Heart Cakes with White Drizzle

For everyone that did not start a diet resolution for the New Year, these heart cakes with white drizzle glaze are for you.  My original plan was to create heart cakes and make them into smores.  I was beyond thrilled with myself when I made heart cutouts out of the hard graham cracker.  My...

Zucchini and Cauliflower Cheese Pancakes

A while back I had made some bacon cauliflower pancakes on the blog.  They were super easy to make and now that we have a kid I wanted to incorporate some other vegetables into the mix.  I added zucchini and cauliflower along with some cheese.  You’ve got to love the cheesy goodness in these pancakes and...

Pepper Jack Steak Enchiladas

These enchiladas have been on my mind for quite some time.  Almost a whole month to be exact.  We went out to dinner one night after church to a chain Mexican restaurant.  (GO FIGURE)  It had been years since I had eaten their and decided to take some recommendations on food options from our...

Turkey Mexican Bowl

I have a confession to make.  I’m totally addicted to Downton Abbey!  It’s currently on its Fourth Season but I didn’t get hooked until this past December.  Everyone was always talking about the show and I love a good one that draws you in and you can’t even leave the couch to do something...

Pink Lemonade Fruit Punch

This past week I was glancing through some old posts and categories and noticed that I was seriously lacking in the beverage department.  I think that drinks are so hard to photograph and I usually tend to drink just water or wine.  Oh yea, I can’t forget about my morning pick-me-up, coffee. One drink...

Baked Turkey Parmesan Meatballs

It’s officially 2014 and for the second year in a row I’m not succumbing to the typical diet resolution.  After years of failed New Year’s Resolutions I decided to concentrate on something else besides dieting or working out.  I am keeping the same one from last year as well (boring I know).  As I...

the best of 2013

(Photo credit: Therese Barrett Photography Lubbock)  I can’t believe that 2013 has come to an end!  There are so many things that happened this past year and maybe thats why I felt like it went by so fast for our family. Olivia was just a month or two old when my mom had a...
