Strawberry on Top: Gender Reveal

Gender Reveal (18 of 24)

Baby Macaroni & Cheesecake is….A GIRL!!!! Last weekend we had a gender reveal party and it was so much fun! I wanted it to be fun but low maintenance for me, so we actually had it catered and a friend made the cake so I could focus on the decorations. And most of these decor […]

I actually made this punch for our Post Christmas Pajama Party and it was a HUGE hit! No one even opened the soft drinks, everyone just drank the punch. This punch is maybe the best punch I have ever had. I kid you not! It had such a great flavor and wasn’t too fizzy. So […]

Ok, I know I said I was done with the Pumpkin Recipes, but please indulge me for one more and then I’ll move on, for a little while at least!:) You know how a recipe might call for just a small amount of pumpkin and then you have half the can left over? This is […]

So this may not look like much. You may think, pretzels, big deal! What could be so great about a bowl of pretzels? That’s kind of what I thought when my mom told me about this new snack she made for a party.  Well then she made them for my birthday party and I was […]

Peach Lemonade

Vanilla Almond Iced Tea

So this may surprise you, but I had never made sweet tea before today.  I know, I know how can I be a Southerner and not have made a batch of freshly brewed iced tea? Honestly, I like my tea dripping with sweetness….like it’s from the deep South, ya’ll (said with lots of twang and […]

We served these delicious bite sized treats at our Super Bowl party. They were so good that not everybody got to try them because they were gobbled up. So if you are having a lot of guests, I would make a double batch! The dough is perfectly soft and tastes just like the pretzels you […]

This cake is Adam’s absolute favorite. My mom got this recipe from a friend and has been making it for years since. It is so moist and has such a simple flavor, but it is so delicious. Just give Adam this bundt cake & he is happy. It is so easy to make, too. All […]

Crowd Pleasing Cheese Ball

I got this wonderfully delicious cheeseball recipe from my mother-in-law. She is an amazing cook and this appetizer lives up to it’s name. I served it at my recipe swap last week and it was a huge hit! It’s creamy and also has a nice salty bite to it. Plus, all the ingredients were things […]
