Blueberry Brown Sugar Bread

Blueberry bread on a cutting board next to a knife. Bread has two slices cut.

Brown sugar adds a twist to a classic blueberry bread, giving the edges a nice caramelized crunch. This bread is great for breakfast, brunch, or a snack. This recipe is great for using frozen blueberries. I took the blueberries right from the freezer and didn’t even thaw them. If you’re looking for more blueberry recipes,

Soy Glazed Salmon {Sheet Pan Meal}

Salmon on a plate with asparagus and white rice

It’s Lent, which means it’s time for a lot more fish recipes around here. I’m a big seafood fan anyway, but I end up making more seafood recipes than usual during Lent. I made this the other night on Ash Wednesday. It’s a a quick and easy weeknight dinner, and it only requires one pan.

Spice Cupcakes with Apple Pie Filling and Cinnamon Buttercream

cupcake

I needed a dessert other than pie to make for Thanksgiving. I was originally going to make a spice cake, but I opted for cupcakes because they’re easier to distribute (and grab and go). This recipe uses a boxed spice cake mix as the base to save a few steps, but I disregard all of

A local magazine was having a cookie recipe contest, so of course I wanted to enter! It’s an unusually chilly summer day today, and it’s raining, so I think I came up with these because they remind me of fall. (Update: I was runner-up in the cookie contest!)

Charleston Chews

Charleston Chews

Charleston chews are one of my favorite things. No, not the candy. This is like a brown sugar blondie thing and it’s delicious! I always wait to have them when I’m in Charleston because I’ve been afraid of being disappointed in my own version. I don’t need to be afraid of that anymore! They weren’t

Granola Bars

I had a bag of granola that she was snacking on, but once I was about halfway through it was too crumbly to eat unless I ate it with milk like a cereal. I thought it would be good to make into some granola bars. The recipe in this post is one I made a

Ma’s Ham

This is my mother-in-law’s recipe. I’m really not a big ham eater, but I really, really like this ham. Make sure you save the leftovers (including the leftover sauce, drippings, and carcass) to make ham and bean soup! I’ll be posting the ham and bean soup recipe separately. Ingredients 1 whole ham Whole cloves (optional
