Pumpkin Apple Butter Granola

Pumpkin Apple Butter Granola is the perfect fall snack. It’s officially fall in Baltimore. There’s a nip in the air, the leaves are a beautiful shade of bright red orange, the sky is cloudy and gray, I’ve busted out my hoodies and North Face jacket, and I’m still in flip-flops. I know that last...

Allspice Cinnamon Chip Streusel Muffins

These Allspice Cinnamon Chip Streusel Muffins are the muffin of fall! Mondays aren’t normally my favorite day of the week, but this Monday is different. After being confined to my house and my couch for two weeks due to a foot injury, it’s good to get back to my normal life (even if that...

Lemon Meringue Pie

This Lemon Meringue Pie has a tart, zesty lemon custard that gets piled high with the fluffiest meringue.

Smoky Slow Cooker Venison Chili

This week’s #SundaySupper theme is all about comfort food, and who doesn’t enjoy some good old soul-satisfying food? This Smoky Slow Cooker Venison Chili is the very definition of comfort food.

Nutella Swirl Pumpkin Chocolate Muffins

Push aside that healthy bowl of oatmeal for one of these Nutella Swirl Pumpkin Chocolate Muffins. They’re sweet and decadent, moist and tender. Why should you make muffins? Um, they’re delicious! Need more convincing? Oh, all right. They’re individual, which means there’s no need to share and, as you all know, I don’t respond...

Orange Pumpkin Pancakes

Happy Wednesday! Today is a good day. Why? Because I’m posting my very first breakfast food on the blog. I made pancakes, and not just any pancakes, orange pumpkin pancakes! They’re fluffy and loaded with warm spices and pureed pumpkin. I had some leftover pumpkin puree in the fridge, and you know how much...

Strawberry Balsamic Jam

Happy #SundaySupper! This week we were challenged to make a recipe using five ingredients or less. Now, I’m a baker, so this was an exceptionally hard challenge for me, but one I was willing to try. After some thought, this Strawberry Balsamic Jam was born. It’s sweet, tangy, and perfect for spreading. I like...
