We all know the holidays are the time of year when we’re on a baking frenzy. Moms, you know what I’m talking about. You’re baking cookies, cakes, pies, and anything else you can think of for family, friends, kids, and co-workers. I know it’s great to keep traditions alive by making the same recipes each year, but sometimes you just get the urge to switch it up.
Crock pots have so many uses, especially around the holidays. They can serve as another “oven”, keep things warm while you are busy preparing other dishes, or serve up the best hot beverages ever tasted. Spice up your holidays with this amazing recipe for Divine Holiday Tea (made in a crock pot). It’s perfect to serve at a holiday party or get together with the adults in your life. The sweetened condensed milk is awesome with the chai spices!
There is a local restaurant near us that makes the most delicious chicken pot pie, I order it every time we eat there! Last spring we ended up ordering dinner to-go from this restaurant, and of course, I ordered my usual chicken pot pie. That’s when I discovered it wasn’t actually a pot pie–it was a puff pastry with the usual pot pie filling poured over the top! That’s when I thought…oh I can totally do that!
So I bought puff pastry that next week at the grocery store. Did you notice that I said this happened last spring? I kept thinking about it, and not making it. I don’t really know why. I even tried searching to find a recipe like what I wanted to create and I couldn’t find one! Last night I finally decided to go for it and the results were fantastic! Read More

Hola Amigos! We all know Thanksgiving is that time of the year when we officially give thanks for all the blessings we have received all year long. We’re thankful for our health, we are thankful for our friends and family and for the happy, joyous times we have shared all these months! But let’s face it, it can be stressful too—all the cooking, the cleaning, the tidying up, people staying over messing with your stuff, the eternal house decor critic, your in-laws not quite happy with your stuffing, the nosy aunt trying to teach you how to raise your kids…and too many to mention without getting palpitations right? So on Thanksgiving we are thankful for some “High Octane Encouragement!!!” Lol Read More
Caden’s grandmother gave me this recipe years ago, which has been in her family for many years. Moist and bursting with flavor, these pumpkin bars are easy to make and the recipe is pretty much fail proof. The frosting is not too overpowering (some people do not like a strong cream cheese flavor) – adding a nice texture to an already perfect treat. Enjoy a bar with a hot cup of seasonal coffee or a chai latte with a hint of cinnamon. Oh yum! Read More
