SYRIAN DONUTS

By Jenna Winegeart / April 19, 2020 /

My sweet tooth is pretty intense– I really think there will be a special table in heaven covered in pies of all colors & flavors for constant snacking like at your family Christmas reunion. Only in heaven, you never worry about eating too much because the ingredients are actually holy, so you never feel sick…

ELDERBERRY SYRUP

By Jenna Winegeart / February 3, 2020 /

I live in Texas, you guys. In Texas, we have to rely on outside resources to teach our kids about the four seasons because we only experience 2 3/4 of them. We’ve got an A+ in summer. No brainer there. Spring is fine. That’s kind of the bridge of not needing heavy coats & still…

CHOCOLATE FILLED SPICE COOKIES

By Jenna Winegeart / November 2, 2019 /

You know what goes really well with chilly, fall weather? Baking. Give me all the cinnamon & vanilla & ginger & nutmeg! Baking signals the start of the holidays for me– a warm, spicy aroma in the kitchen with music or a fun movie playing in the background. I’m notching a change in baking with…

CHOCOLATE ZUCCHINI MUFFINS

By Jenna Winegeart / September 26, 2019 /

    I’m just going to cut straight to the secret, you guys– this is the closest you can get to eating dessert for breakfast while still consuming something healthy. Whether you like eating zucchini or not, zucchini has a magical component when it comes to baking…you can’t actually taste it, & yet it amplifies…

By Jenna Winegeart / September 25, 2019 /

Whether you make your kids’ lunches the morning of, the night before, or all at the beginning of the week, trying to figure out how to fill that lunchbox can make you feel like your brain is going to explode. I don’t do anything fancy– you won’t find sandwiches cut into unicorns here. The five…

OAT & HONEY BARS

By Jenna Winegeart / September 8, 2019 /

Alas….it’s Sunday evening & the blazing September sun is setting on another weekend. Do you feel bummed about the weekend ending, or do you get excited for the possibilities of the week ahead? I’ll admit, I’ve trained myself to dread Mondays. Sunday afternoon rolls around, & I get sad… kind of like when I realize…

CINNAMON RASIN BREAD

By Jenna Winegeart / September 3, 2019 /

I love baking…way more than cooking. During my senior year of college, I looked into Le Cordon Bleu’s pastry school in Austin (but then again, I also looked into the English program at Oxford…nobody will ever say I didn’t dream the dreams!). If I’m baking with a small sous chef, it’s fun & keeps me…

CHOCOLATE OATMEAL BREAKFAST CAKE

By Jenna Winegeart / August 26, 2019 /

Breakfast has always been my favorite, even when it looked like a bowl of cereal. Shoot, I love cereal. But it leaves something to be desired in the actual filling up your body & fueling it part. So when it comes to my kids, I have two questions: 1) Does it fuel their bodies? 2)…

The kids’ last day of Mother’s Day Out was today so summer has officially begun in our house! We kicked off the season with a surprise field trip to Chuck E. Cheese (It was as much of a surprise to me as it was to them….they wanted to celebrate with ice cream, & I was…

GLUTEN FREE CINNAMON ROLLS

By Jenna Winegeart / May 13, 2019 /

When I was pregnant with Jude, I had horrible eczema. I’ve dealt with it the majority of my life, but this was the worst it has ever been. Thinking it could very well be diet related, I cut out gluten (& maybe dairy & coffee for part of that?? I don’t even remember anymore…). Well…
