With just a few days until Christmas, let’s talk a little about candy. I haven’t shared any candies with you this season and I’m about to change that with this super simple fudge recipe.Don’t think I haven’t made any candy, though. In the past couple of weeks I have not only made dozens of cookies, several cakes and, of course, pickled eggs, but also about 8 different kinds of candy. Which I have proceeded to eat on a daily basis. Pretty much a nightly sugar coma. Read the rest of this entry
I pickled some eggs and they are delicious so I’m going to share them with you. Or at least share the recipe. Maybe you need a last-minute gift idea for the pickle lover on your Christmas list. (That’s a thing, right?)These only need a week to pickle up and be ready to eat. You’ve got plenty of time to have a batch ready for Christmas. Read the rest of this entry

I’m mostly an all or nothing sort of girl in the food department. Read the rest of this entry
I want to revisit cherry chip cake. I haven’t made it in a few months but I am wishing for a big slice right now. Cherry season is over but this recipe only relies on maraschino cherries from a jar and they are ALWAYS in season in my world.This is a simplified version of my other cherry chip cake recipe. With the addition of the chocolate icing it mimics a chocolate covered cherry. Yummy! Need some now!
Aside from “needing” a large slice of cake right now, I have another issue in my house. Fruit flies. I have an infestation! Read the rest of this entry
