Apple Pie

Apple Pie {in mass quantities}

It’s no secret that I have a thing for apple pie. We have an entire family tradition built around apple pie. It’s always been kind of an ode to Grandma “B”, who always signed her name with quotations around the B. I know I talk about her a lot on here, she was a rather…

Chocolate Truffle Pie

Chocolate Truffle Pie {Easiest Pie Ever}

Uh….so if you didn’t notice, I didn’t get you a pie recipe last week. Last week might in fact go down as one of our worst weeks ever, for a handful of reasons. Isaac’s second degree burns from my flat iron probably tops the list but there were a host of other dynamics at work…

What can I say? I’ve been caught. Cheating on my favorite chili recipe. We had a good time, my old chili recipe and I. And I may go back every now and again, for old time’s sake. To relive the times when I made chili with a jar of salsa and cream of mushroom soup….

Cookie Fudge

Circus Animal Cookie Fudge

I was so going to blog last week, and then I contracted the plague. Ok, I have a cold. But I feel as if someone beat me in my sleep with a baseball bat. I whispered to my kids all morning because the more I talk, the more I cough. They thought it was a…

Royal Icing & a Tutorial

I may have found a new obsession. I was asked to make monkey sugar cookies for a 1 year old’s birthday party and I knew the best way to make awesome character cookies was to use royal icing, something I’ve never done before. Annie’s Eats had some great tips and tricks and a recipe so…

Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

I used to think homemade spaghetti sauce meant buying a jar of Prego and adding some browned ground beef to it. We don’t even eat spaghetti all that often but I recently had dinner with our small group and someone brought a homemade meat sauce, or spaghetti sauce. However you call it. Anyway, it rocked…

Rock Salt Roasted Chicken

If you follow me on Facebook, which you should because I post a lot of extra stuff on there, you know that I ruined dinner Monday night. And a really easy one at that. Let’s just suffice it to say that if you run of out parchment paper and cannot get your pizza off the…

A birthday, a cake, & some pulled pork…

Isaac turned one. So…that happened. I’m still in denial, I try to rock him to sleep sometimes and he just looks at me like I’m nuts. Like “seriously mom, I got this”. He weighed in a 28 lbs. Yowza. Anna is four and she weighs 35 lbs. It’s officially really expensive to feed him. It…
