Frosted Christmas Cutout Cookies blog post with picture of a plate of festive cookies

I am a big Christmas lover! I love it so much that I tell people I’m part elf. Once November hits, the Christmas music starts in my house and by mid-November, my halls are decked and full of holiday spirit. Of course, you can’t have holidays without special holiday foods!

Grilled Peaches

May 22, 2019

In the summertime when the heat is high, no one wants to be in the kitchen cooking! Here in South Carolina when the temperatures are in the mid to upper 90’s I will not turn on my oven! I don’t even like to use the stovetop if I don’t have to! It just heats up my little house too quickly! So if you’re in need of a great…

Hawaiian Banana Bread

This banana bread is an absolute family favorite. It is so loved by my family that not only did my Mom fix it to go with great fall and winter weeknight meals, but it was a must-have for holidays like Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter as well.

Crustless No Bake Cheesecakes

July 13, 2014

Summertime is a great time for nice, cooling desserts. But traditional cheesecake forces you to have to turn on the oven and heat up your kitchen and your house! The great news is that you can make an easy crustless no-bake cheesecake using gelatin, that is quick and simple to make, but won’t heat up your kitchen. ¬†And you don’t have to worry about store-bought no-bake cheesecake mixes…
