Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting and Candy

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! Halloween has never really been my FAVORITE holiday per say, but now I have kids and it’s like new life has been breathed into me about how fun this holiday can be. I pretty much only liked Halloween before because it was the beginning of the holiday season and I LOOOOVE the holiday season. Maybe it’s because I don’t love candy. Even as a kid, I would stash my Halloween candy away for a time when I REEEEEALLLY wanted it… and then that time would never come.

Caramel Apple Slices

I love eating caramel apples. I’m being sarcastic. I hate eating caramel apples. Now, don’t get me wrong. I love the TASTE of caramel apples. But the actual EATING of caramel apples is horrendous. I never know where to take the first bite, the caramel gets so stuck in my teeth I’m pretty sure a filling came out the last time I ate one and the toppings usually end up everywhere BUT in my mouth. But here we are. Loving caramel apples yet hating eating them. And that’s where the

Pumpkin Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

DUDE. This pumpkin cake is probably the best pumpkin cake I’ve ever had in my entire life… and I’m not exaggerating even a little bit, because that would be irresponsible. It is FREAKING moist *shudder*, PERFECTLY spiced with all of your favorite fall spices and the cinnamon cream cheese frosting… ah, man… it’s perfection. It’s the literal icing on the literal cake. If you make only one pumpkin thing all fall, make this cake. Seriously. I’m not joking. You have to roll all th

Devil Cupcakes

You probably don’t know because I NEVER talk about it, but I’m a high school volleyball coach. That was sarcasm. I always talk about it. I won’t shut up about it, actually. I’m like a proud Mama hen because I coach the BEST girls in the history of the universe. I seriously feel like I have 20 daughters, but it’s cool because I didn’t have to give birth to 19 of them. Starting today we are heading into the State Tournament. It’s everything we’ve been working toward for the las

Dinner in a Pumpkin

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! (tomorrow) I cannot wait to show you guys the costume I made for Baby Girl. It is RIDICULOUSLY CUTE. I got the idea off of Pinterest. Of course. I don’t think I’ll ever have another original idea in my entire life now that Pinterest does all the work for me. What better way to celebrate Halloween than to eat dinner OUT OF A PUMPKIN, though?! Well, I guess there technically are better ways to celebrate. Like dressing up. Or getting chocolate wasted. My aweso

Pumpkin Biscuits with Maple Butter

What’s up FALL?! It’s actually been Fall for a while now in case you were wondering but this is the first pumpkin recipe on the blog, so now it’s O-FISH. Ahh…. I don’t think I can pull off the whole shortening words thing. I’m only 24 and I’m already way too old for that crap. Now! Back to the biscuits. I didn’t know if I was going to appreciate these but they were crazy magical. I popped them warm out of the oven, split one in half and watched as the steam billowed off the t

Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Cookies

YOU GUYS. These cookies are INSANE. They are everything that a peanut butter cookie should be. Soft, gooey, and the Reese’s Pieces add the most amazing texture and a subtle crunch. They are just… mind-blowing. Honestly, I have never really loved candy. I was the kid who would save my Halloween candy for a time that I felt more like eating it, and then I would find it the next Halloween. Untouched. But if I had known that I could have baked all of that candy into delicious coo

Homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter Bars

You know what’s good? Candy. You know what’s even better? Homemade candy. My sister-in-law made these bars one night, and I was 95% positive that she sprinkled crack throughout them because they were ADDICTING. Turns out it was just powdered sugar. Which is pretty much the same thing. Usually I can resist making a dessert depending on where it falls on the addictive/pain in the butt scale. Unfortunately for my waistline, these fall perfectly under BOTH the easy as sin AND ins

The Best Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies in the World

Pretty sure I accidentally blinked and pumpkin season is already almost over. That is totally why everyone in Utah is obsessed with Fall… it only lasts for like four seconds and then it’s winter. I’m a sucker for Fall as well. I bake to my little heart’s content, I buy every gosh dang pumpkin spice candle within eyesight and I dress baby girl in the most adorable fall outfits of all time. Because seriously. SERIOUSLY. I still can’t believe that perfect tiny human came from me
