I've been itching to do some baking lately and I do believe heart cookie sandwiches are just the ticket!

I wouldn't be the mommy I am today without her love and guidance! And what better way to say I love...

This red, white and blue fruit parfait is a fun and festive way to kick off your weekend of Olympic watching! Red, White and Blue Fruit Parfait I am a huge fan of the Olympics.

Perfectly Pear Champagne Cocktail

Pear Champagne Cocktail

While I don't get to entertain as much as I used to, I'm a firm believer in greeting guests with a festive cocktail when they walk through the door. Typically I vote for only planning to start the party with a specialty drink. You can easily switch to beer and wine but something about starting off with a cocktail just gets the party going. This pear champagne cocktail is a great way to celebrate fall flavors. The bubbles also balance so well with the delicate tastes of pear. It's easy to make and will still...

Fall Snack, Fancy Apple Slices

Fancy Apple Slices

No matter what age they are, kids have a pretty long day when they are in school. Focusing and paying attention and doing all the things that happen at school is a lot on them from pre-school to high school. And right now in these early weeks of a new school year I try to be extra compassionate. You know how you feel after the first days of starting a new job? You're exhausted just from trying so hard to be extra nice and know your way around. Same goes for them! We start Kindergarten...

This frozen strawberry pie, featuring Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk, is easy to make and can be made ahead and left in the freeze until you are ready to serve it to your guests.

Stress Free Dinners with Gobble

Gobble Dinner Cards

I used to love to make dinner. And then I had two rowdy boys. I still really love to cook but it has become way more of a challenge. I'm often trying to get dinner on the table before some sort of activity (tee ball has ruled our lives lately) and my husband is commuting home. I'm sure most of you are no stranger to the scene of trying to get a healthy, good quality meal together while kids run around you asking you questions and generally being loud and distracting. It's that time of...
