Bloomin’ Baked Potato Recipe

Bloomin Baked Potato

We had so much fun with the Bloomin' Baked Apples I shared last month that my whole family decided that we needed to make some more bloomin' recipes. I've seen the fabulous bloomin' onion bread recipes online and one of these days I am going to try it but we wanted to go with something else. We tossed around ideas for other things that could be cut in a similar way and we decided on potatoes! Baked potatoes are good anyway, but then when you cut them, cover them with oil and salt and top them … {continue reading}

This Pumpkin Mug Cake recipe is dangerously easy to make! You are only 60 seconds away from warm, delicious cake! I attended my first Tupperware party before I was even married.

Pepperoni Pizza Dip Recipe

Pepperoni Pizza Spread Recipe

Last night when we got home, we parked in the driveway because Brian was using the garage. Zack jumped out of the car and was delighted to discover a salamander on the driveway! He quickly scooped it up and brought it into the garage so he could see it better in the light. I, on the other hand, got the heebie-jeebies and felt my skin crawling so I went inside. Christine went out to look at the salamander with Zack. All three of my kids love animals and will pick up frogs, snakes and now … {continue reading}
