Mixed Caramel Rum Nut Butter

I think it is pretty safe to say that 2014 was the year of the butters. Cookie butter, nut butters, you name. Grind it up and call it butter. I’m ok with this.

But as usual I’m pretty late to the party. Here I am, half a month away from 2015, and finally I produce some sort of butter. Good job me.

Better late than never right?

Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles

Oh chocolate. Is there really anything better? After a long day of work or school nothing can soothe the soul better than a big piece of chocolate. Or two.

In any of it’s many forms chocolate is always good. Chocolate cake, chocolate pudding, and of course chocolate truffles. Rich and decadent, truffles are just a great little pick me up anytime of day. Small enough to not leave you stuffed and tired, but rich enough to give you that little chocolate fix you crave.

Enjoy!

Steak and Potato Pie Pockets

 This recipe really isn’t much of a recipe…. I like to call it more of put what you got into a pie crust and enjoy. I think that’s a better fitted name.

Guinness Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

It is done. The spring semester of 2014 is officially over and you have no idea how happy I am.

 Of course, that’s not to say I didn’t have fun this semester. I did. I didn’t have any professors that I just could not stand and the classes I had, well besides algebra and speech, were really fun. This semester involved lots of sugar, lots of steaks, and lots and lots of butter. Does that sauce need anything? Butter. Need to kick up your cake some? Add butter. Butter is the answer.

I’m pretty sure my arteries are glad this semester is over as well.

 Aside from eating way more delicious foods than I should have, I should mention that I also killed a lobster for the first time. The entire time the only thing I could think of was “Lobster killer…. lobster killer… lobster killer…” Julie & Julia anyone? And yes, I really did feel bad. For a person who doesn’t eat just a whole lot of meat, it’s hard. For my justification though he was very delicious and will always be remembered by me. R.I.P. little buddy.

Ignore my demented smile in the picture, I’m not evil I swear.

Anyway, now for these cookies. Recently a friend of mine turned 21 and so I decided to make some guinness cookies. It’s only fitting right? I was a little disappointed with the subtlety of the guinness flavor in the cookie, I think next time I’ll add more or reduce the guinness down to give it a stronger flavor, but aside from that these cookies are addicting. Soft, chewy, and very chocolatey. I would definitely make these cookies again.

Enjoy!

Pimento Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are a pretty southern appetizer. Pimento cheese dip is also a pretty southern appetizer. So what happens if you put them together? All of the south will come knockin’ at your door.

Chocolate Coconut Almond Granola

I think I need a little variety.

I posted two eggs dishes in a row and now I’m posting two coconut dishes in a row. The horror.

Five Layer Dip

Coming from a background of being a completely socially awkward homeschooled girl, it amazes me how far I have come in the social world. In all seriousness, most people don’t even think I was ever homeschooled when they meet me because I can actually talk to them. It’s crazy.

S’mores Doughnuts

Who like’s firehouse subs? If you do keep reading!
Now let’s go back in time for a moment shall we?
Back to a time far far away before I got the hang of food blogging…
Psh, who am I kidding we could be talking about yesterday. I still have no idea what i’m doing when it comes to blogging. Half the time my pictures look horrible, and my ramblings make no sense, but hey I try.
