March 17th celebrates the traditional date of death of Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. St. Patrick’s Day also happens to be celebrated in more countries than any other national festival! Crazy, right?! But for most people, it’s just an excuse to drink green beer, dress like a leprechaun, and eat traditional Irish grub! And an excuse for me to make cute kitschy desserts too! This year, I’m not waiting around to find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow…I’m making my own pot of gold with these St. Patrick’s Day Golden Coin Cookies!
These chocolate worm whoopie pies are delicious and add a fun and creepy element to an otherwise normal dessert. Check out the recipe below!
I have an obsession with whoopie pies. Macarons were in the spotlight for awhile there, but I’m definitely team whoopie pie. Anyone else with me? They are simple to make and filled with cream or frosting. (What’s not to love about that?) Plus, you can transform them into a fun Halloween themed dessert in a pinch too! These chocolate worm whoopie pies are delicious and add a fun and creepy element to an otherwise normal dessert…and you guys know I’m all about that!
They appeal to both kiddo’s and adults alike and, in my opinion, desserts are soooo much better when they are infested with worms! 😉
This chocolate chip cookie dough fudge recipe is so easy to make and deeeeeelicious! It would make a perfect gift too, but once you try it, I have a feeling you’ll want to keep it all to yourself!
On my current quest to be healthier (and because my boyfriend also happens to be super fit and works in the sports industry) I’m attempting to wake up early to work out. I honestly have no idea what I’m thinking, because I am anti early mornings, but my schedule has been so crazy busy lately and I feel like the only way I can fit them into my schedule is to actually wake up early to do it. Today was day one and I’m going to say it was not a complete success, but not a complete failure either. I still woke up earlier than normal, but not early enough to fit in a full and complete workout. So I did a core workout instead. Eh, can’t win them all. I will say that I did feel good after, soooooo I’m going to consider that a bonus. But, it’s FRIDAY and I’m posting this ahhhhh-mazing recipe for chocolate chip cookie dough fudge, so today is a good day regardless. This is why I need to workout guys…I call it balance.
I’d do just about anything for dessert and if that means I need to start waking up earlier so that I can eat this fudge, I’ll do it.
I’m sure most of you have heard about Voodoo dolls or have seen them in movies. They’re usually associated with witch doctors, black magic, and, of course, those pins! Voodoo dolls can be used for all types of things, both positive and negative, but since it is Halloween, after all, I’m making mine a little more spooky and menacing…although they are still pretty darn cute, right? These Voodoo doll Halloween cookies are really easy to make and decorate, and add a fun Halloween touch to your parties or gatherings! Do you dare to give them a try?

There’s nothing that I love more than winding down at the end of the night with my favorite warm coffee in hand and a sweet little snack to go with it. (Not sure if that’s just a sign of me getting old or if I’m just embracing the colder weather and getting cozy over here, but I’m going with the latter). And I know I’m not alone! My family and friends are the same way. So, this year, I’m going to be prepped and ready for all of those upcoming holiday house guests with my barista skills! Ha, just kidding. I’m stocking my fridge with the International Delight® One Touch Latte’™! The can makes it so easy to whip up a barista style latte for your guests without having any fancy equipment or any coffee house knowledge, which I love! And who doesn’t love pumpkin everything in the fall and cooler weather months? I’m sharing a recipe for these white chocolate pumpkin cookies that are a cinch to make, look much fancier than they actually are, pair perfectly with your lattes, and did I mention that they are delicious?!
Today is national cookie day! I hope you guys have already started celebrating with cookies for breakfast.
I definitely think December is a fitting month for this foodie holiday, with all of the cookie exchange parties and hot cocoa filling mugs this time of year.
I’m not sure if you guys are like me, but I pine away over gorgeous and pristinely decorated cookies on pinterest and have high hopes and big plans of doing the same, but it never seems to work out for me. First off, I always give myself way too much cookie decorating credit, which I learn pretty quickly each time I try. Plus, holiday cookies can take a ton of time and sometimes, depending on my schedule and my memory, I have to stop and pick up store bought (gasp!) cookies on the way to a get together if I forget. Don’t act like you haven’t either.
If you guys are the same way, today’s post is going to solve all of your cookie konundrums! I’m sharing a recipe for chocolate dipped pizzelle cookies that are uber delish and a cinch to make! Plus, they are gorgeous!!!
You’ll definitely impress the other cookie guests in attendance when you show up with a batch of these beauties!
If you’ve been following along for a bit, you’ll know that I’ve started a new series on the blog titled “Sweet Stops”, a monthly trip to a local sweets/treats/heavenly place here in Utah, where I share my favorites with you guys.
Today marks stop number 2! (Catch my first trip here).
If you’ve been to Salt Lake City before, you may have heard rummblings of a local cookie joint that’s too good to pass up. A retro throwback to pin-up’s of the past (and a sassy one at that!) Ruby Snap packs the flavor, charm, and spunk of those gals you admire from across the room and secretly wish they were your new best friend, but in cookie form, of course.
Have you guys ever tried watercoloring?
I’ve seen it all over the web and I got a little intrigued. It can’t be that hard, right?
So what did I do to test out this new technique….? I tried to decorate sugar cookies, of course! (Don’t ask me why I started there.)
