Soft Gingerbread Cookies {Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap}

It’s funny– growing up I didn’t like gingerbread cookies all that much, but when I saw these soft gingerbread cookies from Cookies and Cups, I knew my thoughts on gingerbread were going to change. And they did! I doubled the recipe to start and wish I would have tripled it. No, I didn’t bake four dozen cookies for just me–… Continue reading

One-Pot Shrimp and Elbow Pasta

Life has calmed down enough that I have been home before 8 pm every night this week- crazy right?!? Last night, I was home at 5:30. I feel like I have so much extra time on my hands. Well, at least enough time to make dinner. I’ve cleaned the pantry, and next up, I’ll be cleaning up the fridge. It’s… Continue reading

Decadent Cinnamon Peanut Butter Bars

I am finally back home after a solid two weeks on the road for work. I spent a week in Texas and then a couple days in both Colorado and Utah. I loved exploring parts of the country where I haven’t spent too much time. I ate my way throughout these states, but I feel like I rolled my way… Continue reading

Chicken Cordon Bleu Pinwheels

Today I am in Colorado– or am I in Utah? I don’t even know! All I know is that I’m craving a home-cooked meal. Last time I was home, Austin took such good care of me and made delicious dinners. Chicken Cordon Bleu Pinwheels was one of those– the perfect combo of meet and cheese. And it’s in a crescent… Continue reading

Cinnamon Bun Cookie Bars {Secret Recipe Club}

This month’s Secret Recipe Club reveal really snuck up on me! I knew it was the first Monday of each month, but when the first Monday of the month is also Labor Day, and I don’t have to go into work, it throws me for a loop. Yesterday, I was watching some Sunday morning tv with my husband and jumped up… Continue reading

BBQ Beef Brisket {Slow Cooker}

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for the Beef Checkoff. I received products to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating. All opinions are 100% my own! Last Sunday was draft day, and it was a big day in our household. Draft day might be my hubby’s favorite day of… Continue reading

Taco Stromboli

  I came home tonight with every intention of making mexican pizza. But when I started layering all the goodies on top of the piiza dough, I knew it would be a pizza disaster if I cooked it as a pizza– pick up one slice, and we’re toast. By toast, I mean mexican pizza toppings EVERYWHERE. What was I to… Continue reading

Carrot Muffins {The Leftovers Club}

I went to the post office yesterday to drop off my package for the Leftovers Club— sending carrot muffins to Marissa at In My Yellow Cardigan. The postal worker asked if my package was perishable. Why yes it is, I said. He asked what it was. When I saw carrot muffins, his face lit up. And then he asked if… Continue reading

Chicken & Broccoli Pot Pie {SRC Reveal}

The Secret Recipe Club reveal date always sneaks up on me, despite having pinned a ton of recipes from my match right at the beginning of the month! This month I was paired with the Saturday Evening Pot. Their motto is Faith, Family, and Food: Flavors of a Fabulous Life. I can’t imagine a better saying for this great family… Continue reading
