Chocolate Peanut Butter Ritz Drizzles

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ritz Drizzles I don't know about you but I love those ritz cracker sandwiches that are covered in chocolate but heaven knows I am a horrible dipper.  I can't dip a thing weather it's cake pops, ritz crackers or strawberries.  If practice makes perfect than I should be a saint because my lack of dipping doesn't keep me from trying.  However, that doesn't mean I don't look for easier ways to get that yummy goodness.  Hence we have Chocolate Peanut … [Read more...]

Homemade Taco Seasoning ~ Make Taco Night About Your Flavors

Homemade Taco Seasoning Tacos are loved in our house.  I mean LOVED. They are on the menu almost weekly and they are always my "back-up" meal plan. When you live as far as I do from a a grocery store, take out is even farther. Farther means it is pretty much out of the question because let's face it when dinner is a fail everyone is already hungry and the hour it will take to get takeout is never going to happen. The problem with tacos in our house? I love taco seasoning and Cory … [Read more...]

4 Quick Breakfast Foods That Can Be Eaten As You Walk Out The Door

Harvest is in full force and I admit to have been getting pretty lax around the house about cooking breakfast. Cory is not a huge breakfast eater except our Sunday Morning Homemade Pancakes (with chocolate chips of course), Coulter eats breakfast at school and I often times just use my coffee as breakfast. It has dairy in it so it should count right? I have been trying to get better about this because Corbin needs breakfast and Cory and I should set better examples. I have been working hard … [Read more...]

Strawberry Rhubarb Freezer Jam Recipe

Rhubarb. The simple word that can strike fear in many peoples hearts because of the over abundance that one rhubarb plant can produce.  If you have more than one rhubarb plant you had better have some ideas on what your going to do with it.  Lots of ideas on what your going to do with it actually because rhubarb is the weed that keeps on giving.  I was ecstatic when my mom sent me home with a whole cooler of rhubarb because I have been forbidden from growing "that weed" as my … [Read more...]

24 Awesome Crock Pot Recipes

Summer will be here before you know it and for me that means my desire for cooking goes down.  It is hot outside and then it's hot in my house and the last thing I really want is to heat the house up with the oven or stand over a boiling pot.
