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.

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…]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls

Healthy Energy Balls that taste anything but. Every Chocolate and Peanut Butter lover should save this recipe.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls

Healthy snacks are pretty much an essential in our home. Adam and I have always eaten smaller meals throughout the day with a couple of snacks here and there. Not only do I like to make my own snacks, but I’ve really been concentrating on making healthy yet satisfying ones over the last couple of months. We’re still getting settled into our new home and have just a few projects (that require quite a bit of muscle work) left. So I decided to stock up our “good for you” options that’ll provide us with plenty of energy.

And when I stumbled upon this new to me recipe, I knew instantly that I had to share it with all of you. This one’s simply too good not to.

Ya’ll know by now that I love a great bite, truffle, ball or whatever you want to call ’em. I don’t discriminate between healthy and indulgent, but when both of them come together, I can’t resist. And I bet you can’t either once you give them a go! [Read more…]

Chocolate Covered Coconut Caramel Bites

It’s Friday! I’ve been looking forward to this weekend for quite some time. Easter is one of my very favorite holidays. I certainly love any occasion that allows me to prepare some special treats and go all out in the food department. And don’t even get me started on the candy. I am smitten by those cute Lindt chocolate bunnies every year – the perfect treat for any Easter basket, if you ask me :).

But this weekend means so much more. I am beyond humbled that I get to celebrate and rejoice in the life God has given me through his Son, Jesus Christ. I already cannot wait to wake up Sunday morning, go to church and proclaim once again that Christ is risen! Now and forever. I’m getting goose bumps just thinking about it.

It is my prayer, that you, my lovely readers, know Christ and receive the gift that he so generously offers to all of us. I’ve never mentioned this before, but I often pray for everyone that visits Deliciously Yum to develop an eternal relationship with the one and only Savior. So much sweeter, more satisfying and awesome than anything I could ever whip up in my kitchen….

Although, the sweet treats that are waiting for you today are beyond mouthwatering and absolutely incredible! [Read more…]

Hello Friday! The weekend is finally here and I’m in the mood for something slightly salty, a lot of sweet, and a tad bit of crunch. How about you? Also, lazy Friday nights call for easy peasy snacks… at least in my books. The last thing I want to do after the work week is spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Don’t get me wrong, I love our little kitchen, but after a long day I’d much prefer our couch, ha.

That’s right. The hubby and I are the kind of crazy people that love to stay in, watch a movie aka Netflix, and enjoy some mouthwatering food. Yup, we’re old young people. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. Homemade food, a comfy spot and my handsome man – can you blame me?

Even better when you have Turtle Bites nearby ;). [Read more…]

Butterfinger Bites made in the comfort of your own home with only 3 ingredients. Happy Halloween indeed!

Hey Everyone! Yep, Halloween is finally here. Today’s high is a balmy 37 degrees. Just like that we’re saying hi to winter. We can’t really complain though. This fall has been absolutely gorgeous and the weather was beyond perfect. Ever year I am hopeful that the kids will be able to go trick or treating without having to dress warm underneath their adorable costumes, but so far no such luck. Oh well, the extra “stuffing” definitely adds to the cuteness factor.

And just in case you’re anything like me (aka childless) and aren’t able to dig into your munchkin’s candy stash, I have an amazing recipe for you today. Because in my mind Halloween is all about the sweet stuff.

Also, if you find yourself left with ridiculous amounts of candy corn or if you do have kids, but they didn’t return with any butterfinger bars, then listen up.

This is where candy lovers unite! [Read more…]
