Luscious Chocolate Covered Strawberries

I happened across some delightfully sweet strawberries this last weekend.   It was all I could do to not eat all of them before they had a chance to become a part of a delicious dessert.  I had to guard them from the family, too.    They were huge, and a delicious dark red, and they smelled as good as they tasted.  I can almost smell the memory of them now…

Chocolate Fondue for Two …or Twenty

One of my favorite and fastest desserts to put together is fondue.  You can get as creative as you want with it, or just use what you have lying around in your fridge and pantry.  Chocolate fondue is my favorite dessert to whip together when I have all the girls over, or for a stay-in date night with my honey.  It takes minimal effort and hardly any time, which is nice especially when you want to spend time with your guests or your love.

Kissably Cute Hot Cocoa

I’m feeling the pressure for Valentine’s Day.  Like elementary school gotta-have-the-coolest-Valentines kind of pressure.

I wish we still had construction paper “mail boxes” for people to drop off their cute Valentines.  Except, this year, instead of cartoon Valentines, I’d step up my game, and my cuteness and make these little lovelies.

Triple Chocolate Brownie Cookies

I have a hard time baking anything that comes from a package.  Perhaps, I’m too hard on myself, but I feel like it’s bootleg baking.  Also, hardly anything from a package tastes as good or better than anything made from scratch.  I get that not everyone has the time to create love from scratch, sometimes we have to create love from a box.  This recipe is for my girlfriends that are not into baking, but find themselves needing to contribute to bake sales, birthday parties, potlucks and other random baking obligations.  That’s where this recipe comes in.  It is scrumptious, will impress your friends, and will satisfy any chocolate craving.

Buy cupcakes from the cute bakery in town, or b.) bake something from a box.  I promise!  Take the time you’ll save and grab an ice cream cone with your kid.  No guilt required!  You are an amazing, super women, and that won’t be undermined by this delicious and satisfying, super easy Tripe Chocolate Brownie Cookie recipe.  Also, no one will suspect this came from a box!  Your secret is safe with me.
