There’s a reason this Ritz Cracker toffee is nicknamed “Christmas crack”. It’s so delicious and totally addicting. Twenty minutes and 4 ingredients separate you from this amazing treat. You’ll have the recipe memorized in no time, and may need to call in regular reinforcements so you aren’t tempted to eat the whole pan all by yourself. Consider yourself warned.
If simple, healthy side dishes are your jam, this vegetable dish is a must-try! Roasted cauliflower is delicious and very easy to prepare. You’ll spend just a minute or two prepping the cauliflower florets (wash and drain) before spreading them on a large baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and toss the florets around to coat evenly. Sprinkle with seasoned salt prior to roasting the cauliflower in the oven. Move over fruit. Vegetables are the new hot side dish on the dinner menu.
Full of fresh vegetables (green onions, tomatores, jalapenos), smothered in cheese and black beans, and topped with a flavorful jalapeno ranch dressing, these jalapeno ranch black bean loaded nachos are delicious! You can keep them meat-free for vegetarians, or add some shredded chicken or beef for something a little heartier. Either way, they are awesome for a small group or a large party!
This recipe had me at pumpkin. And if you’re wondering what’s so impossible about these pumpkin pie cupcakes to name them “impossible”, just try one. Then try not to eat another one. Yeah, impossible! They are like a cupcake made from pumpkin pie filling, but sturdy enough to hold in your hand. They won’t be in your hand long though. Your taste buds can’t wait that long.
Take advantage of fresh produce during the spring and summer so you can enjoy this homemade tomato sauce all year long.

A definite crowd pleaser, this buffalo chicken dip recipe can be made in your slow cooker/crockpot! Do I hear a “hooray”?

Get ready to for a flavor explosion as you dip your favorite chips in this amazing buffalo chicken dip!
S’mores are always a good idea! If you’re looking to top good old-fashioned s’mores, give these grilled banana s’mores a go! Preparation is easy, requiring a careful slit down the middle of a banana (leave the peel intact). Stuff with chocolate pieces and marshmallows, before closing the banana peel back up, and grilling on a piece of foil. Yum!
