Candied Cashews

"These candied cashews are perfect for those cold and chilly days." Once upon a time I went to New York City. Whilst there I had to have a bag of candied nuts from one of the venders on the street. That was the day my life forever changed. Now I normally don't like cashews all too much, but there's just something about them being roasted with sugar and cinnamon that makes them that much more delightful. I'm not sure if the street carts are there year round or only when it starts getting cooler. Read more [...]

4 Ingredient Muffin Tin Rolls

"These muffin tin rolls are an easy crowd pleaser." 4 ingredients, no joke! You don't even need to knead! If that doesn't win you over right there, I don't know what will. When I first saw these rolls on the Paula Deen website I got excited, but then I looked at the ingredients. To make her rolls she used mayo. To be completely honest with you guys, mayo freaks me out. I know I wouldn't have been able to taste it or whatever but I just couldn't do it. I needed to find a way to replace that mayo Read more [...]

Apple Pie Pinwheels | Sundays Made Simple

I seem to be really enjoying mini desserts these days. Friday I shared my recipe for cookie dough cups, which also happen to be mini. I have a love/hate relationship with mini desserts. In my head I think, "it's mini so it's not so bad for me." Then I actually eat my first one and think, "one is just not enough."  One of these apple pie pinwheels is no where near enough. If you try one, you might as well just eat the whole batch (I won't tell). If you could imagine eating an apple pie, without Read more [...]

Cookie Dough Cups

Sometimes we all just need something simple. A recipe that is perfect, but simple. My boyfriend eats peanut butter cups like it's his job (it's actually kind of sickening), but a peanut butter cup doesn't satisfy my sweet tooth. I wanted something that had a crunch, something with a filling that didn't make me want to drink a gallon of water. And so, cookie dough cups were born. If you could eat a cookie dough filled chocolate cup, would you? Who wouldn't? These take almost no time to make. The Read more [...]

So Pinteresting #2 | Apple Recipes

The other day I asked my boyfriend a "simple" question. "If you only had $5 to spend for a week, what would you buy to survive?" Now, this question really isn't that easy but he came back with a response pretty quickly. His answer was, "apples." Now if you didn't know, last year we went apple picking. For $5 we were able to fill a basket with as many as we could, we probably could have fit more in but we weren't being too greedy. We ended up leaving the orchard with around 37 apples. Now if Read more [...]

Apple Crumble Cake

If you ever wondered what it would be like if you stuffed apple pie inside of a coffee cake, this recipe is it! When I first came across this recipe, I knew I had to make it and share it with you. Cake, crumble, and apple pie all in one. This apple crumble cake is one of the best apple recipes I have ever made. At first glance it seems lengthy and time consuming but it really isn't all that difficult to put together. It's mostly just a waiting game. I would wait a year for this apple crumble cake, Read more [...]

Caramel Spice Cake Popcorn

Boy do I have a treat for you today. I've been seeing a lot of recipes for crazy and unique popcorn snacks. I saw one the other day that included rice krispies, yum! I wanted to make my popcorn shout the flavors of autumn. Vanilla, spice cake, and caramel are all of the flavors wrapped around each bite of popcorn. The only thing unenjoyable about this cake popcorn is that you eventually run out... so you may want to make a double batch (just to be safe). This fall treat will have everyone wanting Read more [...]
