Nutella No-Bake Cookies


Do you ever have problems getting your chocolate no-bake cookies to set right?  In the last year, my mom has had a really difficult time getting her usual recipe to harden correctly.  Either they don’t harden at all and are a sloppy mess, or they become too crunchy.  She used to make them all of […]

Ham and Cheese Soft Pretzel Sliders


Can you feel it in the air?  The Super Bowl is right around the corner!  Only a few more days!  By now, you probably know where you’ll be watching the game, but do you know what you’ll be eating?  Or, better yet, what dish will you be making to impress your friends? Because we all […]

Lighter Fare to Ring in the New Year!


We are still in the middle of packing and moving, but next week I should be back in the kitchen cooking up a storm in my new surroundings.  (Can’t wait!)  This doesn’t mean I’ll be focusing on only healthy and lighter recipes (sorry, NFL playoff season is here) but I can leave you with this […]
