Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever

Pin It

For me, the perfect chocolate chip cookie is not too thick, but not too thin, not too hard and crunchy, not too dry but not too greasy, but not too soft and cakey. Most importantly, it has to be easy enough to make with the ingredients in my kitchen and not be overly complicated. To me, there are the BEST chocolate chip cookies EVER and I hope they become your go-to favorite chocolate chip cookie too!

Happy Birthday To Me

Pin It

So, today is my birthday. Somehow the excitement of birthdays has dissipated over the years, and I find myself reminiscing over the "good ol' days"; the days when I didn't have a care in the world, when I could eat as much dessert as I wanted without gaining a pound. Yet, the one thing that hasn't changed after all these years, that still makes me as giddy with excitement as I was when I was two is, well you guessed it... BIRTHDAY CAKE! To this day, nothing makes me happier than shoveling spoonfuls of cake and frsoting into my face. I guess some things never change ;)



Here I am on my second birthday, blowing out the candles with a mouth covered in frosting.

Happy Birthday To Me!

Caramel Chew Apple Pops

Pin It

After making my Toothpick Engraved Chocolate Bar Chalkboards, I knew the next project on my list would be to create the traditional approach for showing your favorite teacher how much they are appreciated. These little apples on a stick are made out of caramel chew candies enrobed in candy coating with an apple flavored fruit chew leaf, creating a caramel apple flavored treat any teacher will love.

Perfect for Father's Day or a 21st Birthday, these beer mug pops are so simple to make, using only two ingredients; marshmallows and chocolate. And although they are not alcoholic, they are still just as satisfying. After making my Green Beer Pops for St. Patrick's Day, I couldn't resist making a classic frosty mug o' beer.

Easy Homemade Biscuit Donuts

Pin It

"National Donut Day is on the first Friday of June each year. It was created by the Salvation Army in 1938 to help the needy during the Great Depression, and to honor the women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I. The holiday celebrates the doughnut (a.k.a "donut") — an edible, torus-shaped piece of dough which is deep-fried and sweetened."
