Peppermint Brownies

Mint and chocolate is one of my all time favorite combinations and is a classic for the holiday season. Combine it with fudgy brownies and it’s pure perfection. Although I do love peppermint, I enjoy it in small doses. Like peppermint patties…one bite is enough to fulfill my sweet tooth. So when I saw this recipe I

Salted Caramel Rice Krispie Treats

When I think of fall, pumpkin and apples always come to mind. But another flavor profile that screams fall to me is caramel. Whether it’s caramel corn, rolls, cake, cider or apple pie, it’s always fall when I consider them.  It’s rich, sweet and creamy and salt always makes it better. We had some friends over recently for a Husker

Frosted Zucchini Brownies {Gluten and Lactose Free}

My zucchini supply is finally starting to wind down, thank goodness. As much as I normally like zucchini, I will be happy to not see it for awhile. I had picked the last few right before we were heading out for Kansas City to visit our new nephew and see the Royals play the Red Sox and

Oatmeal Creme Pie Bars

We had our big ultrasound last week and everything went perfectly! Baby measured in at the 49th percentile with very long legs…taking after its daddy already. Baby was a wiggle worm and was constantly trying to suck its thumb. It was just so wonderful to see the little one and have that validation that everything
