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 […]

Healthy Egg, Cheese & Turkey Bacon Breakfast Sandwich


This summer, for the 4th of July weekend, we visited our good friends (M & D) in Nashville, TN.   I went to college in Nashville, so BG and I make a trip down there at least once a year to visit my best friends from college.  M was one of my college roomies and D […]

Pennies on a Platter is Looking Better than Ever!


Pennies on a Platter is back!  And, with a new design!  Thanks to Delicious Design Studios for working with me on putting together exactly what I envisioned for this redesign.  Do you like it?  I do! You might be asking, “Where have you been this whole summer”, and “What has been keeping you so occupied […]
