There’s nothing much sweeter than a mother’s love. And she deserves nothing less a sweet treat full of all her favorite sweets. That’s why this Mother’s Day, we’re hosting a Make Your Own Brownie Trifle Bar. Brownies, ice cream, whip cream, pink frosting, and a variety of chocolates and toppings layered up just the way she wants in a cute little mason jar. May your Mother’s Day be the sweetest one yet!
Brownies. We love them. We love everything about them. We love them plain. But we especially love them when they come with extras. This Saturday we’re indulging in brownies covered in Oreo pieces and hot fudge. And Heath bits too. We might even top them with a little whip cream. Thank you brownie inventor. You make our Saturdays full of sweet love.
When someone extra special has a birthday, you make sure to have an extra special birthday treat. Not only are we making birthday cake, we’re topping it with all the yumminess that of an ice cream sundae. Ice cream, whip cream, sprinkles, frosting, caramel, hot fudge, sprinkled with bits of Heath, Rolos, and M&Ms. Extra special for the win!
Make a yellow cake according to the recipe on the back of the box.
Later a jar with cake, then frosting, ice cream, whip cream in any order. Top with Rolos, Heath, and M&Ms. Celebrate!
And just like that, Halloween has come and gone. But the leftover candy bars are here to stay for just a little while longer. And our love of cake and pumpkin will be around forever. Pumpkin cake topped with mini Halloween candy bars are exactly what we need at this very moment on a Saturday in early November. Fall flavors for life!
When you are a baker and your oven decides to go kaput, you have two choices: 1) take a week off baking—which is never gonna happen or 2) use a different method. Enter the stovetop. With “her” help and a nonstick pan, our favorite oatmeal cookies will get a new spin on life. Stovetop Skillet Cookies. #winning!!!
In our opinion, it takes two ingredients to make a Friendsgiving feel really special – wonderful friends, of course, and tasty treats. This year we whipped up our favorite pumpkin poke cake substituting caramel sauce for sweetened condensed milk and a new fave – a semi-homemade Brownie Pie with Cookie Butter Glaze. It doesn’t get any simpler. It’s as easy as PIE! Happy Thanksgiving!
7. Frost with cookie butter drizzle. Easy as PIE!
- 1/4 cup smooth cookie butter
- 1 – 1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted, divided
- 3 tablespoons almond milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- In a medium bowl, beat peanut butter with electric mixture until fluffy
- Gradually beat in 1 cup of confectioners’ sugar, almond milk and vanilla. Beat until smooth and incorporated. You want the glaze to be drizzling consistency so add a bit more confectioners’ sugar and almond milk if it is too thick. A little at a time.
- Pour immediately on brownie pie.
It’s Saturday! To the apple orchard we go. We’re off to pick a bushel of sweet, delicious apples to bring home for baking up a pan of Apple Crisp Shortbread Bars. Oven and aprons ready! Can’t wait!

We’ve had a pear tree in our backyard for the past 12 years and have never ever once used them for baking. We decided this was the year we were going to change that. Thanks to Google, we educated ourselves on when best to pick our pears and how to ripen them off the tree to make them even sweeter. After a couple of weeks, our bushel of pears is finally ready. Time to get our bake on! Harvest Pear Crisp, here we come. A pair of twins sharing a pear crisp…what a sweet “pear”ing!

Buy a box of large waffle cones from your grocery store. Melt white almond bark in the microwave according to the directions on the back of the package.
