Cheesecake-filled Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

I have been searching for a yummy new bar cookie recipe and recently came across this recipe on Pinterest and knew I had found “the one”. I love the traditional brown sugar & butter rich chocolate chip cookie. But, I instantly became obsessed with the idea […]

Spicy & Sweet: Sriracha, Brown Sugar & Garlic Wings

Whew, summer has started in our household!! VBS, hours of swimming, Monopoly marathons ((Oh, I warned them of the Monopoly pitfalls — but so far they are having a grand time. I am holding my breath)), reading races and general free-spirited shenanigans. (more…)

Chard and White Bean Italian Soup with Crispy Sausage

Chard and White Bean Italian Soup with Crispy Sausage

A few pounds of dried white beans is a pantry staple must in my home. If I am out of protein options, running low on meal ideas, or just looking for some simple ((healthy)) comfort food, beans take care of business every single time. AND […]
