Apples Vert

Baby Boy Joy {Recipe: Oven Baked Cinnamon Apples}

9 1/2 years ago, we welcomed our first baby into our family. It seems like such a long time ago, looking back. I remember specific moments with Jacob that I don’t remember with my three girls. There’s the first time he fell asleep in his high chair with a mouth and face full of food. […]

Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie with Biscoff Cookie Crust – for Mikey

I collapsed into bed, exhausted. Dealing with my brothers illness has taken a toll on me I never expected. When a family member is dying I’m discovering there are a lot of eggshells to be walked on. Am I doing enough? Am I intruding? Am I annoying them calling and checking on things when in […]

If you’ve been following me on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram you have probably noticed I’ve been going a bit crazy for Biscoff cookies lately. I first discovered their cookies when on a Delta flight. I was sitting next to a lovely lady and we both bit into our cookies and were immediately smitten. In fact, […]

Black Book Recipes

History Lesson {Recipe: Root Beer Float Popsicles}

My mom taught me a valuable lesson when I was younger. “Kristen… you’ll always be able to tell the best recipes in a cookbook by the wrinkles and splatters on the pages. The worse the page looks, the better the recipe. You’ll know exactly what recipes the cook turned to time and time again by […]

Oreo Sticks

Simple and Special {Recipe: Chocolate Dipped Oreo Cookies on a Stick}

Go Green With Sunkist Valencia Oranges {Recipe: Creamy Orange Milkshake}

This post brought to you by Sunkist. All opinions are 100% mine. So, oranges are supposed to be orange, right? Guess what… not always! I know…that’s news to me too. I just assumed with a name like orange you’d be that color, but with Sunkist® Valencia oranges, that’s not always the case. I recently found […]

Homemade eCreamery 3 Cocoa Bean Chocolate Ice Cream

I made eCreamery 3 Cocoa Bean Chocolate Ice Cream yesterday and it is a very close second to the Buttered Salted Caramel I made the other day. Making ice cream is a little like magic, don’t you think? Dumping a couple of things into an ice cream maker and then peeking in just a short […]

Homemade Twix Caramel Cookie Bars

Convenience Store Living {Recipe: Homemade Twix Caramel Cookie Bars}

After the egg cream float, daycare days, we moved to the country. Well, it was 3 1/2 miles south of the tiny town I went to school in, but to a young girl, that was country. There was no Pizza Hut delivery. There were no friends just dropping in to see if I wanted to […]
