Pumpkin Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

I Put a Spell on You Alright, so If you’re doing Halloween remotely right, there are very good odds you have already, or will be carving up a pumpkin very soon. And when you’re in there, getting elbow deep in pumpkin guts, you may or may not know about the treasure hidden inside these orange globes of fall goodness. So allow me to shed some light. It was 2 whole years ago (yikes) when we …

Pumpkin Spiced Bone Cookies

This Is Halloween Halloween! Seven hells, it’s already Halloween.. Do you remember last Halloween? I do. Like it was yesterday! But we mustn’t complain about how time is flying or we’ll find ourselves in 2015 before we finish the rant. Instead, let’s talk Halloween! Who has traditions? Let me know in the comments. Movies? Haunted houses? Parties? For us, the one thing we always do is watch Hocus Pocus with some cookies and hot cocoa. You …

The Wife’s Sunday Dinners – Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Dark Horse I hope you guys are ready because this is a post yeeeeeears in the making. Ever since I started the blog I’ve been trying my hardest to get permission to do this recipe. And after countless hours of drilling and persuading, I finally got the rights from the creator to go for it. Yes, my wife is finally letting me post her Baked Macaroni and Cheese recipe! What?! What do you mean what’s …

Bacon Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies with Maple Buttercream Frosting

Hellooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! I haven’t seen you guys since National S’mores Day! That was like 3 weeks ago right? I’m terrible at math, let me see how ma… whoa! That was almost 2 months ago!? How’s it going! What’s happenin’!? How’s the weather?? Ok, fine, I’ll cut the chit-chat. I’m sorry, ok! It’s not my fault I’ve been away so long. It’s what happens when I give myself projects on other sites. Speaking of which, not 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 …

Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Cookies

Conquistador So I started thinking, and I couldn’t remember the last time I made cookies. I remember strawberry, nutella & balsamic reduction empanadas, and an obscene amount of key lime brownies. But not cookies. With being out of the cookie game for so long (yes there’s a cookie game, and I didn’t choose it, it chose me), I wondered if I still had it in me. Then, more importantly, I wondered if I even had anything to bake …

Mango Salsa

Summer! …Summer is here, right? It better be because it’s pretty hot out there. It could be just as hot here as it is in Florida but I wouldn’t complain. I’d be able to find solace in the fact that the heat will only last a few short months rather than 10 straight months with a cool breeze the other 2. And speaking of a few short months… I just wanted to make everyone aware …

Key Lime Brownies

Boom There are no words that can truly express the pure and utter joy I currently have. Not because we won the lotto or anything trivial like that. But because I can finally post these brownies.Let me tell you the story that led to this glorious moment. It all started when I was trying to think of something to do for my friends at Wilton. It had been a while since I posted for the …
