Say what?! I went and took a picture of a dinner recipe, which means you know you need to make it. If you like pasta, that is. I hosted a bake exchange last night that resulted in 12 kinds of amazingness in my freezer that I’m trying not to think about so it will last longer than […]

Mom’s Recipes: Slow Cooker Tomato Sauce

Slow Cooker Tomato Sauce

I always forget about the existence of slow cookers in the summer, since comfort food at this time of year comes more in the form of barbecue and no-bake, but this recipe makes pulling it out an absolute must!  If you think making your own tomato sauce is too time consuming, you need this recipe […]

Apple Crumble Quick Bread

Apple Crumble Quick Bread (with options for zucchini, carrot, and pear breads)

Before we talk about apple cinnamon loaves and perfect streusel topping, I need to know: is anyone else the proud owner of an independent, opinionated 5-year-old girl? I love my sweet daughter dearly, and for the most part she’s extremely easy-going, friendly, open and reasonable. But man, when she gets something into her head there […]

Saturday Sweets: Cookie Dough Truffle Bars

Cookie Dough Truffle Bars: No-Bake Eggless Cookie Dough topped with chocolate, the perfect way to satisfy any cookie dough craving!

Do you ever watch Dragon’s Den or Shark Tank?  I’m not really a TV watcher, but I love those shows.  I tend to think most things have already been invented, and then along comes someone with a brilliant, and usually simple, invention or solution of some sort that makes me think, “Now why didn’t I […]
