• Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies

    Chocolate Chip cookies are my down fall and these Brown Sugar ones are a must.  If there is one close by you can count on me to try it.  I am always on the search for the BEST Chocolate Chip cookie, and while I have some favorites (such as these) I am a BIG, BIG fan of this recipe. Can there be too much chocolate? In my opinion there can never be too much chocolate in a cookie.  To make these cookies something super special I used 2 types of chocolate, dark and semi sweet chocolate.  I love the bite of the dark chocolate and the smoothness of the semi…

  • Skillet Chicken Enchiladas

    Skillet Chicken Enchiladas are the perfect quick fix dinner and I am all about a quick fix dinner.  After coming home from work I defiantly love the idea of dinner being ready in less than 45 minutes.   One Pan and DONE! Everything for this recipe is all done in one skillet,  yes you read that right ONE SKILLET!  You make the sauce, cook the chicken and finish it all in one skillet.  That means only one skillet to clean and tons of flavor being created.   Make sure you use a high side skillet and not a shallow skillet… it will bubble over once you add in the tortillas…

  • A Christmas Tradition

    Christmas is just around the corner and I think I am going to have to make these again.  Don’t be scared…you can do this. It is all about Christmas patience Homemade cinnamon rolls are 1000% better than the canned version, but beware you have to plan ahead.  You need several hours (I started the process the night before) to let the dough proof and get ready to roll up into rolls.    SO what is proofing you ask?  Proofing is when you let the dough rise.  For this dough we are wanting it to rise, or proof, quite a bit.  The goal is at least double from its original size.…

  • Pumpkin Pasta is a must for Fall

    SO it is no secret that I love PUMPKIN everything.  Literally I am the one who gets tears in her eyes when PSL makes it debut at starbucks each Fall.  I am also that girl who goes to Trader Joes and buys EVERYTHING pumpkin they have (even the dog treats). My last shopping trip… There was also a pumpkin kringle in there.  I just CANNOT get enough pumpkin!! Really in Pasta? So I am a BIG, BIG pumpkin and pasta fan.  My first experience with it was in a ravioli (similar to the ones I got from Trader Joe’s) and then I had it with butternut squash in a lasagna…

  • Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Brownies – The Fall Brownie

    Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Brownies are everything to me right now.  They scream…Hello Fall!  I so love this time of year.  I love the cooler weather, sweaters, leaves falling and the smell of pumpkin spice EVERYWHERE! Look at that swirl… I am all about a good swirl…whether it be in my margarita or my brownie.  The swirl in these brownies are epic though.  The color of the pumpkin swirl next to the dark chocolate brownie batter is the perfect contrast.   These Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Brownies are everything fall should be. A little extra chocolate love… To add a little extra chocolate to these already decadent brownies I added in some…

  • Pumpkin Crumb Muffin

    It’s Pumpkin Crumb Muffin Time, Y’all!  I know it is still August, but y’all I am all about pumpkin spice everything…and these muffins are the perfect kick-off to my pumpkin obsession! Just enough spice… The thing I love most about pumpkin spice is the combo of the spices.  There is a little cinnamon, some clove, some ginger, not too much of any one spice and not too little…it really is the perfect combo.  Pumpkin spice makes me feel all warm and cozy inside, just soooo happy. These muffins have pumpkin not only int he batter but also in the topping but don’t worry it is not over powering…it is just…

    Are you a fan of stuffed jalapeños?  I AM and this KETO Poblano Chicken Casserole is everything you love about a stuffed jalapeño and MORE! Starting with Chicken!

The delicious sauce is a wonderful combo of cream cheese, heavy cream, garlic, chicken stock and some spices.  It is loaded with tons of FLAVOR and is so easy you…

    KETO Meatloaf is the epitome of comfort food in my book.  This dish takes me back to my childhood but with an update making it KETO and kid friendly. Mini in size…BIG in flavor I made this meatloaf in muffin pans not only because it makes it super easy but also because they are just so darn cute!!  Each little meatloaf is a little bigger than a meatball making them a fun size.  You can have a few for dinner and then a few for lunch the next day.
