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…

ChocChipCookiePie

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

So….this was lunch. What am I supposed to do? I HAD to get a final shot. It’s not my fault that had to take place at 11:00 this morning. And after it’s all warmed up and there’s ice cream on top….that will melt….it would just be wasteful not to eat it. It’s really just being…

Facebook Friday!

Facebook Friday!

Ok, I’m not making this a thing. Although…..I don’t know…maybe I will? It has a nice ring to it, don’t ya think? I have cupcakes in the oven right now (and both kids at my feet), and it’s the base recipe from these cupcakes, which we’ve already talked about before. But it’s a variation, and…

Strawberry Cream Pie

Strawberry Cream Pie

I wish you could know how good it feels to sit here right now, in the middle of my living room with all the windows open, the laundry is sitting out but I’ll get to it. I’m not in bed, that’s the point. It’s been a rough start to the week here at the Sweeter…

Salad in a Jar

Salad in a Jar

  Everything is better when eaten out of a mason jar. It’s a universal truth folks. I didn’t make it up, it just is. Salad is no exception. I’m on a serious veggie kick (after I eat a healthy portion of jelly beans, of course). It’s not a “drop a pant size” endeavor as much…
