Butterfinger Peanut Butter Creme Oreo truffles made from crushed Oreos (with peanut butter creme filling) and crushed Butterfinger candy mixed in with softened cream cheese, coated in white almond bark. Delicious little Oreo balls that are easy to make at home, and are very popular with kids and adults alike!
I’ve always wanted to make Oreo truffles, and this was my very first try. The truffles turned out quite well: they looked gorgeous, did not fall apart, the almond bark coating process went smoothly. Which just shows how easy it is to make these cake balls.
Grinding the Oreos and then Butterfinger candy and mixing it all in with softened cream cheese is the easiest part of the recipe. The more challenging portion is dipping the Oreo balls in melted white chocolate (or almond bark) to create a beautiful coating. To ensure easy coating process, I definitely recommend using the easy-to-handle almond bark baking bar that can be easily found at Walmart. It melts well, doesn’t seize as easily as regular white chocolate, and it stays nice and melty while you’re coating the truffles. [click to continue…]

Delicious crepes stuffed with peanut butter, Nutella and topped with strawberries in syrup. If you love chocolate and peanut butter – you’ll love these! Strawberries are soaked in sugar for 30 minutes to make them sweeter, softer, and more flavorful. You don’t even have to stuff these crepes with strawberries to the brim, just add a couple of strawberries inside the crepe, and then sprinkle it with powdered sugar like this:
To assemble, spread Nutella over one half of the crepe (or in the center of it), then add swirls of peanut butter:
Add strawberries: [click to continue…]
Strawberry banana bread muffins – I made these recently because I had too many strawberries and needed a delicious and easy recipe to use them up. I reincarnated my favorite, time-tested banana bread recipe to make it into muffins, and it worked perfectly!
They came out delicious. A favorite family breakfast! For 12 muffins I used only 1/3 cup butter and 1/3 cup Greek yogurt, which creates a nice, rich texture, and makes these muffins healthier and lower in saturated fats.
Because strawberries tend to make desserts very moist, I like to store these muffins covered and refrigerated. When refrigerated, these can last 2 weeks and still taste fresh like you just made them. [click to continue…]

The salad dressing is both sweet and sour, and very creamy! [click to continue…]

Delicious blueberry Greek yogurt cake made in a springform baking pan. I love using Greek yogurt in baking, as it gives a richer texture to the cake batter.
You can use either a 9×3 springform pan (like I did) or a 9 inch round cake pan. The cake comes out just of the right height (not too short and not too tall), with the texture resembling clafoutis. Keep in mind it’s not an overly tall cake – but that’s how it’s supposed to be! Very soft and moist from Greek yogurt and the berries. [click to continue…]

I made these strawberry cream cheese cookies two days ago, and they are AMAZING! They taste like a strawberry cake but in a cookie form! Thanks to the cream cheese and the strawberries, the texture is very soft!
My husband says these are some of the most delicious cookies I’ve ever made, and he has already eaten quite a few of them!
Because the cookies are soft, they are best kept refrigerated in an airtight container. Not only will this preserve them longer, it will also keep these soft cookies intact and keep the strawberries taste fresh! [click to continue…]
