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...

Pepperoni Pizza Crescent Rollups

PepperoniPizzaCresentRollups (1)

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

1

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...

Avocado Lime Rice

1

Though I love to serve zesty Mexican favorites like tacos and enchiladas, I’m always stumped about what to dish up on the side. Salad? Eh. Potatoes? Pass. Rice? Yea, but booorrrinnngg. I was looking for a way to jazz up rice that didn’t involve a lot of...

3-Ingredient Creamy Tomato Angel Hair Pasta

1

When you think of comfort, what comes to mind? To me, it’s a tall swirl of saucy, scrumptious pasta piled on a plate and sprinkled with Parmesan. A little basil to brighten up the color and flavor doesn’t hurt, either. Even better if I have...

Lemon Panna Cotta with Fresh Berries

1

Where has this dessert been all my life?! Simple as it may seem, I think my new favorite summer treat has been decided. And, since we’re still in full-fledged, triple-digit-temps summer mode here in Texas, I think I’ll help myself to a few more. To beat...
