Raspberry Tarts

I have always been a huge tart fan! They are fun little things to make and even more fun to eat! Anything bite size is more fun to eat in my book! When I get sent a package of Krusteaz products to experiment with I always have tons of fun ideas with ways to jazz up their mixes. I usually try a few recipes but this time I knew exactly what I wanted to make when I got the box with raspberry bars in them. I had gone to my little sisters bridal shower a week before and had made …

The Perfect Pan Seared Steak

Have you ever been to a restaurant and ate a steak and wish you could cook one just as good when you are at home? I am pretty sure almost every single person has felt that way one time or another. There is nothing like biting into a flavorful steak that is juicy in the center and has just the right amount of a crust of seasoning all around the edges. Top that with a little garlic herb better and you have got yourself one delicious steak. I have been able to be apart of a very fun 15-course meal …

Loaded Cornmeal Waffles

“I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for P.A.N. Cornmeal. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.” Breakfast is probably my favorite meal to cook. And it definitely is my kids favorite meal to eat! Only problem is that sometimes we eat the same meal over and over again. We usually do sweet buttermilk waffles or pancakes. But then I gave these cornmeal savory pancakes a try! Exceeded my expectations for sure! They are a great savory with a little sweet breakfast that you need to add into …

Cast Iron Biscuits and Gravy

Biscuits and gravy are my favorite breakfast food ever. Like that is always the first thing I ask a waitress when I am at a breakfast place is if they have good and popular biscuits and gravy. If they say yes I give them a try. I am a bit of a biscuits and gravy snob. I am as picky as they come when it comes to this dish! My husband absolutely loves biscuits…gravy on them not so much! So he eats his with homemade jam and I go for the gravy. Slowly one by one my kids are coming …
