Fudgy S'mores Cookies


Summer always gets me thinking s’mores.

Just when I thought I’d finally put that delicious combination to rest (cookies, cookies again, cupcakes, and again, bark, frapp, cake, brownies), I got another idea.

Yep, it’s cookie #3 and they’re best yet!  These ones have all the wonderful flavor and texture of my chocolate M&M pudding cookies, with a punch of s’more!  These are so good that I’m making them on a weekly basis!

Happy summer!

I love summer!

It’s the perfect time for relaxing with a yummy cool treat!

My boys love popsicles, so we decided to give our own version a try.

Rich Chocolate Ice Cream #CooktheBooksClub


Today I’m sharing a delightful summery recipe inspired by The Wedding Bees by Sarah-Kate Lynch for Cook the Cooks Club, hosted this month by Simona from Briciole.

I loved this month’s book.  It is an absolutely perfect summer read!  It’s a light, happy romance (without the smut) that leaves the reader happy and hopeful!  You can get more details about the book and my full review on GoodReads.

Garlic-Lime Chicken with Corn Relish


Dude is guest blogging today with Kids in the Kitchen!

He woke up one morning (the first week of summer vacation) asking if he could be chef of the day.  He wanted to grill some chicken (or rather marinate the chicken while Hubs did the grilling).

His cookbooks didn’t have any recipes that appealed to him, so we decided to hone his google skills and find something online!  He looked at some of the ingredients in the refrigerator and went from there!

I was surprised when he decided on the corn relish, but pretty glad he went for it.  It was delicious and a hit with the whole family!

Homemade Butter #FoodNFlix



Welcome to this month’s Food ‘n Flix!  This month, participants whipped up a delicious recipe from the movie Butter, hosted by Evelyne from Cheap Ethnic Eatz.

The movie is set in Iowa, focusing on the state fair and the very competitive world of butter carving.



The movie was odd.  And kind of terrible.  And yet, strangely, I really enjoyed it.  Especially seeing Hugh Jackman cast as a bumbling used car saleman!   That alone made the movie worth it, plus general quirkiness of the whole thing.

There was an abundance of food inspiration in the movie.
