Homemade Cheddar Bunny Crackers

I do realize the last three posts I’ve written are carb laden.  I don’t know what to say other than this baby in my belly loves carbs! P’s current favorite snack is cheese crackers, so what better snack to bake together than his favorite one?  My toddler is a great (ok, somewhat messy and wild) …

Homemade Pretzels

October has been one gross and sweaty month; thanks Tennessee, I guess we are skipping Fall this year.  Even though last week’s temps creeped towards 90°F with 92% humidity, we can still crank up the a/c, put on a turtleneck and make Fall food!  These homemade pretzels will knock the socks off of anyone’s Oktoberfest …

Buttery Pretzel Bites

Is it just me, or is everyone in a bigger rush than ever this year?  It seemed like we hadn’t even turned the Halloween corner into November and I was getting Christmas catalogues and seeing lawns already decorated with Rudolph and Santa.  I went to the mall at the beginning of this month and it …

Indian Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Ask my husband and he’ll disappointedly tell you I am NOT a fan of Halloween.  He LOVES Halloween.  He came home from school today and immediately put on his halloween skeleton shirt.  I blame my mother for my dislike of all things Halloweenish.  I do not like the scary movies, haunted houses, face-painting, and creepy …

Date & Walnut Energy Bars

I saw a recipe on The Kitchn’s site for energy bars and was intrigued.  You never know what they might be putting in those energy bars on the shelves at the store.  I’m not saying I wouldn’t eat an energy bar instead of my own arm if I was starving and stuck in a snowstorm, but it’s …

Berries in Sweet Yogurt

This recipe is inspired by my six-year-old nephew, Matthew.  Last week Matthew and I were enjoying my sister’s homemade waffles for breakfast, with fresh strawberry slices on the side.  He proceeded to show me how dipping your fresh strawberries in syrup made them taste better.  Duh!  All my life I’ve never thought to put maple syrup on berries. …

Buffalo Hot Wings

Even though March is technically over and sadly both Michigan basketball teams lost (sorry Mike Smith), I’m still going forward with a recipe post of my favorite buffalo hot wings!  Wings are perfect fare for watching any type of sport, specifically tomorrow’s Monday night college basketball championship game.  The Hubs taught me you can throw …

Ricotta Stuffed Figs

I looooooove figs.  LOVE THEM.  Sweet, sticky, with tiny seeds that pop when you bite down, figs are among the richest plant sources of calcium and fiber.  Pair them with fresh ricotta cheese, honey and pistachios and you’ve got a delicious, quick snack, or a pretty appetizer for guests.  This recipe is awesome because minimal …

Awesome Roasted Rosemary Holiday Nuts

This is a recipe that is not only easy, but it will also make your house smell like awesome holidays.  Michele, you ask, what do awesome holidays smell like?  THESE NUTS!!!  I’m telling you, this intoxicating scent is better than the roasted pecans in the every mall – mainly because you made them yourself.  Feel …
