“Crowd Pleasing” Rice Pudding

I love recipes from years ago that use such simple ingredients. I love to follow the recipes and think about the women who were making it back then. So much has changed, but so little has changed.

Colonial Pumpkin Pie

Oh man. This colonial pumpkin pie was rich and delicious. You must put this on your menu for Thanksgiving Day. I did happen to whip up some homemade cinnamon whipped cream and spread it all over the top of the pie. That is a must as well! 

Pumpkin Muffins

I regularly make Whole Wheat Banana Muffins. They are healthy and delicious. We eat them for breakfast and can easily pack them in the lunchbox for school. But when the season of fall arrives I like to switch them up a bit and make Whole Wheat Pumpkin Muffins. We all love them just as much as the banana muffins and it gives us all the feelings of fall.

I have been waiting to get my hands on my mom’s old cookbook. It was in storage for a couple of years while they got settled here in Florida. Now that I have it, I may not give it back.

Whole Wheat Banana Muffins

I have two boys that are growing fast and are always hungry. I’m constantly looking for healthy snacks and meals to fill their bellies up so they stop eating! These ingredients are simple and clean! I usually freeze them for the week and pull out a few each day.

Dump Cake

Summer always makes me think of pie. Two of my favorites are, Sweet Cherry Pie and Strawberry Apple Pie. I was looking for inspiration on Pinterest one day and came across Dump Cakes. Don’t let the name discourage you from making this. Knowing that I can dump ingredients in a bowl, bake it and serve a delicious, sweet dessert makes me love it even more.

Strawberries and Cream

As a kid I was a very picky eater. I didn’t really like much and tortured my poor parents. Breakfast was a challenge. My sisters always laugh that my mom would go in the fridge and ask me for an hour, “Do you want this, how about this?” Well, in the morning if I didn’t want anything else she would cut up strawberries and bananas and cover them in a bowl with half and half. And it was delicious.

Sweet Cherry 🍒 Pie 🥧

Cherries are one of my favorite fruits. Right now they are in season and so good. We are having Sunday dinner at my parent’s place and I said I’d bring dessert. I instantly thought of cherry pie.

Acai Bowl

It is a new year and we all are trying to shed some pounds from enjoying sweet treats like Aunt June’s Cream Cheese Cookies. These Acai bowls are perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dessert! They are filling, refreshing and healthy!

Cinnamon Whipped Cream

Whipped cream is one of those things that is so easy to whip up, but makes a big statement.  It’s almost as easy as opening a tub of cool whip.  And oh so much better.
