Baby Cinnamon Buns I’m going to let you in on my secret for my favorite, easiest cinnamon buns ever. They’re soft, chewy, ooey, gooey, supremely buttery, and divinely sugary. And they’re a cinch to make. I take a shortcut by using storebought dough, so they can go from oven to in-my-belly as soon as humanly possible. Caroline blogs at Chocolate & Carrots, and I got to meet her (and her sweet baby bump!) Here’s my secret! First you’ll need a stick of softened butter. Now place half of that butter into the bottom of a pie plate. And stick the plate back in the microwave to melt the butter. And stir to combine. This will give the cinnamon buns that incredibly gooey, buttery crust that I absolutely cannot resist!! Now unroll the crescent roll dough… And pinch together the little seams. Anyway! And sprinkle of a beautiful mixture of cinnamon sugar. Tightly roll the dough back up, and cut into 8 perfect slices. And place into that magnificent buttery and sugary pie plate. When ready, bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Bad.

Pepperoni Pizza Puffs If I ask my kids what they want for dinner, there's a ninety percent chance they will say pizza. They love it, as most kids do. I guess I have an affection for it too, but we don't indulge too often. If I had to choose a favorite pizza, it would be the Hawaiian, but no one else in my household appreciates its flavors like I do, too bad for them. So when my kids came home from school and I had this afternoon snack waiting for them, they were pretty excited to be having pizza at 3 PM. Okay, so was I, can you blame me? These are the simplest, yummiest little bites. If you have a mini muffin pan you are good to go. Preheat oven to 375o. Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups. Microwave the pizza sauce until warmed through, then stir in 1 Tablespoon basil. Sprinkle the puffs with the remaining 1 Tablespoon basil.

Puffy Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chips I have cookie moods. Occasionally, I crave a paper thin cookie – the only kind my dad really likes – when I’m aching for dessert with a raging sweet tooth that just won’t quit. Other days, when I’m reaching for comfort and sometimes feel like eating my emotions, I look for the perfectly thick, chewy cookie, still gooey from the oven, plucked from it’s baking sheet in pieces because I lack patience. And on a rare occurrence, I want to find my cookie inside of things: ice cream, cinnamon rolls, brownies, and bars… to which I will inevitably pick out each piece of cookie so precisely that it appears they were surgically removed by a world class surgeon. This temperamental relationship I share with cookies proves just what a lunatic I am when it comes to food. Bizarre? Now you know. So… I made cookies. Many words came to mind with my first bite: warm, gooey, melt-in-your-mouth delicious, ecstasy… but before I recount a trashy romance novel for you, I gotta tell you this: they were puffy.
Triple Layer Cookies and Cream Crunch Bars After last weekend, I had a ton of Oreos to use up. I should mentioned that this was after I baked a second batch of those Oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies. Oops. I might have bought two packages.

Cinnamon Doughnut Muffins I made up these little gems this afternoon in the hopes we would have them for Sunday breakfast tomorrow morning. However, they are SO GOOD, I don’t anticipate them making it through the night. They will be devoured before bedtime. I know it. The town I live in does not sport a donut shop, can you believe that? Light, airy and just perfectly, perfect, the recipe makes nine (which is perfect for breakfast) but five have already been eaten by hungry little (and big) mouths.I just know these muffinswill be searched out through the evening. Everyone will just have to be happy with eggs for breakfast because that’s all there will be! In a large bowl,sift flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon; whisk to combine. In another bowl, combine sugar, oil, egg, and milk. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups half-full; place one teaspoon jam on top. Place melted butter in a small bowl; combine sugar and cinnamon in another bowl.
Make Your Own: Candy There’s a reason why they put all that deliciously sweet candy up by the cash registers in nearly every store: if you had to find it at the back of the place, you’d likely decide against it before you got up front to pay. But you’re an adult, and once a child sets their sights on a candy bar, there’s no turning back. Instead of worrying about all of the sketchy ingredients, extra calories, additives, and possible allergens in popular packaged sweets, here are a few recipes to Make Your Own Candy right at home. Homemade Twix Candy Bar Recipe Twix bars are the best because they come in a delightful little pair. Homemade Peanut Butter Cups Peanut butter allergies aside, it’s hard to believe anyone could deny anything that combines peanut butter and chocolate.

DIY Lollipop There doesn’t seem to be much to making a basic lollipop, which leaves the options of using natural sweeteners and dyes.
Rocky Road Brownies | A Dash of Sass I was fortunate enough to grow up within driving distance of the Happiest Place on Earth. I was even more fortunate to have the chance to work during my teen years. One of the best perks of the job was the fantastic discount on all things bought within the Park … including the homemade candy and fudge!! Along with my dear friend Josh, I would trek down Main Street to the Candy Palace and buy a tray of freshly made Rocky Road. Oh, chocolate! It has been years since I had the benefit of that discount, but when I had an opportunity to celebrate Josh’s birthday with him, I couldn’t resist a dessert that would bring back those Oh-So-Magical memories of Main Street. The original recipe called for an 8 x 8 brownie pan, something which my kitchen seems to be perpetually lacking. Let me tell you a couple things about cooking with marshmallows: (1) They are so much yummier than you remember! (2) Ignore the entire list of ingredients on the package.
