There is nothing better than a nice relaxing Sunday morning, except a relaxing sunday morning with homemade cinnamon rolls!
You would think that homemade cinnamon rolls would be a ton of work and then there would be no more relaxing Sunday morning, but fear not. These cinnamon rolls are a cinch to make and can be in your belly in no time!
Here’s how I made them…
Mix ingredients together to form the dough.
Roll out the dough, slather the dough with softened butter, and generously add the cinnamon and brown sugar.
Roll the dough and cinnamon sugar mixture into a log and seal the edges.
Cut dough log into even pieces and let rise until doubled in size.
This past week was the best of both worlds for me. Fresh spring-time sweet corn and 2 days of rain.
I’ve been wanting to make corn chowder for sometime now, but the weather has been in the 80’s lately and I knew my family would not be happy with a bowl of warm soup for dinner. Now was my time…
To get that depth of flavor, I place the cleaned corn on a baking sheet and in the oven on broil it goes until the corn browns a bit. Once the corn is cool enough to handle cut the corn off the cob. Continue reading →
If you are anything like me LA VICTORIA® Brand is a staple in your home. I like LA VICTORIA® Brand because of the delicious taste of their salsas & hot sauces, but I also love what the brand stands for. Did you know that they support hands-on education that teaches kids where their food comes from with a day of gardening; the connection of the food and the earth leads to healthy eating habits and a appreciation for food.

Once a month my family has a binge watch Sunday. We decide a head of time what we want to binge watch and then plan the menu items we will want to snack on throughout the day. Most of the time it’s Jeopardy, we keep score and everything, we save up all the episodes for the month and then do a marathon. Continue reading →
Whenever Handsome and I are invited to a friend’s home for dinner I always offer to bring the dessert. Recently, we were invited to high school buddy of my Handsome’s. When the four of us are together I know there will be tons of laughs, we always have a great time with them and look forward to getting together.
This was the first time I had been over to their home. Wow! AD (the wife) is such a talented decorator, I had no idea. Her home is incredible and she did it all herself. I’m hoping I can get her to agree for me to do a photo shoot of her home (if she agrees, I will be putting the photo’s on my Its All About The Pretty Blog home tour section) just so you all can see it! HGTV needs to give her a show! Really!!!
Back to dessert… I decided to make an apple cinnamon streusel cake to bring over to their home. It is a coffee cake recipe of my mom’s that I decided to add apples to. It turned out great. In fact, D (the husband) had seconds before the rest of us were half way through our first piece. It was so yummy I made another one the very next day so my family could enjoy it. Ever since, my family has been asking me to make it again.
Why reserve Taco Tuesday just for dinner time tacos? Serve these delicious breakfast tacos any day of the week!
These breakfast tacos are so easy I’m almost embarrassed to be writing them as a recipe, but they are so delicious I didn’t want to keep them all to myself! Ever since I first made them I’ve been eating them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They’re that good.
The two things that can elevate these breakfast tacos even more is to use this homemade salsa recipe and this homemade refried beans recipe. I like to make a big pot of the refried beans and keep them in my freezer for when I’m short on time to make dinner…or just for these tacos (maybe I am eating way to many of them).
8 slices of bacon cut in half and cooked to the crispiness you prefer
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
2 green onions, sliced
8 taco size flour tortillas
Restaurant style salsa, see recipe link in post.
Wrap tortillas in foil and place in a 350 degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until warmed through.
In a medium size bowl add the eggs and milk and whisk to combine, then add the salt, pepper and dried cilantro.
Using a non-stick pan over medium heat, add butter. When butter is completely melted add egg mixture gently stirring with a spatula until just about completely cook. Take eggs off the heat and set aside. They will continue to cook.
*To Assemble Tacos*
Spread a large tablespoon of beans in the center of the warm flour tortilla, then top with an ⅛ of the eggs, bacon, cheese, green onion, and salsa. Repeat with each flour tortilla
I’m obsessed! I can’t stop making and eating spinach basil pesto!
It is so easy to make..why not make it tonight?
Do you know what the beauty of pesto is? Besides all the deliciously healthy ingredients? You can swap any number of ingredients and still have a delicious tasting pesto. Now, we all know the traditional pesto is made with mostly basil, but I wanted to add some vitamin packed greens to my family’s dinner with spinach. So I swapped out about 80% of the basil for spinach. You can even use 100% spinach if you choose. I don’t usually have pine nuts in the house so I prefer to use sliced almonds.
I leave my pesto a little on the chunky side. I like the texture, but if you prefer a smooth consistency, pluse away!
