I.  Love. Sweets.  Candy, cake, cupcakes, pie, cookies, you name it!  I would rather skip dinner and go right to dessert, then go back and have dinner.  That’s how much I like sweets. I recently made some homemade candy bars as a treat to bring to work for Valentine’s Day.  These can be treats for any time of year, no special occasion needed, it just happened to be around Valentine’s Day for me 🙂  If you like to treat your coworkers (or family or friends) from time to time, I would highly recommend trying any of these recipes! First up is Homemade Snickers Bars.  These taste so similar to a Snickers bar you won’t be able to tell the different!  The nougat is soft and chewy, the chocolate is rich and melts in your mouth, and the caramel so smooth.

Halloween is fast approaching. For some, Halloween is a lifestyle and obsession, for others, it’s a day to be someone or something else.  I personally love decorating the house, buying candy to pass out to trick-or-treaters, dressing up the dog…. but mostly, I love the food!  I like to take a traditional dish and “dress it up” for Halloween.  For example, a pepperoni pizza might have the pepperoni in the shape of a jack-o-lantern.  You get the picture 🙂   This year, I have quite the spread.  It’s going to be one big Halloween celebration at our house, starting with breakfast, and ending with dinner.  Here’s what’s on the menu: Eyeball Donuts Spider Web Donuts Candy “Charcuterie” Board Eyeball Asparagus and Gruyere Tart Spider Web Loaded Potatoes Festival Feetloaf Mini Skeleton Cheesecakes   Halloween is full of candy and treats so why not start the day with something sugary?  Eyeball … Continue reading
