Oreo Red Velvet Cookie Bars – an easy blondie recipe full of red velvet cookie flavor filled with Oreos and chocolate!

Oreo Red Velvet Cookie Bars - this easy blondie recipe is full of red velvet flavor AND Oreos and chocolate!

It’s been a rough week you guys. A this time last week I was heading to San Francisco to host a girls weekend with some of my favorite blogger friends. I spent the weekend showing off my favorite city, eating way too much food and overindulging on martinis. This week has been spent on rather mundane things like house duties and, well, work. BORING: I’d rather be spending my days lunching with the ladies and talking about, well, anything but doing what I have to be doing.

Is it me, or is that pretty much the definition of being an adult? Doing things we have to do all day long instead of things we want to do? Tween drama aside, being a kid was way easier. Although I think that maybe being an adult can be more fun, especially when you get to spend weekends with women you consider like sisters.

That all is a long winded way of saying that my brain still won’t work right after my weekend and I’m just trying to buy time writing something interesting today…so let’s talk about these bars before you completely get fed up and click away, mmkay?

Oreo Red Velvet Cookie Bars - this easy blondie recipe is full of red velvet flavor AND Oreos and chocolate!

I made these bars a few weeks ago for a friend. She LOVES red velvet and needed a little pick-me-up, so I whipped up this easy recipe for her. I decided to post it today because it’s her birthday…and I know she’d love it if I made these again for her. (I’ll probably make some other red velvet goodie for her…like a cupcake or a cheesecake bar.)

These cookie bars start with my favorite blondie base. I made them into red velvet like I did with my red velvet blondies by adding some cocoa and red food coloring. They’re super gooey and thick and rich and they have the perfect touch of red velvet flavor.

I decided that they also needed chocolate because, duh, doesn’t everything need chocolate? A healthy dose of chopped Oreos gets added to the batter and then I sprinkle them with chocolate chips before baking. The result: an ooey gooey Oreo red velvet cookie bar that’s also super chocolatey!

Chocolate Chip Caramel Butter Bars - easy sugar cookie bars filled with chocolate chips and sandwiched with gooey caramel sauce! These gooey bars are SO addicting.

So…question: is football over yet? I’m asking for a friend. No? Okay then, fine.

In all honesty…I think I’m kind of over football season (before it’s even gotten started) because I haven’t been invited to a party yet. A friend of mine mentioned one but it didn’t happen…so now I’m thinking I need to organize something. Because watching football is way more fun when the husbands watch it in the family room and the wives gossip over wine in the kitchen.

And did I mention football food? I feel like I’ve been training all my life for football party eating. Chips, nachos, dip, cookies and bars: I’ve emptied out one of my legs especially for the occasion.

Before you get baking for next weekends games (because I know you all tailgate, right?) you need to print this recipe. These ooey gooey Chocolate Chip Caramel Butter Bars are the dessert that your next party will be talking about for days.

Chocolate Chip Caramel Butter Bars

This recipe is a brainchild of so many other recipes. I started thinking about all my favorite gooey bars, especially the chocolate chip ones. But then I thought I’ve been there, done that…so I decided to make my favorite sugar cookie recipe and add chocolate chips. But, still, I wanted to fallifize (remember that word I made up?) the recipe…so I decided to use caramel in the center, like I did with my Caramel Peanut Butter Cookie Bars.

All in all I ruminated about this recipe for DAYS before I finally made it. Seriously, I went back and forth akin to my husband picking his fantasy team for the week.

The result of all my brainstorming resulted in these Chocolate Chip Caramel Butter Bars. They’re a sugar cookie crust, made with my favorite Challenge Butter, stuffed with gooey chocolate chips and layered with caramel sauce. Once they bake they’re gooey to the MAX. As you can tell, I probably cut these a little too soon. I wanted the gooey to come across in my photos…and they ended up being plate-and-fork bars. But after a few hours of chilling in the refrigerator they were much more manageable finger food.

Easy Apple Fritter Cinnamon Roll Bake - canned cinnamon rolls mixed with cinnamon apples baked like monkey bread! It's like an apple fritter cinnamon roll!

Ways that you know that you have a Target problem:

  • You know the speed and bagging abilities of each cashier on the floor at any given time and are able to navigate the line to your advantage.
  • You plan your weekly meals according to which vegetables you know they sell there so you can avoid going to the real grocery store.
  • You go for one item and spend $150.
  • You have the coupon texting number in your contacts list.
  • You realize as you’re texting “SAVE” to that number so you can save $10 off a $40 clothing purchase that you also used the same coupon the last time you were at Target, which means you’ve spent over $40 on clothing twice in less than a week.

