With Thanksgiving just days away I thought I would whip up this new recipe. I wanted to make pumpkin pie but I wanted to make it with a twist! I started with using a pecan crust instead of the plain old crust. You could add whatever nuts you really wanted to though. Then I also thought I would use coconut milk instead of sweetened condensed milk. These were just little changes that make this pumpkin pie burst with flavor! Are you daring enough to try this fun new recipe? Why not spice up your holidays with this flavorful pumpkin pie!
*For the Crust
2 cups pecans
⅓-cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons of butter, melted
1 ¼ cups coconut milk
15 ounces pure pumpkin, 1 small can
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ teaspoons pumpkin spice
¼ teaspoon salt
*Coconut can be added to the pie mixture if you choose. A ¼ cup to ½ cup of shredded coconut will work.
Pre heat oven to 350°
In a small food processor add the pecans, sugar and cinnamon. Pulse the nuts until they become tiny pieces. Place the ground up nut mixture into a pie pan. Pour the melted butter over the nut mixture and mix together. Then spread out the nut mixture evenly in the pie pan. Press the mixture firmly around the pie pan. Place the crust in the oven for 8-12 minutes.
Mix all of the pie filling ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Once the crust has baked, fill the pie pan with the pumpkin filling. Place the pie pan back in the oven for 45-55 minutes, until the middle has cooked and is firm. Place a knife in the middle of the pie. If nothing is left on the knife, the pie is done. Let cool and serve with whip cream and toasted coconut.
To toast shredded coconut…. Lay out coconut on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350° for 2-4 minutes. Check on it to make sure it doesn’t burn.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and as always, Enjoy!

Just recently I was over at a friends house and she had made this pumpkin dessert. I could believe I hadn’t thought of this! Ive had so many difference types of this but not PUMPKIN! Being a lover of most things pumpkin I couldn’t wait and had to try this immediately! She called it Pumpkin Fluff, this tasted just like the inside of the pumpkin pie without the crust!
This was actually more decadent than an actual pumpkin pie. It has the pudding and whipped cream that makes this so fluffy and light tasting. She served it with graham crackers but you could serve it with sugar cookies or if you’re like me you can just take spoonfuls! In the past weeks that I have known about this recipe I have made it twice and find myself just taking spoonfuls of it throughout the day! This recipe can be liked by all ages and it fun for kids to dip crackers or cookies into. With this recipe only having 4 ingredients and it all being added into one bowl at once you really can’t mess this treat up!
1 can pumpkin puree, 15 ounces
1 tub of whipped topping, 8 ounces
1 package instant Jell-O pudding french vanilla, 3.4 ounces
1 ¼ teaspoon pumpkin spice seasoning
2 sleeves of graham crackers, or sugar cookies
Fold in all the ingredients together in a bowl. Try to keep the mixture light and fluffy. Place in a serving bowl and let sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving with graham crackers or sugar cookies! Enjoy!
My disclaimer; I am not taking credit that I created this recipe as I got it from a friend. I am just passing along a great recipe and idea that tastes wonderful for all my pumpkin lovers!

With it being summer and hot I know I don’t want to turn on the oven to cook…. but I also do need to make stuff for dinner. And then there’s the part of wanting to eat something somewhat healthy and fresh. I again went to my fridge to find what I could add to our grilled burgers. I came up with a quick cucumber salad that really doesn’t take much time. You just need to chop it all up and toss it in a bowl! It’s so easy for a hot summer evening!
1 cucumber, sliced
½ medium red onion, sliced thinly
3 plum tomatoes, chopped
1 tablespoon white vinegar
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon pepper
pinch of salt
You will need to make sure all veggies are cleaned. Start with the cucumber; I peeled some of the skin off. It’s up to you if you want it to stay on. Then chopped it so it stays in the circle form. Next cut the onion into thin strips. The tomatoes can be cut whatever way you like. I chopped mine into large cubes. Place these chopped veggies into a medium bowl. Add the vinegar and spices then toss it all together.
You can serve immediately or let sit in the fridge for a couple hours. Enjoy!

The other day we were invited to a BBQ that was spur of the moment! I just love summer time hanging out with friends! So I quickly needed to make something to bring! Luckily I had all of these ingredients to make this quick awesome summer pea salad! Also it’s so much cheaper making it, than running to your grocery store deli and having to pay for it by the pound! Plus you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you made an awesome side dish with barely any cooking! I hope you find this recipe to be helpful for you and your summer BBQ!
2 12ounce peas, frozen (2 freezer bags)
5 thick slices of bacon, chopped
½ cup sour cream
½ cup mayonnaise
1 ½ tablespoons dry ranch powder
½ teaspoon Saucy’s Seasoning or Salt, Pepper, Garlic powder.
½ – ¾ cup cheese, cubed
½ red onion, thinly chopped
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
Start by placing the frozen peas into a strainer. Run cold water over them for a quick rinse. Set aside; let peas thaw and dry. You will want to keep the peas semi frozen while you mix them into the dressing. If thawed completely you run the risk of mush pea salad.
To cook the bacon use a frying pan. Set the stovetop heat to medium low and let the strips cook until crispy. Once crispy, transfer bacon to a plate with paper towels to soak up the excess grease. Let the bacon cool before chopping.
In a large mixing bowl add the rest of the ingredients. Mix it well. Then add peas and bacon. Give the peas a good tossing to make sure they all become coated with the dressing.
This pea salad is ready to serve! Place in the fridge to serve later too! Enjoy!

