Pinterest desserts we tested.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Chocolate-Dipped Hazelnut Shortbread

Every year, I use the holidays as an opportunity to test out new cookie recipes – and this year was no exception. My annual Christmas party featured several new recipes, most from Pinterest of course. I didn’t hear any of my friends complaining! One of the Pinterest recipes I tested out was this one 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 […]

Snickerdoodle Muffins That Make You Go Mmm…

Exciting news readers! I recently turned one of my biggest freelance clients into a full time position within the company! Now I have to wake up at a normal time every weekday (okay, that’s not so exciting), put on my big girl pants, and go off to work. But wait! Doesn’t this mean you don’t […]

Flower Sugar Cookies

Once in a while, a seemingly awesome idea from Pinterest doesn’t work out. But it’s awesome recipes and ideas like these Flower Sugar Cookies one that keep me coming back for more and more. When I first saw a pinned image of someone cutting a ball of dough with a pair of scissors, it immediately […]

Two-Ingredient Pumpkin Cookies

With the holidays coming up, I’ve been on the look out recently for new easy cookie recipes on Pinterest. I’m willing to test out any cookie that sounds yummy, especially when the recipe involves spicing up a cake or cookie mix. It can’t get any easier than that! Remember Allison’s So-Easy-You-Want-to-Kiss-Someone Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins? Two¬†ingredients. […]

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 […]

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

We love our red velvet around here. If you haven’t seen them already, we’ve posted iced red velvet cookies and red velvet thumbprint cookies. But today’s recipe takes the cake (no pun intended). They’re annoying to make, but this is the absolutely best red velvet treat out there for those of you who love red […]

Red Velvet Cookies

*Papa Boyer is in the hospital right now getting heart surgery. We’re all praying for a speedy recovery (and planning some healthy recipes for his return). Thoughts and prayers are definitely appreciated.* Any red velvet cookie always deserves a second look from me. Our whole family likes red velvet goodies. This Red Velvet Cookie recipe […]

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 […]

Perfect Pumpkin Bread

With the fall season here, I like to make pumpkin bread. I usually get a neck pumpkin and cut it up and cook it until soft. Then I run it through the food mill and have fresh pumpkin puree. The puree can be used for baking or put in the freezer for later use. If […]
