Blueberry Muffins with a Brown Sugar Crumble

Breakfast food is the best food! I don't think anyone would be able to convince me of anything different! On the weekdays, I typically grab a smoothie on my way to work. But on the weekends?

S’mores Rice Krispies

Minty Green Milkshake

I love a good milkshake! It's like everything you love about ice cream, but even more portable by being in a cup! If I had realized how easy making a milkshake was, I probably wouldn't have had to frequent my ice cream parlor as often. But now that I know I can have a delicious… Continue reading Minty Green Milkshake

Chewy Caramel Pecan Cookies

That's a pretty picture, isn't it? I'm not afraid to admit that this was batch number two of cookie dough and about 3 hours later with approximately 18 cookies burnt, squished, flattened, and broken all sitting in the trash can. You might as well count this post as my Kitchen Confessional because I'm about to… Continue reading Chewy Caramel Pecan Cookies
