French Toast with Homemade Strawberry Sauce – Recipe

French Toast with Homemade Strawberry Sauce (recipe follows) – French Toast is so delicious by itself, but add some homemade strawberry sauce and you have got something that’s really yummy! :D I love to make this for my family because it makes me feel like I spoil them. I’m not sure why, but they’re always super impressed when I make syrup or these types of sauces from scratch. I guess it’s because most people reach for the bottled kind. It’s really easy to make them at home though. In fact, I can make the whole family (all 7 of us) breakfast-sauce/syrup...

The Best Potato Skins! – Recipe

Potato skins are one of my very favorite junk foods. :D! They are sooooo gooood, and you can fill them with whatever you happen to have in the fridge! This is a great way to get rid of left overs too, especially meat and veggies! We have a family junk food night about once a month and these are often included. They are also really great for big get togethers because they can be assembled ahead of time and refrigerated or even frozen and then baked as needed. When I make them I always try to make a few extra and freeze them for my son. He is a 16 year old eating machine and this gives him...

Christmas Cookies – Recipe

Christmas Cookies – Recipe

Christmas Cookies – For this recipe, I’m going to give you two different versions. To be honest, they taste almost exactly the same. Why am I giving you two versions that taste the same? One is a healthier whole wheat and low sugar version and one is a more traditional version. I make the whole wheat for my family, but I know some people are going to want the white flour version they grew up with. Again, I would like to say that they taste almost identical (my kids ate both when I was testing these recipes and didn’t even notice). So even though they’re both my...

Pumpkin Eggnog (pumpkin eggnog recipe with instructions and video tutorial follow)- Eggnog is a Christmas time tradition in our house as I’m sure it is in many of yours. It is also something that we go through by the gallon which I’m sure you can imagine with 5 children and 2 adults in the house. Everyone has their favorite too. My Son and I love the pumpkin eggnog (especially in coffee, think pumpkin latte), my oldest daughter and our three year old love traditional eggnog, our 12 year old daughter loves chocolate eggnog (difficult to find in stores), my husband needs soy for his...
