Molasses Crinkles

These sweet and spicy cookies are perfect for the holidays to serve at home or give as gifts. I was greatly surprised when my boys requested these over and over again since they are not the spice in my dessert and snacks, kind of kids.

Skillet Buttermilk Cornbread

This is my go to cornbread recipe I make for my Chicken and Cornbread Dressing along with chili and soup.  It's so easy, very light and moist!  I always make cornbread in my cast iron skillet just like my precious Mama and Grandmas did.  It just tastes better!

Homemade Butterfingers

Why.  Oh, Why? Did it take so long for me to run across this recipe?  Really?!  Why?!  I always buy candy corn around Halloween except that one year I couldn't find any.  WAIT!  Now I know why!  Y'all were hoarding the candy corn, weren't you?!  Well, this year, watch out...I'll be the hoarder!  ~Smile and snicker as I take another bite of  Homemade Butterfingers!~

Apple Cider Bubble Bread

I love using frozen bread dough to make appetizers, snacks, desserts and even meals!  Rhodes Brown-N-Serve White Dinner Rolls is the only one I use.  Don't you just love using them?  So convenient to use, the aroma and taste!  LOVE!   I wanted to make something for my boys and put half a bag of rolls. in a pan, in the refrigerator to thaw while I went shopping.  I returned home with a new apple cider caramel drink mix, by Alpine.  Have you tried this?  It is so good!  My thoughts then turned to the dough in the fridge.  I knew what I would make...Apple Cider Bubble Bread!  
(This is not a sponsored post..I just love this drink mix and rolls!)

Strawberry Angel Cake w/Blueberry Compote

Happy 4th of July!  Do you have amazing plans?  We are going to the splash park on the beach, with dear friends to watch the sunrise, play, and eat.  We are hoping to get there, have fun and snack, before the rush comes later in the day.  Perhaps, we will see fireworks on the Inter Coastal Waterway at night.  Whatever your plans, I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating with family and dear friends, making memories that last a lifetime.

My Red, White and Blueberry dessert for tomorrow!

Sweet Potato Puffs

Oh, do I have a favorite holiday sweet potato dish for you!  Dessert or side, you decide.  It's an old one but a great one!  Cook as many sweet potatoes as you wish.  Sweeten to your taste with either brown or regular sugar.  Add vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, nuts....whatever you want to make it your own.  There really isn't a set amount of anything.   It's your old sweet potato casserole rolled up in a ball with the marshmallows hiding inside!!!

Picture Tiles

I always take a LOT of pictures.  And, I do mean a LOT!  There is a camera with me 99% of the time.  When I go out the door I grab my camera before I do my phone, which is does nothing except help me locate my hubby while we shop, btw.  At any given time there is a camera, if not two, in my purse, pocket or hand.  ~smile~  It is only natural, then, for me to give gifts of pictures for all occasions.  Whether it is DVD's for the teachers at the end of school or my last project..picture tiles.  They can be placed on an easel on your desk, used as coasters and I'm certain I can find a way to hang them on the wall.  I made these for an end of the year present for my twins pre-k teachers.   I'm going to make them again for hubby as a gift for Father's Day along with a picture of our oldest son.  You can have your child draw or write something to put on the tiles instead of, or in addition to, the pictures.  These are so very easy to do and can be made in no time at all.  Run to Lowes to pick up some tiles and hurry back to make these adorable gifts in time for Sunday.  Have fun!  <3 and hugs!


Picture Tiles

tiles..any size you want
mod podge
foam paint brush
spray can of clear acrylic sealant that is moisture proof if using for coasters

Pick out your precious pictures and trim to fit your tiles.

Heart Marshmallow Pops

One of the twins wanted to do something by himself.  We went to the store and he picked out the heart shaped marshmallow and sprinkles.   Came home and started making his treats.  We'll make these for their classes on Valentine's Day.  <3 and hugs!
Heart Marshmallow Pops

heart marshmallows
white chocolate chips or almond bark
sprinkles
pop sticks
I melted almond bark for this picture.  (If using white chocolate chips, melt according to directions.) Dipped the pop stick the melted candy and put it in the marshmallow.  He added the melted candy on with a butter knife.  <3

 Sprinkles came next. <3

 And....more sprinkles!  <3

 He still needed more!  <3 



His twin finally got a bite!  <3
