Miniature Nutella Cakes…

I was bored this weekend and decided to throw something together that utilized a boxed cake mix. I have quite a few of these in pantry, but they rarely get any love…I just buy them because they’re on sale (it’s a compulsion of sorts). I also had new mini bundt pans that were begging to …

Pecan Bars…

As mentioned in a previous post, I received walnuts, pecans, and dried cranberries from Oh Nuts last week.
