Toffee Grahams   ||   Homemade in a Hurry

Toffee Grahams || Homemade in a Hurry

Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best. And it doesn’t get much simpler or better than these Toffee Grahams. When I was in high school I developed a borderline addiction to these little treasures and several of my friends did as well. It got so […]

Philadelphia Sticky Buns

Philadelphia Sticky Buns

I have been dying to make these Philadelphia Sticky Buns for about a year now, but I knew I wanted them to be a breakfast idea for Christmas morning. Christmas is pretty much the only day that it is completely OK to bombard your arteries […]

Cheesy Spinach and Bacon Breakfast Squares

Cheesy Spinach and Bacon Breakfast Squares

Does breakfast planning fall through the cracks when you’re getting ready for company? I usually thaw a package of English muffins (anyone else hoard them when they are BOGO?) and make sure we have some eggs ready for guests to prepare to their liking. Oh, […]

Cranberry Sorbet

Cranberry Sorbet

For many people, myself included, the cranberry sauce element of Thanksgiving dinner is quite the afterthought. Judge away, but I happen to love the cranberry jelly right out of the can, still in the shape of the can. Although it doesn’t look like much, I’ve […]

Apple and Herb Stuffing

Apple and Herb Stuffing

Stuffing and dressing and filling, oh my! These days it seems like no one can agree on anything, and this Thanksgiving staple is no different. I’d much rather discuss the discord in naming our Thanksgiving sides than discuss the disagreements of our current political climate. While […]

Hamburger and Hominy Helper

Why is naming someone or something so difficult? Loving a name isn’t enough. If you know someone who gives you a bad association with a name it might turn you off completely. Or in our case, you might have a name for a dog picked […]

Maple Sweet Potatoes  ||  Homemade in a Hurry

Maple Sweet Potatoes || Homemade in a Hurry

It’s just about that time of year! Where we take something perfectly healthy, and do our best to make it decadent while turning a blind eye to calorie count. Green beans, for example — stir in some cream of mushroom soup, fried onions, and bacon and you’ve gone from a nutritious […]

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bread

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bread

I know Halloween originated as a day to remember the saints, martyrs, and the faithfully departed. But this year I am too spooked by things like figuring out pre-school Halloween party logistics and complaining about ridiculously expensive Halloween candy (why is it so expensive these days!?). Not […]

Carpool Apple Betty

Carpool Apple Betty

A recipe can be like a game of telephone. One person passes their famous recipe on to the members of their book club, those bookworms make some changes then pass their versions on to their kids, those kiddos grow up and make changes over time, […]

Pumpkin Pasta Sauce with Sausage and Sage

Pumpkin Pasta Sauce with Sausage and Sage

We can sip on a pumpkin spice latte, bake a pumpkin pie for dessert, sniff pumpkin scented candles, and dress up our babies as pumpkins for Halloween. But I have decided it is high time we have a pumpkin option for dinner. Pumpkin Pasta Sauce […]
