Lately, I have been on the look out for healthy meals for my family that are DIFFERENT from some combination of chicken and vegetables. We’ve done chicken salads, chicken roll ups, chicken casseroles, but at the end of the day, its still chicken and vegetables. Not that there is anything wrong with that, it just… Read More

Lemon Cupcake

Here it is, the end all, be all of lemon cupcakes. A family in my neck of the woods is adopting an 11-year-old girl from China. International adoptions are out of this world expensive so her friends put together a benefit fundraiser/bake sale for the family, unbeknownst to them. I brought cupcakes and I wanted… Read More

A couple of weeks ago, my friend’s little 18 month old daughter was very sick in the hospital. The baby was heavily medicated and had a tube down her throat to help her breath. My friend was not moving an inch away from her baby and I don’t blame her. So she was stuck at… Read More

I had a birthday last week. Ugh. Twenty seven. Twenty six still sounds young and fresh, but 27 sounds so grown up and serious. I didn’t even make a birthday cake because I just couldn’t handle it. Eventually I needed some kind of treat so I make cake-cookies. I ate five in one sitting. On… Read More

Cilantro Lime Rice

Here is the Cilantro Lime Rice I promised you. I served this up with the Sweet Pork Barbacoa and it was a great compliment. There are so many directions you can take this combination.

Samoa Sheet Cake

Right from the get go, I knew this was going to be a good cake. I could hear a choir quietly humming a hallelujah chorus while I made the cake batter. You had to listen carefully, but it was there. The batter just came together beautifully and the bowl was literally licked clean. If I… Read More

Sweet Potato Casserole

Thanksgiving is a WONDERFUL time of traditions and food, but sometimes food is eaten just for the sake of tradition and isn’t necessarily super delicious. For example, my husband’s family eats sauerkraut and hot dogs as part of Thanksgiving dinner. Seriously – I kid you not! Do you know what kind of smells sauerkraut gives off combined… Read More

I love this recipe in so many ways. The most important reason is the taste. The amount of pumpkin is just right. The cream cheese layer complimented the the bread and pumpkin very well and added a nice range of flavor. The second reason I love this recipe is the texture. I was afraid the… Read More

Fantasy Fudge

  This is our family’s go-to fudge recipe and it doesn’t disappoint. I have made it so many times, and so many people comment on how much they love it, and then they usually follow it up with, “my fudge never turns out.”. Then I give them this recipe, which pretty much always turns out.… Read More
