Double Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

Pin It

I felt like making bar cookies today and instead of the standard chocolate chip cookie bars I decided to make my base with peanut butter cookies.

And what better recipe to use than a tried and true amazing Chewy Peanut Butter base cookie recipe with a few added touches to make them over to top delicious.

Crock Pot Breakfast Casserole

Pin It

This is the perfect breakfast for early morning risers or a lazy weekend meal.

I love my crock pot and have been recipe testing for a few weeks now and this one is a keeper.

This would be perfect for a brunch get together or even the upcoming holidays.

Blueberry Lemon Coconut Muffins

Pin It

There's just something about fresh warm muffins in the morning that makes you feel extra special.

I love a good homemade muffin and am usually on the lookout for new recipes.

The other day I had been looking for the Craisins at Costco when I came across dried blueberries and decided to give them a try.  I usually only use fresh blueberries for muffins.

Peanut Butter M&M Truffles

Pin It

I have decided to give candy making a try this year and when these peanut butter M&M balls came across my Facebook page from Tasty (who else, lol) I decided this was where I would start.

Is there a better combination than chocolate and peanut butter?  I think not!

Candy making in this form is way easier than you would think.  You don't need to bust out the candy thermometer and the flavor combinations are endless.

Apricot Dijon Pork Tenderloin

Pin It

I have been making this dish for several years and it has become a family favorite.

I have the same sauce posted on an earlier recipe for Apricot Glazed Pork Roast and have just adjusted the amounts for these pork tenderloins.

I find that tenderloin is the best cut of meat for this recipe and they always turn out perfectly.

Frosted Eggnog Cookies

Pin It

My cousin Elena introduced me to Eggnog last year and I couldn't be happier, right now, that she did!

I had actually forgotten all about eggnog until a couple of weeks ago when I decided to buy a quart and try it again.

I also decided to try baking with it and using it to make some candy.

Fancy Coconut Layer Cake

Pin It
This Fancy Coconut Layer Cake is one of the most delicious cakes ever!

It is a super simple recipe and so flavorful you'll impress everyone who tries a slice.

I made this for myself (yes I said myself) for my birthday this year because I LOVE coconut and homemade is so much more delicious than store bought.

Cheese Stuffed Italian Meatballs

Pin It

There is this recipe all over Facebook lately for Mozzarella Stuffed Slow Cooker Meatballs from Tasty.  They look amazing and everyone I know has been trying them.

I decided to adapt the recipes slightly and make it on the stove top for a faster weeknight meal.

This can certainly still be made in the slow cooker just as easily as the stove top.
