Of all the cookie recipes in the world, I tend to go back to the same kind over and over again (and I suspect you do, too!)  The classic chocolate chip.  A good chocolate chip cookie recipe is in my mind the best “base cookie” recipe to start with when you want to try a fun new…

So right before Christmas, I ran into Ulta to get my eyebrows waxed and left with dry shampoo, face oil, moisturizer, lip balm, a lip crayon, and about 42 samples, none of which were things I needed or actually went in for. Yes, I do realize that makes me sound like a privileged first-world brat….

I’ve been working on re-organizing our recipe index lately (after 9 years of blogging we have a LOT of recipes and some sections are kind of a mess!)  and through the process I’ve been unearthing so many oldie-but-goodies.  I texted Kate yesterday saying you know a recipe needs refreshing when it has our old “signatures”…

So many of you know that I’ve lived in Louisiana for 9 years, but I’m not from here. I’m a Utah girl, who ate cream of wheat and oatmeal for breakfast and while I had heard of grits (kind of like cream of wheat, made with corn instead of wheat), I kind of thought they didn’t…

I belong to a doughnut family.  A family that will choose doughnuts over all other sweet confections.  They routinely ask for doughnuts in place of a birthday cake (#momwin), as rewards, and in place of any general meal.   And while we love a real, good doughnut, I’ve also found they get just as excited…

I am a hummus fangirl. I love it in a borderline obsessive way. And we have a lot of recipes for various hummuses–we have a great basic recipe in our first cookbook, we have roasted red pepper hummus, we have black bean hummus, edamame hummus. If you can hummus it, chances are we’ve done it….

What I really wanted to title this post is 2-ingredient-easiest-you’ll-ever-make-super-soft-and-fluffy-amazing-biscuits, but it seemed…wordy.   We love a good biscuit around here and we have some amazing recipes.  We’ve got these Classic Southern Buttermilk Biscuits, these giant, pillowy-soft Cathead Biscuits (weird name, great biscuit),  these easy Buttermilk Cheddar Biscuits, and these quick  Cheddar Cornmeal Biscuits.  I…

There are different trains of thought when it comes to New Year’s Resolutions.  Some people say they’re silly or cliche, or that they’re even a mechanism to set yourself up for failure.  I for one love the advent of a new year and the fresh perspective it brings.  There’s something cathartic about flipping that calendar…

I vividly remember the first time I had a “German Pancake”.  I was a little girl and my parents had gone out of town and one of my favorite babysitters, Amy Arneson, was staying with us.  She asked if we had ever had German Pancakes and I wondered what that could possibly mean.  We had…
