Simple, Edible Spring Flowers

When we have holidays, I like to try to make something cute, creative, and unique. Some are wins, and some are big losers! I guess this is the nature of Pinterest!

A few weeks ago, a friend at school was warming up part of her lunch, and pretty soon the whole teacher’s room smelled like delicious cinnamon and apples!

Stuffing Balls

Every year for Christmas and Easter dinner, my mom makes stuffing balls. I only recently began eating them. I am not a huge stuffing fan…I know some people who live for stuffing during holiday meals! When I lived at home with my parents, many times I would help my mom make the stuffing balls. I enjoyed chopping vegetables, so I…

Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies

I posted this recipe on my first blog site, but when I transferred my posts over to this website, this recipe did not come along.  But it is too good to pass up, so I thought I would write a second post about it! I love the combination of coffee and chocolate.  Mocha drinks are delicious, and so are cookies,…
