Easy Blackened Chicken Recipe

I posted a picture of my husband’s favorite chicken on Instagram earlier, and my friend Christy requested the recipe. Happy to post it – it’s so easy even this vegetarian can do it! My husband used to stop by the grocery store on his way home from work on Fridays and buy one of their […]

Behold: Mashed Potato Pizza

If I had to list my top five favorite foods, pizza and mashed potatoes would definitely be in there. I could eat one or both every day and be happy. Today I was making pizza for the kids for lunch, and I had a revelation: why not take my leftover mashed potatoes from earlier in […]

Most Of You Are Using Cupcake Liners Wrong

The other day my friend Shannan posted this revelation on Facebook: “So all my life, I have been leaving the paper liners inside the foil cupcake wrappers when I bake. Guess what, y’all? YOU AREN’T SUPPOSED TO!” I chuckled to myself. Of course you’re supposed to remove them. It says so right there on the […]

How To Spatchcock A Chicken

There are two great reasons to spatchcock a chicken. One, you get to say the word “spatchcock.” It’s really fun to say. Two, you can cook a whole chicken in half an hour. The word spatchcock, which is supposedly of Irish origin, basically means to butterfly by taking the backbone out. I used this recipe, […]

My Easy White Sandwich Bread Recipe, Without The Hard Ingredients

A couple weeks ago I posted my own easy recipe for white bread. And I stand by it: it’s incredibly easy to assemble and bake. However, the difficulty was in two ingredients that non-bakers might not have on hand: instant yeast, and baker’s dry milk. I say, buy those ingredients. They’ll be very useful in […]

Baking Beginner Sandwich Bread

  [A few readers have suggested that the recipe would be even easier if it didn’t use a couple of ingredients that non-bakers would never have on hand; I’ve revised the recipe to use more common ingredients, while still keeping it as easy as possible!] I love fresh bread. I love the smell, I love […]

Food And Friends

Today I had the huge privilege of going to my favorite kind of work event. It wasn’t about a brand, although two great brands – KitchenAid and Glad – were both sponsors. No, today was more personal: a chance to get together with friends to celebrate one of our own, a blogger and all-around wonderful […]

Granola For Non-Health Nuts

I love granola. I could eat it all day. I have eaten it all day, every time I make it. I like it plain, I like it mixed into vanilla yogurt, I like it with milk, I like it sprinkled on peanut butter and banana. But what I don’t like are most granola recipes. For […]

Christmas cookie Tree centerpiece

A couple weeks ago I saw this video of Gail Dosik, of One Tough Cookie, making a Christmas tree out of cookies. I was totally inspired.   I immediately started searching Amazon for graduated cookie cutters and found a set of star-shaped ones from Wilton. I never make a holiday centerpiece. If we have one, […]
