Whole Wheat Cinnamon Streusel Muffins

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Streusel Muffins at

We love these whole wheat Cinnamon Streusel Muffins! That crumbly topping is so delicious! It makes me feel a little bit better eating so many since they are whole wheat. That makes them healthy, right? All my kids loved them too! They ate them all…down to the very last crumb! We even doubled the recipe […]

Swedish Nougats

Swedish Nougats at

These Swedish Nougats are my grandma’s recipe. She used to make these fabulous cookies at Christmas time, and I love them! If any of my cousins or siblings are reading this, they probably remember these cookies a little bit differently. My grandma used to roll them in chopped walnuts, but since we were taking these […]

Balsamic Pork Tenderloin

This Balsamic Pork Tenderloin is so good! It is one of those dinners that look and taste so fancy that it seems like it took forever to make, but it really is simple and easy! It’s a great dinner if you want to impress your guests! But you don’t have to have guests around to […]

Oatmeal Muffins

Oatmeal Muffins at

These oatmeal muffins are my favorite! I love to make these healthy muffins for my family and they are so easy to make, I can even make them on a busy weekday morning. My favorite though is having leftovers from the day before for breakfast, so I don’t have to make anything on a busy […]

Snickerdoodle Blondies

Snickerdoodle Blondies at

So, I am not much of a cookie baker. I certainly make cookies on occasion, although I don’t always like taking the time to make little individual cookies. But when cookies come in bar form…those are my favorite! These Snickerdoodle Blondies are so tasty and they are so fast to make! We made them for […]

Oven Baked Fries

Oven Baked Fries at

We absolutely love these oven baked fries! They are delicious and we try to eat them with as many meals as possible! We love them with the Chicken Salad Panini. We just had this particular dinner tonight and everyone asked if we could make a double batch, so everyone could stuff themselves with oven baked […]

Spaghetti Sauce Seasoning Mix

Spaghetti Sauce Seasoning Mix at

When we first got married and we wanted to have spaghetti, I just bought the bottled spaghetti sauce from the store and it was pretty good. And then I upgraded a little and started buying the seasoning packets to make our spaghetti sauce. I thought we were doing pretty well, until I tried this spaghetti […]

Chicken Salad Panini

Chicken Salad Panini at

I know that I say this about many of the meals that I have posted on our blog, but the Chicken Salad Panini is one of our all time favorite meals! I guess we just love to eat so all our meals are our favorite! We have been eating this meal for many years and […]

Apple Nutella Swirl Muffins

Apple Nutella Swirl Muffins by

We make a lot of muffins at our house, so the other day we decided we wanted to change up our usual recipes a little bit. We love dipping apples in Nutella, so we thought we would add those to our favorite muffin recipe and they sure turned out tasty! We loved the Apple Nutella […]

April Showers Marshmallow Pops

April Showers Marshmallow Pops at

We love marshmallow pops and have made them on a few occasions. We have made them for the Fourth of July and Valentine’s Day. They can be made to fit with any holiday or occasion and they are super easy to make. What could be better than that? We had some leftover candy melts from […]

Homemade Taco Seasoning

Tacos are one of my very favorite weeknight dinners! This homemade taco seasoning mix makes taco night even better! Honestly, I try to make tacos at least twice a month. Good thing all the other members of the family like tacos too! Growing up, my family didn’t ever use taco seasoning when we had tacos, […]


Brookies by

Our family is absolutely in love with these Brookies! We had never tried them before and, boy, have we been missing out! My son even loved them so much that they became his birthday treat of choice, and he wanted to take them to school to give to his classmates to help celebrate his big […]

Chicken Enchilada Rice Bowl

Chicken enchilada rice bowl

I found this Chicken Enchilada Stuffed Peppers recipe through Pinterest on one of my favorite craft blogs, Sugar Bee Crafts, and we decided to try it out. It was really good, but my husband thought the chicken mixture would taste even better just on rice instead of stuffed in the peppers. So we tried that […]

Brown Sugar Cinnamon Muffins

cinnamon muffins

A couple of years ago, when I started making homemade breakfast more often, we mixed and matched numerous recipes to form this one. And it is the one that everyone loves! I probably say that a lot, but brown sugar cinnamon muffins really are the breakfast that everyone would eat everyday if we could! They […]

Our Favorite Pancake Recipe

This is definitely our go-to pancake recipe! We love it, it’s easy and fast to make, and you can add to it and change it anyway you want! I absolutely love the happy smiles I get whenever I tell the kids we are having pancakes for breakfast. I guess we have them just often enough […]

Leprechaun Chex Mix

St Patrick's Day dessert

Leprechaun Chex Mix is the perfect St. Patrick’s Day dessert! We made it for family home evening and it was a big hit! Especially with the littlest boys (they ate only the marshmallows)! I love how colorful it is. It makes me dream of spring time! When is spring coming, by the way? All the […]

Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

These oatmeal breakfast bars are my favorite breakfast! I love breakfast food, so I might say that a lot, but I really do LOVE these! 🙂 They are pretty fast and can easily be whipped up on those hectic weekday mornings. They are also great to pack in lunches for the kids to take to […]
