Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin Bread has to be one of my favorite quick breads. This pumpkin bread isn’t tooooo sweet. Just sweet enough. I have issues with hoarding cans of pumpkin during the Holiday season since sometimes you can’t find it as easily during other times of the year. And one never knows when you will be in the […]

Apple Pie Oatmeal

Apple Pie Oatmeal ….I’m telling the truth. I’m kinda in love with it. I quite the pre-packaged oatmeal years ago. You know how much sugar are in those?? Me, either, but I bet it’s a lot. Maybe I am a control freak and oatmeal isn’t rocket science, but I prefer to make my own. Overly […]

Cast-Iron Apple Cinnamon Crumble

Cast-Iron Apple Cinnamon Crumble just screams fall, dontcha’ think? **For a chance to win a copy of Curtis Stone’s cookbook, Good Food, Good Life..see below** Even though I made, photographed and DEVOURED this easy dessert, I can’t take credit for developing the recipe. This is part of  Cooking with Curtis for under $10 in conjunction […]

Cinnamon Hot Chocolate

I don’t know about you, but I try to save up all my calories and don’t like to waste them on silly things, like my morning coffee, ices tea, hot chocolate..etc. I find sugary drinks to be a complete waste of calories. I have been using artificial sweeteners for years in mainly my drinks, until […]

New Kitchen Reveal

Papa John’s is the Bomb Diggity

Whipped Feta Dip

I’ve been in hiding. The witness protection program has prevented me from blogging. I had to change my name, identity and move to an undisclosed location without access to the internet and the outside world. oh, you’re not buying it? Truth is, I’ve just been busy. Moving, kids, my full time job..yada yada. So basically […]

Easy Macaroni and Cheese

My kids hate macaroni and cheese. I know right? How is that even humanly possible? Oh and they don’t like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches either. How are they even my off spring? I often ask myself this question. So obviously my weird kids didn’t eat any of this creamy macaroni and cheese, but everyone […]

I just love love love this dinner. It is so simple, but tastes so fancy. Start to finish, this dinner can be done in just about 30 minutes if you don’t have a million distractions from the kids. Speaking of kids if they don’t like spinach or mushrooms, feel free to let them pick their […]

Sometimes red sauce is missing something. All to often people use plain ol’ ground beef as the source of protein for the Italian pasta dishes. When you use ground beef, you have to rely on adding several other spices and ingredients to get a good flavor. Well I totally have the cure for your boring […]
