Happy, happy Friday! How was your week? Our home was struck by sickness this week. Ugh! Adam was down for most of the week with a stomach bug and I have been spared so far. I think I should be in the clear and am ready to enjoy a healthy and fun weekend with my man. If Fridays and getting better aren’t a great reason to celebrate, then I don’t know what is. And the best way to do so is with a big old pan of brownies. I am sure you agree.

I basically made my childhood dreams come true when I concocted the brownies you see here. Loaded with chocolate covered caramels, mini marshmallows and caramel popcorn. Oh, and there’s chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate.

Hot Cocoa Donut Muffins

A Donut Muffin that tastes just like a cozy cup of Hot Cocoa. Yes, you need 1 or 10 in your life!

Happy Friday, friends! Now that we’ve reached double digits in the month of December, I am feeling the Christmas shopping pressure. The hubby and I have yet to purchase a few gifts together and yes, I still have to make up my mind what to get him as well. I have a few ideas, but life holds some sweet distractions for me. Who wants to step outside and join the hustle and bustle when one could curl up inside with tea and a Hot Cocoa Donut Muffin in hand while watching Elf?! That’s the constant dilemma I find myself in.

It’s a tough job being a food blogger, but someone’s got to do it. Also, someone has got to eat them… so I am blaming my Christmas shopping procrastination on these Donut Muffins. I think they can take it. Nothing could possibly take away from their amazingness.

You need to taste for yourself what is going on here. [Read more…]

Happy, happy Friday! Do you have any fun plans this weekend? Maybe getting ready for a Halloween party or finishing your kid’s costume?

I’m going to be honest, Halloween isn’t my holiday. I’ve never understood the fascination with creepy and scary things. I’m a total wimp and honestly cannot wait for it to be over. Which means our neighbors across the street will finally take down their bloody zombie ghost from the front door. Even though it’s been there a couple of weeks now, I am still taking a double take every time I look out our window. Enough already! November 1st can’t come soon enough.

Said date also means that Halloween candy will be on sale. Now that’s something I can get on board with. I might have to move my weekly shopping trip around a bit just so I can snag a bag or two. If you ask me, you can never have enough candy corn around the house. I know some people aren’t a huge fan, but when you combine candy corn with peanuts and chocolate, you have yourself a treat that’s hard to beat.

Unless you throw it all together and make yourself this Halloween Bark. Mind BLOWN! [Read more…]

Campfire Saltine Toffee and a Blendtec Giveaway

Saltine Toffee aka “Christmas Crack” meets its summertime counterpart. With the addition of an ooey gooey marshmallow layer, this version is a serious contender. Now you don’t have to wait all year to enjoy your favorite treat!

Have I told you lately how much I love blogging? I mean, one day I can post a salad and the next day a sweet treat that will knock your socks off.

I never know where this journey is taking me one minute or what outrageous concoction I can come up with next.

As promised, I didn’t waste a hot second to get back to the sweet stuff. Now this saltine toffee comes from an intense craving for the kind that you usually make around Christmas time. But since I refuse to think about anything that has to do with colder months, I knew I had to come up with a version that’s appropriate for the (hopefully) warmer days ahead.

If you adore the regular saltine toffee as much as I do, you have got to try this version. Dare I say that I prefer this one over the original? You betcha. [Read more…]
