Nutella Silk Pie

This is one of the desserts I made for my son’s baptism luncheon!  It was soooo good!  We decided it was the 2nd best dessert, although truth be told nutella is always number one in my heart!  The #1 dessert was my Frozen Strawberry Yogurt Dessert!  This was also one of the easiest to make,…

Creamy Chicken Pockets

These are a  great quick dinner idea for when you have leftover turkey from holidays or rotisserie chicken.  These are one of my son’s favorite meals.  It’s also great on nights when I don’t have a lot of time to spend making dinner! Ingredients: 1 can grands biscuits Shredded Chicken Cheddar Cheese 1 can cream…

Taco Pockets

I have been trying to be a little less boring in the school lunch department.  I feel like I start out the school year doing really well, but as the months go by lunch becomes sandwiches with gogurt, veg, and fruit.  So I decided to use our leftover taco meat for a fun lunch.  This…

Homemade Caramel Popcorn

I am not a super huge fan of corn syrup.  Which is why I was bummed when I found so many recipes available for homemade caramel popcorn using corn syrup.   My son really likes caramel popcorn and for his birthday I was wanting to make him some for movie night!  I was already making…

Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

I first had Chicken Cordon Bleu at a dance when I was 14.  It was so good, and I have loved cordon bleu ever since!  But it was a bit of a bummer when I discovered that it’s actually quite time consuming and difficult to make.  So why not just make a casserole with all…

Moroccan Flower Blanket Pattern

Every year for Christmas my kids get a new blanket.  My youngest daughter loves the color red.  She is always running off with her older siblings red stuffed animals and toys.  So I decided to make her a flower blanket of red and yellow!   I made 4 kinds of flours using red, yellow, and…

Movie Night Chocolate Chex Mix

We do movie night every Friday night.  Usually I make popcorn but lately we’ve ended up with a lot of extra cereal so I’ve been doing rice krispie treats.  But the other night I was wanting chocolate so I decided to melt some chocolate chips and pour them over the chex cereal.  The problem with…

Old Fashioned Blueberry Crisp

I love making recipes from super old cook books!  Sometimes you find one that is just a gem!  This is a recipe that I found in an old cook book my mom gave me.  I made some modifications to suit my family’s tastes, but sometimes you just can’t beat old fashioned delicious! Ingredients: 2 pints fresh…

Homemade Brownie Mix

I love brownies.  To be completely honest I don’t hate any dessert.  But there is a special place in my heart for all things chocolate! A few years ago I started trying to make more and more of the foods my family eats from scratch.  The reason originally started because of food allergies, but since…

Mini Apple Pies

I LOVE pie! But the problem is that I don’t always want a whole pie and not everyone in my family likes the same pie.  It used to be that I would just make pie at Christmas or Thanksgiving and just the one that most every liked best.  But then I started cooking more with…

Fabtabulous Muddy Buddy Popcorn

So every Friday or Saturday night we have family movie night at our house.  One of my favorite things to do is make popcorn on those nights!  But I personally prefer savory popcorn so my son really is never interested in the popcorn because it is some kind of butter with salt or other seasonings…

Mini Ham & Egg Muffins

In my effort to have easier, faster, and healthier breakfasts I have started making these egg muffins.  They are super easy to make and the fun thing is that you can add different things to each without anyone refusing to eat because the muffin tins prevent the ingredients from touching!!  So you can have one…
