Mini Pumpkin Pie Muffins

These muffins are incredibly yummy! I was excited for how quickly they came together, because who doesn’t love a dessert recipe made in blender?! (Only one thing to clean!) I kept these in the fridge for a nice treat to have when my kids went to bed, and looked forward to it each night! These are not bread like, similar to traditional muffins. These have a similar consistency to actual pumpkin pie! Mini Pumpkin Pie Muffins Ingredients 1 cup pumpkin […]

If it’s cold and you’ve been eating a lot of chili (or a lot of chili-like bean dishes), you’ve probably made a lot of cornbread to eat with that chili. And if you’ve been making lots of cornbread, then there’s a possibility that you’ll find yourself with extras.

Just Put the Turkey in the Oven

Turkeys are never perfect. They all taste like cardboard. Have you ever really had an outstanding turkey? Don’t worry or fret about having to cook it – that causes unnecessary stress during what’s supposed to be a fun evening together with friends and family – just stick it in the oven and enjoy yourself! That’s Mary Risley’s advice, anyway. Enjoy a class of pink champagne or pinot noir or whatever else you have and have a good time! Still need […]

It’s by this comedy team, you’ve probably never heard of them…
