Mom’s Ridiculously Easy Butterscotch Monkey Bread.

Sometimes, you just should not mess with a good thing. Like your mom’s recipes. Especially when she only has a handful of them. Seriously, do not be stupid like me and try to make them better or give them more of a wow factor. It just does not work.

Which means Christmas is just days away. Are you guys ready? I am nowhere near ready. Not ready for the month of December to be over, […]

  • (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
  • Fig Bourbon Cider Smash. Picked up the first jug of fresh apple cider at today, so obviously I'm making my favorite bourbon smash. It's my go-to this time of year. ALSO. I'm working on all my COCKTAIL SATURDAY recipes for fall and thinking of starting early September! What drinks do you want to see? I'm in full on"spooky" Halloween mode at the moment and couldn't be more excited about it. Until then you should make this bourbon smash. It's the easiest and it's SO GOOD. Perfect for in season figs. Recipe linked in profile. #f52grams #buzzfeast #imsomartha #CLkitchen #hbhcocktailsaturday
  • No Fuss (Healthy) Coconut Cream Tart. Super easy, delicious, extra pretty, and just so happens to be vegan and gluten-free. Not sure how I did it, but it works and honest? This is SO GOOD. It's the creamiest "cream" filling and perfectly flavored with coconut + vanilla and a touch salty too. Top with all the fresh figs (you must try figs...please!!) and berries. Super simple, pretty healthy...ish, and so dang delicious. Shared the recipe on HBH - link in profile. Should I make this on stories tomorrow? #eatingfortheinsta #eeeeeats  #feedfeed #instayum #coconuttart #howisummer
