Chipotle Braised Chicken Nachos.

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 […]

Great any night of the […]

Mulled Spiced Apple Cider Doughnuts.

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.

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 […]

  • Creamy (garlic butter) Sun-Dried Tomato Tuscan Chicken and Orzo...tittle pretty much tells you all you need to know. This is kind of like your favorite Italian chicken and pasta dinner, but all made in one skillet and in under an hour too. It’s creamy, a little garlicky, lemony, and as close to perfect as it gets. Tip? Add crusty bread for scooping up that cream sauce. It’s very good. Recipe up on HBH - linked in profile. #f52grams #easyrecipes
  • Cream Cheese Swirled Chai Gingerbread Cake. It’s that time of year when nothing is better than baking all day long…enter this cake. It’s heavy on the ginger, made buttery with @landolakesktchn Extra Creamy Butter, swirled with cream cheese, just a little decadent, and just about as close to perfect as it gets. It’s generously drizzled with a buttery lemon glaze for a perfectly sweet and spiced gingerbread cake. It’s delicious. Sharing the recipe on HBH today - link in profile.  #sponsored
  • Caramelized Mushroom and Kale Pizza. Monday night is better with pizza. Truth. This is my favorite when the weather is cold. It's simple, but GOOD. Fresh herbs, balsamic mushrooms, kale, and 2 cheeses (because more cheese is always better). Every last bite is delicious. And there is kale...so it's almost like eating a salad. All about that balance. Recipe on HBH - linked in profile.  #f52grams #buzzfeast #imsomartha
  • 30 Minute Coq au Vin Chicken Meatballs. One of best recipes make for these cold December nights. It feels fancy…and cozy, but is ready in less than an hour and is the easiest to put together. The coq au vin sauce is KEY. It’s made with whole lot of red wine and it is loved by everyone…which is why I am making this for the fam over the holidays. Just one thing? Don’t skip the browned butter mashed potatoes. Everything is better with a side of creamy mashers. ENJOY. … … 1 1/4 pounds ground chicken or turkey 1 egg 1/3 cup Panko bread crumbs 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese kosher salt and black pepper 2-3 slices thick-cut bacon, chopped 1 yellow onion, chopped 4 cloves garlic, minced or grated 4 carrots, chopped 2 cups cremini mushrooms, sliced 2 tbs tomato paste 1 1/2 cups dry red wine 1 cup low sodium chicken broth 2 bay leaves 4 thyme sprigs Add the chicken, egg, bread crumbs, parmesan, and a pinch each of salt and pepper to a bowl.

Add the tomato paste. Add the wine, chicken broth, bay leaves, and thyme. Season with salt and pepper. Bring the sauce to a boil, cook 10 minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly.
