Skinny Mocha Frappuccino #Choctoberfest

My boyfriend and I are trying to give up Starbucks. I used to be the girl who would laugh at the people who stood in line every morning for their morning crack. Then, suddenly, I became one of them. I started spending more and more time in cafes, just to get out of the house […]

White Chocolate Doughnut Poppers #Choctoberfest

When Allison and I started planning #Choctoberfest with Imperial Sugar, I automatically was put in charge of coming up with some white chocolate recipes since I LOVE it and my sister is not a fan. Loving white chocolate is something I share with our dad. Growing up, my mom would have to search for white chocolate […]

Crab and Bacon Eggs Benedict

Eggs benedict is one of my favorite meals of all time. I know this is traditionally a brunch dish, but could eat it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I remember the first time I had eggs benedict. I was being set up on a blind date, and he invited me to brunch one Sunday morning […]

Sweet Vanilla Cupcakes #secretrecipeclub

This month, our recipe for Secret Recipe Club comes from Maxine from Why Am I Not Skinny, which is a fantastic blog name. I like to bake and she has a lot of dessert recipes. It was hard to decide what to make. I finally chose her Cupcakes from Heaven, but her Upside Down Peach […]

Rustic Blueberry Hand Pies with Lemon Glaze

I love using the term “rustic” when it comes to food. The chicken falls of the bone before I can slice it neatly? It’s okay. It’s rustic. The brownies get a little too crumbly? It’s okay. They’re rustic. The blueberry tarts explode in the oven? You got it – rustic! Not all of our food […]

Cream Cheese Peach Danish

Puff pastry is a great product. It is so quick and easy to use. Just thaw and it is ready to use in your recipe. Two sheets come in a standard package. I had a sheet in the freezer that needs to be used. I searched Pinterest and found a yummy-looking danish recipe on Lovely […]

Blueberry Honey Smoothie

I’m definitely on a blueberry kick. Last month, we posted a Berry Beer Cooler recipe for Secret Recipe Club, and today I’ve got a yummy blueberry smoothie recipe. I love pairing blueberries with honey for smoothies, not only because the flavors really shine through, but also because it’s a much healthier option. I love the […]

Quick Cinnamon Swirl Bread

I enjoy making quick breads. They aren’t as time consuming as a yeast bread and you have something wonderful when you are done. I was in a baking mood the other day and was searching for a new quick bread recipe. I came across a version of the cinnamon swirl bread on Something Swanky. Reading […]

Berry Beer Coolers

It’s Secret Recipe Club reveal day! Every month, our little group swaps blogs “Secret Santa” style and we all try out recipes from our assigned blogs. This month, we got Wildflour’s Cottage Kitchen, and oh man it was hard to choose which of Kelly’s recipes to try. But then we decided to have an impromptu […]

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Banana muffins usually aren’t my thing. In fact, I really prefer banana flavor in three forms: Actual bananas Smoothies (like this one) Those little banana runt candies Seriously, who doesn’t like banana runts? Last year, I made some double chocolate banana scones that were pretty darn good, but most of the time, I leave the […]

Orange Mango Banana Spinach Smoothies

I’ve been resisting the green smoothie trend for a long time. But no more! This month, for Secret Recipe Club, I was given Fit Mama Real Food, and reveal day happens to be today, on the last day of #HotSummerEats. What is summer without a refreshing smoothie? Heather’s refreshing Green Orange Mango Banana Smoothie recipe […]

BBQ Chicken Quesadillas #HotSummerEats

What is the flavor of summer? Is it watermelon? Maybe corn on the cob? How about s’mores? Yes, yes, and yes…but for me, the top flavor of summer has got to be barbeque! I love making my own BBQ sauce (awesome on meatballs), and taste-testing packaged sauces in a variety of flavors. As part of […]

How to Make Homemade Flour Tortillas

Flour tortillas are SO easy to make at home. I can’t believe I didn’t try it out sooner! We are Airbnb hosts, and one of our guests mentioned that she is not great in the kitchen, but does make her own flour tortillas for wraps, quesadillas, tacos, etc. I thought to myself, “Why have I […]

Orange Chocolate Chip Scones with Vanilla-Orange Glaze

So here’s the thing… I already have a favorite scone recipe. I’ve been open to other types of scones, and have even made these double chocolate banana scones in the past. They were delicious. But nothing can hold a candle to the scone recipe I got from my friend’s grandmother. These come close. I’ll be […]

Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Pretzel Buns #BreadBakers

You guys… I think this is seriously one of my favorite recipes of all time! The May theme for Bread Bakes is “Stuffed,” and when it was announced, I scoured Pinterest for ideas. Then, I remembered, I already had an awesome stuffed bread recipe pinned – Cheddar Bacon Stuffed Pretzel Buns from Yammies Noshery. It’s […]

4-Ingredient Homemade Dog Treats

Last week while browsing through Pinterest I came across a pin for homemade dog treats. Normally, I’d skip over a recipe like this since I don’t have a dog (I’m generally not a pet person). But one of my closest friends just added a new German Shepherd puppy to the family, in addition to the two […]
