Dollops of peanut butter filling placed in brownie batter and swirled together creating thick, fudgey, rich brownies you'll love! Just as easy as buying a boxed brownie mix, but tastes even better! Let's just say I've never made from scratch brownies before...ever. I know! That's so bad! lol I can remember my twin sister, Emily, [...]
Last week my sister, Chira, posted a picture of S'mores Cupcakes on her Facebook page. It was my nephew, Evan's, 10th birthday, and Chira made them to bring to Evan's classroom to celebrate. S'mores are one of my favorite desserts. I love the combo of graham crackers, melted chocolate and gooey marshmallow. They are such a staple dessert in the summer. These cupcakes are a nice alternative when you can't toast the marshmallow outside over a fire. For these cupcakes, you have a chocolate cupcake topped with fluffy marshmallow frosting and a sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs.
Bananas are a staple on our weekly grocery list. Lance and I can't get enough of them, but some weeks we have a few that go brown, and we'll toss them in the freezer to save for when we make our favorite Chocolate Chip Banana Bread. We've made this banana bread recipe a lot! It's SO good with the chocolate chips, and I'm a huge fan of walnuts - so I always add them in when I have them, but we've made the banana bread without walnuts as well. The best part is the bites of thinly sliced bananas you get throughout the bread. There's something about banana and chocolate together that I absolutely love.
Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and I usually make a special dessert. Whether it's cheesecake, chocolate covered strawberry's or sugar cookies, I love having a treat to look forward to while celebrating. This year, I thought dressing up sugar cookies would be really fun to make, especially since I saw these cute Valentine's [...]
I always look forward to traditions. Not just during the holidays but any time of year. I feel it's nice to have something to look forward to no matter how big or small the tradition is. My fiance's mom makes cinnamon rolls for the holidays, and I already can't wait to have one on Christmas [...]
If you choose to cook one thing, they have to be these amazing Rosemary Sea Salt Sweet Potato Rolls. I feel there's nothing that tastes better than fresh baked bread out of the oven. They are topped with a honey butter mixture and sprinkled with sea salt. The thought of making homemade bread is intimidating, [...]
Lately one of my most favorite things to make are cookies. I'm not sure if it's because I'm getting into the holiday spirit or I just love trying different cookie recipes out. So far this holiday season I've made my all time favorite, Peanut Butter Blossoms, but I wanted to try a recipe that I've [...]
