Chocolate Pudding Cupcakes

I was out and about town the other day looking for what Halloween items had been marked down already to see if there was any decorations I needed for the house. I was at Target and stumbled upon Peeps. Now for me Peeps have always been an Easter treat. It never occurred to me that […] Continue reading >

Pumpkin Bread Cake Balls

  It's that time of year when everything has pumpkin in it. Now don't get me wrong, I'm a lover of pumpkin. I don't know why I don't eat it every month of the year, but for some strange reason, I limit my pumpkin consumption to October and November. Every year I keep saying I'm […] Continue reading >

Chocolate Rum Banana Bread

What more do I need to say other than chocolate, rum, and bananas? Ok maybe just a little bit more, but I'm sure you get the idea. I picked up some bananas the other day just for the purpose of making bread. I don't like eating bananas when they are this ripe, but I love […] Continue reading >

New York Bagels

I have been craving New York bagels for weeks. And I'll just say that being in Austin there is no chance of getting them here. And a flight to NY just to get bagels makes this a pretty expensive craving. I have never made bagels before so I thought I would do a little research and test […] Continue reading >

Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

I've always been fascinated by bees, and after my Costa Rica vacation this year, I learned so much more about bees after doing some tours. There was no way I was going to pass up an event held by the National Honey Board to hear more about bees. There were a few beekeepers I got to […] Continue reading >

The Cronut™

I'm not even sure where to start this post, other than, go to the grocery store, get these ingredients and make this pastry. For those of you that don't know what a cronut is or who Dominique Ansel is, just type any of those words into Google and watch the thousands of results pop up. […] Continue reading >
