Banana Blueberry Muffins

I’m always looking healthier versions of the foods we love. Muffins are definitely one of our favorite breakfast treats but they aren’t exactly the best way to start your morning. When I noticed our browning bananas and excess of blueberries I went on the hunt for some kind of bread or muffin to use them

Cake Batter Rice Crispy Treats

When I saw this recipe over at one of my favorite blogs, Gimme Some Oven, I knew they were something I needed to try. I’ve been seeing all kinds of ways to fancy up the humble rice crispy treat in the food blog world lately and the perfect opportunity arose for me to join in. Some friends

Shredded French Dips

There was a chorus of “mmmm’s” as we ate this for dinner.  Once again, it’s another simple and quick go to recipe that is great for weeknight dinners. The small number of ingredients is also a huge plus to this recipe. I don’t normally like anything soggy (cereal especially) but this sandwich is one of

Peanut Butter M&M Cookies {12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies}

It’s week 4 of the 12 Weeks of Christmas and today I am bringing you my all time favorite flavor combination: peanut butter and chocolate. Is there anything better?

Halloween Peppermint Patties

Butterscotch or Peanut Butter Cornflake Cookies {12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies}

Around Christmastime a huge controversy rages in our house. It’s intense and we just can’t agree. We plead our cases but we just can’t relate. What is all this drama about? It’s all over butterscotch. Joel is a huge fan of it but me, not so much. When I really thought about it I realized

Candy Corn Sugar Cookies

Baking is a total stress reliever for me. Gathering all the ingredients immediately relaxes my shoulders and lets me breathe a little deeper. Cracking the eggs and pulverizing them in the disposal helps too. Sometimes if you came to my house and saw my island stacked with baked goods you might become worried. But I’m
