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…

Resolution Recipe 7: Almond Date Breakfast Bars


Getting caught up on recipes and posts before school starts up so here’s the last one I have in the queue that I’m getting around to posting about. These bars are really easy to make but they do require a few different ingredients you probably don’t have in your pantry. These include dates and wheat…

Resolution Recipe 6: Chocolate Chip Brioche Pretzels


I am not going to lie…this recipe killed me in so many ways. I earn my novice status with many recipes but my badge should be gold after making these. I know they may look like pretzels and they may even look good to the untrained eye, but I had so many issues with this…

Homemade Roasted Chipotle Salsa


Alright dear readers. I am not a great cook. I’m not even a cook for goodness sake. I’m just a recipe follower that enjoys writing about my experiences in the kitchen. Novice status, confirmed. However, once in a blue moon, I have a creative moment of genius. This salsa is my latest genius moment that…

Resolution Recipe 5: Whole-Wheat Raspberry Ricotta Scones


    Back to the blogging! Feels like it’s been awhile, but oddly enough I’ve been in the kitchen more then usual so I have a few posts coming your way. Let’s start with this one! I made these scones back on February 1st. I think I made more mistakes with these then I would…

Resolution Recipe 4: Gingerbread Spice Dutch Baby


If you’re looking for a simple and fun breakfast idea that is outside of the norm, then try this little guy. Such a quick and easy thing to throw together and the sky is the limit for what you can add Deb has one on her website that is great for this season since cherries are plentiful …check…

Resolution Recipe 3: Plum Poppy Seed Muffins


Okay, we’re back in business! Happy to be blogging once again. Thanks for your patience loyal readers. I hope this is worth it! I actually just made these muffins yesterday because even though this recipe was next in the book (back in January),  it wasn’t plum season. I figured I would postpone this recipe and…

Resolution Recipe 2: Cinnamon Toast French Toast


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…

Resolution Recipe 1: Peachy Sour Cream Pancakes!


Happy New Year! Hope you had a wonderful time celebrating with family and friends! It’s time to get started with resolutions and I’m happy to say that I’ve made it into day two and been mostly successful….I’ll take it :o) As you know (since you’re a faithful follower of this blog…), one of my New…

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…

Olive Garden Bread…rolls


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…

Bacon and Corn Griddle Cakes….MY WAY!


What to make when you’ve lost your wisdom teeth and cringe at the thought of eating something crunchy…..I’m not sure if you’ve had the same dilema but that’s what has been on my brain recently since getting my wisdom teeth pulled on Friday. I was lucky and didn’t have any swelling or major jaw pain…
