Happy Weekend!

We've had so. much. rain. lately. Which has made for a long string of dark, dreary days. After dropping off Tessa at a friend's house yesterday, I was driving along the lake when the sun popped out from behind the clouds. It was dazzling. And it felt like A GIFT. I had to stop the car and click.

The weather broke just in time for our high school's first home football game of the season. Hatti invited a few girlfriends over before the game, to eat nachos and s'mores pie (I'll be sharing this AWESOME pie recipe soon!) and get in the "USA" themed spirit for the game.

I tested a number of recipes this week, so much fall and holiday goodness. I absolutely do not like letting go of summer. But fall and holiday cooking and baking always remind me that this is a wonderful time of year, too!

Thank you so much for joining us here each week, for reading the blog, and for following along on social media. We are grateful for your company.

Wishing you an awesome weekend!


NEW: On The Blog This Week

Honey Mustard Chicken and Vegetables is a flavorful comfort meal that cooks up in one pan. A rich honey mustard sauce (with a little bit of sweet curry and cayenne, so good!) nestles in with the potatoes, greens beans, and crispy-skinned chicken for a complete meal!

CRUMBS: What We Made Recently

Every time I've posted about banana bread on Instagram the past year or so, I've gotten multiple requests for the recipe. Well I finally honed in on getting the recipe just right, so I could share it on the blog. I'll be sharing it soon, stay tuned!

Do you like wild rice? Pomegranate seeds? They're a couple of my favorite ingredients through the fall/winter/holiday season. And I have a super delish salad to share with you soon!


ARCHIVES: Yum From The Past

These Chocolate Chip Cookies from The Vanilla Bean Baking Book have been super popular on the blog lately. If you haven't yet tried these ultra flat big-as-your-head cookies, DO IT!! With a soft and chewy center, surrounded by crinkly, wrinkly, crispy prettiness, they are a total treat!

This Parmesan Black Pepper Galette with Sweet Potato and Apple is easy to make and bakes up tender, flaky, and delicious.

This Caramel Apple Almond Crisp has apples that are sweetened with just the right amount of caramel, and topped with a bulked up oats and almond crisp that’s crunchy, buttery, and just a little bit saltier than the norm…it’s absolutely irresistible.

This German Potato Salad is tangy, smoky, and sweet…my idea of the perfect kind of salad. It's a really wonderful potato salad for when the weather turns chilly.

This Wheat Berry and Spinach Salad with Orange-Curry Vinaigrette is perfectly beautiful for any holiday table. I love the bright apple and pomegranate bites!
