Easter is this weekend, and I should be posting something cute, something loaded with sugar and popping with bright colors.
Heck, there are certain kitchen drawers in this house that the family flocks too. They are pure sugar! Peeps, Cadbury eggs and a myriad of other Easter treats are scattered in these two deep drawers. ugh.

Today, I simply bring you some dinner . . .



As one year ends and another begins, I want to thank you for sharing a little part of my life. This crazy baking blog is a happy space for me and getting to know you through comments and emails brightens my days. I appreciate the ideas you share, your subtle nudges for help and also those of you who just silently lurk behind the scenes. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your lives, in and out of my kitchen.
I’m excited for a fresh new year and the opportunity to put stacks of saved recipes to the test. Time always seems limited, but hopefully the occasional knock at your door will still be welcome.

My wish for each of you in 2016, is peace of mind and a happy heart!

I thought it would be fun for you to see which 10 recipes were the most popular for 2015.



It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. I know . . . I was quite the slacker over the holidays. I knew that with ALL the amazing blogs out there, we were all in good hands.

I’m a planner. I like all my ducks in a row. When one duck gets out of line or seems neglected, it’s time to take care of that duck for awhile!

A little about ducks . . and delicious Slow Cooker Taco Soups.


It’s hot.

When it’s hot, my appetite decreases and I find it hard to cook or bake. I purposely try to make “lighter” meals in the summertime, because my hubbie and I RUN together. Not always an easy thing to do. His stride & my stride are two different strides! His legs are at least 6″ longer, so I will just assume that I’m getting the better workout, since my legs stay with his legs. He could run me under the table . . . he just doesn’t dare!
