What do you get when you mix a little bit of yeast, some dark molasses, caraway seeds, some hearty rye flour and lots and lots of love? You get an adorable teddy bear bread that is sure to make your heart smile with a whole lot of lovin' when you pull this Brown Bear Pumpernickel Bread out of your oven :)

The recipe I'm sharing with you today for Sausage and Egg Quesadillas is super quick and super easy to prepare because it takes advantage of Jimmy Dean precooked sausage crumbles, prepared shredded cheeses, and a package of flour tortillas. The only thing you'll really have to do to prepare these delicious quesidillas is fry up a few eggs, and do the assembly. BAM! You'll be eating in no time!

A basic roast chicken is one of my families favorite Sunday meals. I realize that most of you reading this now probably already have your own favorite method and recipe to roast a chicken, but there might also be some of you out there that are just a little bit intimidated by the process and the outcome. Not to worry, I am here to help you become a master chicken roaster, and take away some of your fears.

Can you feel it? Spring is in the air! Well, maybe not really...yet (at least here in the Midwest where I live)...but it IS coming, and we are all so, so ready! But until the days warm up, and all this crazy snow melts, this Strawberry Bread with Rhubarb and Bananas (which I made for the #TwelveLoaves March challenge of strawberries) will put a springtime smile on your face and is sure to brighten your mood with just one bite!

When you think about Mardi Gras, what foods come to mind for you? For me, it's a king cake, or anything sweet that's been deep fat fried and then liberally sprinkled with green, purple and yellow sanding sugars. For that reason, I decided to make these Mini Long Johns for this weeks #SundaySupper theme of "Fat Sunday"!

As you can probably tell by the title of this post, "Incredibly Delicious Sesame Seed Dinner Rolls" the flavor and texture of these little lovelies is the exact reason why I love, love, love to bake homemade bread!!! You won't find rolls this good in any grocery store or even your neighborhood corner bakery (if I may be so bold)!

The recipe I'm sharing with you today for Caramelized Rice Pudding with Coconut and Lime will most likely completely change your thinking about traditional rice pudding.

This is my first time back participating with the #SRC (Secret Recipe Club) since before Christmas. It actually seems like a much longer time than just a few months, and I must say I missed it. As my first blog assignment out of the 2014 gate I was excited to be given The Wimpy Vegetarian's blog and recipes to peruse and choose from. I recipe I chose was Susan's Kale and Cauliflower Tart in a Cheddar Crust.

The call for this weeks #SundaySupper Chili Cook-Off went out, and I immediately knew I had to participate. To enter this prestigious chili cook-off, I tied on my thinking cap and came up with a fun twist to my traditional homemade Kudos Kitchen chili. The result is a unique and flavorful recipe I like to call Olé Mole Turkey Chili. It may not be a traditional chili in terms of what you're used to, with the addition of cocoa powder and cinnamon, but that's what makes it original...and fun!

When Heather of Girlichef put out a call to bloggers far and wide to celebrate today being National Margarita Day, I just knew I had to answer her call with my recipe for Mixed Berry Margarita's.

At first I thought I'd made my rghaif (stuffed Moroccan pancakes) all wrong because they weren't all flat and lovely like all the photos I'd seen of others' rghaif. Of course not everyone in the #BreadBakingBabes had decided to stuff theirs, but I still felt as though mine were just too big and bulky. The good news about my rghaif or rgaif (I've seen both spellings) is the taste! I filled mine with some shredded, smoked Gouda and Gruyere cheeses along with some chopped pistachios. What can possibly be wrong with that? LOL

I came up with this recipe for Turkey Meatloaf with Hash Brown Topping on one of those nights where you scour your freezer and fridge to see what you have that will come together as a quick and easy weeknight meal. The results were tasty and blog worthy, even if it's not the most photogenic meal in the world :)

The thing that really stood out to me while this Slow Cooker Beef with Peppers, Onions and Dill was cooking was the wonderful aroma of beef and dill married together with the sweet bell peppers. The longer it cooked, the hungrier I became.

I hope when you see this bowl of Chicken, Lemon and Orzo Soup that your mouth starts to water, and you immediately run to your fridge and pantry to see if you have all the ingredients so you can make this tonight. If not, quick run to the store. Your family will thank you!

Sometimes ideas for recipes keep me awake at night. If I didn't think the sound of my stand mixer whipping up cinnamon whipped cream would bother my family in the middle of the night, I probably would have been baking and assembling these Deconstructed Strawberry Pies with Cinnamon Whipped Cream and Chocolate Ganache at 2:00 in the morning.
