Take 5 Bark

Take 5 Bark 3

On Friday I told you guys I had something totally magical and delicious to share with you today. And this is it. Take 5 Bark. Did you just hear angels sing? Or maybe you drooled a little. I won’t judge because that’s pretty much what happened to me. I’m not a big candy person, you know

Chocolate and Nut Cornflake Cookies

Every year I say I’m not going bake too many varieties of cookies and treats for Christmas. I’m going to keep it simple. Hah, I think you all know me well enough to know how that goes. My list is up to about 10 already. Ooops. But I can’t really narrow it down when we

Mint Chocolate Mocktinis

I’m back at it with Breyer’s and I’m bringing this deliciously simple Mint Chocolate Mocktini recipe. Isn’t it so stinking festive!?! I don’t know about you but I’m the kind of person that can eat ice cream when it’s 20 degrees outside. Ice cream for life. For those of you who don’t quite share my

Salted Caramel Mochas are my favorite coffee to date and I crave them on the daily. The first time I tried one (a few months ago) was on a day my parents had the kids and Joel was working so I was taking the opportunity to get coffee by myself and work on some new recipes

Sweet and Salty Trail Mix

Here I am again, with another sweet and salty snack. I have a thing for them if you haven’t noticed. My kids caught a nasty virus this past week which meant lots of snuggling and not a lot of cooking.

Lutefisk which is a dried and salted fish that gets gelatinous in texture. Can’t say I could ever be convinced to try that one. But
