When I was 5 years old my Mom made these for me. She told me when they baked they would be all different kinds of shapes. At the time, I was obsessed with that pop up game called Perfection. The only time I got to play it was at Recess in school. So, when my Mom said these would pop up all different shapes, I was so excited, because I really thought they would come out as triangles, squares and circles. LOL She had a good laugh about it after she realized my confusion.

Sometimes, I just felt like making some … to remind me of her laughter.

Tomato Bacon Cups


This is a recipe that my sister and I revised from a good church friend.  I remember her saying she got it from another friend of hers.  I am sure it is probably online somewhere.

Here is our revised version:

14.5 oz can diced tomatoes

1/2 cup mayo

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/4 cup bacon bits

Flaky layer biscuits

Spray small cup muffin pan.  The split layer biscuits in each muffin cup.  Fill with the cheese mixture.  Bake 10-12 minutes at 400 degrees.

Moreno Bakery visit

Saturday was a great day to visit a bakery we had never been to before.  Moreno Bakery was hopping! I carefully chose which treat I was going to enjoy until I settled on this Lemon Raspberry cupcake.

My sister chose a decadent looking chocolate cupcake.  OH why didn’t I choose it?

Brian chose to go with a dessert instead of a cupcake and went with the good ole fashioned Napoleon.
