Pomegranate Champagne


Happy New Year!  Tomorrow we will bring in the new year with a 4-week old baby and a lot to be thankful for.  Tonight, we will celebrate the end of the year with this Pomegranate Champagne and some other snacks.  This particular drink adds a bit of festivity to your party from the gorgeous ruby […]

Pumpkin Yeast Bread


Pumpkin Yeast Bread was something I had on my list of recipes to try for a long time. My main motivation was to turn it into pumpkin bread french toast, which is one of my favorite dishes at a local breakfast cafe.  I originally had a different source/recipe bookmarked, but then saw this one on […]

Banana Cake


Since family was in town to visit our little Judah, we were able to celebrate my dad’s birthday together last Saturday.  Because of Judah’s arrival, I was not able to get out and buy a gift, so instead I made him his favorite cake with a twist and bought him some eggnog from our local […]

Christmas Basket Ideas


Yes, I’m still on a blogging hiatus as I continue to spend time with my new little guy.  (He’s getting cuter every day and I didn’t think it was possible!)  But, I wanted to remind you as you are probably using this weekend and the next to make your holiday baskets, to make sure you […]

The Best I’ve Ever Baked


I’ll be “gone” from blogging for a little while as I adjust to my new life as a mother.    Judah arrived about 2 weeks early on December 3rd and he is the most precious baby I’ve ever seen.  I can’t wait to spend time with my new little buddy in the kitchen and just […]

Pie in a Jar


For Thanksgiving, I made these mini pies in a jar as placeholders that doubly served as favors for my guests to take home. I got the idea from another food blog that I love, Our Best Bites. Although I didn’t have time to order the exact same jars they used, I was able to call […]

Baby Pound Cakes


It’s always nice to have a good grocery store nearby in case you need to run out and get something quick.  For me, that store is called Dominick’s, which is a local Safeway store.  There is actually another competitor grocery store directly across the street from Dominick’s, but I typically always choose Dominick’s over that […]

Honey Yeast Rolls


These Honey Yeast Rolls are all the rage among food bloggers lately.  Have you tried them yet? With such great reviews, I knew I had to bookmark these from Amber’s Delectable Delights.  Although it took me a while to finally make them again from the first time back in February (I’ll blame the pregnancy), I’ll […]

Happy Thanksgiving!


No time to post a new recipe today, but I am making some rolls for dinner that I think you’ll enjoy!  I’ll post the recipe later this weekend.  For now, let me remind you of these adorable Posh Piggies that I’ll be serving as an appetizer to our Thanksgiving guests.  Through the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program, […]

Foodbuzz Tastemaker: Nature’s Pride


Once in a while I receive free samples as a Foodbuzz Tastemaker.  Since I’ve been pregnant, I’ve had a few products come through my home that I’ve cooked with and haven’t had a chance to post about yet.  With only 3 weeks to go until Baby G is due, I figured I should get cracking […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Torte


If you are searching for the perfect Thanksgiving dessert that will WOW your guests, then look no further.  This combination of a peanut butter mousse filling and Oreo crust will leave your guests begging for more.  Your dessert will be the talk of the holiday! I did leave the espresso powder out when I made […]

Apricot and French Dressing Crock Pot Chicken


I don’t know the official name for this.  My friend gave me the recipe after she served it to us in her home, but it came with no name.  So, I took the liberty to name it Apricot and French Dressing Crock Pot Chicken.  After reviewing the recipe, let me know what you think of […]

Mini Apple Pies


The other night when BG was on a trip, I noticed I had three Honeycrisp apples left in my fridge calling out my name.  Since I had plans that night to go to our weekly Bible study, I decided to make something tasty to bring with me and share with the group!  I wanted to […]

Carrot Cake


UPDATE 10/30/10:  If you are looking for the Carrot Cake Cheesecake, please click here. BG’s birthday was last week, and carrot cake is his favorite.  I had never made a carrot cake, not even for him, so I figured this was the year to do it.  There are so many delicious looking recipes out there […]

Peanut Butter Pumpkins


I made these Peanut Butter Pumpkins for the first time four years ago.  It’s funny that I forgot about them until this year, because they were a favorite at our first BYOP (Bring Your Own Pumpkin) pumpkin carving party.  Since we were celebrating our 5th BYOP party this year, I just had to make them […]

Island Pork Tenderloin


Pork Tenderloin can be made in so many different ways.  It’s definitely a “go-to” dish for many people.  I especially love this variation because it’s easy to make, yet its sweet and saucy flavor impresses. I’m not sure why, but I love slapping rubs on meat.  There’s something satisfying about using a combination of the […]

Pumpkin Waffles


Are you on the pumpkin wagon yet?  You can tell I am!  This recipe was the perfect way to use up the rest of my pumpkin puree.  Plus, it served as the perfect breakfast break for BG in the midst of working so hard to paint the nursery Saturday morning.  We even have extra batter […]

White Chocolate Chex Mix


This recipe comes from a new dear friend of mine from church, we’ll call her “C”.  C and I were asked to coordinate the food for a big weekend church event.  This was the first time I helped coordinate such a big occasion, but C had done it many times, so I was able to […]

Snack-o’-Lantern Fruit Cups


When I saw this recipe in a magazine at my mom’s house, I knew it would be perfect for our annual pumpkin carving party. Since I already had a few desserts planned, I needed something healthier – like fruit! These were fun and easy to carve. But, I think it was even more fun to […]

Pumpkin Dip


This is the first recipe I made out of my homemade pumpkin puree.  We had our 5th annual BYOP (Bring Your Own Pumpkin) party this weekend and this was a dish I served.  Since I was making quite a few other things, this was a nice quick recipe to throw together.  The original recipe suggests […]

Pumpkin Puree


I’m addicted to pumpkin puree.  Maybe it’s the pregnancy, maybe it’s not.  But, I had a hard time reserving this pumpkin puree as an ingredient for my recipes rather than just eating it straight.  The texture is so smooth and I can not wait to make this as baby food next Fall. Making your own […]
