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 […]

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 & Chewy Ginger cookies. While those were cooling and our attempts at keeping our children's grabby hands away were failing, we threw together a few things in a bowl and created some Pumpkin Cheesecake dip.   It was good, but didn't have that wow factor Read more [...]
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 […]

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 amazing aroma in the air, as well as the flavor of this delicious drink. It's a combination of cider, citrus fruit juice, and some spices. Perfect for a chilly morning or evening.   It's a perfect combination of spicy, tangy, and sweet, with the wonderful Read more [...]
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 […]

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

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 is not your thing, try it as a caramel sauce over ice cream, brownies, or with other foods like pretzels.   You'll notice in the recipe that it calls for margarine instead of butter. This is very uncharacteristic of me. And there is an explanation for it. For whatever Read more [...]
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 […]
