Spooky Halloween Pops

Spooky Halloween Pops

My daughter and I had a great time making these pops together! They seem like such an old school treat. I remember my mom making candy pops for my preschool class and it is something I’ve wanted to do for my daughter’s school. She had […]

Peanut Butter Hug Cookies

We are so lucky that friends whom I have known since birth (our parents actually met in birthing classes) recently relocated nearby. Yesterday I hosted a little gathering of our families chock full of laughs, lots of reminiscing, and (of course) food. I wasn’t sure what I wanted […]

Fancy Rice Krispie Treats

I wanted to make a Mother’s Day dessert that would really satisfy that unrefined sweet tooth that I sometimes find yelling for attention. (I know you all have one too…Yodels, anyone? How about a stack of IHOP pancakes with a whipped cream smiley face and blueberry syrup? No? Would you […]

Heath Bar Chocolate Cake

Wow–the days and weeks have gotten away from me! I came down with a nasty cold after Thanksgiving and I am not, what you might call, a quick “rebounder.”  I take some time to bounce back!  I am working on it, though.  With the help […]

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Did you know Reese’s now makes dark chocolate peanut butter cups?  I know! So exciting!!! When I first spotted the bags of orange and black foiled cups in my grocery store, I assumed it was just a Halloween gimmick (which actually would have been okay with […]

Carnival Cupcakes Galore

As you know, I baked clown cakes for my nephew’s carnival-themed first birthday party.  Because I have never baked for such a large crowd, I worried that the cake would not be enough so I decided to also make some cupcakes.  Compared to the cakes these cupcakes were easy breezy!  I baked […]

Peanut Butter Candy Bar Brownies

As far as desserts go, I enjoy making cakes and cupcakes most.  However, not all situations are cake and cupcake friendly.  When I need a sweet treat that must travel well I turn to bars.  Bars are usually pretty easy to make and they are very easy to  transport.  So […]

Mini Pina Colada Easter Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Spring is in the air here in Boston (and Easter is less than a weak away!) so I wanted to make some festive cupcakes.  I  still love my mini cupcake pan so I decided to make a mini version of these Pina Colada cupcakes.  I was […]

Ice Cream Burgers aka “The Chipwich”

  Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!  What better way to ring in the New Year than with cookies, ice cream, and candy—all in one bite!!!!  If you are looking for something fun to do with your kids during the last few days of school vacation, you may want […]
