Cream Cheese Ideas for the Holidays

Cream cheese. Creamy. Sweet. Delicious. Doesn’t make you fat at all. I kid, I kid. Every single bite is worth it. You know it, I know it. There’s nothing better than cream cheese. Now…I’m a cream cheese snob. If it’s not Philadelphia Cream Cheese, I don’t want it. Have you bought the store brand versions? […]

Candy Corn Treats

Candy Corn. You have three options: Love it. Hate it. Eat it either way until you are stupid sick because there’s always a bowl of it out this time of year. Now, while you may not be a huge fan of this super sweet treat, most people will agree that it’s a fun looking fall […]

Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Whoopie Pies

I blinked, and August became October.  Literally, I woke up in Florida one morning in mid-August, then blinked, and Seven started back to school, blinked again and landed in Texas for Mixed Conference, and now, October is almost gone.  Blink, blink, blink. What bloggers were aching for a few weeks ago – pumpkin – was […]

It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I am helping KitchenAid raise money […]

Stuffed Toffee Snickerdoodle Cookies

It’s Back to School you all. Back to SCHOOL. They are IN SCHOOL. The summer went by in a blink…I swear I think I was only home for maybe 2 full weeks?  It was a whirlwind, probably a whirlwind for you, too.  Kids underfoot, or off to camp, or off on vacation, or off to […]

Giant Triple Chocolate Chunk and Citrus Cookies

What a mouthful, right? Truly, and in every sense of the word.  A MOUTHFUL. You may have noticed on Twitter and Facebook that I have been any and everywhere this summer.  In reality, I’ve been home maybe 10 full days since the start of the summer.  I’m not complaining, mind you – I really enjoy […]

Chocolate Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

That kind of sounds like a stutter, doesn’t it? Chocolate Mint Chocolate Ice Cream. Why the double Chocolate? Well, that’s because I have Chocolate Mint. Did you know there is such a thing? There is! It’s mint, it has a brownish tinge to the edges, and it smells and tastes vaguely of cocoa. Strangest thing, […]

Frozen Chocolate Coffee Mousse

Sometimes you just want to be a little fancy. I get that. I want to be fancy sometimes too. Instead of cupcakes, I’ll bake mini-cakes in fluted liners (still a cupcake, but so stylish); Instead of a big pie, I’ll make mini tarts and gussy them up. And instead of mousse in a bowl, I’ll […]
