What's Cooking? - Crunchy Chocolate Chips Peanut Butter Snack Bites


Crunchy Chocolate Chips Peanut Butter Snack Bites

Growing up I spent countless hours in the kitchen browsing my mom's small collection of cookbooks. She did not buy magazines but would occasionally receive free recipe booklets in the mail. It would not be a surprise if I told you that I would peruse the dessert section first. I had been baking since I was about seven years old, and had also been watching my mom make her famous old-fashioned fudge and licking the bowl.

Chocolate Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting

We love cupcakes in the house. These Chocolate Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting are fun to make and they look so nice on a dessert table. When I make them they are popular with my young nieces and my dad. They can't only eat one, they go for seconds and even ask to bring some home after the party. If you make them, make sure you bake a double batch!

If there is one item that you will always find in my fridge, it's cheese. We like to add cheese to a lot of dishes and it enhances the flavour of our meals. We have tacos nights, quesadillas lunches, and why not eat cheese for breakfast like in these delicious Open-Face Huevos Rancheros? I made these twice since last week. It's a quick breakfast that keeps us full until lunchtime, and the eggs are creamy with a Touch of Philadelphia Shredded Cheese!
