Daisy’s Fudgy Brownies

Fudgy, one-bowl brownies- the best way to satisfy your chocolate cravings!

15 years ago today, my dog Daisy was born. I had been begging for my own dog for 2 years. We always had a dog around, and I was usually following it everywhere, but I wanted one all for myself. I understand now why my parents didn’t get a puppy for an 8-year-old (we had two other dogs, anyways), but at the time it was the hardest struggle I faced. 🙂

Me and Daisy

I finally got my puppy, and played with her every single day. I loved her instantly. She had a fierce, independent spirit and never cared to cuddle, but she loved me back. She was my constant companion and best friend. As she grew older, she was more apt to lick me and sit in my lap. Every time I saw her, she howled in excitement and I rubbed her face, scratched her back, and told her how much I loved her.

Chocolate Raspberry Crepes

Chocolate Raspberry Crepes- quick, easy crepes that melt in your mouth, with fresh raspberry filling!

I was able to do another cooking demo at the Farmers’ Market yesterday! I was so excited because this time I knew what I was getting into, but I had no clue what to make. I wanted to make another dessert or breakfast type food, and I needed to include an ingredient from the market. I decided to attempt crepes, which I’d never made before. I knew they had a lot of eggs in them and our market is full of egg sellers. From there, I just had to pick my flavor! Continue reading “Chocolate Raspberry Crepes”

Samoas Cupcakes

Samoas Cupcakes- If you like the cookies, you'll LOVE these cupcakes!

This is my favorite little creation ever. They make me very, very happy. I even made some mini ones so I could “play around with decorating”, but really I just wanted to eat them all. So all I really did was take my two favorite recipes and make these cupcakes. Ok, 3 recipes. They’re my favorite, which is actually saying something because for as many sugary treats as I make, it’s gotta be GOOD for me to eat more than one. Or to make a recipe more than once.

Chocolate Cookie Dough Cupcakes

When I pin things on Pinterest, I try to actually use them at some point. I try the exercises, the crafts, or the recipes and see if they’re worth keeping. If they aren’t, I delete them. For my recipes, I have a board called “Best Pinned Recipes” where I move recipes I’ve tried and enjoyed so I can use them again eventually.

Egg-Free Chocolate Pudding (+3 Ways To Make It Fancy!)

Chocolate Pudding

Mom makes the best chocolate meringue pie. Growing up, I’d watch her cook the filling on the stove and lick out the bowl once it was cooled. She has this old cookbook that has a recipe for “Man Pleaser Chocolate Pie”, which always made me smile when I saw it. Once I was old enough to realize how amazing homemade pudding is all by itself, it became my go-to dessert. I like to make a batch and eat it all by myself. Sorry, Michael!
