Homemade Biscoff Cookies

One night, at the end of a church event, someone started passing out packages of candy and cookies. I didn’t recognize any of the brands, and like an idiot I took three random packages.

One was a raspberry cream filled chocolates, and the second one was orange cream filled chocolates. They were awful. Just awful. They tasted fake and they gave me a migraine. (Maybe it was something in the filling?)

So by the time I got to the third package I was pretty scared. I looked at the label and was surprised to see that it contained mostly good ingredients. No high-fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, or MSG. I was thinking okay, so far so good. But I was still skeptical and not ready to dive into the cookies. After the last two times I had tried something new…well, you’d be nervous too!

I asked my mother what biscoff was just a yummy, buttery cookie that people typically eat with a cup of coffee.

The next morning I tried the cookies with my coffee. <—– Best decision ever.

It is soooo good! Not too sweet and goes really well with coffee. (Biscuit + Coffee = Biscoff… You’re Welcome! 😉 )

Biscoff has an amazing buttery flavor and I decided that morning that I couldn’t live without biscoff ever again.

What happened after that? I had biscoff with my coffee every morning for about three days. Then it ran out.

Easy Soaked Chocolate Chip Muffins

On mornings when we wake up late or are going to be very busy, I generally opt for muffins. They take 30 minutes start to finish, a lot less dishes than pancakes, and are a great grab and go meal.The last couple of weeks, when the two three year old gets hungry between meals due to a growth spurt, I would just hand him a muffin. Then I started to question if that was the healthiest decision. I mean, we all know wheat is not the healthiest of grains out there. And if were being honest, we mainly use it as a filler.

I wanted to make the muffins we ate a little healthier, since we love them so much. Most of what I found was just telling me to substitute in whole wheat flour for white, add nuts and seeds, and use a less processed sweetener. I already knew all of those to be options. What I found that was new, was to soak it.

At first, I was all like, eww…soggy muffins?…GROSS! But it turns out that all you do differently is move part of the process ahead some. Sounds easy, right? It is!

How to Make Southern Beignets

If you have liked me on Facebook then you know that I have been looking forward to cool weather for weeks now. You would also know that thew main reason I wanted fall to be here so bad is for these beignets. I don’t know about you, but I love beignets. Like, a lot. And a lot of people ask me what the heck they are when I start to talk about them. 😯 WHAT!? So if you don’t know what they are already, they are essentially the better version of a doughnut that has been cut into a square, fried, and topped with powdered sugar. You also have to have a good cup of cafe au leit to go with it.

Oven Baked Scrambled Eggs

As you already know, life can get hectic, and with school in full swing I can’t really take the time to make time consuming breakfasts’ anymore. Maybe on the weekend, but most of the days are school days, so whats a busy girl to make for breakfast when she’s trying to wrangle kids, find whatever one of the kids lost (which is often), get some coffee down the ol’ hatch, and start her own school at the same time?

The answer? Oven baked scrambled eggs. What?! You’ve never heard of it? That is such a crime. This recipe feeds a crowd in about five minutes of your time and twenty-five minutes cooking time. They turn out light, fluffy and moist—everything scrambled eggs should be without the time consuming slaving over a hot burner.

If you only serving yourself then its probably not that big of a deal to scramble an egg or two for yourself, but when your feeding 10 people like me, then oven baked scrambled eggs are exactly what you need.
