Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins

 This week has been rough.  I got summoned for jury duty and then selected, I had a midterm exam for one of my classes, I got behind on blogging, and I had a few things happen in my personal life that added some stress.  Sometimes life is rough.  But on this Saturday morning, I’m feeling […]

Cheddar Biscuits

If I could live in my PJ pants, I probably would.  Putting on “real” pants is always the worst part about getting up in the morning, and as soon as I get home from work I switch to my PJ pants.  On weekends, I’ll lounge around in them as long as I can.  I know […]

Step by Step Guide for Making Yeast Breads

Today I failed at making a crock pot soup.  They said it couldn’t be done!  Unfortunately, I’m here to tell you that something as easy as a crock pot soup recipe can go horribly wrong.  It started when I wanted my corn soup to be a little spicier and a little creamier.  The result was […]

Calzones

Calzone recipes are good for a lot of things (like filling hungry bellies), but they were especially handy last week.  I was traveling for work for a few days.  It was exciting because it was my first business trip and I felt super official plus I was going to Washington and got to see a […]

Nazooks

I apologize in advanced.  I held out on you.  I didn’t post this recipe for a VERY long time.  There’s this thing called the Daring Kitchen and they have a division called the Daring Bakers.  They have one recipe a month all the members make and post about on the same day.  You have to do it […]

Empanadas

I have a confession for you.  I’ve never actually had an empanada.  It seems like something I’d love, right?  Delicious goodies baked in a pocket of love and bread.  It’s right up my alley!  Somehow, I just never had one.  I’ve been on a little bit of a Mexican food kick so I decided to […]

Honey Wheat Pretzels

Wow, things have been busy here.  I’ve been working full time, I had two tests since I last posted, and I visited my sister in Atlanta.  Whew.  Luckily, it’s the weekend and I’ve FINALLY had time to make something worthy of posting.  Pretzels!  Since I’ve been so bad about posting, I also included a recipe […]

Naan

Some failures, I post about here (like how I failed and then succeed at making my own pasta).   Other failures make me sad and so I just pretend they never happened and don’t post about them.  I failed at making naan (twice) and never posted here about it because it was just so sad. […]
