Chocolate Cheesecake Peanut Butter Granola Parfait

I have a love/hate relationship with granola. I love it because it tastes so darn good…and I also hate it for the same reason. Because something that tastes that good? Makes me want to eat it allllll. Then, if I put granola in something like, say, a Chocolate Cheesecake Peanut Butter Granola Parfait? Well,...

Valentine Oreo Bark

Because I can eat Oreo Bark all year long, I decided to make a Valentine version. Doesn’t that make you happy?? As Jordan gets older it’s getting harder to shield her from inappropriate things on TV and radio. Actually, it’s not getting harder so much as she’s getting smarter and she listens to and...

Strawberry Sweet Rolls with Dark Chocolate Drizzle

Strawberry Sweet Rolls with Dark Chocolate Drizzle

Tender whole wheat rolls filled with spirals of sweet berries & topped with a decadent drizzle. They’re the healthier breakfast version of chocolate-dipped strawberries!     Every Valentine’s Day throughout my childhood, my mom would wake up a little bit earlier than normal and set out all kinds of sweet treats for my brother...

Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars

I know, another red velvet recipe. But I couldn’t help myself…these were too good not to share STAT. Okay food bloggers, back me up on this one: You bake a few recipes on the same day. You plan out your editorial calendar for the month and the recipes you made are scheduled out a...

Red Velvet Blondies

Red Velvet Blondies

Would you call them red velvet blondies or red velvet brownies? I’m calling them blondies because (1) they’re not brownies, these are brownies and (2) I used my blondie base. It’s settled: they’re red velvet blondies. Last week Jordan was home sick for a few days. This made me appreciate several things: 1. Zicam....

Chocolate Red Hot Cookies

Decadent brownie-like cookies studded with pieces of cinnamon candy. They’re like a cross between chili-spiced chocolate & brownies—and SO addictive!     Last year, my guy basically forgot about Valentine’s Day. In his defense, he volunteered every Friday night that year, regardless of the month or day, so… It was just his luck that...

Easy Double Fudge Brownies with the most amazing frosting ever.

These easy double fudge brownies were my undoing. I could not resist them at all! Want to know what else undid me last week? Having to spend $200 on new curtains for my living room. We got new neighbors in November. I don’t know where they moved from, but I’m betting it was somewhere...

Champagne Punch Bellini

Champagne Punch Bellini

You need a pretty drink for Christmas or New Years Eve. A Champagne Punch Bellini can be that drink. I think prettier drinks just taste better…or maybe that’s just me. I’ve probably told this story before, but it’s my blog and I’ve been writing my life stories for 4 years now. One, I can’t remember all...
