“Up” Cake Pops

Spinach Artichoke Pasta

Delicious dinner last night courtesy of “The Pioneer Woman”, Ree Drummond.  I’m leaving Sunday for 5 weeks so I thought I’d better get in some cooking for the boys (that would be my husband Bob and son Zach) before I leave.  I’m going to Sicily and London for work so no cooking or baking for … Continue reading

Copycat Shamrock Shake

Had a fun activity night last night with my girls from church.  We got a jump on St Patrick’s Day by decorating some wood blocks (see picture) and by eating some St Pat’s themed treats.  First up, this knockoff of a McDonald’s Shamrock Shake.  The recipe comes from a blog called “No. 2 Pencil”.  It … Continue reading
