• Lucky Charm Cookies

    Lucky Charm Cookies are the perfect last minute St Patricks Day treat!  They are not only super fun they are SUPER YUMMY!! Are you a Lucky Charm? I was strolling down eh cereal aisle the other day, remembering all the kid cereal I ate growing up.  Everything from Coco Puffs to Captain Crunch (I liked the one with berries) to Cookie Crunch… and then I saw Lucky Charms.  I LOVED the marshmallows in Lucky Charms so much.   The unicorn was my favorite one, but I was also a big rainbow fan as well.  As I was standing there reminiscing for a second it hit me… let’s put them into…

  • Iced Sugar Cookies

    These Classic Iced Sugar Cookies are a MUST MAKE.  They are super tender, topped with a delicious icing with hints of vanilla bean in each bite and fun sprinkles.  A perfect cookie for any Holiday or Special Occassion. No rolling here One of the things that annoys me about sugar cookies is having to roll them out.  Rolling pins and I don’t have the best relationship.  I tend to roll things too thin, or not thin enough…it just never seems to be right.  With these cookies though there is no rolling…that is one of the reasons why I love these cookies. I also love how tender they are.  Not so…

  • Key Lime Cookies- The Perfect Spring Treat

    Key Lime anything is a must have in the warmer months… and according to the calendar it should start warming up soon.  That means it is time to celebrate that cute little green fruit! Key Lime Cookies for the Win! Pie is what most people, including myself, think of when they hear “key lime” but that is changing.  Don’t get me wrong I love a good pie, but they are also more involved to make.  These cookies literally come together in about 15 minutes and are ready to indulge in within a hour.  No chilling, no wait time to set up… mix, bake, ice and eat.  DONE! Yes… you can…

  • Cookies & Cream Blondies

    I am a BIG Blondie fan.  I just love how the brown sugar caramelizes to make each bite better than the last.  To make these blondies extra special I added in a few favorites, Oreos and Sprinkles! A little extra Blondies are definately good on their own but when you add in a little something extra they become AMAZING.  The add-in options are truly endless.  You could add in candy such as snickers or peanut butter cups.  You could add in nuts or pretzels.  You could mix in additional chocolate chips such as semi-sweet, butterscotch or dark chocolate.   For these blondies I decided to go with oreo cookies, sprinkles…

  • Strawberry Cobbler

    I found myself in quite the situation yesterday…there were a ton of strawberries in my refrigerator that I had to use..  I had planned on making a strawberry dessert for Easter, but due to some family stuff I didn’t get too.  Now I had to figure out something yummy to make with them. Cobbler is was! Was craving cobbler… As the weather gets warmer, I do live in southeast Texas so we are warming up down here, all I want are fruit desserts and cobbler is always at the top of the list.  Growing up peach cobbler or blackberry cobbler were my favorites but once when I was in college…

  • no rollin here for these sugar cookies…

    Summer is here.  The kids are almost out of school (or maybe they already are) and that means it is time to BAKE!  What do you like to bake int he summer…how about cookies?  How about no roll sugar cookies?  OK perfect…lets start there!! I just love the light texture of the cookie with the sweet frosting that is colored in all the best summer colors…or any colors you want. No rolling here The one problem I have with frosted sugar cookies though is that most of them require you to refrigerate them, then roll them out, then bake them, let them cool then finally frost them.  Now I understand that they are totally…

  • Spring Brussels Sprouts everyone will LOVE

    I can’t believe Easter has already come and gone and that we are more than half way through April.  That means warmer temps, longer days & humidity in my part of the world.  It also means it is time to celebrate all spring flavors and one of my favorite is lemon. & Some Brussels Sprouts Too Not only do I love lemons in the Spring but I really love them with Brussels Sprouts….especially these roasted ones with a little parmesan cheese.  The char from the outside skins on the sprouts really pairs well with the brightness and tang from the lemon juice and zest. I also think it is really…

  • Valentines at home

    Valentines Day is almost here and I don’t know about you but I love to have a special dinner at home rather fighting the crowds…and this year it is all about steaks. Not your ordinary steak The Hubby loves steaks, and is always up to grilling his favorite cut of meat but this time it is going to be so much more than just a grilled steak…he just doesn’t know it yet. First off we need to season the steaks.  Most of the time I like to keep things simple with just a little salt & pepper but for this steak I want something a little different so I am going to add…
