Spinach and Artichoke Dip Bread Boat

After spending the weekend away in Boston for St. Patrick’s Day, I was a little mad at myself for getting absolutely nothing productive done this weekend. But I will say, I think the break from the blog and my freelance work was necessary — everyone deserves a break every once in a while. But now I’m back in the swing of things and couldn’t wait … Continue reading Spinach and Artichoke Dip Bread Boat

And it’s not because I’m … Continue reading mini peanut butter and nutella brownies

She made these super tasty Philly cheesesteak sliders that she got from Pinterest, and they were a hit with everyone. Although I didn’t ask her for the recipe, I did copy her … Continue reading Mini Philly cheesesteak sliders

chocolate candy bar pretzels

These three-ingredient pretzels are the perfect sweet treat when you’re looking for a simple dessert. They’re super easy to make and a personal favorite of mine. Feel free to mix and match the candies. My tip: don’t use anything super sticky (like Milky Way) because it won’t break up easily when you crush it. Makes 12-15 pretzels Ingredients 12-15 ounces dark chocolate 12-15 large, salted … Continue reading chocolate candy bar pretzels
