Apple Crisp

I recently got to get together with the MOPS (Mother’s of Preschoolers) group from my church and we made apple crisp. It took a lot of proding to get me to join MOPS.  I’m quite shy when you first meet me and it takes awhile for me to warm up and really be comfortable with people.

2 Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins

Have you ever heard of Pinterest? If you haven’t, you need to check it out immediately. But it’s addicting so if you don’t have ample time (like me), maybe you shouldn’t. I find myself jumping on there every time Noah is asleep or playing with daddy. You can organize all your recipes (or any other

Roasted Teeny Tiny Taters

This is such an easy, go to recipe that I make often in our home when I have the “I can’t think of anything creative” side dish blues.  They are so simple and so tasty and go with just about anything. Normally, I just dice up a few potatoes but during a recent trip to

Butterscotch Pudding

  I planned on a savory recipe today but when I saw that it was National Butterscotch Pudding Day, I knew I had to indulge. This is one of the items on my Top 100 list and one that Joel requests often. I’ve never made homemade pudding and especially not butterscotch as I am not

Guacamole

Today is National Guacamole Day. I recently looked up food holidays and found that 2 foods on my Top 100 were “days” in September! Guacamole was one of them so I jumped at having a reason to whip some up. Guacamole is another one of those foods that I thought I didn’t like and I’m not even sure that I have

Baked Loaded Jalepeno Poppers

These.Are.Unbelievable. Seriously, I don’t like jalepeno’s and I can’t stop dreaming about them. Joel doesn’t like anything spicy and he devoured them. I came across this recipe a few months ago and made them for a family get together. They disappeared at an alarming rate and I only got to sample half of one. Since
