Baby Shower for a Very Cute Diabetic Mommy

dsc_8225

As I mentioned in a previous post, I volunteered to host a baby shower last week for one of my co-workers.  She is also a sweet friend, so I was excited for the opportunity.  It was only the second baby shower I’ve planned (the other was almost 3 years ago before I had this blog).  […]

English Muffins

Lately, I haven’t had time to eat breakfast at home before running off to work.  I work so early (6 AM) that I’d rather use any extra minutes for sleep than sitting and eating a bowl of cereal.  Once in a while I’ll stop at Starbucks, but that’s definitely too expensive to try and do […]

Oatmeal Raisin Sandwich Cookies

Here’s the post you’ve been waiting for… for an entire day! Was it a long day?  It was for me!  I couldn’t wait to get home and post this.  Thanks, again, to Annie’s Eats for the wonderful timing in sharing this recipe!  (Right when Ben started his Little Debbie sandwich cookie kick.)  I brought a […]

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I held a baby shower luncheon on Friday afternoon for my co-worker.  Our entire department (of around 12 people) were invited to come over to my home on their lunch break and celebrate.  I’ll post about the recipes I used later this week. Since it was during a lunch break, there wasn’t really any time […]

Apple Dippin’ Peanut Butter Cookies

Do you ever eat apples dipped in peanut butter? I do! So, when I saw these cookies on Picky Palate it didn’t take me long to decide to make them.  She’s brilliant for coming up with this recipe! My recommendation is to make these for consumption within a few hours (which really won’t be a […]

Foodbuzz Tastemakers: Kerrygold Butter

pure-irish-butter

As part of Foodbuzz’s Tastemaker program, I periodically receive food samples to test.  Sometimes it’s an ingredient for a recipe, or sometimes it’s an actual product that should be eaten as is.  Recently, I received free butter from Kerrygold. This all-natural dairy product is from the heartland of Ireland and, therefore, was just in time […]

Zeppole (Italian Doughnuts)

dsc_7928

Last week, we had some friends over for dinner.  For the main dish I served the Italian Pasta Bake, so for dessert I wanted to stay true to the Italian theme.  When I received Giada’s New Italian Favorites cookbook for Christmas, this was one of the first recipes I marked.  A few weeks later, we […]

Mini Chocolate Stout Cakes

As promised, here is the recipe for the Chocolate Stout Cake we served Saturday night for our friends in Detroit after the Chicken & Mushroom Boxty dinner. While my best friend and I were out shopping for the ingredients, I came across these miniature individual cake pans at Joann Fabrics.  Because these were just so […]

Chicken & Mushroom Boxty

St Patty’s day is almost here.  Last week I made the Shamrock Shake Cupcakes, because I was getting the Irish itch.  This weekend, while visiting my best friend in Michigan, we decided to make an Irish meal and invited some of her friends over to share it with us. After contemplating a few options, we […]
