Orange Creamsicle Cookies From Heaven

One of my favorite treats when I was growing up were those cups of ice cream that had the wax covered lid with a wooden spoon and they came with different syrups swirled in. And my favorite by far was the orange creamsicle cup! Talk about delicious! So, putting it in a cookie form made perfect sense, all of the flavors of the yummy ice…

Chewy Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles are by far my favorite cookie, but so many times they can be dry and too crunchy. Not these babies! They are perfectly chewy and so soft.

Fluffy Flapjacks

So lets be honest here, I didn’t take this beautiful picture. BUT I have an explanation. My husband and I love these pancakes so much that they didn’t spend much time in a pretty little stack. And, I finished making these 5 minutes before the finale of The Bachelorette and I couldn’t miss that for pancake pictures… I know it’s a poor excuse, but it…

Cuban White Sauce Pasta

To be honest, I’m a red sauce kind of a girl, but my husband has an obsession with white sauce on pasta! We eat pasta at least  once or twice a week because it’s fast, cheap and easy! It’s always fun to experiment with different shaped pastas and trying to create new sauces. I’ve had my share of failures and sauce disasters, but this one…
