Valentine’s Day Peanut Butter Cups

Everyone loves a little chocolate on Valentine’s Day! Sure, you can head out and buy one of those big fancy hearts, but would it mean as much as if you made something from scratch? What if I told you that you could make your own delicious peanut butter cups in less than an hour? 

Cookies & Cream Donuts

I can’t get enough of Oreos!!! They are definitely one of my weaknesses when it comes to sweets and I don’t have the willpower to say no to all of their deliciousness. Last month, I posted a recipe for Cookies & Cream Cupcakes which received quite a response. So, I am back this month with a new recipe for you to enjoy.

Easy Monkey Bread

A few days ago, I woke up and decided I was going to cook and bake all day. I’m not sure what lit the fire under me, but it turned out to be an extremely productive day. Aside from my Blueberry Cobbler, this super Easy Monkey Bread was in the oven.

This Monkey Bread smells and tastes just as good as it looks. Lots of sweet, ooey gooey goodness and love went into this one. It is made with Pillsbury biscuits, chopped walnuts, raisins and has the perfect cinnamon to sugar ratio. I could honestly eat the whole thing in one sitting if I knew I wouldn’t suffer the consequences on the bathroom scale the following morning.

Blueberry Cobbler

Blueberries are quite popular in our home. The kids, especially my little guy, love to put them in their cereal and sometimes, he will request them alone for a snack. It’s the cutest thing! Then again, I think everything he does is cute. Probably because I’m his Mom.

We enjoy shopping at local farmers markets. The atmosphere is so lovely and it seems to encourage my littles to eat healthier. The kids love picking their own fruits and veggies which probably works in my favor as well, because if they picked it, most likely…they’ll eat it! Whenever there is a sale on Blueberries, we tend to stock up. However, after our last trip, I think I may have bought too many blueberries.

Cookies & Cream Cupcakes

I’m here to confess my love for cookies and cream; It’s kind of an obsession…

Cookies and cream ice cream, Hershey’s bars, milkshakes, cheesecake, you name it; I’ve tried it. Oh, yeah! Fried Oreos. Goodness, I love those too!

But let’s talk cupcakes. It’s no secret that I love cupcakes too. They are so much fun to bake, frost and decorate. The possibilities seem to be endless! I had been thinking of these for a few weeks now and finally found the time to give them a go.

Can I just tell you how yummy they are? They have an Oreo at the bottom, Oreos in the batter and are topped with a yummy cream cheese frosting and of course, Oreo cookie crumbs. The best!!!

It’s a cookie overload and you have to make these!

Fresh Strawberry Zevia Cupcakes

My good friend over at Young at Heart Mommy told me about Zevia a few weeks ago. So, I decided to give it a try and I was amazed at how great it tasted. We are loyal Whole Foods shoppers so I was excited when I found it on one of my most recent shops. I purchased a few 6 packs and decided to see what our friends thought at Bunbun’s Birthday Party. Since then, I have only been drinking Zevia when I am craving those crisp, refreshing bubbles of carbonation. What makes it even better is that it is GMO free, clear of any coloring, all natural, zero calories, no artificial sweeteners, and the best one….NO SUGAR! Which means I don’t have to say no when Bunbun or my little guy ask for some. Total Win!

Star Spangled Apple Pie Cake

Every year, a few days before July 4th, the neighbors line their front yards with American Flags. We invite friends over, cook out back, the kids swim in the pool and we light and watch the fireworks above. It’s always a great day! And for me, a beautiful reminder of my Grandfather. He passed on when I was a little girl, but I will never forget how much he loved this country and July 4th was his favorite holiday. I think Christmas was a close second though…

I’ll always remember the block parties, the sound of country music, the taste of the iced tea and the delightful smell of fresh baked apple pie. Oh gosh, those days were the best! Especially when they were spent on the lake with the boats, jetski’s and fishing poles. The days were warm and the nights were long. Those were some of the best days of my childhood.

Wonton Cannoli Cups

My obsession with cannoli filling is something fierce! We can’t even go to an Italian restaurant without ordering them. And for some reason, I think the kids may actually love them more than us. Sure, Publix sells them pre-made. It’s just not the same! It took years for me to finally find a place that makes them the way I remember them tasting as a child. Oh Gosh! Just thinking about them makes me salivate. I literally licked the bowl on this one…

Strawberry Glazed Donuts

Oh how I just love summer. Relaxing, crafting, spending time with my kids and….Strawberries! They bring back such fond memories of my childhood. I remember when I was a little girl, my grandparents would take me out to the strawberry fields every year and we would pick fresh strawberries. I remember putting them in my little green basket and how sweet they tasted. Just perfect! Theres nothing like fresh strawberries in the summer to keep you feeling refreshed.
