Since I’ve discovered these amazing eggs, I’ve started imagining all the great eggnog recipes I could make, recipes that will remind me of the eggnog of my childhood.
Robb thinks I talk to much. Because, as a point of fact, I do. I’m giving myself and everyone else a break today, and bringing you a post completely devoid of words. The photos in this post tell the whole story.
I recently found myself saddled with ripe bananas, when the project I had intended to use them for fell through. The memory of this chocolate banana bread discussion came flooding back to me. And if I’m being completely honest, the thought of how this bread would look on this cutting board is the real reason I ended up making it.
Sometimes, on Halloween, a mom needs 10 minutes to herself, so she doesn’t lose her cool. We all know what that looks like, and it ain’t pretty. It might be the scariest part of Halloween, actually.
Sometimes I put my huge deck-building-problem-solving brains to work on other problems, like how can I turn my favorite scone recipe of all time into a savory scone? Turns out it couldn’t really be easier. Just add some shredded cheddar and bacon bits, and you’re golden.
I swear the kids are hungrier during the school year than the summer. They come home from school, and the first word out of their mouths is not “Hi, Mom!”, it’s “What’s there to eat?”
I’ll tell you the truth… I’m not a big fan of making bread. All the kneading and waiting for it to rise and hoping your yeast is still good is just too much for me.
But I will do it on occasion when the recipe is right. And folks, this recipe is RIGHT.
I’m not going to lie, canning is not my all-time favorite activity, but on the other hand, apricot jam is SO delicious! Plus, store bought jam is expensive, and not homemade, making it far less appealing.
I love this dip served warm, all the melted cheese and spices make it so comforting and delicious. I figured I needed a pretzel rod with it, something that could hold up to the strength of the mustard dip.
I love horseradish. I know it’s not for everyone, I get that, but Oh. My. Gosh. the stuff is soooo good. Oh, I love dill too. I’m such a glutton, I love everything.
My talented cousin told me in a Facebook post about her delicious grilled PB&J sandwiches, with bananas and chocolate chips. I mean, let’s face it, the idea is brilliant.
I have created one of the most unusual and unplanned (and, by the way, not that messy) recipes I have ever done. Even the recipe card below will be full of estimates and no measurements whatsoever. And Robb was right, it suited me just fine.
I spotted lemon flavored marshmallows at the grocery store around Easter, and I’ve had them rolling around in my head ever since then. I finally came up with a great idea (namely, this popcorn) and when I went back to the store to get them, they were conspicuously missing. Dang those seasonal ingredients!
