Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls

Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls

It’s that time of year.  The time of year when I start thinking about cinnamon rolls and experimenting with new cinnamon roll recipes.  It usually happens twice a year.  You see, our church holds a bi-annual General Conference each year that is broadcast around the world on TV in April and in October.  What that basically means is we get to stay home, in our jammies and watch TV for church twice a year.  It also means we get to eat cinnamon rolls.  Cinnamon rolls and hot chocolate are a [Continue Reading…]

The Best Key Lime Bars

Key Lime Bars

These key lime bars are amazing.  They pack a powerful lime punch! I first made these key lime bars back in 2010 for a women’s event at church.  We were doing a dessert bar and I got to experiment with lots of yummy bar cookies.  As soon as I took my first bite of these key lime bars I knew they were a winner. When I made them this past week and my husband took a bite, the first word out of his mouth was , “Wow!”   It was [Continue Reading…]

My Skin Care Routine


I am often asked about my skin care routine and what products I use on my skin.   Taking care of my skin has become more and more important to me as I have gotten older.  One of my regrets is not taking better care of my skin sooner.  I wish someone had told me when I was a teenager and in my early twenties how important it was to take good care of my skin. During all of my teenage years and most of my twenties, I was one of [Continue Reading…]

Favorite Utah Restaurants

Favorite Utah Restaurants

In February I spent almost two weeks in Utah.  I attended two conferences, spent time with my girls and other family and ate.  One of my favorite things to do with my girls is to try new restaurants and visit some of my favorites.  I spent a lot time in Salt Lake City this trip because of my conferences  so I got to check out some new SLC eateries. I have driven by Eva’s Bakery in downtown Salt Lake many times.  Each time I thought, it looks just like Paris! [Continue Reading…]

Golden Oreo Easter Egg Truffles

Golden Oreo Easter Egg Truffles

Back in 2009 I made 175 Oreo Truffles for a church event.  I shared the recipe here.  I like to call them little balls of goodness.  I decided to change that recipe up a little bit for today’s post and make an Easter version. Instead of the regular chocolate Oreo I used the Golden Oreos which are my personal favorite.   The recipe is simple – only two ingredients,  Oreos and cream cheese.  The Oreos are crushed up and blended into the cream cheese. I then formed round little balls [Continue Reading…]
