Peppermint Bark

Thumbnail for 6025
This classic peppermint bark has layers of dark chocolate, white chocolate and crushed candy canes. Peppermint bark is quite possible my favorite treat to make for the holidays. Yes, I love buckeyes and peanut butter blossoms, but peppermint bark, more than anything, just screams Christmas to me. I make it ridiculously early (like, as soon as [...]

Grab and Go Breakfast Bars

I eat granola bars for breakfast almost every day. It’s my go to morning meal when I’m in a hurry or when I’m traveling and need an easy on-the-go treat. So when I teamed up with The Quaker Oats Company to share a recipe that makes my morning easier, I couldn’t wait to make these Cherry Almond Grab and Go Granola Bars for you guys. Of cours [...]

The Bakery Order Book IS A LIE

The Bakery Order Book IS A LIE
We all know asking a bakery to match a cake photo you brought in is inviting disaster, but what about the photos in their own order book? SURELY they can match those, right? [poker face] [lip quiver] BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAAHAHAAAAAA! Heehee! Hoo! Heh. Aheh. Heh. [wiping eyes] Sorry. I held it together as long as I could, honest. I want yo [...]

The Weekend Dish: 11/28/2015

Thumbnail for 5935
Happy post-Thanksgiving, last-Saturday-in-November! I hope you had a great holiday on Thursday! I am still stuffed! That’s not stopping me, however, from eating leftover pecan pie. It works out incredibly well that I prefer pecan pie and my husband prefers pumpkin; there’s no overlapping when it comes to digging into leftover pie! [...]

Happy Thanksgiving/Ridiculous Turkey Cake Day!
It’s Thanksgiving! WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON THE INTERNET?! Just kidding. I know we’re all on our phones, Facebooking about our racist relatives and how many times the smoke alarm’s gone off.

Thumbnail for 5926
This caramel apple cake is full of cinnamon and apples and is topped off with a simple salted caramel frosting. With gluten-free and 100% whole grain options. I posted this caramel apple cake over on My Baking Addiction the other day and thought twice before posting it over here. I don’t think MBA’s audience is all too interested [...]

Thanksgiving Leftover Ideas

Thumbnail for 5924
Thanksgiving is TOMORROW! Can you believe it?! In my family, it wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without being able to stock up on at least a couple of days worth of leftovers once dinner is finished. I always factor leftovers into my menu planning and make sure to have disposable to-go containers so that guests can fill them up after dinner. B [...]
