Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies


I have a recipe box that I inherited from my mother-in-law. I knew that there was a recipe for sugar free cookies, but I could not find that recipe. I did stumble upon a oatmeal coconut cookie recipe and since I had coconut to use up, I used that recipe. I did add chocolate chips and reduced the flour , which I should not have. The cookies ended up a little flat.

But they were delicious.

Chili and Cinnamon Rolls

I would of never of paired chili and cinnamon rolls together, but I guess it is a thing in at least Nebraska.


It started out I wanted to make something in a crock pot and I thought of chili. I don't make chili that often and was surprised to come across beer in the recipe. I am glad we had some in the fridge, because I was not going to buy a six pack of beer for just using a bottle. I guess I could of, my husband would of drank the beer.

Then while making the chili I remember that my husband likes to have cinnamon rolls with his chili. I did not want to go back to the store to buy cinnamon rolls nor did I want to make a large batch of rolls and spend hours making them. What are the odds that I not only find a small batch cinnamon rolls recipe, but it is made in about an hour too. I found it here.

So going back to the pairing of these two items, I guess the two used to paired as part of a school lunch.

Strawberry Mint Lemonades


My son made up some strawberry mint lemonade. He added some sliced strawberries and mint leaves to ordinary lemonade. Just let the lemonade sit for a while so the flavors can come through.

Carrot Muffins

I had some left over shredded carrot when my husband made macaroni salad over the past Memorial Day weekend. I decided to make muffins.


I thought it would be cute to make a smiley face using some origami. I had posted this photo to Instagram earlier. I found a recipe on the web.

Have It Your Way

I saw the variety of sandwiches at Burger King that had sourdough bread, so I asked if I could have sourdough bread on the Big Fish sandwich.  The manager also recommended using the mozzarella from their chicken parmesan sandwich to their burgers.

Impossible Cake



I had come across this Impossible Cake recipe on the internet. Being that today is Cinco de Mayo, I was looking for Mexican recipes. I guess my sweet tooth in me made me notice this recipe. What makes it interesting is that the chocolate cake batter is poured in first and then the flan is poured on top. As it bakes, the flan settles to the bottom of the pan.  I liked how it turned out, my husband likes it, but my son did not like the texture of the flan.

Mexican Macaroni Medley



I was looking for a quick recipe for Sunday dinner. I owned a Pampered Chef cookbook so I browsed through it and found the Mexican Macaroni Medley. I followed the recipe except I left out the green chilies and added ground beef flavored with a little taco seasoning. My husband wanted me to leave out the green chilies. This was also going to be a main dish so I thought it needed some protein. I also did not have the chili flavored Fritos on hand so I used normal Fritos. This dish was a big hit, so it will be made again in the future.
