• Oreo Stuffed Cookies

    Oreo cookies and 4th of July are a perfect combo and then you stuff them into a chocolate chip cookie, they are even better!! Let’s talk dough You could stuff oreo’s in any cookie you want but for me I wanted to make it a little extra fun for the 4th so I made M&M chocolate chip cookies. You could use your favorite sugar cookie recipe, plain chocolate chip cookie recipe, double chocolate cookie recipe…really just about anything you would like. Once you pick your dough you can get to stuffing! Hello Oreo Being that we are around the 4th of July I was able to use the Fireworks Oreo…

  • Berry Swirl Cheesecake Bars

    Cheesecake is always a good idea, but when you swirl it with berry jam… well thats just a whole new level of YUM! OH the Crust… One of my favorite parts of cheesecake is the crust.  I am a sucker for a good graham cracker crust.  There is just something so yummy about a buttery graham cracker crust.   I know you can make it with other crusts but for me I am a graham cracker girl all the way. Cheesecake Time! In my opinion a good cheesecake is rich, creamy, a little tart and a little sweet.   This one is all that and more because I used vanilla…

  • Banana Pudding Cheesecake

    Banana Pudding Cheesecake… yes you read that right, I am using banana’s in one of of my recipes. Let’s talk Nilla Wafer… I am all about a Nilla wafer.  Anytime I have a box of them in the house it disappears quickly.  I also love turning them into crust, and for this cheesecake they are the perfect crust option.  I mean you have to have Nilla Wafers with banana pudding… right? Banana’s are a must… I guess It is no secret I am not a fan of bananas AT ALL.  I don’t buy them, eat them, cook with them… nothing ever.  So when a sweet friend of mine asked me…

  • Butter Biscuits… yep butter biscuits

    Butter Biscuits= YES PLEASE!  For real… y’all these are so, so good (and super easy)!! Butter Biscuits = No rolling! Growing up in the south I am no stranger to biscuits… but I am not the biggest fan of making them.  If I do make them I typically made drop biscuits, or now these butter biscuits.  Well… unless I am feeling super ambitious I will make these Magnolia Biscuits, but typically just for special occasions. But these butter biscuits… well I will make these anytime. It starts with what else… Butter! I love these because you melt the butter in the dish you will be baking the biscuits in.  Not…

  • Simple Roasted Chicken

    Roasted Chicken is truly one of my staples for lunch & dinner.  I mean think about it you can pair it with just about anything & it is done in no time…making it perfect for dinner this week. All about prep… In my opinion prepping the chicken is the most important part.  This is when you can ensure there will be tons of flavor, it will be juicy and get the golden skin.  So how do we do all of this… well, hold on…here we go. First is about the flavor.  I prefer a little lemon, some herbiness (not sure that is a real word) and some delicious seasoning.  So…

  • Strawberry Bread – aka your summer bread

    Strawberry Bread is all I can think about… honestly I am all about the berries right now and especially strawberries. Strawberry Bread Time! Y’all I am so, so excited about this bread.  Not only is it super quick to make, but it is LOADED with strawberry goodness.  I mean just look at all the strawberries!   The bread itself is pretty dense, making it perfect to hold the strawberries in place, and not let them sink to the bottom of the bread.  It is also buttery, which I so love!    It is on the sweeter side… but not too sweet.   It is just so pretty! Not only is…

  • Roasted Berry Jam

    I am all about some jam in my life and this Roasted Berry Jam is everything I need and everything you want.

Berry Goodness Every time I walk into the grocery store I am overwhelmed with how good the berries look.  All of them look amazing.  The strawberries are bright…

Sweet Potatoes = Yummy There is just something so yummy about sweet potatoes.  I love them baked, roasted, alone, stuffed (like this BBQ stuffed version), in salads, in breakfast hash, as a side, as the main… ANYWAY really. One of my favorite recipes for sweet potatoes are these Garlic Parmesan Sweet Potatoes.  They are not only delicious but also super easy. Roasted and So Good! If I am not eating a whole sweet potato or mashed ones,  I roast them.  I roast them for several reasons.  First, I love how it intensifies the flavor of…

Puff Pastry + Berry Goodness = So Good! So most galettes I have had, are made with a more traditional pie crust, but for this one I used puff pastry. Yep, puff pastry.  I mean…

  • Instant Pot Pulled Pork Verde

    I am obsessed with this Instant Pot Salsa Verde Pulled Pork… truly OBSESSED!!  LIKE REALLY OBSESSED! Pulled Pork Love! I love me some good pulled pork, but when you add in a little heat from some salsa and green chilies it takes it to a whole new level.  This pork is cooked in a delicious mixture of salsa, chilies, stock and spices.  Once it all cooks down it becomes this amazing concentrated spicy sauce that takes this pork to the next level. Broil it a bit… In the idea of a carnita I pulled the pot from the broth and broiled it for just a bit to give it some…
