Grown Up Smores

Though I like the taste of smores, I never make them.  The chocolate doesn’t melt like I want it too and my marshmallows always catch on fire.  And if you are making them over a campfire then you are going to have goo everywhere.  Or maybe I’m just messy !  I have been eating marshmallow […]

The best Giant M&M Cookies ever !

I made these cookies […]

Strawberries & Cream Pie Cookies

I’m not a huge fan of  pie in general but I do love those fried pies, especially the ones filled with coconut or chocolate.  I think I like them so much because of the proportion of crust to filling.  But  you know what’s better than fried pies?  Pie Cookies !  These little treasures of flaky […]

My first batch was Banana Treats.  They turned out so good that I decided to try a different flavor.   I found several recipes using strawberry marshmallows.  I purchased the marshmallows and thought they were good […]


I have several boxes of Rice Krispies  in my stockpile so I pulled one out and decided to make rice krispies treats.  I try not to make them too often because I could sit down and eat the whole thing.  Seriously….I could cut it into two giant pieces and say I only ate two bars.  […]

Potato Chip, Pecan, Toffee Cookies
