Spinach, Roasted Red Pepper, and Feta Turkey Wrap + A Cookie Giveaway

I typically think of summer as the season for sandwiches. It's difficult to beat a classic BLT with fat, juicy, tomatoes and fresh from the garden lettuce. Our gardens may be frost-bitten by now, but that doesn't mean we have to give up on the sandwich, and this Spinach, Roasted Red Pepper, and Feta Turkey Wrap is [...]

This Easy Creamy Italian Pasta is as cozy and familiar as my favorite cardigan. You'll want to eat it all fall and winter long. This past weekend we finally finished up our bedroom remodel and moved all of our clothes over into our new closets. Can I just tell you how amazing it is to have extra closet space? This [...]

This Sour Cream Banana Bread beat out the competitors and won the hearts of a room full of women. It really is the best! I'm not sure why exactly I agreed to do another wedding cake. I got swept up in the moment, I suppose. My mind started buzzing as soon as I heard the [...]

Caramelized Onion and Spinach Artichoke Quesadillas

Caramelized Onion and Spinach Artichoke Quesadillas thumbnail

Spinach artichoke dip lends extra creaminess to these vegetarian quesadillas packed with caramelized onions and peppers.  I have a confession to make. There's a good reason why there's only one other quesadilla recipe on this site. It's because I was terrified to make them. It wasn't the components of the quesadilla itself. I can sprinkle [...]

White Chocolate Pretzel Pumpkin Cookies

White Chocolate Pretzel Pumpkin Cookies thumbnail

These Chewy White Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies get just the right amount of salt and spice from pretzels, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.  I must be the last blogger in the world to start posting pumpkin recipes. Sorry, guys, but it just didn't feel right until the clock struck October. September is for apples. October is for pumpkin. November is [...]

Salted Maple Caramel Apple Pecan Tart

Salted Maple Caramel Apple Pecan Tart thumbnail

This Caramel Apple Pecan Tart is warmly spiced and begging for a scoop of ice cream. It's my belly's preferred method of welcoming October. Is it just me or does fall trigger a baking fever in you too? As soon as the weather starts to cool, I'm ready to fire up the oven, cover myself in [...]

Chicken and Mushroom Wild Rice Pilaf

This post is sponsored by Harvestland. As always, all opinions are my own. This Chicken and Mushroom Wild Rice Pilaf is a family favorite and the ultimate comfort food for a chilly evening.

Mom’s Green Bean Chili

This fun Green Bean Chili is an easy one pot meal that's kid friendly too! I've mentioned before I was kind of a picky kid. I always tell myself my future children won't be picky. They'll love eating a variety of healthy and delicious foods, and they'll never complain or refuse to try something new. And [...]

Grilled Banana Fluffernutter Sandwiches

What could be better than a peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwich? How about a golden Grilled Fluffernutter with melty peanut butter and banana slices? Yeah, that's better. It officially turned fall this week, and I'm welcoming the new season with apple pie scented candles, camping trips, and elastic waisted pants. Let's be honest. Fall [...]

Summer may be ending, but that doesn't mean we have to stop eating ice cream. These Caramel Apple Cider Ginger Ale Floats are the perfect excuse to eat ice cream all season long.  Last year, the Mr. and I discovered apple cider and ginger ale taste really great together. I don't know why it took [...]

Pear, Honey, and Cheddar Biscuits

These tasty little Pear, Honey, and Cheese Biscuits are an easy appetizer for a party, but don't be surprised if you eat enough to turn them into a main dish. The Mr. and I have a funny little habit of turning appetizers into entrees. When we go out to eat, we love to order several [...]

Slow Cooker Rosemary and Mushroom Pot Roast

Let the crock pot do all the work for you with this savory, comforting Slow Cooker Rosemary Mushroom Pot Roast. This weekend I made another wedding cake.

Apple Crumb Coffee Cake

Apple Crumb Coffee Cake thumbnail

Ease into fall with this buttery coffee cake studded with apples and finished with a crunchy cinnamon crumb topping. This morning when I walked out the door the air felt...different. I was wearing shorts and a T-shirt and while I wasn't uncomfortably cold, something made me run back inside and grab a sweatshirt. Slipping into a [...]

Panko Crusted Chicken Piccata

Crunchy Panko Crusted Chicken Piccata gets a simple lemon butter dressing for a dish that's satisfying and elegant.

These Grilled Flank Steak Sandwiches piled high with caramelized onions and mushrooms are just my way of saying "I love you." Have you ever heard of the five love languages? It was a really popular book back in the 90s, or at least it was in the church circles I was a part of. The book [...]

This Peach Slump with Maple Caramel Sauce is my seasons-change-without-my-permission compromise. I refuse to let peach season go, but this Maple Caramel Sauce has me ready to break out my boots and start planning my Halloween costume.
