I really can’t remember the last time I had a rice krispie treat. They are such a childhood favorite, but now I just never think about making them, and I don’t really come across them very often in bakeries and coffee shops. I was flipping through the Flour cookbook the other night and saw a recipe for brown butter rice krispies treats. Um, yum! I knew I had to try them! Continue reading
I’m back with another pumpkin recipe. I just can’t stay away! For some reason this time of year all I want to eat is pumpkin! Like these pumpkin doughnuts, or these pumpkin doughnuts, or these pumpkin muffins. I can’t believe I am about to say this, but I like it even more than chocolate right now. Pretty sure that will change in a month or so, but for now I’m embracing pumpkin everything! Continue reading
All the flavors of your favorite Thanksgiving stuffing baked into a loaf of bread!
Yes, you read that title correctly – Stuffing Bread! A loaf of bread that tastes just like your favorite Thanksgiving stuffing. Wow. When I saw this recipe on King Arthur Flour, I knew I HAD to make it for TheBetterHalf. He is a stuffing fanatic. Whenever we talk about Thanksgiving, all he can focus on is stuffing. But I have never actually made stuffing for him. See he likes his grandmothers special stuffing recipe, and I really can’t compete with that. But a loaf of bread that tastes like stuffing? That I can do! And it definitely gets his seal of approval. He declared this his favorite bread that I have ever made. Gold star for me! Continue reading
I am a huge fan of butternut squash. I get so excited when I see it popping up all over markets and on restaurant menus in the fall. I like to buy the packages of precut cubes. It just seems much safer to me…every time I take the giant chef’s knife to a whole butternut squash I come perilously close to losing a finger.
Usually we just roast our butternut squash – toss it in some olive oil, salt and pepper and roast for 20 mins at 400 degrees. Simple and delicious. But I decided to branch out with my latest butternut squash purchase and make potstickers. Wow. Amazing. New favorite recipe! This was my first time making potstickers and I have to say, I was pretty darn proud of myself. Look at these beauties! I was pretty much dancing around the apartment when they were finished.

All the flavors of a gooey cinnamon bun with cream cheese icing baked into a doughnut! The perfect way to celebrate Doughnut Appreciation Day.
According to this handy little website, it is Doughnut Appreciation Day! I know there is a National Doughnut Day in June, but I fully support having two days a year when we can celebrate the mighty doughnut. If you follow my blog regularly, you probably think that I celebrate doughnuts on a weekly basis. I have been obsessed with making them ever since I bought this amazing doughnut pan! Continue reading
Soup season is officially here again! I love to eat soup all year round, but I definitely take a break from making it in the warmer months. Who wants to stand over a hot stove for an hour when it is 80 degrees outside? But now that fall is here and the temperatures are dropping, it is time to get back on the soup making bandwagon! Continue reading

Today I have a very special post for you – I am guest posting for a great blogging group called Mystery Dish. Each month a group of mystery ingredients is selected, and then each blogger in the group creates a recipe using a certain number of the ingredients! Sarah at The Pajama Chef introduced me to this group, and I am so excited to be their guest this month. When she emailed me the ingredients, I kind of felt like I was on Chopped. The possibilities of what to make were endless!! Sweet, savory, breakfast, dessert…in the end, I went for sweet! No surprise there, I just can’t stop baking. Continue reading
Happy Friday! To celebrate the weekend, how about some pancakes? But not just any ordinary pancakes (although there’s nothing wrong with plain ol’ buttermilk pancakes or whole wheat pancakes) – sweet potato pecan pancakes! I was thinking about making pumpkin pancakes, but I have been on pumpkin overload lately. So I figured why not try out the “other orange puree” – mashed sweet potato! Is that a thing people say, the other orange puree? Probably not, but they really should. Continue reading
Breakfast or dessert? A moist chocolate cake covered with rich chocolate icing and topped with chopped pistachios – the description might sound like dessert, but the shape says breakfast so I’m going with that! Continue reading
