sweet treats

Almost Cranberry Bliss Bars

Since my last blog centered on coffee and a certain coffee house, it makes sense for me to continue with another coffee house themed post. For my 3rd day of Homemade Christmas, I would like to share my, Almost Cranberry Bliss Bars.

Peppermint Meltaways

It’s cookie season! Time to get out that parchment paper and line those cookie sheets and get baking! I have been testing so many different recipes lately to add to my homemade Christmas list that I cannot even begin to tell you how many cookies and treats I have made and my family has eaten. I can tell you my family has some new favorites that we will be sharing with our friends and family this year. Sweet treats like Peppermint Meltaways.

12 Days of Homemade Christmas 2016

December is here once again and that means it is time to bring out the cookies and holiday inspired sweet treats! Everyone has their own favorite and my family is no different. Like, for my husband, it just isn’t Christmas without Buckeyes and we always have some classic sugar cookies for my kids to decorate for Santa. Over the past few years, I have shared many of our tried and true favorites, so many that I wasn’t sure what to put on the list for this year. It is getting harder and harder so I switched gears a little bit and have been searching for and testing out some new recipes for this years 12 days of Homemade Christmas.

Caramel and Bacon Brownies

I have to tell y’all a secret about bloggers and blogging. We have to work months ahead. It is one of the things I dislike because every year it seems bloggers are pushing things out earlier and earlier. That is why you have been seeing Christmas pins for well over a month now on Pinterest. Here is something about me. I just can’t. I know I need to organize and get my Christmas stuff going but when it is 75+ degrees out, it is hard coming up with 12 things for my Homemade Christmas posts, I’m just not ready to write about Christmas and the holidays.   I have been working on new recipes, though. I have an awesome new brownie recipe that my family loves, Caramel and Bacon Brownies.

It’s October and that means Halloween! We LOVE Halloween in our house and all of the spooky things that come with it. From costumes and decorations right down to food and drinks. My kids are getting older, so my family’s days trick or treating are slowing coming to an end but that doesn’t mean our Halloween fun has to end. I still try to make Halloween special and fun for my boys. Special snacks and treats are definitely the way to the hearts and stomachs. Sweet treats like Ice Cream Floats are perfect for Halloween parties and fun.
