Traditions
I love figuring out new traditions to make with my own little family. I definitely found one for General Conference on Sunday morning. My sis-in-law (SIL) Dana was telling me about how often she goes to my friend Hannah's blog and tries out her recipes. She was telling me about all the yummy ones she has tried, including the sticky bun breakfast ring and told me I had to try it. So I decided this morning was the best time to make them while I had the LDS General Conference playing in the background. Let me just say WOW! My Aubri said while eating her sticky bun, "these are so yummy mom!" If you haven't already, you need to check out my beautiful and talented friend Hannah's blog! **If you aren't on Pinterest yet, please let me know and I'll send you an invite. Here is the recipe with my results in pictures: (hopefully it tempts you to try it!) Sticky Bun Breakfast Ring 2 small tubes refrigerator buttermilk biscuits OR 1 tube Pillsbury Grands buttermilk biscuits 3 Tbsp. butter, melted

No Sugar Oat Drops When I first saw this recipe I was intrigued by the fact that these have NO sugar, butter, eggs or anything that can be considered unhealthy. Always on the hunt for things to throw at my kids at feeding time, I gave them a whirl. They are amazing, surprisingly light, incredibly filling and tasty, you can mix and match the ingredients to get a different result each time, adding different seeds fruits or nuts.You can freeze them wrapped individually and have a easy breakfast on the go.

Copy Cat Recipe – Auntie Anne’s Pretzels Make sure to PIN this recipe Button is right over there or REPIN Save your money and make Auntie Anne’s Pretzels at Home S'mores Cookies Yesterday was busy with swimming, BBQing, and relaxing. My Laundry Monday turned into Laundry Tuesday topped with an additional load of damp swimming towels. Being the good parents we are we counted swimming as baths for the kids and sent them to bed smelling of sunblock. Then as I snuggled on the couch to write a post about these cookies I brought to our BBQ I just…could not…keep…my eyes…open. *Snooze* These S’mores Cookies are a perfect hello to summer. Dessert Recipe: No-Bake Boston Cream Pie Strata Cookbook Recipe But even with making your own homemade pudding from scratch, this recipe doesn't take more than an hour to put together, and then it is all done. Since it needs to be refrigerated before serving, it's the perfect thing to make ahead of time for a dinner party. I love making this the night before a big party, or even the morning of. People always go wild for it. If you want to really take it over the top, you can always make homemade graham crackers too!

Meatless Mondays: Mozzarella, Tomato and Avocado Salad Mozzarella, Tomato and Avocado Salad Ingredients 1 container cherry tomatoes, cut in half Buttermilk Blueberry Breakfast Cake I swear buttermilk is magic. I’ve dwelled on this before. Buttermilk seems to turn everything to gold. Super-moist, super-delicious gold. Anyway, I needed a simple, summery, breakfasty, cake-like-but-not-dessert-like recipe to make this morning. One of Ben’s friends had crashed here last night, and I thought it only appropriate to treat him to a proper breakfast. Sour Patch Grapes {Leprachaun Candy} My sister-in-law Ashley told me about an idea she saw on Pinterest for Sour Patch Grapes. I went out that day and bought what I needed to try them out: Green grapes and Green Jello. Since St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner I thought it was fitting to call them Leprechaun Candy. I’m not usually one to buy sour candy. Like at the movies, I never buy the Sour Patch Kids or Mike n Ike’s, I buy the chocolate.

Deep Dish Fruit Pizza My sister-in-law Missy first introduced me to the concept of fruit pizza years and years ago, and here’s how: she brought one to my house and I proceeded to eat the whole thing. But it was small. And I was nursing. My mammary glands made me do it. I whipped up a whopper of a fruit pizza a couple of weeks ago using my good ol’ standby sugar cookie recipe…and it was so darn good in such a naughty, naughty way. Feel free to halve the recipe below and press into a smaller pan, or just split the full recipe in half and roll out two thinner pizzas. Cinnamon Swirl Bread I made this bread late at night and poured a glaze on top to intensify it even more. I knew there was a problem before cutting into it because it was sunken in the middle. I found out that the innards of the bread were not fully cooked. I went back to the website to see what others had said about the cake, and they mentioned that the gooey center was the best part, but my cake was a bit too gooey. I heated the cake up more, which caused the sides of the bread to burn even more and the top of the bread to form an extra layer of crust from the glaze I had put on before.

P.F. Chang's Lettuce Wraps Recipe P.F. Chang’s Lettuce Wraps copycat recipe tastes just like the real thing – but is a whole lot healthier! So I failed to tell you the entire culinary story of Ben’s and my Vegas Vacation… idaho sunrise part two I thought this little treat up yesterday and had to make it today. So, here is is~hot from the oven and onto the site! It was YUMMY! And great if you don’t happen to have baked potatoes for the original Idaho sunrise. What are they? Frosted bake shop This cake reminds me of summer. My parents always have a great garden in the summer and give me lots of zucchini. I love to make zucchini bread and when my mom gave me this recipe about 7 years ago, I knew it would be good too. I have been making it ever since.
