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. […]

Tomato Soup

It is STILL winter. I feel like this cold weather up in the PNW has lasted a little too long. I am naturally a cold-natured person and I just overall need anything I can get to warm me up on a cold day. These cold and dreary days call for a big ole cup of […]

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 […]

Lasagna

Let me start out by saying: this is THE best.lasagna.ever. So rich, so hearty, and so dang good. I had never made homemade lasagna prior to marrying Aric (it is one of his absolute favorites). It always seemed so hard and I am NOT a fan of ricotta cheese. But, being the good wife I […]

Croissant French Toast

My husband’s all-time favorite breakfast food is French toast. Sometimes, I find that French toast can get boring and kind of, well, soggy. So, I decided to try and mash up two French items together. Croissants and French toast? Seems like a no-brainer to me. It turned out better than expected and I may not […]

Chocolate Chess Pie

Y’all, I have a confession to make: I love pie. I could eat pie every single day for breakfast. However, I feel like I don’t get to eat pie as much as I would like to, as it is typically a “holiday dessert.” While this delectably fudgy pie is one of my staples to break […]
