Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

Standard

Or as I like to call this recipe, “individual sweet potato casserole.”  No, this will never replace my mom’s amazing sweet potato casserole  at the big family Thanksgiving meal but it is a great (and tasty) way to make an individual sweet potato casserole when it is just two of you and you really don’t want a big dish.

Plus they are super cute and very easy to make!

Spoopy Ghost Brownies

Standard

There was a pot luck at work last week and I just couldn’t resist making these super cute (and delicious!) ghost brownies!  They went super fast too!

So if you have any Halloween fun planned this week I highly recommend these brownies.  Sure you can use a box mix if you are short on time but the homemade version is so quick and easy and tastes so delicious.

Trust me, homemade Rice Krispie Treats are so easy and so much better than the store bought thing!
