Fruity Marshmallow Popcorn

I spotted lemon flavored marshmallows at the grocery store around Easter, and I’ve had them rolling around in my head ever since then. I finally came up with a great idea (namely, this popcorn) and when I went back to the store to get them, they were conspicuously missing. Dang those seasonal ingredients!

Peppermint Popcorn Bark

Since I’m addicted to the Food Bloggers Network, and I’m addicted to popcorn, this recipe was a natural leap. And, at the risk of tooting my own horn even more than usual, let me tell you that this might be my most brilliant concoction ever. Seriously.

Easy Cheesecake {Guest Post}

I learned a lesson from this cheesecake. If I keep a few items on hand, I can always have a quick and easy dessert, no matter how unprepared I feel. Having just a little foresight can save you a ton of worry and stress.

Grapefruit Soda

Truth be told, this particular beverage isn’t adult in the afternoon-cocktail-no-kids-allowed sense, but more in the kids-prefer-grape-soda-to-grapefruit-soda sense.


Make some buckeyes for the big game! The buckeye recipe calls for chocolate, peanut butter, and no baking.

Brown Butter Cream Cheese Dip

This cream cheese dip with browned butter has a rich, caramel flavor. It makes a great fruit dip, also great on graham crackers. You’re going to want to hide the mixing bowl from your kids.

Krispie Treat Pops

Krispie treats are just classic, aren’t they? I mean, everyone likes a plain old rice krispie treat. Everyone but me, that is. I really have to dress them up to make them interesting.

Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites

On the bright side, the New Years Eve snacks will be infinitesimally better than they used to be. Because old me just opened a bag of chips, but new me will take time to make these pretzel bites.

Pumpkin Spice Krispie Treats

I found this little gem. Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows. I had to buy them. I had to have them. I had to eat a few plain and then bake with the rest.

Pomegranate Ice Cream Topping

I told my Dad to get himself some ice cream at the grocery store, and I would contribute some ice cream topping. He was thrilled to get a little jar of this yummy Pomegranate Syrup. I was a little sad to let it out of my sight.

Pumpkin No Bake Cookies

While I’m waiting to get my old oven out and my new oven in, I’m making stovetop cookies. Easy, fast, delicious, no-bake, stovetop cookies. With pumpkin for fall.

Chocolate No-Bake Mini Cheesecakes

To help my quest to feel young again, I made a dessert that is easy and chocolatey and kid-sized. It feels like a brilliant idea that you and your best friend had one late night when bored.

Biscoff Granola Bars guest post

 Share on TumblrIt’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 [Read On]

Paradise Punch Pie

 Share on TumblrIf you want to make an omelet, you have to break some eggs.  Or, as Robb says, if you’re not messing up once in a while, you’re not really trying.  I prefer this one:  There are obstacles to overcome on the pathway to genius. I just made that one up. The thing is, [Read On]
