Simple Sugar Muffins

Simple Sugar Muffins

I rarely make something unique or creative, but when I do I typically need a basic recipe to go off of that I can expand on. Several weeks ago I modified a basic muffin recipe to make it a bit sweeter so I could add more good stuff to it. So, I thought I’d share […]

Pumpkin Chai Protein Shake


I am a serious fan of all things pumpkin. My mom did it to us kids growing up. Come the fall, I can’t think of enough things to make with pumpkin and it’s the number one smell of the season for me. As I mentioned to you last week, protein shakes are going to be […]

3 Amazing Caramel Recipes For The Holidays


I recently received an email announcing new Werther’s Original Baking Caramels, and asking if I’d be interested in hosting a Mommy Party. Initially I hesitated.

Homemade Teething Biscuits

Homemade Teething Biscuits

It was during my pregnancy that I began making decisions about how I wanted to feed my boys. Because their big sister has so many problems with food, I wanted to do everything within my power to not repeat or completely avoid the same problems. When they began eating, I made their food. And I […]

Green Enchiladas


When I was a kid, my Mom would make us green enchiladas… though they were never green. Then, what made these enchiladas green was the use of Ortega chilies in the recipe. As kids, we didn’t like them. As an adult, pile them on! Now that I make these for my family, I have my […]
