Pepperoni Pizza Rolls


This is a fabulous recipe I have played with for a long time. I think I finally have it mastered. I never take these anywhere that I’m not asked for the recipe. They are super delicious, and best just out of the oven. However, I always freeze some in gallon zip lock bags. Then I […]

  These crepes would make a wonderful holiday/vacation breakfast. My kids thinks they are fantastic, and you can fill them with so many fun things!

Beach Street Lemon Chicken


If you are ready for something besides dessert, raise your hand. Alright, maybe I’m the only one raising my hand. But, let’s face it. We really should eat something in December besides sugar, shouldn’t we? I know that my taste buds are sugared out for the moment….I am in need of something fantastically delicious, that […]

Peanut Butter Popcorn


I found this great recipe over at The Double Dipped Life. Krista is the blogger there and has a ton of original recipes such as these. If you are using unpopped popcorn instead of the microwave kind I would definitely butter and salt to the popcorn after it’s been popped.  I have been having a small addiction lately for […]

Peanut Butter Cups


These peanut butter cups are seriously one of my favorite treats ever. They are pretty simple to make and can EASILY be made in a pan instead of in individual cups (which is a huge time saver). They also freeze super well so you can make them in advance, which is also a bonus. Peanut […]

Orange Sweet Rolls and Cinnamon Sweet Rolls


Sweet rolls…..they take a bit of time to make, but are so worth it! This recipe is one I have fiddled with  and changed many times over the past several years. I think I’ve arrived at something now that doesn’t need anymore changing. I usually make 1/2 the batch into orange rolls and the other half into cinnamon […]
