Apple Cider Pancakes

Apple Cider Pancakes have been on my mind for a few years. When we lived in Michigan, fall means going to apple cider mills. They have all the things that pumpkin patches have, except some don’t have pumpkins. They have hay and places for the kids to play and get the clean kind of messy. […]

Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps are a simple dinner that are not only easy to put together but healthy. My family all loves to eat lettuce wraps. Because it’s a certain healthy choice, I try any recipe I find. They include rather simple ingredients. Start with chicken breast and cut into small pieces – no bigger […]

Crustless Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie has always been one of my favorite meals. It truly is comfort food to me. I requested it several years in a row for my birthday dinner. I love vegetables, and always have. And I think I just loved the fact that this was a pie stuffed full of veggies instead of […]

Pumpkin Pecan Granola

This Pumpkin Pecan Granola is something that I’ve been wanting to make for a long time. I really just needed to wait until it was socially acceptable to make pumpkin flavored things. It turned out much better than even I expected. I love all things fall, especially pumpkin flavor. And I also love granola. As […]

Traditional Chex Mix

I am typically drawn toward the non-traditional when it comes to food. I’m always trying to make recipes just a little more exciting in some way. This recipe is very much like the traditional, savory type of Chex mix that has been around forever. If left to my own devices, I probably never would have […]

Oatmeal Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

These Oatmeal Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are kind of amazing. At least to my taste buds. I love all the things going on in these cookies. I love all things fall, and pumpkin flavored things are definitely at the top of that list. We recently moved back to the Southwest and I am seriously missing […]

Perfect Key Lime Pie

It might be bold of me to declare this the Perfect Key Lime Pie, but I don’t really care. It’s absolutely delicious. It’s also amazing the variations in the different recipes that I have tried over the years that claim to be the perfect key lime pie. Completely different methods for making the pie, and […]

Peanut Butter Granola

I really love peanut butter and I also really love granola. And this granola also happens to have chocolate in it. This peanut butter granola is fantastically delicious. Since the first time I made it, I make sure that this is always made up in the cupboard. There were several recipes that I found for […]

Sweet Spicy Chex Mix

This might be my very favorite Chex mix. There are so many different types of these snack mixes these days that it’s hard to put a name to a favorite, but this is it. My husband would argue. He prefers traditional Muddy Buddies, or Puppy Chow with all it’s peanut butter and chocolate goodness. He […]
