Asian Chicken Salad

Asian Chicken Salad

I promised you a salad. I know, you’ve been waiting on pins and needles. Salad is all you can think about. I’m making your mouth water right now, aren’t I? No? Not so much? You’d rather have chocolate? I get it, friend. Oh, I get it. Yesterday I ate chocolate and drank coffee as a…

Shredded Chicken

Fast & Easy Shredded Chicken

The last two weeks have been nuts, planning isn’t really my strong suit at the moment. I’m working on it. We are kind of flying by the seat of our pants for dinners, etc. The kids are eating cheese, strawberries, and pretzels every day for lunch. It’s working (mostly). So I found a handful of…

Vanilla Strawberry Peach Jam

Oven Roasted Vanilla Bean Strawberry Peach Jam {And a bonus recipe!}

Oh my goodness. What a day. 30 jars of jam in the fridge. Both my monkeys were high on something today so in between filling jars with piping hot jam I spent my day breaking up fights and putting them in time out. All. Day. Long. Somewhere in the jam making craziness, I got curious…

Iced Coffee

Homemade Iced Coffee {Cold Brew Method}

A couple things you should know about this post: The photography is really bad. I’m sorry, I really am. I photographed this in a hurry, the lighting is off, my eye is off. It’s all bad. But you didn’t come here to admire photography so I think we can agree that it’s ok for now….

Bacon Sweet Potato Hash

Bacon Sweet Potato Hash

If we’re being really honest here today, I logged onto my computer to post how I’ve been making cold brew and iced coffee (two different things folks). Then I found these pictures and realized I could help you with dinner (and my final coffee shots are lame so this gives me time to re-take them)….

Sopapillas

Homemade Sopapillas

I’m about to ruin any vow you might have made to stop eating fried foods. Not only to stop eating them, but now I’m going to show you how to make them yourselves. Without a fry daddy or any other sort of contraption, just your stove top and a pot, some oil, and delicious doughy…

French Bread Rolls

French Bread Rolls

I tried to ruin these rolls. They still turned out. Imagine that. That makes them officially worthy of posting. At first I thought I used too much flour and then I worried that I didn’t use enough. Then I accidentally deflated them right before baking. Oops. And yet here they are, I imagine they would…

French Dip Sandwiches

Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches

Uh…..I’m supposed to be writing something else right now. A piece about serving one another. Something I’m super passionate about. If you live within 20 miles of me, there’s a good chance I’ve made you something to eat at some point in time. Either because you had a baby, had surgery, had a crappy Tuesday,…

Cinnamon Ice Cream

Cinnamon Ice Cream

Where to start this week? I think I left out the little fact that three of the four SweeterThings had hand, foot, mouth last week. Including yours truly. So that happened. Ike is in a big boy bed. Because we are stupid. And he’s giant. And he can climb things, any thing really. All things….

MacnCheese

Boxed Mac n’ Cheese: The Right Way

You think I’m joking, don’t you? What self respecting food blogger writes and documents step by step instructions for boxed macaroni and cheese? This one folks. This one. You may not even realize you’re making it wrong, and I never joke about macaroni and cheese. I am a die hard, very committed consumer of macaroni…

Green Beans

Fresh Greeen Beans in the Skillet {Super Fast, Super Easy!}

Please don’t hate me because I made you a vegetable. It’s a really delicious vegetable, I promise. I know, I’m clearly having an identity crisis. I usually bring you food that’s covered in whipped cream or drizzled in chocolate. It’s usually terrible for your waistline but oh so good for your soul. Every now and…
