PUMPKIN WEEK: Granola

PUMPKIN WEEK: Granola

Because I don’t eat enough granola (I only make it every weekend), I thought the perfect recipe to end pumpkin week with is Pumpkin Granola. Yes it sounds a little funny at first but this is my new favorite fall breakfast. And snack. And dessert. PS for those of you who are not pumpkin fans, … Continue reading

Farmer’s Markets and Babies

Farmer’s Markets and Babies

How is July already over? This summer has been going by so quickly and I feel like I’ve been spending lots of time in air conditioned buildings (100 degree weather is not my thing). One of the things I do venture outside for is the farmer’s market. It has become one of my Sunday morning … Continue reading

Blondies

Blondies

Throwback to my blonde day(s) and our staple summer vacation in Maine. I could totally go for a day spent in the sun at the lake. I could also go for a big bowl of popcorn… For now I’m just going to have to enjoy these “brownies” that I made the other day in an … Continue reading

Brown Butter & Coffee Sugar Cookies

Brown Butter & Coffee Sugar Cookies

These might just be the best cookies I’ve ever made. How could you go wrong with the combination of brown butter, coffee, and sugar? You could just use regular butter but going the extra step and browning the butter adds a deeper and nutty flavor. I made a gluten free version for my birthday and … Continue reading

Commitment Issues

I should have known I would love the combination of artichokes, sun dried tomatoes, spinach, and almonds. Add it to a big … Continue reading

This Sh*! is B-a-n-a-n-a-s

This Sh*! is B-a-n-a-n-a-s

Whenever I type the word bananas I think of Gwen Stefani and her song “Hollaback Girl” so thank you Gwen for the title of this post. The reason why I had to type bananas is because today I am sharing my favorite banana bread recipe. It’s a recipe my mom clipped from The Yankee Cook years … Continue reading

Cheesy Chicken and Rice Bake

Cheesy Chicken and Rice Bake

With lots of exciting things going on in my life, I don’t have as much time to spend in the kitchen. So this past weekend, I made a few meals that would be perfect for freezing and reheating on the nights I didn’t have the time to make a full meal. I searched on my … Continue reading

Not Your Ordinary Meatloaf

Not Your Ordinary Meatloaf

This dish is one of my favorite comfort foods and perfect for a cold night. Cold is a feeling I have not experienced in a while. As I’m writing this, it is 79 degrees here and a frigid 12 degrees at home. I think I made a wise choice moving south. (We’ll see how I feel about … Continue reading
