Twinkie Brownie Bars Recipe #TwinkieCookbook #MC

Twinkie-Brownie-Bars-#MC-#TwinkieCookbook.jpg

Growing up Twinkies were a huge treat that were only available to us at Grandma's & Grandpa's house.  We'd help around the yard, in the kitchen and with various odd tasks, and then we'd get some money to head to the corner store to buy 'dessert' for after the dinner meal.  When it was my turn to choose, I'd always get a box of Twinkies.  Every time I take a bite of a Twinkie I relive those memories of simpler times.

Grilled Cocoa Pebbles Banana S'mores

S'mores are a favorite summer treat for most everyone, but if you want to switch it up a bit, a great way to do it is to add a banana to the mix.

Now I'm a big fan of bananas in any way, shape or form, but if you've never had grilled bananas before the texture might take a while to get used to.  The bananas do get soft, especially if they are at peak ripeness, plus as you probably know bananas get brown when they get warm.

Summer's Best K Cup Flavors in 2 Easy to Make Recipes

Donut Shop Coffee Trifle with Keurig Brew Over Ice #shop #BrewItUp #BrewOverIceWhen my friends say "let's meet up for coffee," what they really mean is "let's meet up at Tammy's house."  You see I've got my very own built in coffee bar in my house, and I'll play 'barista' for anyone who wants to share a cup with me :)  You name it, I have it, and my coffee machine collection includes not just one, but two Keurig brewers.  When I have guests in summer I replace the hot beverage concoctions and brew iced coffee, iced tea and low calories drinks, over ice.  And yes I do that with my Keurig!

Party Fruit Salad Recipe

party-fruit-saladThis northern girl is LOVING that the heat of summer is in full swing here in Texas.  One of the things I've been loving about living here is the abundance of fresh produce available all year long and most of it is sold at reasonable prices.

We've been eating our fair share of fresh fruit around here.  We love eating watermelon, peaches, pears, bananas, strawberries..well you get the idea. You know what I don't love though?

20 Oh My Yum! Frozen Desserts That are SO Fun!

Anyone that knows me, knows that I LOVE ice cream.  Summer, Winter, makes no difference to me, if it's frozen and tasty - I'll eat it no matter the weather.  But here in North Texas where the Hot! Hot! Hot! starts in June - frozen desserts all summer long is where it's at!

At any rate, I put together a collection of  20 Frozen Dessert Recipes on Foodie.com that I want to make.   Some of these I've already made & approve and are right here on my blog, some are from other bloggers and some from mainstream websites.  Maybe you'll find one you want to make for Father's Day for your dad or husband!  Check them out and tell me which ones you're most interested to try.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Chocolate Peanut Butter CookiesHere is a chocolaty twist on a traditional favorite peanut butter cookie.  The cookies will come out of the oven flatter than you would expect, but the insides stay chewy and the outer edges are crispy - the perfect texture combination to the sweet & salty of the chocolate and peanut butter!

Homemade Spring Chocolate Covered Graham Crackers

I think spring has FINALLY sprung here in North Texas!  April 'springs' with events for us this year too.  First our 20th wedding anniversary, then Easter, and then our daughter's 18th birthday.  And if there is anything in the world my husband and daughter can't get enough of, it's chocolate.  So when Good Cook sent me their new Sweet Creations Spring Bark Mold and Hop Into Spring Spatula, I immediately had anniversary treats, Easter basket goodies and birthday sweets in mind...using chocolate of course!

Strawberry Banana Summer 'Soup' & Ice Pops

Strawberry Banana Summer "Soup"

Oh yes, I do have summer on the brain!  I'm perfecting my cool, refreshing recipes for the hot Texas summer.  After getting 2 lbs. of fresh strawberries on sale at the grocery store the other day, I was in full on experimental mode in the kitchen.  I wanted to create a dessert that would finish off a grill out that would be light but still pack a flavor punch.  I think I achieved that, I even made a 'kid' version by freezing it in plastic cups for ice pops.

Peanut Butter Nutella S'mores

Peanut Butter Nutella S'moresEver have one of those days where you want to be creative but also just want to stay home?  I had one of those not too long ago.  I wanted to make something a bit different for my family using stuff I already had at home.  Spying a tube of peanut butter cookie dough in the fridge I headed to the pantry to see what I could add to it. 

Remembering a tip from the book Everyday Confetti about making these with bananas while camping, I ended up coming out of the pantry with a jar of Nutella and a bag of marshmallows, which ended up becoming Peanut Butter Nutella S'mores. Yum!
