Spooky, scrumptious Halloween PEEPS + how to make Kandy Kebabs!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year–Halloween time! I basically consider the entire month of October as Halloween, and in the months leading up to it–starting in July, no joke–I begin my Halloween preparations: buying decorations, planning my costume, deciding what types of crafts I’ll make, and stockpiling Halloween treats. Right now there are 2 candy dishes at home, and 1 at work, absolutely stuffed with Halloween candy…my sweet tooth goes into overdrive during […]

Celebrate springtime and Easter with sweet gluten-free treats from PEEPS!

Winter in the Philadelphia area is never any fun. It’s cold, gray, and snowy. Each year, I have to really push myself to remember that the weather’s only temporary and that springtime and sunshine are only a few days away.

As many of you can attest to after having spent the weekend hunkered down at home while it snowed for more than 24 hours straight, only to emerge the next day and spend hours digging out your plowed-in cars…winter on the East Coast really stinks. Here in the Philly area, we got—depending on the specific town—over two feet of snow, with my little burg coming in at around 26 inches. 26 inches of snowfall in […]

A PEEP-tastic year in review

For those of you who don’t know, I’m crazy about PEEPS® marshmallow treats. In case you need proof: Each holiday, PEEPS are always among my favorite treats, and I always seek them out–from the pumpkin PEEPS during the fall to the gingerbread Peeps during the winter, and the traditional chicks and bunnies during spring I stockpile PEEPS from various holidays–my snack drawer in the kitchen still has a few packs of gravestone-shaped PEEPS left over […]
