My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Chocolate Covered Crackers

One of my new Texas friends introduced me to these delicious treats this Christmas and I was hooked. She said it was one of the easiest recipes she makes during the holidays; yet somehow, they are always the star of her cookie platters! Very easy to make, just takes a little hands-on time to assemble.
{ Prep Time: 25-30 mins / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: about 3 dozen }

2 sleeves reduced fat Ritz crackers (about 34 crackers per sleeve)
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
18 oz white chocolate chips
18 oz milk chocolate chips

1. First, gather all your ingredients:
2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
3. Spread a thin layer of peanut butter on 1 package of crackers. Top each with another Ritz cracker, forming a sandwich.
4. Melt white chocolate chips in a large microwave safe bowl ~ about 1 min on high ~ then stir. Melt in 30 second intervals (stirring in between each interval) until chocolate is completely melted.
5. Place a peanut butter sandwich on a fork and dip into melted chocolate. Let excess drip off, then place on parchment lined baking sheet. Repeat until half of the sandwiches are covered with white chocolate. Then repeat steps 2 and 3 with the milk chocolate chips until all sandwiches are done. Place in the fridge for 15 mins to set. Remove from fridge, then store in an airtight container.
These taste best with a large glass of milk! So yummy and relatively easy - just takes a little 'hands-on' time.
