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.

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

Ode to the Egg: Benedict Style


I have always loved eggs benedict. I think it’s the hollandaise sauce that really brings the whole thing together and is the “something different” needed to make it more special than a typical egg dish…ah…love it. My family use to make it on Sundays for brunch when we were in the mood to work on…

Canning Attempt 1: Peach Jam


It is peach season and our tree is overflowing with peaches. Last year I wanted to cook and bake with them, but I didn’t make the time for it. These peaches on this tree are amazing and my favorite version of them is right off the tree when they are juicy and warm from the…
