Witch Finger Cookies

October may almost be over, but the fun is just beginning. All Hallows’ Eve is upon us! Not only one of the most fun but also the spookiest day of the year.. BOO. Costumes, games and fun run amuck, but what fun is Halloween without some ghoulish treats? So get ready my pretties, because today…

Cheddar, Turkey Bacon & Scallion Mini Quiches

Let’s talk about quiche! Super easy to make, endless ingredient combinations, and the perfect food for any occasion. What could be better than a full sized quiche?  Well mini quiches of course! Loaded with flavor and wrapped up in bite sized goodness, watch as they all disappear.  These mini quiches are not only easier and…

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies come in all flavors, shapes, and sizes. No matter what your preference, there’s a cookie out there just for you. I myself am a big fan of the classics. Snickerdoodle, peanut butter, sugar, and gingerbread are all on my cookie list. But there’s one classic that always beats out the rest. Nothing compares to…

Garlic Mashed Sweet Potatoes

If you’ve read my hasselback sweet potato recipe then you know just how cuckoo bananas I am over potatoes.  They are (in my opinion) the perfect carb. Super versatile and delicious to eat. They also happen to pair perfectly with a big juicy steak.  (Drools) So boil some water and grab both your peeler and…

Apple Pie

I’ve always had this obsession with learning how to bake pies. I remember watching the scene in Disney’s Snow White, where she is making a pie and all the animals are watching and helping her. They say we are all super impressionable when young. I may have only been about 4 years old, but Snow…

Baked Apple Cider Donuts

So you went apple picking and couldn’t resist turning those apples into a huge jug of homemade apple cider. You don’t want it to go to waste, but you also don’t want to chug cider for the next 2 weeks. Well that is an easy fix my friends, you simply use the cider to make…

Apple Cider

Autumn brings pumpkin spice everything and anything, but it’s not the only star of the season. Granny Smiths, Fuji, Crimson Crisps, and Macintosh. If you haven’t already guessed, I’m talking about apples!  They can be used in pies or fritter, baked or fried and they make the yummiest juice. But my favorite thing about them…

Pumpkin Spice Rolls

I’ve LOVED cinnamon rolls ever since I was a little girl. I would order a Cinnabon cinnamon roll every single time we went to the mall and I’d always ask for extra frosting, even though my mom would say no. (Yes, I have a sugar addiction lol) The older I got and the longer I…

Pumpkin Loaf

It’s pumpkin season my friends! Im talking  pumpkin butter, pumpkin spice, pumpkin cookies and so much more pumpkin deliciousness. It is a very exciting time for us pumpkin lovers and if you are anything like me you absolutely LOVE pumpkin everything!  So get ready ladies and gents, because today we are baking the most super moist pumpkiny…

Baked Whole Wheat Tortilla Chips with Guacamole

You are rummaging through your fridge or pantry for a snack, when you come across the left over tortillas from your last taco night.  I don’t know if it’s just me, but I can never use a full package, even on taco or fajita night. Luckily, they can easily be baked into crunchy salty tortilla…
