Penny’s Porch Treats

Why am I showing you a picture of my porch (with my corgi Finn for added cuteness)? Because I want to share with you something that I started doing last month during quarantine, I call them “Penny’s Porch Treats”. Once a week I make treats, bag them all individually, and then put them on a … Continue reading

Chewy Chocolate Caramel Bars

I made these on Tuesday, later afternoon, and this morning, Thursday, there is one left so I think it’s safe to say that they were a hit. I think we all can see how the Johnson family is going to come out of quarantine . . . 1 German chocolate cake mix 3/4 cup butter, … Continue reading

Disney Parks Churro Bites
