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

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

Butterfinger Blondies

We can all blame these Butterfinger Blondies on my sister.  She sent me one of those horrid/wonderful Tasty videos a few weeks ago with peanut butter Butterfinger butterscotch blondies and it got my wheels turning.

Moist Chocolate Cake

I almost titled this recipe “a chocolate cake so good it may actually kill you” but I didn’t want to be over dramatic. But seriously.  All I can say is thank God I didn’t discover this during The Great Cake Binge of 2014. We had friends over for my good friend Leina’s birthday and when I… Continue reading Moist Chocolate Cake
