Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars

Who here has to have dessert every night? Am I the only one? I know, I know, it’s kind of a problem. Having dessert every single day is definitely not practicing the best moderation, especially if you’re like me and typically gravitate towards ice cream as your dessert. And a big ole bowl of it…

German Chocolate Cupcakes

Pecans, coconut, and chocolate are the best combination. If these cupcakes are truly “German”, not in the way French fries aren’t actually French, then I think the Germans are definitely doing something right. Because these cupcakes are divine. In addition to the the gourmet chocolate cupcakes with a light coconut undertone, the icing has the…

Sweet Almond Apricot Tarts

After my friend practically held me up as I attempted to…

Cobblers really are the perfect summer desserts. They can be made with whatever fruit is in season (my favorite are blueberry and peach…

Mocha Butterscotch Blondies

It’s basically the same thing, but with icing. Anyways, when I got a…

Mini Apple Pies

The Fourth of the July is less than a week away! What do you like to do on the Fourth? I love barbequing out with friends and family: flipping burgers, watching fireworks, and attempting to finish your ice cream cone before it drips down your hand. Of course, whenever I go to a BBQ I…
