After I saw this acorn treat idea on the website, The Fountain Avenue Kitchen, I decided my children must make them for their teachers as a treat for the upcoming Thanksgiving break.
Sending the leftover Halloween candy into the office to get rid of it doesn't work. So, I try to repackage it... into Cupcakes, Brownies and these Rice Krispies Treats.
I love Creme Brulee. This pumpkin creme brulee recipe is perfect for fall because that carmelized sugar yumminess on top is just right with spiced pumpkin.
Apples, caramel sauce, cheesecake... what could be better??
banana split-styled desserts. But they're just sooooo good!
This lemon curd is one of my favorite things. I love it. It's awesome with scones, in pies, as a filling in cakes and cupcakes, and as I recently discovered, in icing!
These cheesecake-brownie bars are really chocolatey, really rich, and really good!
Is anyone in your house on Santa's Naughty List? Try these (very easy) coal candies to let them know Santa's not entirely pleased this year.
Caramel sauce is both easier and harder than I thought it would be... but once you get it, it's a quick and tasty gift for giving (and eating).
Vanilla Cheesecake with Chocolate Crust and Chocolate Ganache Topping.
With two six-year-olds in this house, we have entirely too much Halloween candy left over long after the holiday. Enjoy these brownies to get rid of your extras, too.
In the world of pie, I think tart cherry pie reigns supreme. But that's probably because my Grandma and I made cherry pie when I was little.
All the awesomeness of pie, but none of the need for forks. "Hand Pie" - Strawberry-Rhubarb version. Yummmm!
These easy candies make a cute little treat for any graduate - Preschool graduates included.
I got a recipe similar to this from my aunt in a little book she put together for me for my wedding. I altered it a bit to make it a smaller batch, but I love the texture and flavor of these peanut butter cups.
Peanut Butter and Chocolate... like a match made in Heaven (or the Reece's factory - either way).
I love, love this sauce on top of homemade vanilla ice cream. The best part about it is how easy it is to make. It only takes about 15-20 minutes start to finish!
You can make this crisp with any fruit. I've done it with cherries, apples and a combination of strawberries and rhubarb. It's very versatile.
The first time I tried these yummy treats at a meeting, I demanded the recipe. Ever since, I've been in love!
Seriously, start to finish, it took me less than an hour to do all three of these! (Well, except for baking the crusts.)
March 14 is known as "Pi" Day.
And of course Pie is much more fun than Pi, so... Here's a pie for pi(e) day! Lemon Cream Pie.
My grandmother gave me this recipe for Chocolate Caramel Cookie bars about 5 years ago, when, after the first bite of them, I realized that I could not live without making them again.
Creme Brulee is my favorite "fancy" dessert. Even though, really, there's not much too fancy about it, and it's not all that hard to make!
This French Silk Pie recipe is adapted from one I found in an old church cookbook. (Don't all of the best recipes come from an old church cookbook?)
These peanut butter and chocolate treats are two of my sisters' favorite holiday treats. And I call them healthy because they have protein (peanut butter) and Special K cereal.
These treats are very easy to make, even when the kids are involved.
These are my favorites, but until this year, I can honestly say I've never made them myself. They're SO easy.
I'm not really sure why, but my husband really loves peppermint bark. And given how easy it is to make... I'm okay with that.
These brownies ARE holiday baking to me. Though I do make them at other times of the year, they are something my Mom made at the holidays, and I love, love, love them.
