Pretzel Berry top view

This week on Ultimate Recipe Swap we’re sharing berry recipes. Unfortunately, I did not have a screaming sale on berries nor do I have berries growing in my backyard or the near vicinity where I could go pay to pick. So, I used frozen berries. Yes, yes, I did. And while probably not as tasty […]

Super Simple Fudge

Eagle Brand Fudge

Growing up fudge was a Christmas tradition at our house. My mom usually made a very simple version using marshmallow creme. I’ve followed in her footsteps — until this year.
