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 […]

Pinter-MESS: Lemon Brownies That Went From Bad To Worse

As we’ve learned here at The PinterTest Kitchen before, sometimes a recipe turns out to be a huge Pinter-Mess regardless of how good it sounds or looks. Remember my chocolate and caramel microwave mug cake? or Allison’s nasty jello cookies? Those both were just plain bad. Back when our Mom first signed-up for Pinterest, I […]

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 […]

Light Peach Pie

When peaches are in season, this Light Peach Pie recipe is refreshing and easy to make. I pinned a version of this recipe from Danielle Kronmuller, who pinned it from Taste of Home. The original recipe is for a light strawberry pie which I’ve also made before, but I just happened to have some fresh […]

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 […]

End-Of-Summer Sunshine Wine Cake

If you’re anything like us Boyer women, a recipe calling for wine always sounds like a good idea. This Sunshine Wine Cake is great for your end-of-summer celebration. It’s easy to make and is perfect to make to night before a party. This cake is a joint effort coming from both myself and my mother […]

Peanut Butter Pudding Cookies

Have you tried our mom Sharon’s Chocolate Pudding Cookies from last month? We’ve made those cookies several times since then and they never last long! So when I found a recipe for a peanut butter pudding cookie I wanted to test it out right away. Special thanks to Michael Wurm, Jr. for pinning this so it showed […]

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 […]

Rainbow Swirl Sugar Cookies

We all have our good old stand by cookie recipes that we love to make all the time. Pinterest is a place to find cool new ideas to mix it up once in a while. These colorful swirled cookies seemed like just that. Notice how I said seemed? Yeah, that’s because in theory, it’s a […]

Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

We’re all about quick and easy recipes here on the PinterTest Kitchen, and this is one of my quickest/easiest. I made my first batch last Christmas and they were such a hit that they are now a go-to recipe in my arsenal. The credit actually goes to my mom (Sharon) for finding this recipe, but […]

Quick and Easy Mini Cinnamon Rolls

These mini cinnamon rolls are quick and easy to make for breakfast, for a snack or a quick dessert. You should get 2 tubes of crescent rolls right away. I would make a double batch right away because they will not last. This recipe is a version I pinned from Michael Wurm, Jr. who pinned […]
