Low Sugar Pumpkin Bread

Low Sugar Pumpkin Bread

So I love a good pumpkin bread. I’ve wanted to make one for a few weeks now and I’m assuming our 60 degree and overcast weather whipped me into action. The thing with most pumpkin breads is how much sugar they contain. I decided to […]

Pasta Aglio e Olio

Pasta Aglio e Olio

First things first (I’m the realist…) I’m going to confess something to you – I am not Italian. There is zero Italian found within my bloodline. And I’m married to a freckly-blonde-haired-blue-eyed German. So there’s no possible way I can even begin to scratch the […]

I am so excited about today’s post.  As the school year was coming to a close, I was taking a mental break one evening and zoning out to the million and a half education pins on Pinterest.  You know, pinning for the start of the […]

Homemade Freezer Lunches (Lean Cuisines)

First I am going to come right out and say something – I do not have a problem with Lean Cuisines and their other competitors. Do some of them taste hideously gross to me? Yes. With that said, there are actually a few varieties that […]

“Easy Peasy” Cheesecake Cups

“Easy Peasy” Cheesecake Cups

Do you love your husband? I totally love mine. Sure. He drives me crazy. And I annoy the crap out of him. He’s an amazing husband, dad, and marine. (He’s easy on the eyes, too.) He has an amazing personality and is probably the funniest […]

Tandy Cake Recipe

Growing up in Pennsylvania you become accustomed to certain “treats.” If you run into someone specifically from Central PA (the REAL Central PA – not the counties that try to claim it…) you will most certainly be able to strike up a conversation about these […]
