Twinkie Brownie Bars Recipe #TwinkieCookbook #MC


Growing up golden sponge cakes filled with cream 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 package of them. 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.

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?

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!

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.
