Chocolate S’mores Pie

Chocolate S'mores Pie

A few weeks ago we spent the week with all of our kids enjoying the Oregon Coast and our home in Manzanita. Of course the best part of the week is getting to spend time with these crazy kids! Man, I love them and miss them like crazy already! It was a glorious week full of lots game playing, golfing, kayaking, beach time, amazing sunsets and s’mores!  One of our favorite things to do at the beach is to head down there before sunset, build a fire, play some games [Continue Reading…]

Inside Out S'more Brownies

One of my weaknesses during the holiday season is all the holiday baking magazines that come out.  Over the years I have acquired quite a collection. Usually there are 2-3 recipes that really stick out to me that I want to try but this year I purchased a copy of 100 Best Cookies from BHG and it was like hitting the jackpot.  So many amazing cookies.  Lots of dog eared pages in this magazine. One of the first ones I had to try was today’s recipe for Inside Out S’more [Continue Reading…]

The perfect picnic requires only things:   A cute picnic basket, a pretty picnic blanket/tablecloth, delicious food. Thanks to a little help from World Market [Continue Reading…]

Chocolate Covered Peep Bouquet and Peep S’mores


So I am a Peep lover.  Since I was a little girl my favorite Easter candy has always been Peeps.  As any experienced Peep connoisseur knows, Peeps are best eaten after they have dried out for a few days.  It makes them oh so nice and chewy. But a close second to a dried out Peep is a chocolate covered Peep! Last year I went a little crazy and started covering all kinds of Easter goodies in chocolate. There were Peeps, Oreos and Gummies.  They were so yummy I had [Continue Reading…]

S’more Cookies


I was having a bit of a chocolate craving on Sunday. Although I like chocolate I usually will choose another flavor over chocolate but on Sunday the only flavor that would satisfy was chocolate.

Well what is one of the first things that comes to mind when you think of chocolate [Continue Reading…]
