Pumpkin Hot Chocolate Recipe with Marshmallows and Whipped Cream

If you’re watching this Pumpkin Hot Chocolate Recipe with Marshmallows and Whipped Cream than you already know that I’m clearly a bit wild haha.  This is what working by yourself all day every day will do to you.  You starve for human interaction so you, or I in this case, resort to acting a fool on camera.  You can ask my wife, I’ve been talking to myself for years.  I’m not having conversations with myself, rather I’m just spouting off any and every thought that comes to mind.  You should see me watching a Mizzou football or basketball game.  I…

Baked Apple Pie Cobblers with Brandy Caramel Recipe

It’s September, so it’s time to say goodbye to fresh berries and welcome in apples and pears.  By the time the summer is over, I’m ready to switch over to the next seasons produce so I have no problem moving into fall and winter.  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like winter, but I have no problem eating the fresh vegetables and fruit that it produces.  Since we are in the apple season, I thought it would be super cool to make some single serving Baked Apple Pie Cobblers with a Brandy Caramel Recipe.  I like the idea of a…

Homemade Rose Apple Pie Recipe with Cinnamon and Streusel

I’ve been dying to make an apple pie like this for the longest time, but again finding time to do it is always impossible.  Since I want to do a lot more videos on my site I’ve made it a point to put it on my calendar once a week just to make sure that I follow through with it.  My daughter started school last week and the stressers of that alone has been beyond overwhelming for me.  To be honest I’ve been getting migraines for the first in my life and I’m not sure if it’s work, or my…

Lemon Blueberry Muffin Recipe with Chia Seeds

It’s that time of year again where the kiddos are heading back to school and the laziness of those long summer days subsides.  One of the things that’s always been a challenge is just getting our daughter to eat something for breakfast.  It’s one of those meals that offers like 3 things: eggs, oatmeal or cereal, and as you can imagine those options can get pretty old within about a month’s times.  To keep things interesting I try to change it up dramatically by making things like shakshuka or scaling it back for a guaranteed winner with things like this…

Irish Apple Cake Recipe with Vanilla Custard Sauce

While some are having the time of their life, I’ll always remember St. Patrick’s Day as the day I moved to Chicago.  I was so excited as I began to approach the beautiful skyline of the city and then skuuuurt.  Dead. Stop. Traffic.  I didn’t realize it was St. Paddy’s Day weekend because I was too focused on moving up to Chicago, but dang did I get a rude awakening when I realized everyone was gathered down town drinking Guinness and taking in all of the local green river festivities.  Now that I’ve been settled in for 9 years I…
