Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

Most recipes you’ll find on this site are very easy, relatively quick, and usually inexpensive. This recipe is one of the exceptions, but I just had to share it with you. When I saw this recipe on another blog, I just knew I had to try it. Matt (my hubby) is a HUGE fan of [...]

Peanut Butter Balls

Are you starting to get the picture here? I’m somewhat obsessed with peanut butter…can you tell? I think it’s one of the finest things on this earth! And something about this time of year makes me want to eat it in every single dessert or sweet that I make. I promise after this week the [...]

Ritz Cracker Candy

Call this candy what you like, I simply call it crack because it’s just that dang addictive! If you are a salty/sweet combo person, you are going to LOVE this treat.

Hello Mandy Bars

Saturday, December 18th, 2010

Peanut Butter Krunchies

Monday, December 13th, 2010

This is probably THE all-time favorite Christmas candy of anything that my family has ever made. I can only think of one person who doesn’t like these, and that’s my dad. But he doesn’t like peanut butter, so it’s a given he wouldn’t like these. I can’t imagine anyone ever not liking peanut butter because [...]

This time of year something just makes me want to eat sweets…doesn’t matter what it is as long as it has LOTS of sugar in it. I can’t resist so why even try? I’ll work it all off after the start of the new year, right? So since I’m in baking overload, I made this [...]
