Mounds Brownies

If you follow my beautiful friend Rene over on My Simple Kitchen, then you may have already seen these ridiculously delicious looking brownies. For those of you who don’t follow her, YOU SHOULD!! She makes really, really good food, and her recipes are easy to follow and have become some of mine and my husband’s favorites. I highly recommend the Sriracha Salmon, and the Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches.

OK, now that I’ve made you all hungry from talking about my favorite foods….

I pinned an image on pinterest last week of “Mound Brownies” but when I clicked the image it wasn’t attached to any recipe or blog, or anything. Naturally, I commented on the image and begged Rene to create a recipe for me. Ahhh the perks of having super talented friends! :-)

Rene knows I’m not the most “chefy” person, and easy is always better for me, so she was kind enough to make this recipe idiot-proof. If you’d like to make these drool-worthy, Mound Brownies, grab the recipe here.

If you want to see more of the things I think are “pin worthy”, follow me on Pinterest. You can also follow My Simple Kitchen here. Rene and I share a food board, and its full of yummy recipes like this one, so make sure you check it out if you’re looking for new meal ideas.

Hope you all have a great Tuesday, and if you make these brownies, post a pic and give Rene a shoutout – @mysimplekitchen

Peppermint Oreo Milkshake

Hello!

I hope you all had wonderful weekends. We spent ours at IKEA buying a few items for my husbands new work office (that place is like a grown-ups playground, and I loved every second of it), and then we finally put up our tree. It feels so good to knock that off my to-do list. Woohoo!

While we were being oh-so-festive, I made the most delicious milkshakes that I’ve ever tasted. If you like oreos, and a little dash of peppermint, then you’re going to L-O-V-E these shakes. My daughter was chugging hers so fast we kept having to take it away and make her take breaks to avoid brain-freeze. It only requires 5 ingredients, and takes 5 minutes to make. Can’t go wrong with that, can you? I would also HIGHLY recommend adding some liquor to these.

Ingredients (For 2 shakes):

3 Cups Vanilla Ice Cream

5-8 Oreo Cookies (whatever kind you prefer, I just used what I had on hand)

1 cup Milk

 1/2 Candy Cane (Or peppermint schnapps)

Whipped Cream

In a blender, add ice cream, milk, oreos, and crushed candy canes. Blend until smooth. Serve in cold glasses and top with whipped cream & crushed oreos. Enjoy!

I’m also taking over My Simple Kitchen all week so come say hi! I’m using my leftover oreos to make White Chocolate Oreo Popcorn, and showing you how it can make the perfect gift for friends & coworkers. 3 ingredients, and less than 10 minutes.

Give {A Delicious} Thanks

I have been trying to come up with quick, easy, and affordable gift ideas for my friends and family for Thanksgiving. It is, of course, the day to be thankful for all those wonderful people who support you, love you, and make your life that much sweeter. I decided the thing my loved ones enjoy most is food…desserts specifically…so I started looking up pie recipes, and stumbled upon these adorable “Pie In A Jar” recipes. Is it just me, or is everything in a mason jar so much cuter?!

Lets start with Layered Pumpkin Pie in a Jar, by Brenda of A Farmgirl Dabbles

Click here for her recipe.

More of an apple pie lover? These look mouth watering!

Click here for the recipe.

Cherry is my personal favorite, so I’ll be trying these.

You can check out the recipe here.

Or if you want a gift that can be mailed, why not try cookies in a jar!

Layer the dry ingredients, and attach a card to the jar with directions on what to add (wet ingredients) and baking instructions. Easy peasy, and so cheap!