All of these may or may not have happened to me last week. I’m not confirming or denying it, and neither is Mel because I used my own credit card so he wouldn’t see two Target trips on our joint card and be all WTH are you buying at Target?

In my defense, the second time I went I had to get more Pillsbury Grands! Cinnamon Rolls. The first can I bought ended up in a failed recipe and I still wanted to remake it…

…But I also really like looking at clothes. So really, going a second time was an easy choice.

Easy Apple Fritter Cinnamon Roll Bake - canned cinnamon rolls mixed with cinnamon apples baked like monkey bread! It's like an apple fritter cinnamon roll!

Have you ever made a recipe knowing that you immediately needed to get rid of it? I’m famous for those recipes and most of them get sent off or frozen ASAP. But not this one.

This one I ate straight from the pan. With a fork. Over two days. BY MYSELF.

(So much for low-carb. *eyeroll*)

This is a keeper recipe. If you make one sweet brunch or breakfast recipe this year, let it be this one. It’s easy, has just a handful of ingredients, and tastes like an apple fritter on crack.

Except the crack is Pillsbury cinnamon rolls and icing.

Apple Fritter Cinnamon Roll Bake

Basically, this recipe is ready in no time at all. It’s like a combination of monkey bread and an apple fritter and a cinnamon roll and a bubble-up bake all in one.

It starts with the aforementioned $150 Pillsbury Grands! cinnamon rolls. I cut each roll into 6 pieces (and they promptly fell apart, so that’s okay). Place them in a baking dish and top them with easy cinnamon apples. I used 2 apples that I diced small and cooked in the microwave with some brown sugar and cinnamon.

(I KNOW, RIGHT? The microwave. No more pans to wash!)

Then I drizzled a monkey bread glaze (brown sugar + butter) all over the top and baked them. THEN I thinned out the icing that came with the cinnamon rolls and drizzled it allllll over the top.

And then I attacked the pan with a fork.

My new favorite drink: a Lemon Cupcake Martini – only 3 ingredients in this easy martini recipe that tastes like a lemon cupcake!

Lemon Cupcake Martini - just THREE ingredients to this martini that tastes like a lemon cupcake!

Yesterday was my 39th birthday. How I got to be “almost 40” I’ll never know…I blinked and went from 25 to 39. I’m excited to be this age (except for the wrinkles, metabolism, and age spots) because I kind of just want to get to 40 already. Mel turned 40 the year we got married (15 years ago) so I’ve been kind of chasing him this whole time. (Plus, I’m going to have a kick ass party for my 40th…and I’m already excited for it.)

My 38th birthday (and the months following) were less than fun. We had some stuff going on personally that just kicked my butt and sent me into an anxiety/depression tailspin. The latter half of this year was me getting my emotional life back on track, so I kind of feel like I’ve already run the self-discovery marathon that is approaching 40.

When I was 25 and newly married I was told by my in-laws that when you get into your late 30s and 40s you start to not care about the little stuff as much. You start to find your voice and come into your own. Having this blog has helped me do the former, and the events of the past year have helped me with the latter. I still have a lot to work on, but life is long; I have some time.

That all said, I do have a sort of “40 year old Bucket List” of things I want to do before I turn 40. When I started putting together the list I realized there are just a few things I’ve really always wanted to do but never done; things that if I put my mind to them should be easy to accomplish.

After all, a few weeks ago I accomplished something I said I could never do: run a half marathon. The rest should be easy in comparison!

Easy No Bake Peanut Butter Cup Pie - this AMAZING pie recipe has a NUTTER BUTTER Pie Crust!

This pie is special. It’s spectacular, yes, but it’s also special. Why? Because it’s Crazy for Crust’s 6th Birthday Pie!!

That’s right, today is this blog’s 6th birthday. 6 years ago I sat down and wrote my first post. It was a crust, and the photos and writing were horrible. Oh how far I’ve come.

Seriously though, the last six years have been pretty amazing. I went from not knowing what a blog was to having one that’s pretty successful. I went from never being able to bake without a recipe to creating my own recipes on a daily basis. And, most importantly, I went from an unhappy, stuck-in-a-rut, frustrated stay-at-home mom with nothing that was hers to a business owner.

That’s pretty darn special, if you ask me. To celebrate, the occasion needed a special recipe. This pie fits that requirement: it’s a No Bake Peanut Butter Cup Pie that’s no-bake peanut butter cheesecake filled with peanut butter cups all encased in a peanut butter cookie crust and topped with hot fudge and more peanut butter cups.

