Salted Peppermint Bark

I’ve been on a real Williams Sonoma kick recently. I mean, I’ve always loved their stuff, but recently I’ve been unable to stop myself from making a purchase every single time I walk through the door.  It started when I went in early November and they were giving out samples of the most delicious stuffing and gravy that I have ever tasted! So good that we had to buy both products.  We also got to sample THREE types of peppermint bark: regular peppermint bark, dark chocolate peppermint bark, and salted peppermint bark.

Bourbon Pumpkin Pie

We’re right in the midst of the chaos that is the holiday season! It is such a fun time of year, but I always feel like I’m falling behind on everything! Which is why I am here, in December, after you’re probably all burnt out on pumpkin pie, to bring you a brand new pumpkin pie recipe!  Now I know it’s more of a Thanksgiving dessert, but today is a very special occasion for which this recipe would be perfect…not that Pie Thursday wouldn’t be a winning idea!

Campfire Treats

Campfire S'mores Brownie Pies on the fire

Earlier this summer my husband discovered a spot in the middle of nowhere New Hampshire to unplug, disconnect, and refresh.  With everything we have going on I was hesitant to book a reservation, but there was only one weekend left with openings for the summer so we did it.  YOU GUYS.  I cannot recommend this enough.  We went to a place called Getaway House. They have locations outside of Boston, New York, and D.C. and it is worth every single penny.

It is so easy, only 4 ingredients, and super delicious!  Continue Reading


Cinnamon Toast Crunch Puppy Chow

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Puppy Chow

Living in New England, I continuously discover things that are local or regional to my hometown in Kentucky. Recently I discovered that people here are not familiar with Puppy Chow.  Or, I should say, they’re not familiar with the name “Puppy Chow” for the chocolatey, peanut buttery, powdered sugary, addictive treat.  They call it by other names, but when I refer to Puppy Chow they all think I’m crazy.
