Pin It

Fall is in the air and that means PUMPKIN recipes coming your way by the zillions :)

I am so ready for the cool days and cold nights, sweaters, falling leaves, and all things Fall.

Fall is my favorite time of year. Especially all the pumpkin and apple recipes.

This year I made it my goal to make lots of new delicious recipes to bring to you.

Cinnamon Raisin Bagels


Pin It
I decided to try my hand at making homemade bagels a while ago because I was buying them fresh every few days for my family and everything tastes better when homemade, right?

Well they turned out pretty good and I've been making them ever since.

Homemade bread making seems intimidating but it really only takes patience and time.

It isn't any harder than baking cooking, you just need to make sure when you start that you have available the amount of time the whole recipe calls for.

Monkey Bread

Pin It
Have you ever tasted Monkey Bread? And by that I mean the real stuff not the one made with canned biscuits.

This is seriously one of the easiest and most delicious recipes ever!

I always thought Monkey Bread would take forever; making the dough and putting it together, but with a little foresight and a bag of Rhodes frozen dinner rolls you can have this whipped up in a couple of hours.

Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf


Pin It

I love lemon and I also love loaf bread, quick bread, loaf cake, etc.

So I decided to come up with a lemon loaf that also incorporated poppy seeds be lets face it most lemon loaf have poppy seeds in them and they go together like...well, lemon and poppy seed.

This is a quick and yummy treat you can eat for breakfast (I know this from experience, hehe) or dessert (like last night) or just to take as a quick snack as you're heading out the door.

Ice Cream Sandwiches

Pin It
Do you eat ice cream in the winter?

We do and it's just as delicious and refreshing as in the summer.

I decided to try a new way to eat my ice cream.  Well, not technically new to the world, but definitely new to my kitchen.

I made a few different kinds with different cookies and they were all amazing. 

I'm sure you'll have a favorite too.

Jumbo Peanut Butter Cookies


Pin It
Have you ever seen such a giant cookie?  Lol

These are my hubby's favorite cookies ever!

Not only are they a delicious peanut butter cookie, they are the size of a small frisbee! haha

I made these to use in my Ice Cream Sandwiches and realize that I used the same recipe as my Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies but I figure why not have the recipe with the exact directions for making the jumbo size too.
