Gooey Fudgy Peanut Buttery Brownies

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Never has a combination of ingredients been more of a hit in my house than chocolate and peanut butter. It’s simply divine! And by divine I mean, if you leave me alone with a pan of something with the ever-famous combination, I will (with no shame, [...]

Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

Monday, March 12th, 2012

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted a recipe for a peanut butter/chocolate treat so it’s well overdue. I never tire of such delicious sweet treats in my house. If there’s peanut butter in it, I’m almost guaranteed to love it! These yummy brownies were no exception. I threw these together one afternoon on [...]

Lizz’s Double Chocolate Cookies

Monday, March 5th, 2012

Geez louise does life ever get so nuts when my hubby is away! He’s gone for 6 weeks at a time to his job in Alaska now and I’m here to tell ya…taking care of a house and three kids all by yourself is quite the job. I barely have time to do anything these [...]

Strawberry Chess Squares

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

Let me just go ahead and get this out there – I’m a huge chess square fan. I’ve never met a dessert with the word “chess” in it that I don’t like. Chess is code word for “awesome stuff”, if you ask me. I have had this recipe idea in my head for a long [...]

Cake Mix Chocolate Chip Cookies

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

You didn’t honestly think I could go an entire week without posting a recipe for something sweet, did you? Good, because if you did you don’t know me at all. My middle child’s birthday was last week and she decided to be particularly difficult in deciding what she wanted to take to her class for [...]

Fran’s Sugar Cookies

Monday, December 19th, 2011

This recipe is another one that goes way back. My sweet aunt, Fran, has been making these cookies for our family every year for Christmas for as long as I can remember. Fran is married to my mom’s brother, Buster, and they have lived away from home more often than not over the years. Even [...]

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 [...]

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

I had hopes of making a pumpkin roll sometime during the Thanksgiving holidays, but time just got away from me. November was such a crazy busy month that I never got a chance to make it and I was so disappointed! I know it’s almost December and it’s time for Christmas goodies and all kinds [...]

Toffee Apple Blondies with Brown Sugar Frosting

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

Just reading the title of this recipe makes my mouth water. Toffee? Apples? Blondies? Oh Em Gee are these ever so delicious! When I first saw this recipe it was one of those that I knew I just had to make soon, and I did…about 5 minutes later. It was a Sunday afternoon, and a [...]

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. [...]
