Jalapeño Cornbread Bites + Heluva Good! Dip

Thank you Heluva Good! for sponsoring this post. For those of you who do not already know, I live in Texas.

When I walk outside, I feel personally attacked by Mother Nature. So there is nothing like sitting in a chilly, air conditioned room on a sweltering summer day and munching on a delicious treat. Seriously, with my scrumptious Jalapeño Cornbread Bites recipe and Heluva …

Bison Chili Bread with Better Than Bouillon

Bison Chili Bread

This post was sponsored by Better Than Bouillon as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. Change excites me.

That’s what I find so exciting about cooking. It may seem cliche, but the change in weather means a change in my kitchen. I go from fresh salads and BBQ in the summer to hearty soups and warm breads in …

I have a confession to make… I am a Pinterest mom! Well, that’s not totally honest. I’m a bit of a hybrid between the frazzled, over-caffeinated parent and the whimsically crafty Mary Poppins mama. In reality, that means that I like Pinterest-worthy treats without the excessive Pinterest-worthy effort. If you are nodding your head right about now, then you will love my super easy (and quite lazy) Halloween treat for your little munchkin.

Cherry Spice Bread, recipe

Classic Rerun: Cherry Spice Bread

Sometimes recipes are so good, they go into syndication! That’s why today, I’m playing a rerun of one of our most popular summertime recipes, Cherry Spice Bread. And with cherries in season, it’s time to dig up this old classic… It is not even August and all I can think about is the Autumn baking season. Cakes, pastries, muffins, scones, and breads! Oh, I can just smell those sweet aromas now. Fall is my absolute favorite season for the baking alone. And it is always at about this point in summer that I start getting the itch. Sneaking warm, seasonal …
