So I will admit, my life hasn’t really changed that much since this whole social distancing, quarantine life thing started. I already work out of the home and Hubby is considered “essential”. I don’t have a social life, so I’m home all the time anyway. Only difference is Haylie is home, but she’s also home all summer, so it’s basically like summer in March lol....
however, with grocery stores bare and who knows what the future holds when it comes to leaving our houses, we can never have too many simple, quarantine recipes stocked up!
If things get rough out there & you have a sweet tooth, my quarantine peanut butter cookies are here to save the day. 3 ingredients. They honestly taste pretty yummy considering how simple of a recipe this is!!!!
• 1 Cup Peanut Butter
• 1 Cup Sugar
• 1 Egg
Preheat over to 325 degrees. Add peanut butter, sugar and egg to a mixing bowl. Mix well.
Roll into 1 Tbs sized balls and place e on a non-stock baking sheet or parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Slightly press each ball down with a spoon. Then with a fork, press down on each ball of dough to flatten, creating a criss-cross pattern.
Bake for 12 minutes. Remove from oven. Let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes and then transfer to a wire rack. Serve & enjoy!
Hippity, hoppity, Easter's on its way!!! Now that all things St.Patrick’s Day are out of the way, time to focus on Easter!!!! With all of us stuck in quarantine, it’s the perfect time to chef up delicious treats with the kiddos!!!!
My daughter begged for Peeps Cereal last time we were at the market, and I knew she wouldn’t actually eat it! She is the pickiest eater ever, #AutismMomProbz , but the cereal was so cute!!! I just had to snag a box for her. I’m not exactly a cereal gal, but I do love all things marshmallow! Heck, you can smother anything in gooy marshmallow and I would devour it so we made Peeps Cereal Marshmallow Treats! So yum!!! So easy to make!!! Perfect for Easter!!!
• 1/2 Stick Butter
• 10 oz. Bag Marshmallows

In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted.
Slowly add Peeps Cereal to marshmallow.
Using a spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into a non-stick pan coated with cooking spray or silicone pan.
Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.

Cooking with my beloved champagne is literally my favorite! Last year while making my favorite March dish, Corned Beef! I just happened to be drinking a little bubbly with the family and decided to splash some into the crockpot. Best decision ever since the brisket came out tasting so tasty! Everyone loves it!!!!
So obviously this year I had to grab a corned beef as soon as I spotted them on sale at the market and make my new creation for y’all!!!! It came out just as tasty as last year, so if champagne is your guilty pleasure, pour some into your crockpot and have a boujee St. Patricks Day!