Drooling…

No Bake Peanut Butter Cup Pie

Back when I asked Mel to name his favorite pie of all time, this is what he told me. Remember last week, I said the requirement was a peanut butter cookie crust. Well, he also requested that it be peanut butter and filled with peanut butter cups. I did what he asked, and guess what? As a birthday present to Crazy for Crust, he ate TWO bites, allowing me to give this pie the Mel ate it tag.

This pie is really the epitome of this blog: it’s easy, it’s got a crust, and it’s damn good.

Feel free to use an Oreo or Graham Cracker crust instead of the peanut butter cookie crust – any of the three would be fabulous. But if you’re a peanut butter lover like we are, well, there’s no contest.

Okay, and now it’s time to get all mushy about the fact I’ve been doing this for 6 years.

Salted Caramel Mocha Cheesecake Dip - this easy no-bake cheesecake recipe is PERFECT for dipping fruit or pretzels or eating with a spoon.

I am SO excited about this week for several reasons but first and foremost? All the TV shows start back again!! I get my fill of Modern Family and Madame Secretary and Grey’s. And, it looks like there are tons of new good shows coming out this year. I’m most excited for This Is Us, Speechless, and Designated Survivor. What are you looking forward to?

With the new fall shows and cooler weather (HAHA, it’s 90 here today) comes all the fall food flavors! Pumpkin spice gets all the glory this time of year, but what about salted caramel? I mean, if you ask me, pumpkin spice is good but salted caramel mochas? They’re WAY better. Caramel, chocolate, coffee…not much better on a cool fall morning.

It’s also good for dipping. Now you can drink your coffee and EAT it too because of this Salted Caramel Mocha Cheesecake Dip.

Salted Caramel Mocha Cheesecake Dip - this easy no-bake cheesecake recipe is PERFECT for dipping fruit or pretzels or eating with a spoon.

Not only are the fall flavors back in the coffee house, but they’re back at the grocery store too. International Delight has all their fall favorites back in action and ready to drink, and they added a couple new girls to the bunch this year. This Salted Caramel Mocha creamer is one of them (the other is a Chocolate Hazelnut!) and I’m officially addicted to it.

You guys – it’s like drinking chocolate milk. I seriously had to stop myself from just adding a straw to the bottle.

Not only does it make my second cup of coffee taste like boots and scarves, but it also makes a great dessert – all day long. Also – Jordan loves the salted caramel mocha flavor but that whole “11-year-old coffee drinker” thing isn’t really okay with me, so it’s great for her too. The creamer just has the flavor – not the coffee. I added a little punch to the dip, but you can leave it out if you’re feeding the kids.

Hey y’all, happy Friday. You get a BONUS post this week, aren’t I nice?

(I also want you guys to eat as much has I do, because then I’ll feel better about myself.)

Are you looking for a perfect EASY weekend recipe? This is it, which is why I had to post it today. Run to the store after work and grab what you need to make this Apple Fritter Coffee Cake for the kids before soccer tomorrow. Or it would be great for Sunday brunch!

I was never an apple fritter fan as a kid, but my mom loved them. Recently I was told about a place near me that serves the BEST apple fritters so of course we had to try them, and I immediately fell in love. How did I not love the deep fried sweet apple-y goodness until now? All those apple fritter loving years, wasted.

Easy Apple Fritter Coffee Cake Recipe

As much as I’d love to eat apple fritters every day, I just can’t. For one, the doughnut shop is about 20 minutes away and, well, there’s the whole thing about deep frying stuff being bad for you and all. But this Apple Fritter Coffee Cake? It’s just as good and so not as bad.

The cake is easy – it starts with my favorite mix, Krusteaz. They make a fat-free Apple Cinnamon Muffin Mix that is really good (it even comes with real apples in a pouch). I decided to turn it into an easy coffee cake by baking the muffins in a pie plate and adding that telltale apple fritter glaze.

Jordan and I could have eaten several slices of this – thank goodness we shared it with our neighbors. But now I kind of regret it…because I want a slice right now.

You’re probably thinking…wow these photos look familiar. Hasn’t she made this recipe before? But nope, this is a brand new recipe.

Maybe you’re thinking of my Golden Oreo Crust…or my Graham Cracker Crust…or my Shortbread Crust. They all kinda look similar, don’t they? But THIS crust is the BEST crust of all: it’s made with peanut butter sandwich cookies (aka Nutter Butters).

This is the crust of my dreams.

A few weeks ago, I asked Mel what his dream pie would be. You can probably guess the star was peanut butter because that’s basically all he eats from this blog. You’ll find out the completed pie recipe next week but I knew I had to give the crust a starring role in its own post.

