M&M Cookies

If you know anything about us Boyer women, you know we love a good cookie recipe. Growing up, my mother (Sharon) often had some sort of homemade cookies in the house… even if they were hidden away so we didn’t attempt to eat them all in one sitting. It was actually pretty rare to have store bought cookies […]

Chocolate-Dipped Butterfinger Shortbread Cookies

This month, I’m joining the Fantastical Food Fight, which is run by one of my favorite fellow food blogger, Sara from Fantastical Sharing of Recipes. Sarah chooses a different theme every month and all the bloggers playing alone create a recipe. You can find out more here. December’s theme is SHORTBREAD, which got me excited, […]

M&M Blondies

I’m usually not a huge fan of blondies… but add some M&Ms and I’m sold! Blondies are kind of a cross between a cookie and a brownie, using vanilla instead of chocolate flavors. Traditionally, they have white chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, or nuts, but the little taste of chocolate in the candy works really well […]

Chocolate Peanut Better Hemp Seed Truffles #Choctoberfest

I always though hemp seeds were just something really healthy people added to their smoothies. I didn’t think they were for me… Until now. Just Hemp Foods was one of our awesome sponsors for #Choctoberfest 2015, and they send over hulled hemp seeds, toasted hemp seeds, hemp oil, and hemp protein powder for me to […]

Mini Brownie Candy Trifles

Kitchen goodies always make an appearance under the Christmas tree in the Boyer household. This year Allison and I both received stackable cooling racks and frosting decorating kits, while Mom got a Nutri Bullet. Last year, our aunt gave Allison and I both Just Dessert Mini Bowls from Libbey. I thought I’d fill them for […]

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 […]

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 […]
