Homemade Chocolate Syrup

So last week I shared with you my favorite Chocolate Butterfinger Cake that was made extra special because I made my own chocolate syrup.  There have been many times when having some frozen yogurt or chocolate chip pancakes or making a milkshake where I have thought to myself, “I wish I had some chocolate syrup […]

Guest Post: Hot Dog Buns

While you are reading this, I am lounging on the beach in the Caribbean!! Adam & I went back to where we went on our honeymoon and I can’t wait to tell you all about it when we get back next week.  I will only be checking in online a few of the days we […]

Chocolate Butterfinger Cake

I put one bite of this cake in my mouth and I was instantly transported to somewhere amazing.  It’s other worldly I tell you! The cake is so moist and the sweetness from the chocolate and caramel and the creaminess of the whipped topping is just heavenly.  I amped it up another notch and made […]

Southern Style Potato Salad

Nothing quite says summer like a cookout with burgers, potato salad and baked beans, and of course watermelon for dessert.  I know there’s this stigma about potato salad with mayo, but I promise this isn’t your basic run of the mill potato salad.  It has great flavor and is very fresh tasting! I love me […]

Homemade Marshmallow Fluff

Marshmallow Fluff is heavenly isn’t it!? When I was little my mom would make me peanut butter and fluff sandwiches for a special treat and I loved them so.  After I made the homemade graham crackers I got to thinking about s’mores and how it would be fun to just use marshmallow fluff instead of […]

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter S’mores

I was trying to think of something fun to do with the graham crackers when I remembered seeing these on Picky Palate a while back and thought it was the perfect way to use them.  I also decided to put marshmallow fluff in them too which made the entire thing AMAZING! I actually made my […]

Homemade Graham Crackers

So it’s graham cracker/s’mores week here are Macaroni and Cheesecake! I probably mention this too often, but I just love s’mores. That and red velvet are my two favorite flavors of desserts whether it be cookies, ice cream, cake, etc.  But of course I love s’mores in their pure form too and that made me […]

Strawberry on Top: Birthday Celebration

So a month ago, Adam turned 32.  Yes I’m just now blogging about it!:) What we do is celebrate a whole birthday weekend with lots of fun things and whatever you want to do for the entire weekend.  How do you celebrate birthdays? I started his birthday by greeting him with several fun signs around […]

Strawberry Cheesecake Sandwich Cookies (Guest Post)

When Carrie of Bakeaholic Mama asked me to guest post on her blog with a strawberry treat, I knew I wanted to incorporate cheesecake in some way because Adam is CRAZY for cheesecake.  We even had cheesecake as the groom’s cake at our wedding.  These cookies are a fun spin on traditional cheesecake and perfect […]

Easy Southern Style Baked Beans

I adore baked beans.  If there’s barbecue or burgers, I want baked beans on the side.  I realized I’ve never made baked beans aside from opening a can of Bush’s!;) So I found this recipe and it’s semi-homemade as it does start with Pork & Beans, but you could easily soak your beans overnight and […]
