Pear Cake

Pear Pecan Cake (5)

Cold winter weekends have, if nothing else, provided the opportunity to hibernate in the house, bake, and binge on Netflix. One of my favorite fruits is the pear, so while it’s in season I happily include it in my lunch as often as possible. It was a no-brainer, then, when I came across a Pear Cake recipe.  Continue reading

S’Mores Truffle Pops

Smores Pop (1)

Typically our marshmallow-themed recipes provide uses for our Sweet Jumbles marshmallows in cooking or baking recipes. This month, we don’t exactly do that. This recipe teaches you to actually making some marshmallow creme on your own. Since the marshmallow theme still stands strong, we hope you’ll like this slight change. This recipe for S’Mores Truffle Pops, while not difficult, does involve several steps, a bit of hurry up and wait, and one important tool: the kitchen torch. If you don’t have a kitchen torch, you could carefully try this over an open flame. But use caution – it could end badly. Continue reading

Fortunately, I had a plan that required minimal stovetop effort and was super easy.  S’mores Popcorn Balls.  Not only are these easy, but compared to many sweet treats they are lower in calories!
