Bacon Toffee Potato Chip Cookies

I spent the entire day cooking last Saturday.  Homemade salted caramels, No-Bake Biscoff Balls, peanut butter cup and truffle cookies and gluten-free lemon bars are all piled in abundance in my kitchen.  Even after a family Christmas party and making a plate for my husband to take to work at the police department, there’s still…

Friday Favorites–Thanksgiving

I’m sure I say this every year, but I can’t believe it’s nearly Thanksgiving.  Halloween just happened.  We won’t even get in a deep breath and it will be Christmas.  I love this time of the year, but this ride goes a little too fast sometimes. With the time frame allotted to it so short,…

Friday Favorites–Copycat Treats

This week’s selections were inspired by my attempt at something I saw on…wait for it…Pinterest.  I just couldn’t believe you could mix two things together, coat it in chocolate and come out on the other side with a Butterfinger, so I had to try it. There are many variations of this recipe out there, but…

Friday Favorites–Cookies

I decided since next week contains both Mother’s Day and my birthday that I would feature my favorite dessert, and possibly food, on the planet – COOKIES!  If it were possible to survive on cookie dough with the occasional baked cookie thrown in for texture variation, I’d do it. These Sugar Cookie Truffles from Cookies…

Cow Pie Cookies

I am well aware of what a horrible mental image that conjures up, but these were named by a fifteen-year-old boy and that’s the kind of thing he finds hilarious.  Frankly, I couldn’t argue with him – that’s exactly what they look like.  Fortunately, they’re tasty enough to make up for it. I didn’t figure…
