April 2015 Wrap-Up

april-wrap-up-1April was a blur. Seriously. Some exciting changes in my personal life have forced my blog into the second-string position.

Don’t mind my sports metaphors, I just came home from a water polo game and I’m feeling more like a sports fan than usual.  Of course, I normally don’t follow sports at all, so it’s really not hard for me to feel more sporty than usual.

Making blogging my second thing instead of my first thing means I’m behind on my Facebook posts and my pinning and I spend less time staring at my own work than usual.  That last one is probably a good thing, though.  It didn’t stop me from having a favorite recipe though, and this month my favorite was the Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwich Cookies, by far.  Hands down. No contest.

Although, I’ll admit that I wish I had been present for the creation of that 7-Layer Greek Dip.  Living 2 states away from my sister makes the food sharing basically impossible.

Did you miss anything this month?  Catch up on what you missed here:


This Easy Pineapple Cheesecake was just that… EASY. You can throw it together in just a few minutes, there’s no baking required, and you have a great weeknight dessert.


As I mentioned above, these Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwich Cookies are all that and a bag of chips.  It’s April’s Cookie of the Month, so included in this post was a bunch more peanut butter cookie recipes.


My sister, Em, contributed this amazing 7-Layer Greek Dip this month. I’m so in love with those Greek flavors… feta cheese and cucumber sauce and hummus and olives! It’s a dip that’s sure to please.


For these Easy Chocolate Cupcakes, I spruced up a cake mix with my favorite ingredient… buttermilk! They’re semi-homemade, don’t require any fancy frosting, and they taste awesome.


I returned to my roots this month with these classic No-Bake Cookies.  Robb calls them Cocoa Mounds. You could also call them Oatmeal Stovetop Cookies. Whatever you call them, you’ll be glad to have this super fast and easy kid-friendly recipe in your back pocket!


I’ve been wanting to make these Onion Dill Potato Chips for a long time now.  I’ve had the idea in my head for months. I absolutely LOVE dill, and I think it tastes great with onion. I wish I could find this flavor at the grocery store.


Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies is the sort of recipe you’d think I would have tackled by now. I mean brownies plus cookie dough? What’s not to love? I made the dough egg-free, too, so you wouldn’t have a single thing to worry about.


And last, but certainly not least, these Caramel Marshmallow Cookies were my nephew’s idea, and I’d like to personally thank him for it. It’s an awesome flavor combination, and gave me an excuse to revisit the amazing Brown Sugar Cookies.

Coming in May:

Chocolate Chips.  I think we should all prepare for the greatest day of the entire year… National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day on May 15!  I’m preparing. And I’ll be bringing you fun chocolate chip cookie themed treats here on the blog, and on my Facebook page, AND I even have a Pinterest board dedicated to chocolate chips. Let’s connect in one of all of these places.

We’ll also be getting ready for summer with some fun kid-friendly treats for cooling off.

I’d love to hear from you!  What was your favorite treat this month? What are you hoping to see in May?
