Brownie Spiders

Halloween is just around the corner!  And while I’m not big into the “gore” side of the holiday, I am all for some cute little spooky treats!  And when I happened to see this adorable little spider cake pedestal at Target last week, I of course had to find a...

Pumpkin Streusel Muffins {Gimme Some Oven}

Pumpkin Streusel Muffins

Today when I woke up, it finally felt like autumn. There has been a crisp breeze moving in over the past few days, but I have still been clinging to my iced coffees, sandals and open car windows in hopes of savoring just a few more days of summer....

Fleur de Sel Caramels

Fleur de Sel Caramels

Ever since I saw Ina Garten make homemade fleur de sel caramels awhile back, I’ve been itching to give them a try myself.  I have to admit that candy thermometers still make me nervous (always get so anxious waiting for candies to reach the right temperature!!), but these looked...

Spiced Cocoa Roasted Almonds

Spiced Cocoa Roasted Almonds

Brief disclaimer: These nuts are 100% irresistible. Oh my word.  I made them for the first time with my parents on Thanksgiving, thinking they might be a nice snack to keep out for the holiday weekend.  But….I’m pretty sure they disappeared by the end of the day.  Even with...

Pumpkin Pie Biscotti

Pumpkin Pie Biscotti

My cabinets may or may not have an unusually plentiful supply of pumpkin this year… Ha – I can’t seem to help myself!  Ever since last year’s pumpkin shortage, an extra can always seems to make its way into my grocery bag whenever I pass by it in the...

Vanilla Chai Cupcakes

I absolutely love chai.  Ever since college, it is still hands-down my favorite drink to order at coffee shops. (And even lately – I’ve been experimenting with recipes making it at home!)  Whether it’s cool and iced in the summer, or warm and cozy in the winter, a good...

Football Bites (With Summer Sausage, Cheddar and Ranch)

Ok, I confess — I really like to play with my food.  :-) So when surveying the ingredients I had out to make some apps for a Chiefs game this month, suddenly the thought of just slicing the cheddar and sausage seemed a little too boring.  So with the...

Apple Nachos

How fun are these????? I happen to be a HUGE fan of caramel apples.  But as my friends and I discussed at a local Apple Festival this year — caramel apples seem so much more enjoyable (and easier to bite into!) when the apples are sliced instead of whole. ...

Autumn Chicken Stew

Autumn Chicken Stew

We finally turned on our heater today.  After a gorgeous, mild fall — chilly weather has now arrived. So to warm up today, decided to make a soup with all of these apples we still have around.  I was in the mood for something easy and comforting, so ended...

Apple Bacon Spinach Salad

Apple Bacon Spinach Salad

  Many of the recipes I post on here are creative and new to me.  And many of them are tried and true favorites I’ve made for years.  This one happens to be in the latter.  :) Indeed.  A simple apple and spinach salad.  With bacon (yes, please)  And...

Apple Cheddar Bread

Apple Cheddar Bread

  I love sweet breads.  And I love savory breads.  But I especially love sweet and savory breads! So of course I wanted to give this new recipe a try.  I ran across it online last week, and realized I actually had all of the ingredients on hand to give...
