Pumpkin Cream Cheese Braided Bread Recipe #IDelight

Pumpkin Braided Bread #IDelight

Our family has spent a lot of time in October enjoying what the season has to offer. We've been to apple orchards, pumpkin picking, shared a dozen or so cider donuts and got all of our Halloween decorations up. While pumpkins may be just about everywhere right now, we typically reserve our pumpkin baked goods for November when Thanksgiving rolls around. But I couldn't hold off much longer because oldest daughter spotted something yummy in the … [Read more...]

Simple Cinnamon Roll Apple Dumplings Recipe

Cinnamon Roll Apple Dumpling with Icing Recipe

Lately, the weather has been a little wacky around here. For a few days it's hot and in the 80's and then rainy and then cools back off into the 60's and the process starts all over again. I normally wouldn't complain since it could just be plain old cold and nothing else but it makes dessert planning a bit difficult. I rarely turn on the oven when the outside temperature is over 80 degrees because I just hate heating up the … [Read more...]

Mini Apple Pies with Caramel Apple Candy Leaves Recipe #WiltonTreatTeam

Mini Caramel Apple Pies #WiltonTreatTeam

Just about everywhere you look right now, you'll find an assortment of apples. I know I'm loving the varieties available right now, especially my beloved HoneyCrisp apples. I'm just a little bummed that the six apple trees in my yard didn't produce the way I'd hoped. The Pink Lady produced no apples, the HoneyCrisp ones were lost to my dog and the other 4 trees produced by got attacked by some kind of worm or other pest. I'll need to figure that … [Read more...]

SMORES Poke Cake Recipe #KraftRecipes

September is one of my absolute favorites months of the year for two reasons. First, the temperatures finally start dropping back down to a comfortable level and second, I appreciate time with my kids more on the weekends now that they're back in school. We use both of these things to our advantage with family picnics on the weekends and after dinner time together around the fire pit. The cooler weather allows us to break out the ingredients for … [Read more...]

Lightened Up Apple Jam Recipe made with #Truvia Baking Blend

I don't know how all parents are feeling right about now but I'm pretty excited to see summer come to an end with just 12 days until our kids are back in school. Along with the 7 hours of freedom I'll get to experience for the first time in 8 years, the beginning of the school year also comes with some "mommy chores". Among those are packing lunches on days the kids aren't keen on the school lunch menu and getting their day started with a decent … [Read more...]

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Icebox Cake Recipe

There are a lot of things to love about the summer months. For our family, it's the outdoor grilling, swimming and cool treats. I love being able to retire the oven for a few months and enjoy cold desserts that are easy to make. Most of the time, those desserts involve one of my favorite cheeses, Kraft PHILADELPHIA cream cheese. This versatile cheese is so versatile, which is why I keep a never ending stash of it my refrigerator. It's perfect for … [Read more...]

Caramel Marshmallow Frosted All Natural Brownies from Immaculate Baking Company

Caramel Marshmallow Frosted Immaculate Baking Company Brownies

I was provided with product samples through the Platefull Co-Op. Like many other moms, I don't always have time to whip up treats from scratch, so I turn to conveniently packaged baking mixes that only require a few extra ingredients. They not only significantly cut my time spent in the kitchen but they often taste better than the concoctions I've been known to make. The baking mixes I sampled from the Immaculate Baking Company not only make … [Read more...]
