Jar Brownies (A Treat And A Gift!) #Choctoberfest

Brownies are such a common, but absolutely loved chocolate treat. Boxed mixes are so handy and easy, but this is my go to recipe when I want to made 100% homemade brownies! They’re have more of a cakey consistency than a gooey one, which I personally prefer. Our family has had this recipe in our recipe books so long […]

Chocolate Sugar Cookies with Raspberry Wine Drizzle #Choctoberfest

It’s #Choctoberfest! How about a yummy chocolate cookie to brighten your day? I work at Benigna’s Creek Winery here in Central Pennsylvania, and I am always on the lookout for tasty recipes we can use at our events. This year, we’re giving out cookie cutters during one event, so I wanted some kind of rolled […]

Fudgy Brownie Cheesecake #Choctoberfest

I love cheesecake like a Golden Girl, and I don’t care who knows it! This fudgy cheesecake is filled with chocolatey richness, and you don’t have to be intimidated to make it. Cheesecake isn’t always the easiest dessert to bake, but if you get some cracks (like I always do), just cover ’em up with […]

Glazed Chocolate Cake Donuts #Choctoberfest

In our family, kitchen gadgets and products are common holiday gifts. I think between myself, my sister, and my mother, we have about every one out there. A year or so ago, Santa left a donut pan for me under the Christmas tree. I had never attempted to make donuts (fried or baked) and was excited […]

Chocolate Funfetti Cookies #Choctoberfest

You can’t go wrong with cake mix cookies. Even if you think you aren’t a good baker, it is really, really hard to mess up these cookies! All you have to do is mix up the cookies and then add 1/2 cup of sprinkles. Kids love ’em… and so do adults! The last time I […]

Peanut Butter Banana Fudgesicles #Choctoberfest

Thank you to Barlean’s for providing the product used in this recipe! All opinions are my own. Peanut butter and chocolate… hands down, this is my favorite flavor combination! This year for #Choctoberfest, my mom found a recipe for fudgesicles with peanut butter, so I knew we had to give it a try. It also […]

Puff Pastry Apple Roses

With the fall season in full swing, we always like to try out new desserts made with apples. I was watching The Chew one day and they made a rose with puff pastry and apples. They were so pretty that I decided to try my hand at making them, even though I usually prefer quick […]

White Sangria Popsicles #CookoutWeek

#CookoutWeek is winding down, and I’m looking forward to trying out the yummy recipes bloggers have been posting. I wanted to end the week on a sweet note, with a recipe that is great for a hot summer day. When it is 90° and humid outside, doesn’t a fruity popsicle taste perfect? And it’s even […]

Chocolate-Covered Patriotic Pretzels #CookoutWeek

You guys… this is pretty much the easiest, cutest idea in the world for any patriotic holiday, like Memorial Day, the 4th of July, Veteran’s Day, etc. I saw this idea from several different sources on Pinterest, so I just had to give it a go. They were a huge hit at a Memorial Day […]

Lemonade Cookie Cups #CookoutWeek

What’s summer without tall glasses of lemonade? It’s perfect on those sweltering days when even the AC can’t keep you cool. These cookie cups have all the delicious flavors of a glass of lemonade in a convenient bite-sized form, so they’re perfect if you want a dessert or snack at your next cookout. (They are […]

Butterscotch Cupcakes with Butterscotch Icing

Show of hands, who here has/had a grandmother whose pockets and/or purse always seemed to have a few Werther’s Original butterscotch candies in them? That’s what I thought… everyone in the world can put your hand down. These cupcakes pack all of the punch of a Werther’s Original and then some. I actually found the […]

Mini Red Velvet Cookie Cups

Back in February, I made Itty-Bitty Strawberry Cookie Cups for #FoodBloggerLove, and the recipe was such a hit that I tried out some other flavors too. My husband Jim loves red velvet, so of course mini red velvet cookie cups went over really well in our house. He wished they weren’t so tiny, but that’s […]

How to Make Cheesecake Filling for Cake

When I originally started writing this blog post, I called it “Chocolate Bundt Cake with Cream Cheese Filling.” But let’s be honest. This recipe is all about the cream cheese filling, which tastes just like cheesecake baked in the middle of your bundt cake. The chocolate cake recipe doesn’t actually matter, because it is just […]

Rainbow Fizzies (Non-Alcoholic)

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, and we have a huge party every year. Our neighborhood had a giant parade followed by a block party, so it is really fun to set up tables of food on our front porch and meet everyone as they walk by. My sister and dad come down […]

Flourless Coconut Oil Brownies (No Dairy, No Sugar)

A few months ago, Jeffrey and I decided to have some friends over, as we often do on weekends. Since he’s ex-Navy, a lot of our friends are single military guys, which means they don’t get home-cooked meals or baked good very often. I love cooking for the boys! And stealing their keys when they’ve […]

35+ Pink & Red Valentine’s Day Desserts

Valentine’s Day weekend is finally upon us! Jeffrey and I are having a low-key weekend at home, but I something kind of fun this year. Every year, I make him some kind of yummy dessert for Valentine’s Day, and usually I just let him choose something from the blog or one of my Pinterest boards. […]
