Toad in a Hole


My daughter couldn’t wait for me to share this with you. This is her favorite lunch to make right now. I think because it is so simple and she can easily make it herself. She does NOT like the smell of meat cooking or cold sandwiches so to her this is a great compromise. She…

Pumpkin Waffles


Last night we had over 200 trick or treaters! That is unusual for us. We usually have about 100-150. It was extra cold this year 38 degrees and overcast so I thought maybe we would get 100. I bought some candy to give away and some of our favorites to have leftovers. We ended up…

Can you believe it is already the last weekend in October? I swear the time continuum is getting faster and faster. Only two more months to 2018! Eek! This month fall recipes were at the top of my most popular posts. Pumpkin Muffins (click for link to recipe) These muffins hit the perfect notes for a…

Pumpkin Roll Pancakes with Sweet Cream Cheese Filling


Is it dessert? Is it dinner? Why yes it is! Have you seen the pumpkin rolls with the cream cheese filling? This is a take-off on that idea. No, it is NOT the same recipe so the pancakes are a bit more pumpkin bread like so it is not as sweet but the filling is…

Crustless Quiche Lorraine or as My Family Says “Egg Pie”


My family likes quiche but when the kids were little they would not eat quiche. That was too weird sounding to them. They would eat egg pie but not quiche. So my family still calls quiche, egg pie. The least favorite part of the quiche for my family has always been the crust. They are…

Country Sausage and Biscuits


First, I want to thank all of you that took the time to say you were thinking or praying for my family. My mother came home from the hospital and is now getting stronger. Her heart rate seems to be under control, she could not feel it racing up to 160 beats per minute so…

Pumpkin Muffins


While I am taking care of my family I have a few recipes in reserve that are family favorites. I hope you enjoy. You may already know I am NOT a fan of the pumpkin spice overload. I think it is way overdone and I especially don’t like the artificial pumpkin taste and smell in…

Chick-fil-A Like Breakfast Bowls


I am on the Chick-fil-A Moms Panel once again this year. I have been a member for the past four years. What this means is that if Chick-fil-A wants a moms opinions on kids meals, dishes, new ideas, etc. they come to us with surveys and samples. We also are there to help promote community…

Breakfast Sliders


My family loves breakfast for dinner every once in a while. I like breakfasts for dinner because they tend to be super easy and everyone loves it! These sliders are a take off on several other sliders I have made including Meatball sliders, Reuben sliders (one of my most popular recipes to date), and of…

New York Style Coffee Cake with LOTS of Crumb Topping


My daughter had her annual back-to-school sleepover the other night. This will most likely be the last one as they are all going into their senior year. I am holding out hope for one last one next year before they all go away to college but they just don’t know. The nice thing is that…

Buttermilk Pancakes – IHOP Copycat


When we get towards the end of the month and pay-day I am trying to stretch out all the things we have in the pantry and cupboards for just a few more days. That is why I always buy an extra bag or two of sugar and flour during the month so that I can…

Maple Glazed Tea Donuts


I am not a fan of breakfast. I like breakfast foods for dinner but I am not a breakfast eater. A cup of coffee and maybe a piece of toast, once in a while, and I am happy. But, occasionally on the weekends we make something special for breakfast. These Maple Tea Donuts are fairly…
