Apple Pear Scones

Every home chef has to have at least a couple of recipes up their sleeve that never fail to impress. We become known for these recipes, and when all else fails, we can whip up a batch and all else is forgiven, no matter how crispy and black dinner may be. For me, that “up […]

Pizza Pinwheels

This Pennsylvania winter has been so cold and snowy that I can hardly wait for spring. The ground hog saw his shadow on February 2nd and says 6 more weeks of winter. So far he has been right. I make a lot of meals in the oven just to help warm the kitchen. I had […]

Do you like the taste of gingersnaps, but don’t like how crunchy they are? Do you want something soft and chewy like a molasses cookie? Well here is the recipe for you. The Chewy Gingersnap Molasses Cookie recipe is the one for you. It is the best of both worlds. I pinned a version of […]

Make Potato Chips in Your Microwave!

Potato chips are my guilty pleasure. If I were stranded on a deserted island, I think that’s the snack food I’d miss the most. Yes, over chocolate. Just barely. I have two issues with potato chips, though. First, they’re really bad for you. Not only are they really fatty, but like all packaged foods, they […]

Reese’s Peanut Butter Heart Cookies

Do you need a sweet treat for Valentine’s Day for your sweetheart? Instead of the traditional heart boxes of chocolate candy, bake some cookies! Chocolate and peanut butter are one of my favorite combinations, so I just had to try these cookies, which are originally from i heart nap time¬†. I found the Reeses peanut […]

With the Super Bowl coming up in a few days there are lots of parties being planned. I pinned this recipe from Taste of Home. The Pizza Wonton cup appetizer recipe can be added to your ¬†list. Back in July I posted a Sausage Wonton Cup recipe that is very similar just using some different […]

Snickerdoodle Muffins That Make You Go Mmm…

Exciting news readers! I recently turned one of my biggest freelance clients into a full time position within the company! Now I have to wake up at a normal time every weekday (okay, that’s not so exciting), put on my big girl pants, and go off to work. But wait! Doesn’t this mean you don’t […]

Thoughts and prayers are definitely appreciated.* Any red velvet cookie always deserves a second look from me. Our whole family likes red velvet goodies. This Red Velvet Cookie recipe […]

Even if it’s just you vegging in front of the couch watching the game by yourself, this Spinach Artichoke Dip makes it a party! […]

Restaurant-Style Queso

I love a good copycat recipe. Whenever I go out to eat at a Mexican restaurant, I love ordering the queso. Does anyone out there not love a big bowl of gooey melted cheese? Okay, well our grandmother doesn’t love a big bowl of gooey melted cheese. She doesn’t like cheese at all. She’s weird. […]

Cold Crab Dip – Perfect for Parties

Sometimes, you need a quick recipe that holds up well as you travel to a party. When I find myself in that situation, my answer is often to bring a dip. Dips get better as the ingredients meld together, and they’re definitely crowd-pleasers. Oh, and did I mention how gosh darn easy they are? Love […]

Jack Daniels Sugared Pecans

My love affair with pecans is recent. Growing up, I hated nuts. Other than cashews, I never ate them, and I absolutely hated them in my baked goods. I still do, actually. Nuts do not belong in brownies. But I’ve grown up a bit and can admit that sugared pecans are downright delicious. My mother […]

Quick and Easy Mini Cinnamon Rolls

These mini cinnamon rolls are quick and easy to make for breakfast, for a snack or a quick dessert. You should get 2 tubes of crescent rolls right away. I would make a double batch right away because they will not last. This recipe is a version I pinned from Michael Wurm, Jr. who pinned […]

I think this is my new favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. They are chewy and delicious. And they freeze well, too. I pinned this recipe from Jackie Gaccione who pinned it from PinCookie.com. Just make sure you check the pantry for the chocolate chips, because at my house some people get these chocolate cravings and […]

Sausage Wonton Appetizers

These sausage appetizers are a great snack to make for any kind of party or occasion. You can easily find all the ingredients in the grocery store or change up the ingredients with whatever is in your refrigerator or pantry. I pinned a version of this recipe from Stephanie Slaughter, who pinned from The Taste […]

So-Easy-You-Want-to-Kiss-Someone Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins

I have a confession to make. The title of this post is a half-lie. These “muffins” are actually more like cupcakes without the frosting. But I’m going to call them muffins because 1) it makes them healthier and 2) it means I can eat them for breakfast. Also, the original pinner called them muffins so […]
