S’mores Brownies {Sundays with Joy}

smores brownies 4 words

{Yeah. I'm a little late. It's Tuesday, not Sunday. Life. Whatcha gonna do?} It became uncomfortably apparent to me a few weeks ago that I am one of those people. You know, the kind that "pack" for a trip to the store. {In my defense, the store was Wal-Mart. Which means at least two hours. And I was going to the gym first.} It started out innocently enough, with my list. A full sheet of notebook paper. Then I needed to get my gym bag ready. Wallet, book, water, socks for Jordan so she can play in the playscape and I don't have to hear about how she "couldn't play with her friends and it was the WORST DAY EVER" because she was in flip-flops. But, since I hate going anywhere sweaty, I needed a change of shirt. And my own … {continue reading}

Butterscotch Pecan Pies

I think I have a new sport I'd like to add to the Olympics: Dough Rolling.Contestants would compete in events like the Sugar Cookie Dash, Pizza Dough Sprint, and Pie Crust Speed Race.Not only would baker-letes be judged on time, but on skill and form as well. Scoring would include three parts: speed (out of 5 points), difficulty (a range increasing with additional skill), and execution (out of 10).If you manage to roll 15 mini pizzas in 30 seconds, you'd get a really good speed score.If you could roll and cut 5 dozen sugar cookies lickety split, without any additional flour, you'd get high marks for difficulty.And if you managed to line a pie plate with the perfect crust, no rips, tears, or thin spots, execution would get you a perfect … {continue reading}

Peanut Butter Fudgsicles and Nectresse

peanut butter fudgsicles 3 words

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of NECTRESSE™Sweetener for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. It's no secret that I love sugar. Um, all you have to do is read any of my posts to know that! And as much as I love a sweet treat all the time once in awhile, I know it's important to limit how much sugar I eat. I mean, bathing suits don't wear themselves you know. This is why I always use sugar substitute in my coffee. And on cereal. And in whatever I can to easily reduce the calories, because I know I'm going to eat seven brownies after dinner. There's really no fighting that. When Nectresse offered to send me a sample of their no calorie sweetener, I was excited to try it. I must say, I am really picky about … {continue reading}

Sugar Cookie Bark

sugar cookie bark

  This sugar cookie bark is a combination candy and cookie dough - and will curb your sweet craving for sure! I bet that, if you're a blogger, I could say the name of an ingredient and you could immediately spout at least five things to make with it. Like, if I shouted "REESE'S PEANUT BUTTER CUPS!" in a room at a food blogger conference I would immediately get responses like: Stuffed Cupcakes! Stuffed Cookies! Pudding! Pie! Cheesecake! Ice Cream! Rice Krispie Treats! Truffles! Am I right? It would be like brainstorming gone mad. But what about when the ingredient is the dessert? Makes it a little harder. Like, for example, sugar cookies. When I think "sugar cookie," I think cute designs … {continue reading}

Deep-Fried Fluffernutter Sandwich

Can you believe I've never had a fluffernutter sandwich? I've never even had peanut butter and marshmallows together.*Gasp*I mean, I know I've got some strange eating habits (read: super pickiness) and there are a lot of things I've never tried (like brussel sprouts, beets, sushi, and kale).But a dessert I've never tried? Blasphemy!So when I received a copy of The Busy Mom's Cookbook by Antonia Lofaso and started flipping through the recipes, the deep-fried fluffernutter sandwich totally caught my eye. Finally! A reason to try marshmallow-banana-goodness.You know who Antonia is, right? She was on Top Chef! I was SO excited to get my hot little hands on a copy of her book.
