Candy Cane and Pretzel Holiday Bark

What’s This It’s Christmas time!! Kris my Kringles, where the heck has the year gone?! I know, I’m pretty bad with this blog thing during the holidays. So many great blogs out there with so many holiday posts coming out of their yule logs. Christmas cookies, pies, all that jazz, just overflowing the internet. It’s so great to see. Sadly, I can hardly find the time to get in the kitchen to do anything these …

Christmas Cookie Lollapalooza

If there’s one thing you gotta love about Christmas time, it’s the joy you get to share with loved ones. Nah, who am I kidding, it’s the cookies. You love the cookies. It’s ok, don’t be ashamed, you could admit it. Trust me, you will not be judged. I am the last person who will tell you you’re wrong for loving a cookie more than a family member. Truuuuuuuuust me. But that’s a whole other …

Salted Caramel & Peppermint Hot Cocoa Snowflakes

Happy holidays!! Just to be clear, I’m not the politically correct type to tell everyone happy holidays. No offense to anyone, but I’ll Merry Christmas your ears till the elves come home. But since we’re in the holiday season and it’s not Christmas yet, that’s how I’m greeting you. But anyway! How’s it going?! Christmas shopping done? Holiday rush getting the best of you? How many elderly people have you pushed out of your way to get …

Caramel & Chocolate Apples

So yeah, we’re at the end of October. If you haven’t caught on, I usually start my blog posts with a reminder of how fast time flies. It’s not my fault! Whenever I start writing something, the first thing I do is look at the date. And almost every time, I’m dumbfounded by how the calendar days are melting away like butter on a hot grill. I really should stop because it’s not good to live …

S’mores Truffles

Here we are again! Like it or not, we are quickly approaching the end of summer. I know, it feels like it just started, but what can you do? Personally, I cannot wait to start enjoying that fresh, crisp fall air. It’s just the way I’m wired. Call me crazy, but I’m not a huge fan of being uncomfortably hot. So sayonara, summer, I hardly wanted to know thee. But before it goes, I wanted …

My Experience at the 2015 Wilton Sweet-Up!

Man! Where to start?! Well, let’s not draw it out. A lot went on and we don’t need filler so I’ll get to it. As you may know, I’m an ambassador for Wilton. As a member of their Sweet Treat Team I’m honored to receive products of theirs to try out and tell you about. It’s an insanely simple relationship we have since I always used their stuff anyway, so when they asked me to …

Heart-Shaped Brownies

Heart Shaped Glasses Happy Valentine’s Day! It wouldn’t be a holiday on this blog if I didn’t cut it super close! I’ve been pretty busy and I wasn’t really planning on doing something for Valentine’s Day, but I had a pretty big reason to besides the undying love I have for my wife and her undying love for brownies… It turns out I did something right in the last year because Wilton asked me to …

S’mores Rolls

Happy National S’mores Day! …..Again!! You know me, I don’t usually do these food holiday things due to my lack of coordination and planning. But hey, it’s not like I was busy doing anything else here, right? Now, this was originally going to be my only post for the #WiltonSweetTreatTeam since I had made the icing with some marshmallow candy melts. Because come on, candy melts deserve the love. But as you may have read …

Shot Glass S’mores

Happy National S’mores Day!! I had original plans to celebrate this day, but thanks to a surprise mailer full of fall goodness from Wilton (Pumpkin Spice Candy Melts!), I decided to put in the extra effort and do something else. And if you know anything about me, it’s that I lack any type of coordination to make even one post for a food holiday. Let alone two. The timing at which these posts are going out …
