Frozen Mint Chocolate Pie

Remember last week when I said that I wanted to say goodbye to summer with some super easy 3-ingredient DIY Ice Cream? Well, apparently I lied. Sorry not sorry. I just couldn’t get over how simple it was to make—I wanted to see if it was possible to do even more with it. Say, like make my very own frozen grasshopper pie! As you can see, it was very successful. The ice cream, loaded up with crushed mint chocolate cookies,[Read more]

DIY Ice Cream Party! No Machine Needed

Hello, everyone! I thought I’d check in and share one last quick summer dessert recipe. As you may have seen on the news, we just had a pretty big hurricane here in Houston, Texas, but we were lucky to get through it relatively unscathed. We had a wee bit of water come up through the floor in one area of our living room, but it could have been worse. Much worse.  The end of August always sneaks up on me,[Read more]

Banana Pudding Trifle

Hey…um…hey guys. Remember me? I know. I’ve been gone forever! It’s been a remarkable journey. I pissed off the edge of the wall, I slept in a sky cell, I fought with the hill tribes! So many adventures. So much to be thankful for. Okay, that was actually Tyrion Lannister. But if you’re not in Game of Thrones mode right now, what is wrong with you? In actuality, I’ve been super busy redecorating our house! The good news is that[Read more]

White Chocolate Cheesecake Tart

So let’s see. Right now I’m staring at twelve gallons of paint that I neatly set up against a wall. I’m leaving for a week-long trip tomorrow morning, so coming home to cans scattered all over the place wouldn’t be my idea of a good time! In the last week or two I’ve painted: 2 hallways, 2 bathrooms (one of them twice), my kitchen, dining room, bedroom, and two guest bedrooms. If that wasn’t enough, I also painted a side[Read more]

No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Here it is, guys. My first recipe of 2017. Peanut. Butter. Pie. Or as I like to call it, “the reason why I already broke my New Years resolution.” 😛    Look dude, you can’t really blame me for this. I wanted to make a peanut butter dessert all summer long but talked myself out of it because summer is supposed to be “light” and “airy” and incorporate a buttload of berries. Well, it’s winter now. And my thighs want[Read more]

Quick Gingerbread Nutella Truffles

Hello friends! How is everyone’s week going so far? This is going to be a quick-ish post because I need to do some prep baking for tomorrow. We’re having our little annual Christmas party with our neighbors and I want to try and slay with a show stopping dessert. Except I’ve never made the thing I’m planning to make and this is probably a horrible time to attempt it. You know me. 😛 Other than stockings my favorite part of Christmas[Read more]
