It does take a little practice to get it perfect, but with the right recipe and few tips, you can have a super awesome pie crust that you made at home. I got this pie crust recipe from my husband’s grandma. I’m not sure where she got it… Here is what you need: 2 cups flour 1...

My grandma loves to write. I am pretty sure I inherited my love of writing from her. She has books and books full of things she has written. I have always admired her and her dedication to her passions. She is a mother of 7 and a grandmother of who knows how many. She always has a smile on her face, and food in the oven 🙂 One of my favorite memories of her is a time when I was at her house and she gave me breakfast in the morning. It was a bowl of cereal topped with a scoop of ice cream. Best breakfast ever. Why not have dessert first...

Are you ready to have your mind blown? I learned how to make a smoothie that is super smooth, but dairy free. No yogurt or milk of any kind. The secret? Add an avocado. If someone else already knew this, you are now dead to me for the next.. 30 seconds.Okay, now that that’s done with, I will share with you the recipe for this fantastic smoothie. Not only is it smooth and yummy, it’s good for you, too! You need spinach, an avocado, a lime, and a mango/pineapple/strawberry frozen fruit mix. So first, I put in about 2 handfuls...

I sort of made this up on accident. I was trying to make one thing and I thought it failed.. horribly. BUT! It turned out that what I actually made was really yummy. It didn’t look super pretty until I put whipped cream on top… then who cares what it looks like, right? As long as there is a cream topping, everything is going to be okay. No, but seriously, try it. It’s easy and yummy. You need a yellow cake mix and the ingredients listed there, and a box of raspberry jello and cool whip.Make the cake mix according to...

This recipe seriously took like 10 minutes to make. And, it’s magic. You’ll see why later. And, I had all the ingredients on hand (and I bet you do to.) Because it uses no eggs or butter and very little sugar, it was a popular dessert during World War II. I found it in Better Homes & Gardens New Cookbook. That cook book is my number one go-to cookbook. If you don’t have it… you should buy it. It’s only $10 on Amazon or something like that. I really think that I would survive without any other cook book...

I decided to make these because they look super yummy and because they remind me of Valentine’s Day, which is coming up pretty quick! I got the recipe from Sprinkle Bakes. If you haven’t made something like this before, I suggest watching the video she has up about it. It really helped me. I did do a few things differently though. Number one being that I used a cream cheese frosting. It isn’t as white as her butter cream filling, but it is delicious. Another thing I had to modify was that I didn’t have parchment...

These energy bites are delicious. I got the original idea from Give Me Some Oven, who got her recipe from Smashed Peas and Carrots, so these have gone around the web a bit, but I made my own modifications, as can you. They look way better on her site, but I love these so much that I had to post the recipe. They are my go-to preworkout snack. They are...
