When I was younger I would make coffee cake for my family often. Early in the morning I would wake up and start the baking process. I love it. I love that is a not too sweet muffin with the sugar crumble texture on top. As a busy mom I don't have time in the morning to bake a cake so I converted the recipe to muffins. These coffee cake muffins are quick, easy and our family's favorite!!Coffee Cake is a savory cake with a sweet crumbly topping. It pairs so perfectly with a nice hot cup of hot . . .
Years ago we went to a friend's house to celebrate his birthday. She made us these navajo tacos and this cucumber limeade. Fresh homemade fry bread, your favorite meat, beans, piled high with lettuce, pico, salsa, and of course guacamole, This meal is always a win in our family. Navajo Fry Bread In the recipe card below is a handed down family recipe for homemade fry bread that will knock your socks off. It is also a little more work and time intensive than I often have time for so I do . . .
Hey guys - it's my birthday month, so I thought - why not share a birthday recipe? I'm not a big bread maker. I'm not a patient person and all the waiting and raising just isn't my jive. I'll make rolls a few times a year and cinnamon rolls a few times a year. That's about my max. But what better reason to make bread than a birthday? Who wouldn't love to wake up to these birthday cake sweet rolls?! Perfect Homemade Dough The dough is my mother-in-law's recipe and it is so so . . .
My Mother-in-law Mary makes the BEST rolls. I mean THE BEST. These are NOT, I repeat NOT your standard run of the mill, buy in the deli section crescent rolls in a can. I have been to numerous dinners where she served these rolls and if you were to ask ANYONE what their favorite part of the meal was. They would tell you, without hesitation, the rolls! Mary was kind enough to share the recipe with me and I have made them for special dinners and at Thanksgiving when we visited my . . .
I LOVE my Grandma's pies. I especially go gaga over her Cherry Pie. However, I've never really had to make it- because she has always made it. One year I was not going to be spending thanksgiving with her so I received a lesson before hand on how Grandma makes her pies, and her recipes. She is famous for her homemade pie crust! Like seriously famous. This homemade pie crust surprisingly easy and creates a light, flakey, buttery pie crust that pairs perfect with all pies! I always expect . . .
I have a fluffy buttery breadstick recipe that is one of my family's all time favorite. We love to make them with soups, salads, pastas (never too many carbs baby!) It's so easy to turn the breadstick recipe into witch fingers!! These witch fingers breadsticks will be the hit of the party!! The original breadsticks recipe I like to make them thick and fluffy, but for these witches fingers I make them skinny. I also like to cook them a little bit longer so that they are a little more . . .
Dumplings are arguably the best part of chicken soup. When my mom makes them for my family there is never enough. We argue and fight about who has more dumplings...and we race to get seconds and finish of the rest of the dumplings in the pot. Now when my mom makes chicken and dumplings she does two batches. Makes the soup, and does one batch of dumplings...serves up half the folks and with half the soup remaining add more dumplings. This isn't necessary but makes the soup go really . . .
I first ate these soft, fluffy, garlic bread sticks with a steaming hot bowl of beef stew. Just thinking of the dinner at Ashlees house warms my heart. Why does comfort food do that to you? The smell of homemade bread, chicken noodle soup, mac n cheese....you can help but become nostalgic. A testament to how powerful food can be in our lives right? SO, while my bread sticks are rising right now, I am going to share this recipe with you. These bread sticks are simple and fast. I love to . . .
Growing up my mom would make these butterscotch pull aparts on Christmas morning and on Easter morning. They were always a perfect perfect special addition to her egg soufflé. Butterscotch Pull Aparts Are A Make-Ahead Breakfast I love to serve these for brunches and baby showers too! They are a make ahead food, so you aren't scrambling during the hustle bustle, but end up with a delicious dish. Use frozen rolls as a base. I prefer the Rhodes brand, but have found them difficult to . . .
I have been a long time fan of Mimi's honey bran muffins. Each time I dine there I HAVE to get one. And sometimes a second one to-go! Sadly, I no longer live near a mimi's so my craving for these muffins has gotten out of control. I've been itching to come up with Benefits of Bran Some people turn their noses up when they hear the word "bran", but I promise that you will LOVE these muffins. They are sweet, tasty, moist, and full of fiber for your belly. Bran is a wonderful ingredient to add . . .
Flatbread Pizza is one of my very favorite meals to order at a restaurant. I love the flavor infusions of herbs, sauces, spices on a light crispy crust. Usually the only time I order flatbread pizza is when I'm out with my girlfriends, so I wanted to make this, from scratch, at home for my family! I knew my kids would love it. The Dough! One of my favorite and most used recipes is this Pizza Dough recipe. It's so simple, very fast and no-fail. Seriously friends, it will change your . . .
