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¬†previously (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

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...

Pumpkin Bars

These are incredible. I found this recipe on mykitchencafe¬†(can you tell I’m a huge fan of her site?), and I think she got it from Paula Deen. I was searching for a good seasonal recipe and this was exactly was I was looking for....

Homemade Oreos

image

These were so fun to make. I found the recipe on Tasty Kitchen (my new favorite recipe site). I love the idea of a homemade version of such a classic cookie. And the verdict from everyone that tried them was that they taste even...

Broccoli Cheese Soup

_MG_4764

I decided it was about time I actually cooked something for the blog, rather than the baking I tend to do a lot of. This couldn’t quite be classified as healthy (although I don’t think it’s too terribly bad for you…), but at least...

Fresh Apple Cake

image

This is the perfect fall cake. It tastes wonderful, it’s filled with apples and cinnamon, and it makes your whole house just feel like fall while you’re baking it. This is an Apples of Gold recipe, and it lives up to the high expectations...

Herbes de Provence Bread

image

Another great bread recipe! I’m really beginning to think that you just can’t go wrong with homemade bread. This was another simple one, with a key star ingredient – Herbes de Provence. This seasoning was highly recommended to me by the Apples of Gold...
