The Best Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

These are the cookies that won my picky husband’s heart forever. I’m not a huge peanut butter fan but even I was smitten with these thick, soft, and chewy cookies. They are the best peanut butter cookies I’ve ever tasted. Most peanut butter cookies are dry and leave little to be desired but these are nothing short of amazing. My picky husband even loves them more than his new favorite Butterfinger Krispy Treats. Continue reading

Pumpkin cake, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies, and now pumpkin dulce de leche made in my Instant Pot. Continue reading

RIP Glenn Bloody Cake Eyeballs

I peeked just in time to see Glenn professing his undying love to Maggie. *sob* Sunday night is the only night I stay up past my bedtime so my husband and I can watch The Walking Dead semi-live (we DVR it to skip most of the commercials). I sacrifice an extra hour of sleep because by the time Monday morning rolls around everyone has already spoiled whatever big event/reveal occurred Sunday night.

Lazy Mom’s Oreo Cake Balls

Fall Cake Balls

Cake balls or cake pops are a perfect party treat for kids. What kid (or kid-like adult) doesn’t like Oreos covered in chocolate and sprinkles? When I make treats for a large crowd I try to find ways to save time and energy. These treats are perfect for a parent short on time or too lazy to bake a cake to make traditional cake balls.
