Pumpkin Pecan Cinnamon Rolls

Pin It

To me there's nothing better than the smell of yeast bread rising and baking in the house.

Add to that yumminess the flavor of pumpkin and pecans and it smells absolutely heavenly when these babies are baking.

I have found that a good cinnamon roll is rather easy to make.  It just takes time and patience and a great stand mixer to do most of the work!

Sweet & Sour Chicken

Pin It

I have been trying my hand at perfecting an assortment of Asian inspired dishes.

After trying several store bought sauces I decided it would be so much better to make some homemade ones.

Sweet and Sour sauce is one of the sauces I worked on for a while before mastering.

Well I've perfected it and boy is this one delicious!

This would pair perfectly with plain white rice, my Fried Rice or even my P.F. Chang's Copycat Garlic Noodles for a quick weeknight dinner.

Crock Pot Apple Spice Cake

Pin It

This is literally the easiest and most delicious dessert I've made in my crock pot yet.

I found this new page on Facebook called Tasty and they have some of the easiest recipes out there. This one is adapted from one of Tasty's recipes.

Apple Pie Spice

Pin It

One of my favorite things about Fall and Winter are all the wonderful smells of baking.

I love using homemade spice mixes in all my baking at this time of year.

Pepperoni Pizza Pull-Apart Bread

Pin It

I am always looking for new appetizers and snacks to serve during the football season and what better food than pizza?

I always seem to have a loaf or two of Bridgford's ready bake white bread loaves in my freezer just waiting to be made into something scrumptious.

Pumpkin Streusel Muffins

Pin It
Here is the second of the delicious pumpkin muffins I have made lately and they are just as yummy as the first recipe.

The difference is that these have a streusel topping where as the others have a cinnamon sugar topping.

They are both perfect for breakfast on a cold Fall morning with a steaming cup of tea or coffee or an ice cold glass of milk.

P.F. Chang's Copycat Garlic Noodles

Pin It

We LOVE P.F. Chang's restaurant!  They have the best Kung Pao Chicken, Lettuce Wraps, Mongolian Beef, etc. as I'm sure you all know.  But have you tried their Garlic Noodles yet?

My daughter's best friend ordered them one night when we were there and we also ordered the regular Lo Mein that we always do.

So when dinner arrived I decided to TRY the garlic noodles knowing I wouldn't like them as much as the other ones.  Well let me tell you how wrong I was!  lol  I LOVED the garlic noodles and have been ordering them ever since.

Crock Pot Cashew Chicken

Pin It

So today I was on Pinterest , again, looking up recipes to use in my new "smaller" crock pot when I remembered that my awesome nail lady Anh said while she and her boyfriend were checking out my blog they noticed there weren't a whole lot of Asian inspired recipes.

Hi Anh!  This one's for you :)

So what better place than Pinterest to find a bunch of yummy recipes to try.

Back to the crock pots......

Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Muffins

Pin It

I am all about Fall right now and all the yummy pumpkin recipes I can create and share.

I have been making quiet a few new yummies and I'm sharing them with you :)

I love a good pumpkin muffin in the morning and these are scrumptious.

I have 2 new recipes that are similar and depending on if you like cinnamon sugar or a streusel topping you can decide which ones to make.  I think they are both amazing.
