Eggless Cookie Dough for Two

One of the things I have missed eating since becoming pregnant is cookie dough. I mean, who doesn’t love licking the bowl clean after making a batch of cookies, or eating a small grabful along the way. But also I’ve missed licking out my bowls of cake batter, and brownie batter. Finally, with a little […]

Easter Bark

I know I can’t be alone in saying that I love Easter Candy. Its one of two times a year that cadbury eggs and mini cadbury eggs are available, I love whoppers – so of course I love robin eggs, starburst jelly beans and more. So when I first saw the idea for Easter Bark […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt Cake

I always have to try to one up an amazing chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting that my husband made for my birthday a couple of years ago. It was one of the best cakes I’ve ever had in my life. This year for Nate’s birthday I sent him a few cake ideas I had […]

Monster Cookies for Two

What is a monster cookie, you might ask? A monster cookie is typically a peanut butter oatmeal cookie with chocolate chips and m&ms. You can also throw in some extra ingredients too – nuts, raisins, whatever you have around the house really. I didn’t have m&ms when I made these so I decided to toss […]

Triple Berry Lemon Bundt Cake

Craig is our Costco shopper now days.  He started doing almost all the shopping about 15 months ago while I cared for my mom and the responsibility has stuck.  It is pretty easy for him because he passes about 4 Costcos on his drive home from work.  Did I tell you he drives 180 miles […]

Funfetti Cupcakes for Two

Sometimes we all need a dessert that only makes two servings. Am I right? I should be a better neighbor and share my excess desserts when I make a full batch of cookies or cupcakes, but usually I don’t. I don’t if its because I am selfish and want to eat the whole thing myself […]

Easy Fruit Smoothie

Mmm, I love smoothies. I love drinking them for breakfast, for a snack, or for a healthier dessert option. In fact, I think one of my best friend’s and I truly connected over drinking smoothies together. She and I had class together my first semester at BYU, it was a freshman English class. I hadn’t […]

Indoor S’mores Bars

I had my friend Kelly share a recipe for Indoor S’mores almost 3 years ago. Whenever I make these delicious bars I think of our time spent with Kelly and Brandon. They live in NYC now so we don’t see them very often anymore, but these bars always remind me of them. These indoor s’more’s […]

Strawberry Jam Crumb Bars (And a Giveaway!)

**I made these Strawberry Jam Crumb Bars with  free product I received and I was compensated for this post by Smucker’s as part of the Mom it Forward Blogger Network. All opinions are my own. Winter seems to last for so long here in Utah. Some years it starts as early as October and goes […]

Kumquat Chocolate Bark

This kumquat chocolate bark recipe is easy and quick to make, it just requires a little time for the chocolate to harden. Do you love kumquats?  or do you think they are way too tart?  My mom loved kumquats and would just pop them in her mouth and eat them whole.  That is one way […]

Peanut Butter Pizookie

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again – I love pizookies. Gooey, hot and delicious cookie topped with icecream. What’s not to love? Now we already have a recipe for a chocolate chip pizookie that makes 2 5-inch pizookies. Well, this recipe only makes 1 5-inch peanut butter pizookie, but its definitely enough to share. […]

Another pineapple-guava recipe for you. Trying out pineapple-guava helps me to accomplish a little bit of one of my goals for my 55 before 55 bucket list (try a new fruit or vegetable once a month). This is a creative fruit and nut bread with a combination of whatever I found in my fridge. I […]

Caramelized Pears topped with Vanilla Ice Cream

When I have previously thought of caramelized Pears I have thought of it being a long process of making caramel, and baking whole pears for a longer time until they are soft. But this dessert was so easy and quick! We had pears leftover from our Bountiful Basket from 2 weeks ago. (Bountiful Baskets is […]

Chocolate Cupcakes for Two

If you have seen any of the posts from my cookies for two series, you know I am a huge fan of small serving desserts. The greatest thing about small serving desserts for me is that I can whip up one of these desserts for two in just a few minutes and if Nate doesn’t […]
