3 Super Bowl Snack Mixes


I’m a salty snack food junkie. The chip aisle is my enemy and snack mixs are a vice of the worst caliber. But all rules about shopping down the dreaded salty snack aisle go right out the window for special occasions and, folks, Superbowl is on Sunday! And in my family it counts as a…

Resolution Recipe 17: Cheddar Swirl Breakfast Buns


Well, ladies and gentleman, here is the final breakfast recipe that you’ll find in Deb Perelman’s cookbook, The Smitten Kitchen. I’m a little sad that this chapter is over, but excited to jump into salads in my next post! This final recipe is one of the best that she’s got. She describes this recipe as…

Recipe Box Series: Bananna Bread


Okay…I’m excited :) I decided to do a new mini series! I’ll be doing it along side the Resolution Recipe series I’ve been plugging away at for the past…4+ years. Embarrassing. I’m calling this new series the “Recipe Box Series”. I kind of grieve the days of cooking where we wrote down recipes and put…

Resolution Recipe 12: Greens, Eggs, and Hollandaise


Another Saturday another breakfast! This is recipe number 2 so far that has called for a cheese cloth. And my kitchen still does not have one :) I’m being 50% rebellious on not buying one, 25% fugile since buying one feels like such a luxury kitchen item right now, and the other 25% of me…

Resolution Recipe 10: Maple Bacon Biscuits


I’m loving this process of cooking through Deb’s cookbook again! Dusting it off to dive in again while in this new season of life has been good for my soul. I now have a person to cook for who will ooh and ahh over all the “hard” work I put into these recipes. And I…

Resolution Recipe 8: Apricot Breakfast Crisp


We’re back! I’m really excited to have dusted off my cookbook and start back into working through it one recipe at a time. The last time I made one of these recipes was in 2014. That’s 3 years ago and when I was still dating my husband. A LOT of life has happened since then…

Resolution Recipe 6: Chocolate Chip Brioche Pretzels


I am not going to lie…this recipe killed me in so many ways. I earn my novice status with many recipes but my badge should be gold after making these. I know they may look like pretzels and they may even look good to the untrained eye, but I had so many issues with this…

Resolution Recipe 5: Whole-Wheat Raspberry Ricotta Scones


Back to the blogging! Feels like it’s been awhile, but oddly enough I’ve been in the kitchen more then usual so I have a few posts coming your way. Let’s start with this one! I made these scones back on February 1st. I think I made more mistakes with these then I would have liked,…

Resolution Recipe 4: Gingerbread Spice Dutch Baby


If you’re looking for a simple and fun breakfast idea that is outside of the norm, then try this little guy. Such a quick and easy thing to throw together and the sky is the limit for what you can add Deb has one on her website that is great for this season since cherries…

Resolution Recipe 3: Plum Poppy Seed Muffins


Okay, we’re back in business! Happy to be blogging once again. Thanks for your patience loyal readers. I hope this is worth it! I actually just made these muffins yesterday because even though this recipe was next in the book (back in January), ┬áit wasn’t plum season. I figured I would postpone this recipe and…

Resolution Recipe 2: Cinnamon Toast French Toast


Recipe 2 is complete and I’m excited to say how easy this resolution has been so far. It’s always a major drag to start a New Year’s Resolution and within the first week you know just how hard it is going to be to keep it up. However, before I get too excited, let’s consider…

Resolution Recipe 1: Peachy Sour Cream Pancakes!


Happy New Year! Hope you had a wonderful time celebrating with family and friends! It’s time to get started with resolutions and I’m happy to say that I’ve made it into day two and been mostly successful….I’ll take it :o) As you know (since you’re a faithful follower of this blog…), one of my New…
