I’ve always loved desserts in bar form for several reasons. And these Chocolate Shortbread Bars are no exception. It’s quicker. No scooping cookie dough onto baking sheets. Easy to transport in the baking dish. Can get fancy with layering with very little effort! These bars […]

Creamy Dreamy Mushroom Fettuccine

Creamy Dreamy Mushroom Fettuccine

This pasta recipe is creamy, comforting, and even slightly romantic food at its finest. In the time it takes to boil water and cook pasta, you can make the easy mushroom cream sauce. If you’re looking for a meal that’s on the lighter side, keep […]

Brown Butter Sugar Cookies

Brown Butter Sugar Cookies

I love a traditional cut out sugar cookies with a good icing or frosting on top just as much as the next person. But, dare I say, these Brown Butter Sugar Cookies are so good they don’t even need icing. Yes, you read that right. […]

Cinnamon Apple Dutch Baby Pancake

One. Pot. Meals. Need I say more? There are two things that help elevate this dish. 1. We’re taking the extra step of browning the chicken thighs first in the same pot. Because crispy chicken skin is bae. 2. Instead of water, we use chicken […]

By now you should know that I’m not afraid of carbs. Life is short and sometimes you need a fluffy, flaky biscuit drizzled in honey. I love how quick this recipe comes together. I like to use a smaller biscuit cutter so you have lots […]
