Last week I ate this salad for 3 days straight. Some of those days I had it for lunch and dinner. I was obsessed with it and was sad when everything was gone and I couldn’t throw this salad together! The colors of the entire salad just made me feel happy too! I love when I am eating bright color foods that it makes me in a better happier mood for some reason! Please tell me I am not the only one! Also have fresh healthier ingredients always seems to help too! When taking pictures of meals that I make …

White Chocolate Strawberry Ghosts

White Chocolate Strawberry Ghosts

Some people consider chocolate covered strawberry only something you have on special occasions. I beg to defer. Chocolate covered strawberries should be apart of every week. They are super easy to make and even better to eat! There is only a few simple ingredients and you can transform this delicacy to a fun spooky ghosts that are perfect for halloween party or dinner. My family and I made these and had them at our annual pumpkin carving night. Then delivered some to some neighbors! My kids each get to pick 1 person to delivery their “treat plate” to and it …

Raspberries and Cream Pie

Raspberries and Cream Pie

This time of year I always start thinking of pies. I love making mini pies but rarely make a whole pie. Maybe because I like how little pies look and maybe it is so I can portion control and not sit and eat half of a pie by myself. But whatever it is pies are delicious. I make a similar pie to this one with blueberries. I have made both of these pies countless times. And each and every time they turning out yummy. Sometimes they are more set up then other times but on this occasion it came out …

Amazing French Toast with Buttermilk Syrup

Breakfast is everyones favorite meal in our house. Or should I say breakfast foods are everyones favorite meal in our house. It is the meal that when I make I know everyone will devour! So not only do we have fun making breakfast on the weekends together as a family, breakfast for dinner is a regular in our home. At dinner the other night my oldest son told me that a little neighbor girl said that she always wants to eat dinner at our house because we have fun things like french toast and waffles for dinner. I couldn’t help …

Peach Cobbler Bars

Peach Cobbler Bars

Summertime means cobbler in our home. We love making berry and peach cobbler. We love to top everything with ice cream! Only problem is trying to photograph something with ice cream on it when it is 110-120 degrees F outside! No matter what time of day it is it is hot! So very little ice cream photography happens. These bars are very yummy with just the frosting on it. It makes them way more portable to gatherings or delivering treats to neighbors, friends, or family. So don’t feel like these HAVE to have ice cream on them to be yummy. But if you can top them with ice …

Grilled Peach and Berry Salad

Grilled Peach and Berry Salad

This pregnancy I have been on a huge salad kick! I eat it almost daily for lunch and there is a salad somehow involved in our dinner at least 4 times a week. I have my favorites and my go-to’s but I am always trying to add some type of variety to them. This salad is usually my strawberry salad. But when I picked up a 30 lb box of freshly grown peaches I knew just what to do with them. That same day I also picked up a huge flat of raspberries. So I decided to throw those in …

Raspberry Tarts

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 …
