We are going to be moving from the GREAT STATE of Texas in less than two weeks *sniff, sniff* – so, in honor of our past 8+ years here, I wanted to post a favorite: Texas Sheet Cake. If you have never experienced this beauty, you are in for a treat! It is a thinner… Read More


This recipe is perfect to teach kids who are heading off to college, or for a quick and easy dinner. Actually, I had a roommate who made this (or something similar) to share with me in college. It is all “pantry foods”, but still has a fresh taste to it. Two disclaimers: 1) This is… Read More


Summertime is AWESOME! It means that it is time for lots of fresh fruits and veggies – hooray! One of our summer favorites is my husband’s homemade pico de gallo. He lived in Mexico for two years as a missionary for our church, and loves good Mexican food. This recipe is SO good. It is… Read More


I found this recipe for Cookie Dough Brownies a year ago and have made a few times since then, and it is delicious. The first time we made them (they are RICH!, by the way) I decided that a lot of them needed to find another good home so they didn’t land straight in my… Read More


This one is a fun recipe to do with kiddos over the summer – or whenever! It’s easy to make, fun to play with – and you can EAT it. It’s always nice when you can play with your food. This one is super quick and easy for kids to help make too. Peanut Butter… Read More


This recipe comes from my mother-in-law, and is a family favorite. It is TOTALLY from scratch, which is kind of fun, and tastes amazing – not like the boxed artificial banana flavor. To get an awesome, fool-proof crust, use Kate’s recipe. This one was a lame refrigerated pre-made crust, which crust did not turn out… Read More


I wanted to do a quick post today about a SUPER easy way to shred chicken…..or any other meat for that matter. I used to avoid recipes that called for shredded anything because I really can’t stand shredding meat. It is painful to me. Or I would have my husband do it. I found this… Read More


Today while we were at the store, my kids were begging to get frozen corn dogs. Corn dogs are good, but sometimes the ones from the store don’t look so great, and they are ridiculously expensive for what they are (battered cheap hot dogs), so I talked them into letting us make our own corn… Read More


A friend of mine and I were throwing a baby shower for another friend, and I thought it would be fun to make chicken salad sandwiches, but couldn’t findĀ  a recipe that I loved, so I made one of my own. I wanted it to have the right amount of crunch and sweet, but not… Read More


We had a friend who very kindly gave our family some chocolate-covered strawberries a couple of weeks ago – and they were SO good. So we decided to make some of our own to enjoy and to give to some friends. The strawberries we found were GIANT, and perfect for dipping. We ended up dipping… Read More
