Last month marked three years of Sweet T Makes Three! I caught the blogging bug 5 months after becoming a mother and both events have changed my daily life tremendously. I’ll never be the same…in a good way! I have plenty of “mommy jewelry” to symbolize the love I have for my children, so when […]

Texas Toast Cornbread

Texas Toast Cornbread

Each month I meet with a group of local bloggers for lunch at a different restaurant. This month we tried out Moe’s Original BBQ and I couldn’t get enough of their cornbread! I couldn’t decide by looking at it if it was cornbread, Texas toast or biscotti, but after one bite I knew I’d be […]

Gluten Free Dairy Free Honey Oat Muffins

Hubs announced his plans for a gluten-free, dairy-free diet when I was days away from giving birth to baby #2. The thought of having to revamp the way I’d cooked my whole life while caring for a toddler and adjusting to another newborn…let’s just say it wasn’t pretty.

Slow Cooker Black-Eye Pea Soup

Slow Cooker Black-eye Pea Soup: Already gluten-free and diary-free, leave out the bacon pieces for a vegan option.

Winter is not my favorite time of year but I am taking advantage of soup season. This slow cooker soup is a real time-saver, especially if you “cheat” and use frozen chopped veggies. With two preschoolers in the house “cheating” is the only way dinner gets on the table most nights. Slow Cooker Black-Eye Pea […]
