Candy Cane Brownies

Print Friendly and PDF



I'm back! And in hopes that you will forgive me for my brief absence, I bear gifts of fudgy, flourless brownies topped with a fluffy peppermint cream cheese frosting and studded with the delicate crunch of candy canes. 

Am I forgiven?

Cranberry Cream Cheese Crumble Bars

Print Friendly and PDF



If there's one thing that I love as much as sweet potatoes (or dare I say... even more??) it's cranberries.

That's why I am totally stealing this old post of mine from 2011 and remaking it. Partly also because those pictures were horrid and partly because I wanted to try them out gluten free because I NEED these bars in my life right now and I hadn't figured out my gluten problem way back then when I made up this recipe. So basically I was just unknowingly poisoning myself with every beautiful, wonderful bite I was enjoying.

The Perfect Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Print Friendly and PDF



In case you haven't guessed from my pen name, sweet potatoes (AKA yams) are pretty much my favorite thing ever. So why has it taken me almost seven years of blogging to finally post my favorite recipe for my favorite food? I can't tell you. All I know is that I'm here doing it now.

Microwave Pumpkin Spice Caramel Corn

Print Friendly and PDF




So tell me, does the candy corn scattered in this beautiful, crunchy mess make you gag or did your mouth start watering for it as soon as you flipped the calendar to October? 

I know there are strong feelings about candy corn. I wasn't sure what mine were though. I thought that maybe, being pregnant and all, I might eat the entire bag in one sitting (I mean, my mouth started inexplicably watering when I saw this video for Pickle Cupcakes on Facebook yesterday, so I really have no idea what weird things this baby will make me do).

Cream Cheese Swirled Pumpkin Muffins {With Gluten Free Option}

Print Friendly and PDF



So... I sat down about four hours ago to write this post for you about the most moist and luscious pumpkin muffins you will ever eat in your life, but I decided to quickly check my email first. 

Bad idea. 

Lo and behold, I had an email from Snapfish saying I had a gift of a FREE 5x7 photo book. I immediately set to work going through every, single photo from the last 12 months to make a book of my baby's first year. 

Yes, that's right, my little baby boy isn't a little baby boy anymore. He's a 1 year old. *sob, choke, splutter, cough*

But luckily, my baby fever will soon be satiated (in February, to be exact, in case you haven't heard).

Flourless Dark Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Print Friendly and PDF



Here I am, sitting in Wyoming, (mostly) all moved in.

Actually, I could be folding the millions of garbage bags full of clothes sitting in my room or organizing my new cupboards, but since I currently have a sick baby snoring on my chest, I have no choice but to tell you all about these outrageous, big, fat, gooey, dark chocolate brownie cookies that I made to break in my new kitchen.

(Because it's not my kitchen until there's a fine dusting of cocoa powder on everything in sight.)

Cinnamon Swirl Zucchini Bread {With Gluten Free Option}

Print Friendly and PDF



My apologies. 

I was startled, shocked, and chagrined to find just now that I have not given you a new recipe for 1 1/2 months (!!!!!). I thought it had just been a couple weeks, probably because it has just been so crazy and hectic around here all summer. We've had Samuel's brother's wedding (which I made the cake for), my brother's wedding (which we both stood up in), our wonderful up North vaction (off the grid, so I do have a valid excuse!), and my family coming to visit here and hang out on Lake Huron with us. 

So basically this summer has been just like a summer should be, full of family, lakes, and weddings, and now, as August has arrived, zucchini.
