Nutella Apple Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Dear Miss Suzy,   I’m sorry that it had to end this way. You’ve been great for our family for the past two years and it all had to come to an end one afternoon. It was nice to see your effort a couple times a week in attempting to help us out. I...

Caramel Macchiato Pancakes with Syrup

As I’m sitting down thinking about yesterday’s current events I stop to ponder on what characteristics I possess and the ones I don’t excel at as well as others.   We all have this feeling or notion of what we perceive of ourselves.

Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken Rice Bowls
