Coconut Macaroon Tartlets

by Nina on March 26, 2014

Spring is finally here! After what felt like an incredibly long winter, the season has finally changed, and I’m ready to embrace new spring flavors and treats. Or at least, I hope so. While it’s technically spring on paper, the weather seems like it hasn’t gotten the memo. It’s still a little too windy and […]

Thanksgiving is right around the corner! I am in charge of bringing the desserts to my family Thanksgiving dinner so I need a lot of yummy ideas! I found this Oreo Ice Cream Cake recipe from the M&T Spotlight page and instantly thought it would be a huge crowd pleaser! You can find the recipe by Aimee […]

Who doesn’t like a big bowl of chocolate peanut butter Muddy Buddies? My husband and I can eat a whole batch in one sitting! I spotted this recipe over on the M&T Spotlight page which gives a fall twist on the classic Muddy Buddies recipe. Rachel from Food Fanatic uses pumpkin pie spice and Biscoff spread to give […]

Whether sandwiched between chocolate and graham crackers or eaten plain, toasted marshmallows have become a part of the culture of summer. Gathered around a campfire, a few sticks and a bag of marshmallows can complete a enjoyable evening between friends and family. After years of moderating debates between friends who like their marshmallows flaming and […]

Sometimes a tasty treat is just what you need at the end (or in the middle) of a long day, you feel me? I spotted these Nutella Cookie Bars from Food Fanatic at the Make and Takes Spotlight and have been waiting for an excuse to whip up a batch, maybe I don’t need one! […]

Easy Eggnog Ice Cream Floats

by Lindsey on December 20, 2012

A few years ago I was spending time with my husband’s uncle and aunt.  My husband’s uncle loves eggnog, as do I.  He asked me if I’d ever had it mixed with soda.  (I hadn’t, but I was intrigued.)  He likes to mix his with lemon-lime soda or cola.  Both are great.  And it got […]

This month is bound to blow by and my thoughts are 100% occupied by Thanksgiving. We are planning out our Thanksgiving menu, and the aftermath. I know that most people don’t think about the leftovers, but I do. For one thing, I need to have posts ready to go to help others use up their […]

Tis the season of pies! Are you as excited about Thanksgiving dessert as me? I think pie is my favorite part of the meal. And pumpkin to boot. I could eat about 7 of these mini pumpkin pies myself. Here are a few versions of the beloved pumpkin pie: Mini Pumpkin Pies in a Muffin […]

Gooey Fluffer Nutter Bars

by Carrian on October 3, 2012

When I was nursing my second child we discovered (due to torturous days and nights with a screaming, sobbing baby that literally never slept) that she had a lot of intolerances. I slowly began taking things out of my diet to see what it was making her sick. By the time she was 9 months old, and finally […]

I scored a fantastic deal on some dried blueberries a few months ago.  I bought a bunch to eat on cereal and salads. But what I really wanted to make with them was cookies.  There’s a cake we like that combines blueberries, lemon and white chocolate together in a magical way. These are the cookie […]

Two of my neighbors have gorgeous apricot trees that have been completely overloaded with these gorgeous, blushing fruits. I like to use apricots raw in smoothies and salads. But it’s when apricots are cooked that their flavor is at its best and more glorious. Roasting the apricots deepens that luscious flavor. I love apricots with […]

My husband loves Monkey Bread Muffins. He always begs me to make them. I decided it was time to give them a little twist. I jazzed them up by making Oreo Monkey Bread Muffins. Instead of the traditional cinnamon and sugar muffins, I used crushed up Oreos and white chocolate chips. I also drizzled the […]

It’s officially the first day of summer! Wahoo!! Many kids are already out of school, but my littles are finally done on Friday. FRIDAY! I’m both excited and scared. What are we going to do? Do you plan your summer? I need to plan my summer. So to help, here’s a few posts I’ve written over […]

I love chocolate peanut butter no-bake cookies, but my husband is allergic to peanut butter so I usually end up eating the entire batch all by myself. Probably not the best idea, especially since swimsuit season is right around the corner. So instead of the making the traditional no-bake cookies, I replaced the peanut butter […]

Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away.  Since we’ve had kids, my husband and I haven’t taken Valentine’s Day too seriously. We stay home and put the kids to bed and try to have a romantic dinner together–usually between requests for one last drink of water and one more story. Dessert is something I […]
