Is there anything more decadent than a chunk of Heath toffee? Yes, there is! These cookies! I absolutely love toffee. The caramelized flavor of molasses always puts me in the mood for fall. Since fall is just around the corner, I figured it was time to whip up a batch of my toffee cookies.
Happy Fourth, y’all! For some reason, there’s nothing that gets my husband’s party bug more wound up than Independence Day. For the last several years, he’s invited over our friends, fired up the grill, and spent way too much money on fireworks. This year, we had an added bonus of a freshly installed fire pitContinue reading “Independence Day Party Inspiration”
My family has what I call birthday bunches–all of our birthdays come in pairs. This is pretty common when you have a large family, but my family isn’t that large.

I promised I would adapt (adapt being a strong word) this for milk hot chocolate, and I did! It’s getting chillier around here. Well, as chilly as it can get in Kentucky in November. But I am already in the holiday spirit of things.
Happy Halloween! It’s finally here. There are ghosts and goblins running up and down my street as I type! Leaves are crunching under foot. Jack O’Lanterns are lit. So as my last Halloween post, I decided to do an homage to my favorite Halloween movie of all time, “Hocus Pocus.” I have been watching thisContinue reading “‘Hocus Pocus’ Booook Brownies & a Drinking Game”
I absolutely love Halloween! Positively can’t get enough of it, in case you couldn’t tell by the insane number of posts I’ve been doing lately. Everything about it is fantastic–the thrills, the sugar rushes, the chilly nights. So far, I’ve made you graveyard cookies and a tombstone cupcake, but my confectionary cemetery is missing something.
