Mexican Hot Chocolate Muddy Buddies


Are you celebrating Cinco de Mayo today? My daughter made this for us to snack on during the day. She loves making and coming up with all sorts of combinations for Muddy Buddies. This is a great recipe to make with kids. They can stir and pour!

Spring Sugar Cookie Bars


Being with my family I am not cooking much at all this week but here are some cookies we made. This is the recipe that I used for the St. Patrick’s Day cookies (click for link to original recipe) only with Spring colors. I love the addition of the sprinkles into the batter to add…

Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies


I admit it. I am not a big desserts fan. Oh, I love a good piece of chocolate cake or dark chocolate candy from time to time but overall I’d rather have a bowl of mashed potatoes or an extra piece of meatloaf than dessert. But, the rest of my family loves dessert. I don’t…

St. Patrick’s Day Bar Cookies


My children are slightly older (13 and 16 years-old) but they still love to celebrate all the holidays. No holiday can go by without decorations, special food, or talk about our past celebrations. I love these cookies. They are so very easy to make and are so fun. You can change them with the holidays by…

Oreo Brownies


If you have been a follower of my blog for a while you know I mostly post recipes for entrees, sides and a few breads and very few sweets. I had my daughter make this recipe the other night and we were all surprised at how good it was. Verdict: Brownies with stuff in them…

Breadmaker Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing


For those of you dieting in the New Year my apologies but these were too good not to share! I dusted off the breadmaker the other day to make these Cinnamon Rolls. Yes, I said dusted off. My breadmaker used to be the second most used small appliance in my kitchen after my slow cooker…

Banana Pudding Chessman Dessert


Well, the Labor Day weekend is upon us. For some it is a three-day weekend for others, just another day at work. I hope whatever you do this weekend you find some time to have fun with your families, friends or enjoy some alone time. I have seen this dessert on Facebook, Pinterest and even…

Blueberry Angel Food Cake


Dessert for dinner. Yes, this is really what we ate for dinner. Our house air conditioner stopped working sometime yesterday and when we arrived home it was almost 80 degrees in the house. We turned the air down, checked the filters, turned it off and on and nothing. Ugh. So, it was too late to…

Chocolaty Eclair Cake


I made an Chocolate Eclair Cake (click for link to original recipe) a year and a half ago and the kids still mention it from time to time about how I need to make another one. I finally decided that I really wanted something chocolaty so I decided to try this cake again but using chocolate…

Chocolate Strawberry Trifle


This is a great dessert that is so easy and light for Spring and Summer. The sunsets lately have been so beautiful. You can feel the weather changing so quickly.  I know we are looking forward to fresh fruits and vegetables.  The great thing about this is you can use whatever berries that are in…

Cookies and Cream Muddy Buddies


If you haven’t visited my blog in a while you should! I am coming up on my 4 year anniversary of writing this blog (though I really don’t count the first year and a half).  I decided it was time to shake things up a bit with a new design, larger font and hopefully easier…
