Apple Cranberry Pie

Thanksgiving is a couple of weeks away. How this even happened, I have no idea. It felt like 2019 just started a couple of months ago, and here we are, another year has come and gone. Though I hate how fast time seems to have been going lately, I am more than thrilled about all […]

Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread

Cornbread is one of those types of breads that I associate with the colder months that are filled with soups and chili and all things hearty. There are a million different cornbread recipes and some people like it sweet, while others prefer their cornbread savory. This recipe is definitely a savory version, but I have […]

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 […]

Croissants and French toast? Seems like a no-brainer to me. It turned out better than expected and I may not […]

Living in Washington, I think one of the thing I miss the most about being in Texas is Mexican food. I have yet to find a R E A L L Y good Mexican food place here, but there have been some decent places. …but, none of the Mexican restaurants serve sopapillas. I MISS SOPAPILLAS […]

Chicken Spaghetti

As we have established many, many times, I am a sucker for all things pasta and all things in the form of a casserole. And guess what, chicken spaghetti fulfills both of those things. Creamy, cheesy, and homey, chicken spaghetti is comfort on a plate. I love to make this dish in advance, pop it […]

Slower Cooker Beef and Broccoli

It’s fall, which means it’s officially Crockpot season. I’ll be honest, I do not use the slower cooker too often though I probably should more since it is so easy! I always find myself not prepping adequately by not starting the dang thing in enough time. But when I do plan accordingly, this is one […]
