Hamburger Stew

Hamburger Stew

When I was a kid, I always knew that cold weather was around the corner when my mom made this soup. It wasn’t an immediate favorite as a kid, weird, I know, but then we started dipping in tortilla chips instead of saltine crackers and […]

Brown Sugar Whole Wheat Muffins

Brown Sugar Whole Wheat Muffins

These Brown Sugar Whole Wheat Muffins are one of my most favorite recipes. They are so easy and so fast to whip up as breakfast, a snack, or a complement to soup or salad. They are soft, moist, and fluffy, and they don’t dry out […]

Meaty Queso Party Dip

Meaty Queso Party Dip

For those of you who keep up with my blog regularly, if there are any of you out there, you may have noticed me posting recipes quite frequently that you have already seen on Eat It & Say Yum. I've been working to get all my content transferred over, so that's why you've seen the same (or similar) photos and text that is weeks and months past.   I'm almost finished transferring all of my work over to my new blog and it has certainly been a journey. I have realized that photography is Read more [...]
Soft and Buttery Dinner Rolls

Soft and Buttery Dinner Rolls

  Butter lovers unite! These soft & buttery dinner rolls are an answer to prayer. The dough is supple, tender, and melt in your mouth, with an unparalleled butter flavor. Probably because they are nearly drenched in butter.   Some thing you should know about […]

Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip

Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip

I love cheesecake. I love pumpkin. I love candied pecans. Why not put them all together in this Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip with Candied Pecans?   Leia and I had a blast creating this dip. We started off by making a delicious batch of her Soft […]

Parmesan Skillet Potatoes

Parmesan Skillet Potatoes

  Sometimes life happens and the things we have so carefully planned out change. Like how yesterday I had big plans to clean my home, finish the laundry, finish a craft that I've been working on since March, write a few blog posts, and make one of my favorite soups for dinner.   However, in all my glory of trying to be crafty while watching my latest favorite Netflix show, Drop Dead Diva, during nap time, I managed to blindly submerge my fingertip into a large glob of molten hot glue from Read more [...]
Soft & Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookies

Soft & Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookies

  These are seriously everything you could want in a cookie: melty chocolate, gooey center, crisp edges, and they stay soft and delicious even if you leave them uncovered on the counter overnight! …not that I have ample experience doing that…   When beating the […]

Sweet & Spicy Wassail

Sweet & Spicy Wassail

  Wah-soul. Wuh-suhl. Wahs-sole. Wassil. An Old English saying that means “be you healthy.” Thank you, Wikipedia.   A couple years ago I made this drink for a Craft Night I hosted at my house. All of the girls that came were impressed with the […]

Chili Chicken Stew

Chili Chicken Stew

This is my all time favorite soup. As a kid it was my favorite soup. As an adult, it is still my favorite soup.   Earlier this week, I asked my husband what I should call this soup since we've referred to it as both "stew" and "soup." Our conversation became a discussion of attempting to define stews, soups, and chili. We both agreed that stew implies some sort of thickish base and big hunks of potatoes, carrots, and steak. Soup has more of a thin, brothy, base, and can be chunk-free, Read more [...]
Cranberry Marshmallow Salad

Cranberry Marshmallow Salad

  Cranberry Marshmallow Salad. Chock full of fresh cranberries, fresh apples, pineapple, marshmallows, and heavy whipping cream. Oh yeah, and some extra sugar, because there isn’t enough “naturally occurring.” This was my most favorite side dish at Thanksgiving when I was a kid. I probably […]
