Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

I have been on a real Pumpkin and Oatmeal kick lately. The combination just feels so wholesome and fall-ish, am I right?  If you haven’t tried the Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies I posted last week…oh, my. Give them a go, won’t you. I suppose since they are cookies and all, you couldn’t really call them “wholesome” unless you were […]

Creamy Chicken Alfredo Pasta Bake

Today I’m sharing a very simple, easy to prepare, dinner recipe that is sure to put a smile on many (if not all) of the faces at your dinner table. Penne pasta and roasted chicken pieces are covered in homemade alfredo sauce and then sprinkled with mozzarella cheese and panko bread crumbs. Pop it into the oven letting the […]

A Heaping Cup Of Beautiful

This fall my family and I have been fortunate to spend a lot of time together at beautiful Bear Lake. The weather has been unusually warm considering it’s the end of October! The leaves have all changed color here in our neck of the woods and most of them have fallen to the ground laying in […]

How To Make Homemade Jam From Frozen Raspberries, Blueberries and Marionberries

Homemade jam has to be one of my all time favorite things to make. I love the way my house smells when I make it. I love the beautiful bright color of the jam. I love stacking jars and jars of it in my pantry. And most of all…baby. I love the taste. There really […]

Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

To say that these Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are good, would be the understatement of the grand universe. They are soft, moist, loaded with oats, chocolate and fall time pumpkin flavor. My dear friend Julie sent me the recipe last week, and I have to admit to making them twice in the past few days. They are simple […]

Lasagna Soup

Several months ago, my dear friend Heather called me on the phone. She informed my that while on vacation she’d visited a cute little shop that served the most amazing soup. It was Italian in flavor, hearty in texture, and had big fat Lasagna noodles in it. She loved it, knew I would love it, and […]

Breadstick Bones with Blood Red Dipping Sauce

My kids think these breadsticks are The Bomb Dot Com. They were pretty excited to see their favorite Olive Garden Breadstick recipe al dressed  up and formed in the shape of bones. They were equally impressed when they got to dip them into blood-red pizza sauce and say things like “ooooooo-eeeeeee….it’s like bloooooooood” to each other while they dangled warm breadstick bones dripping […]

Sweet and Salty Halloween Munch Mix

This Halloween season I wanted to post a treat that would be simple to make, easy to store, great to give away, and yummy to munch on. A chose a Halloween Munch Mix that is both sweet and a little bit salty, because that is such a nice combination. Wouldn’t you agree? Sweet, salty, crunchy […]

You could include them as an activity in a school class Halloween party, you could serve them for dessert at a party, or you could package them nicely and send them to your old high school boy friend. […]

How to make Witches Brew

Witches Brew just might be the easiest spooky treat you will ever make in your life. It only takes two ingredients, and is the cause for much ”oooo-ing” and “ahhhhh-ing” from each and every goblin who sees it. Smokey puffs of goodness flowing out of a big black pot can do that to a person, […]
