Monday Menu – Levian Bakery Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tweet I love cookies so much… they’re so easy to make. So easy to take and grab as you walk past them because they’re calling to you from their plate on the counter. Especially chocolate chip cookies and even more so these ones. When I first started blogging I caught an episode of Throwdown with…

Monday Menu ~ Baked pasta with béchamel & tomato sauce

Tweet When I was growing up we would go to my grandparents house for the weekend and my grandma would always make dinner. Coming from an Italian background dinner was always together as a family, at the table, and full of delicious food. One of my favorites was my grandmas homemade tomato sauce with Italian…

Monday Menu ~ Cider Glazed Pumpkin Donuts

Tweet I’ve mentioned it about a half dozen or more times but I love fall & pumpkin treats! One of my favorite treats lately has been pumpkin donuts… crisp on the outside, soft and warm on the inside, a little spicy, and a sweet from the cream cheese frosting that is spread over the top……

Monday Menu ~ Soft & Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

Tweet Over the weekend I got this craving for some peanut butter cookies. But not just regular ones… they had to be a little thick, soft, and chewy and that meant making them myself and experimenting a little bit to get them exactly the way I wanted. Usually, experimenting means that I have to try…

Monday Menu – Super Simple Jello Salad

Tweet It’s been a long time since I shared a recipe with you guys. I suppose that’s because I haven’t been baking or making anything all that exciting lately and that’s because I’ve been trying to cut back on the sweets and stick with a more healthy diet.  You know… that whole lifestyle change thing…

Monday Menu – A few of my favorite things

Tweet Almost more than cooking and baking I love finding some kitchen tools, gadgets, pans, and bakeware to use or not use if it’s too pretty. I decided that there is more to tasty recipes than just the recipes and pictures of the delicious food. You see without some of the tools & cookware I…

Monday Menu – Beefy Nacho Soup

Tweet Dinner around here can be a pain in the butt at times with 4 kids and a husband that tends to be picky. This means that they all don’t like the same veggies, fruits, salad dressing, meat, and the list goes on and on and if it happens to be something that they all…

Monday Menu – Mini BBQ Meatloaves

Tweet I’m back!! I’d love to say that I’m happy to be back but that’s a lie. I loved Florida and all the sun & warm weather… I am happy to get back into the swing of this blogging thing though. I feel like I’ve been gone forever even though it’s only been a week……

Monday Menu – Pumpkin Cheesecake

Tweet I love baking and I think that if I had a choice I would open a bakery. All day I would make delicious pies, cakes, cookies, and all sorts of other delicious treats! But for now I will settle for making all of those things in moderation for my friends and family. Fall and…

Monday Menu – Minute Rice Ready to Serve

Tweet I’ve tried time and again to make fried rice and every time I have failed. It’s always turned out… crappy and then I started some investigation into what makes it perfect. Well, first and foremost the rice can’t be freshly made and this has been my biggest mistakes. You need to cook the rice…
