Recipe on HBH (linked in profile) Make this one soon. What’s your go-to Sunday night dinner? #eatingfortheinsta #f52grams #instayum #pumpkin #pasta
  • Spiced Pecan Apple Cider Doughnut Cake. Because nothing is better than Sunday baking in the fall. This is a new favorite.

It will make your Sunday...and the leftovers are good all week long. Full recipe with details on HBH (link in profile). 🍎🍂

  • October nights require a good cocktail, enter the “Sleepy Hollow” Cocktail. An "eerie" name for a dang good tequila cocktail because I like to have fun with these drinks...but I like to make them GOOD 🎃 made with rosemary, orange infused honey, a good shot of tequila, a splash of pomegranate, some other things, and finished with an extra fancy sugared rim (mostly because it’s fun). Kind of like a margarita, but dressed up for October. Recipe on HBH - linked in profile. PS. I had the HARDEST time name this. What would you call this drink?? Get creative 💀#spookycocktailsaturday #Halloween #hbhcocktailsaturday #tequila
  • It is FREEZING here…think single digits cold! Sooo, I’m making my 3 Cheese Stuffed Shells, because when it’s this cold, you make cheesy pasta. To me this dish is kind of like cheese filled ravioli, but without all the work. These shells are beyond good (the sauce is everything...and it's all made in 1 skillet…easy). The full recipe lives in the new cookbook, HBH Super Simple. BUT I’m going to make the recipe - start to finish - on my stories currently...because we should all be making stuffed pasta shells this weekend. And? If you haven't pre-order the cookbook yet, the link is in my profile. #pasta #f52grams #hbhsupersimple
