Copycat Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies

Oatmeal Creme Pies

This week I’m giving you TWO Oatmeal Creme Pie recipes.  Seriously.  This recipe is the one you need first, before the other I’m sharing with you later this week. I’ve made you oatmeal cookie sandwiches before, and I thought they were reminiscent of the Little Debbie version…until I made these.  These are like it.  The cookie […]

Saturday Seeds + A Word About Bullies

Preschool

Judah started school this week.  His first day, he was excited, then nervous, then excited again, then scared again.   On the drive there, he mentioned how Daniel Tiger was scared about school, too.  That seemed to help. When we arrived and walked into his classroom, his fears immediately subsided once he met his nice […]

Pinterest Party: Baked Buffalo Cauliflower Dip

Baked Buffalo Cauliflower Dip

A surprisingly tasty appetizer, made with pureed cauliflower and reminiscent of a buffalo chicken dip. There doesn’t seem to be much desired when talking about cauliflower.  I love it roasted and lightly salted, or slathered with melted cheese.  But, it still is pretty overlooked when  talking about favorite vegetables. Let me help you change your […]

Pinterest Party: Snickers Cake

Snickers Cake

A dessert to please a crowd, with boxed cake mix as the base, soaked in a caramel sauce then garnished with a whipped Snickers topping. Are you one of those people that pins a “million” recipes on Pinterest but never finds the time to go back and actually make them?  That’s totally me.  Since this […]

Summer is winding down and school is starting (or already started in many places).  Judah finished up SoccerTots, and judging by the photo above, he probably didn’t learn much about soccer but I know he really enjoyed going each week.  At this young age, the program is really focusing on learning basic soccer skills (soccer […]

Tea Setter

Tea Setter

Recently, I learned that a college friend, Matt Kitchen, started Tea Setter.  His venture is pretty darn cool and something I think you all would love, so I wanted to publish a little review about it.  But, since I’m not an expert when it comes to drinking tea, I decided to turn to my brother-in-law […]

Key Lime Pie Donuts

Key Lime Pie Doughnut

Fried refrigerated biscuit dough, smeared with key lime pie ingredients gives these doughnuts the top rank of a dessert menu or serve as a very guilty breakfast. Remember these donuts?  Right after I made them, I used this lime curd to create a Key Lime Pie donut.  In fact, these donuts are the sole reason […]

Strawberry Cream Donuts

These donuts (or doughnuts, if you prefer) are quickly thrown together when using refrigerated biscuit dough, and then topped with my favorite strawberry cream cheese frosting. Let’s talk.  I’m up at 2:30 AM writing this post because I can not sleep.  For the life of me, I cannot rest after waking up in panic thinking […]

Saturday Seeds

preschool storytime

It’s August.  August is my birthday month, and although it’s not happening for another 23 days (yes, I’m counting) I am still in disbelief that I’m turning 33 years old and my next milestone is 40.  Where has the time gone? Ben and I were just discussing our age the other day.  He’s two years […]

Mighty Fine Burgers [Austin, TX]

Mighty Fine Burgers

If you personally know me and Ben, you already know that we are burger joint freaks.  We love a good burger, and we especially love when a fast food restaurant serves it up well. There are a few requirements on our list in order for us to declare a burger joint one of our faves: […]

Lime Curd

Lime Curd

This may be a lime curd, but you can use whichever citrus you prefer. Have you ever made a lime curd?  Or, had a chance to eat some, at that?  I have an idea for a recipe in my head that I need lime curd for, so I made some the other day.  Although I […]
