White Chocolate Dipped Pretzels

White Chocolate Dipped Pretzels on the cookie sheetI’m excited about these. They are delicious, but then, I’ve always known that. Each Christmas, there is at least one get-together at which someone has these proudly displayed on their spread, and I park myself by them trying to be discreet about how many I’m eating. Not only are they delicious, they are also cute. Pinterest worthy. My treats never turned out like those. I had full dessert envy. (more…)

Apple Cider Floats

November has been gloriously warm. So much so that our local ice cream shop has decided to stay open an extra two weeks! If that isn’t something to be thankful for, I don’t know what is. Alas, this particular ice cream store is on the other side of town. A whole fifteen minutes away. When you write it, it doesn’t seem like a lot of time, but it make for an excursion with two kids. I couldn’t let this warm spell go by without proper recognition, so we added some vanilla ice cream to our cart at the grocery store. (more…)

Funfetti Banana Bread

Bananas may just be the perfect fruit for moms. They’re cheap, and they are soft enough to ease our choking hazard fears. They do, however, go bad quickly. Hence, we have a lot of banana bread in our house. It’s delicious, the girls love it, and I dislike being wasteful. This weekend, fully stocked with bananas past their prime, I decided to have a little fun with the banana bread. With the addition of honey and sprinkles, this version is a little sweeter and was a crowd-pleaser. Shamefully, we had it for breakfast and lunch both days this weekend.
