Snickerdoodle Pumpkin Donut Holes

There is one food I have never been able to resist. Sure, ice cream is amazing, mac & cheese is divine, and chocolate is, well, chocolate. But most of the time, if I know I’ve eaten a bunch of junk throughout the day, I can resist indulging in one of these guilt-inducing treats at the…

Midnight Dark Chocolate Truffles

Ever sneaked downstairs for a midnight snack? I still, to this day, have the most vivid memory of sneaking downstairs at night with my best friend, Phebe, in 1st grade in order to get a midnight snack. Actually, it was more like a 10 PM snack, considering we were only in 1st grade. We slid…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bowls

Have you ever gone to a party and seen the cutest little desserts, party favors, or decorations and just wondered how on earth the host got it all together!? And of course, when you ask her (or him!) she usually just laughs and says “oh it was nothing!” Well let me tell you, party hosts…
