Snickers Coconut Caramel Cupcakes

It’s Friday! Hooray! And I am NOT showing you ice cream! Wait, what?? I know, it is a miracle that I actually baked a dessert. Like in the oven, HOT temps people. Not the below freezing ones I have been hiking in lately. Trust me, it was hard to actually get my brain to think […]

Cheesy Cajun Fries with Grilled Corn Guacamole, Bacon and Fried Eggs

Let’s just start putting drippy fried eggs on everything. K? Oh wait, I have already been doing that. I really don’t know why, but every other recipe I want to make I think “oh, I should put an egg on top of that”, or, “oh, I think an egg stuffed in there would be good”, or ” […]

Peanut Butter Banana Frozen Yogurt Pops with Chocolate Drizzle

You guys know what’s really weird? I absolutely HATE being cold, but yet I continue to make frozen treats. Frozen treats that when I photograph, make me shiver. For some reason every time I shoot any kind of ice cream my hands end up molding the ice cream into a cone, or sandwiching it between […]

Good God almighty, hallelujah! (I have listened to way too much Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw these last couple days) The past four days of weather have been full on summer bliss!  Granted […]

Hot Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookie Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwich.

I told you there was more ice cream coming…. Except this one I can’t take credit for. Ok, well I did make it, but the idea behind it was my picky no vegetable, no fruit, no fish-eating teenage brother. Malachi or Kai or even Malachi John as I call him when he is annoying the […]

BBQ Grilled Corn, Jalapeño and Peach Quinoa Salad.

Please someone, I need some help. No, not with my mental state, although some people may argue this. And no not with my current corn, jalapeño or ice cream obsessions. No I like those just the way they are and to be honest they are probably just getting going. I am thinking they are not […]

Peanut Butter Burgers with Slim Jim Fries and Chocolate Malted Milkshake.

Also known as the peanutburger. What’s a peanutburger you ask? Well, if you live on the west side of Cleveland, Ohio than you probably already know the answer to this one. But for those of you from any other part of the world, let me tell you. Bearden’s is a diner style restaurant straight out of the 50’s. […]

Corn Fritters with Coconut Whipped Cream and Sweet Honey Bourbon Syrup.

Today the pictures say it all. Which is why I have a total of ten. Yes, ten. Remember I have a problem with decisions and I just could not decide which photos to use. Originally there was eighteen, so give me some credit. At least I got rid of eight, but trust me it was hard. […]

Caprese Quinoa Grilled Stuffed Mushrooms with Balsamic Glaze.

I did something that made me very happy this weekend. I made my first caprese themed recipe of the year. Ok, fine I guess it’s not my first since last August. I did make these awesome Roasted Asparagus Caprese Melts with a Fried Egg, but it’s been a few months and fresh spring produce is finally starting […]

Sweet Honey Jalapeño Cheddar Cornbread Biscuits

  • Spiced Pecan Apple Cider Doughnut Cake. Because nothing is better than Sunday baking in the fall. This is a new favorite. The key is ripple of sweet maple throughout the center of the cake makes it gooey and so dang good. And then well, butter and apples, and a good amount of cinnamon sugar too. Make this please. 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
  • Pumpkin Coffee Cake Muffins...with Cinnamon Honey Butter. Snowed all day. It's still snowing...I'm not ready for it. SO. Baking my favorite muffins is obviously the thing to do. These are an oldie, but such a goodie and perfect cold days. They are stuffed with cream cheese, topped with crumbly streusel, and best served warm with generous smear of cinnamon honey butter. Nothing better. Recipe on HBH - link in profile 🎃 But should I also make these on my stories?? #eeeeeats #imsomartha #CLkitchen #pumpkin
