frozen grapes

If you've never had frozen grapes, you just have to try them!! It's about the simplest YUM around.They are a perfect treat for summertime's hot days, sore throats in the winter & a little extra treat at the end of your glass of wine.

Freeze purple, seedless grapes.

How easy is that!

Chocolate Ganache Truffle Cupcakes...BEST EVER!!

Chocolate Ganache Cupcake
When we asked Nyla what type of cupcakes she wanted for her "10" birthday, she said, "Chocolate Ganache, Truffle cupcake" then I found this recipe from Pinterest.  WOW!!  

I have never tackled anything like this so you can only imagine my nervousness & hesitation as well as surprise at Nyla's response.  My girl's got awesome taste!  I'm so glad my husband is a purest when it comes to baking & loves a tasty treat. Basically, my involvement was buy the ingredients and lick the bowl.

These were soo delicious, almost everyone ate 2 of these decadent, chocolate almond, ganache & butter cream truffle cupcakes! 

Go to The Cake Blog for the complete recipe
for our inspiration cupcake, we varied it a little, (store bought chocolate cupcake mix, almonds instead of hazelnuts, plain buttercream instead of chocolate & a variety of truffles).

I often wabble back n forth with all the social media, but today I'm super happy because without it we would never have this tasty inspiration!  Thanks so much The Cake Blog, you ROCK with your super yummy recipes!

These Peanut Butter cookies are the BEST ever, no joke!! One of the greatest things about this yummy cookie is that it only has 3 ingredients!! You can bump it up to 4 ingredients by throwing in a little left over Halloween candy or butterscotch chips.  I used crunched up Butterfingers but I'm sure any chocolately candy will do. 

This is my quick, go to recipe when I'm craving something sweet & easy, I betcha it will be yours too :)  I had these last night & just had to share this recipe again!  They got gobbled up soo fast, I couldn't even take a picture, so here you can see them with the butterscotch chips.  If you love peanut butter then these are the

Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever!
