Today we’re mixing appetizer with dessert. Not sure why in the world it took me this long to figure out how to have dessert first and have it not be frowned upon. When you present these pretty crostini to your dinner guests, nobody will even think to question that they’re indulging in chocolate, lovely carbs and juicy fruit before the actual dinner has started. This appetizer is an excellent way to kick off any get together. The lovely presentation, with a bite that will please everyone, will set the mood for a fabulous time.

One Bowl White Chocolate Chip Brownies

Ultra Chocolaty Fudge Brownies studded with plenty of White Chocolate Chips. Mmmmm!

One Bowl White Chocolate Chip Brownies

There’s no better way to kick off the week than with brownies. Who is with me? Even better when prepared with minimal cleanup. One bowl, a lot of chocolate, and a few pantry staples later, you can sink your own teeth into these chewy squares of brownie deliciousness. And you totally should. I mean, it’s brownies… do you really need to be convinced? I didn’t think so.

Also, if you’re feeling lazy, but have a serious chocolate craving that needs to be satisfied, you will definitely want to give these a go. Absolutely amazing when it comes to the chocolate factor and just as wonderful in the time department. This brownie recipe is a serious contender for box brownie mix. It’s quick, convenient and just as (if not more) scrumptious. You will say good bye to the boxed kind, for sure. [Read more…]

S’mores Popcorn Mix

S’mores Popcorn Mix – the name says it all. Without a doubt, summer’s most addicting snack!

S'mores Popcorn Mix

Welcome to Friday! Do you have any fun plans this weekend? I recently decided to paint ALL the trim around our new house. Living in a mostly white house has been my dream for what seems like forever now. While I absolutely love the way things are coming along, I didn’t think it would take as long as it is. I am not complaining though – the more progress I make, the more I fall head over heels for the way our house now feels and looks. I might even start sharing our tiny house makeover. Are you guys interested?

S'mores Popcorn Mix

Since it’s taking me a while to repaint, I don’t like to waist time by taking any kind of a break, even when it comes to food. I know! So quick snacks and on the go meals are my jam. Which is exactly where this popcorn mix comes in. I’ve been snacking on regular popcorn while painting, but I finally grew tired of it and knew I needed to step things up. Inspired by summer and one of the best flavors of life, s’mores, I knew just what to do. [Read more…]

Glazed Lemon Pudding Cake

Lemon Pudding Cake with a yummy Glaze. If you love moist cakes, this one’s definitely for you!

Glazed Lemon Pudding Cake

Lemons have stolen my heart and I don’t care who knows it. I always have an abundance of lemons in my kitchen. I regularly drink a glass of water with half of a freshly squeezed lemon first thing in the morning. So I constantly stock up on lemons and sometimes happen to buy just a couple too many. Which I don’t mind at all ;). Because it results in delicious cakes like the one you see here.

Glazed Lemon Pudding Cake

I actually spotted the recipe for this cake a little while ago and have been waiting for just the right moment to whip it up. When the lemons started to accumulate, I took it as a sign and finally gave it a go.

You might know by now that I’m all about moist cakes. I can’t stand dry and flavorless cakes, which are two things this one does not have. The addition of pudding is basically the best thing ever. Every time I sneak another slice, I am dying just a little bit inside. I almost can’t handle the goodness. [Read more…]

Peach Iced Tea

Homemade Peach Iced Tea. As easy as 1, 2, 3.

Peach Iced Tea

If you don’t want to say goodbye to the long holiday weekend, you’re not alone. I’m protesting the start of another work week with more Peach Iced Tea. Since that’s all I’ve been sipping on over the last 3 days, I figured it’s the easiest and tastiest way to keep the 4th of July vibes going.

Iced tea is my drink of choice in the summertime. I am a tea lover all year round and always look forward to the warmer months when this iced beverage tastes the best!

Peach Iced Tea

Out of all the months of the year, July is definitely my favorite. Too many reasons why, but the fact that peaches are in season RIGHT NOW is definitely one of them. Nothing beats a perfectly ripe, juicy and sweet peach.

And in order to incorporate even more peaches into my life, I decided to add a peachy twist to my much loved sweet tea recipe. [Read more…]
