White Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Latte

Ahh, pumpkin. The season I look forward to the entire year.  Yes, pumpkin is a season in and of itself, I am a firm believer!  I love pumpkin everything, but what I look forward the most are the lattes.  The warm frothy, pumpkin spice drink that dreams are made of.

I can't count how many I had last year, and frankly I don't even want to think about it.  I can say it's probably way more than I'd ever care to admit.  But, enough about that.  During my pumpkin binge last year, I discovered yet an another amazing addition to my pumpkin latte.  White chocolate.

Yes, as if the delicious pumpkin latte couldn't get any better, the addition of white chocolate takes it over the top.  The  pumpkin, warm spices and brown sugar pair so well with the creamy, sweet white chocolate.
But, before now I always depended on the coffeehouse to provide me with my much desired pumpkin latte.  Since I started staying home with my little guy, I don't get out and about as much and I didn't want to depend on the coffeehouse provide me with my beloved latte.

Maple Pumpkin Buttermilk Biscuits

I'm a bread lover, so me telling you that biscuits...or any type of bread for the matter, are an absolute favorite of mine.  There's nothing much better than a flaky biscuit straight from the oven that's been schmeared with a little butter and perhaps a dab of jam.  Give me that any day of the week and I'll be one happy camper.

Another thing I'm infatuated with.  Pumpkin.  Yes, I know, shocker again.  I'm a pumpkin-aholic and when this time of year rolls around I'm chomping at the bit for all things pumpkin.  And, I think it's safe to say that I'm in pretty good company with about 99.9% of the U.S. feeling the exact same way.

S'mores Stuffed Biscuit Waffles

A few weeks ago I celebrated the humble, yet amazing, waffle with a week full of indulgent waffle recipes.  I tried to squeeze as many recipes as I possibly could into one week, but honestly there weren't enough days in the week.  My mind went crazy and my kitchen was a waffle factory for several weeks.  But.  It was so worth it.  And I have a few extra waffle creations to share with you.

I decided to allow you...and the rest of my family to recover from their waffle coma before pulling out the ol' waffle iron again.  This is another recipe that is indulgent but so simple.  It's even ideal for those busy mornings when everyone is trying to get out the door!

Just because you want a fluffy, buttery waffle doesn't mean you need to pull out the mixing bowl, eggs and butter.  With this recipe, you can get all that and more by just opening a can.  A can of thick and fluffy biscuits.

Cut Out Sugar Cookies with Royal Frosting

Tomorrow is the big day.  Bright and early the thousands of ladies with fill the streets of downtown Little Rock, while hundreds of men line the streets to cheer them on.  It's the annual Race for the Cure.  An event that is near and dear to my heart, raising money for a cause that everyone supports; cancer research.
This week has been filled with recipes donning the color pink.  All this has been in preparation and spirit of Race for the Cure.  To support the fighters out there and to remember the ones who lost their battle with cancer.

Through the month of October the color pink will be worn to show support of cancer research.  The iconic pink ribbons will be worn, displayed on doors, signs and businesses with pride.  All to show we want to Kick Cancer's Butt and we want to find a cure.

Strawberry Cheesecake Batter Dip

Cheesecake.  It's rich, creamy, smooth and such an indulgent dessert.  It's one of the most iconic dishes in the dessert scene.  There's even a certain renowned restaurant in New York that's known for it's "Most Fabulous" cheesecakes.  It's a staple in American cuisine, as well as others.

There's an art to the humble cheesecake.  But once you've mastered the basics, the options are truly endless.  From topping it with delicious, fresh fruits to adding in seasonal flavors and everything in between.

But, let's face it, sometimes there's not enough time in the day for a cheesecake.  Let it bake, remove it and let it sit (untouched) for at least 2 hours before serving.  Sometimes that's not possible in our busy lives, and well, just plain torture if we do find the time to make an amazing, showstopper of a dessert.

So, what's one to do whey they are craving that rich, creamy goodness of a cheesecake but there's just not enough hours left in the day?  Well, the next best thing of course.  Delicious, indulgent cheesecake batter dip!

Pomegranate Cranberry Fizz

A few weeks ago we went to visit my brother-in-law and sister-in-law.  It was a jam packed weekend filled with amazing food, tailgating, and calling the hogs...WPS!  In between all that we managed to find a little downtime which was perfect for Tucker, his daddy and his Uncle Mo to play Legos! While the boys were playing my sister-in-law and I had some time to catch up.

A few weeks before we headed up to visit my SIL hosted a baby shower for one of her friends.  She and I had talked about the menu and various drink options.  She was set on making the infamous and addicting sherbet punch, punch she wanted to serve it in something other than the enormous punch bowl.  So then the task was set to figure out how to serve the punch in one of those cute glass drink dispensers.  I had a few suggestions but the one that stuck in her head was scooping the sherbet into small balls, freezing them and using them as "ice cubes".  It was a hit!
As with every shower there were leftovers; food, sherbet, drinks...everything.  So she decided to get a little creative with the sherbet and make some cocktails!  While we were visiting she whipped one up for me and let me tell was freakin' awesome!  I loved it and sucked it down in no time.  A mixture of sherbet, orange juice, Sprite and tequila.  Sweet, a slight tang and the sherbet added a frothy sweetness.
