    March is supposed to roar in like a lion and go out like a lamb, but let's face it: a great many of us are still stuck dealing with ferocious temperatures. Instead of cursing Mother Nature, we should use the cold as a great excuse to keep whipping up hearty, delicious soups.

    Crock-Pot Cream of Chicken & Wild Rice Soup was inspired by a similar dish served up at Panera Bread -- got to love that. It is dead easy to make and cooks in either 7 to 8 hours on low or 4 to 5 hours on high heat. Just pop all of the ingredients -- most of which you'll probably have in your fridge or pantry -- into your slow cooker and head off to work or, even better, hightail it to the salon for a pedicure since sandal weather has to be right around the corner.

    Here's how to make this perfect Crock-Pot soup.

    Happy Cookie Dough Week! This is a week food bloggers are posting creative and tempting recipes featuring cookie dough. (What a delicious thing for them to do, right?!?) This cookie dough cake roll recipe by Jocelyn Delk Adams of Grandbaby Cakes caught my eye this morning and now I'm craving it like crazy. Cookie dough or cake -- why choose between the two? Why not have both? In this recipe, the "cookie dough" filling for the jelly roll-style cake is eggless, so you don't have to worry about it being safe to eat raw.

    Layer cakes can be real showstoppers. There's something about cutting into a delicious, homemade cake and finding out what beautiful tastes and colors lie inside. It's like a surprise in your dessert!

    If it's chocolately, warm, and gooey, I'm there with a spoon in one hand and a carton of vanilla ice cream in the other. Because nothing is better than warm gooey chocolate with vanilla ice cream slowly melting into it. Oh my gosh, my mouth is watering right now.

    Anyway, my tastebuds did a little flip of excitement when I found this recipe, because it basically requires no work. You mix a few simple ingredients into the crock-pot, set that thing, and move on with your life for a few hours. When you come back, the perfect chocolate cake will be waiting for you.

    Has spring finally sprung? Or is it too soon to hope? After such a long, cold, seemingly never-ending winter, now's the time to put away those comfort food recipes and perhaps try something a little lighter, a little sweeter, just in time for spring. These divine lemon cream sandwich cookies from Epicurious are both gorgeous and super easy to make. The bright colors and fresh citrus will make you forget about your winter blues in no time.

    Keep in mind, though, to get the cookies super fluffy, you do have to chill the dough for four hours, up to one day. At least for the best results. Still, you can make them two days ahead so you can enjoy these little, sweet, tart sandwiches of heaven whenever you so please.

    Well, it's officially spring, folks! And with the weather finally getting slightly sunnier and warmer, we can't help but think of ice cream ... like, mmm, rocky road! Who can resist the combo of marshmallows, chocolate, and nuts? Even so, you might also feel like it's still a bit too chilly out to get your ice cream fix on. Fair enough.

    Luckily, Rocky Road BARS exist! Actually, enjoying the marshmallow, chocolate, and toasted pecans combo warm right out of the oven could put the ice cream to shame! Ah, who am I kidding? It's a flavor enjoyed in no matter what form!

    But if you're feeling like going the bars route, here's the outrageous recipe ...

    With spring just a few days away, it seems like we should be breaking out the barbecue and abandoning our favorite winter comfort foods. But not so fast! There's still a chill in the air, which is a good thing, because it means we have the perfect excuse to try this amazing, sumptuous recipe for Slow Cooker Coconut Hot Chocolate.

    Yes, you heard that right. Your Crock-Pot truly is the magical cooking tool that keeps giving. You probably already know how to whip up a mean beef stew in your slow cooker, but the rich flavors in hot, tasty beverages like this one are only intensified when you let them sit on low for a few hours. Mmmm ... kinda makes you yearn for a longer winter, doesn't it?

    Toffee is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. When I spot a Heath Bar or a Skor Bar while I'm in line at the grocery store, or at the drug store, or in my dreams, I have a hard time NOT buying it and immediately consuming it as fast as humanly possible. Thankfully for me and my expanding-waistline (#foodbaby), toffee is also one of those things that's pretty difficult to make at home.

    It's not impossible, and if you're willing to invest in a candy thermometer, and you have a lot of patience, you can whip up a batch of the sweet crunchy stuff whenever you want in the comfort of your own home. But that's just way too much work for me. That's why when I'm at home without my beloved Heath or Skor to provide me with comfort, I'm partial to the 3-Ingredient Toffee Cookie Bars.

    Nothing can impress your family or friends quicker than a "homemade" pie. I put "homemade" in quotes, because, as much as I'd love to make my dough from scratch, that's a rarity. Homemade dough is time-consuming, and, if you're me, it doesn't always come out right.

    But that doesn't mean that you can't still have a truly unbelievable pie.

    Every spring, my go-to pie is a wonderfully delicious strawberry pie. It's sweet; it's juicy; and it's always a crowd-pleaser. If you're looking for a super tasty dessert to serve to guests, look no further, friends. Yum.
