Copycat Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

You know how sometimes you set out to make something, you tediously follow the directions, and the finished product is just as the recipe described? Yeah, that’s not how I ended up with these Copycat Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups but nobody was complaining.

You see, I set out to make these Peanut Butter Squares from Tastes of Lizzy T’s. I’m sure they’re really delicious but, let me assure you, so’s my variation. (more…)

Stitch Fix Review – August 2016

The August Stitch Fix Review video was done during a really bad storm so I apologize if I seem hurried (although, let’s be honest, it’s not like I’m producing a major motion picture here anyway). It’s me, in my living room, with my phone. Not going to be great quality, regardless of the weather 🙂

Stitch Fix Unboxing – August 2016

Here’s my August 2016 Stitch Fix Unboxing (only a few weeks late). Hope you can hear me over the sounds of a 6 year old giving play-by-play of her Minecraft game. 🙂

Chicken Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches

Some days you have grand goals. Last Sunday was not one of those days. Don’t get me wrong, we got a lot done around the house (being home on a Sunday is rare, we have to take advantage) but my biggest goal was to cook dinner. We’d eaten out so. very. much. the week before and I was over it. I’d had some chicken thawed in the fridge that needed to be used and I didn’t want to make anything labor-intensive so these chicken philly cheesesteak sandwiches fit the bill.

I found this recipe on Pinterest and it looked promising. I didn’t, however, have all of (more…)

My Favorite Sloppy Joe Recipe

Who doesn’t like a good sloppy joe? They’re simple to make and are typically a big hit with everybody at the table. If you eat sloppy joe’s out of a can, please don’t eat that ever, ever again. This recipe is so incredibly easy to make and 10x’s better than the can. Trust me, these sloppy joe’s won’t leave you disappointed.

Cozy Coupe Batmobile

I was starting to think *sigh* our son would have to settle for a boring Cozy Coupe (oh, the horror!). Thank goodness that won’t be the case. Last week the hubby did a few projects around the house, one of which was converting our traditional Cozy Coupe into a Batmobile. It doesn’t get much cuter than seeing a 1-year old riding around in a Batmobile, folks.

Easy Homemade Marinara

You know how people always say homemade is better than store-bought? I wish this weren’t true but it really is. Do we always make fresh homemade spaghetti sauce? Um, no. But, when we have a few extra minutes, this homemade marinara is definitely worth the effort. And, added bonus when we have our own fresh basil to use!

Please believe me when I say this marinara can be made by anyone, easily. From start to finish, it’ll take you (more…)

Snickers Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Frosting

Last week I made some chocolate cupcakes with Oreo buttercream frosting and after making those, the candy-cupcake wheels were churning in my brain. I’ve done Reese’s cupcakes and they’re delicious, of course, but I wanted to try something new. I finally settled on Snickers. I’m not a big fan of plain caramel but add some salt to it and I’m all over it! Alas, Snickers Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Frosting were born!

I used chocolate cupcakes for this because, well, duh, this is just a chocolate kinda recipe. If I do a special frosting, (more…)

Can’t Go Wrong Pasta Salad

You know that side dish you always make because it’s just so dang delicious and it makes too much for you to eat by yourself? Well, this pasta salad is that dish for me. I got this recipe from a friend years ago and it’s my go-to pasta salad. My family and friends probably get tired of me bringing this pasta salad to everything but I just can’t resist.

The best part about this pasta salad is you can customize it with any veggies you like. Personally, I (more…)

Quick Mango Salsa

Mango margarita? Yes, please! Mango salsa? Can’t get enough of it! While I enjoy mangos, I’ve never attempted to cut one, much less made anything with a mango. They’re odd shaped, a weird color, and I had no clue what was in the middle. Today, however, I went out on a limb. I got a little crazy and…drumroll please…cut a mango. Nuts, right?!
