Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Bars

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

Are you sick of dessert recipes yet? No???? Well, here’s another one then! We leave for Boston again in just a few short days and I’m trying to avoid going to the grocery store and leaving unused groceries here while when we head out, so I’m using up all the stuff in my freezer. Which [...]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

I won’t deny it. I’m wholeheartedly a chewy cookie person! Don’t give some crunchy dry cookie! Give me the real deal…a chewy, thick bakery style cookie that is melty and gooey! If you fall into the same category as me, you’ll love these little squares. The other day I was in a hurry and was [...]

Creamy Fruit Dip

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

In this photo once again, you’ll see those yummy Louisiana strawberries. Can you tell I’m a bit obsessed? All winter long I went without eating my favorite fruit because they were so dang expensive, and now that the local farmer’s market has had them I just can’t get enough! When I was doing Weight Watchers [...]

Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

This yummy recipe comes to you from yet another friend…I love it when friends are willing to share their recipes! This is one super easy, delicious cake.

Cream Cheese and Pepper Jelly

This is one of those all-time favorite Southern appetizers that can be found on almost any buffet table, wedding reception, birthday party, pretty much any gathering you can imagine. I [...]

“Consider Yourself Warned” Snack Mix

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Catchy name, right? My smart little brain came up with that one all by myself because the title of this recipe says it all…one bite of this delicious, crunchy, ranchy (yes, that’s a word…at least in my world) snack mix and you’ll be forever unable to stop yourself from grabbing “just one more” handful. My [...]

Peanut Butter Brownies

Monday, April 4th, 2011

Yum, Yum, Yum! When I say that I have a ridiculous amount of cookbooks, I truly believe that even that comment is an understatement. I just love them, what can I say? I read them cover to cover just like other people read biographies or romance novels. Almost every single night I end my night [...]

Cheesy Ritz Dip

Monday, April 4th, 2011

Does this photo entice you to look further? Yummy, cheesy goodness at it’s best is lying just ahead for you! I’ve seen this dip in every single community cookbook I’ve ever purchased, and with good reason…it’s absolutely delicious and one of the easiest things to make! I first tried a similar version of this dip [...]
