Sesame Chicken

This recipe is absolutely delicious - and the best part? It's easy! Where we live in Colorado we don't have the best representation of Chinese food so I've been compiling recipes of our favorites. You can find the original recipe at Swanky Recipes - but I've listed the way that I make it and it... Continue Reading →

Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies

Being as our family is under a shelter in place order I decided to make some cookies. I hadn't left out any butter to soften though so I chose to go with no bake cookies. I usually make these cookies from a recipe from a cookbook that is actually a collection of family recipes that... Continue Reading →

Chicken Pot Pie Crumble

Oh how I have searched for delicious alternatives to traditional chicken pot pie. I mentioned before in my Thanksgiving pie posts that I severely dislike pie crust. Well folks - I finally found the winner. The only substitution I make for this recipe is using wheat flour instead. I have used chicken thighs and chicken... Continue Reading →

Apple Crumble Pie

Instead of just making a traditional apple pie to take to my mom's for Thanksgiving this year I opted to try out a recipe I found on Pinterest for Apple Crumble Pie (it's listed as Caramel Apple Crumble Pie).

I adapted a Vanilla Bourbon Cherry Pie recipe I found on Pinterest to suit my particular tastes of not having to eat pie crust. You can find the pin on Pinterest... Continue Reading →

Chicken Burrito Bowls

This is one of my go to meals during the week that is quick, easy and loved by everyone in our family. I make it regardless of season and it's really just one of those meals that's readily put together that's also comforting - at least in my book. The longest parts are honestly cutting...

Lasagna Soup

Ever since I found this soup it has nearly hands down been my husband's absolute favorite soup. It's a soup that we sometimes make year round because it is really that good. You can find the recipe for this soup on A Farmgirl's Dabbles and it is insanely popular - once you make it you'll... Continue Reading →

Maple Graham Animals

My sister bought this cookbook for me shortly before my daughter was born and I haven't written about the recipes I've used from it before but I thoroughly enjoyed making this one. You can find this cookbook from Jenna Helwig (among others) on her website. The ingredients are SUPER simple and I had everything required... Continue Reading →
