Whipped Cranberry Butter Recipe

Whipped Cranberry Butter Recipe is an Easy and Delicious Cranberry Recipe

We are finally at the end of August here in Georgia and were blessed with a morning in the 60's last week.  That might not sound exciting to you but I am so sick of the heat and humidity that I actually DREAM about leaves falling off trees and opening up my windows again.  One of my favorite foods to enjoy during the fall is the tiny and oh so tart cranberry.  It is such an incredibly versatile food that I stock up every year at Thanksgiving when they go on sale.  Well, I am down to my last bag of cranberries so to make room for this years … [Read more...]

Nacho Cheese Popcorn Seasoning Recipe

Nacho Cheese Popcorn Seasoning for Delicious popcorn snacking

Many years ago I became suspicious of the ingredients in most traditional microwave popcorns.  The ingredient list was just a tad too long for my liking no matter how convenient those little packages were.  I invested in a hot air popcorn popper and am now much happier about my popcorn snacking habit.  Of course, hot air popcorn with nothing on it tastes rather bland.  Sure, plain might be healthier but my mouth craves the flavor of popcorn seasoning every once in a while.  If you are trying to include more healthy snacks in your diet, popcorn … [Read more...]

Buttermilk Ranch Chicken Tenders Recipe with Rice Chex™ cereal

Buttermilk Ranch Chicken Tenders Recipe with Chex 2

This Buttermilk Ranch Chicken Tenders Recipe is brought to you by CafeMom and Chex™.  All opinions expressed here are my own. Children are a wonderful gift, however they can also be incredibly frustrating to feed. I have always been a 'cook from scratch' kind of mom.  The idea of feeding kids neon orange boxed macaroni and cheese and premade, frozen peanut butter and jelly sandwiches is rather appalling.  A walk down the frozen food aisle will showcase a number of 'kid friendly premade food products'.  Most of them are loaded with food … [Read more...]

Lemon Zucchini Cake Recipe

Easy Lemon Zucchini Cake Recipe 2

A few days ago, I was out in the garden and discovered a huge zucchini.  It was the first of the season and had tried to hide from me under the leaves.  My children were less than thrilled when I brought my giant zucchini into the house.  It is not their favorite vegetable!  I decided to check out Pinterest to see if there were any unique zucchini recipes that my children would enjoy.  I stumbled upon a ton of zucchini recipes that I want to try but the one I chose for this weekend was a lemon zucchini cake recipe with a lemon glaze on … [Read more...]
