• 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…

  • Pumpkin Butter

    OK… I have a sad story about pumpkin butter.  As I am sure you know by now I am a BIG, BIG pumpkin fan.  One of my most favorite pumpkin treats is pumpkin butter, but when I went to buy some the other day at Trader Joes they were out!  There was none to be found… NONE!! MY Pumpkin Butter Obsession So it all started back 10+ years a go when I was aimlessly wondering through Williams Sonoma one October day.  This very sweet lady came up to me and asked if I would like to try some pumpkin butter.  I mean she had me at the word pumpkin but…

  • Sweet & Spicy Bacon

    Bacon is always a good thing in my world… but this bacon is AMAZING!!! Bake it Baby! The trick to this bacon is baking it…do you normally bake it?  I started baking mine a while ago…not only does it make perfectly crisp, but still tender & it is so much LESS messy.  There is no grease spattering up to burn you and you can let it bake while you work on something else such as eggs or gravy, making breakfast a breeze and so YUMMY!   Spice it up! For this recipe I sprinkled it with a spice combo that is a little sweet with a little heat making for a perfect piece…

  • My Go-To Biscuits…Thank you Joanna Gaines

It is Biscuit Time! I don’t know about you but I am always down for a good biscuit.  Whether it be in the morning or at dinner biscuits are ALWAYS a good idea.    They are good with gravy, jam, honey or just butter. I mean can you think of a time when biscuits are not a good idea? You copied…

  • A Christmas Tradition

    Christmas is just around the corner and I think I am going to have to make these again.  Don’t be scared…you can do this. It is all about Christmas patience Homemade cinnamon rolls are 1000% better than the canned version, but beware you have to plan ahead.  You need several hours (I started the process the night before) to let the dough proof and get ready to roll up into rolls.    SO what is proofing you ask?  Proofing is when you let the dough rise.  For this dough we are wanting it to rise, or proof, quite a bit.  The goal is at least double from its original size.…

  • Pumpkin Crumb Muffin

    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 Quiche

    Since I started on my KETO journey I have been seeing egg “muffins” all over Pinterest.  I have been wanting to make them for a long time and today was the day.  Now I am kicking myself for not making them before now. Options…Options and more Options In my book options are always a good thing.  I wanted to have something that everyone would like so I went with a bacon option, a sausage option and an all veggie option with bell peppers.  In each option I added in chopped spinach and chopped onion.   Personally all were SO GOOD, but the bacon was my favorite… everything is better with…

  • 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,…

  • Fresh Peach Muffins

    Back to school is just a few days away and that means it is time for an AMAZING back to school breakfast and these Fresh Peach Muffins are the perfect treat! Peachy Goodness Fresh Peaches are the key to these muffins.  They bring so much flavor and peachy goodness to the muffins it is so, so good.  I also love the bite of the fresh peaches.  They are tender and so juicy it tastes like your biting into a fresh peach. If you need to use frozen or canned peaches you can.  Make sure to thaw frozen out and let drain a little after cutting and drain the canned ones…

  • Strawberry & Cream Scones

    Strawberries are everywhere right now.  They are big and sweet and calling my name every time I walk into the grocery store.  I have been using them in all sorts of recipes but one of my favorites are these Strawberry & Cream Scones…they really are the perfect breakfast (or afternoon) treat. Berry Fun Strawberries, Strawberries and more strawberries.  As you can see there is strawberry in every bite of these scones.   I know some of you may be asking, what if I am not a strawberry fan or what if they don’t look good at the store…don’t worry I got you.   You can use any combo of berries…
