White Chocolate Amaretto Cheesecake

For two years I’ve been drooling over this Cheesecake. I decided it was high time I actually make it! So I did! It’s every bit as good as it looks. If you love cheesecake as much as I love cheesecake…you need to make this masterpiece! I think my husband may have made himself sick on this cheesecake he ate so much of it. (That my friends is an endorsement you can take to the bank!) Oh…and don’t let the Amaretto scare you off! Remember you can always “bring a cup of it to a boil to bake off the alcohol, if you don’t drink, and all you’re left with is the warm rich flavors of Amaretto. I do this all the time and leave a container of it in my spice cupboard for baking…

Fresh Strawberry Pie

I truly LOVE fresh fruit pies. I think I love them even more than baked fruit pies? Hmmmm? (I may need to get back to you on that!) Any who…I am slightly giddy over this fresh strawberry pie. It’s just like Mom made. (Mom if this isn’t your recipe do NOT crush my illusions) It is as delicious as it looks. I know it was all over Facebook last week and I knew the minute I saw it, I was going to make it. It’s the perfect Mother’s Day dessert. Mom’s love eating fresh fruit in pie… it’s guilt free cause it counts as one of our fruit servings! YES it does!!! (Course so are jelly fruit filled donuts…I’d use extreme caution when choosing to argue that point!) I think my new tag line will be… “Just saving husbands lives one tip at a time”! Enough of this…come check out this mouth-watering pie…

I know how busy spring time is for the Moms of budding athletes. This is a great easy recipe for your busy week ahead…

There’s nothing worse than ordering an omelette and having the out side crispy brown and tough! Yet so many restaurants seem to serve them that way!

Pulled Pork Sandwiches With Classic Cole Slaw

I have a love-hate relationship with BBQ. Which is why I created this delicious slow cooker pulled pork sandwich. It’s my “go-to” recipe for large Family Parties or Summer BBQ’s. The classic coleslaw on top of the pulled pork, combined with the BBQ sauce, makes for one AMAZING juicy lip smacking sandwich! You’re gonna love it…and so will the relatives! Hope ya don’t mind them hanging around…lol…

Kicked Up Ultimate Boxed Brownies

I admit it! I’ve always been a Boxed Brownie snob. I was convinced that there was no way a boxed brownie mix could ever be better than my homemade brownies. It just wasn’t possible. Then one day…Ol’ Betty and I had a little get together. What happened next was nothing short of AMAZING…
