The countdown is on and I am more ready this year for Christmas than I think I have every been.  I’m not sure what’s wrong with me??!!  My shopping is done and wrapped.  Yikes!  The only problem with that is I have a tendency to keep shopping.  Oops! We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I loved every minute having all five kids home.  They have all returned to their respective homes and the sheets are washed and beds are made and ready for most of them to return the week [Continue Reading…]

Cowgirl Cookie Bark


Cowgirl Cookie Bark is a fun combination lots of flavors, colors and textures and a yummy treat for holiday gift giving. I am a fan of cookie and candy bark for holiday gifts.  I love cookies too but cookies are best eaten fresh, not five days later.  The best part of cookie/candy bark is it tastes great 5 or more days later too!  It is perfect for making ahead for holiday gift giving. I have shared a lot of different versions of cookie/candy bark over the years.  Reindeer Corn Cookie [Continue Reading…]

White Chocolate Peppermint Pretzels

White Chocolate Peppermint Pretzels

I recently spent a week in Utah visiting my two girls.  I love going to visit my girls but it is always amazing how their cars are conveniently out of gas and they have no food in their apartments each time I come to town!  I guess that is what mom’s are for and truth be told I love spoiling them.  Since they had no food, a trip to Costco was in order.  While there I  managed to pick up a little treat for myself.  A bag of white chocolate [Continue Reading…]

Cookies & Cream Rice Krispie Treats


This post was originally created for a fun series my friend Stephanie over at Somewhat Simple but together.  If you haven’t checked out all the fun posts, each starting with a letter of the alphabet hop on over there after you read my post of course! I think she is up to the letter N this week! I chose the letter C .  The first thing that came to mind was the song “C is for cookie, that’s good enough for me,” that Cookie Monster loves to sing.  So I [Continue Reading…]

St. Patrick’s Day Chocolate Dipped Oreos

St. Patrick's Day Chocolate Dipped Oreos

I have never been a huge fan of St. Patrick’s Day.  Most years I don’t even bother to wear green (Pinch me!)  In fact my poor children were deprived because we never really celebrated St. Patrick’s Day when they were growing up.  Now that I am doing more family history work I have discovered that I do have a little bit of Irish blood in me. So I have decided this year I better wear green and pay a little homage to my Irish ancestors.  I have many years of [Continue Reading…]

Key Lime White Chocolate Popcorn

Key Lime White Chocolate Popcorn

I will pick a citrus flavor over chocolate any day!  Don’t get me wrong, I love chocolate  but I love citrus a bit more. But when I can have my citrus flavor with chocolate that is even better.  Today’s recipe for Key Lime White Chocolate Popcorn makes it so I don’t have to choose! The ingredients are pretty simple.  Popcorn is essential.  I like to pop mine in the air popper but you can also use microwave popcorn.  You need about 16 cups of popped corn.  You can use white [Continue Reading…]
