Crock Pot Candy

So, I was browsing through my mom’s recipe cards and saw this doozy. Candy in the crock?  Intrigued, I was.   I mean, using my crock pot for more than stew or pulled pork?  Interesting. I honestly I don’t remember my mother ever making candy in the slow cooker, but...

Gingerbread Cupcakes with White Chocolate Pudding Frosting

So this frosting, you guys. It’s sort of perfect.   It’s way different from my usual kill-me-now frosting.  So if you’re looking for a really stable buttercream, this isn’t for you. But if you want something a little lighter (not necessarily healthier) you’re barking up the right tree.   It’s...

Brown Sugar Toffee Cheesecake Bars

I think I have said this before here, but cheesecake is my most favorite thing. Well, I mean, my most favorite dessert. Ok, fine, my most favorite thing.   Anyway, since making cheesecake ISN’T my most favorite, I have had to simplify the process. Survival of the fittest and all...

Hot Chocolate Frosting

Well, it’s officially cold up here in the Northeast. And apparently winter doesn’t officially start until like December 21st or something, which coincidentally marks the end of the world… at least according to the Mayans…who I am frankly quite scared of.  I mean, they have been right a lot, I’ve...

Peanut Butter Cup Granola

You know what I kind of hate? Those “scan your own” grocery aisles. As if shopping wasn’t enough work, now I have to scan my own scallions as well?   And not for nothing, the fact that I have this blog on the internet is something of a miracle in...
