Turkey Cranberry Flatbread

The timing of this post isn’t the best since Thanksgiving was a few months ago, but I’m trying to get all of the recipes I had on Facebook onto here. There are only so many sandwiches you can eat from Thanksgiving leftovers before getting tired of them. My inspiration was this Tastefully Simple recipe for

Nana’s Carrot Cake

I can’t take credit for this gorgeous carrot cake that occasionally appears on my header image. My spouse (at the time) made that using a family recipe. This recipe is on the thinnest piece of paper ever. It was clearly typed on a typewriter, but I have no idea how the paper didn’t disintegrate when

Fruitcake Cookies

We used to make fruitcake cookies every Christmas when I was little. My mom has come to visit the last several years for Christmas, and we’ve made them again every time. They’re just so good! If you hate fruitcake, don’t assume you’ll hate these. They really don’t taste like an actual fruitcake. The main similarity with

Buffalo Chicken Crescent Spirals

I needed to make dinner one night, and I’d forgotten to take anything out. Oops. Strangely, I had buffalo chicken dip left over from a party. (This was strange because my buffalo chicken dip usually gets scarfed down and I end up wishing I’d made more.) Anyway, back to the dinner thing. I always keep

Red Wine Onion Soup

Whenever I eat a dish I love at a restaurant, I love the challenge of trying to make it home. There’s a local restaurant near us that has this amazing red wine onion soup. This soup is so good that someone I know who used to be a french onion soup hater orders it every time

Snow Day Chili-Stew

We had a blizzard last year, and I wanted to make something warm for us to eat while taking breaks from shoveling feet of snow. I’ll be making this again for sure during the next mega-snow! I call it a chili-stew because it has some elements of a chili and other elements of a stew.

Pumpkin Bread Mini-Loaves

I made these to give to coworkers for Halloween and they were a huge hit! I used canned pumpkin the first time, and homemade puree the next time I made them. If you use homemade puree, you’ll need to make sure it’s packed into the measuring cup. Ingredients  2 cups bread flour ½ tsp salt

Filet Mignon

Mmmmm filet mignon. Pretty much one of my favorite foods, so it’s even better that they’re quick and reasonably easy to make. Update: See this post for a better description of the process to cook these steaks. While these turned out well, I think my pan could have been hotter from the beginning. I would’ve
