Soft Pretzel Bread Pudding with Chocolate

I made these especially for you because I know about your salty-sweet addiction.  I know you can never decide between the salty pretzel and the sweet pretzel with chocolate drizzle at the mall, and so you buy both.  I’m just like you. This bread pudding is so good.  So so so good.  I’m not even a bread [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Dinner For Two: BLT with Avocado Mayo

Creamy-BLT-wrap-1

Our weekends have been hectic lately.  We just crossed the one-year mark of owning a house, and suddenly every sentence starts with “I can’t believe we’ve lived here for a year and we haven’t__________.”  Your answer choices are:  planted trees, landscaped the front yard, or established a lawn that has more grass than bare dirt.

Greek Yogurt Truffles

Yogurt-Truffles-4

I have long dreamt of yogurt truffles. Truffles are my favorite dessert to sneak when no one’s looking.  I slyly pop one on my tongue and it dissolves into bliss. My love affair with truffles was getting a bit obsessive. The heavy cream containers in the trash were judging me.  I knew there had to [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Rhubarb Moonshine Smash

Rhubarb-Moonshine-Smash-1

Is it okay if we drink a little moonshine and forget our troubles? Granted, my only ‘troubles’ are the weather went from snow to 90-degrees too quickly, and the fact that weekends only last 2 days.  But, troubles are troubles, and moonshine soothes all. Is there a pink drink that doesn’t brighten your day? A [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Frozen Mocha Brownie Bites

Frozen-Mocha-Brownie-Bites-5

First, promise me something:  Promise me that you will not hide these frozen mocha brownie bites from your husband.  Promise me that you won’t wrap them individually in plastic wrap and store them inside a bag of frozen asparagus in the back of the freezer.  Because that would be selfish.  And also, there’s a chance [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Strawberry Pretzel Parfaits

Strawberry-Pretzel-Parfait-2

This dish comes to you by way of my craving for something salty and sweet and my Southern heart, of course.  If you’ve never had strawberry pretzel salad in all of its Cool Whip glory, you haven’t lived.  Befriend a blue-haired lady at Church, offer to mow her lawn and she’ll make you a strawberry [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Earl Grey Tea Latte

Earl-Grey-Latte-2

Remember that Earl Grey tea latte? I can’t stop thinking about it either.  These tea lattes went from a once-a-week treat to a daily fix.  Times two.  I make 2 lattes some mornings.  I tell myself I’ll have just one and then switch back to green tea.  But, before I know it, my milk is [ Click to continue Reading! ]
