Cooking for a family, while making family time

Breakfast

Patriotic Parfait

Patriotic Parfait

Alright so parfait is a stretch, but the title was too cute to resist. However, you could layer this like a parfait and it would ring true to its title. Now that we got our food terminology out of the way we can get to […]

Frozen Yogurt Blueberries

Frozen Yogurt Blueberries

I had quickly written about these before but never in a formal post. Summer snack fest is upon us Mom’s now that it’s summer break. I like to have some extra healthy options around the house for the kids when they’re bugging for ANOTHER snack. […]

Valentine’s Day Double Danish

Valentine’s Day Double Danish

Back at Christmas time I was working hard on candy cane danishes and a friend of mine mentioned using Nutella as the filling. That was all I needed, the light bulb went off and here we have our double danish, which just so happens to […]

Homemade Coffee Creamer

Homemade Coffee Creamer

My love for coffee started in college and has only gotten stronger over the years as my family grew. It’s how we start every morning, and if I’m honest I usually have a second cup most afternoons. I take my coffee with both sweetener and […]

Letter Pancakes

Letter Pancakes

Apple Cinnamon Monkey Bread

Apple Cinnamon Monkey Bread

This is Christmas morning in our house. I’ve made monkey bread every year for Christmas morning since my husband and I started dating many moons ago. It’s become a really special tradition we’ve gotten to pass onto the kids. Now the kids even request it […]

Snowman Bagel

Snowman Bagel

This little creation came about last winter and quickly became a favorite with my children. We love mini bagels around here, a staple for breakfast or packed in their lunch boxes. I turn them into pizzas, sandwiches or now, snowmen! It’s no surprise I love […]

Cone-Acopias

Cone-Acopias

These are what my kids have for Thanksgiving breakfast every year. They check off all the boxes for a holiday breakfast, cute, delicious and on theme. Let’s be honest, most of us parents are very busy cooking, or getting ready to travel for Thanksgiving dinner […]

Ham Egg & Swiss Casserole

Ham Egg & Swiss Casserole

Mommy Spicers! I had so many of you wanting a new breakfast idea that I decided to try something a little out of my wheel house. Breakfast casserole! We usually go the breakfast sandwich route but boy was this easier. A literal dump and bake […]
