Nutella Swirled Banana Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

July 26, 2013

It’s almost time. I can count on one hand the number of days I have left @ the Sweet Spot. I’ll soon be moving and un-veiling my new location! Ohhhhh, the bittersweet excitement… I am so excited and anxious that I decided to makes some stellar cupcakes. So stellar that they hit the cupcake right out […]

Homemade Almond Butter

July 19, 2013

Almond butter and I really aren’t the best of friends. I find it the most difficult to make out of all the nut butters and I also don’t particularly like its taste. I find it a bit bland and bitter. My daughter doesn’t like it either unfortunately- her loyalty lies with peanut butter and Nutella […]

Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter

July 9, 2013

My daughter is a 100% hardcore, chocolate addict. It’s a hard truth for me. After all, I’m the reason she goes insane if anybody even mentions the word ‘chocolate‘. For that matter she does the same thing with the words ‘cookie‘, ‘cake‘, or ‘gummi‘. Actually, you can thank Germany for that last one. For some […]

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 […]

Good Morning Sunshine Bars

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. I had a beautiful Summer full of lots of warm weather and sunshine. Well, was I in for a surprise this Summer when I actually decided […]

How to Make Almond Milk

June 19, 2013

Not too long ago I came into possession of a Vitamix. For months I went back and forth as to whether it was worth the expense or not, whether I would actually use it or not, or whether to bring it up to my Husband or not… haha I fully expected to get shot down by […]

Cranberry Cherry Chicken Wrap

June 14, 2013

Ohhhh, cranberry cherry chicken wrap… where have you been all my life? I’ve always been a fan of those savory-sweet, fruit-nut, type salads. Case and point- Broccoli Salad. Love it. But this chicken wrap is a whole different beast. Thinly sliced seasoned chicken breast. Chopped sun-dried tomatoes. Dried cranberries and cherries. Chopped, toasted pecans. A […]

Chocolate Chip Turtle Cookies

June 13, 2013

I hate when I do this. I made these cookies forever ago, took a picture, put them in my blogging folder, and forgot about them. So frustrating! Like I think I’ve been sitting on this recipe for 6 months now. Isn’t that terrible? I liked them though so I didn’t want to just throw out […]
