Butterscotch Blondies

Mom used to make these in a sheet pan and cut the crust off before serving them. Grandpa would always sneak into the kitchen and eat the crusts. He always said they were the best part! I think he was also a little worried my mom would throw them away.

Peanut Butter Granola Bites

One of my alternatives to junk-food snacking this season is these Granola Bites. There is still enough sweetness in them to make them really fun and delicious, while packing a protein punch that keeps the cravings at bay. Plus? I love peanut butter. YUM.

Dark Chocolate Cheesecake Bars

Today the sun came out, I woke up in a good mood, and it was time to bake something fun… just for fun. I found some cream cheese in the fridge just begging to be baked with, and I figured my chocolate cake would taste amazing with a little cheesecake on top.

Key Lime Sugar Cookie Bars

Someday I’m going to come up with a fantastic Key Lime Pie recipe. In the meantime, I really want that sweet lime flavor in a cookie.

Peanut Butter Blondies

If anyone asks, that’s why they’re round. Because they look cool. Sleek. Stylish. It’s the next thing in blondies. I’m a trendsetter, y’all.

Rocky Road Bars

It was a brilliant idea, but an utter disaster. The cookies are still glued to my favorite baking sheet. Talk about embarrassing. I reworked the recipe a couple different ways until I found a combination that I was happy with.

Eggnog Bars

I personally prefer a little Shasta Black Cherry in my eggnog. Nothing transports me to the Christmas Eve’s of my childhood faster.

Chocolate Yogurt Granola Bars

Pin ItUnder normal circumstances, I try to limit the amount of baking chips I purchase.  But, let’s be honest, you can’t expect a girl to just never buy chocolate chips, can you? I found a clearance basket at my local grocery store that was full of Ghiradelli bittersweet chocolate chips.  I’m not sure whether they [Read On]

Biscoff Granola Bars guest post

Pin ItIt’s the middle of the month, and I am already over budget on the groceries.  I can’t help myself.  Sometimes I see something fabulous like mini-bell peppers or blood orange Chobani greek yogurt, or heaven help me, Biscoff spread, and I just have to buy it. Now school is starting, and I have to [Read On]
