Graham Cracker Crack?!


Today’s recipe is a mystery.  It has been popular on Pinterest for ages under an assortment of names…Crack, Christmas Crack, Graham Toffee Bars, etc. etc.   The recipe was shared on Good Morning America during the holiday season and went viral.  Versions of this recipe are all over blogs so I have no idea who…

I cannot really take much credit for today’s amazingly sweet and delicious recipe.  First I need to thank Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for being available so readily and mostly the Youtube site, My Cupcake Addiction.  If you are looking for videos showing you how to create amazing cakes or looking for ideas this is the…

Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope everyone had the opportunity to connect with family or friends sometime this weekend and had a chance to say a little thank you for all the blessings we take for granted everyday.  Things like clean water at the turn of a tap, an abundance of food at every corner and people who support and care about…

Ice Cream Cake – Happy 21st Birthday Robert


Why does time move so much faster the older you are.  I heard a theory once that time moves slower for you the younger you are as you have the majority of your life ahead of you.  Once you hit your mature years time moves quicker as you have the majority of your life behind…

Candied Nuts with Cinnamon


So simple, so tasty and so easy.  These are delicious and make a great holiday nibble.  I’m not sure the nuts still qualify as a ‘heart healthy’ snack after being coated in a combination of brown and white sugar but it’s worth a try.  Use whatever combination of nuts you enjoy most.  I used 2…

Sweet and Easy Toffee


Today’s offering is Toffee.  Sweet, buttery and sprinkled with toasted nuts. Have you ever had a McIntosh Toffee Bar? This recipe brings back memories of summer days at the cottage. After a trip to McMurray’s store for pixie sticks and McIntosh toffee I’d come back to our rented cottage and whack the package of McIntosh…

Gluten Free Chocolate Bites


Tonight’s blog is for Jolene, one of my biggest supporters!  Jolene made a request for some gluten-free recipes.  I suggested the coconut macaroons I made a little while ago but alas she is tired of that old standby.  The other go-to option is Rice Krispie squares but they have gluten in them.  Why are they…

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars


Hmmm, I seem to be on a bit of a peanut butter chocolate bend these last few posts.  So I will make sure to switch it up for the next one.  These 3 layer bars are definitely not for the faint of heart as it is a combination of all things sweet.  Although upon sampling…

Today’s offering is simple, sweet and superb.  Oh, and very chocolatey.  Dark, decadent and delicious! Need I say more….with just 1/4 cup of flour in the batter they are mostly dark, delicious chocolate, a little sugar, a couple of eggs, some vanilla and a little more chocolate.  Not much more in the way of ingredients….
