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!

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 […]

Golden Chocolate Blossom Cookies #Choctoberfest

Do not adjust your screen color… those Hershey kisses really are orange. They are the “caramel pretzel” variety.

Because these kisses are caramel instead of […]

Spiced Caramel Chocolate Bark #Choctoberfest

Summer weather seemed to drag on forever this year, but it is finally fall. That took forever, didn’t it? I don’t know about you, but was over the super hot and humid days, so I’m glad we’re now in the 50s and 60s. (Though I will say… it can stay in this temperature range. I […]

I work at Benigna’s Creek Winery and we have a wine and truffles event in February. It’s always really special to make homemade candies. The truffle recipe we use, however, is very labor intensive. I saw a truffle recipe on Pioneer Woman that looked a lot easier, so I decided to try a version for […]
