easter candy mug cake
So with Easter now over, do you still have a lot of leftover chocolate Easter candy? If so, this is a great way to get rid of some. While most leftover candy recipes involve just throwing some candy into batter, this recipe uses up much more candy by using the candy to create the chocolate cake base too.

This recipe should work for most mini chocolate Easter candies like M&M’s, mini chocolate eggs, etc.

Not only is it a great way to use up a good amount of leftover candy, but it’s also super simple since it’s only 4 ingredients.

I first visited Eureka! Burger shortly after it first opened. Recently, we stopped in again to check out things now that they’ve had a chance to settle in.

We were there on a Wednesday night where they have a “steal the glass” special. Basically if you order a glass of the featured brew that night, you also get to keep the glass after.

Of course I had to get the featured beer that came with the free glass.

We also got a few beer flights

Truffle fries

On our last visit, we found the truffle fries soggy and the truffle flavor barely detectable. But after hearing very positive reviews, we decided to give it another chance. We definitely noticed an improvement. The truffle aroma was much more noticeable. The fries, while not as crisp as I like, weren’t too limp, though this dish is still best eaten with a fork.


I’ve felt a little bit like Martha Stewart lately. Normally, we eat out on weekends, but recently we’ve been staying in more and I’ve been cooking. Then I started making my own fruit leather. And now I’ve made my own energy bars.

I found a recipe for 3 ingredient energy bars and it was so simple, I just had to try it out.

The recipe is very easy. You use a food processor to mix together your energy bar ingredients, press it into a pan, chill, and it’s ready to go.
