No Bake PB Cup Bars

It’s been 4 months since my last food blog.  (Catholic confession intro style) I love food.  Love taking pics of it.  Love writing about it.  Love sharing recipes with fellow food obsessed friends trying to enjoy our favorite things with minimal atherosclerotic effect.

Metal Roofs & Cinnamon Roll French Toast

March 22. I woke up at four this morning after dreaming that all of our appliances had been delivered and were miniature in size, but Big John insisted that we didn’t have time to return them and reorder them.  A nightmare, actually.

Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Pretzel Bark

So I forgot to put the first layer of chocolate down.  I suffer from night time dementia induced by my kids. Caramel.  Who doesn’t like caramel?  True question…I want to know…how in the world could you NOT like caramel?  It’s sugar + heat.  The stuff addiction is made of. Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips are my […]

COMPLETEly Awesome Brownies

These brownies are not healthy.  But they’re not the unhealthiest either.  After a rough week, something about fudgy chocolate, homemade salted caramel sauce, and fresh whipped cream sounded real, real good. And I would say: “not to toot my own horn,” right here…but come on, I made a blog for the sole purpose of cooking […]
