Homemade English Muffin Bread

English muffin bread in a towel with 3 slices cut off

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

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,

All-Purpose Homemade Dough

Dough in a mixing bowl

This dough is one of the most versatile I’ve ever used. It can be used for rolls, pizza crust, stromboli or calzone crust, pot pies, and more. My boyfriend is the one who originally started to experiment with this recipe. He says it’s the closest thing he’s been able to make to butter rolls his

Warm Onion & Cheddar Dip

I was making braised short rib risotto on Christmas, but wanted to put out some snacks beforehand. I had a Costco cheese flight that everyone has been raving about (yes, it was amazing), along with some salami and cherry honey. I thought a warm dip would be nice to serve, too, but this was a

Eggnog Cupcakes With Cinnamon & Nutmeg Cream Cheese Frosting

Three eggnog cupcakes on a wooden plate

So I had this eggnog liqueur left over from the party I had last weekend. I wanted to use it up, and I’m not really one to drink eggnog, so I wanted to come up with a dessert concoction of some kind. Because I’m not the biggest eggnog fan, I wanted to do something I

Lemon Cookies With Vanilla Glaze

Lemon cookies

When I first started to make these lemon cookies the other day, I used a base that was similar to how I make sugar cookies. I wanted the dough to be rolled out like sugar cookies, but the dough didn’t shape up to make that happen. The lemon juice and the baking soda gives these

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

Southern Deviled Egg Potato Salad

Southern Deviled Egg Potato Salad

This recipe combines two of my favorite foods – deviled eggs and potato salad! I brought this to my horseback riding club’s monthly potluck last night, and there was hardly any left. The dressing is creamy and tangy, and the ingredients provide a nice contrast of textures. The dressing uses mayo, but I’d also really

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Buffalo chicken dip is one of my favorite things to make for a party. I have a few variations I make, including this one. I think this version I made is my favorite so far. I made it for the Super Bowl last weekend. My boyfriend isn’t really into buffalo sauce, but he couldn’t stop

Italian Chicken & Spinach Dip

Italian chicken & spinach dip

One of my friends hosted a potluck brunch last weekend. This was originally supposed to be a filling for crescent roll spirals similar to these buffalo chicken spirals I made before. That turned out to be a disaster. I spread the filling onto the crescent roll dough, rolled it up. and it didn’t hold up
