Perfectly Fluffy Blueberry Muffins

Wednesday, October 16, 2013


I look outside and see that the leaves on the trees are changing from Green to shades of Reds, Yellows and Oranges. I feel the slight chill in the air and I just know that today is a day for home-made blueberry muffins. I don’t know what is better: The delicious smell of muffins cooking in the oven that fills the air, or the delicious taste of the hot fluffy muffins melting in your mouth with occasional bursts of blueberry goodness.  The recipe I use is one I grew up with so along with the wonderful taste are many memories of having my mother make these very same muffins for us children. I am grateful for the ability to pass this tradition of homemade goodness on to my children. Hopefully they too will someday make these same muffins for their children on Cool Autumn days.

Freezer Friendly Friday: Easy & Yummy Mexican Lasagna! Crowd Pleaser!

Friday, July 26, 2013


Good luck sticking this one in the freezer before it's gobbled up!

This would make a great meal for a party, and you will have it in your freezer ready to go!

That is one thing that I am loving about freezer meals; anytime I have unexpected guests I just toss one into the oven and I have food for everyone!

This amount of ingredients feeds 4-5 people - you can alter to make a bigger batch.


Corn tortillas-start with 10, but you may need more
1 can enchilada sauce
1 can corn
1 can black or kidney beans
2 cups ground beef- precooked and seasoned with taco seasoning
2 cups shredded cheese


In a bowl, mix your ground beef, beans, corn and 1 cup of the cheese.
In the bottom of an 8x8 casserole dish, spread 1/4 cup enchilada sauce and layer tortillas until mostly covered. Spread about 1 cup of meat/bean mixture, and the repeat... enchilada sauce, meat/beans, tortillas. Once you have as many layers as you want, or have enough food for, top with any remaining enchilada sauce, and bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until sauce is bubbly. Remove and top with cheese, return to oven and continue to bake until cheese is melted.
Top with sour cream and enjoy!

Freezer Friendly Friday: How To Make 7 Days Of Breakfast In Less Than 30 Minutes!

Friday, July 12, 2013


If you are like me sometimes breakfast can get away from you.

I have a million things going on in the morning and by the time I realize breakfast should be one of those things, I just toss a bowl of cereal at my children. Laughing

I decided recently I wanted to have something on hand (other than cereal) to give my kiddos that would be easy.

And nothing gets easier than making breakfast freezer burritos!

Here is what you will need:

To make these super simple I use a package of Hormel Beef Roast. It's easy and sooo... YUMMY!

Now you can pretty much make these with any meat, cheese, whatever you want! That's what I love about these, they are so versatile!

:: 12 eggs

:: 1 package of Hormel

:: 1/4 c. milk

:: 1 Package of Southern Hash browns

:: Salt and Pepper for taste

For the tortillas you can make them from scratch or just buy a package of flour tortillas. I love making them from scratch.

You can see how to make these here.


:: Thaw your hash browns in the microwave and then fry them up.(I like to use a griddle)

:: Whisk your eggs and milk until you have scrambled eggs

:: Heat your Hormel to the instructions found on the package

:: Once everything is cooked start to assemble your burritos (don't overfill or they will be hard to fold)

:: Fold them and wrap them up! I use freezer paper to wrap mine and then I put them into a container.

My hubby is a folding guru, so I always have him fold. Wink He used to make a lot of origami so this is a piece of cake for him.

Once you want to eat your burritos just wrap them in a wet paper towel and heat for 3 minutes in the microwave.
