Cinnamon S’more Waffle Sandwich

I’ve talked about my love for all things S’mores before, and today’s recipe brings it to a whole new level! Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce my Cinnamon S’more Waffle Sandwich!!!

Perfect Pumpkin Muffins

It’s officially fall, y’all!!!! Sometimes I can’t resist rhyming. Sorry, I digress.  In honor of the first week of fall, I’m bringing you a surprising new favorite recipe at our house: Perfect Pumpkin Muffins ๐Ÿ™‚ I say it’s surprising because I’ve never made (or eaten) anything with pumpkin. Not even a pumpkin spice latte, whichRead more

Strawberries and Cream

Whenever I think of Strawberries and Cream, I think about that time I got pulled over for speeding and couldn’t talk my way out of the ticket *palm to forehead* What’s the story, you say? Well, let’s rewind about 16 years ago to the summer I started dating my husband, Ryan. He had recently undergone kneeRead more

Ice Cream Sandwiches

This post is dedicated to my sugar-loving, handsome husband who is a 5-year-old at heart:) I’ve alluded to his love for all things sugar in the past, but I realized I hadn’t really made something that was 100% completely him. Until now. Enter these super easy to assemble Ice Cream Sandwiches. You guys, this doesn’t even countRead more

Dairy Free Blueberry Muffins with Lemon Glaze

Snow storm Jonas completely slammed the DMV (DC, MD, & VA) a couple weeks ago – we got almost 40 inches! As annoying as it is to shovel that immense amount of snow (thanks, Ryan!) I’ve always loved the idea of getting snowed in. Growing up that was always a time when my mom and I would cuddleRead more

S’mores Mousse Cups

So here we are one week into the new year and I’m already posting a slightly-less-than-healthy dessert. Oops. But it’s S’mores Mousse Cups, guys! How could I not?! I’m a sucker for anything s’mores. And although there’s nothing wrong with an old fashion S’more with two graham crackers, a chocolate bar, and a marshmallow….I wantedRead more

Cinnamon Pecan Monkey Bread

I made this for the first time a week ago and it was love at first bite. Full disclosure: the pictures you see in this post represent the third time I’ve made this in one week (#noregrets). Monkey Bread is something almost everyone has had, and it’s easy to see the appeal: butter, sugar, bread. NeedRead more
