Cinnamon Raisin Granola

Here I am with another granola recipe. I can’t help myself!  This Cinnamon Raisin Granola has got to be the simplest granola ever but it is my absolute favorite! It tastes just like an oatmeal raisin cookie, but it’s granola!  I think we’re do for something healthy!  I mean the last recipe I gave you…


Slow Cooker Spinach and Artichoke Dip

It’s almost the end of January so what does that mean?  Super Bowl time! Football, football, football for many of you and for the rest of us it’s food, food and more food.  I mean really right?!  Not everyone likes football,  but everyone loves food!  Super Bowl is another excuse to have a party and…


Frozen Yogurt Fruit Pops

I love making these for my family!  These Frozen Yogurt Fruit Pops make a great snack and the perfect dessert for the kiddos.  In my house we call these yougrt popsicles and my little guy loves them.  There are no rules for these, they don’t even require a recipe.  My son, who is two and…


Mini Swirled Strawberry Cheesecakes

I told you those berries inspired me! Mini cheesecakes, yum! Add a strawberry swirl, double yum! These look so delicious and man oh man are they fantastic. These really hit the spot! Cheesecake is so simple to make and I don’t think I’ve met a person yet who doesn’t like cheesecake.  So what are you…


Spicy Slow Cooker Creamy White Chicken Chili

We love soups and chilis over at my house. During the fall and winter I make soup probably twice a week if not more. Nothing is quite as satisfying as soup when it’s cold and wet outside. Especially for Chris when he’s working outside all day. Every time I make soup or chili I double…


Meyer Lemon Panna Cotta with a Raspberry Sauce

The first time I ever had panna cotta was at a cooking class my sister and I took with my parents.  The class was a Christmas gift to my mom a few years ago. We had a great time!  We took the class just for fun!  My parents had actually done it once before when they were…


Toasted Coconut Pineapple Granola

Well, we are well into January, are you sticking to your resolutions for this new year?  I hope you are doing better than I am.  I haven’t even started mine.  Whoops!  I vow to start today!  Let’s hope I actually do.  I’ll let you know how that goes later! I think just about everyone promises…


Triple Chocolate Bakery Muffins

Happy Friday!   I hope everyone enjoyed the craziness of the holidays!  Christmas morning was so much fun at our house this year.  Our son was so excited to open presents!  It was so different from last year.  Last year our little guy was only 1.5 years old and didn’t really understand what was going…


Chewy Molasses Cookies

Have you ever tried molasses plain, all on it’s own?  Well don’t!  It’s like vanilla extract, it smells good and it always makes things taste better, but all on it’s own, yuck!  Trust me!   Don’t let that fool you though.  When you mix molasses with a few other ingredients and bake them a delicious…


HoHoHo! Cake Mix Cookies

Thanksgiving has come and gone and the rest of the holiday season is in full swing.  What does that mean for me?  It’s cookie time!  I know there are millions of others out there like me that pretty much the minute we’re done stuffing our faces with Thanksgiving dinner we jump right into cookie mode….
