Edible Eggs for Easter

I have a confession.  I am addicted to peanut butter and chocolate.  The two combined are absolutely heavenly. Continue reading


St. Patty’s Day Breakfast Recipe

Instead of just celebrating this holiday on March 17th, we decided to start celebrating a week in advance.  We figured with Michael’s long work hours and me getting a sinus infection mid week (ok, we didn’t plan for that second one to happen), we should celebrate early and often and probably will add up to a total day’s celebration.

So this past Sunday, we had Irish Soda Bread, which was super yummy and something we could eat throughout the week.  Since we are doing no sugary sweets for Lent (the countdown has already begun and I’m having daily conversations with God over this now), we would have this as a dessert with yogurt or fruit at night.

So here’s the recipe.  Just a short disclaimer, I made this without the usual aid of my husband, so the pictures are not as detailed as before, but the recipe is still there.  Also, this is a good meal to make the day before and than warm in the oven for about 30 mins the day of eating.  🙂  Enjoy!

Sugarfree Fudge?

I ate a lot of sugar the week of Valentine’s Day.  You could say I was pretty close to being sick of all of it.  In fact, it’s partially what inspired me to give it up for Lent.  However, I was curious and intrigued by this alternative to sugary chocolate that I found on Pinterest.  So, Michael and I decided to try to make it last weekend.  It might possibly have been a fail.  I’ll explain why in a minute.  Here’s our recipe adventure:

We didn’t hate it, but we didn’t love it either.  The consistency was that of fudge, but I think if we make it in the future, we will have to go to Whole Foods for the coconut butter.  It’s not that we hate Whole Foods, but it’s just not our ordinary shopping place, so we would have to make a special trip.

Have you ever had a recipe flop or flatten before?  Would you try it again doing something different, or have the memories blotted out that recipe forever?

Girl Scout Cookie Recipe!

I love Girl Scout cookies.  I’ve always wanted to try to make them myself, see how close I can get to the real stuff.  I found this site that has most of the cookie recipes, called Baking Bites, and I thought I would try my favorite, Samoas, first.  However, she gives both the actually cookie version and this “bar” version, which I tried that one first.  They are so good!  They were a hit with my small group and other friends.  So here’s my picture recipe.  🙂

Hope you enjoy it!  They were really fun to make.  🙂

Slow Cooker Taco Picture Recipe

In the winter, I crave soups.  On the weekends, I love using my crockpot while we are out and about.  And in general, I love Mexican food.  Which leads me to the recipe I recently tried from Allrecipes.com, Slow Cooker Taco Soup.  I did change the ingredients some, but it still came out pretty amazing good.  🙂
