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.

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.

Strawberry Shortcakes

One of my favorite fruits are strawberries. Strawberry lemonade, strawberry margaritas, and strawberry shortcake. Just to name a few.

Blueberry Scones

If you are looking for a soft, chewy, and light scone recipe, you have come to the right place!!!! I think the reason I’ve never been a huge fan of scones was because they always felt like hard biscuits to me. Or a pastry that has been sitting out for too long. I decided to…
