Cute Kitty and Puppy Cupcakes

My kiddo wanted something special to bring to school for her birthday and since she is my last kiddo I will basically make whatever if possible. I try to make something cool cause I am blessed to be a stay home momma that LOVES to bake and add some type of crafty edge and I […]

Hello Kitty Cake

My Kiddo turned 9 this week (sniff sniff, wipe tear). She is not your average little girl. I love that about her. She is so NOT a princess type and the only “Barbie” she likes are those weird Monster High dolls. She seriously said when she first saw them “now that’s my kinda doll”!  She […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Coffee Cake

Our latest thing with all the rhubarb growing like mad in the garden is to try to use it whenever possible.  I have trained my kiddo not to pick just one ripe one, but wait for a bunch to be ripe and pick a bunch then we will cook with it.  So the other day […]

Super Yummy mini meatloaf

minimeatloafSMALL

I love meat loaf and so does the family.  So since it seems like I have to make more and more cause we are eating it up like little piggies.  This cannot be good in the long run. So I decided to now make mini meat loafs (think more like large meatballs) Hopefully we can […]

Recipe: Tasty Turkey

Ok you have the big bird ready to go. First off get the bag of fun innards out of the inside of the bird. It is stuffed in there somewhere so look for it. I cannot tell you how many people first attempts at cooking a Thanksgiving bird left it in. I admit I did […]

Dinner Bento

I have not been making bentos like I used to we have been busy in our garden. But I made this Dinner Bento the other day for my kiddo to make up for the lack of bentos since school has been out. I need to step it up and at least give her a couple a […]

Peanut Butter & Jelly Roll Bento

How do you turn a yummy but boring PB & J into something new? Turn it into a jelly roll!  My kiddo loves when we make her sammis into rolls, pinwheels or jelly rolls ( all means the same). It makes it fun to look at all the layers and colors, swirled up into a […]

Gluten Free Tofu (Vegetarian) Pierogies

 Once in a while I get a bug to make traditional perogies by hand. The store bought ones will only tide me over for so long.  Plus with my little one having a gluten sensitivity I feel bad for her because she loved them so much. There are so many GF recipes for pasta so […]
