I have a confession. I am a closeted obnoxious holiday person. I love that Christmas music starts playing on the radio the day after Halloween. I will fully belt Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas is You” if nobody is around. I can watch the same Christmas movies over and over again every year and never get sick of …

Sunshine Pudding: Sausage Egg & Cheese Casserole

Baker Bettie Breakfast, Eggs, Holiday, Savory 4 Comments

Every major holiday since I can remember has always, and I mean always, included Sunshine Pudding for breakfast. At least that’s what we always called it. It’s basically an egg, sausage, and cheese casserole. So simple, yet so amazingly delicious.

Rich and decadent chocolate french silk pie recipe. This pie requires no baking and is a rich silky chocolate filling with whipped cream topping and chocolate shavings.  I fully admit that I have avoidance issues when it comes to pie.

Do you remember the first time you ever got kissed? I sure do. It was in 6th grade. I had a cool boyfriend that went to a different school. We met at the skating rink. He asked me to come skate with him during the couples skate. He had a broken arm at the time and I remember thinking how …

This weekend I found myself working my old part time job from college. A textbook clerk at the university bookstore. It’s where my husband and I first met and he is still working there, though he has a fancier job title than back when we were courting. He has me come in and help at the busy times of year …
