Baked Cake Donuts

I’ve been trying really hard not to be frivolous these days.  I’m trying not to need more ‘stuff’.  I feel like I have enough of that, you know?  But then I realized I don’t own a donut pan and all that went out the window. 😉 Somehow, I convinced myself I needed a donut pan. I blame Amazon. […]

Immune Booster Smoothie

It’s time.  It couldn’t last forever.  I knew it couldn’t.  I know I was getting cocky saying things like, “Not us, we’re doing so well!”  Stupid.  That was just stupid of me.  You’re probably thinking, why would you be so foolish to talk like that? And I  know! I get it.  It was just so glorious, […]

Red Velvet Waffles

Hey Guys! Happy Valentines Day!  My daughter was so excited about Valentine’s Day last night that she couldn’t go to sleep… for a while.  Panic started to set in when I realized she was expecting something special and was maybe building the day up in her mind more than I had.  Yikes!  I had already […]

It just took her famous granola […]

Baked French Toast

Baked French Toast.  Sweet, crunchy streusel topping, custardy bread, and tart blueberries… yum!  I resolve to make more baked french toast this year!   I know I’ve talked about my picky eater on the blog before.  On Christmas morning, when I pulled this out of the oven, my daughter asked what it was.  I said, […]

Apple Cinnamon Granola

My house smells amazing right now, thanks to this granola.  My house smells amazing… and my daughter just dumped a cup of pears, with a bit of juice no less, onto the floor.  And now she’s taking the remaining pears that were still on her tray, putting them into the cup, and then dumping them […]

Slow Cooker Apple Butter

Apple butter.  Smooth, delicious, sweet apple butter.  I was eating spoonfuls of this stuff.  Spoonfuls.  Just because I could.  Don’t judge, it’s that good. Apple picking leads only to one thing… Apples, apples, apples!  And more apples!  Which leads to… What do you do with all those apples?! I was thinking of all the delicious […]
