Welcome back to another week at the Teach Me Tuesday Linky Party! I hope all ya’ll had an awesome extended weekend. We didn’t do much more than enjoy each other’s company and swim most of the weekend. Our temps are still getting up to the 100 degree mark! I sure can’t wait for winter! Just


Slow Cooker Peanut Clusters

If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time you know how much I LOVE my slow cooker. It is THE best kitchen appliance I own. Slow cooker recipes are a person’s (my) way of making delicious meals without doing much more than throwing everything in a pot, walking away from said pot


Lemon Cake

This lemon cake is another recipe that I make using my homemade baking mix. (If you’ve missed the other four recipes I’ll have a link to them added to the bottom of this post). It is a very dense cake and it is full of lemon flavor. With our heat index pushing 115° the past

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

I’ve been seeing pumpkin recipes popping up all over the blog world the past week or so and although my kids and I love pumpkin anytime of year it’s unusual to start seeing these recipes until fall. I figured since this pumpkin chocolate chip bread is one of the recipes I was going to share


Cheesy Bowties with Mushrooms and Green Onions

I love a good side dish that compliments the rest of my meal. I also love a good side dish that is quick to throw together. These cheesy bowties with mushrooms and green onions are both of those things. It quite literally takes only as long as the pasta water to come to a boil


Pear Cobbler

The pear tree is finally ready for picking! Woohoo! I’ve been waiting on this ALL summer. Not only is this Pear Cobbler recipe one of my favorite desserts, it’s also #2 on my list of recipes to share with you using my homemade baking mix. The two hardest parts about making this cobbler is (1)
