Chocolate and Peanut Butter Sweet Salty Snack Mix

An easy and delicious sweet and salty snack mix to make for your next party or yourself is always a hit. I’m not a sports fan. Like at all. So it should not be a surprise to anyone that I do not care about the Super Bowl. Not even the commercials. Unfortunately for me, my [...]

White Cheddar Pizza Bread

When you think of a pizza bread recipe, my guess is it’s something along the lines of a French bread pizza. This is not that. At all. This is a loaf of yeast-raised bread with pockets of sharp white cheddar, a spicy pizza seasoning, and crunchy edges that taste like the best part of a [...]

homemade wheat bread

Easy Homemade Whole Wheat Sunflower Bread

Homemade whole wheat bread is the perfect way to get started to a healthy new year! Making bread is something that can be intimidating. It’s not quite as simple as making muffins or cookies or something where you just mix and bake. There’s a lot of science involved, and sometimes things out of your control [...]

goji berry granola

Vanilla Coconut Goji Berry Granola

Goji berry granola with vanilla and coconut is perfect for breakfast. I’m a fan of granola. Most store-bought granola, however, is too sweet. Or too expensive. Sometimes it tastes fine but is lacking the ingredients that make it special. If you’ve ever had a bag of chocolate chip granola with like four chocolate chips, you [...]

Smoked Almond Cashew Queso

Smoked cashew queso? Yes, please! It seems like from the moment November hits until the end of the year, I am constantly invited to things. Holiday cocktail parties. Game nights because it’s too cold to do anything outside. And of course, every time there’s a gathering, there are snacks. I’m usually the one to make [...]

Pan Fried Feta Cheese

Crispy pan fried feta cheese makes a unique and easy appetizer that everyone will love. I love cheese. The deli drawer in my fridge probably has six kinds of cheese, maybe more. I like all kinds, and one of my favorite things is cheese and crackers. It’s a standard lunch around here. But while I [...]

cheddar parmesan sourdough

Cheddar Parmesan Sourdough Boule

Cheddar Parmesan sourdough anyone? Homemade bread can be intimidating. It doesn’t have to be of course. There are super easy loaves that you can make with little equipment. Then there is sourdough. Making a sourdough starter is a labor of love, for sure. It requires patience, commitment, and lots and lots of flour.  I have [...]

Double Garlic Bread

I love making garlic bread in the oven. Sometimes, I make a quick and easy version. But sometimes, a meal calls for something a little…extra. Extra garlic, extra prep, and extra deliciousness. This is the bread for that meal. It starts with making some garlic confit. This may sound scary — it’s actually pretty simple. [...]
