Brown Sugar Streusel Coffee Cake

I have made this Brown Sugar Streusel Coffee Cake many times and even posted a picture on my facebook page.  Did I write the recipe down?  No!  Don't ask me why.  That tends to happen a lot.  I start something then have to stop....get to busy and totally forget to return and finish what I was doing to begin with.  You do know what I am talking about, don't you?

Snack recipes: White Chocolate Coconut Cream Dip and Cool Whip Cookies

Can you believe summer is over?  It seems like just yesterday, my boys were saying goodbye to their classmates and hello to summer.  In a blink of an eye, summer is gone and school has started once again.  My boys are excited to see their teaches, meet new friends and catch up with classmates they had not seen over the summer.  It's time to get back into the routine of things and part of mine is feeding my boys yummy snacks when they get home from school.

Cinnamon Roll Bread

I'm making this Cinnamon Roll Bread for the twins' birthday breakfast.  It is such a fun way to eat cinnamon rolls.....slice and pull apart!  And, just perfect for this morning when we are running around getting ready for their birthday party!  So much to do...so much to do!

Candy Popcorn

I didn't find out until a day ago, that my 5th grader is having a Valentine's Day party!   They have a field trip on Friday, Valentine's Day, that and I just assumed 5th graders didn't celebrate since my son thinks it is babyish to exchange cards.  Awww, where does the time go?  And, just when did my son think he is too old to celebrate?!  As a last minute contribution, I am making Candy Popcorn.  Made with flavored gelatin, it is a breeze to put together, taking literally minutes to make.  It is so colorful and full of flavor, certain to be welcomed by his friends when they open their treat bags.

Blueberry Muffins

I found this simple Blueberry Muffin recipe in an old recipe book my precious grandma gave me in 1993. Wow!  When read aloud, that sounds like an eternity ago!  I suddenly feel antiquated....  These muffins are easy to whip up,  slightly sweet, light, and full of blueberries.  Perfect for breakfast on the go, after school snack or weekend brunch.

Black Bean Salsa

Who doesn't love snacking?  I know we do and we do it often!  There is just something about eating with hands. Hand reaches to chip, to salsa and dip, to veggies (a least one son's hand does) to hungry mouths that await anxiously.  Snack, snack, smack!  Yes, that was my boys! They tend to get a little overzealous with chips and snacks and anything they can make a loud, mouthy sound with.  I love my boys..but let's keep it quiet, okay?  This lip smacking Black Bean Salsa was just another noise in the bowl app, awaiting my hungry boys.  I adapted the recipe from a can of Bush's Best Black Beans!

Pumpkin Spice Dip with Maple Cinnamon Pumpkin Spice Waffle Dippers

I have mentioned it before and I'll say it again...I do not like pumpkin pie.  Yes, I know what you are thinking and just imagine I may nbe the only person that doesn't like it!  They was always made by my precious Mama and Grandma every holiday.  A huge dollop of cream on top and my, oh my, dear Daddy was a happy man!  I on the other hand, never inherited the love of pumpkin pie.  I do love pumpkin bread, cookies, muffins and now, this dip.  Just don't give me a slice Mama's pumpkin pie or I'll have to hurt feeling and not eat it. Check out this recipe on The Great Eggo Waffle Off!

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!~

philly cream cheese

You love saving money, don’t you?  Yes, I knew you would.  I love to clip coupons and this .50 Philadelphia Cream Cheese coupon  ( for a 2 pack no less!) is a fantastic one to use at Walmart.   The two pack of philly cream cheese is a great price already and even more so when paired with the coupon.  Click, print and save.  And then, do it all over again.  Yes, you can print two coupons!  I did!  To view the digital coupon, you must be within a 5 mile radius of Walmart.  Not a big deal, you were going shopping anyway, right?

Caramel Apple Bran Muffins

Aw, Fall.  I love the crisp air.  Freshly picked apples and pumpkins, gathered nuts for cooking and snacking on.  Love it!  I find myself baking a lot more than usual.  Can you imagine that?  I couldn't possible bake more than last month but yeah, I have!  I love it!

My boys have eaten more muffins in the last 3 weeks than they have ever eaten before!   The Pumpkin Muffins are being made at least twice a week at our house.  I think we are getting a little burnt out on them.  There are just so many days/weeks I can eat Pumpkin Muffins.  ~smile~  I decided to make a new muffin recipe and this one is a hit!  Please note, my muffins rose in the oven then went down again.  I don't know if this is because I let them sit too long or if bran muffins don't rise well.  If you know, please leave me a comment. Let me know how yours turn out.   Heck, I'd love for you to leave me a comment anyway.  ~smile~  Now...what shall I make next?

