Chocolate Covered Bananas with Hazelnuts

Chocolate Covered Bananas with Hazelnuts

I think I may watch too much television. But in my defense, I don’t watch it every hour of the day…instead I flip on a show or two before bed (almost always online). But even if that wasn’t the case, and I actually just zonked out in front of the TV every day, who cares? It’s...
Cocoa Roasted Chicken

Cocoa Roasted Chicken

The other day I randomly asked my dad to pick up a whole chicken from the market. I honestly can’t even remember the last night I’ve roasted an entire chicken (except for holidays). So yeah, it’s a pretty rare request. I guess I wanted to plop a roasted bird down onto the table and get...
St. Patrick's Day Krispie Treats

St. Patrick’s Day Krispie Treats

Holy crap, is St. Patty’s Day this weekend? Geez 2013 is going by fast. So today’s post is short and sweet (pun intended). Once again I’m giving the classic rice krispie treat an update. What can I say, I just love marshmallow treats. They’re fun, quick to make, and everyone loves them, so why not?...
Sun-dried Tomato Chocolate Bark

Sun-dried Tomato Chocolate Bark

I guess I’m being lazy this week, cause Monday’s recipe only had two ingredients too. Whatever haha. Everyone’s always talking about bacon and chocolate. I mean, come on, you can’t go anywhere online without hearing about bacon and chocolate this, bacon and chocolate that. Even I’m not immune to this never-ending craze. But let’s face...
Pumpkin Swirl Brownies

Pumpkin Swirl Brownies

These pumpkin swirl brownies began when I found a “brownie” recipe from Martha Stewart online and hated it. I don’t usually like to bash people, but her recipe was NOT a brownie! Oh Martha, have you gone mad? Don’t you know that a brownie is supposed to be chocolaty?! Her’s was more like a mediocre...
Bacon S'mores

Bacon S’mores

The look on my mom’s face when I told her about this bacon s’more recipe was of complete disgust. She even hesitantly repeated what I had just asked her to buy at the store – bacon, marshmallows, and chocolate. No mom…no, you did not mishear me! Even after bringing those ingredients home, she still wasn’t...
Nutella Cups

Nutella Cups

I came up with this candy a few years ago for my friend Amanda’s birthday. A bunch of us booked a hotel room and were planning to party all night long with drinks, food, and dancing. I didn’t know what to get her, so I thought it would be fun to put together a “snack...
Reese’s Rice Krispie Treats

Reese’s Rice Krispie Treats

Yesterday was my friend’s birthday, so I wanted to make her something (I’m all about food gifts). After thinking about it for a little bit, I decided to make my favorite rice krispie treats for her. But these are no ordinary rice krispies…these have Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups mixed inside and a peanut butter chocolate...
Tempura Bananas with Chocolate-Coconut Drizzle

Tempura Bananas with Chocolate-Coconut Drizzle

FRIED BANANAS! Yesss! I got the idea to make tempura bananas with a chocolate-coconut sauce when I looked in the pantry and noticed I had leftover coconut from some cookies I made last year! Since I hate to waste anything, I figured I’d fry something! Think coconut fried shrimp, but with the deliciousness of bananas...

Chocolate Toffee Cracker Cookies

Chocolate Toffee Cracker Cookies

At my house, what do Christmas, New Years, and Valentine’s Day have in common? Chocolate toffee cracker cookies, that’s what! I have no idea if these even qualify as cookies, but they’re more cookie than candy bark sooo they’re cookies to me! My mom started making these back when I was 13-14, and the recipe...
Mom’s Almond Soy Fruit Smoothie

Mom’s Almond Soy Fruit Smoothie

Although I do most of the cooking for my family, my mom insists she makes the best smoothies. She blends together three different kinds of berries, almonds, and soy milk. Toss in a splash of vanilla and you’re good to go! I usually make my smoothies with juice, but her recipe is pretty good so...
