Crack Popcorn. This is my favorite treat to take to get-togethers. Who doesn’t love the sweet and salty mix of chocolate and popcorn?!

Hello Love!

On today’s Foodie Friday post, I’m going to share my FAVORITE treat to take to get-togethers, crack popcorn. Trust me, after you taste it, you’ll know why I named it Crack Popcorn. I once had a friend call it Devil’s Poop Popcorn because it was so good, it was bad! HAHA!

Crack popcorn

Every Christmas, my girlfriends from high school and I get together and have a small party; this is what I make every year. It’s quick and easy to make and who, honestly, can resist Oreos mixed with anything, am I right?

The recipe is basically just layering each ingredient and letting it cool to let the chocolate bond everything together. Takes about 15 minutes to make and 1-2 hours to let cool and harden.

Hello Love!

Today I wanted to share with you a new recipe we tried to snack on during this crazy football season. When it comes to college football, we are a split family. We spend every Saturday rooting for our favorite teams, The Ohio State Buckeyes and the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Find the original recipe HERE!

Jimmy Dean Spicy Sausage Dip

It’s been a hot season this year ad we’ve loved all the competition between all the teams, especially between the SEC teams. On Saturday, November 5th, we had three consecutive football games to watch and we knew we needed a lot of yummy food to get us through the slightly stressful day.

Jimmy Dean Spicy Sausage Dip

My hubby bought home hot wings and fries and I made this yummy Jimmy Dean spicy sausage dip for us to munch on all day. It’s a lot like the classic hamburger/Velveeta/Rotel dip that everyone knows and loves but I have to say, I really love this twist of the traditional recipe made with sausage.

Dutch Oven Roast

Hello Love!

Be sure to save this recipe (or save a photo as a pin on Pinterest) as this is, by far, the best roast recipe I’ve ever tried. Roast has never been a favorite recipe of mine and I never love when my hubby requests it. It’s never flavorful enough and just never sounds good to me.

Dutch Oven Roast

I stumbled upon THIS RECIPE from Mia’s Kitchen on TikTok and it looked so amazing that I had to try it. I cooked it in my large 7-quart enameled cast iron dutch oven so I had to adjust a few of her measurements to accommodate my large pot.

Dutch Oven Roast

Even if you aren’t much of a cook, like me, this recipe gave me no issues and was very easy to follow. I love to find recipes on TikTok because you can see the entire process and whether it’s something I feel I can repeat.

My kitchen smelled so amazing as this was cooking. My kids were really excited to eat when they got home from school.

Hello Love!

Today I’m going to share with you a quick and easy trail mix recipe that my mom made all the time when I was growing up. It was the perfect mix of sweet and salty and simply delicious. Jump to Recipe

4 Ingredient Fall Trail Mix

All you need is a jar of salted/lightly salted peanuts, 1 box of raisins, 1 bag of chocolate morsels, and 1 bag of butterscotch morsels.

4 Ingredient Fall Trail Mix

I always recommend getting salty/lightly salted peanuts. You need that little bit of salt to balance out the sweetness.

4 Ingredient Fall Trail Mix

I know a lot of people don’t love raisins but when they get covered in a little salt from the peanuts it’s ::chef’s kiss::!

4 Ingredient Fall Trail Mix

Chocolate chips are a must but if you’re not a lover of butterscotch, it’s easy to swap these out for white chocolate or even peanut butter morsels.

Fill you container with equal amounts of each ingredient and shake, shake, shake!

Halloween Themed Halloween Charcuterie Board. a.k.a. SCARE-cuterie Board

Or is it a SCARE-BOO-terie board?!

Halloween Themed Halloween Charcuterie Board

Hello Love!

Today I’m going to show you a super cute Halloween sweets board that we whipped up to celebrate our favorite spooky day. Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. This year we decided to have a family night in filled with pizza, scary movies, and a fun Halloween candy charcuterie board.

Halloween Themed Halloween Charcuterie Board

I went to the store and grabbed my family’s favorite treats along with some Halloween-themed candy to make the board extra cute and colorful. From Twizzlers to KitKats and Peeps, we’ve got a little bit of every candy to satisfy everyone.

Halloween Themed Halloween Charcuterie Board

While my youngest kiddo and husband carved a kitty cat pumpkin, I put together this yummy snack board.

I use both my small and large Happy Everything wooden boards with my favorite Halloween attachments (the ghost {I have the old version but HERE is the new design} and witch {also old and no longer available}) and it all turned out so cute. I also used some of my white ramekins to keep smaller candies a little easier to grab.

Halloween Themed Halloween Charcuterie Board

I’m not a huge fan of Peeps but the green Frankenstein heads and white ghosts are definitely my favorite part of the board. I also wanted to add a bit more salt, like popcorn, but my kids had eaten it all. HA!

Happy Halloween, everyone!

CRACK CINNAMON ROLLS

Crack Cinnamon Rolls. Here’s the famous TikTok cinnamon roll recipe with a twist. Add a bit of vanilla and cinnamon for breakfast perfection.

Jump to Recipe

Hello love!

I’m sure you’ve seen this amazing recipe floating around on the TikTok but today I wanted to share with you how I add a bit of a twist to this simple recipe.

My family has DIED over these cinnamon rolls and requests them all the time. They make regular old grocery store canned rolls taste like they are truly homemade. The way the heavy whipping cream makes the rolls puff up and make them ooey gooey in the middle is just ::chef’s kiss::.

By just adding three extra ingredients to your canned cinnamon rolls, you’ve got a warm gooey breakfast your whole family will love.

Why do I call them “crack cinnamon rolls”? No, there aren’t any illegal drugs in them BUT try them once, and you’ll be ADDICTED. You won’t want to make them the regular way again!
