Happy 30th Birthday, Ben!

Ben turned 30 years old yesterday.  We celebrated with our annual BYOP (Bring Your Own Pumpkin) party, then I planned a surprise party for him later that evening.  We finished the night with a gathering at our friend’s home to watch the UFC fight and eat this lovely carrot cake.  No, I didn’t make the […]

Gundy’s Breakfast Casserole

We have a lot of “food days” at work.  My boss always brings the same dish because everyone loves it and demands it.  :)  It is a breakfast casserole made primarily with potatoes, sausage, onions and eggs.  This dish feeds a lot of people and keeps well for leftovers.  So, I made this last Saturday […]

Taco Soup

The weather is finally getting chillier, so naturally we’re in the mood for a chili type meal.  This Taco Soup I found on Emily’s blog, Rediscovering the Joy of Cooking, hit the spot!  I believe it is originally a Paula Deen recipe.  Emily omitted the olives, as did I.  I like olives, but I didn’t […]

Apple Strudel Muffins

The second recipe I made with my apples from the Epelgaarden.  I love Allrecipes.com because of the reviews for each recipe. Most of the reviews for these muffins said to add cinnamon and use half brown sugar and half regular sugar in the batter.  They also said to shred most of the apple and leave […]

Apple Pie Cupcakes

Here’s the first apple recipe from the apples I brought home from our apple picking day.  Annie from Annie’s Eats made these and took such gorgeous photos of them. I served these at small group last night and they were a hit. I misjudged my timing in making these.  At 4pm, I had an appointment […]

Apple Picking at Epelgaarden [Madison, WI]

My in-laws were in town this weekend.  Usually when they come to town we drive up to Madison, WI to see Ben’s brother and his wife.  So, this weekend when we drove up there, our sister-in-law made plans for the gals to go apple picking while the guys were golfing.  Our friends from Chicago also […]

Wow.. life got busy. Thank goodness for my catalog of quick recipes, because that’s all I’ve been able to make lately. You haven’t seen any new recipes up in a while because I haven’t made anything new. I guess it’s okay to reuse recipes…that’s what this blog is for, right? But, I do not want […]

Gigi’s Cupcakes [Nashville, TN]

IMG_4018

If you live in Nashville, or ever visit, you must stop at Gigi’s Cupcakes for a nice treat. Since we visit Nashville often, I’ve looked up cupcake places in the area and found this one months ago. But, we never had the chance to actually check it out the last few times we were in […]

Quick Fix: Baked Brie

DSC_5034

We had a spaghetti dinner Saturday night at our friends. I was asked to bring an appetizer, so I quickly looked through some of the food blogs I read for ideas. This Baked Brie recipe from Jaime stood out because it looked fast and extremely easy! I made a quick list to jet out to […]
