Freezer Meal: Chicken Alfredo Bake This one is for my sister. Who called me one night asking if I possibly had a chicken alfredo recipe I could share with her because she and her family were loving the alfredo bake from Costco, but they were […]

Make-Ahead Muffin Mix

Make-Ahead Muffin Mix

I love a good muffin! But I’m not a big fan of the store-bought mixes.  Or maybe they’re not a fan of me.  Because whenever I make them, the muffins are teeny tiny.  Maybe I’m doing something wrong.  But when I think delicious breakfast muffin, […]

Easy Breakfast Pastries

Easy Breakfast Pastries

So, I may, or may not, be on a puff pastry kick here.  I know that admitting it is half the battle, but I’m not sure I’m ready to do that yet.  So until then, you may just have to read through a few posts […]
