Oreo Donuts

These are the ULTIMATE Oreo Donuts. Studded with the actual cookies, dipped in a white chocolate glaze and just as delicious as their crunchy counterpart. But be careful, you won’t be able to stop at just one.

Oreo Donuts

Oreos have been having a real moment in our house. Ever since buying a package of the new thin oreos in New York last week, we cannot stop eating them. It used to be that Peanut Butter Oreos were my absolute favorite. Nobody else ever seemed to care for them, which I was more than happy about. I then fell head over heels for golden oreos and certainly couldn’t get enough of the peanut butter cup ones either. But the current obsession is all about the original kind. And they’re taking over the best thing in the entire world today – DONUTS. Yes, caps are required.

Oreo Donuts

Get ready for incredibly chocolaty and moist donuts with an insane white chocolate frosting. Not only are the iconic cookies crushed and sprinkled on top of the donuts, but the donuts themselves hold pieces of cookies as well. So when I say Oreo Donuts I am not joking. These are the real deal. [Read more…]

On Life Lately

I took an unplanned break. And I missed blogging way too much.

As the title of this posts indicates, I thought I’d fill you in on what we’ve been up to lately before resuming my regular posting schedule (M,W,F) starting this Friday. If you don’t enjoy picture-heavy posts not involving food, stay tuned and come back soon. I have something so incredibly yummy coming up, you don’t want to miss it!

It all started here.

In the beginning of August, Adam and I went on the longest road trip either of us had ever been on. We decided to pack up our car and head all the way to Key West, FL. This was our first official vacation as a married couple after being married for well over 7 years. I know! To say that we were out-of-our-minds excited would be the understatement of the year. After spending just over 27 hours in the car, we arrived to the view you see above.

Coconut Oil Banana Muffins

Coconut Oil, Sweetened Coconut Flakes, and Bananas make for an amazing breakfast treat. Mmmmm!

Coconut Oil Banana Muffins

Raise your hand if banana bread is as much of a kryptonite food for you as it is for me. Banana bread and I go way back, which is exactly why The Best Banana Bread Recipe was posted in the very early days of this blog. It was one of those recipes that I couldn’t wait to post for all of you to see. Because it’s that good. It yields two medium-sized loaves that always disappear before I can even utter the words: “I just baked banana bread”.

Coconut Oil Banana Muffins

So when a couple of overripe bananas couldn’t be ignored much longer the other day, I didn’t have a choice but to pull out the old banana bread recipe. And somewhere along the lines I started to play with coconut oil, coconut flakes and the idea of making muffins instead.

These muffins are just another reason why I love baking and getting creative in the kitchen. [Read more…]

Carrot Cake Pops

Carrot Cake, Cream Cheese and White Chocolate create a delicious bite that you won’t be able to stop popping into your mouth!

Carrot Cake Pops

Here’s something I never thought I’d say. I am craving fall flavors while still trying to soak in every last day we have left of summer. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t actually want fall to arrive just yet. The change in temperature, shorter days, and all that jazz can stay away forever (as far as I’m concerned).

I just want to have permission to break out the pumpkin, warm spices and drink mulled apple cider. But I am trying to hold off. I’m sure I’ll be changing my tune next week though. When all I want to do is to hold on to summer’s goodness and abundance with both of my hands. For as long as I possibly can.

Carrot Cake Pops

Still wanted to break out the cinnamon and a couple of other spices. Which is where carrot cake comes into play. I don’t think there’s a rule as to when one can whip up a wonderful carrot cake. It’s a cake I am happy to enjoy all year around and it is my way of getting some of those fall cravings taken care of.

Carrot cake aroma must be one of the most warming, welcoming, and heartwarming smells around. And it only gets better once formed into tiny bites. YUM! [Read more…]

Trashed Up Pretzel Donuts

Homemade Pretzel Donuts dipped in a rich Chocolate Glaze and finished with pretzels, sprinkles, and anything else I could find.

Trashed Up Pretzel Donuts

Trashed-up desserts are a thing and always have been. It’s what happens when you make something utterly delicious but then can’t stop adding a whole bunch of other yummy ingredients to set it over the top. And it totally works. It’s a sweet treat you feel somewhat guilty indulging in, but you can’t and don’t really want to stop.

And to be totally honest, these are the kind of recipes that I love sharing with you the most. I am ridiculously giddy and excited about this one.

Trashed Up Pretzel Donuts

First of all, any day on which I get to talk about donuts can’t turn out to be anything but fabulous. Secondly, I combined my favorite treat of all time, donuts, with a savory favorite, pretzels, and am now able to enjoy both of them at the same time. I know! Even though it took me quite a few years to think of this combo, I am so, so overjoyed that I finally did.

Pretzel Donuts forevermore! [Read more…]
