Strawberry on Top

Mother's Day 2

For Mother's Day Weekend we had lots of fun family time. We ate a lot and went to downtown Chattanooga and walked around and just spent lots of time together. We also let Sophie experience "playing tennis" for the first time. She absolutely loved it!! She chased the ball all around and loved watching us hit the ball too. Hopefully this is the first of many many family tennis outings! I … Read More

Homemade Hawaiian Sweet Rolls

Hawaiian Sweet Rolls (2 of 3)

I have always loved Hawaiian Rolls! Lately we've been getting them quite often and using them for sandwiches and also as dinner rolls too. As often as we buy them, I thought I better try my hand at making them at home to save a little bit on our grocery budget. These Homemade Hawaiian Sweet Rolls were just as good as the store bought version! So fluffy and slightly sweet, these are great by … Read More

Twix Dip

Twix Dip  (2 of 3)

Our neighbors gave us a huge box of Twix Bars at Christmas that they weren't going to use and I've been wanting to bake with them for a while. Also, am I the only one that hoards Christmas candy and waits to use it until it's almost stale?!

My mom gave me a pint of fresh strawberries from a local Mennonite farm yesterday. The are so good that I decided we would just eat them instead of baking with them.

This Creamy Dreamy Fruit Dip turned out fabulously! It's everything the name … Read More

Creamy Baked Ziti

A friend of mine recently had a baby and I was planning to take her dinner. I wanted to try something different than I normally take and I thought baked ziti would work perfectly and travel well. I divided this recipe and baked it in two 8x8 dishes so that we could have some for dinner also. This was so creamy, comforting, and delicious! It was super easy to prepare and I bet you could even … Read More
