Fill a mug or a Thermos with chai tea latte to knock the chill off on fall days. #ad #donthesitaste

I’m enjoying everything sweet about fall with Sweet’N Low® and sharing a spiked chai tea latte recipe as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #donthesitaste Yesterday as we were settling in for our nightly TV time, my husband brought me a fluffy blanket right out of the dryer. As much as I love flip-flop […]

How amazing do these look? White Chocolate Dipped Cannoli with a Strawberry Cream Filling. These take a while to prepare, but this is really an easy cannoli recipe. And they're so worth it. Plus, the shells are baked, not fried, so that means you can have more of the delicious filling, right? #GourmetGetaway #ad #WorldMarketTribe

I might have a new favorite dessert! If I had an old Italian grandmother, this is the recipe she would have handed down to me. I would have fond memories of afternoons spent in her kitchen, learning to make cannoli as she shared her wisdom along with the recipe. But I don’t have an Italian […]

Whip up a quick homemade caramel sauce, using this easy recipe, then drizzle it on everything. My favorites are these Caramel Macchiato Apple Bites, topped with crushed nuts and pretzels. The perfect salty and sweet combo.

At this time of the year, people get really excited about the reappearance of pumpkin spice everything. I love pumpkin spiced treats as much as the next gal, but there’s another flavor combo I look forward to every fall — caramel apple. Doesn’t a gooey caramel apple just remind you of childhood and fall festivals and all […]

I'm not exaggerating when I say this is the best brownie recipe I've ever tasted. A layer of browned buttercream frosting sandwiched between two layers of chocolate make these worth the time it takes to make them from scratch. #CreateDelight #IDelight #ad

“Don’t give any of these to the neighbors.” So said my husband after tasting one of these chocolate brownies. “Not even the one who let me borrow a stick of butter to make them?” “Nope.” Well, that’s mighty neighborly of you. I think he was kidding. But desserts as good as these brownies, featuring a […]

Healthy Chai Tea Cakes Recipe

When my son was a baby, I used to escape to the cafe at the nearby bookstore for a little reading, relaxation and me-time, served up with an iced chai latte and a sweet treat. Now that Jackson is older and a lot more self sufficient, I don’t feel the need as often to hand […]

This Nutty Glazed Carrot Cake is the best carrot cake recipe ever. It's so easy to make, and you'll never guess the "secret ingredient that makes it moist.

More nights than I care to admit, I send my husband a 5 o’clock text that starts out, “Can you stop by the grocery store and pick up…?” No matter how many lists I make or how meticulous I am with menu planning, I always forget some crucial ingredient at the store. Or decide at the […]
