Pumpkin Carrot Canine Birthday Cake

We wanted to do something special for our puppy’s first birthday.  My daughter came up with idea for baking her a birthday cake. The nice thing about Golden Retrievers is that they are not picky eaters... at least ours isn’t.  She’s been know to scarf down rocks, tree bark, and swim goggles,…

Yep, I am a Doomscroller

I learned a new term yesterday.  Doomscroller.  Apparently I’ve been one over last few months. Here is how Miriam-Webster defines it: “Doomscrolling and doomsurfing are new terms…

Fresh Strawberry Pie

This is my favorite summer pie recipe. My grandma gave me this recipe years ago and it is my go-to whenever I have lots of fresh strawberries or blueberries.  Yep, the recipe works great with blueberries too.   I love this pie because it's very quick and easy to make.  Better…

Easy Graham Cracker Crust

There is just no comparing a store bought graham cracker crust to one that is home made. I will always go the extra mile to make my graham cracker crust from scratch because to me, it's just that much better.  Below is the easiest and quickest recipe to make your…
