Low Carb Muffins

Gordon Ramsay’s Beer Bread

This has to be one of my favorite recipes for beer bread and I love using the mini loaf pans for this. I do double this recipe for my crew. We recently made this recipe to go along with our cooking from the past recipe of Hot Collops.

Breakfast Egg biscuits

Try something new for breakfast. In our home, we like to make a whole breakfast wrapped up into one “sandwich”.  Once made the kids can grab and go. They will also stay good in the fridge and can be reheated in the oven or microwave (We don’t have a microwave, so I don’t know how long to put them in for.)…

Favorite Circus Cookie Recipe

One of my all-time favorite cookies is the Circus cookies. This is a recipe that we have been using for years.

I picked up the mini Noah’s Ark cookie cutter set (Here is the…
