Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins

PB Choc Chip Muffins (3 of 4)

Thank you all so much for your sweet comments about Sophie and for your wishes to feel better! I am feeling much better, thankfully! I have gotten into a bit of a cooking/baking rut after not cooking much the past couple of weeks. I decided to bust out of that and bake some muffins for Adam's co-workers. The first recipe I tried was a big fail and ended up in the trash.  Not the best way to … Read More

BBQ Chicken Pizza Soup

BBQ Chicken Soup (3 of 3)

So I know this may sound like a bazaar soup, but it truly has all the flavors of a bbq chicken pizza, especially topped with a little cheese! This was a super easy weeknight meal and Adam really loved it! I loved that it mostly contained pantry staples too, so it's a great meal if you've forgotten to go to the store. Definitely a fun twist on traditional soup to warm you up during this polar … Read More

Red Velvet Rice Krispie Treats

Red Velvet Krispy Treats (5 of 5)

So I have one more red velvet recipe for you! This one is super quick & easy to put together and will definitely be a crowd pleaser! The best part is it's like a cross between a rice krispie & a cake since it has frosting sandwiched in between! The subtle hint of the red velvet paired with the buttercream made these an awesome dessert! And I was strong and only had one little sliver … Read More

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Red Velvet Cupcakes (7 of 7)

I love love love red velvet! It's almost always my flavor of choice if there's an option: frozen yogurt, donuts, cookies, cakes, you name it! I was brainstorming and researching ideas to share with you for Valentine's Day and it dawned on me that I had never shared a basic recipe for red velvet cake or cupcakes, so I knew I had to! No these are not on my eating plan to lose the baby weight, … Read More

Copycat Publix Buttercream Frosting

Copycat Publix Buttercream

If you've never had Publix Buttercream Frosting, you are missing out! But never fear, you can make your own version at home! This frosting is so smooth & fluffy and not grainy at all.  It's great for topping cakes or cupcakes, sandwiched between two cookies or ya know, just diving in with a great big spoon!! While not exact, this does taste very close to the Publix version. I will have a … Read More

Crock Pot Sweet & Sticky Chicken

As is most of the country, we are in a deep freeze here in the south. I'm so thankful and blessed that we weren't stuck out in the snow! I feel so bad for all those that were stranded!! Since it was snowing outside, I wanted some comfort food, but I didn't want it to be time intensive so we could get out and enjoy the snow.  This definitely fit the bill! It's just what the name says, sweet … Read More
