Birthday Favorites

For weeks Darby has been asking me what I want for my birthday.  I have to tell you something…I LOVE everything about giving gifts.  Figuring out what someone wants, going shopping, wrapping it up and then watching someone special open it up, is awesome!  I however, am not a great gift receiver.  I feel guilty […] Read more…

Cosmic Brownie Cookie

It is my birthday week and although part of me hates to admit it…one of my favorite {store bought} snacks is a Cosmic Brownie.  I love the soft fudgy brownie with chocolate frosting and topped with colored miniature chips.  They are delicious in the most sinful way!  When I thought about what I wanted for […] Read more…

Homemade Mac & Cheese

For years I have searched for just the right Homemade Mac & Cheese.  I have always struggled with the cheese sauce!  It would taste good but have a weird texture.  Finally, after thousands {ok, maybe hundreds} of tries…I have came up with what I think is a winner.  There are a couple of things that […] Read more…

Crock Pot Meatloaf

I love using my crock pot.  The “set it and forget it” flexibility that it allows is such a life saver.  Another wonderful quality, in my opinion, is that it keeps things from drying out.  Meatloaf can sometimes get a bad rap because it can be dry.  No need to worry about that when you […] Read more…

Pancake Donuts with Maple Glaze

Today I have a really fun mash up recipe for you.  Pancakes meet donuts!!  I mean really though…what could possibly be bad about that combination?  Nothing!  Add a really fabulous maple glaze and you may never want to eat a regular pancake again.  Unless of course you have ever had the privilege of eating one […] Read more…

Have you decided what you are making for Valentine’s day yet?  If you haven’t then look no further.  These White Chocolate Pretzel Hearts are not only simple but super tasty!  I am a sucker for the combination of sweet and salty, so these cute little babies are already a favorite.  Plus, heart shaped food makes […] Read more…

Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies

Have you ever tried Mexican Hot Chocolate before?  There are a lot of different versions but basically it is a spiced cocoa.  Some recipes have the ever so slight but warming taste of cinnamon but there are others that use chilies for an extra kick.  At our house there is a great divide between people […] Read more…

30 Minute Chili

We are days away from the Super Bowl and I have to admit that although I am sad that my Darb’s Eagles didn’t make it this year.  I am also a little excited to not have the pressure that last years game brought with it.  No matter who you are the Super Bowl has something […] Read more…

Snickers No-Bake Cheesecake

This week we are celebrating one of my favorites birthdays!  I love other peoples birthdays so much more than my own because I love to make friends and family dessert.  I have always let my kids decide what they want me to make them on their special day.  In fact, today one of our kids […] Read more…
