Can I tell you just how much I love my job? No this time I’m not talking about my day job that I went to school for, for a bajillion years. Oh no I’m talking about my TKW job. The one where I get to be free, creative and don’t have to think. I can get my hands completely covered in orange food dye and don’t care. Yes that totally happened to me but it’s all good, nothing a little soap and water couldn’t take care of. It’s totally worth having a few orange fingertips as these are so delicious that honestly it took every ounce of restraint I had to not eat all of them before I finished the photo shoot.
Reddi-wip® is something that I have in my fridge at all time. Like I think it’s part of my wedding vows…’to have and to hold, to honor, love and cherish and to keep Reddi-wip® on hand at all time in the fridge’. LOL If you remember I created a No Bake Coconut Key Lime Mini Cheesecake Pie a while back for them and when they were looking or Spring and Easter recipes I knew exactly what I wanted to make.
Get your yum on with this ridiculously delicious no bake cheesecake recipe!

With these MVP Bars you’ll be the STAR of big game! A peanut butter pretzel crusted chocolate chip cookie topped with the most incredible chewy peanut butter marshmallow popcorn topping!
Oh how I love football season! The tailgating, the cheering on your favorite team, the yelling at the refs over calls you think are stupid (admit it – you do it too!), the game superstitions and the food. OMG the food! Let’s face it, if you’re not playing in the actual game, the food is the second most important thing. You need proper eats if you want to be “the house” that every one wants to be at for the big game. You could literally put out milk crates or couch cushions for folks to sit on but as long as you have a killer tv and even better food you’re place IS the hot spot (well that is unless you’re actually at the game).
When the folks from Orville Redenbacher® wanted a new recipe featuring their AMAZING (seriously it’s ridiculously good!) Movie Theater Butter Popcorn for the Big Game I was stoked! You see I have a slight obsession with this popcorn and movie theater popcorn. Ever since I was little, going to the movies and getting my very own tub of popcorn was a huge treat. All that butter and warm popcorn with a great movie – seriously perfect! Popcorn to me meant happy times. It was something we’d share as a family bumping hands in the buckets of popcorn trying to get the ‘best pieces”.
If you want a super moist, seriously delicious dessert you can make healthy orrrrr not so healthy then these Cranberry Zucchini Blondie Bars are for you! Just a few simple tweaks and you can go from angelic to sinful.
Okay so I have to tell you about this recipe or more so the response I got on Facebook when I asked if I should post this recipe now. You see I posed the question on Facebook if I should post this recipe now or not. You see with it being the first week in January everyone and their mother is trying to live up to their New Years resolutions of being on a diet, eating healthier and going to the gym. Now I’m all for that but not because of a resolution because let’s face it only about 8% of those that make these resolutions actually stick with it. Instead make it a lifestyle change. Anyway this recipe is one that you can make 2 ways – healthy and one that won’t weigh on your conscious or make you feel guilty (which is something I have issues with. Everything in moderation people and exercise but I digress). The other way is full on sinful – we’re talking butter, chocolate and hello… BUTTERCREAM!!!
Anyway so I posed this question – should I post it now or should I post like a salad or lettuce wrap but everyone gave a resounding “Post it Lor!”. However one person, dear Ms. Maggie…. oh dear Maggie, well she literally made me belly laugh out loud. Her initial response was “o m g….post it or i will hurt you..jk” When I read that I lost it because even though we’ve never met she’s been a part of the TKW Family for a while now and her posts always make me smile and giggle. Through our chats and posts you get to know folks which one of the things I LOVE about social media and here. You become friends, family and build bonds.
What’s awesome and what I feel makes me so truly blessed is that I not only have that bond with Maggie but everyone in the TKW Family. If you haven’t stopped by the Facebook page, definitely stop by and say hi! Everyone is so warm and welcoming! Now before Ms. Maggie puts a hit out on me, let’s get to this dessert *wink*.
These Butterscotch Sweet Potato Raisin Muffins should be called Dessert Breakfast Muffins as they are perfect for breakfast but also perfect for dessert. They are seriously delicious, ridiculously moist and one of the best muffins you’ll ever eat!
So I have this girlfriend that I mean a hundred years ago that was so teeny in stature but had the most insane sweet tooth. She introduced me to many things when it came to food and eating. Her daily foods were broken up as such: Breakfast, Breakfast Dessert, Lunch Junior, Lunch, Mid-Day snack, Dinner Junior, Dinner and dessert. And through out the day were rogue pieces of candies. And she was teeny and kinda sorta exercised but she didn’t have to as she had the most insane metabolism. Now I mention her as while I was coming up with this recipe I wasn’t sure how the taste would be – would it be savory, sweet – could it be muffin enough?
I mean let’s look at the ingredients – roasted sweet potatoes. Up to a few years ago I wouldn’t be caught dead eating one of these things. They were just ‘weird’. They weren’t the type of taters I grew up on however Mr. Fantabulous loves them so I had to buy them. When I finally gave in and tried one it was like love at first bite! Now I’m obsessed with them and easily go through a 5lb bag a week. Next in this recipe we have raisins because I wanted to go with some texture and color other than well, burnt orange. You could omit it and go with chocolate if you wanted or even dried cherries. We then add in the basic staples – flour, brown sugar, leavening, salt, eggs. When I mixed it all together it was good but was just missing something. So the batter sat on the counter for a few while I opened up the fridge to grab a soda. As I was closing the door I spied a jar of opened butterscotch topping. I closed the door, stopped, re-opened it and pulled it out. “Hmmmm… would it work?” So like any good cook I took some batter on a spoon, poured on some butterscotch and tasted it. OH YEAH… it works! So into the bowl went the butterscotch.
If you recall, a few years ago I shared with you the Bakery Secret to getting Sky-High muffins like you see here. By baking them this way you’ll get sky high muffins every time. *disclaimer: this is assuming your leavening agents aren’t outdated or you overmixed the batter and caused the gluten to activate in your flour.
