Deconstructed Caramel Apple

You might be feeling a little down about the weather this weekend so I wanted to give you something that would sweeten things up. The other weekend I was craving a caramel-like dip for apple slices.

Strawberry Cream Bars

  Happy February…are you feeling the love? I hope you are taking time out for you! Too often when the topic of love comes up, we automatically think of someone or something else.

Bacon & Egg Cups & Quiche

Who doesn’t love the weekend! Sleeping in…(even if you say you don’t really sleep in, it’s still not waking up to an early alarm clock), waking up and sipping your coffee or tea just a little longer, and then there is breakfast or brunch. There is something about breakfast or brunch that makes it just Read more…
