A easily versatile recipe, these football scotcheroos are formed using a basic football cookie cutter, dipped in a second coating of chocolate, and then piped with royal icing. So simple and quick to put together for a Super Bowl party. And did I mention the chocolate/peanut butter/butterscotch combination in these Scotcheroos? They are sure to be a big party pleaser!

Almond Joy Cheesecake

This is my dream cheesecake.  A creamy cheesecake filling loaded with toasted almonds and coconut, a coconut graham cracker crust, and a smooth chocolate ganache to top the whole thing off!  This is pure candy bar in cheesecake form.

Healthy Sandwich Rolls

Healthy Sandwich Rolls

These sandwich rolls, made with oat flour and whole wheat flour, are a nice, healthier alternative to those store-bought white hamburger buns. Garnished with some crunchy seeds or wheat bran, they add great flavor and can even stand alone as a dinner roll.

Ad Hoc Brownies

Ad Hoc Brownies

These are the best brownies I have ever made. Velvety and rich, with scattered chips of bittersweet chocolate and a light dusting of powdered sugar, they don't need any add-ins or frosting. Got a cold glass of milk to go with them? You won't be disappointed.
