Soft and chewy snickerdoodle cookies flavored with eggnog to get into the Holiday Spirt! These snickerdoodles are rolled in cinnamon and sugar.  I made two cookies this weekend. These Eggnog Snickerdoodles and a brownie cookie with mint frosting. These Eggnog Snickerdoodles were my favorite out of the two that I made. Tis the season to buy some eggnog. I bought my very first container of eggnog at the grocery store this weekend and was dreaming up of all the different eggnog flavored ...

Peppermint Oreo Fluff

peppermint oreo fluff 027

Oreo Fluff  and Cranberry Fluff salad are two recipes that are pretty popular on this site. Since peppermint is pretty popular right now, it would make sense to combine the peppermint and oreo fluff.  Oreo Fluff is already delicious on it's own and any flavor you add to it will just make it better.  So, in goes the peppermint! I couldn't stop eating this. I even put some of the fluff inbetween two brownie cookies that I had made yesterday for the bake sale. Delicious! Crushing peppermint can ...

Cranberry Orange Pound Cake

Cranberry Orange Pound Cake 042

  A sweet cake made with fresh cranberries and orange, perfect to make for the Holidays or take as a homemade gift to a friend or family member.  Is it bread or is a cake? I like to think of it as cake shaped like a bread loaf. Thanksgiving has come and gone and I'm sure you have plenty of leftovers. If you accidently bought an extra bag of fresh cranberries you can store them in the freezer. They last for a quite a long time in there. I like to buy extra bags around the Holidays just fo ...

Leftover Halloween Candy Cheese Ball

candy bar cheesecake ball 004

Next Saturday is Halloween already.   I haven't even found my Halloween costume yet, but tomorrow after work I plan on going out shopping for one. I have no idea what I want to be yet. Last year, I was a zombie and I could do that again, but usually I like to be something different every year.  Guess what I happen to be getting on Halloween as well? My new oven is being delivered that day. Yay! This week, I deleted my facebook app off my phone. I think it has been good for me, because w ...

Easy 3 Ingredient Microwave Fudge Bites

The Easiest 3-Ingredient Fudge Bites 024

Guess what?! My oven is not working anymore. I forget what day it was last week, where I was cooking some bacon in my cast iron skillet, and my burner wouldn't shut off. The only way to turn it off was to completely unplug the machine. On Saturday, I wanted some eggs and tried it again. Nope. The burner that wasn't shutting off before came right back on right away after the oven had been unplugged for a couple of days. I have an electric oven. I'm not one of those lucky people that get a gas ...

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. ...

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 ...
