Pumpkin S’mores Cupcakes

Pumpkin S'mores Cupcakes combine everyone's favorite summer treat with an iconic Fall-time flavor!

Oh you guys. I have been so excited to share these with you! S'mores cupcakes have been super popular this year (as well they should be-- s'mores + cake = !!!), and every time I hop on Pinterest I see a new variation that I can't wait to try. I never got around to making them before school started (it just feels like summer is officially over now, doesn't it?), and now I'm already starting to see pumpkin everywhere I look! So I decided to combine the two into one treat perfect for this … [Continue reading...]

Baked “Deep Fried” Oreos

Baked "Deep Fried" Oreos are just as yummy as the real thing but with a LOT less mess and less fat!

At heart, I am the most major fried-food junkie you've ever met. And I absolutely mean m-a-j-o-r. I do what I can to keep the beast under control on a day-to-day basis. But the siren call of french fries, chicken fingers, and warm donuts hits hard. And sometimes you just have to give it what it wants. On those kinds of days, this recipe Baked "Deep Fried" Oreos is pretty handy to have around... Reason #1 being: it's pretty mess-free. And on a gotta-have-fried-food-day, odds are you … [Continue reading...]

Maple Glazed Pecans

Maple Glazed Pecans are incredibly easy to make and are so delicious on top of ice cream or yogurt, in salads, or on their own!

I’m crazy about these glazed pecans. They make everything more delicious– I like them on top of ice cream and cakes, in salads, mixed into yogurt, in snack mix and popcorn, on my peanut butter smeared apple, and about a million other ways. If you can eat it, maple glazed pecans will make it better. […]

Caramel Butter Pecan Cake Batter Dip

Caramel Butter Pecan Cake Batter Dip is so easy and a total crowd pleaser! #safeway #sweepstakes #ad

I love the rich, decadent, buttery flavors of a butter pecan dessert. Although Butter Pecan doesn’t get a lot of time in the spotlight (it seems like Chocolate Peanut Butter and Funfetti hog it all), I think it’s really the ultimate in comfort food desserts. It reminds me of summer time. Not summer time now […]

Easy Homemade Marshmallow Fondant

Homemade Marshmallow Fondant can be made in a stand mixer in no time at all, with very little hand kneading, and tastes so much better than store bought!

A week or so ago (is time blurring for anyone else these days??), my baby brother became an Eagle Scout. Having 4 brothers who have all gone through the scout program, I’ve been to my fair share of Court of Honor ceremonies! For the last two ceremonies, my mom has talked me into making a […]

Chocolate Cherry Cola Cake

Chocolate Cherry Cola Cake | Recipe + super cute Cherry Coke Birthday party ideas! #getyourbettyon

This post is sponsored by Betty Crocker. View my disclosure policy here. We just wrapped up Birthday Season in our house, and I have to confess that I was a total planning-dud this year. Emma’s was okay, only because we did two parties for her (one pre-move, and one after). But even the more decent […]

Butterscotch Blondies

Butterscotch Blondies are buttery delicious and so easy to make!

These blondies are full of brown sugary, buttery goodness! And, if you’re like me, you’ll also make them chock-full of as many pecans as you can stuff into the batter! (I’m obsessed with pecans). But those are totally optional. If you’re just looking for buttery golden perfection without the crunch, you can omit the pecans. […]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Brookies are a perfect combination of brownies and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. No need to choose just one or the other!

I was going to try and wait until the end of August to start posting pumpkin recipes. Honestly, I was. But once I had this recipe on the brain, I was just way too excited to wait! Obviously, the best part about “brookies” is that you don’t have to decide between making and eating a […]

Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread

Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread | www.somethingswanky.com

  Quick Breads are great for all sorts of reasons. Of course, the obvious: because they’re quick. With no yeast involved, you get the benefits of eating freshly baked bread faster. Plus there’s none of that pesky omg-is-it-gonna-rise-right??? business. Definite perk. Another benefit? It sort of has a cake-like texture. And when you’re making a […]

Applesauce Brownies

These Applesauce Brownies have absolutely no refined sugar, no butter/oil, and use whole wheat flour!

I always have such a struggle with recipe ideas for back-to-school time. It seems like most food bloggers take one of two approaches (within the dessert realm in which I live…): cute-sy back to school food (you know, food that looks like an apple or a bag of treats with a cute teacher poem) or […]

Reese’s Pieces Rice Krispie Treats

Reese's Pieces Rice Krispie Treats

  I love Rice Krispie Treats. I mean, I know everyone loves them. But, like, I really love them. Mostly because I am the world’s most major procrastinator. I live my life on the “last minute.” I know some people make it sound like a fun thing, saying people like us are “spontaneous,” or that […]
