Cinnamon-Roasted Sweet Potato & Apple Salad with Caramel Vinaigrette Chicken (the best fall salad)

I am obsessed with this salad.  I want to eat it every day.  At least until I get sick of it.  But I’m not sure I’ll ever get sick of the cinnamon-roasted sweet potatoes, apples, and the caramel vinaigrette chicken that goes into it. It’s like dinner (or lunch) and dessert in one big, beautiful…

Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

I really want to tell you this cauliflower mac and cheese is healthy…because, you know, it has cauliflower in it.  But all the cheddar cheese, cream cheese, milk, sour cream…and then some more cheese that went into it, kind of ruined any chance it had of being healthy. So….sorry about that.    But let me just…

Caramel Apple Stacks

These caramel apple stacks are a fun twist on the classic fall favorite- caramel apples.  Sliced apples are stacked on top of each other, each with a layer of thick caramel cream cheese (it’s really just a caramel apple dip) spread in between.    Of course they need a generous drizzle of caramel sauce and…

Snickerdoodle Sheet Cake

I first tried snicker doodle cake at a good friend’s baby shower just a couple of weeks ago.  It was a layer cake- and in between each layer, and slathered all over the top and sides, was the most amazing brown sugar cinnamon buttercream.  I had that cake on my mind for days. Brett’s parents…

I’m on the road today.  We’re heading to Aspen, Colorado for the weekend to attend a wedding.  I’ve  never actually been to Aspen so I’m a teensy bit excited to spend some time there….and maybe see a celebrity or two vacationing there as well.  Hopefully, I’ve got my nose in the book The Help because…

Italian Sausage and Veggie Pasta

Before I get too ahead of myself with fall recipes, I’ve still got three giant zucchinis I need to use up before they go bad.   But I have no clue what to do with them.   I’ve already made zucchini bread. And zucchini cookies.  I’ve sauteed it, roasted it, and made a pretty tasty zucchini…

Slow Cooker Chipotle Chicken & Black Bean Chili

I enjoyed using my slow cooker during the summer to keep the oven off and the house cool.  But now that it’s fall, I can start using it to make warm, comforting soups and chilis.  Even though we’re still having a few 80 degree days here, I’m welcoming the season of soups and chilis with…

Gooey Vanilla Bean Popcorn


You can probably guess what I love most about the two new seasons upon us {fall and football of course.} The food.  Fall is my favorite time of year for baking. I tend to go a little pumpkin crazy.  And football season, well it just gives me an excuse to get together with friends, make…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Stuffed Crescent Rolls


One of the recent food trends seems to be stuffing cookies or cookie dough inside of things.  I was at the store the other day quickly grabbing a few things I needed for dinner.  One of those things being crescent rolls.  As I tossed them in my cart and started to walk away, I glanced…

Grilled Eggplant Parmesan

I tried eggplant for the first time this summer at a wedding luncheon last month.  They served Eggplant Parmesan and I was shocked at how much I loved it.  It was one of those, “Where has this been all my life?” kind of moments.  Yes, I am talking about eggplant.  Where has it been all…
