First of all, have you checked out our Halloween Party Food Post?? It is full of amazing (and easy!!) ideas! I mean, hello Mummy Dogs and creepy finger cheese! On the less spooky side, this is one of my favorite party foods ever. I’ve met lots of people who have a recipe for this and none of…

Okay, so did any of you watch The Next Food Network Star during the summer of 2008? You know, with Kelsey, the perky little blonde girl (and now that it’s 6 years after I wrote this post, you know, Kelsey who has a best-selling cookbook and her own show on The Cooking Channel and an…

Are you ready for a serious confession? I don’t like pumpkin pie.   That may come as a surprise since I’m obsessed with things like this and this and this. Also a surprise when considering that this time of year, I spend about 85% of my available brain power trying to discover new ways to…

These are individual-sized pies made in little glass jars that can go straight from your freezer to your oven to your mouth. SO cute. You can make these with store-bought crust and canned filling or jazz it up with homemade like we do.   And just for added cuteness we teamed up with crafting expert Lolly…

You know what I’ve been doing this week? Welcoming in Autumn. It’s now September 24th, which means it’s officially acceptable to flood my house with pumpkins and gourds and sunflowers and cinnamon candles even if it is still over 90 degrees outside. And that I did, all the while cranking the AC and putting pots…

Okay, so…over the last year-and-a-half, Sara and I have posted nearly 300 recipes. 300. And not a single one of them contains cream of chicken, cream of mushroom, cream of celery, cream of ANYTHING soup. It’s kind of something we’ve prided ourselves on, not because we’re gigantic food snobs or anything, but mostly because a…

So it’s Thursday, but I thought it was only fair to post this recipe today since people in Utah get to see me cook it on TV! If you want to catch it, my (very short-really, don’t blink or you’ll miss it) segment will air Thursday Sept. 17th some time between 11am-12. I’ll do my…

So I have this friend Tara. Sweet, quiet, soft-spoken Tara who home schools her kids and is the person in charge of the children’s programs at our church. You know the type. Turns out she has a dark side. She and her husband sometimes watch Arrested Development and 30 Rock into the wee hours of…

Some of you may be wondering why there is an image of Michael Scott, branch manager of Dunder Mifflen Scranton, on the beginning of this post. Well let me start by saying that this isn’t actually Sara typing, it’s her husband Eric. If you’re an avid reader of this blog you may feel like you…

Okay, so I think I’m about to be mocked here. I’m all Miss Foodiepants and everything, but up until about a year ago, it had never even dawned on me to put coleslaw and pickles on BBQ pork sandwiches. Seriously. I was at one of those roadhouse-style restaurants where you can pick your own steak…

I can’t believe we’re into September already! I figure before the onslaught of comfy cozy fall food hits around here (and trust me when I tell you it’s coooommmming! I’m giddy just thinking about it) I’d post one more great burger recipe. Not that you can’t make burgers year-round, you certainly can, but there is…

Okay, remember our discussion of “The One” a couple of weeks ago? You know, where Sara was talking about “the one” zucchini bread? Well, I have been on the quest for “The One” coleslaw–the one to rule them all–for as long as I’ve been cooking. You know, the one for potlucks and piling atop sandwiches…
