Parmesan Garlic Zucchini Whole Wheat Focaccia Buns

I figured I should post these soon. I mean the Fourth of July is Thursday, and that’s got to be one of the most popular days of the year for a bun. Plus these buns are better than any of those store-bought buns.

Did you guess this was coming? Making doughnut s’mores was honestly the whole reason why I made the Graham Crackers Doughnuts. The minute the idea popped into my head, I knew I had to make them.

Healthy Loaded Cheddar + Blue Cheese Buffalo Chicken Dogs

How do you guys feel about hot dogs? Personally, my family is not all that into them. See, I love idea of hots dogs. Grilling them over fire and all the endless toppings. I mean these loaded cheddar hots dogs and these CajunAndouille hot dogs are pretty awesome. It’s the dog part we don’t really like.

Blistered Tomato Grilled Toast Caprese Nachos with Balsamic Glaze

Yes, this is real. Caprese nachos are a real thing. A real, cheesy, hot, crunchy, tomatoey, fresh basily thing. Also a twenty-minute thing. Also a no oven, no heating up the house thing too, if you choose.

Blackened Salmon with Cheesy Polenta and Spicy Peach + Chard Corn Salsa

You guys I love my fruit salsas. To be honest I have not always been a fan of salsa. Before this year I never even went near the stuff. I was a “don’t let that lime juice, cheese, or whatever else, come near my fruit”, kind of girl. If I wanted a peach, I just […]

Giant Hot Fudge Ice Cream Sundae Cookies

These cookies owned me. They whooped my little butt. They beat me down till I just could not make another batch. This is the third batch you are looking at. Yes, I made three full batches of these cookies in less than twenty-four hours. Twenty-four hours! And no, it was not because I ate them […]

  • Without a doubt this garlic butter creamed corn chicken is my go-to dinner right now. It's that time of year when I have more corn than I know what to do with. Anyone else?!? Couldn't love this skillet dinner more. video really say's it all.  If you haven't yet, you must make this before summers end. Recipe below and full detailed recipe on HBH - link in profile. ..
1. Rub the chicken with 1 tbs olive oil, 1 tbs fresh thyme, and season generously with salt and pepper. Sprinkle lightly with flour.2. Cook 4 slices bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Drain onto paper towels.3. Add the chicken to the pan and sear on both sides until golden. Remove the chicken from the pan. Drizzle with olive oil and add 1 onion, cooking until fragrant. Add 2 tbs butter, 4 cups fresh corn, 2 cloves garlic, and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Cook 5 minutes, until the corn is golden.
5. Reduce the heat to medium low and pour 3/4 cup white wine and 1/2 cup water. Add the chicken to the skillet.  Simmer for 10-15 minutes until cooked through. Stir in 1/2 cup cream (or canned coconut milk) and 1/2 cup parmesan. Remove from the heat and top with bacon. Serve with fresh thyme and basil. Enjoy! #eeeeeats #howisummer #summerrecipes #buzzfeast #recipevideo
  • Corn, Tomato, and Avocado Chickpea Salad. The quick fix salad that’s almost no-cook and comes together in minutes. Grab that can of chickpeas from the pantry, some fresh cherry tomatoes, sweet corn, cucumbers, all your favorite herbs, feta cheese (because every salad needs cheese...), and an avocado. Make a caramelized shallot vinaigrette…toss it all together, and done. Best late summer salad. Shared the recipe on HBH last week. Grab the link in my profile. #eeeeeats #feedfeed #howisummer #summerrecipes #imsomartha #easyrecipes
  • (weeknight style) Instant Pot BBQ Beer Pulled Chicken Tacos…with spicy avocado ranch and sweet corn slaw. Because loaded tacos are just better. These might be a little different, but hear me out because these tacos are saucy, spicy, loaded with creamy avocado ranch style sauce, corn slaw, n' things. Nothing boring, all things really good. What Monday night needs most. Recipe up on HBH today - linked in profile. PS. You can make these in the slow cooker OR on the stove too. Directions on HBH. #eeeeeats #feedfeed #f52grams #buzzfeast #imsomartha #howisummer
  • Peaches and Cream Pretzel Pie 🍑 what August Sunday's are truly made for. LOVE this pie. It's sweet, buttery, salty, and so creamy. If you hit up the farm stand this weekend, this is what you should make with those juicy peaches. Promise. It's a GOOD idea. Recipe on HBH - link in profile. PS. what did everyone make/bake/eat this weekend? #eatingfortheinsta #howisummer #feedfeed #instayum #peaches #imsomartha
