Tasty Tuesday: Memorial Madness

Before there was Pinterest, there was foodgawker (well, it still exists, but is less important). Back in 2009 when I posted this post, just after Memorial Day, I had no idea that the photo of my M&M Pretzels would go nuts. I got it on foodgawker, and years later, it spread out over Pinterest. Because of these social media pushes, this post has been viewed more than any other post – even my homepage!!! – with over 58,000 views. Heyo!

It was an all-in-all successful Memorial Day. I realized that we had a cookout last Memorial Day, just after we moved into the house. Hard to believe it’s been over a year! Anyway, take a look at the goodies we enjoyed…

Want to make these little delicious treats? Just melt Hershey’s kisses onto tiny twist pretzels (275 degrees, 3 minutes), remove, and immediately press a single m&m on each. Refrigerate until eating to make sure they are deliciously solid!

See the iced tea I brewed? To try this flavored, yet unsweetened tea, just brew orange spice, orange pekoe, and lemon teas (4:4:2) in 1 gallon of hot water. Allow to cool and serve over ice!

And now that I've had this lovely little blog going for over six years, I've shared a number of fall… Continue reading Fall Favorites {Round Up}

Super Hero Cake Balls

They always look completely homemade, by hand, but I just love making them. And recently, my friend Annie asked if I could make some cake balls for her son Carter's Superhero themed 4th birthday party. My response? Of course! Always! I had such a fun time making these. Cake and icing from scratch is the… Continue reading Super Hero Cake Balls
