Dark Chocolate Cherry M&M Cookies

We had an open house over the weekend to bring some more interested buyers into our home and hopefully spark a sale.  Prepping the house each time a potential buyer wants to come see it has become a nuisance, but we are keeping out fingers crossed that we will find someone to buy our home.  So I didn't have much time for baking, but I was in the mood for something chocolaty and  I found a bag of Cherry M&M's at Target the other day that I have been dying to try.  Chocolate and cherry cookies seemed like a great idea.

Chocolate Raspberry Rice Krispie Treats

I found these great new Hershey's Raspberry Hugs at Target the other day.  They are milk chocolate kisses hugged by a raspberry flavored white cream.  Hmmm? Chocolate and raspberry?  Why, yes I took a bag home.  I was smart enough not to open the bag till I was ready to bake with them.  As soon as it was open the little vultures that reside in my home were circling the kitchen waiting for me to throw them some.  My two year old really liked them.  He kept asking for more "chocoleelee".  That is what he calls chocolate.  Most of his other words he enunciates very well, but it's cute when he mispronounces some.

Almond Shortbread Cookies

#almond #shortbread #cookies
I was in the mood for shortbread cookies the other day.  I found this recipe for Easy Shortbread Cookies.  It's really is easy and it only has 4 ingredients.  Of course I added my own spin on it.  I rolled them in sugar and turned them into thumbprint cookies and added some preserves.  Oh, and I also changed the flavor to almond.

Pie Pops


I bought a new toy the other day.  A pie pop maker.  Because of course my mini donut maker, mini whoopie pie maker, and cake pop maker were not enough to fill up my pantry.  I found the Bella Pie Pop maker on clearance at Target and couldn't resist.  I only went in to get some cute striped paper straws and came out with a hand cart full of stuff.  I guess I should be happy it wasn't a shopping cart full of stuff.  Target just has too much cute stuff.  They get me every time.

Maple Apple Muffins


My 6 year old daughter had been begging all last week to bake something.  She wanted to make some apple cupcakes.  She took out a page of her recipe book and wrote down all the ingredients and handed it to me.  When I asked her how much of each ingredient, she didn't have an answer.  So I had to explain to her that recipes are not just about ingredients, they are all about measurements.  So she started pulling out her measuring spoons and put one next to each ingredient.  It was really cute, but then I had to explain to her that when you don't know what you are doing, it is best to start with a base recipe and adapt it from there.

No Bake Mochaccino Cookies

I was supposed to share this recipe last week, but things got super busy.  Hubby and I received notice for some new showings on our house, so we were scrambling around getting the house clean and doing some redecorating.  We keep crossing our fingers that our house will sell soon.  The sooner it sells, the sooner we can move to warmer weather.

Pumpkin Dulce de Leche Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy New Year!!!  Another year gone.  Where did it go?  I would like it back, please. When I was little it took FOREVER to get to the next year, but now as I get older the years seem to be flying by.  It's not fair.  We need to boycott this madness.  Someone needs to invent a machine to slow down time a little.  I feel like I didn't even have time to enjoy the past year.  Hopefully, this year will be different.  Time for a change.
