• Homemade Pigs-in-the-Blanket

    Pigs-in-the-Blankets were are a staple in my childhood and even still now… especially these homemade ones. Homemade (well the blanket part at least) … like from scratch My mom would always use crescent rolls for her piggies (that is what would call them), but I don’t always have crescent rolls on hand so I decided it was time to change it up a bit.  As much as I love a good crescent roll, I am not into making them from scratch so I decided to go with a more simple approach.  This dough is a a cross between biscuit and a light bread. It is super easy to mix up,…

  • Butter Biscuits… yep butter biscuits

    Butter Biscuits= YES PLEASE!  For real… y’all these are so, so good (and super easy)!! Butter Biscuits = No rolling! Growing up in the south I am no stranger to biscuits… but I am not the biggest fan of making them.  If I do make them I typically made drop biscuits, or now these butter biscuits.  Well… unless I am feeling super ambitious I will make these Magnolia Biscuits, but typically just for special occasions. But these butter biscuits… well I will make these anytime. It starts with what else… Butter! I love these because you melt the butter in the dish you will be baking the biscuits in.  Not…

  • Strawberry Bread – aka your summer bread

    Strawberry Bread is all I can think about… honestly I am all about the berries right now and especially strawberries. Strawberry Bread Time! Y’all I am so, so excited about this bread.  Not only is it super quick to make, but it is LOADED with strawberry goodness.  I mean just look at all the strawberries!   The bread itself is pretty dense, making it perfect to hold the strawberries in place, and not let them sink to the bottom of the bread.  It is also buttery, which I so love!    It is on the sweeter side… but not too sweet.   It is just so pretty! Not only is…

  • Oatmeal Cranberry Bran Muffins

    Oatmeal Cranberry Bran Muffins are my answer to my mom’s bran muffins.  Growing up mom always had these Bran Muffins in the refrigerator ready to bake, well I have updated them just a bit. Cranberry + Oatmeal + Bran = Yes! I love a good muffin for breakfast, or a snack, but I especially love them when there are cranberries, oatmeal and the sweetness of my bran muffins.  The cranberries and oats really help cut the sweetness of the muffins while adding in great texture and a bit if tartness.  If cranberries are not your thing you can use dried cherries, or another dried berry if wanted, or leave out…

  • Cinnamon Roll Bites – Your New Go-To Breakfast

    Cinnamon Roll Bites are the perfect Christmas morning breakfast.  They are quick, easy and bring the wonderful aroma of homemade cinnamon rolls (like these) without all the work. It all starts with Biscuits… These delicious cinnamon roll bites start with canned biscuits.  Yep, you read that right… canned biscuits.  That is what makes this recipe so easy, you cut up canned biscuits.  I used the grands buttermilk biscuits, but you could use whatever you have on hand.   PS…Flaky biscuits would be pretty good I bet. Let’s talk Cinnamon & Sugar (& few little something extras) Growing up I ate A LOT of cinnamon toast and these Cinnamon Roll Bites…

For this recipe I…

  • Pumpkin Cranberry Pistachios Bread

    I am a BIG fan of pumpkin (as I am sure you know), pistachios and cranberries… but I am an even bigger fan of pumpkin bread and this pumpkin bread is AMAZING!!  It is loaded with tons of yum and each bite is like a party in your mouth. PISTACHIOS & CRANBERRIES GALORE! I am all about a traditional pumpkin bread but this loaded pumpkin bread is just so, so good.   I have always loved cranberries with pumpkin but for some extra fun I wanted to add in some pistachios.  Pistachios are a favorite for me with cranberries, as in these cookies.  The cookies are SO GOOD I knew…

    It’s Pumpkin Crumb Muffin Time, Y’all!  I know it is still August, but y’all I am all about pumpkin spice everything…and these muffins are the perfect kick-off to my pumpkin obsession! Just enough spice… The thing I love most about pumpkin spice is the combo of the spices.  There is a little cinnamon, some clove, some ginger, not too much of any one spice and not too little…it really is the perfect combo.  Pumpkin spice makes me feel all warm and cozy inside, just soooo happy. These muffins have pumpkin not only int he batter but also in the topping but don’t worry it is not over powering…it is just…

  • KETO Pumpkin Muffins

    Muffins are my weakness…especially pumpkin muffins.  One of my biggest fears when I went on KETO was I would have to give up my muffins, I mean they are normally not low carb.  Thankfully that fear was put to rest with these AMAZING KETO Pumpkin Muffins. The Swirl is EVERYTHING It is no secret that I am all about anything and everything pumpkin spice.  As much as I love a good plain pumpkin muffin to make these a little extra special I added a cream cheese swirl to the top.  Isn’t just about anything better with a little cream cheese swirl? I kept it super simple with just cream cheese,…
