‘Tis the season for baking! I absolutely, positively love the warm spices, the candy, the cakes, the cranberries, you name it, that Christmas brings. I’ll eat ’em all!

Buttermilk Blueberry Muffins

Y’all, I have a confession to make: I still have a freezer full of fruit that I picked over the summer. TONS of fruit. Blueberries. Blackberries. Apples. Fruit overload. In an attempt to try to lessen the amount of crap I have in my refrigerator, I thought I better use up some of the fruit […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
