Barbecue Meatballs

image

If you are looking for the perfect meal for a cold winter night, this could be it. The Pioneer Woman calls it “comfort food to the max”, and I definitely agree. I just bought The Pioneer Woman Cooks – the new cookbook from Ree...

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

image

Another pumpkin recipe…have I overwhelmed anyone yet? I can’t help it – I love baking with pumpkin, and this recipe is no exception. Chocolate chip pumpkin bread…doesn’t it just sound good? I got this recipe from my friend Katie, who makes it every fall....

Carrot Fries

image

Yes, you read that right. Fries made out of carrots. Is anybody still reading? I hope so, because these are my new dinner addiction. They taste just like sweet potato fries – hot and semi-crispy and salty. And they’re carrots, so that means they’re...

Alice’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

image

I’m on a search for the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe. I found this recipe on a blog post titled “The Best EVER chocolate chip cookie recipe.” Sounds promising, right? Unfortunately, it’s not exactly what I’m looking for. However, this really is a great...

Homemade Tortillas

image

The idea of homemade tortillas may seem like a lot of work, but trust me, it’s worth it. Last night we ate chicken fajitas on warm chewy tortillas straight off the griddle. It’s a completely different fajita experience. Tortillas are incredibly simple to make....

Baked Pasta with Chicken Sausage

image

Another winning recipe from mykitchencafe. This is everything you could want in a baked pasta dish. It’s warm, cheesy, full of wonderful tomato flavor, and just the slightest bit creamy. We loved it. Mike originally rated it a 4, but as I heated up...

Pumpkin Spice Scones

image

Make these. Seriously. They are incredible. I thought I had found my favorite scone recipe┬ápreviously (and those are really good), but these are better. They are moist and sweet and full of wonderful pumpkin flavor. And the icing? Don’t leave it off, because it...

French Bread

image

Saturdays are my bread baking days. Whenever I’m cleaning, or doing laundry, or another chore I don’t enjoy, it’s nice to simultaneously have the wonderful yeasty smell of rising and baking bread in the kitchen. It cheers me up. I also love to try...

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

image

This is one of my favorite fall recipes (also known as pumpkin gobs). Last year when I discovered the recipe, I think I made them three times in a one week time period! (Don’t worry, I gave most of them away). Everyone that has...

Hamburger Soup

image

Hamburger Soup is not the best name for this. It tastes great, but when I mentioned it to Mike as a possible future dinner, his response was “Hamburger Soup?? Those two words go together about as well as tomato and pie.” Right. After that...
