Glazed Caramel Apple Bread

This recipe comes to you courtesy of Crisco. Funny story. Last week I was enjoying the cooling evening breeze wafting thru my open window with a beverage in my hand and my love by my side when I heard frantic calls of “Tonya! Tonya!” coming from over the fence. My adorable neighbor (and her daughter) were beckoning me to come over. “Quick! Baking emergency! Come over!” they hollered and then disappeared back into their house. So, off I darted to the house next door to see what was up. I’m embarrassed to say that I brought my drink with me. It was hot out, the drink was fresh and far be it from me to let a perfectly cold cocktail go to waste. “Baking emergency” could mean anything from a massive grease fire in the oven, to salt being used liberally as a seasoning in a batch of cookies. I had no idea what I was walking in to…but, with my beverage in hand I was ready for anything.

No-Bake Peanut Butter Pretzel Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

I have been looking for a no-fail, easy homemade granola bar recipe for a few weeks now. Fall is coming and my sweet Madison is starting Kindergarten. How did that happen so fast? I blinked and suddenly she was 5. Crazy. I cannot wait for after school snack time. I remember that being the best thing ever. Come home from school to a glass of cold milk and some kind of treat? Oh yeah. This recipe is going to be made every single week I’m sure. It takes 5 minutes, you don’t have to bake anything and they are incredibly delicious.

Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites

I’m making peanut butter and chocolate for two reasons. I needed a snack to bring to conference championship weekend (it’s a football thing – pretty much the best day in the NFL all year) and secondly, I don’t really like peanut butter chocolate things. Since I’m trying to drop a few pounds, I need to make things that won’t tempt me personally. I’ve found that if I can resist the urge to eat “just one” of something, I’m much less likely to polish off the entire batch. These looked amazing and my husband (confirmed non-sweet eater) had three of them, so I feel very confident in telling you to give them a try. Plus, 3000 people repinning this on Pinterest can’t be wrong. Sweet and salty together is always a good plan.
