How to Make Homemade Flour Tortillas

Flour tortillas are SO easy to make at home. I can’t believe I didn’t try it out sooner! We are Airbnb hosts, and one of our guests mentioned that she is not great in the kitchen, but does make her own flour tortillas for wraps, quesadillas, tacos, etc. I thought to myself, “Why have I […]

The Best Raspberry Frosting of All Time

You guys. You guys! This is seriously the best raspberry frosting of all time. It’s a butter cream of sorts, but you don’t use any powdered sugar. Seriously…NONE. You will not believe how completely perfect this frosting is, especially when paired with a chocolate cake. This frosting is so good, you can get away with […]

Orange Chocolate Chip Scones with Vanilla-Orange Glaze

So here’s the thing… I already have a favorite scone recipe. I’ve been open to other types of scones, and have even made these double chocolate banana scones in the past. They were delicious. But nothing can hold a candle to the scone recipe I got from my friend’s grandmother. These come close. I’ll be […]

Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Pretzel Buns #BreadBakers

You guys… I think this is seriously one of my favorite recipes of all time! The May theme for Bread Bakes is “Stuffed,” and when it was announced, I scoured Pinterest for ideas. Then, I remembered, I already had an awesome stuffed bread recipe pinned – Cheddar Bacon Stuffed Pretzel Buns from Yammies Noshery. It’s […]

Millionaire Shortbread Bars #secretrecipeclub

It’s Secret Recipe Club Reveal Day! Every month, our group “trades” blogs and makes one another’s recipes – and this month, our assignment was Searching for Spice. Corina has a huge index of recipes, but of course, we had to go for the desserts…and although we were tempted by other recipes, such as her Banana […]

Quilting Through the Generations

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! My daughters Allison and Jess and my nephew J.P. made lunch for our whole family today to celebrate. What is your family doing? We usually have a recipe to talk about and share, but today I’m going to talk about one of my other hobbies – […]

What’s for Dinner: May 2015 Meal Plan

I love the month of May, because it means we’ve completely made it through winter. Yay! We did it! February and March were certainly beasts and even April was a jerk this year. So May, you better not mess this up. We’re counting on you for some nice weather (finally)! This month’s meal plan includes […]

Honey BBQ Chicken Legs

I love a good deal at the grocery store. And last week, there was a great deal on chicken legs. But I was lacking a little inspiration. To Pinterest! There was one recipe that caught my eye – it was billed as “so good you’ll want to slap your grandmother.” I don’t know what my […]

4-Ingredient Homemade Dog Treats

Last week while browsing through Pinterest I came across a pin for homemade dog treats. Normally, I’d skip over a recipe like this since I don’t have a dog (I’m generally not a pet person). But one of my closest friends just added a new German Shepherd puppy to the family, in addition to the two […]

Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies for #SecretRecipeClub

This month’s Secret Recipe Baking Club assignment for us is The Harried Cook. I checked out the recipes from Marsha’ s blog this month, since Allison and Jessica had extra-busy months with work. Marsha has a lot of baking recipes, which are right up my alley. I would rather bake then cook. I love to […]
