Chocolate Raspberry Sandwich Cookies

Chocolate Raspberry Sandwich Cookies

Chocolate Raspberry Sandwich Cookies – Two chewy chocolate cookies surround a swirl of creamy raspberry frosting. It’s a perfect way to treat yourself or someone special. The chocolate-raspberry combo seems a bit underrated to me. What do you think? People go gaga for chocolate and peanut butter or chocolate strawberry while this pair sits quietly in the […]

Unique S'mores

S’mores with a Twist – Welcome to my s’more-gasbord! I’m sharing seven fun twists on s’mores. I have experimented with lots of different fillings and a few graham cracker replacements in the classic cook-out dessert.

Peanut Butter and Fluff Cookies

Peanut Butter and Fluff Cookies

Peanut Butter and Fluff Cookies At twelve years old, I swore I had the most difficult life ever. My middle-school-self decided my life was impossibly unfair because my mom often packed peanut butter and jelly for lunch. Never mind that there was more food in my lunch bag than some kids get in an entire day. I was clearly deprived […]

Confetti Yogurt Fruit Dip

Confetti Yogurt Fruit Dip

Confetti Yogurt Fruit Dip – There are three things little kids can’t resist; dip, sprinkles, and doing things themselves. Here we combine them to make a fun healthy snack. I tried this experiment with my three-year-old son, CJ. “CJ, do you want some fruit?” “No tanks, Mommy.” “Do you want yogurt?” “No tanks.” “How about we […]

Peeping Peeps Bunny Cupcakes

Peeps Bunny Cupcakes

Peeping Peeps Bunny Cupcakes – Marshmallow bunnies peep out of their holes to join us for the Peeps Week finale!

Lucky for them, the bunnies stay whole in this easy kitchen craft. You can use any […]

Peeps Truffle Pie

Peeps Truffle Pie This pretty Peep-topped-pie features fluffy Peeps whipped cream frosting and smooth truffle filling in a graham cracker crust. It’s like a giant s’more; a giant rainbow s’more!
