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!

Mom's Cherry Dessert

I am not a cherry pie fan, but I could never turn down this dessert made by my mother. I tried to make it the other night for some friends. I was avoiding a trip to the store and made it without having all of the right stuff. It was still delicious, but I promised I'd post the real recipe soon. So here you go! Enjoy :)

1 yellow cake mix
2 21 oz. cans cherry pie filling
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. slivered almonds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour cherry pie filling in the bottom of a 9x13" pan. Sprinkle cake mix on top. Top with butter shavings. Last, top with almonds. Bake about 50 minutes or until golden. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. YUM! Thanks Mom :)
