Fudgy M&M Magic Bars

Fudgy M&M Magic Bars

If you love M&M's, you're gonna go crazy for these cookie bars! An oatmeal crust, with a thick, delicious fudge center and topped with oatmeal crumble and loads of M&M's make these bars incredible! The ultimate chocolate treat! I would probably have to say that M&M's are my all-time favorite candy.  I love the plain variety, although the peanut version comes in a close second.  My affection for this candy coated little piece of chocolate deliciousness stems from a candy jar that originated at my grandmas house.  No such candy jar existed in our house, so when we would go to grandma's that clear mason jar filled with colorful deliciousness would speak to me.  I would go in by the handful, and Grandma was totally okay with it!  Have I ever mentioned how much I love my Continue Reading...

Banana Pecan Sheet Cake with Maple Frosting

Banana Pecan Sheet Cake with Maple Frosting

A classic banana cake brought to a whole new level!  Moist, sweet cake baked with pecans and topped with a delicious maple frosting, and brown sugar glazed pecans, this cake is perfect for any and every occasion! As a kid, whenever we had a few over-ripe bananas sitting on the counter, we made one of two things - banana bread, or banana cake.  To this very day, both are dear favorites of mine. Particularly with banana cake, the wonderful aroma that comes from the oven immediately takes me back to my childhood.  Enjoying a big slice with lots of frosting was always such a treat. Now that I live in the south, I've turned this classic banana cake from my childhood into a #SweetandSouthern dessert by adding plenty of pecans and the South's favorite sugar, Dixie Crystals!  However, Continue Reading...
