My sister sent me a picture from a magazine 2 years ago and I just got reminded of it recently (by her- thanks Bec!) I had always wanted to do this, but never got around to it. I thought this was a great thing to share for Thanksgiving week because many will argue that fresh,…

I know this is close to blasphemy, but I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin pie. (Okay, that’s not close to blasphemy at all, but it does seem a bit inappropriate this time of year, doesn’t it?) And like a lot of people who share that opinion, it’s not so much a taste issue for…

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…

I am in love. With these soft and chewy ginger spice cookies. These are 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….

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. Have you seen those amazingly gorgeous caramel apples at places like Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory but you haven’t felt like shelling out $8 for some tastier-than-average produce? Well, today’s your day. These…

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…

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 Chipotle Chocolate Chili for the first time last year and both of them ate it up. Willingly. And then they…

Remember a few posts ago when Kate asked what your ultimate fall food was? The one you just absolutely HAVE to make when the leaves start turning? The one that says, “Fall is here and I want to savor every second of it” ? Well this is mine. And it wins by a landslide. Just…

Mmmm…Roasted Garlic. It’s pretty much culinary gold, and considering how incredibly easy it is, I’m surprised more people don’t do it. When you roast garlic it becomes caramelized, sweeter, more mild, and dare I say – more mouthwatering than garlic already is. The fab thing about roasting garlic is that it’s flexible. Chances are you…

Recently Kate and I had the opportunity to test out several new products from Pillsbury (you know we didn’t hesitate to say yes to that offer!) One of the products is the new Crescent Recipe Creations. (Check out that link for tons of great recipes) Basically, it’s their well-known crescent dough, but without perforations. It’s…

Okay, so do you remember how months ago, I asked if I should post the Fauxtisserie Chicken or Texas Sheet Cake? Heck, most of you probably weren’t even around back then! Anyway, today’s your day; I’ve had this baby sitting on my computer for months now. Now…I have a little secret for y’all. I’m doing…
