Dairy Free Italian Fried Dough

Fried Dough – do I have your attention? How about now? Dairy Free Italian Fried Dough. Yes, no? NO??? Just kidding? Stop it! Yummmmmmmm. After I’d tried this out a few times I made it for my mother. She said they tasted exactly how her Grandma used to make it. Total score for me. If…

Pineapple-Coconut Muffins

When we had our café I purchased a book 1 Mix 100 Muffins – you know the series. They have 1 Mix books for everything – pizzas, muffins, cupcakes, etc. Well I decided to play around with one from that book and came up with these Pineapple-Coconut Muffins. These muffins are yummy and so easy…

Easy Homemade Slice & Bake Cookies

I got a wild hair the other day and decided to try my hand at homemade slice & bake cookies. Brilliant, right? Totally – and a HUGE mom win. Not to mention this is EASY! So, to do this, I took the basic Toll House Cookie recipe (on the back of the chip package) and…

Easy Holiday Cupcakes

Happy 4th of July. What says summer holiday better than these easy holiday cupcakes? As I’ve said before you don’t have to go overboard to have fun holiday food. These easy holiday cupcakes were my go-to for years when my daughter, now 11, was little. Don’t be afraid of using a short cut way, and…

Lawn Mower Cupcakes

I thought these adorable lawn mower cupcakes are a cute idea to wish your favorite dad a happy father’s day. The kiddo and I made these a few years ago, sorry I don’t remember what magazine I found the idea. These are so sweet I just had to pull them from the archives. See for…

I Made Irish Soda Bread

I’ve never attempted Irish Soda Bread, though the hubs has made it a few times for wine dinners. As much as I love eating carbs, I am coming to the conclusion that I am not much of a lover of making yeast dough. It isn’t that they’re hard. I think it’s just a matter of…

Irish Apple Crumble

Tipping the hat to the Irish again today with this recipe I found for Irish Apple Crumble. In testing out a new recipe I always cut it in half because I’m never sure exactly what’s going to happen and there’s nothing worse than wasting ingredients on a bad recipe. However this was a HUGE hit…

Irish Coffee Cake

In honor of the small bit of Irish in my family I thought I’d give you a few out of the normal Irish recipes in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. To be honest these aren’t from my family. Apparently my family did not embrace the Irish side that much, we were too busy cooking Italian…
