Breakfast is my favorite meal. I like to drink iced coffee and watch the cream climb its way down the chunky ice cubes in a dazy before the caffeine hits. I like to order bacon with whatever I’m eating.
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: sometimes the best creations are the ones you don’t set out to create!
We are carb lovers at our house, so when I saw the Braided Spaghetti Bread recipe in the Rhodes Home Baked Family Favorites with frozen dough cookbook I knew we would love it. This is a really simple recipe; it just takes a little planning for thawing the dough. It will take 2-3 hours for the bread loaf to thaw to room temperature or 1-2 hours for the rolls to thaw to room temperature.
One of my favorite Italian appetizers is Bruschetta and this recipe will sure have you going back for more. This appetizer goes great before a hearty pasta dish or any Italian main course.
This here soup was my go-to last year, so naturally when I went to make it for a nice Soupy Sunday post, my recipe was nowhere to be found. This isn’t quite the masterpiece I’d tweaked last year but it came pretty darn close. With all the cheese I packed into this it turns out almost like a fondue.
wow, so jessica and i finally had the chance to try another little recipe for our food series . this time something sweet – homemade nutella . the pics alone will show you how ridiculously easy this is to make, at a fraction of the price of real nutella … and it’s actually tastier (in my opinion) you’ll need a bar of your preferred chocolate – obviously the better the chocolate the nicer your nutella is going to be. the slab of beacon served us well, but i can imagine that using lindt would be delectable… 150 grams hazelnuts:
Last winter I hosted my first Soup Swap .
Broccoli cheese soup is my all time favorite soup! All of that cheesy goodness…YUM!

Now, I have a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I swear by. I love it, I think it is incredible, and I haven’t changed my mind about that. However, as much as it pains me to say it, these chocolate chip cookies by Jacques Torres are absolutely, without a doubt, the best chocolate chip cookies that I have ever made or tasted in my entire life.
Tuesday is my thirty-something birthday and I wanted to make something fun for myself. A little happiness in a jar for my happy day please! These are great because I know that in no way during the week could I make a cake for myself.
I know, I know, the potatoes pictured and defined in this post don’t necessarily fit the standard, high-class, French definition of au gratin potatoes, but in my defense, I grew up eating my mom’s cheesy potato dish which she always called au gratin potatoes so that’s what I’m calling these babies.

I don't know about y'all, but I'm *kind of* ready for colder weather. Now, when I say colder, I really mean somewhere in the upper 70's to low 80's. That's just about as cold as I can take it.
