Baked Fruity Oatmeal Bars

Any recipe whose directions are simply “Mix together all ingredients and bake” is my idea of a dream recipe! I have been wanting to try new breakfast recipes for a while now because while cheerios are yummy and good for you I am getting tired of the breakfast monotony. I made this dish last night…

Baked Mac-n-Cheese (My childhood and adulthood favorite)

As a kid my mom would ask us what our favorite dinner was so she could make it on our birthday. Year after year my favorite never changed, and on November 10th everyone in the house knew that we’d be having baked mac-n-cheese for dinner. This recipe is amazing in its original form and I…
