Turkish Bread Recipe for Breadmaker

This bread is so easy and is so yummy!!  I add different things to it depending on what’s for dinner..  I added roasted garlic this time around, others have been rosemary or red pepper flakes or a mix or Italian herbs..  You cannot go wrong.


As always – enjoy!

Best Chicken Marinade Ever Recipe!

We are always looking for yummy meat marinades.  This one was especially delicious.  I had originally pulled the marinade together on Saturday, but since we wanted to grill and it started pouring (go figure!) we waited to cook til Sunday. Not sure if it’s the marinade itself or the length of time it was in the marinade OR both!



As always – enjoy!

Bailey’s Chocolate Mousse

I have whipped this recipe up randomly for special occasions or just for fun!  It looks complicated – but it’s not!  It’s amazing and well worth the small effort for a fabulous dessert.  I typically serve this in small shot glasses with demitasse spoons – and it’s fun to do that when hosting a fun appetizer and mini desserts soiree   🙂

I apologize for lack of pictures – I cleaned up my phone and deleted a ton of pictures – ooops!

As always, ENJOY!

Peppermint Pie Recipe

This is a fabulous pie – if I must say so myself!!  I whipped it  up for fun last week, and then when my friend asked me for the recipe I had to make it again to ensure I gave her the right steps!

Here is my recipe for the Oreo Crust 

As you can see above, I have also made minis of this in parchment paper cupcake liners. I sprinkled tiny bit of crushed oreos (not an actual crust) at the bottom.

I then scooped some of the peppermint pie filling over the top.

Into the freezer they went, I removed, topped with whipped topping and peppermint pieces and mini chips.

Perfect mini dessert!

As always – enjoy!

Oreo Cookie Crust Recipe

I’ve been so slack in posting recipes, but since my good friend Jenny asked me for this recipe, I decided that was the push I needed!  Thank you, Jenny!

I made this amazing crust to go with a peppermint pie.  I also just crushed  up oreos and put them in the bottom of a parchment paper cupcake liner – and poured the pie filling over the crumbs.

But for a pie crust – you really need the butter to hold the crumbs together.

So here we go 🙂

As always – enjoy!
