15 Easy Brunch Recipes

In a perfect world (well, in my perfect world), brunch would be its own food group. It’s pretty much what I look forward to most on the weekends, whether I’m making it myself, or indulging in someone else’s endeavors. Ahh, it’s a dream. I mean, what could be better than...

Slow Cooker Chili + Crock-Pot GIVEAWAY!

I’m now calling this “victory chili”, because when I made it a few days ago for the Royals’ big wild card game, they freaking won and earned their way to the play-offs for the first time in 29 years!!! Oh my goodness.  People reading this post years from now will probably have...

Coconut Oil Pumpkin Bread

I finally made you a pumpkin recipe. I don’t know if any of you noticed, but I have admittedly been holding out on the pumpkin baking this year until now.  I think it stems back to the day I started seeing pumpkin recipes popping up on the blogosphere in early...
