Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Crepes

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Crepes

I love fall time mostly for the food pumpkin in particular. Lets be honest fall time in Arizona is still in the 90’s so the weather is not the highlight of the time of the year! So thank goodness for pumpkin and fall flavors! When thinking of which recipe I would create as part of the Krusteaz Baker’s Dozen I couldn’t help but lean towards their pumpkin spice pumpkin pancake mix I have only made the pancakes before and have been wanting to mix things up! And one of the easiest ways to mix things up with their pancake mix is …

Old Fashion Onion Rings

Old Fashion Onion Rings

I absolutely love onion rings! When I am at a restaurant and I see onion rings on the menu I also have to scope around and see if I spot any old fashion onion rings! I love thick onion rings! When I thinking of a fun Father’s Day recipe with Krusteaz I was thinking about one of my favorite products of theirs. Their cornbread! My husband is OBSESSED with cornbread and we always have theirs on hand!  So thinking about my husband, Father’s Day, and Krusteaz I knew I needed to use the cornbread in a recipe to celebrate Father’s …

Key Lime Pie Waffles

Key Lime Pie Waffles

One of my favorite things about my food blog is creating new unique recipes using products that my family loves. That is why I always have so much fun creating recipes for Krusteaz. Especially when it is using their waffle or pancake mixes. When the challenge was to create a spring time breakfast recipe for the month of March all these green were on my mind. So I decided on key lime waffles. Then add a little streusel topping because lets be honest who doesn’t like streusel then top with a coconut syrup and these things knock it out of …

Happy New Years Eve! I am a huge believer in setting goals and writing them down to help you achieve them!

When I was trying to develop a recipe for Krusteaz to share for New Years I couldn’t help but think of something bite size! And believe it or not this is my first recipe …

Chocolate Chunk Peppermint Pie

Chocolate Chunk Peppermint Pie

I obviously have a hard time letting pie go after Thanksgiving. But as much as I enjoy a good slice of pie I enjoy a good slice of freezer pie even more. My kids feel the exact same way! I also love pairing a good freezer pie with a yummy cookie crust. And nothing pairs better in my mind than chocolate and peppermint to celebrate the winter holidays! I let my son be the first taste tester of this pie and he said it was the better after school snack ever! And is now going to be a staple at …

Pumpkin Crumb Doughnuts with Brown Butter Frosting

Pumpkin Crumb Doughnuts with Brown Butter Frosting

Let me just start with telling you one thing…these doughnuts are unreal! Like I had neighbors knocking on my door asking for these after I posted the “teaser” on Instagram. I even had 2 of my pregnant friends ask for my garage code to stop by and steal a couple. Then they text me and said that they were mad that they didn’t grab more! They really are amazing!  I am pretty sure it is because the main ingredient is one of my very favorite Krusteaz mixes! Their cinnamon swirl crumb cake mix is one of my favorites! I use it to make crumb …

Seattle, IFBC and Krusteaz

Seattle, IFBC and Krusteaz

One of my favorite parts of being involved in Krusteaz Baker’s Dozen is the annual trip to Seattle to visit the Krusteaz facility and the IFBC conference. The International Food Bloggers Conference (IFBC) was my very first conference that I ever went to. I was able to connect with other food bloggers, brands, and the other members of the Baker’s Dozen team! This year was no exception. I was able to meet more of the new 360 pr company members and spend time at the Krusteaz facility and at the conference. This year when I got there and had a …

Back to School with Krusteaz

Back to School with Krusteaz

Back to school is a glorious time of year! I love having my kids back on their schedules and I love being able to get more done during the day instead of having to drag all my children on errands during the day to try to accomplish everything that i need to get done. My little boy Remington started kindergarten this year and my oldest is in 2nd grade. My husband and I walked our boys to school for the first day they were excited and nervous. Then my husband headed to work and I took my little girl and …
