Cinnamon Roll Pie Crust

Since Thanksgiving is around the corner and many households across the country will be baking pies this year, why not put a twist on a regular pie crust.  Some people prefer to make their own (click HERE for a pie crust recipe), while others prefer to skip the work and just buy store-bought pie crusts….

Beet Pastry Dough

“How do you get the party started? With a fat beet.”  (insert your laughter here) Ahhh beets! Who isn’t in love with this nutritious veggie? To be honest I rarely buy beets. Why? Because I don’t know what the heck to do with them! I happened to have some just sitting in my fridge for…

Merry Christmas!

Today is Christmas!   Wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday with your loved ones!  Be thankful for what you have instead of complaining about what you don’t. Some of you may not know I spent my last Christmas in a hotel due to our house catching on fire (read and see pictures HERE).  It…

Homemade Apple Pie

I wish I had a recipe for this but I don’t.  Truth is this is the first time EVER I have made a pie from scratch. From the crust to the filling everything was homemade.  Actually no one cooked in my family this year, we opted for catering at our favorite restaurant.  My son has…

Pumpkin Patch & Chocolate Cat Mug Cake

Today was a good day because it was my son and I’s first time at a pumpkin patch! This year we decide he had to be Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates, so we threw on his costume and packed the family in the car and headed off to the local church for a…
