    Pumpkin Pie French Toast

    It’s November, and that means I can incorporate pumpkin pie into everything. Right? I love changing up breakfast. I wanted to find a way to make pumpkin pie into a breakfast. This is where my pumpkin pie french toast was born. It’s so easy. Honestly, I’m kind of mad I didn’t make this before this year. Trust me when I say that this is going to become a fall staple in your house. Of course, that’s if you love pumpkin pie.

    Homemade Blueberry Lemonade

    I’ve really wanted to get back into posting recipes here once a month. They’re one of my favorite posts to do. I love  everything else that goes along with it. I wanted to jump back in with a delicious yet easy recipe. Which is why I am sharing with you my homemade blueberry lemonade recipe. It is so easy to make, and it’s delicious too. I am usually not a huge fan of lemonade you buy. I don’t know what it is, but it has a taste I just don’t like. Another thing I love is blueberries. I thought making a blueberry lemonade was going to be delicious, and spoiler…

    Churro Bites

    One of my favorite sweet foods is Churros. I always thought they would be hard to make. This led me to only ever eating them at a fair or Del Taco. The other day I really wanted some, and I really didn’t want to have to leave my house to get them. I decided that it was time I learned how to make churros. The best part is that it was actually quite simple to make. However, I did run into an issue. I didn’t have a piping bag or a star tip. Luckily, I was able to use a large ziplock bag, but no matter how many times I tried…

    Homemade NY Style Pizza

    One of the things that I hate about not living in New York is pizza. Pizza in New York just tastes better. David & I have searched for delicious pizza all over Las Vegas. We found one or two places we do like. It’s no surprise the owners of those two are from New York. Unfortunately, those two places are not the cheapest. David decided he was going to figure out to make our own pizza, and he even wrote a book. You can get it for free with Kindle Unlimited (first month free).  I wanted to share with you my favorite homemade NY style pizza recipe from his book.…

    Mini Cupcake Tin Lava Cakes

    One of my absolute favorite desserts to have at a restaurant is a lava cake. I really wanted to try to make them at home, but I knew how much of a mess it would be for my little ones to eat. After thinking about it for a little while, I came up with the idea for mini cupcake tin lava cakes. Luckily, they came out exactly as I hope they would. They had that delicious lava cake flavor and center, but it was so tiny there wasn’t too much ooze and mess. One thing I loved was how easy it was to make these lava cakes. The whole process…

    Beer Battered Lobster Tails

    Last weekend David & I were at the Venetian, and tried a fried lobster tail on a stick. It was absolutely delicious, but not really realistic at $17 per lobster tail. David decided he was going to make them at home, and see if they lived up to the ones at the Venetian. I won’t lie, I definitely like David’s beer battered lobster tails even more. Especially with some lemon and butter. David started out by heating oil in a pan, and then he tackled taking the lobster tails out of their shells. While David tackled the shells, he had me mix cornstarch, flour, parsley, salt, garlic powder, and half…

    Shepard’s Pie

    Happy day 14 of Blogmas! This week I made Shepard’s pie for my family. They loved it. Honestly while it was delicious, I definitely made a few mistakes. I still wanted to share this recipe with all of you though. I used ground beef, which technically makes this more of a cottage pie; however, people use the term shepard’s pie for both ground beef and lamb. Truthfully, I love lamb. I would have used it if everyone in the house liked lamb. That isn’t the case though. This post contains affiliate links.

    Oatmeal Cookie Mix Gift

    I remember when I was little I received chocolate chip cookie mix in a mason jar as a gift. I thought that this year I could make this gift for somebody else. Instead of chocolate chip I decided I’d make an oatmeal cookie mix gift. I really loved how easy it was to make, and now I want to make a whole bunch of them for people David works with.

    Easy Pumpkin Pie Truffles

    We are officially a few days away from Thanksgiving! I’m not ready for pumpkin season to be over, but I’m extremely ready for the holiday season. I made pumpkin pie truffles over this past weekend. I wanted to make sure I had as much pumpkin as possible before Thanksgiving. They were a huge hit. David didn’t like them, but he doesn’t count. He hates sweets. Since they were so popular, I decided to share them with you. Items used: Food Processor Mixing Bowl Wilton’s White Candy Melts Pumpkin Spice Truffles To start out, I put 9 graham cracker sheets in my food processor, and pulsed until they were a ground up finely.…

    Mini Individual Apple Crumble Pies

    Now that it’s the fall, I seem to have an abundance of apples from apple picking. One great way to use up those apples is to bake with them. I decided to look for a new way to make apple pie, and I found a great one in my Harry Potter Unofficial Cookbook. I found one for mini individual apple crumble pies. While I did use the recipe in the cookbook as a guide, I did improvise a tiny bit with the filling. I used four granny smith apples, instead of two granny smith & two gala apples. Also, I had a bit a trouble with my crust.. because I…
