Beer Cheese Crackers with Beer Cheese Spread

Well, how was your 2012? All-in-all, mine was pretty fantastic!

Butterscotch Cheesecake Topped Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

I am kind of over pumpkin. ‘Tis the season for the pumpkin latte, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin mac and cheese, pumpkin oatmeal, and pumpkin EVERYTHING. I swear if I see another pumpkin recipe I may start punching things.
