Key Lime and Coconut White Chocolate Scones

They say that friends are the family you choose for yourself. When I started blogging, I never anticipated how much it would change my life. It’s given me drive, and confidence, and made me a part of the most supportive community, made up of people from all over the world. Liz from That Skinny Chick […]

Raspberry Lime Muffins

I sometimes fantasize about being able to travel around the world eating at famous bakeries and chocolatiers. Of course in my fantasy I wouldn’t gain any weight doing this either! See it all has to do with muffins. Okay, maybe not just muffins, but they certainly rank at the top of the list for me […]

Easy Biscuit Doughnuts

The day after Christmas often comes as a bit of a let down… The anticipation and magic of the big day is over, and suddenly you’re buried under a pile of torn wrapping paper and needing a bottle of aspirin. I think it’s even worse for the kids, so to make the morning after not […]

Petite Lemon Raspberry Scones

I don’t know about you but Christmas morning is an all out circus in my house, with the opening act starting WAY too early for my taste! Honestly, anything before noon is a little too early for my taste, but since I seem to be in the minority on this planet… My little piglets are […]

Pumpkin Muffins with Cream Cheese Frosting and Candied Bacon Sprinkles

If you are already rolling your eyes thinking I have lost my mind, then you clearly are new around here! I tend to wax poetic about my love of bacon from time to time. Or more often… It’s one of my all time favorite, if you were stuck on a desert island and could only […]

Rinse & Repeat: Strawberry Rhubarb Applesauce Muffins

I’m not sure how it’s possible, but it just seems like there is NEVER enough time! I realized last night that my husband has been deployed for almost two months, and I have no idea where the time has gone. I had all these great plans of sorting through the attic while he was gone […]

Bacon and Chive Scones

Some girls are really into diamonds and other lavish gifts. Me – not so much. They’re nice, but if you really want to get on my good side, I like imported chocolate and a BIG slab of good quality smoked bacon. A nice bottle of wine wouldn’t go amiss either. I’m easy. And I’m deadly […]

Light and Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits

Buttermilk Biscuits Yield: 10 biscuits 2 c. flour + more for board 3 tbs. sugar 3 tsp. baking powder ¾ tsp. salt ½ c. cold, unsalted butter ¾ […]

Chocolate Chunk Brownie Muffins

You ever have one of those days where it just feels like everything goes wrong?  Life just hands you a little more than you can handle, or maybe just a little more than you want to handle, and you just want to throw in the towel, even if only for a little while? Today was […]

Meyer Lemon Strawberry Shortcake

If you were reading along last week, you know I bought 9 pounds of strawberries to freeze for all my baking.  In which case, you should have seen this post coming a mile away! Not only are strawberries currently in season, but so is just about anything citrus.  Meyer lemons are one of my favorites, […]
