I am a lover of my husband, adorable children, and last but not least food. I first started baking when I was just a little girl. My mom always had an amazing home-cooked meal on the table and she always encouraged me to help. Much of what I know has come from watching her in the kitchen. I used to love to pretend I owned a restaurant and cook things up for my siblings and their friends. Not much has changed :) Now my sweet husband and kids get to be my taste testers. I love exploring new ingredients and am always looking for the best of the best when it comes to recipes. I hope you enjoy the site as much as I do. Through this blog I will share just a few of my favorite things- my passion for child development, my wonderful family, and my love for food :) Happy blogging!

Homemade Oreos

-These are a family fave. They can be time-consuming so somehow I am the one who always ends up with the job of making them.... More for me to sample I guess! I have seen many variations of this recipe. TRY THIS ONE! You will not be disappointed. Enjoy! Makes quite a few.


2 (18.25 ounce) packages devil's food cake mix
4 eggs
1/2 c. butter (soft)
1 tsp. vanilla


1/2 c. butter (soft)
8 oz. cream cheese (soft)
1/2 bag powdered sugar (add to taste)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Blend cake mixes eggs 1/2 cup butter and vanilla in a standing mixer. Dough will be very thick and sticky. Grease your hands and roll in balls about the size of a quarter and place on grased baking sheets. Make an even number of balls. Bake for 7 minutes. Let cookies stand on cookie sheet a few minutes before removing them to cooling rack. After cookies have cooled, put Frosting between two cookies, putting bottom sides together. You can be pretty generous with the frosting so DOUBLE STUFF! :) These are addicting...
