Low Calorie Blueberry Ginger Ale

Blueberry Ginger Ale. I’m not sure why I didn’t think of this sooner, but perhaps it’s because I lived in Virginia, versus Texas. Why should that matter? It does.  It really, really does. You see, in March, in southern Texas?  It was in the 90s. Not the COOL 90s, like, with Nirvana and The DMB, […]

Chef Worthy Kitchen on a Budget

If you know me at all, you know I love a good looking, hard working kitchen. In my house in Virginia, I am lucky enough to say that I have the best of the best – a commercial style range (48 inches!), huge fan, armoire refrigerator, refrigerator drawers in my cabinets, a super quiet dishwasher, […]

Cinnamon Apple Pie Pancakes

Two of my favorite things? Breakfast and dessert. If you think about it, breakfast foods are really pretty dessert-like anyway…pancakes, muffins, Danishes, croissants, French toast…they’re all sweet and disguised as a nutritious breakfast. Breakfast is smart, kids. For my March contribution to the world of Krusteaz, I decided to just be forthright and admit – […]

Easy Easter Cupcakes–Two Ways

I used to teach a lot of classes – cake decorating, cookie decorating, cupcake decorating.  It was fun, for sure, especially teaching busy moms that they, too, could make really fanciful things using products that were ready to go. For example, Pillsbury. Pillsbury makes a huge assortment of products that make a busy parent’s life […]

Peanut Butter Breakfasts

When you think peanut butter, do you automatically think dessert (after sandwich, that is?)? I kind of do. It’s rich, it’s sweet. It goes great in brownies or ice cream. But peanut butter can really be for ANY meal. Sure, you can simply spread it on a piece of bread, add a little jelly, and […]

Peanut Butter and Salted Caramel Brownies

Sometimes things go together that maybe you hadn’t thought of going together. Like that one couple you know, who are both wonderful and charming on their own, but you never really saw being a THING. Perhaps she was just a little too smart, or he just a little too handsome. But then they met. And […]

Banana Pudding Pancakes

Seriously…Banana Pudding. My mom and my Aunt Sue both make the best Banana Pudding.  Personally, I have never attempted it, because I fear.  I fear mine will not be near what theirs is – lush, sweet, and bursting with flavor and childhood giddiness.   Instead, I wait for potlucks, Thanksgiving, the Fourth of July, and […]

Mohawk Flooring–The Downstairs Install

Time for an update, everyone. The Mohawk Flooring? All of the laminate and carpeting I struggled with picking out? It came.   Before we ordered all of it, though, Jimmie, the owner of Floored in Christiansburg, VA, came over to the house to make sure everything (and I do mean everything) was measured perfectly. He […]

Mixed Red Berry Pancake Muffins

I should bake and cook with berries more.  I don’t know why I don’t…they are so full of flavor and such vibrant little morsels of goodness.  We used to have a great row of raspberry bushes behind our house…the berries were huge and the seeds were small…and they tasted just like heaven.  I would have […]
