Vanilla Frosted Doughnuts

Doughnuts are always a good way to start the day.  Unless being healthy is your goal of course. I crave cinnamon during the Fall season, especially if they’re part of a doughnut.  These Fall cool crisp mornings are the best with a cup of hot coffee and yummy fattening treat.  These doughnuts are baked and not fried.  Meaning that they are moist and cakey, and not heavy or greasy. They are seriously one of the best doughnuts I’ve ever made.  In fact, this is the same basic recipe as the crumb doughnuts that I made last year.  Adjust the glaze a …

Snickerdoodles

If cookies were the nifty pictures on a calendar, the snickerdoodle would represent one of the Fall months for sure. I’ve been in a funk with recipe making lately and my husband told me that I was the happiest blogging about cookies.  He’s absolutely right.  So I made cookies. I’m all about cinnamon and other warm spices this time of the year and I instantly thought about snickerdoodles.  They are part sugar cookie, part cinnamon, and all delicious.  I’ve never made a snickerdoodle before.  I know, right?  With all the cookie recipes in my collection, you’d think this would have …

5 Lunch Meal Prep Recipes

Are you looking for healthy lunch ideas?  Here’s what I’ve made for lunch recently. 1.

Chicken Fajita.  This is a delicious dinner that turns into just as tasty leftovers for lunch the next day.  You can check out the original blog …

Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

Fall is absolutely my favorite time of the year.  I know I’ve said it a bazillion times.  There is something about the crisp air and falling leaves that makes me happy. I thought I’d share with you some ways that I’m getting ready for the season. Pumpkin Spice Latte.  I think this is one of things that you either love or hate.  I happen to love it.  I’m one of those girls who will take a picture of her first Starbucks’ pumpkin spice latte and post it on social media.  Cliche, I know, but did it really happen if I …

Chicken Spaghetti Casserole

Holy cow, it’s September. If life has gotten more hectic (or you just live for easy meals 365 days a year like I do) then this post is a must read.  I initially made this meal for my sister and her family a couple of months ago.  I put it together in a disposable pan and froze it.  All she needed to do was to defrost it and pop it in the oven.  Before I froze it, my husband and I sneaked a bite (we had to make sure it wasn’t poisonous) and oh my it was so tasty.  My …
