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


Strawberry Orange Syrup

This week I found a killer deal on strawberries. They were 75 cents per pound. Beat that!! I bought 8 pounds of strawberries! I ate and ate and ate strawberries, I still had an overwhelming amount. Why I bought 8 pounds, I’ll never know, but I had to do something with them now that I… 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

My mom made this little gem often growing up and it is so easy to make. It’s a throw it together type dish and served cold which I love for a spring and summer dessert. This recipe calls for a graham cracker crust and making a graham cracker crust is one of my least favorite… Read More


Easter is hands down one of my favorite Holidays. There’s a big meal, and you get to relax with family with out the pressure of buying presents. I’ve been looking for some new dishes to add to my Easter meal this year and came across a recipe a friend from college handed down to me.… Read More


This recipe is a WINNER. Chocolate is wonderful. So is peanut butter. But together? That is my favorite. These are easy, and it’s easy to pretend like they are healthy because they call for 2 cups of oats (ignore the cup of margarine….and the 2 cups of sugars…….). I got this recipe from a cookbook… Read More


This weekend was bright and beautiful and it put me in the mood for something fresh tasting. I have never really liked salad but this recipe at Kraft caught my attention. I loved it and it was so refreshing. We’ll definitely be having this again. It was a great side dish to the pulled pork… Read More
