Cinnamon Chip Scones

Cinnamon Chip Scones

Many of you have probably been wondering what would be my first post on my re-branded blog.  :)  I honestly didn’t need to think too hard about it, because I knew right away that I wanted to resurface a favorite recipe that needed some updating.  Years ago, I developed this scone recipe and realized that […]

New Orleans Beignets

8464071018_9358c91389_z

Here it is, just in time for Mardi Gras (aka Fat Tuesday).  What is that snowy, pillowy puff of deliciousness you ask?  You’re looking at Louisiana’s state doughnut, the beignet! They are just as scrumptious as they look, too. You won’t believe me when I tell you that this is one of the easiest doughs […]

Semi-Homemade Chicken Pot Pie

8447241605_8ed0ca35be_z

Ok, so really the only thing about this pot pie that is not homemade is the crust.  Store-bought refrigerated pie crust is the way to go with this one.  (I love the Pillsbury brand.)  But wait!  Don’t abandon me yet.  Just because there is no cream of whatever soup involved, it is still very easy […]

Nutella No-Bake Cookies

Do you ever have problems getting your chocolate no-bake cookies to set right?  In the last year, my mom has had a really difficult time getting her usual recipe to harden correctly.  Either they don’t harden at all and are a sloppy mess, or they become too crunchy.  She used to make them all of […]

Ham and Cheese Soft Pretzel Sliders

Can you feel it in the air?  The Super Bowl is right around the corner!  Only a few more days!  By now, you probably know where you’ll be watching the game, but do you know what you’ll be eating?  Or, better yet, what dish will you be making to impress your friends? Because we all […]

Baked Southwestern Chile Dip

8421666691_05170dc26a_z

Super Bowl Sunday (aka this year The Brother Bowl, or The HarBowl) is less than a week away!  Yipeeee!  It’s one of our favorite “holidays.”  (Are we the only ones who consider it a holiday?)  :)  Ben grew up near Baltimore, so I don’t have to tell you who we are rooting for, although we’re […]

The Best Shredded Chicken For Your Chicken Dishes + Homemade Chicken Broth

8409616412_11a71f61b6_z

How many of you have a pile of recipes that use shredded cooked chicken as the main ingredient?  <Raising my hand very high here.>  :)  And, how many of you run to the store to buy a rotisserie chicken when you need shredded chicken in a pinch?  <Raising hand, again.> A friend shared her mother’s […]

Buttery Beer Bread

8384639340_b305916e7a_z

Let me start this post off by telling you how hungry I am right now after looking at these bread photos again.  Now I’ll go ahead and admit that I’m always hungry lately.  I know it has to do with this growing baby inside of me, but I really am tired of being so hungry […]

Creamy Crock Pot Macaroni and Cheese

8365832590_2577876d0d_z

Ladies and gentlemen, I am back!  Posting LIVE from my new house! Eeeek!!! After living in campus housing for exactly one year, Ben and I bought a house and moved into it this weekend.  I keep talking about it on Instagram and Twitter to the point where it’s probably obnoxious to my followers, but I’m […]

No-Bake Butterscotch Cornflake Cookies – Easy as 1-2-3!

8266374932_5d4ac67252_z

Have you heard of The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap?  Organized by the lovely foodies, Lindsay and Julie, this event brings food bloggers from all over together to exchange new cookie recipes.  Did we all travel and get together in one place, you ask?  Nope!  That’s the beauty of it!  Lindsay and Julie assigned all […]

Muddy Buddies | Puppy Chow

8228009403_d925e72b37_z

You already know and love this one.  We’ve been enjoying this for years upon years.  But, should that keep me from photographing it now and adding it to my blog recipe files?  I think not! Actually, I just want to know if you call them Muddy Buddies or Puppy Chow.  I do both.  Haven’t been […]

Apple Pie Dip with Cinnamon Chips

8203525600_24b3a5a28a_z

Everyone loves dips.  Usually, the favorites are ones that are filled with some sort of cheesy goodness with salty crackers or chips.  Am I right?  But, folks, you should change things up a bit this holiday season and serve your family and friends this apple pie dip.  Don’t get me wrong, I love my cheesy […]

Classic Green Bean Almondine

8187302296_64160e98ee_z

Last year for Thanksgiving, I made a from-scratch version of everyone’s favorite green bean casserole.  This year, a few of you requested a classic Green Bean Almondine recipe, which I thought was a fantastic idea because it’s much easier, a whole lot faster, and is cooked on the stove top! This veggie dish certainly doesn’t […]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cake Bars

8183720665_8604112821_z

Grab a fork or use your fingers for this one!  These cakey bars can go either way, but just a warning, you won’t want only one, especially if you eat them WARM.  I loved the pumpkin chocolate combination and shared them with a group of friends last weekend who also gave them a big thumbs […]

Crock Pot Corn Pudding

8180086537_a000af88fb_z

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, so this week and the beginning of next, I plan to post some new recipes you can whip up for your holiday guests.  One request I’ve received recently is an easy crock pot recipe so your oven can be freed up for the other million dishes you are making that day.  […]

Saturday Seeds – Plus a Pregnancy Update

8172624839_d4fbc90494_z

Happy Saturday everyone!  A while ago, I was updating you weekly with my personal life stories and links to my favorite finds, and titled it “Penny’s Weekend Garnish”.  Many of you have requested that I return this periodical update, which flatters me that you really like me! ;)  So, I’ve decided to return with this […]

10-Cup Cookies

8092239415_f39531282a

Are you like me?  Do you have a hard time memorizing recipes? Well this one, my friends, might boost your self esteem in that area.  It’s called 10-cup cookies for a reason.  Why?  Because there are 10 ingredients measured at 1 cup.  All you need to do is remember what those 10 ingredients are!  Okay, […]

My Favorite Blueberry Muffins

8021818945_b37f62964b

Joy named these Brown Butter Blueberry Muffins, because the butter in this recipe is first quickly browned on the stove top.  I didn’t include this in my post title only because I didn’t want those of you unfamiliar with brown butter to hurriedly turn away.  To make brown butter, all you need to do is […]

Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread

7472351204_600bc1d147

As I type this, there are five guys hanging out in front of our TV watching football and munching on this, and these and these.  I love it because it means fall is (almost) here.  And, I love it even more because God graced us with cooler temperatures (for Mississippi) so that it actually felt […]

Homemade Kettle Corn

7947164028_55aabd8b84

You know what is weird?  I didn’t like kettle corn until I moved down here to the south.  It’s not a southern staple, from what I know.  According to Wikipedia (you know, the online encyclopedia that is oh-so-unreliable) it originated in the north.  But, even though I grew up in the north, I never had […]
