something that’s a little different and out of the ordinary. The best part is […]

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Brownies

I’m a fan of easy cake mix recipes, since I’m not as good of a baker as Jess and our Mom (Sharon). Everyone I know loves the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies our family makes, and the Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins I made a few months ago were a big hit. But there’s always room in the […]

How to Make A Box Cake Mix Taste Better

My roommate, Leighann, has been super supportive of all the Pinter-Testing going on in our kitchen…even when the ultimate product is a complete mess! So, when her birthday rolled around a few weeks ago, I wanted to do something special for her. Of course, I headed to Pinterest to see what I could come up […]

Quick and Easy S’mores Bars

During my last semester of college, my roommate and I had late night chocolate craving all the time. Can you blame us? We were getting ready for our senior art show, job searching, and trying to figure out our futures! It quickly became a common occurrence to smell a batch of these gooey s’mores bars baking up […]
