• It doesn’t get much better than butter & biscuits…

    Christmas may technically be over but that doesn’t mean we still can’t enjoy a little extra indulgence…like these AMAZING Butter Biscuits.  Yep you read that right Butter Biscuits.  These super tender and delicious biscuits are not only easy to make but they are cooked in butter making them AMAZING!! Bring on the Biscuits What do you love about biscuits most?  For me it is a crunchy top and a fluffy center.  And the taller the better.  These butter biscuits are tall, with a  crunchy outside and a super fluffy inside…oh yeah and they are cookies in butter.  These are pretty much the perfect biscuit. It starts with butter… So first…

  • Pumpkin in the morning

    Hello Fall…you know what that means…it is PUMPKIN time!! I have to say the beginning of Fall is one of my favorite times of the year.  Bring on the pumpkins, yummy foods and cooler weather!! A match made in pumpkin heaven… Over the next few months you will see pumpkin recipes everywhere, for everything so I thought why not start with the first meal of the day…MUFFINS (I mean breakfast)!  I love pumpkin bread for sure but pumpkin muffins are my favorite.  They are even better when loaded with cream cheese and chocolate. If you frequent starbucks (like I do) I am sure you have seen their pumpkin bread, cookies, scones and…

  • Welcoming the week with blueberry LOVE

    Hello Monday!  Oh my, where did the weekend go?  I don’t know about you but I could use a long weekend. Well since we are not going to get an extra day let’s at least start the week off right with these muffins! Lemon & Blueberry, yes please First of all I love lemon and I love blueberries but I really love the two when they are put together.    I especially LOVE this combo in the summer. The lemon is just so fresh and the berries add a sweet little burst, making these muffins AMAZING!! Muffins make me smile There is just something so fun about a muffin.  I…

  • making jam in the oven…yes the oven

    Is there anything better than homemade jam?  I don’t know about you but I love me some homemade jam, but I never thought I could make my own without a whole lot of time and trouble…well I am here to change your mind…we are going to be making jam in the oven. OK…now I know some of you might be thinking I am a little crazy.  First I am talking about making jam, and second I am talking about making jam in the oven…yes both are true. So jam in the oven, really?  That is what I thought when I first saw the recipe.  I couldn’t understand how that would…

  • it’s biscuit time

    If it were up to The Hubby it would always be biscuit time.  I honestly think he would have biscuits at every meal if I made them…unfortunately for him I rarely make them so when I do it is quite the BIG DEAL! I decided a while ago that since The Hubby loves them so much maybe it should become his job to make them. I mean he could make the biscuits when I was making dinner or the gravy (if it were breakfast…or dinner…WOW I really want gravy now). Anyway back to the biscuits…I was showing The Hubby several recipes I have gathered over the years and he settled…

  • Bacon + Jam = AMAZING

    Bacon & Jam together at last…yes you read that right today is all about Bacon Jam.  For those of you who have not had the distinct pleasure of enjoying this wonderful jam then you are going to be in for the treat of your life (ok at least this week, ok maybe today) but is really is so yummy!! I first came across bacon turned into jam at a local hamburger place.  They were putting it on their burgers instead of slices of bacon.  Now I was a little nervous when I ordered by first bacon jam burger…but all that went away after my first delicious bite.  The jam brings…

  • a berry muffin morning is a Spring must

    Spring is in full swing in my part of the world and I cannot get enough of all the yummy that comes with Spring.  Every time I walk into the produce area of my local grocery stores and farmers markets I am overwhelmed by all the beautiful veggies & fruits.  I am especially in love with all the berry goodness!! There are raspberries, blueberries, blackberries and strawberries EVERYWHERE and they look so, so good.  I love all the berry varieties but when I was in the grocery store not too long ago they had a combo of strawberries, blackberries and blueberries that were almost screaming my name (ok they were…

  • skinny McMuffin at home

    They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day (I’m not sure I agree with that, being I am not a must eat breakfast kinda gal) but if I could have one these sassy little skinny McMuffins sandwich every morning I might just change my mind. The whole idea of this skinny McMuffin came from The Hubby actually.  He has been trying to eat breakfast every morning (you know like your supposed to) and he normally fixes his famous omelette but one day he realized that we were out of egg whites so we had to come up with plan B…and this sandwich was born. First up was toasting the english…

  • get up & smell the bacon

    Spring Break is here and that means it is time to relax, have fun and EAT…& I say lets eat some bacon!! There is just something so indulgent about bacon that makes you feel like your doing something a little naughty…and trust me this sweet & spicy version is a keeper for sure!!   In my house plain bacon is special… but this version takes it to a whole new level. 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 bacon grease spattering…

  • a loaded omelette to make your morning great

    I am so proud of The Hubby.  He has been getting up at 5:00 AM three times a week to go to cross fit.  Yes you read that right…he is doing CROSS FIT!  Whats even more crazy is that he is loving it!   As part of The Hubby’s new morning routine he has been trying out some great breakfast options and this egg white omelette has become a favorite for him and me.  It started out with just a little cheese and some turkey bacon and has turned into something that is not only delicious but is healthy, filling and so pretty.  Yes I said pretty…it really is.  …
