Puppy Chow, aka Muddy Buddies…have you heard of it? I remember the first time I tried it, back in high school. I thought the name was SO weird – but the taste was far from weird! The classic version is made with peanut butter and chocolate mixed into chex cereal and topped with powdered sugar, and everyone in my school was obsessed with it. Little bags of puppy chow were the first thing to disappear from the bake sale tables! We had a lot of bake sales in high school. I can only imagine how excited everyone would have been if someone brought in this Cake Batter Puppy Chow!

The recipe comes from my friend Lynn at Fresh April Flours! Today I am helping her celebrate the release of her cookbook! She wrote a cookbook of over 20 puppy chow recipes, and this is one of the featured recipes.

Lemon Brownies

These bars are called Lemon Brownies because they have the thick and fudgy texture of a brownie! They are made with white chocolate and are full of citrus flavor!

I love baked goods (no surprise there). Every recipe I post, I truly love – otherwise, I wouldn’t share them with you. But I definitely play favorites. And these Lemon Brownies are one of the best things I have ever made. I can’t believe I am saying that about a recipe that does not include chocolate or peanut butter, but it is true. I love, love LOVE these lemon brownies. I literally could not stop eating them. I never considered myself a lemon dessert person, but I guess I am!! TheBetterHalf’s love for lemon must be rubbing off on me.

Happy Friday everybody! Is anything better than Friday? I really don’t think so! Sure you still have to wake up and go to work or school – but the promise of the weekend is ahead. It is such a great feeling! And what better way to celebrate Friday than with cookies – carrot cake cookies to be exact. How’s that for some alliteration?!

These aren’t just any carrot cake cookies – these are for the Mystery Dish challenge! That’s right, it is already time for another Mystery Dish challenge. In case you missed some of my other posts, Mystery Dish is a fun group that I’m part of with some of my blogging friends. Every month, the host sends out a list of ingredients, and we have to come up with something using the “mystery” ingredients. It is kind of like the show Chopped, with a lot less pressure!

Is everyone getting excited for Valentines Day? I must admit, I have never really been into Valentine’s Day.  It was just never my thing (somewhere, TheBetterHalf breathes a huge sigh of relief…).  However I’ve crossed over to the food blogger dark side – you know, when you post recipes way before the actual holiday (like my Thanksgiving spread) and get overly excited for every little holiday (I mean who wouldn’t want to celebrate national cookie day!).  And really, when candy and cute colors like pink and red and adorable sprinkles are involved – well how can I not be on board with that?! So I guess I was wrong – I am into Valentine’s Day! And so I made you a perfect recipe for Valentine’s day – Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies….
