Carrots & Dirt Cupcakes {with chocolate covered strawberries}

Carrots & Dirt Cupcakes | www.somethingswanky.com

So…. it would be a total lie to say that “spring has sprung.” Because it snowed yesterday. The entire day. Big, huge flakes. #ugh At the rate we’re going, it’s going to be April and I’ll still have my cute “Let it Snow!” snowman sign on my porch. I just don’t feel like I can […]

Homemade Cookie Dough Oreos

Homemade Cookie Dough Oreos | www.somethingswanky.com

Did you get a chance to try Oreo’s newest limited edition flavors? In January they released two new flavors: Cookie Dough and Rice Krispies Treats. In all honesty, I actually prefer the Rice Krispies Treats flavor– which is weird for me, since I’m a chocolate girl. Regardless, I thought the cookie dough flavor would be […]

Banana Pudding

Banana Pudding | www.somethingswanky.com

Remember how I said a lot of our family recipes involve Cool Whip? At the time, I was super excited to be posting a family recipe that I considered to be more “worthy” of blogging about, because it was totally, 100% from scratch. Unlike the majority of the recipes in our family recipe book which […]

Cookie Dough Buckeyes | www.somethingswanky.com

I am CRAZY stupid in obsessed with these. I’ve never even made traditional buckeyes, but I can’t say that I’m ever going to get around to it. One bite of these chocolate chip cookie dough buckeyes has convinced me that this is the only buckeyes recipe I’m ever going to need. So. Just in case […]

Lemon Poppyseed Banana Bread

Lemon Poppyseed Banana Bread | www.somethingswanky.com

Something about making Red Velvet Banana Bread last month was so mentally liberating. It totally freed me of any flavor constraints I was subconsciously assigning to banana bread– although I was having plenty of fun within the confines of peanut butter and chocolate (see the recipes at the bottom of this post)! But I loved […]

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Pancakes

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Pancakes | www.somethingswanky.com

These are my most recent favorite pancakes! I actually discovered them since I’ve been trying to follow the Simply Filling plan (Weight Watchers). Most of your carbs are fairly restricted on the plan, but one of the few you are allowed to eat freely is OATMEAL. After seeing that on the list of plan-approved foods, […]

Carrot Cake Crinkle Cookies

Carrot Cake Crinkle Cookies | www.somethingswanky.com

The sun was out today!!! Which is beyond exciting to me. I am SO ready for spring for so many reasons: warmer weather and sunshine, my husband’s graduation, and finally moving back to my hometown in North Carolina! Lots of fun things we have to look forward to in the coming months. Since I’m not […]

Chocolate Dipped Macaroons

Chocolate Dipped Macaroons | www.somethingswanky.com

I used to live in Utah not so long ago. And for the first 6 (of my 7) years of my residence there, I thought I hated Utah, because I could not handle all of the snow every winter. In retrospect, the school years weren’t so awful. I lived pretty close to campus, so the […]
