As I write this I’m looking out my window at a beautiful sunny day.  Temperatures are in the 70′s and there’s a bit of a breeze.  I’m so excited!!!  This time of year thoughts turn to spending time outside and making fun, bright foods, like lemony treats.  I like to sip on real fresh lemonade every once in awhile and the kids get a kick making it with me.  That is exactly what came to mind when I took a bite of these delicious Lemon Sugar Cookies.

Homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs

Homemade Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs | Real Housemoms | #Easter #dessert

I remember as a kid that I couldn’t wait to get my Easter basket and tear into the Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs.  They were the best candy the Easter Bunny brought.  I mean they are like giant Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups,  maybe they’re the same size but there is a lot more peanut butter in them than in the cups so of course I love them!!!   I remember when I first had these No Bake Chocolate & Peanut Butter Bars I thought they were just like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup but in bar form.  When I was thinking about what I wanted to make for a fun Easter treat I decided it had to be these Homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs.

It’s hard to pass up the Easter candy isle at the grocery store, especially when you go with a five year old.  Once we were down that isle and we both saw the Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Cups we had no choice but to buy them and bake with them!  It had to be done, and we had to do it.   This is how our Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Egg Brown Sugar Bars were born.

Cool Mint Oreo Stuffed Fudgy Brownies

I can’t believe that we’re already about to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!!!!  Everything is going by so fast this year.  I do love all the great mint chocolate desserts that pop up this time of year.  I was so excited to see these cool mint Oreos in the store.  I have to say that I did eat WAY too many.   So what’s the logical decision when you realize you’ve gone through a package of them too fast?  Go to the store and buy another pack but this time bake them into a fudgy brownie, or more specifically, a Cool Mint Oreo Stuffed Fudgy Brownie, of course!   :) [Read more...]

Banana Nut Muffin

Banana Nut Muffin | Real Housemoms | #breakfast #muffin

Some mornings you just need a banana nut muffin.  Straight out of the oven with butter or cream cheese spread on it or just plain and amazing.  They’re simply one of the best comfort breakfasts of all time!  We got more rain yesterday and I just wanted to snuggle up on the couch drink my coffee and eat a muffin.  They’re just like a slice of banana bread but in a mini, personalized portion.  Plus, when you make a muffin you can bake them in a cute little paper wrapper that will help to brighten up your morning.  I mean just look at the cute bright yellow and white polka dot baking cups!  They brought a bit of sunshine to my breakfast yesterday.
