Sometimes I like to serve my family something just a little different. These eggs are a twist on Huevo Rancheros, the eggs aren’t poached in salsa, but they make a fabulous quick and filling breakfast or brunch treat. My kids love them and call them “Fancy Eggs” but there is really nothing fancy at all about the humble egg, tortilla and bean dish. Simple food at it’s best is almost always better to me than fancy, complicated recipes. A big bonus here is that they go together in a flash and I can have them on the...

How to make brownie bites This is the time of year when there are parties, dinners, work functions and family obligations to attend. I’m always looking for something quick, delicious and affordable to take along with me. I’m most often asked to bring a dessert of some sort (baking  is my hobby) and I think these Cheesecake Brownie Bites are perfect to take to a holiday gathering. The brownie recipe alone is very, very good and adding a cheesecake filling to these little bites makes them extra special. These bake up in...

Once upon a time, I bought a really small container of apple pie spice just to see what it tasted like. I just use cinnamon and sugar in my apple pies so I didn’t know what apple pie spice was all about. How was it different that what I already used? Well, except for being way more expensive per ounce than my beloved cinnamon/sugar mixture it also contained allspice and cloves- but I didn’t think they made enough of a flavor difference in my pie to justify the cost of the very spendy little container of specialty spice. Now...

We are a pretzel lovin’ house! Hard, soft, dipped in chocolate or jalapeno cheese sauce- we love them all. I have made pretzel buns for burgers many times, and I’ve used this same recipe for traditional large soft pretzels, but pretzel bites are relatively new to me. Since I’m always on the lookout for smaller, kid sized foods to serve to my girls for snacks and treats I was so excited when these turned out as well as they did. Pretzel bites pack a punch of soft pretzel flavor, but are a cinch to make. Don’t let...

For our Spongebob Party I searched for the perfect fruity and creative recipes and snack ideas. While searching I discovered that Kraft had changed up their dressing packaging to say “Anything Dressing.” This got the wheels turning in my head. What could I create with the help of dressing? I had never thought of using dressing for more than salads but that was a brilliant idea! I discovered Walmart was having fun  Pourables Dressing Demonstrations . That would be awesome but my store was set to do it next week and I needed...
