the sweetest of them all

Keeping with the cooking theme of yesterdays post {here}, I have to share this recipe I recently came across. “Vanilla Bean, Cheesecake, Fudge Brownies, with Salted Caramel” Well if that isn’t all my favorite sweets wrapped up in one, I don’t know what is! I have to give you a disclaimer, this is hands down the most decadent dessert I have yet to make. I substituted regular brownie mix with gluten-free brownie mix, and used vanilla extract, instead of the bean, but besides that I followed the recipe exactly. I think next time, I will pour the caramel after the brownie is sliced, it was super rich and soaked in caramel sauce. Looking for a super sweet treat? This is an easy recipe to try!


We all deal with stress in different ways, some go for long jogs, others have a drink {or 7}, some take naps, but for me I turn to the kitchen! Baking has always been my thing, even from a young age. My life has been SO busy lately, I haven’t even had a few hours to get the oven going and hang out in the kitchen. I do however have a large number of treats that are next on the list to bake. So until I get around to baking {I will share when I do}, here are some inspirational sweet treats that are next on my list! {side note: mine will not look nearly this perfect, but hey a girl can dream}
