Chocolate Orange Overnight Oats (Vegan-Friendly!) #Choctoberfest

I have to admit, that I’m usually not an overnight oats or oatmeal person. But if it’s chocolate-flavored, I’m on board! Plus, I love the combination of chocolate and orange, as is evident by all the other chocolate and orange flavored recipes on this blog, including Orange Chocolate Chip Bread, Chocolate Orange Cookies, and Mini […]

S’mores Ice Cream #Choctoberfest

I have been itching to use my ice cream maker more often. I have the KitchenAid attachment, but it is usually stored in my chest freezer, which is out in my storage shed. You know how it is: out of sight, out of mind. But the other day, we were driving home from running errands […]

Chocolate Toast Crunch Cheesecake Bars #Choctoberfest

Did you know that Cinnamon Toast Crunch comes in a chocolate variety? I didn’t until a few months ago. Man, is that stuff addicting! When I was brainstorming ideas for #Choctoberfest this year, I knew I wanted to make some kind of cheesecake bar. So I thought… how about using Chocolate Toast Crunch in place […]

White Chocolate Wine Truffles

This past weekend, my sister Jess came to town, and we decided to go to a wine festival. She usually works at festivals, so it was nice that she was on the other side for once to actually get to taste some wine! One of the wineries there was Horton Vineyards, which makes a wine […]

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, so today I have a recipe and giveaway for you that is all about mom! My mom is the “cookie lady.” I used to say that she is known for her Christmas cookies, but that makes it sound like she only bakes cookies in December. Her freezer ALWAYS […]

Honey Maple Chocolate Granola

Listen y’all… I have a confession to make. I’ve never made homemade granola before. I feel like that is a good blogger sin. I mean, granola is SO EASY to make at home. And I truly do love it as a quick snack or even breakfast cereal replacement. But I’ve always just picked up a […]
