Granola Bars

I started making these a few years ago when I wanted to make sure that my kids got something quick and healthy for breakfast on those busy school mornings. Getting three kids to two different schools on opposite sides of the city and still make it to work was never […]

Strawberry Scones

Nothing in my house goes to waste. Either it is being used in recipes or being turned into compost in the back yard to grow even more food. We use everything. Why throw away money? That is where I got the idea to make these for the kids and hubby […]

Apple Cinnamon Raisin Baked Oatmeal

If you have growing kids you know they will eat everything and anything that is not tied down. If you kids are not to that age, let me be your canary in the coal mine: when they start growing, they eat everything!! We are not out of the cold weather […]

Banana Muffins

My kids, who usually eat everything not nailed down, have decided to go on a banana strike. I buy bananas every two weeks, and it looks like this past trip was a no-go. They didn’t even touch them. They ate all the apples we keep under them, all the blueberries, […]

Eggs Benedict

When my husband first asked me to make Eggs Benedict for him, I was nervous. I had never made anything like this before. Making a mother sauce can be intimidating. I understand. With music playing and a brave face on, I was going to make it work. At least, that […]

Apple Cinnamon Raisin Baked Apples

Getting a hot and healthy breakfast is something many of us strive for. But our hectic weekday mornings can be tricky. Most the time it’s just easier to hit the drive-through on the way work or school. If I told you that in less than seven minutes you can have […]

Brussel Sprout & Ham Quiche

Making a quiche is one of the most inexpensive meals you can make that is still healthy for you. When your budget gets tight, you start getting creative with meals, and quiches are great for creative meals! Usually I make mini-quiches when we are cooking for a large group of […]

Sausage Gravy & Biscuits

It is said that you can learn a lot about a culture just by eating the food. Well, if that is true then the South is boring. Or at least every recipe that I have encountered for sausage gravy is. When I first moved here, I wanted to dive in […]

Easy Fluffy Biscuits

Living in the South, you are required to have a made-from-scratch biscuit recipe, and everyone’s grandma has the best one. Well not to brag, but these biscuits are the bee’s knees. They are light, fluffy, and great with jam and honey or smothered with sausage gravy. When my family was […]
