I needed a last minute dessert. And by ‘last minute’ I mean dinner was served the dishes were cleaned and then it dawned on me, ‘I should serve a dessert’. Fruit compote to the rescue! This would be a good one to print or bookmark for those dessert 911 situations.Read More
Not only does this recipe come from Chex™ but so did all the ingredients! Back on July 4th I made a Chex™ mix snack with pretzels and M&M’s and white chocolate. I made little snack packs for my family to enjoy at the movies and they LOVED it, like really really enjoyed it….Read More

I started making these at least 6 years ago to take to a boot camp class I helped instruct. They were the perfect little snack to refuel after a heart pumping workout. These delectable little sandwiches had fallen off my radar until I needed to make something that would be fun for kids, in their lunch box or after school.Read More
Now I may not be the foremost expert on Danish food but I do know how good their ebelskivers are! Ebelskivers are traditionally served as a dessert because they are pretty sweet. Think pancake, but better. Better because they are little round popper-shaped pancakes filled with your favorite jam, chocolate or fruit and they can be handheld. I love dunking them in maple syrup!Read More
I LOVE lemon everything! So when I saw this recipe circulating around my Instagram account I knew I had to try it. It looks so refined yet you literally throw everything (including the lemon rind) into the blender, mix and you’re done. It doesn’t get any easier!Read More
Pear Chips for the WIN over sweet snack cravings!
I love pears anyway so it’s no surprise that I gobbled these right up! They are my late night, TV watching snicky-snack when that sweet craving sneaks up on me. Pears are naturally sweet so you don’t have to add much sugar, which is good, because lately I’ve had a wicked sweet tooth. haha!
What goes better together than coffee and chocolate? Nothing! Well except maybe chocolate and red wine, LOL! Anyway, I posted on my Instagram stories that I was making these energy bites and the DM’s started flooding in (thank you friends) so as soon as I was finished I wanted to get this recipe on the blog. I made 4 batches and after a few tweaks in the first batch I feel comfortable sharing the recipe. Enjoy!Read More

I pulled this one out of the vault. I started making this dip maybe 10 years ago, I had kind of forgotten about it until a friend asked me for the recipe last week. It got me thinking, you know, that was a really popular dessert dip. So I carved a little pumpkin as a serving dish and whipped up a batch.Read More
Does anyone not like berry cobbler? Not me, I love the stuff! In fact, I’ll take a berry dessert over a chocolate one any day. As far back as I can remember I’ve loved cobbler, there’s just something about it’s that good for the soul.Read More
Back in 2013 and 2014 I made this snack so often (like once a week for months) that I burnt out my taste buds. Time went on and I had forgotten how good these little guys were and how convenient they were to just grab one as I'm running out the door. BUT…I’m bringing them back starting NOW! :)Read More
Use this pie crust for your favorite no bake and baked pies!

After my mom passed away my dad and I started the process of looking through her things. While this is a process I wish no one had to go thru, it is an inevitable part of life. As hard as it was, I was also reminded of memories. Good memories of time spent with my momma in the kitchen.Read More
Sometimes I walk through the grocery store and buy completely random ingredients without reason or plan. Well, that was the case with these figs. Trader Joes gets me every time, they always have fresh, seasonal food that inspires me to get creative. So I proudly picked up the carton of figs and got to thinking. My 'recipe thinking' usually happens in the kitchen while opening and closing the fridge and pantry and looking around.Read More
