The Best BBQ Meatball Recipe of All Time

These BBQ Meatballs are our favorite meatball recipe of all time. I usually make three or four batches at once and vacuum pack them for the freezer. It’s nice to be able to get some out whenever you need an easy meal. My husband really enjoys this meal, so we made them fairly often. Allison’s […]

Red Velvet Cookies

*Papa Boyer is in the hospital right now getting heart surgery. We’re all praying for a speedy recovery (and planning some healthy recipes for his return). Thoughts and prayers are definitely appreciated.* Any red velvet cookie always deserves a second look from me. Our whole family likes red velvet goodies. This Red Velvet Cookie recipe […]

Perfect Pumpkin Bread

With the fall season here, I like to make pumpkin bread. I usually get a neck pumpkin and cut it up and cook it until soft. Then I run it through the food mill and have fresh pumpkin puree. The puree can be used for baking or put in the freezer for later use. If […]

Cold Spinach Artichoke Dip

Now that we’re knee-deep in football season (and baseball season for that matter), I wanted to share another great dip recipe to serve at your next tailgate or game day party. Even if it’s just you vegging in front of the couch watching the game by yourself, this Spinach Artichoke Dip makes it a party! […]

Restaurant-Style Queso

I love a good copycat recipe. Whenever I go out to eat at a Mexican restaurant, I love ordering the queso. Does anyone out there not love a big bowl of gooey melted cheese? Okay, well our grandmother doesn’t love a big bowl of gooey melted cheese. She doesn’t like cheese at all. She’s weird. […]

Cold Crab Dip – Perfect for Parties

Sometimes, you need a quick recipe that holds up well as you travel to a party. When I find myself in that situation, my answer is often to bring a dip. Dips get better as the ingredients meld together, and they’re definitely crowd-pleasers. Oh, and did I mention how gosh darn easy they are? Love […]

Jack Daniels Sugared Pecans

My love affair with pecans is recent. Growing up, I hated nuts. Other than cashews, I never ate them, and I absolutely hated them in my baked goods. I still do, actually. Nuts do not belong in brownies. But I’ve grown up a bit and can admit that sugared pecans are downright delicious. My mother […]

Quick and Easy Mini Cinnamon Rolls

These mini cinnamon rolls are quick and easy to make for breakfast, for a snack or a quick dessert. You should get 2 tubes of crescent rolls right away. I would make a double batch right away because they will not last. This recipe is a version I pinned from Michael Wurm, Jr. who pinned […]

Cinnamon Cake Mix Waffles with Warm Cinnamon Roll Icing

I think waffles got me through the the start of my freshman year of college. No joke. The dining hall had a self-serve waffle station that was open regardless of whether it was actually breakfast time or not. During that awkward first week of not knowing anyone, a group of girls and I who shared several classes […]

Raspberry Coffeecake Muffins

These muffins are the best muffins ever. I’ve tried a lot of recipes for muffins and you can throw most of them away. This recipe makes muffins that are moist and flavorful, and you can customize them for your family. I pinned a version of this recipe from Lori Manning. This was originally a Barefoot […]

Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

I think this is my new favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. They are chewy and delicious. And they freeze well, too. I pinned this recipe from Jackie Gaccione who pinned it from PinCookie.com. Just make sure you check the pantry for the chocolate chips, because at my house some people get these chocolate cravings and […]

Sausage Wonton Appetizers

These sausage appetizers are a great snack to make for any kind of party or occasion. You can easily find all the ingredients in the grocery store or change up the ingredients with whatever is in your refrigerator or pantry. I pinned a version of this recipe from Stephanie Slaughter, who pinned from The Taste […]

Super Simple Garlic Knots

I may be super picky (Allison’s note: that is a TOTAL understatement), but man do I love good garlic knots. Usually any good bread related recipe involves a lot of time waiting while the dough rises. But let’s be honest. While I’m perfectly fine baking a labor-intensive recipe, 9 times out of 10 I’m way […]

So-Easy-You-Want-to-Kiss-Someone Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins

I have a confession to make. The title of this post is a half-lie. These “muffins” are actually more like cupcakes without the frosting. But I’m going to call them muffins because 1) it makes them healthier and 2) it means I can eat them for breakfast. Also, the original pinner called them muffins so […]
