            I can't get these Blackberry Moscow Mules out of my brain ever since Colt made them the other night.
Our sweet neighbors showed up at the door step the other morning and dropped off a huge tub of blackberries so when Colt came home from work and spotted the fridge full of berries he became a mixologist.
It's my new fav must have drink!  
Check out how gorgeous they are and the flavor flav is totally out of this world even as a mocktail!
Perfect for a cocktail night at home or with company, what's not to love.

                One of my favorite things about this time of year is the abundance of blackberries.
I adore these juicy little gems.
Blackberry seasons in full swing and LJ has been out picking a bumper crop for me daily and freezing them for future use.
Have I told you how much I love that boy, he's great about helping out when I need him and guilting his brother and sister into helping him.
He even went out early the other morning to come home with fresh Blackberries to make these Blackberry Crumb Bars that are out of this world.
Who can pass on a crunchy layer of pressed crumb filled with blackberry filling and then a crunchy crumb topping.
Totally worth a face plant into the pan.
They are amazing plain but a scoop of vanilla ice cream makes them an extra special treat.
Be prepared I'm pretty sure more blackberry recipes are on the way with the way my kids been picking!

Flourless Brownie Peanut Butter Swirl Cookies

An easy to make flourless cookie with minimal ingredients. Filled with chocolate and peanut butter with the texture of a brownie.

               What is it about Chocolate and Peanut Butter that is just so irresistible?
I was having a serious craving the other day for my Fudge Brownies with Peanut Butter Swirl but I thought a cookie would be a fun change.
Flourless Brownie Peanut Butter Swirl Cookies were born in that moment.
These cookies are lusciously rich and perfect to curb all those chocolaty peanut butter cravings you might have.
But before you make these I have to warn you:
These must be consumed with a large glass of milk.
Now let me explain why you must do this. These cookies are so rich you'll need the icy cold milk to help wash down all their goodness.
I know you'll love these bad boys as much as we do.
