Peanut Butter Pretzel M&M Truffle Brownies

It was brought to my attention last week that there is no brownie recipe on my site.  What?? How is that even possible?  We've known each other for quite some time now, and this is definitely something I should not be keeping from you.  The situation needed to be rectified asap, so I busted out my favorite brownie recipe, and just to make it up to you, dolled it up even more!  All I can tell you is this is one recipe worth waiting for...

Blueberry Almond Oatmeal Cookies

The other day I stumbled across some dried blueberries at the grocery store.  I was actually looking for dried cherries when I noticed this bright yellow package peeking out from behind an army of raisins.  I reached for it and saw it was wild blueberries.  Due to my need to have anything and everything blueberry, I quickly threw them in my cart, and the cherries were history.

Coconut Raspberry Bundt Cake

Can a cake be life changing?  I think so.  But then again, I'm a girl whose first love was cake.  Out of all the cakes I've tested and tasted, this one is at the top of my list.  You should also keep in mind that snagging a spot at the top of that list is not easy, but this cake hits all the right marks.

Hatching Chick Cupcakes

Don't they just make you smile?! I had originally planned to make a cake this week, and then these little gems popped in my head.  It all happened last week while I was shoe shopping.  Somewhere between picking which pair of heels would be coming home with me, I thought wouldn't it be so cute if I made hatching chick cupcakes.  Once this happens, everything else I'm doing goes out the window, even the shoes...
