Smoky Corn Muffins


I have a love-hate relationship with corn muffins and corn bread. I love the idea of serving them with soup or chili, but I usually hate the way they turn out. All the recipes I’ve tried in the past have been either too bland or too dry, or even worse, a combination of the two. … Read more

How To Make Fluffy, Flaky Biscuits


I’ve been very happy with my go-to biscuit recipe over the past few years. The only drawback is that they don’t rise very high or get very fluffy.

Tropical Carrot Bread


Over the past few days, I have been more thankful than ever for our freezer stash of food.

Zucchini Nut Muffins with Pineapple


As part of my baking day on Saturday, I knew some kind of zucchini baked good had to be on the list. I was leaning toward a bread, but my husband thought muffins would be the better route. His rationale was that it would be easier to pull just a few out of the freezer … Read more

Peach & Blueberry Cobbler


Fall is my favorite season of the year. I love the chillier air that necessitates sweater weather! I love the sights, smells and tastes associated with fall.

Ham & Cheese Pockets


During my baking marathon last Saturday, I was so excited to get a quick, grab-and-go lunch stocked in the freezer. Once school starts, it will just be my husband, our 3 year old and me eating lunch at home. Figuring out what to make for the three of us for lunch has been tricky for … Read more

Cream Cheese & Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Rolls


As I spent the day in the kitchen baking this past Saturday, I decided that I really wanted to make a batch of cinnamon rolls to add to the freezer. The thought of being able to warm up a cinnamon roll to have with a cup of coffee after an early morning nursing session sounded … Read more
