Ice Cream Sundae Kit


Hi friends! This is Mary from Barefeet In The Kitchen and I’m thrilled to be hanging out here with Leigh Anne today. I met Leigh Anne in Ohio a little over a month ago and discovered that we are kindred spirits.

Leigh Anne is every bit as sweet and kind in person as she is on her blog.  When Leigh Anne told me [Continue Reading…]

Light and Fluffy Pumpkin Dip

Fluffy Pumpkin Dip

Is a pumpkin a vegetable or fruit?  That is the question. Well, the answer is…..pumpkin is a FRUIT!  It is a member of the gourd family and because of it’s fleshy seedy, center it is a fruit not a vegetable. Pumpkin season is in full swing! I hosted a girls night out craft night at my home the other  night and we had several pumpkin themed crafts so a pumpkin treat was definitely in order. This fluffy pumpkin dip is a combination of cream cheese, sugar, pumpkin, marshmallow creme and of course [Continue Reading…]

One thing that can suffer during that time is dinner time. Not just finding time to eat together but finding time to even cook dinner. I love to have some go to dinners that can be made ahead of time so that when I know I’m going to have a super crazy day I can prepare dinner the night before. Today’s recipe [Continue Reading…]
