Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Red Curry, Butternut Squash, and Leek Soup

It’s getting cooler at night. Sweaters and sweatshirts are making their way out of closets. Comfort food is a must when I have a day off to relax. That amazing feeling of snuggling under a blanket while watching a movie or enjoying a fire outside while eating a bowl of deliciousness. Deliciousness known as soup. […]

Apple Pie Smoothie

Fall is here and the cooler weather is on its way! Since we usually do not get cooler weather here in the south, until November (or later), I like to make seasonal drinks and foods just to put me in the fall spirit. I love apples. They taste so crisp and fresh in the fall. […]

This recipe makes 48 egg bites […]

In my house, I don’t do so awesome with that forethought and planning piece very often, so they’re frequently a snack or a dessert that I can […]

But sometimes something comes up and it’s worth the extra work. Maybe you need a different anniversary dinner, or you’re celebrating a big milestone or just need something […]
