Sweet Tea Mules – a southern twist on the classic mule. Sweet tea vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice! So easy and so delicious!

Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all!

I made drinks for those of us that will be spending it alone. Let’s all get heart shaped pizzas and have Sweet Tea Mules while we watch Netflix with our dogs.

I am such a Valentine’s Day scrooge and I don’t really know why.

I love everything pink and glittery and covered in hearts, I bought myself the most gorgeous orange tulips yesterday because everyone has beautiful flowers right now and I can’t say no, and I will 100% be stalking the local cupcake place to see if they have Valentine’s Day themed cupcakes but still, I just don’t love Valentine’s Day.

Pizza Muffins - only 5 ingredients! Canned biscuits pressed into a muffin tin and filled with pizza sauce, pepperoni, and cheese! Kids love these!

Is this cheating?

You guys, it’s all I had time for this week. Plus, I know ya’ll love a quick and easy recipe every once in a while. Five ingredients, nothing to prepare in advance, and kids love them.

So how was the week? We had another busy one because of the move. We were back and forth a lot and I had to get power and water and I still haven’t had time to get a mailbox but that’s number 1 on the list for tomorrow. And it’s stupid cold in Texas again and I just don’t want to go anywhere or do anything because I am not made to function in cold climates.

Freezing rain this morning, guys.

Freezing. Rain.

I’m not cut out for it.

Truly don’t know how I survived in Colorado for 4 years.

Hi guys, I don’t usually post on the weekends but I’ve been holding onto the photos for this Loaded Baked Potato and Cauliflower Soup for weeks now and wanted to get it post while the weather is terrible and we’re all freezing.

I had plans today, got all the kids in the car, and then immediately drove home after putting gas in the car because I literally couldn’t.

Too cold for me.

Everyone keeps saying, “Amanda, it’s February, of course it’s cold” but y’all, last February I was wearing sleeveless dresses in New Orleans during Mardi Gras and not complaining about it being too cold to have a Jeep.

Summer needs to hurry.

Pizza - La Roma Pizza & Subs, Temple, TX

Okay.

I didn’t make a pizza this week because we moved and I didn’t tell you we were moving because I am the kind of weirdo that gets scared of jinxing things if I talk about them.

But you guys.

I love our new house so much and it’s in the the town I used to drive around and hope that one day, if I stayed in Texas, I’d move to.  And it’s right down the street from the lake and stupid close to my favorite taco truck.

I couldn’t be happier.

It’s really only about 40 minutes from where we were but if you’ve ever been to Killeen, you know what a difference a 40 minute drive makes.

Last night was our first official night here and everything is still in boxes which is why there’s no pizza this week. Best boyfriend ever did pick up pizza from a local place so it still counts, right?

M&Ms Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies – soft and delicious cookies with chocolate chips and M&Ms! 

M&Ms Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies - soft and delicious cookies with chocolate chips and M&Ms! I make these over and over!

I’m just not a cookie person.

I would choose cake, a slice of pie, a handful of gummy bears, pretty much any other sweet over a cookie.

The exception to that rule is the one or 2 times a year when the only thing I can think about is grocery store bakery M&Ms cookies.

You know the ones, right?

They’re super soft and somehow every grocery store in the country makes them exactly the same way?

Yeah, those.

When I get a random craving for one of them, nothing fixes it but getting those cookies.

I can remember leaving my house in a snowstorm in Colorado because I needed these cookies to survive the day.

Fritos and grocery store bakery M&Ms cookies are the only things that I was ever willing to leave my house for during a snowstorm.

Y’all remember those days? When I was too scared to drive in the snow so we would walk to school every day? Granted, it was a short walk but still. I was terrified to drive in the snow for the first several years we were there.

Anyway.
