Top 10 Health Benefits (Plus Two) of Homemade Hot Chocolate

About a year ago I wrote about the health benefits of homemade hot chocolate.  Since it’s that time of year where we’re generally freezing our fingers and toes and sanity off, I thought it would be good to revisit the healthy goodness that is homemade hot chocolate. It’s nice to know something we love loves […]

Trick or Treat This

I first wrote about these cookies last year and I wanted to share them again, because they are that good.  When Boy was a kiddo, I made these filled cookies every year for Halloween. The dark chocolate color covered the spooky appeal of the holiday, and the POW! of the orange-filling spoke of jack-o-lanterns. Plus, […]

Buttermilk Cupcakes

OMT has been baking with buttermilk again, y’all.  It’s so Southern, don’t you think? When I first found this recipe, I immediately printed it out.  Then, I promptly forgot about it. I blame my peri-brain fog. When I ran across it again, I made a note of the ingredients, ran to the store for buttermilk, […]

This day I […]

Texas Chocolate Chocolate Sheet Cake

Y’all know OMT! loves her cake.  Since I had a hankerin’ (Texas-to-the-rest-of-y’all translation: a powerful neeeed) for something cakey, I went looking for a recipe and found this oldie but YUMMY: Texas Chocolate Chocolate Sheet Cake. As soon as I saw the recipe card, I was whisked back into time.  Sheet cakes were all the […]

To-Die-For Filled Chocolate Cookies

Consider these to-die-for filled chocolate cookies my obligatory Halloween post.  Wait.  I almost forgot did this one. Way back in the day, Boy and I used to make these cookies at Halloween.  They were his absolute favs.  Yet, when I sent him a text telling him that I was making them again after a hiatus […]
