David does not like sloppy joes, but I very much do. AND being the good wife that I am (heh heh heh) I don’t make sloppy joes, like ever, so that David doesn’t have to eat something he doesn’t like.

I joke, I joke. I do make sloppy joes sometimes, and David is a good sport and eats them just fine. The problem is he doesn’t like them enough to eat any of the leftovers… so I end up eating sloppy joe mix for days. Continue reading “Maid-Rite Sandwich Copycat (Lightened Up!)”

This morning I had the pleasure of taking my three-year-old guy into the dentist to get two cavities filled. Truth be told, I waited way too long to take him into the dentist. His first regular cleaning was just a couple of weeks ago. I put it off for a long time mainly because I just knew the probability of him having cavities was going to be high (NOT because this mom of his is a dessert blogger though).

I knew he’d likely have cavities because brushing his teeth has always been a battle (and we started brushing as soon as he had teeth as a little baby)! We are talking… screaming, crying, wiggling, weeping, and having to pin him down just to get that brush in his mouth for a few seconds. On the days when he begs to brush his teeth on his own, he just gets the fronts of his top and bottom teeth, and then he thoroughly enjoys sucking the rest of his berry flavored toothpaste off of his toothbrush. Probably better for him than not brushing at all, but still probably not very effective.

And so when they told me he had two cavities way in the back of his mouth a couple of weeks ago I was not surprised, because those back teeth hardly get cleaned like they should. Continue reading “Oatmeal Creme Pie Bars for Two”

So, I made these delicious oatmeal creme pie bars the other day {recipe coming soon}. The recipe was baked in an 8×4″ pan, and made four bars. I decided that this was the perfect size for sharing. One for me, one for David, and one each for our friends Angela and David. Continue reading “Ginger + Peach Crisps for Two”

I can’t even tell you how excited I am for fall, *said the girl writing a post about popsicles*.

I love fall. Fall is my favorite. A couple of weeks ago it got nice and cool up here, just for a few days. It felt so much like fall that I started craving all things pumpkin and apple, and I really really wanted to wear a cardigan. Continue reading “Coconut Lime Popsicles”

It’s National S’mores Day… and so I made you some biscoff churro muddy buddies.

I think I made a mental note of National S’mores Day at some point, and then I forgot all about it and it snuck up on me.

So if you’re really craving a s’more today and/or you want to celebrate this beloved National holiday, then check out these s’mores brownies or these salted caramel pretzel s’mookies!

Also, I promise that I’ll put National S’mores Day on the blog calendar for next year (and yes, by “put it” I mean actually write it down). Continue reading “Biscoff Churro Muddy Buddies”

Small Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies

The perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe for when the craving strikes but you don’t want to make a massive batch!

Chocolate chip cookies are my all-time favorite cookie. They might even be my all-time favorite treat. Ever.

Small Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies (recipe makes just 8 cookies!) // bakingyum.com

When I was working to lose weight, I’d often have cravings for chocolate chip cookies. But part of losing weight for me meant developing some self control, and I knew that having 2-3 dozen cookies lying around was not a great idea. Continue reading “Small Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies”

Buckeye Pretzel Bites

Inspired by the buckeye, a candy that is popular in Ohio (named because it resembles the nut of the buckeye tree). In these buckeye pretzel bites the peanut butter filling of that candy is sandwiched between two pretzels and then dipped and drizzled in dark chocolate.

Buckeye Pretzel Bites // bakingyum.com

These buckeye pretzel bites were the first ever small-batch treat that I developed a couple of years ago in a tiny two bedroom apartment with a squishy little kitchen. They’ve evolved over time, but I love them just as much now as I did that first time I made them.

They’re inspired by buckeye candy (which will heretofore be referred to as buckeyes, because no one I know calls them buckeye candy). Buckeyes are native to Ohio, where I actually lived for about five years when I was a teenager. I loved the place and the people. I often think about the years I spent there. It was during the time I lived there that I was introduced buckeyes. If you haven’t had one, that is so so sad. They’re a totally delectable peanut butter and chocolate treat.

S’mores Brownies

Rich chocolate chip brownies baked on top of a graham cracker crust, then topped with toasted marshmallow creme.

S'mores Brownies // bakingyum.com

I just really have this thing for s’mores right now. Did you see these salted caramel pretzel s’mookies I posted a couple of weeks ago? Well, they’re divine; a totally gourmet and addicting version of the average graham cracker and Hershey’s chocolate s’more.
