Dessert! Tequila Lime Coconut Bars.
I am in Cinco de Mayo mode around here, I tell ya! Mexican food, tequila drinks, hanging out with friends… it’s been fun! On Monday I shared my tips for an easy Cinco de Mayo Girls’ Night In, and that I asked friends to bring an appetizer or a dessert to the party. My friend […]
Chocolate hazelnut butter toffee brittle. Yum!
I make this around Christmas time each year and give it out to friends and neighbors. It is a big hit! Easy to make, yummy to eat, and hazelnuts make it extra special.
Mocha Brownie Tart – yummy in my tummy.
Today I want to share one of my favorite recipes: Mocha Brownie Tart. This is super easy and is one of my family’s favorites. It combines some of my favorite things… brownies, coffee and hazelnuts. (I am a sucker for hazelnuts!) This is really yummy. For the past 2 years, Mitch has requested this for […]
Banana Boats… a tasty twist on campfire desserts.
I’ve done plenty of camping posts and dessert round-ups, but a few months ago I heard about “Banana Boats” and I knew we had to give them a try on our next camping trip. These were yummy and SO easy to make! You will need: a few bananas, mini-marshmallows, peanut butter, chopped chocolate (or mini […]
Mocha-Caramel Graham Pudding (An easy, make-ahead summer dessert)
One of the things I really love about summer-time is that lighter schedules make it easier to have impromptu get-togethers with friends. Do you ever run into a friend on the street, at the store, whatever and 5 minutes later you’re planning a BBQ or picnic dinner for that evening? Happens to me all the time […]
Brownies with Chocolate-Caramel Glaze: A special moment dessert.
We had some friends over for dinner Saturday night for an easy BBQ. (It wasn’t a last minute thing, but it wasn’t exactly on the books for weeks either.) I realized that our friends Rick and Rose both had birthdays this week. Not wanting to make this A Birthday Party, but still wanting to […]
A S’Mores Recipe Round-Up (since I can’t wait for summer…)
Ah, camping and summer vacations… Ah, S’Mores…. Ah, Pinterest. We’re starting to plan our summer camping trip and vacations. It’s got me thinking about S’Mores. I love them, but sometimes they are hard to make, (or messy) or your vacation plans are taking you someplace that isn’t good for S’Mores Making. Pinterest has some answers […]
Deep Fried Ice Cream…? Yes, please! Laura from OHJN shows us how.
I’m on my first full day of camping today. We camp near Lake Tahoe each year and when I was a kid, one of the best parts of the trip was to drive in to Lake Tahoe for the afternoon, do a little shopping, and have lunch at Carlos Murphy’s. My favorite thing on their […]
Apples Malloy: the dessert that will turn you into a piggy. (Or maybe that’s just me.)
A few months back I was at a pot luck beach party. There was a vast array of food to choose from. One that I had never seen before had sliced Granny Smith apples and some sort of cream cheese and chocolate chip concoction to dip the apples in. I took a tentative bite. I […]
