Bialosky Bear Vanilla Wafers

I’ve been struggling with depression lately which has involved a lot of wandering aimlessly around the kitchen late at night. I knew I wanted something snacky and sweet but didn’t want to get into anything too involved and inspiration hit though when I... read more

Candied Pecans

I’m not a big fan of nuts. Sure, I can eat a handful of honey roasted peanuts now and then, salted cashews are starting to grow on me, and I like my peanut-butter crunchy, but I despise Jordan almonds and think that nuts ruin perfectly good fudge. I hate nuts in... read more

Almond Belgian Waffles

For Christmas Adam and Brandie gave me a wonderful waffle iron for which I’ve had a few opportunities to use over the last couple of months. Belgian waffles are great for any occasion, but I’ve added a little twist that definitely makes these my new... read more
