Nutella Banana Bread

The softest banana bread you’ve ever had, swirled with thick ribbons of Nutella. And with only 6 tablespoons of butter in the entire loaf it’s practically low-fat!

Guuuuuuuys. It’s soooo good.

I came up with this banana bread base recipe two years ago, and it’s the only banana bread recipe I’ve used since then. It’s not even worth trying out new recipes; there is no banana bread I’ve ever had that comes close to this one. It’s soft, velvety, and light. It’s so flavorful and can be eaten at any time of day. It’s sliceable so you can have a sliver or a huge piece. Or five slivers.

And about 1/4 of the mass comes from bananas, so it’s relatively more healthy than other desserts (Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cookies, I’m looking at you). …

Reese’s lovers beware: there’s a new peanut butter cup in town. Creamy peanut butter and fluff get stuffed inside white chocolate in my Peanut Butter and Fluff Cups! 

Peanut Butter and Fluff Cups

Who remembers the hierarchy of school lunches in middle school? There were kids who bought lunches every day, kids who brought boring sandwiches and an apple, and kids who brought a whole thermos of last night’s dinner or something.

And then there were kids that had amazing lunches with crustless sandwiches, fruit cups, lays chips, and dunkaroos. They were the envy of the cafeteria. They had lunches that made all the other kids swoon and ask for a bite, please. They had peanut butter and fluff.

Chocolate Stout Cupcakes

The ultimate in boozy desserts is here: Guinness chocolate cupcakes topped with a decadent Guinness chocolate frosting and flaked sea salt!

Chocolate Stout Cupcakes

I grew up in a Patriots household. Every Sunday was Football Sunday at our house. And with Football Sunday, there came a party. It was pretty much dads and their kids, though sometimes my aunt and grandmother would make an appearance to balance out the gender ratio.

But for the most part it was dudes and kids. And while the dads drank their beers and watched the game, we kids would go and play. The game would be on every TV in the house (living room, bedroom, kitchen, basement), so one could always tell what was going on.

We had a lot of TVs now that I think of it. But in truth it was less glamorous than it seemed. My dad has always had a knack for turning trash into treasures, so most of these TVs were ones we found on the side of the road. …

Better Than Boxed Brownies

A one-bowl wonder that tastes waaay better than boxed brownies. You’ll never reach for another boxed brownie mix again!

Better Than Boxed Brownies

My name is Sarah and I am a brownie addict. Brownies are my favorite dessert. Possibly my favorite food. As some of you know, I even strongly considered making every Wednesday post a brownie post.

(It took all my restraint not to).

So creating a new brownie recipe is a big deal for me, because if I don’t come up with something next to perfect, I get frustrated. In fact, I threw out an entire batch of brownies yesterday because they just didn’t measure up. And I’m not even mad about it. …

Salted Caramel Popcorn

Popcorn that just melts in your mouth! Coated with a sweet & salty caramel, then baked to perfection.

There’s just something about salted caramel that makes me weak at the knees. I mean, how could one not like a sweet, rich caramel with a hint of salt? The salt brings out the flavor like a thousand times more.

Every time I eat salted caramel, my tastebuds do a little dance that looks like this.

So in thinking of all of the things I could make salted caramel’d, popcorn stood out the most. It’s absolutely perfect. Unlike popcorn right out of the microwave (or air popper), this popcorn becomes almost creamy once it’s baked. The caramel becomes crispy without sticking to your teeth like traditional hard candy. It’s like the oven gods do a little magic trick and voilà! Perfect salted caramel popcorn.

Oreo Donuts

Chocolate donuts with crushed Oreo cookies baked right in, then topped with a vanilla glaze and more Oreos. For the kid in all of us.

Sometimes, there’s nothing better than an Oreo. Well, except for when you take a bunch of Oreos, crush them up, and put them inside chocolate donuts.

And then top those donuts with a thick vanilla frosting and more crushed Oreos.

Are you drooling yet? …
