Bloody Eyeball Cupcakes

Happy Halloween!  If you’re looking for a fun and easy, but creepy Halloween treat, look no further! The Wilton candy eyeballs seem to be everywhere now… just staring at you!  This recipe uses the large ones that come in a 1 oz package.  You can make these cupcakes as easy…

Apple Butter BBQ Ribs

When it comes to crock pot cooking, I feel like there are two thoughts… 1)You LOVE it! or 2) Eh, it’s alright, but you haven’t had a whole lot of success with it, so is it really worth it?  I feel like there is a time and a place for…

EASY Pumpkin Doughnuts

More fall flavors!  When I say this is easy, I mean that this is super easy (which is why easy is in caps)!  The hardest thing about this recipe is getting a doughnut pan.  But look, it’s on Amazon, so it just got even easier!  If you already have one…

Spiced Peanut and Candy Corn Mix

It’s October, so time for some fall flavors! I know that fall technically started on September 22nd, but in Texas we were still having 90 degree days. It hasn’t cooled down THAT much, but last week we did finally start cooling down overnight and in the morning, so I can…

Espresso Caramel Bars

WARNING!!!  If you try these, you will eat more than you intended!  But, they’re so good!  There’s gooey caramel, rich chocolate, a hint of cinnamon, and a sprinkle of salt… you can’t get much better than that!  It’s the perfect combination of a candy bar and a cookie. I think this recipe…

Green Chile Double

Alright, I get to talk about Whataburger AND Hatch chiles!  🙂  The next Whataburger original that I’m recreating is their Green Chile Double burger.  This one is a bit different in that it doesn’t require any special sauces or anything.  AND, if you don’t have any Hatch chiles, never fear,…

Ricotta Meatballs

It was my daughter’s 3rd birthday recently and she requested “spaghetti” for her birthday dinner.  I put it in quotes because she doesn’t really care if it’s technically spaghetti, she just wants pasta with a red sauce.  When I asked her to pick out the pasta she wanted at the…

Corn & Chorizo Fritters

Hatch chile season! For those of you that do not know about this phenomenon, Hatch chiles come from Hatch, New Mexico, and are grown in the Hatch Valley. Unfortunately, the season for harvesting Hatch chiles is very short. So, we only get them for about 2 weeks in August. The…

Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings

This is a family favorite and it’s SO easy!  I know I’ve seen a few versions of this recipe in multiple places, but I first saw it on Thrifty Decor Chick.  It doesn’t look the prettiest, but when you’re looking for a simple and tasty meal, one that will warm…

Back to School!

I know that some of your kids have already gone back to school, but back-to-school for us is this coming Monday, August 22nd.  I think we have everything and now I just have to get it organized and ready for the kids to take to school on Monday!  My oldest son…
