Quick Tomato Soup

Bowl of tomato soup with croutons

A quick and easy homemade classic that can be made entirely with ingredients from your pantry. Unlike its canned counterpart, it has way less sodium and no added sugars. I’ve finally jumped on the “What can I make entirely from my pantry during COVID-19 isolation?” bandwagon. I’ll still continue posting normal recipes, but you’ve probably

Homemade English Muffin Bread

An easy bread to make at home that’s great for breakfast, snacking, or toasted sandwiches. I eat English muffins pretty much every morning, but I ran out and didn’t want to go to the store. I broke out a James Beard bread cookbook my mom gave me a few years ago. I hoped to find

Chocolate White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Scrumptious chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips are a fun departure from the traditional chocolate chip cookie. I bought the white chocolate chips this winter to make something with cranberries that I never actually ended up making, and I’m afraid to look at how old the cocoa I used was – but these turned out

Cranberry & Gouda Bites

Round crescent rolls topped with gouda cheese and cranberry sauce, on a plate

This was one of the appetizers I made last weekend when I was hosting my horseback riding club’s holiday party. I made the cranberry sauce the night before. This would also be a good use for leftover cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving. The cranberry sauce is the perfect combination of sweet and tart, and pairs nicely

Parmesan & Garlic Crispy Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I recently asked my social media followers for some recipe requests. One of the requests was for more vegetable recipes. I make veggies a good bit, but I’m not so great at remembering to write down the recipes so I remember to blog them. I’ll try to get better at that! I was out to

Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry muffins

My boyfriend had some blueberries that needed to be used, so of course I said I’d take them to make blueberry muffins. I’m kind of addicted to these. I might even be eating one right now before bed. My boyfriend said it’s the best blueberry muffin he’s had in a long time (he’s probably a

I was going to make these on the grill, but didn’t really plan properly to allow them enough time to start cooking ahead of everything else, so in the oven they went. We had these with grilled strip steak and grilled asparagus. I used the leftovers for breakfast potatoes – just added some onion and
