chocolate-dipped peanut butter cake pops

Peanut Butter and Chocolate: One of the world's most perfect combinations.

Ever since I made the Peanut Butter Cupcakes a few weeks ago, I've been thinking of
turning them into cake pops. My friend Lisa has been dying to try cake pops
ever since I discovered them on Bakerella and started making them-
so her birthday was the perfect occasion to try these out!


the perfect sunday dinner, PW style

If you know me, you probably know that I love The Pioneer Woman. Her website is an
entertaining blog that covers a variety of topics: witty commentary about life on the ranch, homeschooling
her 4 "punks", gorgeous photography and tips for beginners, and delicious recipes
with step by step instructions. My friend Jessica (who actually sent me the link to PW's site)
and I have been plotting for months to get together and cook some of the recipes from her site.
She came down to visit this weekend and we made the most delicious Sunday dinner:
Pot Roast and Potatoes Au Gratin.


mint chocolate chip cookies

This week's recipe is a simple variation on my chocolate chip cookie post. 
I love mint and chocolate together, so this seemed like a no-brainer. 
And of course, I had to add some green food coloring for St Patrick's Day! 
They might look a little funny, but they taste great!


irish car bomb brownie bites

I wanted to make something with an Irish kick for St. Patrick's Day. 
I understand that Irish Car Bombs are not really Irish...
but in my limited Americanized experience of the holiday,
the Irish Car Bomb is an essential element in the celebration of
St. Patrick's Day. (for those of legal drinking age, of course)
