Baked Hummus-Crusted Lemon Chicken

1

Fall is my favorite season… what’s yours? However, try as I might to get into the mug-of-cider-cozy-sweaters-pumpkin spice spirit of things, summer is very much still present here in Austin. The toasty temps outside remind me of this every minute! Specifically in the morning,...

Crispy Loaded Hasselback Potato Bites

1

Happy October, friends! The falling leaves, warm cider and cinnamon-spiced goodies make this month my undeniable favorite… not to mention my upcoming birthday. With a this little lady to help me celebrate, I have a feeling this will be one to remember. But first, before discussing cake and...

Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

The whole business of stuffing vegetables with delicious goodness really appeals to me. You can dirty them up with any sticky, cheesy, salty indulgences you like, because at the end of the day… you’re eating your vegetables. Like the good little cook you are....

Easy Super Soft Cinnamon Rolls

The sun outside may still be scorching away, but inside I’ve created a cozy fall oasis! I’ve got my chunky knit sweaters, pumpkin candles burning, and the oven churning out delicious, warm goodies. And all it takes is a thermostat set to keep my house...

It’s been a different summer for us this year. Austin is a very outdoorsy city, and with a new baby, that presents some challenges. The days we would have been swimming the springs and slurping cold cocktails were replaced with just trying to keep cool indoors...

3-Ingredient Root Beer BBQ Pulled Pork

Barbecue is kind of a religion in the South. Some prefer their meat deity slathered in sloppy sauce, smoked and served with heaps of potato salad. Some think a slow, low cook in the oven and a crispy finish on the grill gets the job...

Stovetop Spinach Basil Pesto Mac and Cheese

1

Here in Austin, we’ve had some cooler days in the past week. That’s meant more long walks, fuzzy slippers and new spins on my favorite fall comfort foods. However, I see September as an in-between month as far as summer and fall inspired cooking. You can really...

Honey Mustard Pretzel Chicken Bites

1

As a child, I always looked forward to the nights when my mom cooked foods I didn’t like. That’s right, didn’t like. Why? It meant my dinner was basically a free-for-all. I could eat whatever I wanted – cereal, peanut butter and jelly, pizza –...

Incredible 3-Ingredient Nutella Brownies

1

If there’s one indulgence I love, it’s chocolate. Me + chocolate = foreva. During my pregnancy, it was BAD. And, strangely, my perpetual craving still isn’t easily satisfied. So, I’ve been trying lots of different recipes lately. (Which is my way of saying, eating...

Grilled Pesto Chicken and Tomato Skewers

The weather may be cooling where you are (and boy, am I jealous), but here in Austin we’re still in the middle of what feels like an eternal summer. I’m starting to long for breezy walks and chunky sweaters, hot apple cider and crisp orange...
