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 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 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),  it 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…

The best Apple Crisp…ever…


It’s been a long time since I’ve posted because life has been so busy, but this recipe is going to allow me to come back with a bang. This recipe is awesome! You can find this recipe at AllRecipes.com and something you should know about this site is that user reviews is what is going to…

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…

Summer S’mores Cookie Bars


Don’t judge…I know my last post was preaching about how I’m doing low-calorie dieting and cooking. However, I was asked to bring a dessert to a wedding reception bbq for a couple in my life group and the bride mentioned s’mores as an idea.  So, I decided to hunt around for a recipe for a…

Olive Garden Bread…rolls


Who doesn’t love Olive Garden bread sticks?! Those fantastic things are often times the only reason I like going…that and their salad. Yum! I think these take a close 2nd to Pat & Oscar’s delicious bread sticks. If you’ve never had a chance to try the breadsticks from Pat and Oscar’s then get yourself over there this…
