Extra Fudgy Dark and White Chocolate Zebra Brownies

I called these Zebra Brownies for obvious reasons. The white chocolate drizzle adds a great contrast against the dark chocolate and in taste with the richness of the dark chocolate in these delectable brownies. Bake a batch today, see how easy this recipe is using a brownie mix while still having these taste homemade by just adding a few ingredients.

Crispy Baked French Fries

Who doesn’t love French Fries? We love them in my house. The problem is the fat and calories from frying the potatoes. The best solution? Baked Fries. These taste so crunchy and crispy just like the fried potatoes we are used to but so much better for us and just as delicious. Even better actually. Eat up without the guilt.

Crockpot Tuscan Vegetable Beef Barley Soup

Soups are a staple in my house. We have soup for dinner at least twice a week. And, that for every season. Especially when I make the soups in my handy dandy crockpot. It’s so easy. No fuss and always delicious. Here is our newest version of barley soup. This time I added beef. You can easily make it without the meat too. We happen to have two other barley soups on the blog, one with chicken and one vegetarian. Check them both out and be sure to try this one too. The meat falls apart and is so tender while the soup is so hearty and tasty.

3 Simple Steps To Steam/Froth Milk In The Microwave

Coffee café drinks can be so expensive. Lattes, Cappuccinos, Steamed Hot Coffees and Teas. You name it. What’s in all these drinks is the steamed/frothy milk that either sits on top all fluffy or in a pretty decoration. Sometimes the milk is  mixed in one of these tempting hot drinks.  When I first learned about steaming and frothing the milk at home, I couldn’t believe how easy this was to do. 30 seconds and 3 easy steps. That’s it! Check it out and make one of your favorite drinks right at home for the fraction of what if would cost in a coffee café.

Copycat “Oldie” Starbucks Café Mocha

Years and years ago this hot drink was one of Starbucks original specialty drinks on their menu. All these years later, it’s still very popular even though they added so many more snazzy hot and cold drinks. The names alone are snazzy.  So many to choose from! This is still my favorite. We make it at home a lot. The combo of coffee and chocolate is so perfect. One complements the other.  On top of all that, making it at home saves a nice amount of money. You know how expensive it can run just for one hot drink. Try this simple to make recipe. It’s a winner!

Small Batch Baked Pumpkin Donuts

We love donuts around here. In fact, for awhile we were on a donut run. Whenever we saw a donut shop, we would stop and buy a few varieties and sample them. This all started about 7 months ago when visiting my daughter Tori at college. There was a famous donut shop that everyone raved about. You knew this right away when there was a line out the door of the small shop. I bought a few to take back with me on the plane to bring to my husband and son. Since then, we were going all over Long Island on Sundays scouring out bakeries and donut shops looking for the best of the best. Well, this couldn’t go on, for two reason, too much sugar and way too fattening to eat a donut or two every weekend. I knew we still loved our donuts and wanted to try make our favorite flavor, pumpkin. There are already two more donut recipes right here on SSD that are just as delicious: Wacky Chocolate Baked Donuts and Best Baked Donuts Ever!   You must try them as well as this yummy recipe. We now have three we love. More flavors to come in the future I’m sure of it!
