Super Creamy Macaroni and Cheese {Secret Recipe Club}

Super Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

It's that time again.  The first Monday of the month which means is time for the Secret Recipe Club reveal.  I love this day.  It's a day when a group of bloggers post a recipe from a "secret" blog that they've been assigned.  It's a great opportunity to find new blogs (or re-visit old favorites) and make a new recipe.  I love it. My secret blog this month was Daily Dish Recipes.   Nicole is the author of this amazing blog.  She is a writer, blogger and photography junkie and she's a mother … [Continue reading...]

Ugly Christmas Sweater Cookies

Ugly Christmas Sweater Decorated Sugar Cookies

This whole ugly Christmas sweater thing makes me laugh.  Do you know how many Christmas sweaters I used to own but got rid of?  Because they weren’t “in style” anymore?  Way too many.  Heck, I would have won every ugly Christmas sweater contest out there.  I had that many.  (Is that sad???  We’d better not […]

Homemade Raspberry and Cream Cheese Danish

It’s time for December’s Secret Recipe Club post.  It seems strange to be posting again since we just posted last week, but that was for our Holiday Themed reveal.  So it’s even stranger (or is it a coincidence???) that this month’s blog assignment is the same blog I had for the Holiday Treats post – […]
