It’s Flashback Friday time! I’m not exactly sure why this is called Spanish Rice. Pretty sure none of these ingredients are actually Spanish. And this isn’t rice like anything I’ve ever had in a Mexican restaurant (and yes, I do understand that “Spanish” and “Mexican” are two different things.) But it’s still one of my…

So my husband and I have a slight obsession with King Arthur Flour.  I love their products (not sponsored, just love!) and they are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to both education and also solid, reliable recipes.  I feel they’re right up there with America’s Test Kitchen, but they get a little less…

When I was a poor college student, I worked at a bakery that, among other things, was famous for their pumpkin bread. One day, I brought a loaf home and proceeded to basically eat almost all of it and then said that I gave it to the neighbors. That was a lie. But when it…

Electric Pellet Smokers are kind of all the rage these days, who has one??  If you don’t- DON’T LEAVE! (Sorry to yell…too dramatic??)

Those of you following me on Instagram came along on a trip I took with my husband a couple weeks ago:  a cruise to Alaska on Princess Cruises.  I shared a lot of our day-to-day on Instastories and I honestly have never had a response to a travel series as massive as I did this time. SO…

Somehow, it’s fall again and I’m kind of in denial that it is actually happening. But it is, which means it’s also the most wonderful time of the year for desserts–apple and pumpkin are BACK, yo, and today I’m sharing some of our favorite fall-ish desserts! (Clockwise, starting in the top lefthand corner): 1. Apple Spice…

I’ve really been trying to eat all my veggies lately, but sometimes I start getting a little tired of the same dips and dressings over and over again. I know. First world problems. But sometimes you can’t just do the same ranch dressing again and again. This is one of my favorite dips and dressings,…

Wait, what was that you said?  It’s been forever since I posted anything about pizza??  Oh my gosh, I KNOW.  Okay fine it’s all I talk about.  It’s because I made that most amazing dough in the history of ever and then when I had a bunch of dough to play around with I made…

This is one of those recipes on Our Best Bites that has become kind of legendary. In my own personal life, these are known as “THE COOKIES.” As in, “Kate’s bringing THE COOKIES.” These cookies are responsible for more friendships, good relationships with teachers, and repayment of favors than anything else in my life. If…

You guys.  Promise me that before peach season is over completely you will make this pizza.  It’s the kind of thing you awkwardly moan while you chew because it’s so flipping good.  Remember the Neapolitan style crust I shared on Monday?  (If you missed  it, click here).  It’s that authentic brick oven style crust that’s…
