Halloween Graveyard Oreo Brownies

bestgravyard

 BOO!   How cute is he?? I am a firm believer that Halloween should be reserved for friendly ghosts, Glinda the Good Witch, Disney Princess costumes, and free candy for all.   No thank you to Mr. Scary Clown...creepy house at the end of the street...and movies rated higher than PG- 13. I will never ever forget my first (and ONLY) Haunted House...after surviving at least 6 back to back heart attacks and a possibly sprained ankle from jumping sky high at ever corner... I MADE … [Read more...]

Merry merry Christmas! This is my last post before Christmas Day and I want to wish you all the very best holiday! This is one of my favorite weekends of the year.

                          God Bless America. Peanut Butter. M&Ms. And pretzels.   And any excuse to eat them together.   Happy 4th of July guys! I know the real 4th is on Wednesday, but my city did all of their fireworks, parades, and parties this weekend which is awesome but also kinda strange?

Gooey Rocky Road Bars

Ok....so these brownies are ugly. Like really ugly. But I don't judge you when you're having a bad hair day? Or when you only have two finger nails still painted pink because you were too lazy to scrub off the rest.. Or when you wore that awful sparkly headband last weekend. Ok okkkkkk so maybe that was me last week. But whatever, stop staring.... ! We all have those days. Some more than others.... So these are not the Heidi Klum of brownies, but what they lack in looks they make up for in … [Read more...]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Crispy Bars

So whoever decided that Rice Crispy Treats adds should only be targeted towards kids was totally wrong. Same with Cocoa Puffs and Cinnamon Toast crunch. Why should only toddlers and pre-teens get to enjoy the sweet crunch of deliciously processed sugar cereal? Trix are not just for kids! What they really need to do is run an add that shows adults sneaking Captain Crunch at 2 in the morning. Or stashing sandwich baggies of Cocoa Puffs in their glove compartments for the morning drive to … [Read more...]
