Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

The smell of chocolate chip cookies is almost intoxicating. It is said that the aroma of these cookies impulse people to shop, or make you want a cup of coffee. Ironically I am drinking coffee right now, I do not have a cookie in my hand though. these cookies are the devil and will make…

Blueberry Crumble Pie

This past week was my birthday! So of course alot of delicous foods were involved. Let me first start by sharing this pie. I had a small get together with family and friends for my birthday. One of my good friends was coming, and she is vegan. I knew someone was supplying the cake, but…

Egg White and Bacon Muffins

These are protein and veggie packed muffins. Filled with egg whites, a few whole eggs, vegetables, cheese and bacon. Great breakfast or quick meal any time of the day. Also freezer friendly!!

Texas Pecan Pie

Over the holidays I received a gallon size bag of local Texas pecans. I was so excited, and instantly put them in my freezer. I love to store pecans in my freezer, they last so much longer. Yesterday was Texas Independence Day!! Of course I had to make something to celebrate, and what’s more perfect…

Coffee Cake Banana Nut Muffins

I have made a lot of variations of banana nut bread over the past few months. Chocolate banana but bread, banana nut cupcakes, and more I haven’t gotten to post yet. This definitely takes the cake.

Mini Pancake Muffins

These mini pancakes are not only delicious, but perfect for kids, brunch tables, and sitting in bed watching food network on a Sunday morning. You can top them with whatever you like. I used mini chocolate chips, strawberries, and left some plain. Some other great toppings would be peanut butter chips, blueberries, even chopped bacon….

Mango de Gallo

I put pico de gallo on everything!! I had bought some mangos for my little girl and as I was making her one, I soon realized she wasn’t going to eat the entire thing. I was making tacos for lunch and had already planned on making some pico de gallo, so why not add mangos…

Chicken Dijon

This is a chicken dish over grilled onions, topped with a honey dijon mustard, cheese, green onions, and tomatoes. Pure bliss. There used to be this restaurant where I live that had this dish on their menu. I loved it. They closed down, and I was heart broken. They still have a bar opened here…

Strawberry Shortcakes

One of my favorite fruits are strawberries. Strawberry lemonade, strawberry margaritas, and strawberry shortcake. Just to name a few. I had planned to make this dessert for Valentine’s day, but I went with brownies instead. I’m glad I saved it for today. The sun peaked through and it reminded me of summertime. This would be…
