Bread Machine Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Baked Caramel Apple Cinnamon Roll

  I've made quite a few different homemade cinnamon rolls over the years but there's only one recipe that comes out perfect every single time. I first ran across the cinnamon roll recipe (designed for bread machines) at A Cowboy's Wife blog and have been using it ever since. While it's delicious as it is, it's also fun to tweak with different flavors. Right now, I'm in the fall and baked apple pie mindset so it only seemed right to make … [Read more...]

Ball Canning | Step by Step Homemade Strawberry Jam with FreshTECH

How to Make Strawberry Jam

*Ball Canning provided me with product. Last month when Ball Canning reached out to me about participating in the Can-It-Forward program I got pretty darn excited. I'm already deeply obsessed with mason jars (one peek inside my house and pantry would prove that) but up until now I've only used them for purposes other than canning. You see, despite my mother's claims that canning is an easy process, it's something I've always been afraid of. I've … [Read more...]

chewy chocolate and peanut butter granola bars

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for ACH Food Companies Inc. I received a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.

Blackberry Buckle Dessert

This time last week or maybe even the week before, I tend to lose track of time, we were getting ready to take the kids the local orchard to pick blackberries. My mom happened to be visiting at the time and mentioned she knew a great spot to pick wild ones. So she ended up taking us out to the park where there's a bike trail that is absolutely littered with wild blackberry bushes. We ended up bring home a few cups of them and to my surprise we … [Read more...]

OREO Chocolate Cheesecake Pudding Pops Recipe

Oreo Cheesecake Pudding Pops Recipe

Bored, bored, bored, bored, bored, bored, bored! That's the tune these kiddos of mine having been singing all day. It started out cool and stormy and now it's almost hot, but not hot enough to take them out to the water park. So instead of listening to the "bored song" one more time, I dug through my cabinets to find something, anything to entertain them. What I found was a few boxes of pudding mix and a fun way for them to cook up their … [Read more...]

Strawberry-Banana Nutella Cookies Recipe

Strawberry Banana Nutella Sugar Cookies Recipe

Baking cookies is something I usually reserve for Christmas, Valentine's Day and other similar cool weather holidays. I look for reasons to never turn the oven on during the summer but sometimes a craving hits that just can't wait for the seasonal change. It usually involves something irresistible like Nutella. This week we had some bananas and extra strawberries hanging around so we put them to good use in a fruit topped cookie because as we … [Read more...]