The mixture is really up to you and how you like your drinks. It’s also a great drink without the vodka….I didn’t just say that! Also this drink is 5 calories without vodka and about 65-70 cals with.

So the past two weeks have been absolutely crazy at our house…. We moved from our little apartment to a little townhouse. Moving is sooooooo not fun with a 1 1/2 year old. Then after a couple days of being at our new place we got to have Nana come visit!!!! She likes to come visit when we move so she can help. This time we ended up moving a week before her stay which made it nice. This trip was about us girls and doing girly things with Madeline.
First we went to the Cabbage Patch Hospital in Cleveland, Georgia. Ever since a friend told me about this place I’ve always wanted to go. I knew this would be a fun place for us girls to start our fun week of adventures!
My first doll was cabbage patch and I remember loving it so much! My mom said she found me crying one night in bed and she rushed in to see what was the matter… I said ” Mommy I’m sad because my babies friends are all left at the store.” Well that sure worked on my mom because we went to the store and I got another cabbage patch kid!! So going to this Cabbage Patch Hospital wasn’t only for Madeline, it was for my mom and I too! We had a wonderful day getting to watch the live birth of a new Cabbage Patch being brought into this world! We even got to help name her Rosie Madeline. Madeline ended up adopting another baby from the patch named Harley. She loves her new doll and plays with her lots! Coming and visiting the hospital was a lot of fun and worth the 1 1/2 hour drive!!
Now another fun Day with Nana was spent at the Atlanta Zoo! The weather was perfect and sunny! We got to see lots of animals. Madeline liked being the boss and led us all over the park!
Another fun day with Nana was getting to go to the American Girl Doll Store! Now, Again, My mom and I have a story to go along with this. When I was about 2nd grade I wanted an American Girl doll so bad. Back then they were so new and very expensive. They had just come out and so paying $100 bucks for a dolls wasn’t going to happen for me. So to this day I still hang that over my parents head. So for Madeline’s 1st birthday I wanted them to buy her an American Girl Doll. For now we settled for the itty bitty baby and Madeline just loves her too! You can see again in these pictures that she had a great time at the shop looking and playing with the dolls stuff! Can’t wait to take her back to keep adding to her collection!
So as you can she by all the pictures we had a wonderful visit with Nana! All things must come to an end and Nana has to find her way back into “the box” ….. the iPad for Skype. We had a wonderful time and made a lot of fun memories!!

What goes best with milk and cookies? A big bowl of ice cream does, of course. Blue Bell has taken a snack time favorite and combined it with its great-tasting ice cream to create Milk & Cookies Ice Cream.
Milk & Cookies is a delicious vanilla ice cream combined with chocolate chip cookies.
“It’s a simple idea of mixing two snack time favorites,” said Carl Breed, director of marketing for Blue Bell. “However, the flavor is anything but simple. Take one bite and it tastes just like dipping a chocolate chip cookie into a glass of milk. The vanilla ice cream has a fresh milk flavor and the chocolate chip cookies are the perfect addition. Milk & Cookies Ice Cream is going to be your go-to snack from now on.”
The chocolate chip cookie originated in the United States and is one of the most well-known and loved cookies. It has been debated whether the cookie tastes better crunchy or chewy. The chocolate chip cookies used in Milk & Cookies maintain the perfect combination of crunchy and chewy when mixed in the ice cream.
Milk & Cookies will be available in local area stores beginning Friday, March 13, but only for a limited time.
Also, now available from Blue Bell is Butter Crunch Ice Cream – a tasty vanilla ice cream loaded with chunks of crunchy chocolate peanut butter candy. Or, if it’s chocolate you crave, grab a half gallon of Chocolate Decadence Ice Cream – a rich, chocolate fudge ice cream with layers of whipped cream topping and bittersweet chocolate chips.

Hello there! It’s been awhile since my last post and this year I hope to not leave you without recipes! Right now in my house French Toast is a popular item! My little girl is loving this breakfast treat! Now that I’m a mom, I am loving cooking her all of my favorite things I ate as a kid! Plus making these at home taste much better than the freezer isle at the grocery store. You can easily freeze these leftovers to have at another time!
In a small mixing bowl, slowly whisk together the milk, salt, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract and sugar until smooth. Transfer liquid into a medium bowl or baking pan to evenly dredge the bread pieces.
Preheat a skillet or frying pan over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of butter to lightly coat the pan.
Dredge bread slices in mixture until saturated. Cook bread in skillet on each side until golden brown. Serve hot with maple syrup and butter.
Saucy Says! By freezing leftovers you can have French toast whenever you want. To re-heat take out a couple slices and put in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.
