Sweet Treats

Homemade Pie Crust and Pi Day Fun

We got Hailey for the weekend after work on Friday and after some celebrating at school she was all excited for Pi Day on March 14th! She requested I make some pie for the ‘holiday’. Keep in mind, this request is coming from a girl who typically won’t eat pie, not the good fruit pies anyway! It’s the only way I can truly tell she’s not directly related to me 🙂 Since I wanted to make something I knew she would eat and love I decided on Continue reading


The Cake to your Coffee

Surprisingly, today was my first time making coffee cake. I remember this dessert sitting on the stove from time to time at my parents house growing up and oddly enough can picture it perfectly with the main lights turned off and just the stove light left on; it’s funny how some (random) memories stick around. I was very lucky growing up in a beautiful home where my parents always cooked delicious meals and baked wonderful desserts! Quick side story? Continue reading

Mini S’more Cups

I was first introduced to these delicious treats by my Grandma and they were certainly added to my list of many great recipes from her! The s’more cups are simple to make and the perfect dessert to take to picnics, cookouts and other get togethers. They are bite size which makes them easy to grab at a party and too easy to grab every time you walk by them at home 🙂 I like to make these in the Winter too when Continue reading

Paleo Inspired Chocolate Brownies

I don’t follow the Paleo diet, but a friend of mine at work shared this recipe with me and she makes delicious desserts so I trusted it was a good idea to give it a whirl! Good idea indeed, because these are yummy little treats! If you’re not familiar with Paleo, it puts focus on eating lean meats, fish, vegetables, fruit, and excluding dairy/grain products and processed food. So these brownies have no flour, no refined sugar; instead, Continue reading

Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am so excited to share this recipe! First of all, who doesn’t love red velvet anything? Cake, cupcakes, cookies…it’s all delicious! I found this recipe on Pinterest and it took me a while to finally try it out; It will not take me nearly as long to make a second batch! In fact, I think I’ll make them again in a few short weeks for Valentine’s Day! Like the pink hot cocoa, these are Continue reading

Cream Cheese Cut out Cookies

Let me say a couple things first…this recipe makes A LOT of cookies! I honestly can’t even tell you how many dozen, but depending on the cookie cutters being used it can be several. Second thing, I’m showing them here as Christmas cookies, but of course you can use this recipe for any holiday or occassion by simply using a corresponding cookie cutter. Okay, now we can get started 🙂 Continue reading

Candy Cane Milkshake

Just in time for Christmas, this milkshake is scrumptious…if you love peppermint like I do! Now, I’m sure you could “cheat” and make this milkshake with simply peppermint ice cream and milk, but I’m going to stick with the theory that this way tastes just a little better! It also made some fun memories with my step daughter! Continue reading
