Day of the Dead Cupcake Cake (Chocolate Cinnamon Cupcakes) #Choctoberfest

It can’t be #Choctoberfest without a chocolate cupcake recipe! Recently, I watched the movie Coco for the first time. I had always thought sugar skulls were pretty, but I loved learning more about Dia de los Muertos, also known as Day of the Dead. This is a Mexican holiday all about remembering your loved ones. […]

Easy Chocolate Chip Mini Sticky Buns #Choctoberfest

Thank you to Barlean’s for sponsoring this recipe! When I was in college, I was always the one to bring sweet treats to movie nights and birthdays. Brownies were my go to, but my mini sticky buns were the most requested! I’ve wanted to share this recipe for some time. Since it’s #Choctoberfest this week, […]

Crunchy Honey Cinnamon Chickpeas #FantasticalFoodFight

Fellow bloggers, do not forget to sign up for #Choctoberfest 2017. Sign ups close on Oct 1. If you want me to run the other direction, feed me healthy snack food. Seriously, pretty much every “healthy” quick grab-and-go snack I’ve tasted might as well be cardboard. When I need a pick-me-up during the day and […]

Homemade Brown Sugar Cinnamon Toaster Pastries #RecipeMakeover

It’s #RecipeMakeover week… which means we’re all rethinking recipes into lighter, healthier versions. I have to admit, I would not call my usual diet healthy. I’m a super picky eater and love sweet treats. So when thinking about what food to recreate in a bit healthier way, I went right to the things I eat all […]

Apple Cinnamon Sangria

It’s the perfect time of year for sangria! Most people think of sangria as a summery drink, but the truth is that you can tailor your sangria to the season by using different fruits, spices, wines, and alcohols. How about a nice apple cinnamon punch for the holidays? Added bonus: it looks really pretty on […]

Banana Snickerdoodle Cookies (Vegan!)

When our neighbors, Kevin and Pam, moved in next door a few years ago, I took them a plate of cookies to say welcome to the neighborhood. They were super surprised – I guess most people don’t bother doing stuff like that anymore! But my parents always taught me to keep a good relationship with […]

Cinnamon Pumpkin Pancakes

The other day I made some pumpkin bread and I had some extra pumpkin puree left. Our family loves pumpkin bread, but I wanted to use the extra pumpkin to try something new. What to make with it? I only had a 1/2 cup left. Don’t you just hate that, when you only have a […]

Quick Cinnamon Swirl Bread

I enjoy making quick breads. They aren’t as time consuming as a yeast bread and you have something wonderful when you are done. I was in a baking mood the other day and was searching for a new quick bread recipe. I came across a version of the cinnamon swirl bread on Something Swanky. Reading […]

Chunky Applesauce Cinnamon Pancakes

I was looking around for something different to make for breakfast that didn’t involve a whole lot of extra ingredients and time. Sometimes you get sick of the usual eggs, toast or cereal. I came across a Taste of Home recipe for Cinnamon Applesauce Pancakes, which I pinned. It looked simple to make and had […]

Rich & Creamy Homemade Spiced Hot Chocolate

Who needs store-bought pouches of powder when you can make yummy, rich hot chocolate on your stove top? I’m a big fan of knowing what I’m putting in my body, so even though I’ve been known to enjoy a little Swiss Miss from time to time, I’m in love with this homemade hot chocolate recipe. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Cinnamon Cake Mix Waffles with Warm Cinnamon Roll Icing

I think waffles got me through the the start of my freshman year of college. No joke. The dining hall had a self-serve waffle station that was open regardless of whether it was actually breakfast time or not. During that awkward first week of not knowing anyone, a group of girls and I who shared several classes […]
