Skinny Mini Mexican Fritatas

February 16, 2017

Skinny mini. I have not heard that expression in a long time. As a kid, I remember being called that by my mother. I remember those days well. Drinking as many milk shakes as I could. Eating a huge bowl of pasta, a few meatballs and then asking what was for dessert. They are long gone […]

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

February 8, 2017

Valentines Day is just around the corner. I am not the artistic or crafty type. Frankly, I don’t have an artsy bone in my body. I envy moms that can make their kids lunches look like animals or flowers.  There is nothing cute about the cheese, peanut butter or turkey sandwich that gets packed in my kids […]
