The BEST Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love pumpkin spice. Like a lot, a lot. Most people start to complain when pumpkin spice items start showing up in the stores. “It’s too early,” they say. But not I. If I could have pumpkin spice all year long, that would make me very, very happy. But then it might ruin the ahh-mazing-ness of the pumpkin spice. Because …

The Best Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s 9 PM and suddenly I need cookies. So what do I do? Pull up Pinterest and search for some delicious cookies. And I figure, if they’re oatmeal cookies, they’re healthy right? But here’s the thing… I haven’t been to the grocery store in a while, so my ingredients are limited and I want cookies NOW. I can’t possibly wait …

Peanut Butter Blossoms (with Mini Kisses)

Peanut Butter Blossoms (with Mini Kisses)

Peanut Butter Blossoms have always been (one) of my favorite cookies. So after I made these Red Velvet Peanut Butter Blossoms, I felt compelled to make a batch of the original just, you know, to compare the two recipes. One of my most vivid memories as a child is heading to my great aunt’s house for Christmas. It was always held …

Easy Apple Turnovers

If you read my recent recipe for Apple Walnut Spice Muffins, you will know that I have a bunch of Granny Smith apples to get through before they go bad.

My husband and I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day. We have too many other anniversaries to celebrate. We will usually spend the day together, maybe throw a quick “Happy V-day around.” But nothing out of the ordinary. However, I wanted to make a special Valentine’s Day treat because… well, I’m pregnant and I need cookies. So really they were for …

Easy Cheesy Spanish Rice

Easy Cheesy Spanish Rice

I have thing for rice. Or noodles. Whichever. I love them. Or bread. Or potatoes. Maybe I actually just  have thing for carbs? My husband thinks I am such a weirdo, but I could literally sit down and eat a whole bowl of rice/noodles and butter. Super unhealthy, but super delicious! So anytime I can add rice to a meal, …

Nutella Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Happy World Nutella Day! For today’s recipe, I decided to take my favorite peanut butter banana bread recipe (since my freezer is overflowing with bananas) and add a little punch of Nutella for World Nutella Day! I will start by saying that one of the reasons I love this banana bread recipe is because it is mostly healthy and packed …

Wacky Cake

Wacky Cake

Today’s recipe comes from my mom’s recipe book. This recipe has been in my family forever. I really hope it’s not a “secret family recipe” because I’m about to tell all of you! This is sort of like a mix between a brownie and a cake. It’s not too sweet, there’s no frosting, but it is so light and moist. …
