S’more Pudding Pie, please

So this was supposed to post on Presidents Day, but I guess it didn’t! Per usual these days, here in southern California anyway, it is February and the temperature is a crisp 80 degrees. That being said, I didn’t want to turn on my oven last week to make dessert! Fortunately, I have a solid, […]

Reese’s Puffs Bars

I made another cereal bar, I know you’re shocked! This particular experiment involved Reese’s Puffs Cereal. I wanted to enhance them, a la the s’more bars, so I added a drizzle of peanut butter and chocolate over the top. Yummers. Now, I will admit, these weren’t my favorite because the cereal didn’t have as much crunch […]

No Bake Cookies

I’ve had this recipe from Food Network stored away for awhile. Years, actually. And one morning, before a cookout a few weeks ago, I couldn’t handle the thought of baking something, so I turned to these. How can you go wrong; chocolate and peanut butter? Less than 15 minutes to make? I was sold. Bonus – I had […]

Microwave Mug Cake

I found a recipe for mug cake like this recipe years ago, and threatened to make it, but never made good. One night when I was fiending for something dessert-y, and coincidentally trolling Pinterest, I found this Salted Caramel version on Babble and thought it’d be a brilliant quick fix. (You know, once I  modified […]

To-Die-For Chocolate Cake

Look, let’s cut to the chase. This is a flour-less chocolate cake that got me an actual standing ovation when I made it last weekend. I’m posting it now so you have time to change all your Thanksgiving dessert plans and make this instead. I will be making it again myself on Thursday, of that […]

Chocolate Puddin’ Pie

I’m really all about not baking lately. You read that correctly. I’m looking for any excuse not to turn on the oven because even the thought of it makes me hot. When I do turn on my oven, to roast veggies or make shrinky dinks, I make sure it’s late at night, at an hour […]

Chocolate Whoopie Pies

Guess what, everyone… I’ve hit 100 posts today! It’s taken a little longer than I planned, but life’s a journey, not a destination, right? I had a super cool post planned, but decided to post this whoopie pie recipe rather than let you guys sit in suspense as you try to figure out what to […]

Toffee Bars

I wanted to make something sweet to bring to the Superbowl party (along with the cheese straws), and I knew the host would be getting his traditional red velvet cake, so I was looking for another flavor to bring to the mix. I was flipping through my Cookie and Biscuit Bible and came across this […]

Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcakes

Sometimes you need to spice things up a bit. A friend of mine had been going on and on about Mexican Hot Chocolate, which is hot chocolate with some added chili pepper and cinnamon. Although I had never tried it myself, I figured it could be easily recreated in a cupcake recipe. I was right. […]

Gingerbread S’morenies

It all started with this cookie: I bought a little package of those little gingerbread men because I thought it would be yummy to make s’mores in the microwave with them (I already had chocolate and marshmallows at home). Then it hit me, mid s’more, that these would be great in brownies, so I decided […]
