Friday Things

It’s been a very busy couple of weeks at work!  So busy that I’ve had to skip lunch more times than I’d like and have been forced into snacking most days.  While I’m a natural grazer, it would be nice to have something other than dry cereal, pretzels or a small bag of nuts.  I’ve…

Turkey Taco Pie

I think I was either in college or just out of college when I was introduced to taco pie.  A close friend of mine whipped it up one night and I thought it as a revelation. One because it was a cheap filling meal for a college student who could still feel like they made…

Bacon Cheddar and Chive Waffles

I’ve heard that many great recipes start out as mistakes.  I like to think that my bacon cheddar and chive waffle recipe falls into this category.  Originally it was meant to be a biscuit recipe, but in my haste, I added twice the amount of buttermilk than was necessary.  I didn’t notice this until I…

Sour Cream Doughnuts

  After spending the past couple of weeks baking donuts, I found myself craving a good old-fashioned sour cream fried donut.  I found a fantastic recipe that makes perfect crispy on the outside, dense and moist on the inside sour cream donut.  My favorite sour cream donut was the one my parents and I would…

Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

I think the third time was the charm for my baked donut experiment.  I’m in love with these cinnamon sugar donuts!  I’ve finally gotten used to the fact that the donuts are not going to be golden brown on both sides, so that was another major mental accomplishment! These donuts are by far the closest…

Apple Cider Donuts with Caramel Apple Glaze

These apple cider donuts with caramel apple glaze is my second attempt at using my new donut pan.  I’ve found that filling these pans is like filling a cupcake pan.  Too much batter and it overflows and too little leaves you with something that looks like a teething biscuit. I really enjoyed this donut.  It…

Funfetti Donuts

I finally bought my first donut pan. I’ve seen so many great recipes for baked donuts that I needed to try it for myself, so get ready for a lot of donut posts!!! I decided to start with the funfetti donut.  I was pretty excited to try out the new pan, so what better way…

Little Goat Bakery

My time in Chicago was short and I didn’t have time to actually eat at the diner for breakfast (dag!), so I decided to pop in the bakery to grab a little pastry and coffee on my way out of town.  The diner looked awesome and smelled great by the way.   I grabbed a…

Cornbread Brisket Grilled Cheese

I hope you will forgive me as I continue to go on about my love of grilled cheese sandwiches.  A while ago, I stumbled across a patty melt recipe made with cornbread and beef brisket.  My mouth watered every time I saw the recipe, but my only thought was “when am I ever going to…

Oatmeal Sandwich Cookie with Marshmallow Cream Filling

Typically when I make oatmeal cookies, I use whole rolled oats and lots of them.  They give a nice hearty texture.  At least, that’s what my friends say.  While I love oatmeal cookies, I always dreamed of them not being so, well, hearty. It is for this reason why I was in awe of the…

Friday Things

I’m so excited!  Today I head to Philly to see one of my favorite bands: Kraftwerk (google them).  This will also be my 2nd visit ever to Philly so I plan on sampling lots of food.  In honor of my mini trip I’m going to share a few recipes that unique to Philly and other…
