Monster Eyeball Oreo Truffles

Eyeball Oreo truffles 017

  Halloween is by far my most favorite Holiday. I love decorating. Every year, I tell myself that I need more Halloween decorations. I don't ever buy any full price though. The day after Halloween is the best time to get decorations, because they're %50 off at Spirit Halloween or just about any place where you can get decorations. I try to make my outside of the house look creepy with Grim Reepers, graveyards, and skeletons everywhere. Inside, I like to find candles, table decor, you name it. ...

Well, I've had the last 2 days off and I just love it, and tomorrow I have to go back to work.  Been there for almost 2 years and I haven't really had any real vacation or time off. On Thursday, it is October can you believe that? The pumpkin recipes are still going strong and I probably won't stop making them until Thanksgiving is over with. Going to be putting up my Halloween decorations this week. Have you heard of this trick before? You can mix a 15 oz can of pumpkin with just about ...

Skinny No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

homemade pumpkin pie spice 022

Remember that cannoli dip I made last night? Well, I didn't feel like dipping anymore and I thought that would be a great base for a no-bake cheesecake. I ended up pulverizing a couple of graham crackers for the crust and poured the rest of the cannoli dip on top of the graham cracker crust. Voila, it's like a two-fer recipe. What a great idea, cause it turned out great. It's best to put this in the freezer for a bit so it firms up before cutting. Today, I noticed at the grocery store, that ...

Chocolate-Caramel Monkey Bread

chocolate caramel monkey bread 010

  Tomorrow is a pot luck. I have a love/hate relationship with potlucks. Everything looks so good to eat and I want to eat it all.  I don't want to eat everything cause I'm trying to watch my weight. I also like to bring something to potlucks. Most of the time I will bring something in a crock pot, but this time I'm going to bring some Monkey Bread. It gives me a chance to bake something without reducing the calories in the original recipe in order for it to be on the lighter side. Good e ...

Skinny Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Pumpkin-Cinnamon Rolls 012

This week has been so busy! On Thursday, my brother and his wife were up here for the funeral and on Friday I was out of town all day. I haven't had much time to cook anything at all. The Fall season is approaching really fast. I went looking at all my past pumpkin recipes on this blog, and noticed they needed major picture updating. Like these pumpkin cinnamon rolls. You can see the original pic here on this link. Pretty terrible pictures, but the new pics make me feel like I've come a long ...

Mojito Cupcakes

mojito cupcakes 003

These boozy cupcakes will have you drunk and on the floor in no time, because it's 5 o'clock somewhere! It's your basic vanilla cupcake and then you have all your ingredients in a classic Mojito. Rum Mint Sugar lime These cupcakes get brushed with a simple rum and mint syrup right out of the smoking hot oven, and then they are topped with a vanilla frosting, that has lime zest and rum in it.  Even better than a mojito! I'm pretty sure there is something wrong with my top ...

Salted Caramel Butter Bars

sausage and potatoes retake 005

These Salted Caramel Butter bars are a little naughty. A little naughty as in, the cookie bar itself has 4 sticks of butter! You read that right. 4 sticks of butter. Can you feel your arteries clogging now? Not to mention the caramel sauce has a stick of butter in it. These bars would be great at some kind of back to school bake sale. People will love them! Salted caramel is my favorite and this is definitely not a dessert you want to eat if you're trying to watch your pounds. I have to admit, I ...
