These cookies are sort of like a shortbread cookie with toffee bits and they are absolutely delicious!

Candy Cane Peppermint Sugar Cookies

These candy cane cookies would be a lot of fun to take to a Christmas party and the peppermint flavor gives them a fresh and light flavor! Start by making some basic sugar cookie dough with a bit of peppermint extract:

Homemade Pumpkin Butter

Thanksgiving is in just a few days and it makes me want to add pumpkin to everything! Shelby made this pumpkin butter for his dad's birthday and it is so delicious, I can't wait to make another batch!

Grandma's Lemon Lush

This recipe is kind of like the one for Chess Cake: it has been around for decades and lots of people make it but call it by a different name. I got this one from my grandma and the name is a little misleading because you can actually make it with any pudding flavor you want. She always made lemon because it was grandpa's favorite. It is also amazing with chocolate which I have seen some people call Chocolate Cream Cheese Delight. Someone else made it with coconut cream pudding and called it Texas Delight. We aren't from Texas though so I thought about calling it Southern Delight but in the end I decided to go with my grandma's "Lemon Lush".

Cake Batter Cookies

A couple of months ago I tried a recipe for cake batter cookies that included pudding mix. They were okay but I thought the pudding made them taste overly processed so I continued searching. This recipe turned out to be exactly what I was hoping for! Full of cake batter flavor but in cookie form. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE this cake batter craze? :)

Eggnog Fudge

Two of my favorite holiday treats - eggnog and fudge - together in one recipe?! Shut the front door! This fudge is definitely one of my new Christmas favorites. I hope you like it too.

Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Oatmeal raisin cookies are one of my husband's favorites but I have to admit that in our eight years together this is the first time that I have ever made him any. I never really liked them because I prefer super soft cookies and it seemed like they were always kind of crunchy. So I decided that it was time to look for a new recipe. I did a search for *chewy* oatmeal cookies and saw one that caught my eye. It was from The Girl Who Ate Everything and I have tried a few of her recipes before that they were all amazing! This recipe is no different. They are large, chewy, bakery-quality cookies. I think I have eaten more of them that my husband has!

Creepy Cake Ball Lab Rats

I was playing around with an idea for some Halloween party food yesterday...

Cake ball lab rats that have escaped from a mad scientist's laboratory! Or mice. Whichever you want to call them.

Pumpkin Spice Werewolf Kibble

The traditional version of this is often called puppy chow or muddy buddies. Since Halloween is approaching I am calling this awesome pumpkin spice version werewolf kibble. You could also go with graveyard gravel or something like that. Whatever you want to call it, this stuff is highly addictive. I am going to be really disappointed when the pumpkin spice kisses are no longer available.

Orange Creamsicle Fudge

This awesome fudge tastes just like a creamsicle! The orange and white marbled color makes it great for a Halloween treat too. The original recipe said to put it in a 13 x 9" pan but I thought it came out a little thin so next time I will probably use the 9 x 9" pan that I usually put fudge in. Other than that, I love this recipe!

Baked Apples

Once September rolls around, I have to break out the apple recipes. It just isn't fall without them. First up were some baked apples on pancakes since that is my favorite thing to order from Cracker Barrel. It took three tries but I finally came up with a recipe that I really like! These would also be awesome on some vanilla ice cream or you can just eat them with a fork. YUM!

Cake Batter Truffles

Fellow cake batter lovers - rejoice! It is time for another batter infused recipe and this one is even better than the last. These little truffles are easy to put together and highly addictive. Next time I make them I am going to have to send most of them to the office with Shelby because I couldn't stop eating them. They have all the flavor of cake batter with the texture and richness of sugar cookie dough. Delish.

Cake Batter Crispy Treats

I know I'm a little behind on the cake batter trend but I don't care. Cake batter is one of the best flavors and I am so happy that it is being incorporated into all kinds of awesome desserts. :) Plus, it means that you get to use sprinkles and everything is more fun with sprinkles!

Orange Soda Cupcakes

Soda pop cupcakes were the first thing that Shelby ever cooked for me. We were still "just friends" at that point and he apparently had a huge crush on me so he may have been attempting to woo me with his mad baking skills. ;) If I remember correctly, he made them with Fufu Berry Jones Soda that night. 

After making these using a bunch of different flavors, we have decided that orange soda is our favorite. It has the most flavor and is something that you don't hear of everyday. You can use any flavor of pop that you like though and try mixing it with different cake flavors like chocolate cake mix with root beer.

Fresh Strawberry Pie

This strawberry pie recipe came from my husband's family. We accidentally altered it once and we liked it even better so we kept the changes. It is a great retro treat on a hot summer night!

Beer Batter Maple Bacon Cupcakes

My husband and I were watching an episode of 2 Broke Girls the other day and when they made their Spring Break Beer Batter Maple Bacon Cupcakes we both decided that it was something that we had to try.

Snickerdoodles are my husband's favorite so these never last long.  They are perfectly buttery and chewy...and highly addictive.  : )

Safe To Eat Sugar Cookie Dough

I always loved eating cookie dough as a kid.  However, as I have gotten older my fear of food poisoning has curbed my desired to eat anything with raw eggs.  So I was thrilled when I found this recipe for safe cookie dough.  Now I can eat to my heart's content with my only fear being a sugar overdose!
