This year at my annual holiday party, I decided to put a spin on my popular puppy chow recipe. I wanted it to be festive so I added red food coloring.
But not just any red food coloring. For this recipe to work you need red powdered food coloring. You can easily buy it on Amazon using the link above or pick it up at a baking supply store.

With the holiday season in full swing, I decided to turn my favorite winter drink into a cookie cup.

Today, I’m excited to share my new twist on an Apple Crumble, it’s so simple, but really takes this dessert from delicious, to absolute fall perfection! The new twist? Adding pumpkin spice to the crumble!
Pumpkin spice does not actually contain pumpkin, it’s simply the spices combined to make a pumpkin spice mix, which includes cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and allspice.
After Kurt took his first bite, his response was “you could open a bakery that just sells these!” They’re seriously that good, they can stand on their own up against any other fall dessert.
They’re the perfect little snack to serve at Halloween parties or to bring to a Friendsgiving celebration. I can definitely tell you that this will not be the only time I make these pumpkin cookies this fall!

Did you know that August 3rd is National Watermelon Day?
I know, I know, who comes up with these national food holidays? Kurt (and I’m sure a few other people) think they’re totally ridiculous, but as a foodie, I love any excuse to celebrate my favorite foods like National Ice Cream Day. Yes, please!
This scrumptious crock pot dessert is made by filling easy, homemade taco cups with slow cooked summer fruit, vanilla ice cream and caramel syrup!
Alright y’all, it’s time for a moment of honesty here, I’m totally obsessed with slow cookers!
Yes, it’s true, I am now the proud owner of SIX slow cookers!
I literally own a slow cooker from the 80’s, a slow cooker from the 90’s and now four slow cookers from this decade! And no, I’m not giving any of them up, no matter how many times Kurt tells me it’s ridiculous to have so many slow cookers! 😉
For every party I throw, I cook up at least one, usually three or four recipes in my slow cooker. Slow cooking for parties allows me to prep everything the night before, then let the slow cooker do all of the work while I enjoy the party!
My Superbowl party is the perfect example of this. Each year, I prep 4-5 slow cookers the night before with different meats. Chipotle Honey Pulled Pork, Smoked Chipotle Brisket and Beef Barbacoa are always on the menu! I slow cook them overnight, then set up a taco bar for the party. This means people can eat whenever they would like and I get to watch the game!
This week I decided to put together the perfect summer crock pot fiesta, featuring an appetizer, entree and dessert, all made in crock pots!
Today’s post was sponsored by ALDI. Thanks for supporting all of the WhitneyBond.com partners like ALDI!
Within just a few months of starting my food blog, my brother was diagnosed with celiac disease. Ever since then, I’ve made it my mission to create and share delicious gluten free recipes with the world!
When I partnered up with ALDI to share four tasty recipes from their Test Kitchen and Bon Appétit, I was so excited to see that they were all gluten free! I couldn’t wait to try their liveGfree® gluten free baking and cupcake mixes, and sample their fresh meat and produce!
Now I know you’re all dying to hear what we’re cooking up today, so without further ado, here’s the ALDI Gluten Free Menu:
S’Mores Cinnamon Rolls are the ultimate indulgent weekend breakfast! All the flavors of a delicious s’more are rolled up in a sweet & flakey cinnamon roll in this quick & easy recipe made with a can of Pillsbury crescent roll dough!
It’s Sunday morning, and I know what you’re thinking, how can I justify eating S’Mores for breakfast today? Well, I’ve got the answer, make S’Mores Cinnamon Rolls!
This delicious recipe for Sea Salt Blondies combines a sweet dessert with a pinch of salt for a scrumptious treat by itself or part of an ice cream sundae!
It’s official y’all, I’m Stagecoach bound, and I’m taking the blondies with me!
That’s right, for the next 4 days I’ll be camping out, grilling burgers, and listening to some of the best country music by Luke Bryan, Sam Hunt, Eric Church and Carrie Underwood!
I’ve wanted to go to Stagecoach for years. (For those that don’t know, it’s the country music version of Coachella, way more up this Oklahoma girls alley!) I’ve never had the opportunity to go until this year. Kurt and his friends have been camping out and attending the country music festival for 3 years, so I hopped on board. Of course, they immediately put me in charge of the food!
Gingerbread cupcakes are baked in half pint mason jars and topped with caramel cream cheese frosting in this delicious holiday dessert recipe!
While I pride myself on holding off of Christmas music, baking and decorating until after Thanksgiving, I have no problem starting the Christmas party the day after Thanksgiving, which is exactly what I’m doing on the blog today!
This recipe for Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls is easy to make and the end result is a deliciously sweet treat for breakfast or brunch!
While home for the holidays this year, I spent some time brainstorming gluten free breakfast ideas for Christmas morning.
Since finding out my brother was gluten intolerant over 3 years ago, our entire Christmas dinner has shifted to gluten-free. While we’ve now perfected the dinner menu, we still hadn’t come up with the perfect gluten-free breakfast to start off Christmas day… that was until this year.
This year I made Gluten Free Maple Bacon Pancakes, and they were awesome! That being said, I still had some other ideas that I brainstormed before the holiday that I couldn’t just let slip under the rug, this recipe for Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls being one of them.
Fresh blueberries and almond extract are added to my Grandma Meme’s easy pound cake recipe for one seriously delicious dessert!
One of my Grandma Meme’s go-to dessert recipes when I was a little girl was pound cake.
I can picture it right now, sitting in it’s covered glass cake stand on the middle of her kitchen table.
Growing up in Oklahoma, my grandma was the kind of grandma that didn’t just make dessert for special occasions. Well unless you consider every meal a special occasion, which I do because eating is pretty much my favorite thing!
We had milkshakes and cookies and cakes and pies. Oh the life of a child growing up across the street from a southern grandma. Oh yes, it was so good!
This Strawberry Shortcake recipe is a delicious dessert made with gluten free shortcake and filled with fresh strawberries and scrumptious Nutella!

