Oven Baked Seasoned Steak Fries

Everyone knows that even though all bar food is good, the true star of every basket is the fries. Fries are a classic side served with every burger and sandwich, and perfect fries are always seasoned just right – because there definitely IS such a thing as too much salt, and nobody enjoys a potatoContinue reading “Oven Baked Seasoned Steak Fries”

Sugar Swirled Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

I will be the first to admit that I have a sweet tooth, especially when it comes to breakfast foods. I have always been partial to donuts, muffins, and sugary baked breakfast foods. While banana bread is typically made, one of my favorite breakfast treats is pumpkin bread.  I’m one of those people that lovesContinue reading “Sugar Swirled Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread”

Creamy Feta Greek Chicken Wrap

It’s always a good idea to have some easy recipes in your cookbook arsenal, and Creamy Feta Greek Chicken Wraps fall directly into the easy category while being super filling and healthy!

Sausage and Egg Breakfast Burritos

I’m going to be completely honest here, yesterday was the first day that I had ever tried a breakfast burrito, but that’s all it took. I’m officially hooked.

Every autumn we take a trip down to Lodi, Wisconsin to trek through theContinue reading “Sausage and Egg Breakfast Burritos”

Cheater’s Twice Baked Potatoes

One of my husband’s favorite sides to have with a meal is a twice baked potato; unfortunately, while they are delicious and not overly challenging to make, twice baked potatoes take an abundance of time to make. Every time that I make twice baked potatoes, Cole comments and asks why we don’t have them more.Continue reading “Cheater’s Twice Baked Potatoes”

Spiced Cheddar Cheese Sauce

This week’s featured recipe was created completely by accident. My husband was having a guy’s night, and as part of the usual routine I was going to make snacks. My goal that evening was to make a homemade nacho cheese dip. Unfortunately as I went about creating my dip, I quickly realized the consistency wasContinue reading “Spiced Cheddar Cheese Sauce”

Italian Chicken Meatballs

Now that the school year has started, my recipes have to change focus. While the weekends are still reserved for recipes with longer cooking times, overall, my attention turns to convenience meals during the weekdays. Oftentimes people get confused when they hear the words “convenience cooking.” They think that quick and easy meals cannot possiblyContinue reading “Italian Chicken Meatballs”
