Apples are in season and I’ve been searching for new ways to enjoy them.  But, no matter where I look, my homemade caramel sauce is still my favorite (although there are a few other tasty ways I’ve found that I’ll share soon!).  Warm caramel is a tasty treat with fresh cut apples or poured over [...]

Homemade Chocolate Syrup… SOOO Good!

Chocolate Syrup

I told you last week that I was searching for a replacement for my Hershey’s chocolate syrup.  It has High Fructose Corn Syrup … a deal breaker for my whole food pantry/fridge makeover.  I’m trying my best to find replacements for the last few bad guys hanging out in my fridge and pantry.  I’ve recently [...]

This dish is sooo easy, and great for lots of get togethers. I’ve had it at baby showers and also as a side dish along with soup. It can be served with a meal or as dessert! And, this is one “salad” everyone will love – even those picky “I don’t eat rabbit food” party [...]

Recipe: Simple Chocolate Cinnamon Mousse with Raspberry Sauce


Every now and then I like to make dessert as a treat after a special day, particularly rough day, or just because.  But, usually dessert is an after thought while I’m making dinner and I realize I’ve got a few spare moments.  I don’t really have time {or the energy} to bake a cake and [...]
