Butter Pecan Cookies…Drizzled with Chocolate.

I had every intention to make non-chocolate butter pecan cookies. I had my butter, pecans, sugar, and flour. There was not a chocolate chip, chocolate bar, or box of cocoa powder within 8 feet of me and my mixer. I had a goal, no chocolate! Just some butter and pecans. The cookies went into the […]

Crockpot Cranberry Chicken.

So yeah, photography? I am pretty sure it is not my thing. I mean I may be able to cook, but I am no photographer! Seriously, what on earth does ISO and aperture mean? I never knew there were so many photography terms! There is so much to learn, it can be overwhelming at times. I am learning though, […]

Popovers.

When I was thirteen I made my very first batch of popovers. I had no fancy pan and no prior experience with baking any kind of bread what so ever! I was a baking virgin with some eggs, a Williams Sonoma recipe, and a hand-held mixer. Oh, and lots of butter. My family had just […]

Sourdough Bread Bowls

We kind of like bread over here. Especially with our soup. Most people do. Crusty, flavorful bread hot out of the oven with a smear of butter or dunked in soup, creamy soup. If you have never attempted to make your own bread then I urge you to start now! Nothing beats fresh homemade bread […]

  • Fudgy Avocado Brownies with Chocolate Fudge Frosting. PLEASE do not let the avocado scare you, these brownies are insanely good...and a lot healthier than your average brownie. They're chocolatey, perfectly sweet, studded with chocolate chunks, and finished with the best chocolate frosting. The avocados only add richness, I promise you don't taste them. And? +gluten-free. Know this sounds too good to be true, but trust me. These are GOOD. Even the brothers said so. That is HUGE. Recipe on HBH today - linked in profile. #hbhhealthyjanuary #chocolatelovers
  • Kale Pesto Cheese Pizza. When it's January, but you really want a little cheesy pizza...make this. It’s veggie filled (hello to sun-dried tomatoes + crispy kale + lemony arugula), but extra cheesy too. Sooo, it's balanced. And it's DELICIOUS. Made this yesterday on @goodmorningamerica with @ginger_zee (did you watch??). Grab the in the HBH Super Simple Cookbook. Link in profile. PS. I’ll make on stories soon too! #HBHSuperSimple #gingerscookclub

It's healthy. And perfect for this blizzard happening currently outside. Shared the recipe on HBH today (link in profile) and making this on stories real soon :) #hbhhealthyjanuary
  • Creamy (garlic butter) Sun-Dried Tomato Tuscan Chicken and Orzo. Just like your favorite Italian chicken and pasta dinner, but all made in one skillet.

Maybe add some wine too :) ENJOY. ... ... 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil 1 pound chicken breasts 1 tsp each dried oregano + paprika red pepper flakes kosher salt and black pepper 2 tbs butter 1 medium shallot, chopped 2 cloves garlic, minced or grated 1 cup dry orzo pasta 1/3 cup dry white wine 1 cup heavy cream (or canned coconut milk) 2 tsp Dijon mustard 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese 2 cups fresh baby spinach 1/2 cup oil packed sun-dried tomatoes, oil drained juice of 1 lemon .. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet set over medium-high heat. Rub the chicken with olive oil, the oregano, paprika, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Sear on both sides until golden, 3-5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet. Add the butter and shallot, cooking 3 minutes. Add the garlic and orzo, cooking until lightly golden, 2-3 minutes. Add the wine and de-glaze the pan. Add 1 1/2 cups water. Bring to a boil, cook 3-5 minutes, then add the cream, mustard, parmesan, spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes, stirring until the spinach has wilted. Slide the chicken and any juices left on the plate back into the skillet.
