No-Bake Sweet and Salty Cereal Bars

These bars make me feel like I’m a kid again. I get excited just at the sight of them. And I figured now was the best time to feature another no-bake treat. Isn’t that all we want when the temperatures won’t give us a break, but we’re still looking for a homemade treat? I know it’s all my heart desires ;).

This time around, I knew that I wanted to combine sweet and salty ingredients. If you’ve been reading my blog for a little while, you are well aware that I love that combo oh so much. I mean, how many salted caramel recipes have I featured in the past? Too many to list and there’s no end in sight. But this time around, I decided to go with pretzels, pecans, and a fun amount of m&m’s. And the outcome was more than fab. [Read more…]

Turtle Bites

One of the easiest and tastiest sweet treats you can make in the comfort of your own home. The perfect crowd pleaser as well!

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…]

Monster Cookie Granola

This Homemade Granola has it all. Whether you love granola or are new to the whole idea, you won’t be able to stop eating bowl after bowl.

Let’s jump right in, shall we? I have caught the granola-making bug. If you’d asked me a couple of weeks ago, I wouldn’t have considered myself a huge granola fan. I never quite understood the hype and wasn’t even remotely interested. I think the fact that breakfasts used to be more of an afterthought (if even that) to me, might the biggest reason why I just didn’t get granola.

But in my attempts to give the most important meal of the day more attention, I decided to jazz up my Greek yogurt breakfasts with some delicious whole grains. So off I went and purchased a bag of honey almond granola. It didn’t take me very long to consume every last crumb…

And refusing to purchase yet another bag, I decided to make my own. You know, being a food blogger and all. Plus, wanting to be in control of my ingredients and creating granola just the way I like it, gave me more than enough motivation.

Best. Decision. Ever! [Read more…]

Sticky Buns

Let’s go all in with Sticky Buns. Featuring the works of everything scrumptious – Caramel, Pecans, and Cinnamon Butter. Mmmm!

Before we talk about my new found love for these incredible Sticky Buns, we need to chat about something completely unrelated. Youtube channels. I’ve recently became aware of the fact that there are youtubers that treat their channels much like a blogger treats their blog, if that makes any sense. I was always aware that people post fun and useful stuff, but I had no idea of the community that existed. Alright, I won’t bore you any longer since you’re probably rolling your eyes at me wondering if I’m actually living under a rock or something.

Every night before my head hits the pillow for good, I am checking my favorite channels while always being on the lookout for new ones.

At this point, makeup channels are in for the win. I am obsessed with makeup (always have been) and now I’ve found channel after channel telling my what I’ve been missing out on and that doing your eye brows is super important. It does make a huge difference, btw.

I can’t stop staring at my iPhone screen. If you know of a channel I need to follow (beauty-related or not), please let me know. I am dying to know who you guys follow and who needs to sleep anyway? [Read more…]

Homemade English Toffee

Homemade English Toffee by Deliciously Yum!

Hi. Here’s another episode of candy Kathi loves. A couple months ago, I made Caramel Nougat Chocolate Bars aka Snickers. And there is no way I would let this year come to an end without making another one of my absolute faves. Heath bars or anything else containing toffee is another thing I could never get enough of. It’s the crunchy, buttery caramelized base layer topped with chocolate. The addition of pecans and almonds adds even more crunch and a nutty flavor that goes so well with toffee.

It is beautiful to look at and tastes even more amazing. Need a last minute Christmas gift? Well, you can stop searching and start making this quick and easy Homemade English Toffee. No candy thermometer required!

Seriously. Who wouldn’t want a goodie bag filled with this sweet treat? Homemade gifts are always the best, especially when they’re either useful or yummy! Yep, I wouldn’t mind sitting under our tree munching on this toffee and singing Christmas carols fa-la-la-la-la… count yourself blessed that you weren’t able to listen to that. My singing skills are definitely not meant to be shared. Ha! [Read more…]
