Angie’s Blackberry Quick Bread

by Angie on September 5, 2013

It’s the time of year when jams and jellies are in abundance at farmers markets and roadside stands. Or you can make you own jam like Erin does! She used blueberries & strawberries in her recipe, but it would work the same with blackberries!  When you stock up on jams, go ahead and grab some […]

Hey, hey back to school-ers!!! It is that time of year when the frenzy gets frenzier (more frenzied?) and the impossible task of getting dinner on the table is, well, impossible.

Baking Holiday Cookies on a Budget

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on December 12, 2012

It’s in the mess that memories are made. Right? At least that’s how it seems to be work at our house. Be it in the kitchen or outside in a pile of leaves or with bubbles in the bathtub. It’s the fun and messy activities that make the best memories. My oldest elf Ryan helping […]


Angie’s Cake Mix Cookies

by Angie on December 6, 2012

I have no time to bake, yet cookies are needed at pre-school, scouts, the party at dance class, and oh yeah, I did sign up for that cookie exchange. Ok, no time to panic. Let’s put away the Martha Stuart aspirations and go with something easy, fast and of course, tasty. When I have no time to bake […]

Actually, I really should have included this in Monday’s How to Freeze Cookie Dough article, but we’ll let this one stand on its own. I love gifting people with homemade cookie dough. And this is a […]
