Vanilla Pound Cake

I started making this pound cake a few years ago because I couldn’t sleep and needed something to do. I learned two things that morning, 1) my family can sleep through anything and 2) getting you fingers caught in the paddles of the hand mixer really does hurt. Then again, […]

Peanut Butter Cookies

Do you have a peanut butter loving family? I do. My daughter and husband can put down a jar a peanut butter in a week between the two of them. They are always telling each to stay out of their peanut butter. When they start on each other I just roll my […]

Italian Wedding Cookies

One bite into these cookies, and I was transported me back to my childhood. It has been years since I had these cookies. Growing up, I can remember my mom making these during the holiday season. We were never allowed in the kitchen when she baking, I think she was […]

Red Beans & Rice

Sweet Potato Hash

I could come up with a story about how I never had a sweet potato until I moved and that would be true. But, honestly, I started making these when I needed to feed my kids and this is all I had in the pantry. Not going to lie some […]

Five Minute Bread

With three growing kids and a husband who love peanut butter sandwiches, we can go through a loaf of bread in days. That’s just during the school week, I am not even talking about when they are home for vacations or summer time. Growing kids can eat you out of […]

Basil & Mustard Skirt Steak

I am a steak and potato girl. I love all kinds of steak! I do not hate on steak! But again feeding a family of 5 with 3 growing children, the price of steak is not always something we can do. Let’s face it steak can get expensive. So we […]
