Sara and I have been blogging for almost 10 years now. That’s a long time, y’all. I was talking to a friend who had been dating someone for about that long and told them that was, like, dating, a marriage, a kid or two, and a divorce. So you’d think we would have a Honey…

If I had to pick one and only one fall dessert that I’d eat forever, it would be Apple Crisp, hands-down.  It’s the quintessential autumnal comfort food with its warm spiced apples and crisp buttery topping.  It’s my go-to dessert when having friends over, or needing a quick family dessert.  Several years ago when I…

This is a big day, you guys. Chipotle Chocolate Chili has been on our blog since 2008, the very first year we started blogging. It has won chili cook-offs. It has been a perennial favorite. It is beloved and a favorite (and for good reason–it really is so good. If you haven’t ever made, you…

Where I live it’s apple season.  We have farmstand deals on giant boxes of apples and you can usually find apples for an extra great price at the store right now as well.  One of our favorite things to make at home is apple sauce.  We have a great recipe for  slowcooker homemade apple sauce,…

Once upon a time, my very best friend in the universe moved to our little town (I didn’t know she was going to wind up being my very best friend yet) and on our first “date,” we went to a local sushi restaurant where we shared an embarrassingly difficult-to-eat sushi dish (followed by a trip…

One of the most common questions I received when I shared my recent experiences on our Alaskan Cruise was what excursions did we do and what did we think of them. We went on a round-trip cruise out of Seattle through Alaska’s famed Inside Passage, and I’m going to show you the excursions we chose at…

First of all, I’m going to be doing a Facebook live TODAY at 2:00 pm CT–I’m going to be sharing an AMAZING cannoli recipe and would LOVE it if you joined me! It’s fall, y’all. Sorry. I couldn’t help it. It actually hasn’t felt like fall here in Louisiana until yesterday–in fact, on Monday afternoon/evening,…

Kate posted some amazing classic pumpkin muffins last week, and I’ve got my favorite Pumpkin Muffin, today.  No surprise that mine include chocolate.  You guys all know about the best Zucchini bread on the planet, right?  This Double-Chocolate Zucchini Bread?  Well this is a pumpkin-spice version of that recipe, so I’m guessing there are lots of…

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??) I’m including instructions on how to make this whole recipe in the slowcooker or oven as well. I’ve wanted one of these forever and we finally added one to our back porch…
