One of my favorite things to have at Christmas is a slice of Pumpkin Roll for breakfast. This pumpkin roll recipe is from my mom. My mom has made them ever since I can remember. Have been trying for a while to make one, and seemed to always mess it up. Mom always made it look so easy. Excited to say was finally able to make one on my own.
Well it is Monday again 🙁 At least we got to gain an hour this weekend with time change. Hope you had a great weekend. This year is going by so quick. Can’t believe it is already November. That means Thanksgiving and Christmas are nearly here. Not sure about you but this tends to be the time I do my most cooking and baking. Sweet Potato Casserole is pretty much a must to have at your holiday dinner here in Texas, and it has become my go to dish to bring for the holidays.
Found this recipe in a cookbook from my Aunt, and it is always a hit.
My mom found this recipe for Peanut Butter Fruit Dip on Pinterest recently, and it turned out to be pretty good. After I tried it I just had to make some for myself, and it is quickly becoming one of my favorite recipes.
This recipe is so easy it makes me wonder why I hadn’t thought of it before lol. Peanut Butter Fruit Dip is such a great accent for your fruit. My personal favorite has been apples. Made some Peanut Butter Fruit Dip over the weekend, and took it with some apples to work as part of my lunch. Instead of the traditional ranch dressing that usually comes with a fruit tray you could add Peanut Butter Fruit Dip to serve if you are having a party. This would be perfect for a party or picnic cause even kids would like this dip. You could even send this dip in school lunch for your kids. Best part is the dip is healthy. The three ingredients are probably ones you will already have at your house. The dip is creamy, and sweet at the same time.
This is a great quick, and easy go to recipe for anyone.
What is your go to recipe? Where do you usually got look for recipes?
Lunch Lady Brownies mainly have a fudge taste. You can whip these up quick, and easy. You could take these to a party, and they would be a hit.

Diva Challenge Day 1
On a side note. This week I am joining in on something fun called the Diva Challenge. It is basically a one week FASHION challenge where themes are given and am give 24 hours to create an outfit and post. Today’s theme is FIRST DATE. Below is the outfit I put together.
Oatmeal Boiled Cookies are a family recipe like Lemon Icebox Pie that I shared last week. I have always liked Oatmeal Boiled Cookies more than chocolate chip cookies, which is saying a lot cause I love chocolate chip cookies. Mom rarely made Oatmeal Boiled Cookies, so I always thought it was a big treat when she did.
For some reason I have always thought Oatmeal Boiled Cookies were hard to make, and was not sure I would be able to get them to come out right on my own. Finally decided I would attempt to make my first batch by myself.
You will want to put newspaper underneath the wax paper to keep from making a mess. Now Oatmeal Boiled Cookies can be temperamental. If it is too humid sometimes they might not setup right.
Considering this was my first attempt at making Oatmeal Boiled Cookies think it was a success. My first batch actually came out, and tasted good. Not exactly like moms, but getting close. I was just so excited my first batch actually turned out, and I didn’t mess them up. Will definitely be making Oatmeal Boiled Cookies again in the future.
Now that I have made my first batch of Oatmeal Boiled Cookies not sure why I didn’t try to make them sooner. Making Oatmeal Boiled Cookies was actually easier than I was thinking it would be. Now not as easy as making a batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies or Lazy Cake Cookies, but not overly complicated. If I can make them then anyone can.
Only bad part about making a batch of cookies is usually I can’t eat just one. Really tests your will power lol.
What are your favorite cookies? Or do you have a family recipe you have always wanted to learn?
Looking for a cold dessert to help you cool off this summer? Got the perfect recipe for you. You should try Lemon Icebox Pie. It is not a rich tasting dessert just light, and cold.
When I had my own apartment my grandma would stop by for a visit, and bring me a Lemon Icebox pie cause she knew it was my favorite desert. This is one of those family recipes I had always loved, and wanted to learn to make myself. Figured what better excuse to try to make a Lemon Icebox Pie than a work spread, so I made one to take for our monthly spread. This way I take it to work, and get my coworkers to eat it instead of myself. Good way to cut back on calories right?
Viola that is it! This was my first attempt at making it, and was very surprised how easy it was to make. Now my grandma hand makes the graham cracker crust, but I went the cheat route with a store bought graham cracker crust. Her crust is definitely better, but the store bought worked out pretty well. Still tasted good, and made it pretty quick to make.
Think this went over well at work cause this is all that was left
Storing your Lemon Icebox Pie
Store your Lemon Icebox Pie in the freezer after you make it (Hence why it is called Icebox Pie). Just sit it out about 30 minutes before you want to serve it to thaw a little, so you can cut it. You don’t want it to sit out too long or it is just becomes watery mess.
