Rosemary Garlic Bread

As we have established several, several times, I love to bake. I usually stick to sweets, but over the last year, I have been trying my hand at making more pastries that are more on the savory side. Since having an over-abundance of herbs, including rosemary, I decided to make some yummy bread with it. […]

Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joes are a meal I associate with my childhood. My mom would crack open a can of Manwich, sauté some onions and bell pepper with ground beef, and boom, easy weeknight meal. But as I have entered my own culinary experience with my own kiddos, I find myself gravitating away from the canned stuff […]

Fried Chicken Sandwich

If I love anything, I love a good fried chicken sammie. This recipe is a copycat version of the Chick-Fil-A version we all know and love. But as good as their sandwiches are, I equally love getting to go with one of my friends, bribe our kids to eat, and then they go play. We […]

Hamburger Soup

This time of year is kind of blah in the PNW. The time has changed and feels like it is midnight at 4:30 pm. It is gloomy and rainy all day long. And, it is cold. Because of this kind of weather, my heart (and tummy) craaaave soup. Gimme all of the soups! I love […]

Tres Leches Cake

Tres leches cake, which translates to “three milks” cake, is one of my favorite cakes to make. It is also one of my favorite cakes to eat. While meal prepping before Aric returned from his deployment, I just K N E W I had to make this naughty thing. If you were to ask him, […]
