Cherry Cola Flavour Creme Oreos

Got these while in the U.S. not too long ago, and gave them a try the other night. As much as the name of these Oreos sounds yummy, to my hubby and I they weren’t. For one thing, I didn’t feel anything from the popping candy side and the cherry cola flavour itself was off. They say there’s an Oreo for everyone right? 😉 This one just wasn’t ours. We also bought the Peanut Butter Pie Oreos…will be trying those ones next!

Chocxo Organic Almond Butter Cups

Saw these at Costco tonight and we thought we’d give them a try. First I’ll say they were pretty good and we enjoyed the taste of the almond butter. It’s nowhere near as sweet as a Reese’s PB Cup, which is nice! Our son even put his stamp of approval on it 🙂 But I must say, I personally like milk chocolate for this particular treat. Which is not to say that I don’t like darker chocolate, because I do! We’ll continue to enjoy these chocolatey goodies for sure though and even buy them again.

Coconut Macaroon Nests

Was perusing Pinterest before Easter, and of course it was full of Easter treats recipes. One that stood out to me though, were these coconut macaroon nests. For the one and only reason…simplicity!! With only a few ingredients, it was pretty easy for me to decide to try this recipe out. It was the perfect choice to make while our son was having Daddy time playing. I was able to whip them up quickly and the nests were done before his bed time. Instead of melting white chocolate (we’re not much fans of it any way), I hacked it with cookie icing, to stick the eggs to the nests. Not as pretty, but I think I actually, almost nailed it visually LOL For me the recipe made 24, since it seems I put a bit more of the mixture in each mini cupcake holder 😉 They were yummy, though on the much sweeter side. I may cut the sugar in half the next time I try, since the coconut flakes are already sweetened. All in all, it’s a super cute treat for Easter or for spring in general. Because who really needs a holiday as an excuse to eat – right?! The link for the recipe is below. Give it a try and let me know what you think of it!!

Super Bowl 2018

Another year and another Super Bowl behind us!! Was a good game, but I’ll be honest, it was more about the food then the game for me LOL

This year I decided to finally try this Crack Dip I kept seeing on Pinterest. After deciding on which one of the recipes to use, I made it and let it do its thing in the fridge overnight. When I put it out for us to try, I could see how it lives up to its name!! The creamy, ranchy, bacony, cheesy goodness was a tad on the salty side (which is fine!!), but served with an array of veggies made a better compliment then chips. And we couldn’t stop eating it LOL Will definitely make this again sometime!! It’s too yummy to make often though 😉

I also chose to make meatballs, because I knew we’d have leftovers for another meal or two. I came across the recipe for these Thai Chili and Cranberry Meatballs on Pinterest as well. I usually make meatballs differently, but thought I’d change it up this time. I threw all the ingredients into the crock pot and cooked on low for 2 hours. It turned out great – we enjoyed the flavour of sweet and spicy very much. It’ll taste even better over rice later this week too!!

And with that, we enjoyed watching the game and eating some great food. Hope all of you who also watched, had a great time doing so!!

Crockpot Chocolate Clusters

Happy 2018 Everyone!! Hope you all enjoyed the holidays as much as we did 🙂

Before the holidays, I was looking through Pinterest for a baking recipe, when I kept coming across these clusters. The face that they were made in the Crockpot was a huge plus, since I’m all about using mine!! The recipe I used was a 3-ingredient one consisting of almonds, chocolate chips and sea salt. The first time I made it was to try it out and made the original recipe. I did use dark chocolate instead of milk, as we like it better. We enjoyed that batch as well as gave some away. So when I decided to make it as part of our holiday gifts, I did add a 1/2 cup of dried cranberries to the recipe. We enjoyed this batch as well and thought the cranberries were a nice addition to it. I do think this year I’ll make them with almonds, another nut (either cashew or peanut), milk chocolate and cranberries – see how that turns out 🙂

Peeps Delights Peppermint Bark Flavoured Marshmallow


So I’ve never been a huge fan of Peeps. Always found the flavours unappealing, for one reason or another. But I’ve kept on searching and trying to see if there ever would be a flavour I might like. Well, we were in the U.S. last month and I saw these in Target and thought we’d give it a try. We opened them up today and I can actually say that I LIKED these ones!! The chocolate dipped bottom added a nice touch to the peppermint flavoured marshmallow. Would buy this flavour again, if I come across them, or next time we’re in the U.S near the holidays.
