Honey Orange Glazed Ahi Tuna

Life gets busy. Fact! This Honey Orange Glazed Ahi Tuna comes together in a few short minutes. We don’t always have the time to cook a gourmet meal during the week. Would I love to cook like Julia Child during the week? Yes. But, the fact is, I just don’t have time. Like most of...

Slow Cooker Pizza Dip with Toasted Garlic Bread Dippers

Slow Cooker Pizza Dip | www.themessybakerblog.com

That title lured you in, didn’t it? I knew it would. There’s no resisting a title of that caliber. Slow Cooker Pizza Dip with Toasted Garlic Bread Dippers… All scrolled on one line. It’s enticing. Pizza is great on its own, but turn it into a dip made with spicy sausage, green peppers, and a generous...

Pear Cinnamon Muffins with Brown Sugar Almond Streusel

These Pear Cinnamon Muffins with Brown Sugar Almond Streusel are the perfect kind of comfort during the cold months of winter. Brr, it’s freezing in Baltimore.

This week I have the pleasure of working with Land O Lakes® to create this Creamy Parmesan Pasta with Chicken & Mushrooms.

Mojito Bundt Cake

Today I’m celebrating my love for mojitos in the form of a cake for this month’s citrus themed #BundtAMonth. As you may know, I adore mojitos. They’re my absolute favorite cocktail. When An from Bakerstreet announced that January’s theme was citrus, this Mojito Bundt Cake instantly came to mind. Citrus is a great way...

Chicken and Biscuit Pot Pie Casserole

This Chicken and Biscuit Pot Pie Casserole is the ultimate comfort dish. It’s loaded with fresh veggies, tender chunks of chicken, and topped with homemade biscuits. Remember this post a few weeks ago where I discussed the idea of creating a catchphrase? I felt compelled to create a phrase that everyone would associate with me, The Messy Baker,...

Orange Scented Steel Cut Oats

This creamy bowl of Orange Scented Steel Cut Oats is the perfect way to start the day. I planned on bestowing you with a lovely new muffin recipe this week; however, the muffins had other plans. They decided to be lazy and refused to rise. I think they had good intentions on rising but...

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream

This Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream is thick, creamy, and supremely decadent. Chocolate ice cream gets swirled with peanut butter sauce and loaded with a generous helping of peanut butter cups. We have a birthday in the house. #SundaySupper turns one today! I have my party hat and party horn ready. Let’s get...

Guinness Braised Short Ribs

Nothing quite compares to meat that has been cooking for hours, and these Guinness Braised Short Ribs are no different. They’re fall-off-the-bone good! Is anyone else still in holiday mode? My Christmas decorations still deck the halls in my house. Call me lazy, but I have no desire to take them down. I don’t...
