Peppermint Mocha Muddy Buddies | Puppy Chow

8231775964_81a9c3d2b5_z

Yesterday, I found out via various social media channels and your blog comments that the true name for this snack is…. Puppy Chow… errr….I mean, Muddy Buddies!  Wait!  You couldn’t make my mind up for me, either!  It seems there was an equal amount of you that calls this popular Chex mix by both their […]

Muddy Buddies | Puppy Chow

You already know and love this one.  We’ve been enjoying this for years upon years.  But, should that keep me from photographing it now and adding it to my blog recipe files?  I think not! Actually, I just want to know if you call them Muddy Buddies or Puppy Chow.  I do both.  Haven’t been […]

Everyone loves dips.  Usually, the favorites are ones that are filled with some sort of cheesy goodness with salty crackers or chips.  Am I right?  But, folks, you should change things up a bit this holiday season and serve your family and friends this apple pie dip.  Don’t get me wrong, I love my cheesy […]

Classic Green Bean Almondine

8187302296_64160e98ee_z

Last year for Thanksgiving, I made a from-scratch version of everyone’s favorite green bean casserole.  This year, a few of you requested a classic Green Bean Almondine recipe, which I thought was a fantastic idea because it’s much easier, a whole lot faster, and is cooked on the stove top! This veggie dish certainly doesn’t […]

Grab a fork or use your fingers for this one!  These cakey bars can go either way, but just a warning, you won’t want only one, especially if you eat them WARM.  I loved the pumpkin chocolate combination and shared them with a group of friends last weekend who also gave them a big thumbs […]

Happy Saturday everyone!  A while ago, I was updating you weekly with my personal life stories and links to my favorite finds, and titled it “Penny’s Weekend Garnish”.  Many of you have requested that I return this periodical update, which flatters me that you really like me! ;)  So, I’ve decided to return with this […]

Baking with Mommy: Super Cookies

When I was 20 weeks pregnant with Judah, and we found out that our baby was a boy, I was a little disappointed at first.  Yes, I’m admitting it, but <shhhhh!> don’t tell him!  ;)  For some crazy reason, I thought that it would be much more fun to have a daughter to share my […]

Do you have trouble hard-boiling your eggs so that they are perfectly yellow in the middle?  Or, maybe you have that conquered, but you can’t peel those darn eggs to save your life? I used to be one of you.  It was only in the last few months that I finally found my perfect hard […]

(WARNING:  Lengthy post and LOTS of photos below!)  Last month, I had the privilege of attending the first, hopefully annual, Taste of Michigan food blogger event.  When I saw Rachel tweet about spending a day visiting the best food places in Grand Rapids, MI with other food bloggers, I immediately contacted her to sign up!  […]
