Cloverleaf Dinner Rolls

Cloverleaf Dinner Rolls are slightly sweet, soft and fluffy.

Cloverleaf Dinner Rolls
                Homemade bread was always a staple in my house growing up and Cloverleaf Dinner Rolls happened to be the first style of rolls I learned to make and still one of my favorites.
I find such comfort in a good roll and love having lots of different options dependent on my mood.
Cloverleaf Rolls are so easy to shape and I love breaking them into pieces for easy buttering or dipping into gravy.
These rolls are slightly sweet, soft and fluffy, perfect to go with soups, stews or your holiday meal.
The kids love to devour the leftovers for breakfast with a little jam or honey.
I always use my mixer to knead the dough but the kneading could be done by hand if a mixer with a dough attachment isn't available until the dough is smooth and elastic.
A few of my other favorite roll recipes are French Bread Dinner Rolls for when I'm in the mood for something crusty and Hawaiian Dinner Rolls when I'm craving pineapple sweet rolls from the grocery store.

Agave Peach Moscow Mule Mocktails

This post is sponsored by Madhava Sweeteners. Although this is a sponsored post all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Our kids love to help in the kitchen and right now Madhava's is hosting a kids sweet in the kitchen contest.
If your sweetie loves sweets as much as mine all you have to do is snap a photo of your child or one you know holding a Madhava product or eating a sweet treat and submit it Here.
We had fun in the kitchen the other night making Agave Peach Moscow Mule Mocktails as an extra special treat. 
In case you've never heard of a Mocktail before it's an alcohol free version of a cocktail, perfect for baby showers, family gatherings or just a special treat.
The Agave Ginger Peach combo makes these a fall favorite but perfect year around with the sweetness of the peaches and the spice of ginger.

Crock Pot Hot Fudge Cake

A sweet and chocolaty cake with a hot fudge sauce made in the crock pot.

Crock Pot Hot Fudge Cake
              Colt and I celebrated 15 years of marriage last week and we decide to have a simple evening in.
We usually go out someplace and make a big night of our anniversary or weekend but this year we spent the actual night at home eating dinner and dessert with the kids and then snuggled on the couch to watch Thursday night football.
After 15 years and 3 kids we've gotten to the point that it doesn't matter what we do so much as we are spending time together and having fun.
Plus we had the previous weekend alone.
 When you have kids having the house to yourself for a night or two is like a dream come true! 
And since we were celebrating we had to have dessert, otherwise it's not really a celebration.
So I decided to make a Crock Pot Hot Fudge Cake with Lorna's help since I was having a massive chocolate craving and it's super simple to put together.
It's a sweet chocolaty cake that floats to the top over a layer of fudgy sauce.
It definitely requires a scoop of ice cream to round out the richness and it's great for company since it's made ahead of time and requires very little supervision.
