I love making this organic, but it's easy to make however you choose. Ingredients: 1 Corn on the Cob 3 Plum Tomatoes 1/4 cup of red onion 1 … [Read more...]

Recipe: Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups are always a comfort food and at the top of my list if I'm wanting something chocolate-y.

I finally have a recipe now that are a true copycat of them, but … [Read more...]
