I’m a coffee-lover. And there just happens to be a Starbucks very close to where I live. So I visit often. It’s an expensive habit, but I’ve pared it down over the years. However, there is one item that I usually splurge on and that’s their Cranberry Bliss Bars. Chewy, sweet and perfect with coffee! But a recent visit left me thinking, “couldn’t I just make these myself?” The answer was yes, of course!
I love apples. The crisp kind that are a bit sweet, but also a bit tangy. I’ll eat them just as they are, but I sure do love them in dessert. Preferably one with a crust or a crumble. And since I don’t have an apple crumble on my site, well, of course I had to make one! So here it is, my Spiced Apple Crumble.
I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t like cookies. I just don’t. Because what’s not to love about a really good cookie? Um, NOTHING! And I’m all about the flavor! So raise your cup of milk, because these delicious Toasted Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies are just what the doctor ordered!
Raise your hand if you love s’mores! Yeah, I figured. Me too. What’s more magical than a toasty marshmallow sandwiched between graham crackers and chocolate? Not much! But it’s not always feasible to build a campfire and get to toasting, so what’s a s’more lover to do? Why make S’mores Dessert Granola, that’s what!
I love most fruit. Not really surprising there. But berries have a special place in my heart. Maybe because they are so incredibly beautiful and fragile. Or maybe it’s because when they’re ripe, they’re just pure fabuloulness! And after I’ve filled my belly with them in their whole form, I like to turn the extra into these Berry Crumble Bars!
