Hot Chocolate Pops

Hot Chocolate Pops

Can we agree that the worst part of drinking hot chocolate is waiting long enough for the piping hot mug of coziness to cool down? But not too long so that it is no longer “hot” chocolate. Lukewarm easy-chug hot chocolate is just not cozy, […]

What is your favorite thing about football? The thrill of competition? The sportsmanship? An exciting game between rivals? For me, it’s the snacks. Not that I don’t enjoy the game because I do like football. But I reallllllly enjoy the snacks. These Beef Picadillo Nachos […]

Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

There is nothing more comforting than a chocolate chip cookie. Maybe chicken noodle soup when you’re sick, I guess. But I’ve never met anyone who didn’t love a good CCC. I’ve had Granny’s recipe for these cookies on the docket for a long time now, […]

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 […]

Granny’s Pine Nut Pesto || Homemade in a Hurry

Everyone has a pesto recipe somewhere in their family. And in my (fairly limited, to be honest) research, I haven’t seen major variation among pesto recipes. Most have basil, some kind of nuts, olive oil, garlic, etc. I don’t claim to know what is the […]

Granny’s Golden Apple Fritters with Honey Glaze

Granny’s Golden Apple Fritters with Honey Glaze

It has been said that Americans will deep fry just about anything. But I really don’t know anyone who wants to deep fry anything. The words deep fry, to me, are synonymous with calories and a messy stove top. However, in an effort to use […]

Chocolate Chip Banana Pudding

Chocolate Chip Banana Pudding

Do you have those favorite fast-food chain restaurants for your road trips, but avoid them if they are attached to a gas station? I have to admit that I am guilty of this. Or at least I was until I had the most delicious banana […]

Parmesan Crusted Eggplant

Parmesan Crusted Eggplant

There’s an old wive’s tale that eating eggplant at the end of a pregnancy can induce labor. To be honest, I’d never had eggplant before, but once I hit 39 weeks pregnant, I ate eggplant for almost every meal in hopeful desperation. It did nothing […]
