Brownie Buckeye Bites // Tried and TastyI’ve been providing healthy recipes all year long and would like to incorporate more gluten-free options for those that have the specific dietary need. I was excited when Krusteaz reached out to me with their new gluten free line of products. You know can get Gluten Free Buttermilk Pancake Mix, Gluten Free Honey Cornbread Mix, Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownie Mix, AND Gluten Free Blueberry Muffin Mix! With so many great options you have many wonderful recipes right at your fingertips!

I was inspired by my Brownie Buckeye Cupcakes for these adorable little bites! Nothing better than chocolate and peanut butter in my book! If you’ve been around for any length of time, you’ve probably read my love for all things mini! I decided to take the cupcakes in my archive, swap out the regular brownie mix for the Krusteaz Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownie Mix, and make them in to a mini treat! They were not only delicious – they’re absolutely adorable and way too conveniently poppable! Give them a try! 

Honey-Sweetened Apple & Sweet Potato Mash // Tried and TastyWith the holidays quickly approaching, it’s time to start thinking about your menu. One of my favorite side dishes I created last year was my Honey Glazed Apple & Sweet Potato Casserole.

I love mashed sweet potatoes around the holidays, and really love them loaded with brown sugar, butter, and marshmallows. This Honey-Sweetened Apple & Sweet Potato Mash is an excellent alternative that is a great way to curb your craving while still being a light dish!

With the addition of the Swanson Cream Starter™, these are just as creamy and delicious as you can imagine. They will fit in nicely with your holiday ham or turkey, stuffing, corn, and rolls.

Have I got your mouth watering yet? I can’t tell you what I’m most excited for around the table – but there’s a good chance you’ll find me head first in the bowl of Honey-Sweetend Apple & Sweet Potato Mash!

They are delicious, you’ve gotta try them!

Coconut Cranberry Citrus Twists // Tried and TastyLooking for a great Christmas breakfast or brunch idea? Well, look no further! Today I’ve got a fantastic recipe for you that’s made easy with Rhodes Bake N Serv frozen dough! Rhodes recently rounded up a few of their favorite Christmas recipes on their blog. The Cranberry Orange Wreath Rolls immediately caught my eye. With a little inspiration from my Coconut Lemon Pecan Pull-Apart Bread, I decided to make a delicious lemon variation. They turned out wonderful! 

Most Christmas mornings around my house have always been pretty relaxed. We usually eat a yummy breakfast with eggs, french toast, bacon & sausage, and of course a little something sweet. Cinnamon rolls have been the favorite for years, but I thought I’d switch things up this year and try something new. I love all things lemon (if you haven’t seen my 5-Ingredient Lemon French Toast Recipe, Lemon Glazed Blueberry Scones, Glazed Lemon Rolls or Lemon Pull-Aparts, you must check them out!). What I love about this recipe more than anything is that Rhodes does the hard work for you! After the dough has thawed and risen these are a cinch to pull together. The flavors work so well together, give them a try!

Cheesy Holiday Potatoes // Tried and TastyWhen I think of my holiday menu planning there are certain recipes that I can’t live without.

You know, like my Grandma’s Quick Yeast Rolls, Honey Glazed Sweet Potato & Apple Casserole, or our family favorite Peaches & Cream Cheesecake Recipe. On that same list are these Creamy Holiday Potatoes.

They are perfectly rich and perfectly wonderful. I know the norm is mashed potatoes, but if you are willing to switch it up just once – you won’t regret it! I first discovered this gem of a recipe several years ago from my friend Jonna over at Just Get Off Your Butt and Bake. Not only is Jonna one of the sweetest people ‘I’ve never met,’ she has the most incredible recipes.

Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites // Tried and TastyI’ve been dying to make a healthy cookie dough for some time now. I love cookie dough and could eat it all day every day. That doesn’t really line up with my health and fitness goals, so I looked for an alternative. These were absolutely perfect! Remember the Lily’s Sweets Dark Chocolate Premium Baking Chips I used in my No Bake Peanut Butter Pie & Almond Joy Granola? I used them again in these bites. They are fantastic! I love them so much!

I was also inspired by the crust of my No Bake Peanut Butter Pie for the slight alterations to the original recipe for the base of the cookie dough bites. Mmmm.. Mmmm! They are so yummy! They are the prefect size to enjoy a couple to curb your sweet tooth. I used my Stainless Steel Scoop for the ideal ‘bite sized’ portion. I doubled the batch to ensure I had enough to give to all my neighbors. 

Whole Wheat Cornbread Mix & Vanilla Honey Butter // Tried and TastyI love my Mom’s Cornbread, it’s probably my favorite. I decided though to attempt to make it a little healthier and figured It was one of those things that could go either way. It was also one of those things that I decided to attempt when we were having our neighbors over for dinner. I’m not entirely sure as to why I feel like experimenting new recipes for guests is the right timing. Thankfully it was a major success. In fact, it tastes nearly identical to the original recipe. But you can’t stop at just cornbread. You’ve got to have a good honey butter to go along with it!

Everyone has had honey butter, that isn’t anything new. The question is, have you had vanilla honey butter? Oh my. Oh me oh my! The vanila bean paste takes it to the next level. You’ll want to spread this on everything (I slathered it multiple times on my No Knead Bread). You’ll especially love it on the whole wheat cornbread! This gift set is darling with the addition of the Miniature Skillet and Mini Wooden Honey Dipper – I mean really, you had me at mini. Seriously TOO CUTE! I’ve been using cast iron more and more in my everyday cooking and I’m falling more and more in love with it each day. The Lodge 12″ Pre-Seasoned Skillet is becoming a staple, and was perfect for a batch of this yummy cornbread!
