Easy Rosemary Garlic Parmesan Rolls

I hope that you all had a great weekend.  It rained here all weekend…but that is okay because we need the water.   I did not have to go out and water all of my pots, so that was a bonus!    We have had two of our grandsons staying here with us and they have been so fun to have.  I will give you a recap of what we have done in the next post!

Today I have a great

My Lemon Pie Flop

Last Sunday, for Easter, I decided that I would make a Lemon Meringue Pie for dessert.  It was only my husband and I because we had had the whole family the week before.  I am trying to be good with what I eat and I only try to have sugar one day a week.   I made the whole thing from scratch and my mouth was watering, this was going to be a real treat for us!

But this is how it turned out!:lemon pie flop Continue reading

French Baguette Bread

One of my finds at Swiss Days this year was a baguette bread pan from the Food Nanny!  I have been making baguette bread on a cookie sheet and it works fine, but the baguette pan gives your bread the rounded bottom and it put the design of the holes on the bottom!

Toasted-Pecan Coconut Blondies

I am not sure what it is about the Autumn time…that just makes me want to start baking again!  Maybe it is just the fact the air is cooler now and so I feel like I can turn my oven on again, or that the kids are back in school and I get myself back into somewhat of a routine too, but whatever it is that gets me going, I am thankful for it…because I really do love to bake!  And It just is not fall without recipes that call for pumpkin, apples, or caramel!

Pantry Shopping List

I don’t know about you, but in the summertime when it is hot, I don’t really like to spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking meals…so I always like to stock my pantry, so that I can usually pull a meal together in no time at all!  Really I like to have my pantry stocked all of the time, but for some reason I tend to do it better in the summer time!

I decided that for my post today I would share a pantry shopping list that I put together:
