Salted Dark Chocolate Count Chocula Candy Bars

Salted Dark Chocolate Count Chocula Bars

I always get nostalgic when I see Halloween cereals hitting the shelves. I remember the ads for Count Chocola, Booberry and Frankenberry from my Saturday morning cartoon days all too well, so they really are part of the season – even if I don’t eat as much of them now as I did back then! These days, I’m always looking for something a little more ... Read More »

They’re small enough that s’mores didn’t seem like a good choice, and while eating them straight out of the ... Read More »

Greek Yogurt Pumpkin Bread

Greek Yogurt Pumpkin Bread

The problem with pumpkin breads is that a lot of them don’t taste that much like pumpkin. They tend to taste like cinnamon, sugar and pumpkin pie spice.
