Crusty Artisan Bread Bowls

CrustyArtisanBreadBowls1

Is there anything better than the smell of freshly baked bread in your house? Whenever I prepare bread of any form, I can count on my husband’s voice within minutes after putting it in the oven inquiring of what I’m making and when it’s going to be done. Without fail. It’s one of the things I look forward to. Having somebody by my side that can get as excited about food as I am is a huge blessing to me. He wouldn’t really call himself a foodie and most days can’t figure out why in the world I’m so excited about making, eating, and looking at food.

All. Day. Long.

With that being said, I too am a lover of all things bread. And these bread bowls? To die for. So, so, good. [Read more…]

Peanut Butter Cups

Since Halloween is less than 24 hours away, I thought I’d share my favorite candy with you. Peanut butter and chocolate is pretty hard to beat. Whoever invented that fabulous combination deserves some kind of a price. Seriously. While I happen to have other favorites, Peanut Butter Cups are my first choice almost every time followed by Snickers. With the success of copying the famous Reese’s Cups, I am getting giddy just thinking about the endless possibilities of candy-making in the comfort of my own home. Did I mention that you’ll only need 2 ingredients to produce your own PB Cups? Yes, it’s true – easy, peasy, out-of this-world-lip-smacking Chocolate Cups filled with rich and creamy peanut butter are about to boggle your mind. Here we go!

Homemade Nutella

Nutella

A simple recipe is here to sweeten Monday mornings. Do you love Nutella? It goes without saying that I do. Eating chocolate for breakfast? I mean, it really doesn’t get any better than that, does it? The addition of hazelnuts gives the spread a wonderfully nutty flavor; adding a whole new dimension to the silky, smooth taste. If you have never tried it, please go ahead and give it a go. For those of you that know all about the lusciousness in a jar – rejoice. This homemade version is just as tasty as the store-bought kind and is ready to enjoy in no time. [Read more…]

Halloween Popcorn Mix

With Halloween less than a week away it was definitely time to make Halloween Popcorn Mix. I couldn’t think of a better recipe for the spooky holiday. It is so easy and quick to prepare. A recipe that will tickle your imagination. Once the base is prepared, you will be able to customize your snack mix according to your liking or depending on what types of candy your kids will have left over the next day. I am not a huge fan of Halloween. Scary movies, ghoulish-looking treats, and clever costumes aren’t really my thing. While I adore the fall season and all it has to offer, All Hallows’ Eve is probably the only thing that doesn’t thrill me – except for the candy sales the day after everything has been said and done. Now that is something I can get excited about! That and the possibilities the sales bring for this snack mix. I am confident you will love this Popcorn Mix as much as I do.

Ultimate Butterscotch Chocolate Pretzel Crunch Cookies

ButterscotchPretzelCookies

Can we talk about favorite things for a second? One of my absolute most sought after snacks the last couple of weeks have been Pretzel Crisps. I am hooked and can’t get enough! It all started one lovely fall morning whilst strolling through Costco. I usually try to avoid little stops at their various stands with free samples to try. I know better… so I thought. With lunch just around the corner and knowing that I would be home within the next 15 minutes to grab something wholesome, I had just about sidestepped every possible temptation. Thinking I was in the clear I averted my eyes from my targeted checkout lane (which was about 20 feet away from me), when I perceived and spotted Pretzel Crisps. Thanking the lovely gentleman who handed me the tiny cup and taking my first bite, I immediately knew I had made a mistake. I ended up leaving the store without purchasing a bag of my new discovery, but couldn’t stop thinking about them. Needless to say, I returned a week later and purchased a bag of Dark Chocolate Crunch Pretzel Crisps. Don’t you just love the name? Waiting an entire week to make my return, I couldn’t help but dream of recipes that would feature the “reinvented pretzel”. Get ready for an overload of mouthwatering pictures showcasing Ultimate Butterscotch & Chocolate Pretzel Crunch Cookies! [Read more…]
