Hershey’s New Chocolate Spreads

This is a sponsored post from Hershey’s Chocolate, and the timing couldn’t be more brilliant because oh hi, I’m 847 weeks pregnant with 15 babies and funneling chocolate into my facial orifice by the mountain loads.

Strawberry Pastry Bites

O BEAUUUUUTIFUL FOR SPAAAACIOUS SKIES, FOR AMBER WAVES OF GRAAAAAIN. Oh, hey. I made dessert! But it’s a Bev-style dessert, where there’s no crying or sweating involved.

Crostini with Peaches, Blue Cheese and Honey (& a Giveaway!)

These. It would be ridiculous for me to attempt to put into human words just how monumentally delicious these crostini are.  Just imagine yourself on the kitchen floor, in a puddle of your own drool mixed with a little honey, body limp, mind numb, and a trail of expletives escaping your lips. Got that? NO […]
