My Brownie Red Velvet Gooey S’mores Bars are fun, festive and irresistible! Perfect for Valentine’s Day!
I can not get over these brownie bars. I literally had to get them out of my house as fast as possible because there was no stopping me from munching on them all day! The bottom layer is brownie then graham cracker, chocolate chips, marshmallow, sweetened condensed milk and finally a red velvet cookie layer!
Seriously, make these. You won’t be sorry, lol!

I have no words to describe my newest cupcake. They are all of my favorite things rolled into one amazing cupcake.
Double chocolate, soft perfect cupcake with a giant mound of egg-less peanut butter cookie dough frosting with toffee chips throughout. I’m in heaven!
These would make the perfect Valentine’s Day treat for your sweetie pie if I might say so myself.
Hope you enjoy!

My Brown Butter Cinnamon Sugar Cookie Bars will make anyone’s day a little brighter!
I fell in love. With these cookie bars!!! Brown butter, sweet cinnamon and sugar, oh my!! This dough was literally deadly. I kept going back for little tastes.
Now, you will need to find some cinnamon chips. I know some grocery stores sell them, but many don’t. Keep your eyes out for them. If you are not having any luck, I found some on Amazon you can order, and trust me they are worth every penny!

I have been making pizza for a couple weeks now and cannot stop! I used to stock up on store-bought dough from Trader Joe’s like it was going out of style. I still love it, but there’s something about making your own pizza dough in your kitchen that can’t be beat!
My recipe could not be more simple to prepare. No waiting for the dough to rise, it’s literally done in about 15 minutes.
So excited for you to make your own dough for your family, not only does it taste incredible, your house smells like a dream too!

I love making soup in the winter…well actually all year long My soup is ready from start to finish in about 10 minutes.
The ultimate creamy tomato soup without the guilt. I used Greek Yogurt today for a light and fabulous soup. I topped each bowl of soup with a scoop of a simple cheesy orzo (don’t worry, it’s just a touch of cheese). Adds great texture to the soup.
Happy MLK Day! I completely forgot that the kids were out of school until late last night! Glad I didn’t take them to school
I am on a slow cooker roll lately. I am breaking it out almost every weekend and loving it. My Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Beef for Tacos has a whole 3 ingredients and seriously has the BEST flavor. Everyone who has had these can’t wait to get the recipe.
Use your favorite taco toppings, salsa, tortillas and have yourself a great taco night….with minimal prep work, yippee!
