Caramel Cashew Chewies!

Caramel Cashew Chewies
 
This is a dangerously delicious recipes because you just can't stop eating these. They're crunchy, nutty, chewy, chocolate squares! And they are so easy to make, which just doubles the danger...but I looooove to live dangerously!

Watermelon Dippers!

Watermelon Dippers!

It's watermelon season so I'm always looking for ways to serve this naturally sweet fruit! I love serving it this way because it's fun to dip and I love the contrast of the creamy, tangy dip with the cold, sweet watermelon! It's just perfect!

Sauteed Apples

Sauteed Apples
I'm not a huge fan of canned pie filling because it's just too sweet for my taste. So when I need cooked sweet apples for recipes, this is how I make them. It's so quick, easy and costs less than the canned variety. These sautéed apples are heavenly when served warm with a scoop of ice cream!

I've used these sauteed apples as a filling in recipes such as

No Eggs, No Milk, Banana Bread!

That's right!!! I didn't think it was possible, so I tried it! You know what? It is possible...and it's delicious!!! Below is my photo of the banana bread. It was moist and very flavorful! But the best part is how quick and easy it is too...not to mention low fat! The only change I made was to add a splash of pure vanilla extract to the batter. This recipe is from a cook named Pam Wilson McNicol...thank you Pam!

Ritz Thin Mint Cookies

 
Ritz Thin Mint Cookies

If you love 'Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies' you will love this recipe because it tastes VERY similar! Girl Scouts only sell cookies once per year, so I had to come up with a way to have these all year round.

Pumpkin Pie Dip

Pumpkin Pie Dip
I love all things pumpkin flavored such as cookies, smoothies, latte's, muffins and now dip! I think this is a genius idea! It's so quick to make...no cooking required! Just mix all the ingredients together and chill until ready to serve! Then dig in to this heavenly creamy pumpkin dessert with your favorite cookies or crackers. I used graham crackers at first. Then I tried this dip with unsalted saltine crackers. Both were very good, but I think I liked the unsalted crackers better because the graham crackers were a little too sweet with this dip.

I found my new favorite pumpkin creation on a food blog called...

3 Ingredient Oatmeal Cookies

This is the kind of recipe that keeps me hooked on recipes because it's such a gem! I love finding these simple tasty recipes! These cookies are perfect, quick, easy, delicious, healthy and guilt free! Not to mention that they are soft, bite sized little cuties...Only about an inch and a half in diameter! So fun to just pop into your mouth! Goes so well with a glass of cold milk or a cup of hot coffee/tea.

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies and Cookbook Giveaway

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies and Cookbook Giveaway

Am I the only person on earth that never had a homemade whoopie pie? I've had the store bought kind with the chocolate coated cookie and marshmallow filling. Not a fan of those, so I never thought to try any others! Well, I'm now in love with the homemade variety! It is so much better than those marshmallow ones! It actually can't even compare!

Champagne Cookies


Champagne Cookies
Got Champagne? Then make some cookies! That's what I did with some leftover pink champagne from New Years Eve! These cookies taste very similar to a sweet bread...not too sweet, nice and soft with slightly crunchy edges. And I love how pretty they look! These cookies taste great when eaten with a glass of champagne...or a cup of coffee! You can use any champagne, but I suggest using a not so dry one so that the cookies have some sweetness.

Cannoli Crumb Pie

Cannoli Crumb PieI can never say 'no' to a new way to make cannoli. I've made Cannoli Dip and a parfait called Cannoli Cream Dessert. So why not make a Cannoli Crumb Pie? This pie got rave reviews from a food friend of mine, so that was even more incentive for me to try it!

Super Easy Dessert Crepes

 Dessert Crepes

I've ordered dessert crepes many times in restaurants because it's a nice light dessert after a heavy meal. They can be filled with just about any fruit or even with melted chocolate! Or just roll them up unfilled and serve them with some fresh whipped cream.
