Happy Fall Ya’ll

Just can’t wait any longer, I am ready to celebrate temps falling below 100. And with that celebration comes pumpkins of all sizes and shapes.

Trisha Yearwood’s Key Lime Cake

Just watched Trisha make this cake on her program. It sounds so good and will be perfect for the last weeks of hot weather. The frosting is, of course, cream cheese frosting. So don’t forget the 3 oz box of lime jello at the grocery this weekend. 1 (3 oz) box of lime jello 1 … Continue reading

Peanut Butter Mississippi Mud Brownies

Just put a lemon pound cake in the oven and am waiting for the cupcakes that I made with the left over batter.

Vacation Blues & Bloating

What a wonderful time we had…but we are back to reality of grocery shopping, washing clothes and going through piles of mail. As we drove through Arizona and New Mexico, we had lots of time to reflect on this past year … Continue reading
