The tropical pack is one of my favorites. I open it and the smell immediately transports me to far off beaches filled with refreshing flavors and cool breezes. I will admit though, it is also one of the most intimidating packs for me. Each item seems like it takes special […]
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bread
I’m not much of a sweets fan. I prefer savory and crunchy, actually, but when I wandered across a variation of this dessert bread I thought that sounds tasty, and I’ll bet I can make it a little more organic and healthier if I make it with ingredients from Bountiful […]
No Churn Grapefruit Gelato
I had never seen a green grapefruit! (If you read my blog posts, that probably doesn’t surprise you). But what may surprise you is that my husband who is a daily grapefruit eater, hasn’t either! So I do what I normally do when I don’t know how to use something. […]
Pumpkin Cookie Tiramisu with Fresh Apple Cider
I honestly believe everyone who has a love and passion for cooking has an art form in the kitchen. Like The Monet – that is beauty to your eyes. It touches parts of your heart and soul. There isn’t much in this world that can beat a good meal. Unlike The […]

Pomegranate Apple Crisp

Growing up I remember my mom canning different fruits and veggies. Over the last few years, I have enjoyed learning how to can and make yummy salsa, jams and this year I did these super easy honeyed peaches! I love a good sweet peach and the honey added to them […]
Caramel Apple Pie
I must add a disclaimer….. I am not known as the “pie maker” in our family. For that title, you will need to go to my aunt Ellen or my cousin Becky. They have been baking pies that have been pleasing our family for years! From them, I did learn […]
Pears, Pears, and more Pears!
My family loves pears, so when the case of Bartlett pears was available I was sure to get one! I have made crock pot applesauce before and my family was in love with it! It tastes SO much better than regular applesauce that you can buy at the store. I […]
