Candy Bar Cupcakes

My fun weekend plans: This past Saturday morning, I woke up, packed as much as I could into my little blue car, and drove to my cousin’s house… 22 hours away. I knew I’d be without my baking supplies but wanted to publish at least one Halloween-themed recipe before the holiday this year. Therefore, last […]

Caramel Yogurt Dip

Everyone wants what they can’t have. That guy who liked me for two years in high school? I took his phone calls, notes, and attention for granted, only becoming interested in him after he finally gave up and asked out another girl. Likewise, I never gave caramel a second thought until 7th grade when the […]

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Want a pumpkin cinnamon roll? Or maybe an entire pan of pumpkin cinnamon rolls? Normally cinnamon rolls are so good on their own that there’s not really much you can do to make them even better… But stuffing the pastries with pumpkin pie somehow manages to do just that! Add a sticky, sugary glaze and […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

If you told me 10 years ago that someday I’d love to babysit, I most likely would’ve rolled my eyes and thought you were crazy. But spend enough time with kids and you really do begin to notice their childhood sense of innocence and wonder about the world wearing off on you. I spent Thursday […]

Yet suddenly it changed again. Albeit a colossal cliché, the idea that when one door closes another one opens has proven true for me twice now in three […]

Chocolate Chip Cherry Granola Bars

I secretly love awkward situations. Maybe not right while they’re happening… But when you look back, the awkward moments are the ones that always make for the best stories. This past Saturday I was meeting a friend for dinner and arrived early at the restaurant. (I’m always early to everything.) By the time my cell […]

Mocha Coconut Chocolate Dipped Macaroons

If you couldn’t tell, I kind of really love coconut. Just kind of. Coconut: the other white meat In my world, coconut could be its own food group; I love it almost as much as I love chocolate. Please note, I did say almost. Let’s not take things too far. Anyway it’s not like I must choose between […]

Fudge Brownie Chocolate Protein Bars

3 Steps to instant popularity: Step One: Take a class trip to a remote location. Bonus points if the trip lasts more than a week, and double bonus points if the trip includes bus rides of 5 hours or more. Step Two: Bring along a stash of chocolate protein bars large enough to feed a […]

Homemade Chocolate Peppermint Pudding Pops

These pudding pops are like eating a York Peppermint Patty straight from the freezer. True story: It’s been so hot these past few weeks that yesterday I finally decided to bring the popsicle molds back from their post-summer home in the garage. However I probably should have looked at the weather report first… Midday the […]
