Tiger Butter

Monday, December 12th, 2011

I have no idea where this recipe originated since we’ve been making it every Christmas for as long as I can remember, but I would love to personally thank whoever came up with it. As you all know, I’m a bit of a peanut butter and chocolate addict. You put the two of those things [...]

Peppermint Crunch Bark

Saturday, December 10th, 2011

Nothing says the holidays quite like this yummy, crunchy, pepperminty bark! I make this bark every year and package it in pretty little containers to give away. It makes great gifts for office friends, bosses, customers, teachers, and friends! It’s also something great to take to holiday parties. And to make it even more appealing, it’s [...]

Reindeer Chow

Friday, December 9th, 2011

This delicious recipe was shared with me by my sweet friend Robin. That girl can make me laugh like nobody’s business, and my kids think she hung the moon and stars just for them! Making this recipe is one of those things that my kids look forward to every year around Christmas time, and they look even [...]

Mae Mae’s 5 Pound Fudge

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

I’ve told y’all about my Mae Mae before, the sweetest lady that I’ve ever known in my entire life. She was my mom’s mom and she was the best cook that I’ve ever met. Bobby Flay wouldn’t have a prayer if put up in a throwdown with my Mae Mae! When I think of Christmas [...]

Reese’s Bars

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

I hope you like Christmas candy because I am on Christmas candy overload and am trying to post some of my favorites for all of you to enjoy. Speaking of, everyone loves Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, right? If you don’t, you deserve a bed at a mental hospital in my opinion. Seriously, who couldn’t love [...]

Pistachio & Cranberry White Chocolate Bark

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Can you say heaven on earth? Because that’s what these little bits are, little tiny pieces of heaven right here on earth! I actually made this recipe last week and the day after my mother-in-law came over to keep the kids for me while I went to run an errand. When I came back she [...]

Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

Monday, November 28th, 2011

I am so ready for Christmas that I just don’t know what to do! My family has been through so many trials and tribulations this year that I have made a promise to myself to enjoy this Christmas season as much as possible, no matter how tough things are. This is a time for family [...]

Double Chocolate Buttermilk Muffins

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Please forgive me, but I’m going to do it again. I’m passing you all another muffin recipe that is pretty much just an excuse to eat dessert for breakfast. Chocolate is good for you, though, right? At least that’s what I’ve read (I throw away the magazines that say otherwise, don’t you?). Those are the kind [...]

Peanut Butter Snickers Bars

Friday, October 14th, 2011

 Why do they do this to me? Design all of those cutesy displays and fill row after row with all different kinds of candy? Oh and what’s that you say? These big bags of yummy candy deliciousness are on sale for 2/$5? Well in that case, I’ll take two of every bag you sell thankyouverymuch. [...]

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

If you follow my blog regularly you may remember reading about our family’s many trips to Boston for my son’s surgeries (he’s had 18 of them now). While he is in the hospital, we have very limited access to restaurants. There are a few right around the hospital, and of course the cafeteria inside the [...]
