March Madness Cookie Bouquet


Last weekend we had a March Madness party at our house.  One of the girls brought a cookie bouquet that she made for this event.  It was so cute I had to ask if I could post a photo of it on here. Now, who’s watching the big game tonight?  Who are you cheering on?  […]

Amish Friendship Chocolate Muffins


Has anyone ever given you (or tried giving you) Amish Friendship Bread starter dough? My friend at work got us hooked on it.  It’s a yeast concoction that you feed every few days with flour, sugar and milk until the day you use it for baking.  It’s kept in a ziplock bag and will expand, […]

April Fools! Spaghetti & Meatballs… or not?


Spaghetti & Meatballs like you’ve never tasted it before!  I just made this for our small group Bible study tonight.  Gotta run or we’ll be late!  I’ll post the recipe for this deceiving dessert ( yup! DESSERT!) when I get home.  For now, can you guess what this really is? *UPDATE** Okay, I’m back!  This […]

Italian Pizzelle Ice Cream Sandwiches


Last week we had dinner at a friends’ home.  I was in charge of bringing dessert.  Since the meal was a classic Italian dish, Chicken Cacciatore, I wanted to make a dessert that fit the “theme.”  I had this recipe bookmarked on Tastespotting for quite some time and knew this was the perfect opportunity to […]

Deviled Eggs


This is the last dish I’m posting from the baby shower.  I love Deviled Eggs, so it was hard for me not to eat them all before my guests arrived.  You can do many variations for the filling, but I used just a basic combination of the cooked yolk, light mayo, dijon mustard, a little […]

Sugar-Free Blueberry Cupcakes


Usually, sugar-free to me means “yuck!”  Like, sugar-free pudding…bleh!  However, somehow these cupcakes are awesome!  I had some left over from the baby shower and Ben kept eating them! **Ben just peaked over my shoulder and read the above.  He’s worried now that all my readers think he’s 300 pounds because I’m always mentioning how […]

Chicken Salad


I decided to make this my first post of the baby shower recipes, since lately I’ve had a lot of requests for Chicken Salad recipes.  Now, if I get anymore I can direct them to my blog instead of typing it out again and again.  (Okay, so I really copy/paste which isn’t a big deal…but […]

Baby Shower for a Very Cute Diabetic Mommy


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 […]
