Cranberry Pecan Pie Cake

We debated over whether this was a pie or a cake.  Either way it is delicious!  And super easy to make, which is a win win in my book! This could be a fun and easy alternative for cranberries at Thanksgiving.  It calls for almond extract, which I love (especially added to icing). Print Cranberry […]

Cake-Like Blueberry Muffins

  I’ve been in a major food rut.  It seems like everything I try is boring and plain. With school being so busy, cooking and even eating has felt more like a chore than a pleasure. Lately though, recipes have been turning out much better and I seem to have more inspiration to try new […]

Easy Peasy Applesauce

It’s that time of the year again…where apples are plentiful.  We made crockpot Red Beans and Rice again this weekend (so good!) and served it with homemade applesauce.  It was a perfect combination.

A healthy start to your day…

I heard you could put spinach in a smoothie and you wouldn’t be able to taste it.  Guess what?  I heard right! It was delicious and nutritious.  The only downside was that it turned the smoothie from a beautiful red color to a more neutral brown color, but for all the added benefits I can handle that. Spinach […]

Thrifty Tip: Frozen Veggies

This is the time of year where fresh vegetables and fruit are abundant!  This means lower prices.  One way I save money is to buy vegetables now and freeze them for later. I chop or slice the vegetables.  Spread them out on a cookie sheet and place them in the freezer (aka flash freezing).  Once […]
