Chocolate Minty Goodness

Don’t you just adore Chocolate and mint together? The two paired together always remind me of Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies(which I could eat the whole box in one sitting..preferably frozen!) So if you are PMS’ing or you are just in the mood for some soft chocolate cookies with a mint twist these are just […]

Need a smile? No baking required!

There was no scooping, measuring, pouring(except for the syrup) or preheating required to get a smile for a 2 1/2 year old. Some of my cooking isn’t approved by my kids, so I went the simple route on this one. I really did buy this Fat Free frozen yogurt for my children. So I had […]

Trisha Yearwoods..Chicken Pie

This dish wasn’t really what I expected it to be. Yes it did have a rich and creamy comfort food taste, but it was more like a soupy chicken pot pie minus the veggies. The biscuit topping was delightful and had a tiny bit of tang from the buttermilk. Don’t get me wrong it was […]
