Superbowl Party Desserts

Superbowl is right around the corner, and with it comes parties.  I have to admit that I’m not a sports fan.  My favorite part of the day is the party food.  With all the attention on appetizers and dips, desserts tend to take a back seat during Superbowl.  Folks like me who have sweet teeth will appreciate 7 amazing Superbowl party desserts.

Granny’s Old-Fashioned Apple Pie

If you’re looking for the best apple pie recipe that you’ll ever eat, you’ve come to the right place.  This recipe comes straight from my Granny’s recipe box and stands the test of time.  It’s not surprising that apple pie is an American tradition.  You rarely find someone who doesn’t like it, so it’s a safe bet that granny’s old-fashioned apple pie will be a popular item.

You might think that old-fashioned apple pie is hard to make and tedious.  You might have visions of the woman stumbling out of the kitchen with tussled hair and flour all over her face and hands (and arms and clothes).  That’s not the case.

The hardest part of this entire recipe is peeling the apples! Continue reading →

Candied Grapes: Easy and Low-Cal

I’ve been getting over bronchitis and am having a hard time shaking it.  I didn’t even feel like snacking on all the goodies at our annual office-wide cookie exchange party at work.  I have to admit that I was a bit bummed.  My throat was sore and I had medicine-head.  Enter Leslie to the rescue with her candied grapes.

Aren’t these candied grapes beautiful?

Leslie has amazing “cheater” recipes.  She calls them cheater because they’re so, so simple, but taste so good.  I should have known Leslie would have something up her sleeve.

Leslie brought me a bowl of these candied grapes and told me to try one.  She said it would make my throat feel better.  I was skeptical.  I mean, a grape’s a grape, right?  

WRONG. Continue reading →

Cheater Peanut Butter Fudge

Full disclosure:  I’m obsessed with peanut butter.  I always have been.  I feel sorry for people with peanut allergies.  Goodness, what they miss out on!  I’m convinced that anything tastes good if you throw some PB on it.  It’s no surprise that I love peanut butter fudge.

When I was a kid, my mom made pans upon pans of peanut butter fudge.  I have to admit, she makes the best I’ve ever had.  I’m not so good at it.  If I’m not careful, mine turns out grainy.  Ugh!  Is there anything worse than grainy peanut butter fudge?

I have a recipe that is so good and so easy that you’ll want to run to the store to buy the ingredients right away.  You won’t have to stand over the stove with a candy thermometer.  And your candy won’t be grainy.  Guaranteed.

And even better…..it’s cheap to make.  My entire batch cost me about $4 to make.  I love anything that’s budget-friendly.
