        Monster Cookies are my new favorite Halloween treat.  I mean just how adorable are these little yummies?? SPRINKLES & MORE SPRINKLES I am all about a fun sprinkle for any and all occasion.  I have an entire section in my pantry dedicated to my sprinkle obsession.  My niece and nephew love them as well and want to decorate cookies almost every time they come over just so they can use them. For these cookies I went with a variety.  As seen above a traditional halloween blend of orange, green, black, purple and white and then a pink, green and white version as well for the purple cookies.  I…

  • Cheesecake Brownies

    I am all about anything decadent right now and these Cheesecake Brownies are decadence at its BEST!! It is all about the swirl… To make the swirl perfect you start with a brownie layer.  Next comes a layer of cheesecake and then you finish it with the rest of the brownie.  Then comes the swirl, you gotta love a good swirl.  I used a knife to swirl together the brownie and cheesecake batters to make this beautiful design. You could use a toothpick, skewer or even a fork… whatever you have on hand. Decadence at it’s BEST! The brownie layer is super fudgy and the cheesecake layer is super creamy…

  • Goody Bars (Gluten Free Option)

      Memorial Day Weekend is HERE and these Goody Bars would be a perfect sweet treat!! Goody Bar Time! If you know about Goody Bars then you know just how yummy they are.   First can we talk about the oatmeal crust/crumble?  It is buttery, just sweet enough and the perfect envelope to the chocolate center.  I did use Gluten Free Flour and they turned out amazing.  You can use all-purpose if you would like.  Secondly, the chocolate center.  Not only is it chocolate but it is also mixed with sweetened condensed milk (or nectar of the God’s), vanilla, salt and a little more butter.  There can never be too…

  • Browned Butter M&M Blondies

    Memorial Day  weekend is here and that means time for a yummy treat, these Browned Butter Blondies are perfect!   All about the browned butter… I love a good blondie but these blondies are next level.  Why?  You ask… it is all about the browned butter.   Browned butter really does make all the difference.  It adds a nutty bite to the bars and a richness that cannot be adequately described with words alone. Now I do know that the idea of browning butter can sounds a little intimidating but it really isn’t… you just have to pay attention to it.  All you do is let the butter melt, it…

  • Firecracker Brownies

    Memorial Day  is here and that means it is time for red, white and blue everything.  To really make this holiday something to remember make these Firecracker Brownies…they really are something amazing. It starts with a box I am a big fan of brownies and especially homemade brownies, but recently I was chatting with a friend and she was telling me about her favorite brownies.  I was quite surprised to find out they start with a box brownie mix.  She added a few extra ingredients to make them even better and they came AMAZING…so I had to give it a shot. I was truly surprised that with a little vanilla…

Next I used the frosting in a tube and just made the cutest little dollop on top and then topped with a robins egg… and voila we are DONE!!   Quick &…

  • my most favorite sugar cookie

    I have been very blessed to have some amazing grandparents.  All of them made huge impacts on my life but my MeeMaw was the one who had the biggest impact on my cooking.  I make a ton of her recipes but these cookies are my favorite. Worth the wait… The minute we would get to the farm (where she lived) I would go straight to the cookie jar.  The cookie jar would sit on a bakers rack at the entrance of the kitchen.  It was always loaded with tons of these cookies.  It would take us about 12 hours to get there from Texas and every single minute on the way there…
