Looking for fabulous cookie recipes for the holidays? Look no further, we have compiled our Top 10 All Time Best Ever Christmas Cookie Recipes.
We are getting close to cookie time in my house. We will be baking and packing up treats for approximately 2 weeks to be delivered to our family, friends and people who have otherwise touched our lives. We call these our "gratitude baskets". We started the tradition in 2006 and I can't imagine stopping. Cooking and baking fills me with love and happiness. Being able to share that with others by giving homemade gifts is more a present for me.

No game day party, get together or gathering is complete without a fabulous spread! Chad and I are not sport fanatics, but we love a good game. Even when it was just the two of us we had a tradition of having a fajita bar, salsa, guacamole and chips. It was so much fun and so delicious. When the food is good it seems to hurt a little less when your team loses, not that I would know anything about that. Right Chad?

It might surprise you to hear that just 4 months ago there was no Jack Daniel's to be found in our home. We had been dabbling in different flavors and cooking with wine and beer more often. Once we sampled Jack Daniels that was it.
I was over the moon with the flavor profile and just knew it cooking with it would make it a home run!

As we all prepare for back to school I have found myself shopping, researching and planning. Munchkin starts preschool this year. The supplies list is as long as my arm. Scissors, crayons, pencils, markers, notebooks, iPad, Mac Book Pro (ha! Just checking if you are listening), paper, art supplies, folders, paints... The list goes on and on. You would think we were starting our own academy.
I know everyone is preparing as 100 other parents are in the back to school aisle with us. They are aimlessly wandering the aisles like zombies with a list in hand. I do hope I am a little more organized, but even so it is overwhelming. Like most parents I feel lost gathering these supplies for my kid.
However, I feel more confident preparing healthy meals for my preschooler. I am am expert in the kitchen, not the back to school aisle, so answering all of the anxious parents requests for recipes that can be made ahead, frozen and reheated and are healthier options for the kids to take to school or eat after school is my forte. We decided to put together our favorite bites for our Munchkin. She loves them and I am sure you will too! Either way, all these meals will be a hit with your family.
Seeing your kids go back to school... Are you excited, sad or a little bit of both?

Something decadent, something frozen, a little chocolate, a little lemon and fabulous summer berries. We love dessert around here, but turning on the oven is a no no some days so we even included some no bake desserts to keep you cool in the kitchen this summer.

Summer is finally here and oh boy, she came with a vengeance. She must of gotten a heads of from Miss Spring that mean Mr. Winter tried to take over her season. Well, I guess 'tried' isn't quite appropriate. Did anyone have spring?
