Sweet Orange Petal Roll

Sweet Orange Petal Roll

Sweet Orange Petal Roll is a fun twist on the traditional orange roll and so much more fun to eat. So I have a hard time leaving a good thing alone and a Petal Roll is one of them! Remember that yummy Sweet Petal Cinnamon Roll I shared last year?   And then there was that Garlic Parmesan Petal Roll a few weeks ago.  So I figured why not an orange version. I love orange rolls and they always make an appearance at our Easter table in some shape or form.  So this year they [Continue Reading…]

Korean Beef Tacos

Korean Beef Tacos

Since the start of the year I have had a fun time experimenting with and sharing a new slow cooker recipe with you each week.  Unfortunately not all slow cooker recipes are created equal and the one I was hoping to share this week just didn’t make the cut.  So instead of a slow cooker recipe this Monday you are going to get a yummy Korean beef taco recipe.  It’s not made in the slow cooker but it is still a delicious and easy dinner idea!

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…]
