Cream Cheese Filled Pumpkin Muffins

Cream Cheese Pumpkin Muffins

Is anyone else ready for everything that Fall brings? I'm talking pumpkin, boots, and cooler temperatures. I'm ready to see the temperatures take a dive and get out of the upper 80's and 90's, the first sign of cooler weather and I'm pulling out the boots and scarves, you can bank on that fact. But, I'm not opposed to enjoying the tastes of fall, even if the weather wants to hang on to summer a bit longer. Saturday morning, we baked up some delicious pumpkin muffins. They were filled with a sweet cream cheese mixture and topped with a cinnamon goodness, that you're going to love. Even … [Continue reading...]

Cabbage Rolls

I can't really take credit for anything besides eating these :) My mom made them over the weekend and they are amazing! She's made them a few times before, but I didn't much care for them.

I love cabbage. I mostly love it fried, but this is probably a bit more healthy ;) I typically like any kind of … [Continue reading...]

I will make an easy box cake mix and top it with this Hershey's icing. But the truth is, when this bowl of icing is sitting in your refrigerator, it may not even … [Continue reading...]
