I really love biscuits, but I really don’t love making them. They’re best fresh and I’m still working on my prep-work-ethic when it comes to dinner time. But these, with the help of self rising flour, are SO-oh-ho easy! And yummy Not the best I’ve ever had, but for the amount of work they [...]

Lots of people say that when the warm weather comes it makes them want to eat better, fresher, lighter foods.
I have never experienced this phenomenon. Keep the cookies and cake coming please!
But I really, really love fresh salsa. Especially when I don’t have to make it! When Craig and I worked together, everyone would go [...]

So many recipes! So many! Too many! Can… not… choose…. (dead noise….)
Ok, so that’s a tad dramatic. We have tried many new recipes in my kitchen lately! We have made lovely enchiladas with homemade sauces, salsa, apple cakes and vanilla cupcakes… oooh dear.

But you know what?  I absolutely hate Olive Garden commercials. The [...]

I’ve found that Wednesday nights are very good nights to do something different. You know to help you bust through the midweek. So tonight I decided not to do the dishes :o))
Ok, well, actually I decided not to do the dishes because I tried a new recipe for dinner (and made the girls something separate) [...]

July 4th, Independence Day, 2009
God bless America, so say we all.
Uh, sorry… the last 4 words was the geek inside of me. (10 cool points if you can name the source!) Today was a pretty quiet Independence Day, not that we are ever BBQ party maniacs. Did you know that Discovery Channel has a crazy [...]

When I was 2 years old my Mom lived off of coffee cake. The recipe was good and simple, made with basic ingredients found in any kitchen. And by the grace of God she never gained a pound off of it!
This recipe has all the homemade, just like Momma makes it goodness of your favorite [...]

Tonight was power baking night! Waffles for the freezer, cinnamon muffins with cherries and ooooh… dessert, dessert…. what to make for dessert?
For some reason I never really realized that a blondie recipe wasn’t the same as a cookie recipe. I sort of just assumed that a blondie was a chocolate chip cookie baked in a [...]
