As I’ve mentioned before, I happen to have the BEST GINGERSNAP COOKIE recipe in the world. No joke. They are soft, but perfectly chewy and a little spicy and are my absolute favorite cookie ever. I make them all the time, but sometimes I like to use the dough for more than just a simple cookie. [Read More...]
Mint will always be my favorite flavor to pair with chocolate. I can never get enough of those girl scout cookie Thin Mints(I really need to start stock piling those….when is it girl scout cookie season, again?) or mint chocolate chip ice cream, or Green & Blacks mint chocolate bars. ANYTHING mint chocolate. [Read More...]
Well, here we go with the mini desserts again. But things are just better this way, I tell you. So much easier to share
I have the perfect little elegant Autumn dessert for you: [Read More...]
I know that pumpkin season is in full swing right now. And I fully support that.
But one flavor who’s arrival I anticipate even more than pumpkin is gingerbread. It’s of those flavors that fully spans the entire holiday season, to me. Ok, so it is a little Christmas-y, but I feel like it belongs in more months than just December. [Read More...]
I’m getting pretty far away from fall-themed recipes this week. Well, except for THIS post, which is highly appropriate. But yesterday’s and today’s posts are a bit…Springy.
I know berries aren’t really(ok, definitely are not) in season any longer, but I had a family member request a strawberry cake for her birthday and y’all know I like to oblige. [Read More...]
Last night was my little sisters birthday.
I made her a normal sized cake, of course.
But you all know how I love my individual desserts. [Read More...]
SLOW COOKER CREAMY CHICKEN GNOCCHI SOUP
Using a slow cooker is currently my favorite way to make soups. Even this Olive Garden copycat can be made in one with ease.
I wouldn’t consider this a super easy soup to throw together but the slow cooker breaks up the steps and makes it seem so much more effortless. [Read More...]
I’ve been craving a good, soft cinnamon roll full of autumn flavors.
But the fact of the matter is, I’m currently feeling a bit lazy and don’t really want to spend 3 hours making the dough, letting it rise, rolling it, cutting it, letting it rise…..you know the drill.
These scones are the perfect solution. [Read More...]
One of my favorite hearty, cold weather soups is good old classic Beef Barley.
This version is even better because you can throw everything into a slow cooker and forget about it for 6 hours. After about 4 hours your house will smell amazing, which is one of my favorite things about using slow cookers. This soup is thickened to make for a more filling meal, but if you prefer your soup a little more broth-y, leave out the cornstarch. [Read More...]
When I was about 10 years old I received my first cookbook. A little book of cookie and cracker recipes published by Country Living.
I made several of the cookie recipes, here and there. The cheddar cracker recipe was quite lovely. But I found one recipe that would follow me to the ends of time( this it true, but I probably shouldn’t write posts while watching dramatic historical romances. Sorry guys.) [Read More...]
One of my favorite easy but incredibly delicious meals of all time would definitely have to be this -
PASTA CARBONARA ~QUICK & SIMPLE~
One of the greatest things in the foodie world would have to be a dish that is the combination of something that is quick and easy to prepare, taking almost no time at all, but having all of the best components. Richness, flavor, texture, color, contrast.
That is why I love this dish so much. I’ve been making it for years and it will always stay in rotation because it is all of those things listed above. So quick to make, it literally takes no more than 15 minutes from the moment your pasta water starts to boil. AND the ingredients used are things I almost always have on hand. [Read More...]
I guess bars have become my new favorite dessert.
Maybe it’s because they’re easy to throw together and serve. [Read More...]
