Gingerbread Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting



Hi there :) I've finally caught the holiday baking itch! This ice storm that we are currently going through in the Dallas area may have something to do with it. It's supposed to get down to 15 degrees early tomorrow morning..I don't think I've ever experienced temperatures that cold in my 11+ years of living in Texas. I will say i'm enjoying being all cozied up inside though :) I think these delicious cupcakes are a perfect way to kick off the holiday baking season, wouldn't you agree?! Let's get to it...

Rocky Road Cookies



These cookies are impressive looking, totally delicious and impossibly EASY thanks to the help of a store bought Betty Crocker cookie mix. Sometimes it's nice to get a little help from the store and still make something totally awesome. Of course you can feel free to make homemade chocolate cookie dough, but I wanted to go quick, easy, and simple with these. They are no-fuss but you would never know that when you bite into one. Ooey, gooey and scrumptious! My Mom makes these amazing cookies using this very mix, she made them all the time growing up, especially around Christmas time. I will be sharing them in the next few weeks, so stay tuned!

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups



So now that Halloween is literally right around the corner, this will be my last festive treat! I think we're ending on a pretty good note, don't you? :) These couldn't be any easier either. I will say that I was soo disappointed that I wasn't able to find anymore Halloween Oreo's on the shelves. They would have given these that last extra special touch, but they are super cute nonetheless :) These can be made anytime of the year, and definitely dressed up for any season with the seasonal Oreo's. These are too cute and too easy not to whip up before Halloween next week! *Tip: These are incredible warmed up in the microwave with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Tombstone Brownies



Hi there :) I meant to post these a few days ago but I've been feeling a little under the weather due to allergies - blah! On a positive note, it seems like Fall has finally decided to arrive in the Dallas area and I couldn't be happier. I love having the a/c OFF and the windows OPEN! Cute treats like this also just seem so much more appropriate when it's not 90 something degrees outside :) These are so fun and so easy. Such a fun project to do with the kids. My 2 year old thought they were just amazing and kept trying to grab at them while I was taking pictures, she even managed to snatch a pumpkin off of one at one point. I have a funny little set of pictures below that I just had to share from when I was photographing them. I hope you guys enjoy these!

This pasta dish is a MUST TRY! It's sort of like alfredo sauce and marinara sauce got married - and that marriage is beautiful! It's seriously so delicious, definitely one of our new top faves!
