Cherry White Chocolate Trifles with Brownies Recipe #LuckyLeafSpring

*sponsored content on behalf of Lucky Leaf After what felt like a never-ending winter, I can finally say it actually FEELS like Spring outside. We've got the windows open, the grass seems to have turned green overnight and my tulips are starting to creep out of the ground. This change in weather makes me want to go outside and have a picnic with my daughter. Since this is her last year home with me before Kindergarten, I'm taking every … [Read more...]

Candy Dipped OREOS with Candy Sea Shells for a Little Mermaid themed Birthday Party

Chocolate Cookie Dough Flips Recipe with Coffee-mate Italian Sweet Creme #ExtraSweetCreamyCGC

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Flips Recipe

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee! Think maybe I had a cup or two already today? You'd be thinking correctly. Coffee is my best friend in the morning and my side kick in the evening - decaf of course. But there's something else I love as much or maybe even more than coffee and that's my creamer. For me, it has to be sweet, smooth and extra creamy, erasing any bit of bitterness that coffee sometimes has. And now, Coffee-mate has several flavors with a … [Read more...]

Triple Chocolate Holiday Fudge Recipe

Triple Chocolate Holiday Fudge Recipe |

When it comes to making candy during the holidays, my experiences are limited to fudge and sweet caramel candies. I'm not the kind of person that likes to mess with cooking things on the stove that reaches 200+ degrees. I'm prone to accidents, especially when it comes to burning myself. Just yesterday I reached in my oven to check on cookies and pressed my knuckles right onto the electric heating element. <-- holy ouch! But thanks to dad, I … [Read more...]
