Cinnamon Pecan Coffee Cake

I had a brunch!!!  It was so much fun!!  OMG, even in my tiny apartment.  We were tight, but we all fit.  Even with the cats. :)  That is a picture of everyone in my kitchen.  According to my mom, a one butt kitchen!  Believe me, you do not want to cook with all those people in the kitchen.  I don’t think you could move!

Jam Muffins

I guest posted over at Supper for a Steal. If you want to see the recipe head over there!

These are super yummy!  You can use your favorite jam or if you want to finish off a jam jar.  And you can mix and match flavors really easily too.  The raspberry did not come out very strong in these.  But they were still really great.

I already have all the ingredients for this recipe in my pantry.  So no extra trips to the grocery store.  I love to bake, so I keep my pantry pretty well stocked for baking, but it is unlikely that you will have to buy more than one or two ingredients for these muffins.

#SundaySupper White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Today is my first day participating in #Sunday Supper.  I am super excited!!

My dad lives 4 hours away from me.  And I do not have time right now to visit.  Therefore, I wanted to make something that I could mail to him.  Which limits my options quite a bit.  However, my dad loves cookies so I went with that.  And I have never made macadamia nut cookies, so I thought that would be super fun.

Banana Bread

I just received a letter from my great aunt Vivian.  She gave me four new recipes!!  It made my day!  I went out and bought bananas that day.

My great aunt Vivian is my favorite great aunt!  She taught me to tie quilts and she has a cross stitch that says you can eat the crumbs off her floor.  She is also very, very old and had cancer before.  And every time I say good bye to her and see ya later.  She replies, “If I am still alive then.”  Which is super morbid, but some how it is always really funny when she says it.

Bird Nest Cookies

These are so pretty!  I love the colors for Easter, all those pastels.  I have never really cooked Easter specific food, so when I saw this I thought I should give it a go.
