Support the Troops: Chocolate Red Wine Cupcakes with Cabernet Frosting

We don’t do a ton of sponsored posts here on The PinterTest Kitchen, but this is a cause I feel strongly about, since my boyfriend was in the Navy. I hope you’ll comment below for the chance to win the grand prize – $500 donated in your name to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. Wine? […]

Iced Butter Cookies

Last summer, my friend decided to come for a week-long beach vacation. That’s one of the advantages of living near the ocean – you get a lot of loved ones visiting! She and her husband brought their five kids. Yes, you read that right. FIVE! My house was bursting at the seams and I loved […]

Chocolate Buttermilk Pie

This pie definitely doesn’t have any calories. Or fat. Or sugar. At least, that’s what you’re going to have to tell yourself, because it is impossible not to eat several pieces of this pie. Over the course of two days, my boyfriend and I ate the whole thing. So much for being on a diet! […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie (Recipe and #PAMSmartTips Giveaway!)

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of PAM Cooking Spray. Back when I first started blogging, one of the first recipes I Pinter-tested was for a healthy cookie pie. While I still do love this recipe, sometimes there’s no substitute for the real thing. So today, I wanted to share with […]

Pumpkin Spice Pudding Cookies

Fall is here!! It’s clearly time for tons of pumpkin recipes. We all have our favorites, but sometimes you want something different. Have you seenĀ The Pinterest Pumpkin Project? It’s a great place for new pumpkin recipe ideas. These Pumpkin Spice Pudding Cookies are another one to add to the list! I’ve tried several of pudding […]

Chocolate Cake Mix Sugar Cookies

I love a good cake mix recipe. I’m always a fan when I can make something “homemade” that doesn’t take all day. And hey, no one has to know how easy it is! Lately, my “go to” cake mix recipe has been these delicious cool whip cookies, but I think I’ve found something I love […]

No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

I love recipes that do not require me to turn on the oven. The stove top is bad enough when it’s 100 degrees outside! Here in Virginia it is not 100 degrees outside yet. But I’m sure I can think up another excuse to make these no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies, right? Right! That’s the […]

Raspberry Chocolate Icing (No Eggs or Milk!)

Raspberry is one of my favorite non-chocolate flavors. So mix that with chocolate and I’m in love! A few weeks ago, I had a hankerin’ to make a chocolate cake. Nevermind that my boyfriend is deployed and I don’t have a roommate. It was my birthday and I had just moved to a brand new […]

Chocolate Coffee Pie

Today’s post is a short one, but I wanted to tell you all about an amazingly yummy recipe I stumbled upon because I’m a horrible planner. I didn’t have milk in the fridge. Or, well, not enough milk for the recipe I wanted to make. I was forced to improvise and the result was amazing. […]

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 timeĀ . 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 […]
