Best Ever Hot Chocolate French Toast.

Yes, I am one hundred percent serious. Now please, do not get confused. I am in no way suggesting this for breakfast, although I can totally find many ways in my brain to justify this as breakfast. No, this is dessert and this dessert does not mess around.

Gingerbread Boy Granola.

I put some ginger cookie boys (or girls) in our granola! Yes, I really did and yes, it is just as awesome as it sounds. I have had this idea for what feels like months now. I even bought this mini gingerbread man cookie cutter weeks ago in preparation for this granola. Really, I just had the […]

Middle Eastern Chicken and Couscous Wraps with Goat Cheese.

Monday, you come too fast. At least I am bringing a little excitement, pleasure and color (aren’t they kind of Christmassy?) to the table. You know, a little kick-start to the week. These are not just any wraps either, these are some of the best I have ever made. They are kind of like the middle […]

Sugar Cookie Hot Cocoa Cupcakes.

Let me ask you guys a question. When you think of Christmas, how do you picture it? In my head, it is a winter wonderland full of snow, hot chocolate and marshmallows. Oh, and of course, the North Pole, Santa, his elves and his reindeer. No, I am not five. I am just currently stuck […]

Crazy Greek Feta, Sun-Dried Tomato and Pistachio Truffles

I think I need to start making more appetizers. And more Greek food. I love Greek food. I think it cures all things. Or at least I wish it cured all things. I am currently not feeling so good. I have that whole sore throat, achy thing going on. Complete with the chills and a […]

Easy Chicken Tamale Burrito Bowls

Let me tell you about the time I made Tamales. It was almost exactly a year ago. Well, it was just after Christmas and if you were reading back then you may remember we had twenty-one people in ONE house. Food was going quick, but we always have some sort of Mexican dish on New […]

30 Minute Sweet Asian Chili Pork, Ginger and Tangerine Stir Fry

So I get a lot of questions. Some of them super weird (like really weird), some of them super creepy, some super nosy and most that are thankfully – normal. By far my most asked question is how I come up with new recipes. I think I get asked this everyday, and not just by […]

Prepare for a ton of photos. We’re doing the nog today. To be honest, I am not really into eggnog. Well, eggnog as a drink. Eggnog in cinnamon rolls and these cheesecake bars? That I am into.

  • Fig Dark and Stormy. A touch sweet, citrusy, and warming. Basically the perfect September cocktail with a good amount of rum (bourbon would be SO good too) and topped with ginger beer. Recipe on HBH today - linked in profile. #f52grams #buzzfeast #autumnrecipes #fall #CLkitchen
  • Spiced Pecan Apple Cider Doughnut Cake. Kind of tastes like an old school apple cider doughnut…but in cake form. It's layered with a buttery, cinnamony apple pecan streusel. And real true secret? A ripple of sweet maple throughout the center of the cake. It's beyond good and best enjoyed while still warm, with a steaming mug of coffee…or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Sooo, the perfect thing to bake this weekend. Recipe on HBH - linked in profile. #f52grams #buzzfeast #autumnrecipes #fall #CLkitchen
  • Creamy, buttery Pesto Polenta with Thyme-Roasted Mushrooms and Chickpeas. The polenta is made perfectly buttery with @landolakesktchn butter with olive oil and sea salt, and swirled with pesto. The wild mushrooms and chickpeas are slowly roasted together with fresh thyme and garlic. Put the two together and you have the perfect dinner to slowly ease into the cooler days ahead. Recipe on HBH – grab the link in my profile.. #sponsored
  • French Onion and Apple Grilled Cheese. I mean? Apples and gouda? Caramelized onions and crispy prosciutto? Fresh thyme and sage? It’s all of the best fall ingredients in a cheesy sandwich. Maybe a little unusual, but something about the savory onions and the sweet apples, together with cheese really works. It’s kind of sweet, kind of savory, and kind of really good. Promise. Recipe up on HBH today - linked in profile. #eeeeeats #f52grams  #grilledcheese
