Triple Chocolate Cupcakes

Triple chocolate cupcakes recipe with American Heritage Chocolate

I don’t need much of an arm-twist to bake, especially when chocolate is involved, but this week I was challenged to come up with a recipe using some American Heritage chocolates, which are based on early American chocolate recipes from the 1700s, and a bag of classic M&Ms. I gladly accepted that challenge. This post […]

How to Make Homemade Gingerbread Houses & Frosting Cement

How to make your own Gingerbread houses and frosting cement

  It’s hard to believe that it’s THAT time of year again. Just this past weekend, I walked in to Target and heard Christmas music playing. Although I’m not quite ready to decorate the Christmas tree yet, it’s never too early to start sharing holiday recipes, right? I rediscovered this recipe last week and knew […]

Creamy Homemade Macaroni and Cheese with Bacon

This recipe for creamy macaroni and cheese with bacon is brought to you by MIRACLE WHIP but all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

An apple a day - apple recipes

  Apples were always my favorite fruit (at least for as long as I can remember), so you can imagine my sorrow when I became allergic to fresh apples after I had kids. Since I can’t eat a cold, crisp apple straight from the fridge, I try to find as many ways as I can […]

Get in the Halloween Spirit with Paranormal Pudding, Monster Mash Float, + More

Paranormal Pudding recipe with TruMoo Orange Scream Milk

  Is it just me, or has Halloween crept up on us this year? Usually, the kids have all of their Halloween costumes picked out long before the middle of the month, I’ve already baked several pumpkin treats by now, and our front porch is decorated with several hand-carved or painted jack-o-lanterns. Apparently, I’m a […]

The Everything Gluten-Free Breakfast And Brunch Cookbook

  It’s not every day that I get to brag to my friends that some of my recipes have been included in a cookbook. I figured that an awesome day like this was worth bragging about…at least a little. Note: in appreciation for contributing to The Everything Gluten-Free Breakfast And Brunch Cookbook, author (and friend) […]

Southwest Turkey Burgers

This post brought to you by Butterball Every Day. All opinions are 100% mine. As my kids have gotten older, I’ve noticed something – I seem to have less time than I’ve ever had to get dinner on the table. Between homework, after school activities, sports, and my own work that always carries over into […]
