Duck Dynasty Party! My 10 Favorite Food Quotes from the Robertson Clan

Anyone else excited for the Duck Dynasty season premier tonight? Or is it just me? I love the Robertson clan, complete with family matriarch Miss Kay. In almost every episode, you see Miss Kay cooking up something good in the kitchen. Sometimes even the guys get involved, like during the episode when they competed with […]

Patchwork Paper Greeting Cards

I’ve always been found of making greeting cards. I don’t send them nearly often enough, but I do prefer making them over sending store-bought cards. So, I’m always on the look out for cool card ideas on Pinterest. I’ve seen quite a few “cut out patchwork” cards (examples here and here), so I decided to […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

I always like to try new recipes, which is one of the reasons I like Pinterest so much. It’s an endless source of new recipes to test out. Today’s cookies were inspired by a recipe I pinned was for chocolate raspberry cookies from Paula Dean. I wanted to try them, but I didn’t have the […]

Pulled Pork Enchiladas

I love, love, love anything with pork in it. Pork roast is probably my favorite meal, and whenever I see pulled pork on the menu, I have a hard time ordering anything else. So, when I saw this pin for pulled pork enchiladas, I had to try it out. While my pictures didn’t turn out […]

Pinter-Mess: Apple Cider Caramels

I love apple cider. I love caramels. So why not try a recipe that combines the two? I had really high hopes for these apple cider caramels. I attempted making them a few days before my Christmas party last year, to serve to my guests. Let’s just say it’s a good thing I made so […]

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 […]

Krispy Buckeye Candy

Being from Central Pennsylvania, we’re lifelong Penn State fans in the Boyer household. So, I’m not really a fan of anything called a “buckeye” (for those of you not into college sports, Ohio State’s mascot is the buckeye, and they’re a team in the same conference as Penn State). Fat kid confessional: My dislike for […]

Party Time! Pizza Wonton Cups

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 […]

Top Ten Tips for Hosting a Dinner Party without Crying

There’s no crying in baseball. Or dinner party hosting. Recently, I hosted a party for 12 of my closest friends. That’s 13 – yes, thirteen – people total. And this wasn’t just a party where I put out some food buffet-style. This was a sit down dinner. It was exhausting and amazing. I was stressed […]

Crispy Green Bean Fries

As I’ve noted in past posts, I’m not the biggest fan of veggies. This problem is most pronounced when I’m cooking dinner for other people. This past December, I planned a dinner party for 13 people, so I neededsomekind of vegetable dish. What to do, what to do… Make them as unhealthy as possible, of […]

Pennsylvania Dutch Chicken Pot Pie

If you think pot pie is a baked vegetable and meat dish topped with a pie-like crust, you’re wrong. Sorry. Hehe, just kidding. Where I grew up, though, pot pie was something very different. It’s not a baked savory pie, it’s actually a very thick stew-like meal with huge noodles, potatoes, meat, and veggies. It’s […]

Chocolate-Dipped Hazelnut Shortbread

Every year, I use the holidays as an opportunity to test out new cookie recipes – and this year was no exception. My annual Christmas party featured several new recipes, most from Pinterest of course. I didn’t hear any of my friends complaining! One of the Pinterest recipes I tested out was this one for […]

Homemade Peanut Butter Club Sandwiches

Earlier this week, I posted a peanut butter doggie treat recipe, so I thought it only fair that I also post a human peanut butter treat as well! This recipe is for homemade club sandwiches. No, not the kind made with meat and cheese! These are the candy club sandwiches, like the ones you can […]

Puppy-Approved Peanut Butter Doggie Treats

This year, I wanted to make some doggie treats to give out with Christmas cookies, since a lot of my friends have puppies. We’re all kind of at that age where some people are starting to have babies, but most are getting dogs instead! So, of course I turned to Pinterest! I found this pin […]

Button Christmas Balls

When I saw these Button Christmas Balls on Pinterest (originally from Just Me & Him…and her and him), I knew I had to make ’em. I mean, they’re so cute! And even though they are Christmas ball ornaments, you could use lots of different colors so they’d be perfect for any season. Imagine them in […]

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 […]
