Resolution Recipe 8: Apricot Breakfast Crisp


We’re back! I’m really excited to have dusted off my cookbook and start back into working through it one recipe at a time. The last time I made one of these recipes was in 2014. That’s 3 years ago and when I was still dating my husband. A LOT of life has happened since then…

Recipe 2 is complete and I’m excited to say how easy this resolution has been so far. It’s always a major drag to start a New Year’s Resolution and within the first week you know just how hard it is going to be to keep it up. However, before I get too excited, let’s consider…

Summer S’mores Cookie Bars


Don’t judge…I know my last post was preaching about how I’m doing low-calorie dieting and cooking. However, I was asked to bring a dessert to a wedding reception bbq for a couple in my life group and the bride mentioned s’mores as an idea.  So, I decided to hunt around for a recipe for a…

Super Easy No Bake Eclair Cake = Childhood Memories!


I’m sure you have a dessert that is SO reminiscent of being a kid. Maybe it’s dirt, or puppy chow (muddy buddies…or whatever else you called it!), even certain store bought cookies bring me back to being a kid. My mom use to always let us get a box of those little circus animal cookies…

It all started with a chicken…


I am super proud of this guy…by far one of my more successful first attempts at a first time recipe. Which means if I can do it…get excited….you can too. I’ve been wanting to make a home made chicken pot pie since December. One of my room mates Emily made one for our house Christmas…

Who doesn’t love Olive Garden bread sticks?! Those fantastic things are often times the only reason I like going…that and their salad. Yum! I think these take a close 2nd to Pat & Oscar’s delicious bread sticks. If you’ve never had a chance to try the breadsticks from Pat and Oscar’s then get yourself over there this…
