Chocolate Turtle Candies

Hi folks. Jessica here, from All She Cooks. I'm so happy to be over here on Love Bakes Good Cakes contributing another recipe for you. I'm always so inspired by all the yummy creations Jamie comes up with, so to get to share a few of my own with her readers is so much fun.

Turtles for dessert?

Whether you say 'carmel' or 'car-a-mel', there is something about the combination of chocolate and that sweet buttery golden brown soft chewy candy. Yes... quite a few adjectives there, and let me tell you, it was hard to stop at just a few. Add in a pretzel and melt it all up, and we've got a sweet bite of perfection. If you're looking for a quick and easy snack recipe, or maybe a treat to share at the holidays, this one has you set. chocolate turtles

Quinoa with Broccoli {and feta!!}

Hi Everyone!  I just love summer and the fresh food that comes with it! Summer feels like it's over.... school started this week for us {whaaaa!} But, the garden food is still going strong. SO.. I'm using it to create fresh and healthy recipes for my family. Earlier this week we enjoyed this Quinoa with broccoli and feta for dinner and it was amazing. Serve it with tasty chicken sausage and your favorite salad for a great meal.

Crunchy Slaw with Citrus & Cilantro

Hello my #LoveBakesGoodCakesPeeps!  I hope you are all having a great summer.  I am summering in Alaska this year....because when one thinks of summer the first place that pops into your head is Alaska, right?  Okay, so it does have beaches.....cold beaches....but it also has glaciers - so that's pretty amazing!
