Lemon Whipped Cream

Lemon Whipped Cream makes a light and citrusy topping for berries, waffles, pound cake, and more!

Needless to say, the kids are off their usual schedules and our family’s healthy eating efforts have kind of flown out the window. In fact, a certain 2-year-old may have come to expect a “treat” after every meal here lately, and consequently protests {Read More}

Snickerdoodle Mug Cake

Snickerdoodle Mug Cake bakes up in the microwave in just one minute, yielding a warm, cinnamon-sugary treat that will satisfy any sweet tooth!

Brown Butter Cinnamon Sugar Popcorn

Fresh popcorn is drizzled with brown butter and generously coated with cinnamon & sugar in this 5-minute, addictive snack that’s perfect for any occasion, from after school to movie night.

On top of that, all of those crevices are just perfect for soaking up your {Read More}

Classic Scottish Shortbread

Rich, buttery shortbread comes together with just five simple ingredients and is oven-ready in less than five minutes!

Cinnamon Sugar Candied Pecans

Toasty pecans with a crunchy, sweet, cinnamon-spiced coating are perfect for snacking, dressing up a salad, or holiday gift giving. Betcha’ can’t eat just one! I’ve never met a nut I didn’t like. But in Texas, pecans reign supreme, so that’s typically what I end up sprinkling over salads, incorporating into baked goods, or eating by the handful.
