Krusteaz Baker’s Dozen

One of my favorite things that I get to do as a food blogger is to work with brands and collaborate to make fun recipes. I love being able to experiment with new products that I have not yet tried before! Some times products work for my family and sometimes they do not. And I will have to admit when I do work with brands most of the time my 1st recipe that I create is not the recipe that I end up sharing with you all. I try a couple and share my favorite! Lots of experimenting, tweaking and …

Vanilla Bean Creme Brûlée

Creme Brûlée is my favorite dessert in the whole world. Like honestly it is! Whenever I go to a restaurant and they have it I have to order it no matter how stuffed that I am. My mom taught me how to make creme brûlée. She pretty much has taught me almost everything I know about cooking so I should say that about every recipe. But this one especially. So if you are a creme brûlée lover like myself you have got to give this recipe a try!  Vanilla Bean Creme Brûlée  2 cups heavy cream 1/2 vanilla bean, split …

Cajun Trout

The other night it was my husband’s birthday and I wanted to take him some place extra special. I will admit before my husband met me he did not know or appreciate good food. That all changed when he married into my family. My family thrives on good food. We love cooking good food and we love going to tastey new restaurants and enjoying good food! So my husband and I ventured out to Scottsdale and went to Prado at the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia. We were blown away by their amazing costumer service. Their staff made …

Watermelon Cooler

Watermelon and summer go hand in hand in our home! My kids go through about a watermelon a week in the summertime. I almost always have one in our home for days when my kids are playing in the water or swimming that day. Just a easy and refreshing snack for them!  It is the last week of school for my kids and the weather has just been amazing! So that only means one thing…more time to spend outside before the dreaded summer heat hits! Our grill is about to hit its peak where we spend a lot of our …

Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce

Slow cookers should be a staple in every single home. They make the hard and busy days easier. And the making cooking easier when you want it to be! I am not going to lie I have used plenty of jars of spaghetti sauce in my life time. They are cheap and easy. But with this recipe it is almost as easy as opening a jar of spaghetti sauce and pouring it over noodles. It just takes a little more prep because it does take time to simmer in the crockpot. But it will be worth it! Slow Cooker Spaghetti …

Lemonade on a Front Porch

There is nothing more relaxing then sitting on a porch sipping on a refreshing drink while your kids play outside with their friends! This time of year in Arizona all the neighborhood kids are roaming the streets. Give it a month or two and no one will be found out front and will have migrated to the back yard for the swimming pool! But for now I am so excited to enjoy this spring time weather. A few months ago my flower beds were full of just dirt and our patio was empty. When I heard about a Wayfair campaign …

Easy Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Tacos

Buffalo Sauce is my weakness. I love it so so much. Whenever I order wings or chicken strips anywhere I have to ask for an extra side of buffalo sauce. I am also pretty picky when it comes to the flavor of different buffalo sauces. I have tried quite the variety of different brands. I would have to say that franks is my favorite brand for buffalo sauce….for now that is!  My little girl and my boys even love to just eat this chicken plain. I try not to make it too spicy so that the whole family can enjoy …

Butterfinger Peanut Butter Mini Cookies

Peanut butter and Chocolate is always a good idea in my book. These type of cookies have always been a family favorite. My younger brother used to ask my mom all the time to make these cookies for him. And whenever I was at my moms house after I had kids my oldest son always got so excited when Nana made these cookies. He would take home a little plate home and enjoy them that night and then save some for the next day to take to school as his snack. I feel like recently the candy companies have really been …

Lego Love and a Lego Birthday Party

Legos are every moms dream. Well at least they are my dream toy! I was having a conversation with my cousin the other day and she asked me how I do it all with two crazy young, high energy boys at home. I told her one word…legos. My sons went from only sword fighting and throwing axes and shooting nerf guns and bow and arrows at each other to sitting down together and playing legos quietly. Legos allow my sons to be creative and use their imagination. Two things that I value highly in my home. Although my boys are …
