Chocolate Mint Bundt Cake/#BundtBakers

This Chocolate Mint Bundt Cake is like a blast from the past! We used our favorite Girl Scout Cookies as the inspiration for this months BundtBakers. Do you enjoy Girl Scout Cookies? I have loved them since I was, well.... a girl scout. Of course that was eons ago, and we sold those yummy cookies door to door. In those days, we took orders and then weeks later, we delivered the cookies to our customers, in my case, my neighbors and relatives. If you were lucky, your Dad would take the sign up sheet to work, and he would return with lots of orders. I was not that lucky girl scout. But I sold my share, and sometimes I got to eat a couple of my favorites, Thin Mints! So today the Thin Mints are my inspiration for this Chocolate Mint Bundt Cake. I hope it evokes good memories for you too!

Championship Party Dip

As we are getting into the first games of the NCAA College Basketball Tournament, I want to share this simple Championship Party Dip! This party dip came about after I bought a box of Everything Crackers from Trader Joes. I tore in to the bag as soon as I got home. I was curious as to the taste and if they were anything like the everything bagel. Well, they were really a little too strong for me. I figured that a dip was the perfect solution. I know I needed to start with cream cheese, because it certainly makes an everything bagel taste good! So I came up with this recipe. The ingredients may seem rather bland, but when you dip the everything crackers into it, it's totally amazing! It brings out all the great taste of the crackers, and is rather addicting!

Chocolate Caramel Peanut Clusters/#FoodieExtravaganza


Today I have some Chocolate Caramel Peanut Clusters for your tasting pleasure! This recipe is part of the #Foodie Extravaganza food group I participate in. It's a lot of fun, and really makes me work at coming up with something different and unique that you will enjoy! Even though I use the word work, I really love the challenge! 
These Chocolate Caramel Peanut Clusters are yummy and chocolatey, gooey and nutty. That is a lot to ask for from such a small piece of candy, but it delivers and you won't be disappointed!
