Rice Krispie Egg Nests

Easter is less than a month away! This year is just flying by for me so far. I swear, the older my kids get, the faster time flies.  Between all the sports, activities, holidays, and school functions I feel like I never catch my breath. It goes something like this: Christmas. Four months of baseball,… Continue reading Rice Krispie Egg Nests

Strawberry Pretzel Cheesecake Dessert

Confession: I’m a potluck snob.  To clarify, I am not a fan of eating food if I don’t know where or how it was prepared.  If we’re friends, and I’ve seen that you have a clean kitchen and you don’t pick your nose and eat it, I’ll eat your food.  Otherwise, I’m afraid, I usually… Continue reading Strawberry Pretzel Cheesecake Dessert

Toffee Chocolate Chip Bars

My almost two year old daughter Phoebe is quite a handful.  She’s really giving me a run for my money in a way that her two older siblings did not.  She has a very mischievous, get-into-absolutely-everything, help-myself-to-anything-in-the-pantry, try-to-run-into-traffic, jump-off-all-the-high-things, streak that I am quite certain comes from my Dad’s side of the family and that… Continue reading Toffee Chocolate Chip Bars

Cake Mix Peanut Butter Bars

Oh joy, football season is upon us, and it is my absolute favorite time of year.  Time to cheer my Seahawks on to victory, bundle up in cute scarves and tall boots, eat pumpkin-spiced things, and narrowly avoid rear-ending somebody 4 times a day because I am so easily distracted by the beautiful fall leaves.… Continue reading Cake Mix Peanut Butter Bars

Applesauce Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

It appears that summer may be skipping the pacific northwest this year.  I think our average high has been about 70.  This is not a complaint, on the contrary, I’m super happy about it, I’m just telling it like it is.  Hopefully it will mean lots and lots of snow for us in the fall… Continue reading Applesauce Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

The Ultimate Peanut Butter Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats

Since I made Ultimate Rice Krispie Treats back in February, I have probably made them half a dozen more times.  That’s a lot for me.  Krispie Treats were a rarity in my life before I found that recipe.  I thought of them as just okay.  Now they are bomb.com. I’m not sure when the idea… Continue reading The Ultimate Peanut Butter Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats
