Chocolate & Fruit

Everyone has their own comfort foods and I’m really going to have to do a post about that soon, but tonight I’ll share one of my comfort foods. I love, love, love, a banana drizzled in chocolate. I know. Simple. Almost silly. Really though, chocolate and bananas were meant for each other. Really, chocolate and… Read more »

Cupcake Love

Rather some chocolatey- peanut buttery- frosted love.. Because you know, sometimes a girl just needs some simple dark fudge frosting whipped with peanut butter and spread atop a German chocolate cupcake.

Easy Cranberry Orange Cupcakes!

I love me some cupcakes! I mean who doesn’t love them some cute sized cakes?  These are made half scratch.

Chocolate Pie “Oh Me Oh My”

It had been a seriously long amount of time since I’d had a pie of this type. In fact I can’t pinpoint the last time. I’ve been off chocolate pies with meringue because they usually contain milk ingredients and I’d certainly never made one before.
