loaded peanut butter cookie bars

One of my favorite things to do around Halloween is to figure out a way to incorporate leftover candy in a baked good. I worry that I’ll run out of ideas for such a specific task, but so far, I love every variation. Last year I made M&M Reese’s sea salt chocolate chip cookies, the…

maple caramel sauce

I love homemade caramel. As evidence of that, you can find apple cider caramel, whiskey caramel, salted caramel, and salted caramel pastry cream here on the blog. Every time I make one I exclaim about how much I love it and wonder why I don’t make it more often. There are so many caramel possibilities,…

You guys, I woke up yesterday morning and legitimately thought it was Friday. It was such a rude awakening when I realized it was only Thursday. Needless to say, this week has felt so long. I feel like I have been going in 10 different directions trying to get ready for huge work events, prepping…
