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 […]

June 25, 2013

Germany’s climate is killing me… even though I technically ‘lived’ in Germany last year, I spent the summer in Upstate NY with my family while my Husband was deployed.

Black Bottom Coconut Bars

May 6, 2013

My Grandmother used to make these coconut tarts when I was growing up. They were my favorite thing that she would make. I’m still surprised that a coconut tart really appealed to me that much as a kid. I find that a lot of kids don’t like coconut. Heck, even a good number of adults. […]

The first variation that come sto my mind whenever I think of brownies is peanut butter. It’s the perfect partner for chocolate. Plus there are […]

Pumpkin Pie Rice Krispie Treats

February 15, 2013

This recipe is perfect to use up any leftover canned pumpkin puree, which is something I am always looking to do that. Well, that and rice krispies. I feel like I always have a half box of rice krispies hanging around that I used for a recipe and I can never figure out what to […]

Caramel Coconut Cluster Bars (Homemade Samoa Bars)

February 5, 2013

These… these were fabulous. I’m a little bias though- Samoas are my absolute favorite girl scout cookie. I never could jump on the whole thin mint bandwagon. The Caramel Coconut Cluster Bars were a dream come true to me. This recipe comes from one of my new recipe books- “Baked: Our 10 Favorite Ingredients” by Matt Lewis […]
