Classic Gingerbread Cookies

Recently I’ve been talking a lot about the beauty of simplicity and why we should strive to make our busy lives and to-do lists a lot simpler around the Christmas season. Making Christmas cookies is a favorite tradition of mine, and I can bet it’s one of your favorites as well. Usually, during the holidays…

Pecan Pie Baked Oatmeal Cups

Baking in the kitchen around this time of year usually leads to something sweet to eat. With an abundance of cookies, pies, cakes, and sweet rolls, there is no shortage of dessert when the Holidays are near.

Easy Strawberry Dump Cake

Summertime desserts are among some of my very favorites because they usually involve some sort of fresh fruit. Berries are a great go-to during the season because of their peak freshness and easy accessibility in the grocery stores.

“Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones”

Happy Fall Y’all, we are just now beginning to see a drop in our 100 degree weather. Evening walks with our dog, Winston finally calls for a light sweater, but I would be crazy to say that I need boots when going outside. Regardless of the weather outside, when the calendar turns it’s page to…

“Oatmeal Apple Pie Bars”

I think it’s safe to say, “Happy Fall Y’all” in Texas. The cooler weather finally decided to come knocking at the door, and when I say cooler weather I really mean a temperature drop to 80 degree weather instead of 99 degrees. Southern girls get a little ahead of ourselves this time of year, there…

“Strawberry Chia Seed Jam”

Summer is coming to a close, but Fall is not quite here yet. It’s the awkward in-between stage of wondering when it’s socially acceptable to bring the fall decor down from the attic.
