Cookie dough smore ice cream cake

Failed recipes?  That is the question that I receive a lot from family and friends.  I’d say 80% of the time I succeed first time on the recipe and then there are others that fail miserably.  I either try to correct those recipes or they get tossed to the side because I get frustrated...

Cheeseburger gnocchi

If you follow me on Instagram you would have noticed that I was vacationing in Santa Fe, NM for an EARLY anniversary trip with my hubby.  We had an amazing trip allowing us to eat, shop and site see through the gorgeous artsy town.  Typically when I get home from a trip its after...

Cinnamon sugar pretzels

Comfort food.  Most of the time I sit and ponder on how my post will start.  This is all about complete comfort food and how AWESOME these cinnamon sugar pretzels taste.  For the past week I’ve been on this serious cinnamon kick and I can’t seem to get enough of this highly addicting spice....
