Lemon Poppy Seed Bread

Even though it is only 41 degrees here today AND it snowed this morning, I thought lemon poppy seed bread would be a great start to spring! This recipe is amazing, but next time I might add some sour cream or plain greek yogurt for extra moisture. What you’ll need: 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened…

Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

Awhile back I was at a brick oven pizzeria and tried their stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer and I was HOOKED. I knew I could make something similar — and here we are! I promise you won’t be disappointed! What you’ll need: Package of portobello mushroom caps Around five pieces of cooked bacon (or more!)…

Easy one pot chicken alfredo! 😍

Hey all! A few months ago I posted an amazing potato soup recipe that has been a huge hit with my work friends, so I thought I would share another one of my favorites. I compare this one to Olive Garden’s chicken alfredo recipe — and I guarantee you will not go back to store…

Amazingly easy & delicious creamy potato soup!

Tonight I made an amazing batch of creamy potato soup that I knew I had to share asap! It took me about five minutes to throw everything together, and it doesn’t even call for flour or canned cream of chicken. It feels much lighter than your typical potato soup recipe, but not lacking in flavor…

Copycat Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Latte

I don’t know about you, but on a chilly Sunday morning, I don’t feel like getting out to make a Starbucks run. I also don’t feel like over paying for a drink I could easily make at home.

Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

It is tradition for my son and I to go on an every other weekend donut run, and we do have a couple of amazing mom and pop donut shops around the corner; however, if we don’t get up early enough they are all sold out. So this past weekend, we didn’t wake up until…

The best chocolate chip cookies, ever!

This has been my go-to recipe for the last few years. I am a fan of soft, chewy chocolate chip cookies, and these are it! You will never look back after you try this one out. I have never made another chocolate chip cookie recipe since finding this one. The corn starch is the secret…

Peanut Butter Pie

Okay, so there is a story behind this peanut butter pie. As noted in my last post, I am doing a low-carb diet. I don’t follow it super strictly, but I am making an effort to pay attention to labels and ingredients. Apparently, there’s tons of unhealthy stuff added to the delicious peanut butter I…

Rejoice, low-carb chili!

I remember a few years ago (then in my early twenties), a friend that is several years older would watch me eat whenever and whatever I wanted. She would always say, “Just wait until you’re almost 30, your metabolism will slow down over night.” Boy, was she right! Between my very sedative job, my love…

Taco Tuesday

So taco salad still counts for Taco Tuesday, right?! I grew up on this recipe and it is SO easy. It also makes enough to feed a small army; granted, I’m usually only cooking for myself and a four year old, so I always have leftovers. On to the recipe! You will need the following:…
