Gluten Free Chocolate Cake in a Mug

A friend I know has a serious thing for chocolate cake. Let me rephrase that…chocolate cake with lots of icing. Although these little cake-in-a-mug desserts do not have icing on them, they were pretty good topped with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce.

Easy, Decadent Truffles…Did I mention they are EASY??

These Easy and Decadent Truffles are SOOO good! I made them last year, but don’t remember them being as good as they are this year.

Homemade Caramel Popcorn

Every year I make popcorn for the holidays. When I was a kid we’d make about 10 ice cream pails of popcorn for Christmas. I have no idea why we thought we needed that much popcorn. Now I make a few batches of Homemade Caramel Popcorn, and we’re good until the new year. This recipe […]

Christmas Rum Balls – Gluten-Free

I’m pretty excited about these little Christmas Rum Balls. After looking through all the recipes & finding everything calling for crushed vanilla wafers, I thought I’d have to pass on these this year. BUT, I decided to use my Gluten-Free Oreo Cookie recipe that I’ve posted in the past as the base for these rum […]
