Homemade Pretzels (Almost Auntie Anne’s!)

My Sunday baking continues. Major hit this week from a Pinterest find that led me to YammiesNoshery.com and her copycat recipe for Auntie Anne’s  pretzels. It’s a little dangerous to have this recipe to be honest. If you can’t find me, I’ll be in a homemade pretzel induced food coma in the corner from over-indulgence!

Mint Chocolate Brownie Bites

Mint Chocolate Brownie Bites

A beloved flavor combination, these mint chocolate brownie bites are as delicious as they are cute. My all-time favorite dessert flavor combination is chocolate and mint (followed closely by chocolate and peanut butter).

Cereal Scotcheroos {Chex + Cheerios}

Use cereal you have on hand and combine with this classic scotcheroo recipe (straight from my grnadma!). I used Chex and Cheerios for these favorite cereal scotcheroos.

I ordered some fabric swatches and they’ve come in the last few days.  The cabinets are a dark espresso color and the

Random Decor: wish I had a spot for this!

Do you ever run across home decor items and love something but have no real purpose for it? That’s what happened when I was at World Market the other day and ran across this giant wall art ampersand with a map print on it. I don’t really have a spot for it in my home

Penne Mac & Cheese with Chicken

Penne Mac & Cheese with Chicken

You won’t see food posts that often here. While I like to bake, I’m not very skilled when it comes to meal planning. To be honest, I just feel like I never have enough time to plan ahead. Since I was off work this last week though, I decided to try some new things. I

Painting Bathroom Cabinets

Painting Bathroom Cabinets

Each year I take off the week between Christmas and New Year’s from work, and each year I generally try to tackle a home project. One year I organized my basement (wish it would have stayed that way!), and last year I repainted my bathroom cabinets from honey oak to a dark espresso color and
