So a few weeks ago when we received our products from Pillsbury, I had grand visions of all the magical things I could do with them. And then I used them up before I could try everything I had in my brain (and in my fridge). And then I couldn’t find any of the Pillsbury crescent roll sheets at my friendly neighborhood grocery stores (in the sticks), so I started thinking in another direction. I have a yummy, yummy crumb-topped …

I am in love. With these cookies. It’s the kind of cookie that you need in your cookie jar. And if you don’t have a cookie jar, it’s the type of cookie you should buy one for. I didn’t even know I was a ginger-spice-molasses type person, until I ate these. I looked at the recipe and it looked pretty basic so I was trying to think of something to snazz them up. I thought about sandwiching them with cream …

Yeah, yeah, I get it. Caramel apples aren’t exactly earth-shattering or anything. But there are caramel apples and then there are caramel apples.

…or white chocolate covered popcorn with candy corn,peanuts, and peanut butter candies. But MoNsTeR mUnCh sounds way more fun and Halloween-ish, right? Have you noticed that I have a popcorn mix for every season?? It’s because they’re so great. It makes a ton, pleases everyone, and involves no cooking! Can’t beat that. This one mixes sweet and salty- a combo I LOVE. If you’ve never bought almond bark before, you can find it in most normal grocery stores in the …

Did you even know that cornbread could be naughty? I mean, cornbread is about as plain and wholesome as it gets. But here’s my deal: in case you haven’t noticed, I have a little bit of a sweet tooth. I also think that sometimes, cornbread is too crumbly to enjoy eating. This super-complicated recipe takes care of both of those things–combining a yellow cake mix with a through-and-through cornbread mix cuts some of the down-home gritty crumbliness of regular cornbread …

Okay, for any of you who have been reading for awhile, you’ll know that I have uber-picky eaters at my house, namely my husband and my son. So imagine my surprise when I made this chili for the first time last year and both of them ate it up. Willingly. And then they had more. And then my husband told me that this was THE chili recipe he’d been longing for the whole time we’d been married. So imagine his …

Now if you haven’t noticed, Kate and I are practical girls. We …

Chicken soup like your mom used to make. Literally, your mom. At my house growing up, chicken soup came from a red and white Campbell’s soup can. I remember the first time I had homemade chicken soup and truly, it was one of the best things I’d ever eaten. It was comfort in a bowl. And it can’t be replicated, no matter how hard Progresso tries. Now…living in the South, the idea is that chicken and dumplings or chicken noodle …
