I have this bag of baking supplies that I hide out of sight in the hall coat closet. My logic is questionable since I (1) hid it, and (2) it’s been discovered. It contains everything from Peanut M&M’s to Hershey’s Kisses to Ferrero Rocher, plus assorted other essentials like chocolate chips, shredded coconut, marshmallows, and Heath toffee bits.Continue reading »
May 28th is my darling Shelby’s birthday. Twenty-four years ago today I became a mom. THE most important job title I will ever hold.
Last year on this day I made her a Chocolate Truffle Torte, with the intention of sharing it with you that evening. Instead, we soaked in every ounce of our most amazing daughter and this recipe slowly moved into the unpublished archives.Continue reading »

I struggled with what to call these heavenly bars. I kicked around a few ideas. Pretzel Toffee Bars. Chocolate Coconut Layered Love Bars. Magic Bars. Seven Layer Bars. Toothachers Met Their Match Bars. Truth be told…they are a casserole with a little bit of this and a little bit of that. A dessert casserole. I’m not sure anyone would click on a recipe called dessert casserole.Continue reading »

I call these Adventures in Chocolate. This go around I chose my friend & co-worker Jennica. She actually squealed with excitment and headed straight to my Adventures in Chocolate Pinterest Board where she selected this fabulous Ferrero Rocher Cake recipe by Mom’s Dish.Continue reading »

My Dark Chocolate Rum Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Buttercream recipe was inspired by the most popular dessert on this year’s Halloween Office Party Buffet. There sat Mark’s picture perfect rum cake, whose aroma alone was so intoxicating co-workers began to stalk the break room pre-party (secretly wondering if they could manage to sneak a piece without getting caught). There’s something sensual about the combination of rum and butter and sugar.Continue reading »
It has happened. The coffee-house shift from Pumpkin Spice Lattes to Peppermint Mocha Lattes. Today in honor of Peppermint Mocha Latte Day my plan was to recreate this phenomenon at home. That was before I found a bazillion other versions of Starbuck’s copycat recipe for that warm minty frothy beverage we all love. Hmmm…how about Peppermint Mocha Latte Truffles instead. Bingo.Continue reading »
