Cranberry White Chocolate Bread Pudding

Merry Christmas Eve, peeps!!! I’m so super stoked for Christmas this year. Baby Girl has been so fun and obsessed over Santa. Like, full on fangirling every time. Until he tries to talk to her, then she clams up and stares straight at her feet. She thinks EVERY dude that has a white beard is Santa. Pretty sure that every dude with a white beard thinks he is Santa as well, though. Anyway, whenever Santa sees Baby Girl he usually likes to come and talk to her. She is so shy if

Milk Chocolate Cream Pie

Oh, month of pies how I love you. This month is giving me the opportunity to try making things that I’ve never made before, and believe it or not… a chocolate pie is one of those things. I have always LOOOOOVED chocolate cream pies, but had never attempted to make one myself. Well, that has now changed, everybody. And seriously, they are kind of embarassingly easy to make. I am slightly ashamed that I’ve never made one before… And now I’ve just admitted it for the whole world

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

Recipes for the Fourth of July

Happy Fourth of July, tomorrow! I thought today would be a good day to remind you of some recipes that will be a hit at your Fourth of July BBQ. What shall we start with? Drinks! This Cucumber Punch is easy to throw together and super refreshing on a hot summer day. By far the most popular recipe on the blog. This Brazilian Lemonade will seriously blow you and your guests away. A few mushrooms, a few onions and a little bit of A.1. makes these sirloin burgers extra special. G

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

Creamy Cookie Dessert

I come from a family of amazing cooks. This recipe is comin’ at ya courtesy of my Aunt Brenda. She is totally amazing and cool and can not only cook up a storm, but she can run like 100 miles without stopping and has TRIPLETS. Yeah… I only have one bun in the oven right now, and I’m about ready to wave the white flag. Kudos, Aunt Brenda! I think you are pretty neat. I always end up craving this dessert around Christmas/New Years time for some reason. I don’t know why the crav

Coconut Crap

I have seen many different names for this divine treat. I have seen it called: Coconut Chex Mix Gooey Chex Mix Sweet Chex Mix Christmas Chex Mix Sweet Christmas Chex Christmas Crunch Holiday Chex MixAnd my personal favorites: Who Hash & Christmas CrackIn an effort not to sound like the world’s most awesome drug dealers, my family always called it “Coconut Crap.” Not quite as appetizing, but you sure as heck won’t get it confused with anything else we’ve got goin’ on

Pomegranate Salad

Mmmmmhhh…. pomegranates. They are like the prettiest and tastiest of all the fruits. My little brother can eat them by the POUND. A pound of pomegranates seeds…. that’s a lot of seeds, since they weigh approximately, oh… I don’t know… Nothing. Seriously though, Check those out! They are almost too pretty to eat. Key word = almost. They are really awesome in so many things, but you need to try them in this salad. I had never had this fruit salad until I married my husband. It
