Peanut Butter Banana Icebox Cake

I am notorious for trying out new recipes on guests.  I know they say not to do that, and it makes sense…what if it’s a total flop?  But I just can’t help myself.  So we were having some friends over for dinner a couple of weeks ago, and I was looking for a new idea […]

Peanut Butter Pretzel M & M Cookies

Hi, my name is Cara, and I am addicted to peanut butter.  I’m not ashamed of it.  I own it.  If you leave it to me, all baked goods will have peanut butter in them.  And chocolate.  And sometimes banana. So anyway, cookies.  These are a really delicious balance of sweet and salty, with the […]

Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

These muffins are amazing.  In fact, they are so delicious, I think you could almost call them cupcakes.  I know muffins are for breakfast, but I have no shame in admitting I’ve eaten them for dessert.  The bananas and chocolate go so well together and the cinnamon and nutmeg add a bit of warmth.  My […]