Strawberry chocolate chip cheesecake filled wontons are a fun and delicious dessert recipe, perfect for parties and Valentine’s Day!
A couple of weeks ago I purchased a package of Wonton Wrappers at the grocery store.
They were conveniently located in the refrigerator section right next to where I was picking up some cheese and they screamed “Whitney, make some Wontons!” … so I did, of course. When wontons yell, you must listen. 😉
This dessert bread pudding is made with gluten free mini brownies and fresh strawberries for a scrumptious gluten free brownie bread pudding recipe!

This Gluten Free Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Cupcake Recipe topped with creamy peanut butter frosting is the best gluten free cupcake you’ll ever eat!
Last week I was really craving Reese’s Cups. Although I’m not a big candy person, when I do eat candy it’s always Reese’s!
Instead of going to the store like a normal person and purchasing a Reese’s Cup, I decided to make a “Reese’s Cup Cupcake” by filling the middle of a rich, delicious chocolate cupcake with a creamy peanut butter filling!
White Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Spice Cookies are a sweet and delicious treat combining the flavors of fall, perfect for Halloween parties and events!
Last weekend I was invited to attend a BBQ with a friend… about two hours before the BBQ. Being a food blogger, it is completely unacceptable to show up to a BBQ empty handed… even when you only have two hours notice!
I was trying to figure out what I had in my pantry that I could toss together that didn’t require a trip to the grocery store. Luckily I had a bag of white chocolate chips and a bag of Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses staring at me from the pantry.
It was one of those moments where you look at two items, a light bulb goes off and you immediately think “the two of you need to meet and become friends!”
Zesty, creamy, cherry lime filling is added to gluten free tart crusts & topped with maraschino cherries in this recipe for Mini Cherry Limeade Tarts!
Inspired by Summer Desserts and my favorite Sonic drink from childhood, I created these delicious Mini Cherry Limeade Tarts filled with zesty, creamy cherry lime filling and topped with fresh lime zest and maraschino cherries!
I made this dessert gluten free by creating a gluten free tart dough made with Premium Gold Gluten Free Flour blend.
The result was a super cute, super delicious treat, perfect for the summer BBQ I took them to yesterday!
