Small Pie Crust

Who’s baking pies this weekend? If you raised your (virtual) hand, then I’m with you. I never thought that I’d be interested in making a pie that serves only two people, but that’s changed. When it’s just me and my husband, a small pie is the perfect dessert for 2. I’ve been making my mother-in-law’s pie crust recipe for over 12 years and it’s never failed me. I love it so much that I simply cut it in half to accommodate the smaller version that I’m sharing today. You only need four ingredients and I promise you it’s super simple …

Chicken Parmesan

Guys, I’m obsessed with this chicken parmesan. I love chicken parmesan but I’ve never made it. Are you surprised? I know my mom was when I told her this other day.

Slow Cooker Taco Chicken Chili

Chili season is in full swing and I’ve got a new recipe for you. I don’t use a slow cooker often and by that I mean that we use it for one recipe, pea soup. So I’m trying to use it more for other recipes, which is where this taco chicken chili recipes comes in. The best part about this chili is that you don’t have to touch raw chicken. You put it, along with all of the other ingredients into your slow cooker and let it do the dirty work. I love that this chili option has chicken instead …

Cornbread (Redux)

I’ve been craving cornbread so here we are making my favorite recipe. I originally shared this cornbread recipe back in 2013. Side note, how is it that I’ve been blogging over 7 years?! Anyway. It’s still my favorite cornbread recipe and I wanted to share it again because it’s that good. Plus, it’s a bonus for me to have updated pictures. It’s my favorite cornbread because it’s moist but a tad crumbly (as cornbread should be). There is a hint of sweetness in this cornbread, which I love.  Some people don’t like the sugar because they feel like they are …

White Bread

If you like bread, here’s one for you. I fell in love with this bread the first time that my husband made it. It’s so fluffy and delicious and it’s absolutely better than anything you would buy from the store. Of course white bread can be used in all sorts of ways, toasted for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch, a side for dinner, a snack, sliced for an appetizer board, you name it. Lately, we’ve been enjoying grilled cheese sandwiches. Probably because they are a good companion to soups and chilis. How do you make grilled cheese? My husband spreads some …
