Mason Jar Mini Key Lime Pies

Mason jar key lime pie pinterest remake

  When a group of my blogging friends and I decided to do a monthly Pinterest Remake challenge, I knew that I would have a blast. What I didn’t realize was that spending hours on Pinterest (and, no, I’m probably not exaggerating) would lead me to find way too many projects that I wanted to […]

Smoked Sausage with Spinach, Orzo and White Beans

Smoked Sausage with spinach orzo and white beans

  I love getting creative in the kitchen and throwing some ingredients together than sound like they’d go well together.

  When it snows, I bake. And it’s been snowing a lot lately. The weather forecast is calling for warmer temperatures starting tomorrow (hallelujah!) so hopefully winter is finally coming to a close here soon and the kids can get back to school.

Tex-Mex Vegetable Soup

  I love a good challenge, especially when food is involved. This month, I was challenged to come up with a recipe or fun way to use Libby’s NEW Vegetable Cups, and I have to admit….I surprised even myself. My whole family couldn’t get enough of the Tex-Mex Vegetable Soup that I made! Although this […]

Light Applesauce Blueberry Muffins

  Despite the fact that I’m eating much better lately, I still do have a sweet tooth and a strange desire to bake. Call it kitchen therapy. The act of stirring ingredients, experimenting with different flavors, and smelling my homemade treats heating up in the oven relaxes me and makes me happy unlike anything else. […]
