Spicy Jalapeno Meatballs and Waffles

Are you still looking for things to serve on Game Day? Look no further.  You’ve found what you are looking for. Waffles are so IN right now.  Not just for breakfast, you know – but for dinners and lunches and snacks as well. From the classic diner to the top gastropub to the finest restaurant, […]

Blackberry Cream Cheese French Toast Bake

Have you been to France?  I have.  Several times now. Know how many times I have had French Toast there? Not a single one. I’m not even sure French Toast is French.  I could Google it, but, alas, I am a lazy sort, and I prefer to simply eat it versus Google it. This particular […]

Dunkin’ Donuts Sweet Black Pepper Bacon Breakfast Sandwich

It’s not every day that Dunkin’ Donuts asks me to give one of their products a try.  I mean, I WISH they did, but at the same time, I’m also a hermit, and having to drive a couple of miles EVERYDAY would mean PANTS EVERYDAY, and we all know that isn’t happening. I mean, come […]

Toasted Coconut Ice Cream and Wok Wednesday Dumplings

Okay, stop the presses. Did you know there’s thing called Wok Wednesdays now? Yep…#WokWednesday.  To follow #TacoTuesday, which follows #MeatlessMonday. I really need to invent a day. Like #3OldPicklesAndCheesestickThursday, which, in our house, could literally be just about everyday, because I am the laziest dinner-maker I know.  I’m not sure what Rust must think of […]

This post is sponsored by Pirates Booty and Mom It Forward. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Have you ever eaten school lunch with your child? I mean – not you homeschool moms – you are in a league all your own, and wow, right on to you but that’s never going to be […]

Take and Bake Pizza…Papa Murphy’s

“Dear Susan, would you care to go have a pizza on us?” Pardon? Papa Murphy’s offered ME a night off from cooking, and wondered if I would be interested? Umm, yes? You see, I met the folks of Papa Murphy’s back in April, at a conference on the Pacific Coast.  Before moving to Texas, I […]

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 […]

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 […]

Easy Macaroni Salad…and Better Bakery

I am a huge fan of bready things.  Rolls. Pretzels. Burgers, calzones, subs, pizza.  If it’s yeasty, I want it. I love to make bread, but let’s be honest…it takes time. Lots of time.  The kneading, the rising. It’s devoting an entire Saturday to the kitchen when you really just want to nap and Netflix.  […]
