6-Week Raisin Bran Muffins

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Life has a way of taking over at times, doesn’t it? During the last two months, our family’s lives have been in a whirlwind of happenings. It’s been one thing after the other. We sold our house, moved to the bordering county, my husband accepted a new job (14 hours away from home) and started [...]

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Growing up, my family always went to my uncle’s house for breakfast on Christmas morning. It was one of my favorite times of the season, a time when we could go show off all of our new toys from Santa while enjoying time spent with family and diving into a delicious omelet made just to [...]

Mae Mae’s Christmas Ambrosia

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

This is another one of those recipes that floods me with memories of my sweet grandmother, Mae Mae. When thinking of Mae Mae and the many things she always made at Christmas time, you can’t leave this recipe out. I remember boxes of fruit being at her house, but I don’t remember where they came [...]

Gingerbread Apple Streusel Coffee Cake

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

I am a little embarrassed to admit it, but last year during the Christmas season I went a little nuts. I bought six packages of gingerbread cookie mix because they only sell them during Christmas season, and well…what if I get the hankering for a gingerbread cookie in July? I personally have never made gingerbread cookies [...]

Cheese Grits

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Are you guys making your list of all the things you want to make for Christmas yet? I am! Then again, that’s probably no surprise to all of you. I usually do the same thing every year for breakfast on Christmas morning, homemade cinnamon rolls and sausage balls. My kids love it, it’s easy, and [...]

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

I had hopes of making a pumpkin roll sometime during the Thanksgiving holidays, but time just got away from me. November was such a crazy busy month that I never got a chance to make it and I was so disappointed! I know it’s almost December and it’s time for Christmas goodies and all kinds [...]

Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

Monday, November 28th, 2011

I am so ready for Christmas that I just don’t know what to do! My family has been through so many trials and tribulations this year that I have made a promise to myself to enjoy this Christmas season as much as possible, no matter how tough things are. This is a time for family [...]

Double Chocolate Buttermilk Muffins

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Please forgive me, but I’m going to do it again. I’m passing you all another muffin recipe that is pretty much just an excuse to eat dessert for breakfast. Chocolate is good for you, though, right? At least that’s what I’ve read (I throw away the magazines that say otherwise, don’t you?). Those are the kind [...]

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

If you follow my blog regularly you may remember reading about our family’s many trips to Boston for my son’s surgeries (he’s had 18 of them now). While he is in the hospital, we have very limited access to restaurants. There are a few right around the hospital, and of course the cafeteria inside the [...]

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Friday, September 30th, 2011

Ahhhh, finally fall! Although fall in Mississippi simply means we aren’t in the triple digit temps anymore. I’d love it if it would cool down even more than it already has, around 72 all day everyday would be about perfect for me. Seeing as how that’s not going to happen though (*sigh*), I choose to [...]
