Peanut Butter Fudge Brookies

It's the weekend before Christmas. Hopefully you've gotten all your shopping done by now - though, given the number of people we saw at the mall today, you might now. Husband and I went to Ann Arbor today to have lunch with his family and we decided to swing over to Novi and the 12 Oaks Mall on our way home. There are a ton of neat shops there, and of course, the Cheesecake Factory (Peppermint Bark Cheesecake. Go get it). 
The experience made me realize that a lot of people may be running out of time, and that includes for baking holiday treats. So today I thought I would share a time saving dessert, but one that will be a huge hit. Peanut Butter Fudge Brookies.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ... including in my daily coffee treat. To me, the ultimate flavor of Christmas - and winter in general -is peppermint. You could go to the store today and find practically anything you wanted with the addition of peppermint.

My favorite though, is adding peppermint to coffee. It's even better when there's chocolate involved, too. I had an absolutely fantastic milkshake from A&W the other day - Oreo Peppermint. It was incredibly delicious, and I thought the only thing that could make it better was adding a little coffee. That was the inspiration for today's post - Oreo Candy Cane Mocha Frappe.

SampleIt Vending Kiosks

I was walking through the health and beauty section of our local Meijer the other day when something caught my eye. I saw the word “Sample” and was immediately drawn over. I love to try new things. But this wasn’t your typical grocery or superstore display offering coupons or a new sample of cracker – this was a sample vending machine!




Yep, that’s right. A vending machine. Offering choices of samples from makeup, perfume, and skincare. I had never seen such a thing before! SampleIt is a new company with a great idea - try it before you buy it!

Vanilla Honeycrisp Applesauce

First off, welcome to my new website! I hope you have a look around and let me know what you think!
I thought I would start things off over here with something easy, sweet, and very fall appropriate (can I still say Fall? It's still November, so that counts, right?). This Vanilla Honeycrisp Applesauce certainly fits the bill.
