A Few Favorites

Heyyyyyyy.It’s the weekend!!!And this weekend is oh so special because it has an extra hour in it. I’m not sure why that extra hour always seems like such a treat to me… I’m going to wake up way too early anyway. Especially when the sun is suddenly in my face at 6 a.m. But it …

Pumpkin Donut Mini Muffins

I have barely begun to scratch the surface of the complete awesomeness this season has to offer.You are probably about to be inundated with fall things here over the next few weeks, so if you aren’t into it, look away (but please don’t, though, okay? because I would miss you. and you would miss out …

Pumpkin Bread Pudding

I’ve been really super busy so I’ve gone pretty easy on you guys with the attack of all fall things.You probably did not know before just right this second that I am kind of a Halloween junkie.

Cream Cheese Banana Bread

I shared this Cream Cheese Banana Bread Recipe originally in 2012. It still gets traction, especially when the weather is perfect for baking or when you are just having a DAY. Other awesome banana bread recipes include Elvis Banana Bread and Healthy Pumpkin Banana Bread. Cranberry Pecan Banana Bread is also a winner!Original rambling post text …

Strawberry Muffins

I do realize that it isn’t strawberry season anymore. So let me explain.Evan LOVES strawberries. And when I spied them on sale at the end of the season I got just a little overzealous with my purchase. He happily raided the strawberry container in the refrigerator for about 4 days, and then some of the …

Cheez-Its, From Scratch

This weekend is for snacking. And loafing. Because the weather is garbage. It’s all rainy, but not cozy up with a book kind of rainy (I just looked evuuureeewhere for that clip from The Office where Phyllis rattles off all the rainy day cliches but NBC is holding it hostage). Today was an ugly, cloudy, it-looks-like-rain-but-it’s-really-only-going-to-storm-for-about-5-minutes, 9000% …

Maple Oatmeal Breakfast Bread

Breakfast is easily my favorite meal of the day. Unless dessert is a meal.I love breakfast for lots of reasons. Some of them include waffles with whipped cream. Or “Ah-lah-modey”. Other reasons have to do with coffee, eggs, breakfast potatoes. Don’t even get me started on biscuits or cinnamon rolls.But I have to say that …

On Bread… and P-90X

Do you like to eat bread?I do.I am a bread eater. I can distinctly remember craving the biscuits more than the bacon when breakfast was served while visiting my grandparents as a kid. I would opt for an extra dinner roll, the plain old brown ‘n’ serve kind, instead of more of my momma’s creamy …

Basil Butter

So I mentioned it a little bit last week, but I thought I’d take just a minute to talk about how much I really like to smash things into butter. Blueberries, strawberries, GARLIC!, and this week basil. I have the fondest little girl memories of my dad and I sharing a big basket of hot popovers …

Biscuits for Dummies

Biscuits are complicated.There are entire restaurant chains devoted to fried chicken and making biscuits- Bojangles, Popeye’s, and Church’s Chicken, to name a few. I’m not usually a fried chicken and biscuits girl. I’d rather save my junky food calories for ice creamy milkshakes and cookies bursting at the seams with chocolate chips.But there are some days that a fried …
