3 Things From My Instagram

Hey everyone!

I’ve been posting a bit more in the last few days over on my Instagram @just.a.little.bit.sweet

Here are 3 things you might be missing by only checking the blog!

Valentine’s Day Peanut Butter M&M Cookies

I have finally gotten my Peanut Butter Cookie recipe to where I want it.

So delicious I’m going to share it with a twist just for valentines day or if you’re a fan of the color red!

My First Attempt Making A Mugcake

In the past, I had heard of making cakes in the microwave with coffee mugs and this cookbook just happened to have one those such mugcake recipes. I had all the ingredients on hand already and thought it would be a great recipe to try out to christen the new cookbook.

Simple Ricotta Basil Pasta

It’s nice when browsing through a cookbook that you find that recipe that sounds delicious and has simple cooking instruction. We found this pasta recipe gem in the We Care cookbook a few weeks ago and decided to try it out this evening.

Shells

Is there a pasta shape you dislike?

The Thing About Salads …

Now let’s get honest, I’ve been posting a lot of photos of well-balanced dinners over on my Instagram. All inspired and feeling that “Yes” I can totally do this on the regular after that cooking class last week. 

I do, scratch that, I can enjoy a good salad.

The Gift of Cooking

For my birthday in November, I was given the gift of “Do Something”. My something happened to be a cooking class yesterday evening with my husband, Ben.

Christmas Meringues

I had a lunch late last month with a friend and we had a lot of fun catching up and talking about Christmas cookies. Leaving that lunch the idea of a Christmas cookie baking day was born and oh am I over ambitious.

Chocolate Pretzel Holiday Snack

This holiday snack is salty and sweet, yum yum! Round pretzels filled will kisses and M&Ms. Sweet milk chocolate and a salty pretzel keep me coming back for more.

Caring Jambalya

In the area, we live in a big fundraising effort is made in December for We Care. Efforts involve Christmas light displays, people out collecting with donation buckets at intersections, a telethon, and apparently a shop with cookbooks! 

Natural Nut Butter

If you’re ever at a farmer’s market that sells natural nut butter, I suggest you give it a try. It’s great in peanut butter cookies and almond butter makes a great substitute for an even nuttier flavor.
