Monthly Favourites January 2017

Hi everyone!  Can you believe that we are over a month past Christmas?  Where did January fly?  Are you counting down the days until Spring?  Summer?  Looking at your warm weather wardrobe?  I may be just a tiny tiny bit, but can you blame me with all this cold weather we’ve been having?  We have been going through a super cold spurt – like minus 25 degrees with the wind chill.  I swear, I’m not built for this.  Bundle me up nice and warm, ya know?  On the positive side, at least with the cold weather we can stay inside all cozy and eat all the comfort food 🙂 Anyway, let’s get to it. Let’s have a look at what’s been going on around here this past month!

Monthly Favourites July 2016

Hey everyone!  Well, here we are again to another monthly favourites & round-up. Any big plans for the upcoming weekend?  I wanna hear all about it (especially if it involves good eats 😉 )  Hubby and I will be having a little staycation next week (fingers crossed for nice weather), so I won’t be having a post and minimal time, if any, on social media.  A girl needs a break every once in a while to recharge, doesn’t she?  But, rest assured, I will be back the following week all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed with a delicious recipe for you guys!   Pull up a coffee, get comfy and enjoy, my friends.  Continue reading

Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

Doesn’t seeing cupcakes just make you happy? Doesn’t eating cupcakes make you even happier?  I certainly think so!  At least I think these Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting will 🙂 In recent years, cupcakes are certainly on trend, but there’s good reason – they are fun to make, oh so delicious and they look sooooo pretty.  For a lot of people the stuff, aka frosting, on top of the cake is equally more important than the cake itself.  I’ve seen some cupcakes that are like little works of art.  However, unlike art, you don’t just stare at a cupcake and admire it…you shove that little baby into your piehole faster than you can say ‘gimme’, lol.

Recently, while grocery shopping, I came across Reese Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread – OMG!   I said to hubby, ‘this stuff would be good-‘ and before I had a chance to continue and say ‘for baking’ he said in a funny voice, ‘in my belly!’ Seriously, you guys, this stuff is ammmmaaaazzzzing!  It’s too good, if that is even possible.  It is completely fine…scrap that –  it’s necessary to try it right out of the jar by the spoonful.  So, of course, I did that and after I got that out of my system, I knew I had to make something with this – ergo, Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Who doesn’t love banana bread?  I mean, it’s made with bananas so it’s technically considered a fruit, right?  Fruit is good for you, so that means banana bread is good for you.  Yes, this is my reasoning for having a second piece.

Banana bread usually is usually the result of bananas that are not at their peak.  I recently purchased too many and I had several that were about to walk off the countertop.  For me, that usually means one of two things – banana bread or smoothie.  Banana bread takes slightly more effort, but the results are so much more tastier.  Plus, you get a big hunk-o-banana bread that you can eat throughout the week. Score!

This Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread is not your average banana bread.  It is a trifecta of awesomeness – chocolate, peanut butter and bananas.  I mean, seriously!  Easy to prep, you just have to have the patience to wait for this baby to bake.  Have your cold glass of milk ready – it’s banana bread’s best friend.
