Peanut Butter Frosted Brownie Stacks

Peanut Butter Frosted Brownie Stack

I was craving peanut butter and chocolate and unfortunately I didn’t have any Reese’s peanut butter cups in the house. Digging around in the pantry, I noticed that I had a box of brownie mix.  Chocolate problem solved…now for the peanut butter part.  A little peanut butter, powdered sugar, and butter and viola…..Peanut Butter Frosted Brownie Stack is born.

Old Fashioned Buttermilk Pie

buttermilk pie 2

Visiting family and friends during the holidays means good times, great food, and pecan or buttermilk pie (or both if your lucky).  It’s an old southern recipe and is a staple at many Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners.  I usually make two pies each time I bake, serving one and popping the other one in the freezer.  You can take it out ahead of time and let it thaw or if you are in a hurry, put it in the oven on low heat (around 170 degrees)  while you get ready.


You can find the recipe for this pie HERE.

THANK YOU GIFTS


Do you need a cute and inexpensive thank you gifts?  How about these adorable flower pots?

I purchased these tiny terra cotta flower pots from Dollar Tree for 3/$1.  I painted the bottom half in chalkboard paint (already had the paint from previous project - Hidden Door Shelving) and found the tiny water sauers on clearance at Walmart for 10¢ each.  The plants came from my mothers yard so they were FREE !

Woodland / Lodge Baby Shower


My daughter had her baby shower at our church yesterday and I thought I would share it with you.


The nursery will be lodge/woodland/outdoor themed so we decided to keep the shower with the nursery theme so she could incorporate the decorations from the shower into the nursery.

MASCARPONE FROSTING ~ THE PERFECT TOPPING FOR ANY DESERT!

mascarpone frosting 2

This is my new favorite frosting.  It’s light and fluffy and holds up great.
I was looking for a frosting that would be great paired with an angel food cake.  Something that wasn’t overly sweet and had a light texture.  Something that was similar to whipped cream but I wanted it to be a frosting that would hold up when out at room temperature.  Maybe something with Mascarpone cheese.
I have seen recipes for years calling for mascarpone cheese and knew it wasn’t something I couldn’t get at my local Walmart (at least I have never found at my Walmart ) so I never tried it.  I was visiting my daughter in Hot Springs, AR and ran across some at Krogers and knew it was time to test out this cheese.  I threw it and some heavy whipping cream into my buggy and strolled to the deli to pick up an angel food cake.

RAINBOW CUPCAKES

I found these new cute pink cupcake wrappers at my local dollar store and couldn’t wait to get home to make cupcakes.  I decided to make rainbow cupcakes since it has been on my “to try” list for awhile.  To be honest, it was much more time consuming than I thought it would be and mine didn’t turn out those beautiful pictures that I have seen on pinterest but I still think they were pretty.
