Cinnamon-Pecan Icebox Cookies

In the last several posts, I’ve written about how make-ahead meals have been saving us valuable time throughout the work week. I’ve also shared a few of my favorite, overnight recipes that can work for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

You should also know that, dessert happens every night here too. Yes, dessert …every night.  

I grew up in a home where serving any kind of dessert was pretty much just a weekend thing. But, I’ve never believed in skipping dessert just because it’s only Tuesday or any other weeknight, for that matter. 


Easy Corn and Bacon Chowder

Some days it's just necessary to take it easy.  

Yesterday was one of those days for me. And I knew I wanted soup. Or stew. Or chowder.  Ya know, some kind of dish in the "soup" neighborhood. 


Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Muffins

Spring showers are happening all over Texas and it's been really rainy and dreary here. This past Sunday, it stormed hard. Our backyard was a muddy mess and flash flood warnings were in effect for our area. 

We weren't going anywhere. 

So, to pass the time we watched a few movies, played board games and I, of course, baked!

Mostly Ham and Asparagus Strata

When it comes to meal planning lately, I feel that I've found a healthy and successful balance of the good, bad and the ugly for myself and for my family. Raw fruit and veggies are making daily appearances on the snack and meal rotation and I'm enjoying them very much (my kids are starting to come around too).


Feng Shui Icon Cookies for the BFF

Lately I've had a good swell of activity in my cookie business and that is good for me, but bad for the people who check my blog for activity and recipes. But, I'll just try to reassure anyone who needs it by using those everlasting, powerful words of Arnie: "I'll be back". It is true that sometimes I may have to disappear briefly to get some bakery orders out.  

Now, this is primarily a picture post of what are, without a doubt, my favorite of all the cookies I've made to date!
