Pumpkin Blossom Kiss Cookies

This time of year, it takes strength to not put pumpkin in everything I make. I can’t help it. I love the taste of pumpkin. It tastes like fall to me. Here in Texas our leaves don’t see a lot of vibrant colors so I will take fall however I can get it.

Loving pumpkin so much, it’s a good thing one of my favorite things to do is bake goodies for other people. Usually it’s family or coworkers but sometimes I like to take something sweet to local firefighters. They are always so grateful to receive something unexpected.

Being on Weight Watchers, I can’t always eat a lot of what I bake. So the sooner I can get it out of my kitchen the better for me. Unfortunately for my waistline, I ate one (or two) of these blossom cookies from each cookie sheet as they came out of the oven. All in the name of quality control, of course.

The firefighters I took these to here locally were so sweet and thankful for these treats. Make up a batch for your local emergency personnel. It will do your heart good.

Sunday Egg Thingy

A while back I posted a recipe for Dr. Phil’s Sunday Eggy Thing – a recipe he made on the Rachael Ray show. At the time I had never fried a flour tortilla so I made my version with a corn tortilla.

I finally did the flour tortilla fry thing for these fish tacos and oh em gee they were amazing. So this past weekend I had some tortillas left over from Saturday’s dinner so I went for it. And am I ever glad I did.

These are a perfect Sunday morning breakfast or brunch item. You can top it with your favorite sauce, salsa or leave it plain like I did. Dr. Phil uses Soy Sauce but I like plain salt and pepper. Divine.

Fish Taco @addicted2recipe

It’s time for another #ReadingFoodie book review. I purchased Groundswell over a year ago and thought I’d read it right away. It sat, literally, on my coffee table for months until one rainy day when all I wanted to do was read a good book. This book first intrigued me because it was authored by Katie […]

Pecan & Brie Bites @addicted2recipe

So last month I went to a dinner for work and had some of the best food ever. (Read about it here.) And one of the things I ate was a Brie Bite. Oh. My. It tasted just like a mini pecan pie. Only it wasn’t. I went back for seconds of this one. Ok […]

BBQ Glazed Pork Steaks

BBQ Glazed Pork Steaks

Why didn’t I know how great pork steaks were? Seriously. I love me a good bone-in pork chop but a pork steak? Honey, please. Paired with a mild BBQ sauce and it is finger licking good. Now that summer is over, it doesn’t mean you have to give up that BBQ flavor. You can make […]

Two-Bean Chili

2 Bean Chili

We got a little cold front here a couple of weeks ago and the temperatures dropped into the 70s. Of course that meant I had to make some chili. The weather called for it after all. Some chili purists insist that chili does not have beans. Me, I love it both ways. My preference is […]

Pumpkin Pie Spice Snickerdoodles

Pumpkin Pie Spice Snickerdoodles Cookies

Fall is my absolute favorite season. I’m not sure if it’s because of the cooler weather, the pumpkin treats, the fun things to do, or the changing of the leaves. Since I live in Texas, our leaves don’t really change but all the other stuff we have! I usually start wanting to eat anything pumpkin […]

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dressing – #ReadingFoodie: Happiness Sold Separately

Slow Cooker Cornbread and Chicken

This past weekend was a rainy, sloppy mess. It was the kind of weekend you just want to curl up and read a book. So I did just that. I went searching through the hundreds of books I have in my bedroom that I have yet to read. This one by Lolly Winston, Happiness Sold […]
