Here 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!

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!
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.
Ever 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!
Here's another sneak peek at a recipe from Everyday Confetti, the book I'll be reviewing early next week. This is a perfect one for a family gathering because not only does it feed a crowd, it can be prepared ahead.
Slightly reminiscent of a Dairy Queen ice cream cake, the taste difference won't matter so much when you factor in the price difference. For the same size cake you'd pay approximately $29.00 or so at Dairy Queen.

Things have been absolutely crazy around here the past two weeks. First my parents came to visit for 12 days and then just as they left we got hit with this massive ice storm in North Texas. And do you know what you do before you are 'iced' in for 4 days straight and you might lose power? You do some holiday baking... and then eat it! I'm so glad that when my mom was visiting she taught me how to make one of our family's traditional German Christmas recipes "NuessEcken", which literally translated means Nut Corners.
I'm still coming to terms with the fact that October is almost over - seriously how did November creep up on us so fast?! I am glad for the cooler weather though, the HOT Texas summer was a bit more intensive than I had anticipated :) And with the cooler weather that means that holiday baking is already commencing in my kitchen, and I had the opportunity to make a few things (and share them!) with Werther's Original Baking Caramels.
It's been a long time since we've done any kind of Halloween Celebrations around our home, but I'm always up for creating - and so when I had the opportunity to come up with some 'Spooky' Halloween Recipes using 7Up, Hawaiian Punch and M&M's, I was up for the challenge.
