Chipotle Braised Chicken Nachos. Slow cooked chicken, braised in cider beer, chipotle peppers, and enchilada sauce, then layered with tortilla chips, topped with two cheeses, baked in the oven until melty and perfect, and finished with avocado salsa. TOO GOOD! Equally as great for entertaining as they are for a fun dinner at home. No […]

Simplifying dinner tonight with these Apple Butter and Sage Pork Chops. This easy recipe is all things fall.

If there was ever a recipe that screams fall it’s these apple cider doughnuts. Homemade doughnuts made with mulled cider, cinnamon, apple butter, and maple. Fried to perfection (because if you’re going to eat a doughnut, eat a real doughnut), and rolled in cinnamon spice. There’s nothing not to love about these sweet doughnuts. Best […]

Fall Harvest Honeycrisp Apple and Kale Salad. All the best produce that fall has to offer combined into one big beautiful salad. I could not love this combo of shredded kale, sweet honeycrisp apples, pomegranate, pumpkin seeds, and crispy prosciutto more. Tossed with a caramelized shallot vinaigrette, this salad is sure to become a new […]

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.

Super simple, pretty healthy...ish, and so dang delicious. Shared the recipe on HBH - link in profile.
