At some point while all 4 of us were enjoying this dessert, Matthew Darling looked at me and said with such genuine meaning, "This may be the best dessert you've ever made". And he didn't even get to indulge in the homemade caramel sauce!Read More
The hostesses who remain most well loved in the hearts of those they served do so because they really invested in the people, not in their decor, not in their flatware, not in the wine they served or the steaks they grilled. It's all about the relationships.Read More
If you think making bread is too complicated for you, make this one! Y'all already know about my love affair with my crockpot. Matthew darling tells everyone I'm a good cook, but without that sweet cooker, I would be lost!Read More
This meal was admittedly a little out of my comfort zone. Had I not enjoyed it at a friend's house first, I probably would've shied away from a meal that included coconut milk and cauliflower. I'm so glad I didn't! This dish is decadent, favorable, and 100% satisfying. It would be a great one to make when having company over for the holidays!Read More
Just when I feel like maybe I've hit a rut in the kitchen, BAM! Spicy Lemon Basil Chicken! It's easy, it's inexpensive, and it's decadent! That lemon/basil/garlic combo is a real winner y'all.Read More
I am looking forward to hitting reset in January and getting back to our normal clean eating routine, but I have to share one last holiday treat with you all first! My sweet mother-in-law served us this cranberry side dish at Thanksgiving and I've been looking for a good excuse to make it ever since.Read More
You may have seen these or even had them with chocolate on the bottom, but we never made them that way. When you leave the chocolate off, you get a gorgeous golden color all around and a deeply satisfying toffee taste. They are so simple to make and I've never met someone who didn't enjoy them. However, I've also never met someone who loved them as much as Grandmom and I do!
I think I like the cookies so much because there are so many memories of her wrapped up in them.
Last week was Matthew's birthday week so I filled it with all of his favorite foods.
Such a sacrifice, I know! ;)
Now there's not a lot of football left, but the holidays are upon us and either of these dishes would be great to take to whatever get-together you're attending!
