  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 […]

Scrumptious Caramel Dip

  This is one of my favorite caramel dips of all time. It is really simple, easy, and comes together in about five minutes. I haven’t met anyone who didn’t like it. This caramel is not too thick and not too thin. If dipping apples […]

Sweet & Spicy Wing Sauce

Sweet & Spicy Wing Sauce

  If you've ever visited or lived in Utah, you know what Wingers restaurant is. If you've ever tried their classic, original, wings, you know what this sauce tastes like. This recipe is all over the place but originally for me, it came from a friend of mine who is from Utah. I don't know who came up with the first original, or if it was given out by Wingers, but it's a pretty common recipe.   This is one sauce that is straight up perfect without my own changes or flair. Every once in awhile Read more [...]
