Lemonade truly kicks off the summer feeling in our house.

It brings a total feel of relaxation knowing the stress of school is out and the crops are all in the ground. I … [Read more...]

Rustic Molasses Cookies

Rustic Molasses Cookies Somethings remind me more of home than others and molasses cookies are one of those things. Molasses cookies are one of my mom's favorite cookies, and with the blend of spices and molasses I do believe it's hard to go wrong. Finding a soft molasses cookie could be better than some of the finer things in life; it could be considered one of the finer things in life.  No wonder my mom loves them so much! Smelling a good molasses cookie bake is pretty … [Read more...]

Sinfully Delicious Homemade Whip Cream

Sinfully Delicious Homemade Whip Cream It's take me longer than I care to admit to actually publish this post because I have struggled with what to actually write about homemade whip cream.  I mean really it's whip cream. 3 simple ingredients. I always have a batch of it made up in my fridge because we use it a lot in our house but that doesn't mean I have a ton to say about it. I make my own whip cream because it's super simple to make, only requires 3 ingredients and the flavor … [Read more...]

Easy Spiced Apple Crock Pot Crumble

Easy Spiced Apple Crock Pot Crumble I feel like I am continuously saying that fall is in the air and that means some yummy desserts are ready to be made. I know that apples are available at the grocery store all year long but it's hard to beat the flavor of a fresh and crisp apple on a fall morning. After devouring a crisp apple in the morning it's time to get some set aside for dessert.  I also love the fact that this is a recipe that the kids can help with.  After you have cut … [Read more...]

Spiced Pumpkin Cake ~ Fall Is Officially Here

Fall is in the air in Colorado that is for sure. My parents even received 5 inches of snow at their place last week. I can't believe that it's truly upon us but I must say that I am ready for cooler temps. For those of you who don't know me you should be told that the colder temps the better. I have no problem keeping my house at 55 degrees, maybe I have three problems with that scenario: Cory, Coulter and Corbin. I love when the leaves start to turn and the air takes on that clean and … [Read more...]

Grand Champion One Bowl Easy Chocolate Cake Recipe

Through the years my mom taught my brother how to cook and fend for himself. Not knowing his way around a kitchen wasn't an option. He was responsible for cooking one meal a month same as I was from start to finish including the meal planning. He can grill a mean steak, whip up some wonderful potatoes and make a cake that won grand champion at the county fair each year. Now I said my brother knew his way around the kitchen and can read a recipe as good as anyone. He didn't really care to … [Read more...]

Free Printable Cupcake Toppers – Flowers & Butterflies

The weather here in Colorado has officially warmed up and this makes me want to host parties every weekend.  BBQ's are one of my favorite things because I am a social butterfly.  I love hanging around people, watching everyone's kids run around and play pretend/games together and the feel that everyone is having a good time and getting to know each other better.  New friends are made every year at BBQ's and the relaxed atmosphere they have. BBQ's around our house are filled with good drinks, … [Read more...]

Blue Raspberry Lemonade Cupcake Recipe

I have a few skills in the kitchen and one of those is making a mean cake.  I took cake decorating in 4-H and picked up a few skills from there, possibly more than a few but since decorating with kids I think they have suffered a tad.  Even though my skills have suffered doesn't keep me out of the kitchen though.  These days though I prefer to look for the easier recipes, you know the ones that I can dress up in a hurry and people rave about the flavor. The flavor is what truly … [Read more...]

Cherry Almond Oatmeal Cookies

Cookies were a huge part of my life growing up. We made them constantly because my family loved them and my mom was and still is a firm believer in learning how to cook. She taught us all how to cook at a young age and we spent plenty of time in the kitchen. I can't get over how much math I truly did growing up with my cooking and baking skills. Cookies usually have pretty simple ingredients to multiply by or add depending on the level of your learner and my mom always made us do the math of … [Read more...]

17 Must Have Cookie Recipes

My family loves cookies! For them it's easy to grab and go and for me it's easy to put into Cory's lunches during the summer. He eats at home most days but there are a few days that I have to pack a lunch for. Cookies are a must, especially when one of the boys gets to go and has to have a packed lunch. It's kind of the bribery to get my husband to take one of the boys through lunch. The boys are ready to go regardless, but sometimes Cory needs a little extra incentive. I have my normal stand by … [Read more...]

Strawberry Cream Cheese Crescent Bars

Somethings are just meant to go together like peanut butter and jelly, Mork and Mindy (who remember that show), strawberries and cream cheese. Yes they are meant to go together in the a soft and subtly sweet kind of way. It's really hard to ruin this combination. Strawberry cheesecakes are the perfect dessert for a get together, especially when your looking for something to show a lot of class like these individualized cheesecakes. However, sometimes you need something a little more, … [Read more...]

Make Your Own Sweetened Condensed Milk

Living in the country I try my absolute hardest not to run out of things, but hey it happens. I can't always be looking ahead and realize I need some spur of the moment dessert. One of the things I only buy once a year happens to be sweetened condensed milk because it is $4 a can the rest of the year. That cost adds up. A couple of weeks ago I was just in that position. I needed a dessert and I am totally in love with the individual cheesecakes I have been making. They only need 6 ingredients … [Read more...]
