Roasted Butternut Squash Soup is classic American fare found on any soup and sandwich shop menu. However, much of the time the rich natural squash flavor can be masked by an overabundance of spices and extra sweetness. This recipe produces a result that is both hearty, comforting, with a great depth of flavor while remaining relatively un-fussy and simple.
Red Velvet Pancakes are perfect for a Valentine’s Day morning. They’re fun for children, and yet can still be romantic for adults. These are adapted buttermilk pancakes that are light and fluffy. If you make too many, just throw them in the freezer and then pop them in a toaster before you eat.
Maple Walnut Granola is fast, easy, delicious, and so good for you. You can take it on hikes, eat it with milk for breakfast or have it as a snack. Plus, unlike the store bought kind, when you make it yourself, you actually know what’s in it.
Cheesecake brownies are a dessert made from the best of two worlds. Decadent cheesecake swirled inside rich fudgey brownie batter and baked to caramelized perfection. These are definitely a crowd pleaser, so be sure to make extra as they will disappear before you know it!
Rice crispy treats are one of the best simple pleasures in life. This recipe is my favorite, no stove top or pots required. They’re easy make, easy to eat, and with only one bowl to clean, I bet even the kids can memorize and make this recipe!
M&M Cookies are so colorful and fun. They’re perfect for birthday parties, giving as gifts, or just making for the heck of it. These particular M&M cookies are soft and chewy. They can stand on their own, but are perfect for dunking in a tall glass of milk or hugging either side of a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. The best part of these cookies is that they can be done in one bowl and mixed by hand.
When many think of Easter, they think of bunnies, baby chicks, candy, and chocolate. I am no different. Every year I make this carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. (And when I say every year, I mean starting from last year). It’s three layers of soft, decadent cake separated by luscious cream cheese frosting. It’s gently spiced, with some lemon in the frosting to cut the sweetness. It’s received rave reviews from everyone I’ve ever served it to. However, little ducks, rabbits, and eggs are definitely not all I think about at Easter…
These garlic lime chicken street tacos are one of my go-to dinner recipes. They’re full of flavor, easy to make, and my baby loves them. Besides the chicken inside them, they have a nice helping of fresh fruit and veggies in the mango salsa.
