Let’s celebrate St. Patrick’s Day a little early this year with these chocolate chip menthe cake pops. Nothing says “let’s party” like a little alcohol. Of course, you can leave out the creme de menthe and substitute it with some peppermint extract. I added a healthy dose of Creme De Menthe in these cake pops along with a healthy dose of milk chocolate chips.
I wish I had some cute little shamrock sprinkles, but I guess I had to make due with what I had. I think I worked it pretty well. Yes, I’m once again patting myself on the… Continue reading
Have you ever made a recipe just because someone you love and miss used to make it? That’s what happened today. My aunt had been posting pictures of my grandmother who has been gone 2 years and 3 months. Before I knew it, I was overcome with sadness. So, as usual, I ran to the kitchen and started making a recipe that reminded me of my childhood with her. I made it to the best of my memory.
My grandmother was the ultimate grandmother. She didn’t shower me with gifts, but she made me feel special. I always spent the… Continue reading
Lately, I’ve had bananas foster on the brain. Not that I’ve made it yet, but I will. Eventually. Instead, I made banana bread with a dash of rum. Can I just say.. AHHmazing!

What in the world is snow ice cream? Well, one day in my food network escapades, before Paula Deen was banished, I watched her make snow ice cream. How does one come up with snow in Georgia? This woman is amazing. She comes up with recipes for things that don’t exist in Georgia. Anyway, snow ice cream is a quick kind of ice cream made from snow. Simple, right!
This is the perfect recipe to do with your kids. They’ll be amazed by it and tell all their friends.
Here is the finished product! If you love the taste of… Continue reading
I thought I was still feeling warm and cozy from just celebrating Valentine’s Day with my husband. Turns out, I think it may have been the dozen of Bailey’s coffee truffles I ingested the day after. Maybe it was a combination. Either way, these guys aren’t for the young’uns. So sneak ‘em out after bedtime!
These are the cat’s meow. The bee’s knees. The freaking best. If liqueur naturally tasted this wonderful, I would be in sooo much trouble. But seriously, my husband is hammering these down like there is no tomorrow.
There’s a reason I found that all my… Continue reading
