• Brown Butter Cereal Bars

    Looking to make something super easy, super satisfying and probably already have everything in your kitchen?  I got you! These are upgraded “Krispie” treats with decadent browned butter and a touch of salt. You can really use any plain cereal here… Chex, Cheerios, Rice Krispies, Corn Flakes etc etc. I’d stay away from fruit flavored cereals, but chocolate would work! Last time we made this we used a combo of Cheerios and Rice Chex!

  • Bourbon Apple Crisp

    Apple crisp. Talk about a dessert that is a hit any season. Summer BBQ’s, Fall gatherings, Winter holidays and Spring brunches. This one is extra special with addition of bourbon, it adds a little more depth!  The gluten free topping is so buttery and delicious! Serving with vanilla ice cream is definitely encouraged.

  • Easter Baskets

    Who else feels like, “What day is it”? I know Easter is coming… and I know I need to hurry up and help the Easter Bunny make some lovely Easter Baskets for my kids. Trying to keep everything as normal as possible and Easter happens to be one of my favorite holidays! Here are a few little things for kids of all ages, parents included. And some sweet decorating items too!   Hot Chocolate on a Stick – How cute are these with the Easter Eggs on top? Jelly Cat Stuffed Frog – Because it can’t be all bunnies and he is so cute! Bitsbox – We love this kid’s coding…

  • Graham Toffee Candy

    Graham crackers smothered in vanilla toffee & dark chocolate with a sprinkle of pecans… I really struggled to name this recipe… it is not a cookie. Is it bark? Is it candy? Is it the so called “Christmas Crack”? Let’s not limit this to Christmas because it could (and should) be made all year round… so let’s call it Graham Toffee Candy! I was playing around with the “Christmas Crack” that is all over Pinterest and thought “This would taste so much better with graham crackers… and maybe pecans”.  I was right! The candy here is a ridiculously easy vanilla toffee that is divine! You could swap in butterscotch chips…

  • Sweet & Spicy Pecans

    Okay, is it just me or do the Holidays seem like a full on contact sport this year? So much to do and everyone is in a rush! I almost got slammed backing out of a parking spot today… It makes me want to hole up in my house watch Christmas movies and bake all things Christmas! These nuts fit nicely into that category! My mom used to make something similar as a kid and I loved them. I can’t take credit for these delicious pecans, I found the recipe on Smitten Kitchen (she is fabulous… check her out! Her latest cookbook made my November Favorites and My Holiday Wishlist!)…

  • My Holiday Wishlist

    I have had lots of requests to know what I would like to see under the tree this Holiday season. To be honest… not much! I don’t feel like there are many things I NEED… okay, slippers, I need new slippers. That said, there are a few things I have been eyeing… Please note: A Modern Housewife LLC has affiliate relationships with multiple brands.