Homemade Instant Oatmeal

We love oatmeal at our house yet each boy wants their's a bit different.  I've seen this on the internet for some time now and I decided to make my own instant oatmeal so they can each have their own favorite.   Brown or regular sugar, sugar substitute, cinnamon, nuts, coconut, chocolate chips...the possibilities are endless! Putting the Instant Oatmeal in jars so they can be easily accessed and used in the desired amounts, has been great.   I'm cold and ready to make some Instant Oatmeal come on and join me.

We love popsicles!  It doesn't matter if it is summer or winter, if they are here, we shall eat them!  I just found this one in the back of the freezer and I am so happy I did.  One of the twins and I had a yummy suprise treat.    Enjoy these frozen treats of summer anytime of the year.  They will make you smile...I promise.  Love and hugs!

Sour Raisins


I always eat lunch with my boys when I volunteer at school. The boys take their lunches but like to go through the lunch line to get a cold milk and another fruit if it strikes their fancy. I walked through the line with my twins and saw that one of the fruit choices for the day was sour raisins. I had never heard of them before, have you? Without hesitation, both of them grabbed the little boxes of sour dried fruit. Their little fingers could not wait to open and taste the new fruit choice! The sour raisins were liked. I came home and immediately made my version of them. They twins loved them.

Carrot Cake

I LOVE Carrot Cake!!  I think it is one of my all time favorite cakes.  While I was growing up my Beloved Aunt Ree Ree would always bake our favorite cake on our birthday.  That and a dollar or two in a card were treasured.  We were able to eat the first slice and shared the rest with pleasure.  Lately, I have been wanting one and just haven't been able to make one.  Each time I go to the fridge, I find the mini horses have eaten all the carrots.  I blame my hubby for that but no worries..the minis love carrots, too.

I watched The Pioneer Woman this morning and was inspired to make Sloppy Joe Hoagies and a Carrot Cake.  I wanted to make the Chocolate Dipped Granola Bars but didn't have time.  Perhaps in a day or two when the cake is gone.  The cake is an easy recipe to make.  It's one I have made for many, many, many, many years, yes, that long.  I usually make a little icing.  My boys and I eat it as is.  Hubby likes the icing so we let him eat it all if he wants.  Enjoy!

This recipe can also be found here.

Sloppy Joe Hoagies

I didn't know what I wanted to fix for supper tonight until I watched Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman.  Don't you just love her?  I do!  She made sloppy joes.  I have been meaning to make them for a while now and tonight seemed like a great time!  These are super simple and easy to make.  If you make your's like your Mama did, they probably taste about the same.  This is a basic recipe.  Feel free to grate or dice other veggies in also.  I was going to add a tomato that looked lonely on my counter but forgot about it while I was getting out some fall decorations.  It's a great way to sneak them in without being caught.  ~smile~  I put the sloppy joe mixture in a hoagie roll, it was actually a potato roll because that is what I had,  so it would be easier for my boys to eat.   Most of it actually made it to their hungry little mouths instead of on the plate.  Enjoy!

Dark Chocolate Bean Cake with Raspberry Sauce

I am always looking for new recipes to make.  Especially ones I can sneak something healthy into like veggies or beans.  This time I used beans and nobody was the wiser.  It has a slightly different texture but not in a bad way.  It is a thin cake and will be eaten in no time at all.  I made this last night and it is already gone.  Make it for your family and don't tell them what the secret ingredient is.  You'll smile as they eat it and rave about their newest favorite cake.  Enjoy!



Dark Chocolate Bean Cake 

1 large can white beans, rinsed and drained
3 large eggs
1/2 unsweetened dark cocoa
3/4 to 1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 to 1 cup dark chocolate, chopped, or mini semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease 8" springform pan. 
In a food processor, mini processor (that's what I used) or blender,  pulse or blend, beans and eggs until smooth.  Put in bowl and whisk in cocoa, sugar, soda, salt, and vanilla extract.  Stir in chocolate chips, as many as you wish.   
Pour into a greased 8" in springform pan.  
Cook in preheated oven for 15 minutes, turn and cook another 12-18 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. 


Raspberry Sauce

2 cups raspberries, fresh or frozen, I used frozen
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons granulated sugar, more if desired
1/2 to 1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract, optional

While cake is cooling, heat water and sugar until sugar is dissolved to make a light syrup.  
Add 2 cups raspberries to light syrup.  
You can add more water and sugar to make more syrup. 
Heat raspberries.
Spoon over whole cake or individual slices.  
Keep refrigerated if sauce is over cake.  

Enjoy!

Frozen Banana Yogurt in the Freezer

My boys love ice cream, frozen yogurt and popsicles.  I have been trying to make healthier recipes for my boys....trying.   Since they have been asking for ice cream for days now,,  I thought I would make frozen yogurt instead.  Using four ingredients it is easy peasy.  Get your blender out and make this delicious frozen treat.  
The hardest part is the wait!
