I’m gonna have to make today’s post short and sweet. My brother is here visiting before he goes back to the States tomorrow. He has been stationed in Germany with the Army, just as we have been, for the last 2 years. He finished his contract and will be leaving to go home now. The […]

Homemade Reeses Peanut Butter Cups

May 29, 2013

Reeses were probably one of my favorite candies growing up. It’s a pretty good toss up between Reeses and Snickers. I could go either way.

No Bake Chocolate Cheesecake Truffles

July 6, 2012

I’ve made a handful of no bake truffles/cookies in the past and they never disappoint. Between the Oreo Cheesecake Truffles to the infamous Buckeyes, I just love no bakes! Even the Cookie Dough Truffles had me at hello. Well, these Chocolate Cheesecake Truffles put me under the same spell. I HAD to make them. Anything “no […]
