Pecan Pie Shortbread Cookie Bars

These cookie bars are AMAZING! I don’t love pecan pie because I am not a huge fan of the 1-inch thick layer of goopy sugar but I do love the candied pecans on the top and the flaky crust on the bottom. So I went to work trying to figure out how I could haveContinue reading “Pecan Pie Shortbread Cookie Bars”

Andes Chocolate Cookies

I had the vision of aContinue reading “Andes Chocolate Cookies”

Award-Winning Peanut Butter Delights

This recipe was made by accident. So here is the story… My ma and I needed to make cookies for some work event she had so we landed on peanut butter drop cookies with the kiss on top. We started by following the directions on the back of the Hershey’s Kiss bag… but didn’t actuallyContinue reading “Award-Winning Peanut Butter Delights”

Pumpkin Cakes

This was an impromptu Halloween bake. I received a baking book from my nana, called All Things Baking. It was published in 1933 and is really aesthetically pleasing with old pictures and kind of sexist in the way it talks about women needing to know how to be in the kitchen. But I was superContinue reading “Pumpkin Cakes”

Lemonade Iced Tea

My family was going through Gold Peak Lemonade Iced Tea like it was no one’s business. The plastic bottle is SO wasteful, it drives me nuts.

Chai on National Chai Day!

It has been about 200 degrees here in southern California so getting into the fall spirit has been kind of hard.

I would go all the time ifContinue reading “Chai on National Chai Day!”

Tatum’s Delicious Oatmeal

Today I come to you with a feature recipe from my little sister, Tatum. There was a solid 4 years where I literally ate oatmeal EVERYDAY. I LOVE oatmeal. It got weird.

Fruity Pebble Rice Krispie Treats

Oh man these guys are DELICIOUS. So sweet, but so delicious. My husband just kept chewing and pointing at them going, “those… those… those…”. I think that means they are good?

Fried Bread

Alright this is the easiest thing ever but it is the best thing to enjoy in the morning alongside eggs and coffee. I love me some toast but this elevates toast to another level. Believe me and give it a try. You have to have fresh-ish bread for this to be the best possible thing.Continue reading “Fried Bread”