(My goal is to make all the crusts from all the things and share them with all the internets. Sound good to you?)

This Peanut Butter Cookie Crust is the perfect easy no-bake crust for any pie. You could fill it with no-bake cheesecake or dulce de leche or chocolate and peanut butter. Heck, I bet even banana cream pie would taste AMAZING with a peanut butter crust, no?

This would also taste good by itself over ice cream…or is that just me?

Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Frosting - this easy cream cheese frosting recipe is full of pumpkin and spice!

I love frosting. Truth be told, it’s my favorite part of a cupcake, but only if it’s GOOD frosting. It has to be the perfect balance of sweet and flavorful, nothing greasy or overpowering or fake tasting.

Have you ever watched kids at a birthday party? It’s funny because I always go to this trouble of making the perfect cupcakes with gorgeous decorations and afterwards when I’m shoveling plates into a big garbage bag there are chunks of cupcake all over the plates and the frosting is all gone.

Pretty much what I’m saying is that frosting is were it’s AT. A few good frosting recipes are all you need – save yourself the cupcake calories and just serve shots of frosting.

Today I’ve created two new frosting recipes for you that are perfect for any recipe: cupcakes, cake, cookie sandwiches, or even just frosting shots with a spoon. First up, Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Frosting. You guys, this is the BEST frosting. It’s like fall in a bite.

I combined butter and cream cheese and pumpkin, then added some pumpkin pie spice and powdered sugar. It’s a soft frosting that’s perfect for this time of year.

Easy Chocolate Mocha Frosting - rich chocolate frosting filled with espresso!

Next up: Mocha Frosting. Now that the weather is teasing us with cooler temps, I’m craving mochas like crazy. In summer I’m all about plain coffee or Americanos because they’re not as heavy as a milk-ladder drink but now? Now I want PSL and Mochas all day long. I decided to turn my favorite coffee drink into a frosting and if you love chocolate THIS is the frosting for you.

It started off with my basic vanilla frosting recipe that I doctored with some cocoa powder and instant espresso powder. You can find the instant espresso powder at most grocery stores in the coffee aisle, but if you can’t find it you can substitute instant coffee granules. This is the perfect frosting for frosting shots, IMO, but also for a rich chocolate cupcake or brownie.

Now, if you know me well, you know that cupcakes aren’t my favorite dessert (even though I love frosting). If pie isn’t available, I’d much rather reach for cookies…and if I’m reaching for cookies I absolutely LOVE shortbread.

Not only would these frostings be great on any recipe you have in mind, but they make the PERFECT sandwich cookie filling, in case you were wondering.

Caramel Stuffed Pumpkin Cookies - this is the BEST Pumpkin Cookie recipe stuffed with chocolate caramel candies!

Oh my gosh, you guys, I almost did it again: wrote a post with no words. There are just not enough hours in the day anymore. I thought once Jordan went back to school it would be smooth sailing but nope, I’ve gotten busier. Monday starts all great with me editing my photos for the following week, inputing posts so all I have to do is write them…and then Friday hits and I remember I still have to write them.

Why am I so busy lately? VIDEO. I’ve been making tons of videos for Facebook. Have you seen any of them? I was making them for awhile last winter and then just kind of…stopped. And then I got some advice from a friend on how video is the future and blah blah blah so I made a video about frosting and pumpkin pull-apart bread and they went insane. It seems that video IS the wave of the future…a wave I have to ride if I want to succeed.

(Sometimes I want to just put on my PJs and drink wine in front of Bravo! instead of adulting. Anyone with me?)

Now that videos are the only thing that do well on Facebook, I’ve started making one for every. single. post. Hence why I keep forgetting to WRITE MY DARN POSTS.

SO. I remembered in time, instead of writing it on Sunday morning at 7am. And it’s a good thing too, because these Pumpkin Cookies are the BOMB DOT COM. You need to make them – TODAY.

The BEST easy Caramel Stuffed Pumpkin Cookies

Right? THAT GOOEY.

I started the recipe with my favorite and BEST pumpkin cookie recipe, the one I created last year. It’s so easy and is the perfect mix of chewy and soft. Then I decided to STUFF THEM WITH CARAMEL.

Yes, you read that right: I took a chocolate caramel candy and stuffed them inside the cookie. I used Dove Sea Salt Caramel because they looked good, but you can also use Rolos or Milky Way Caramels or ANY chocolate caramel candy.

The cookies bake up soft and chewy and UBER GOOEY when you bite into them. The combination of pumpkin, pumpkin spices, caramel, and chocolate is the best. I could have eaten ALL of these…but I froze them right away.

(The problem with that is that I know where they are in the freezer…sigh.)
