Apple Pie Ice Cream

Who wouldn't want this tomorrow after gorging themselves with turkey? Freshly baked, warm apple pie topped with APPLE PIE ICE CREAM!! Oh my goodness, please make this ....more

BBQ Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

If you're going to make your Pumpkin Pie from scratch for Thanksgiving, definitely roast your pumpkin seeds instead of throwing them away. It's super simple to do and they're a healthy snack for the whole family. You can roast them plain with a dash of salt, or spruce up the ingredients to make a BBQ version like I did here ....more

Pumpkin Nutella Cookie Bars

Want to switch up your Thanksgiving dessert a little this year? You should make something that still includes pumpkin…but also includes NUTELLA!! Sounds like a winner, doesn't it? ...more

Brown Sugar Glazed Baby Carrots

Bradley used to hate, hate, HATE carrots, but the past few weeks he has been really into them. Therefore, I've been more than determined to include them in most things I make for dinner before the phase passes. So far I've put them in Vegetable Soup, an easy pasta with vegetables and our favorite slow cooker meal, but I also wanted to make them as a side dish ....more

Apple Cinnamon Fruit Leather

Fruit roll-ups used to be one of my favorite treats as a child. I can still hear that thin layer of plastic being peeled away from the sticky leathery treat. But with all the preservatives and sugar buried in the ingredients list, it's one of the last things I want to give Bradley ....more

There was no doubt in my mind that for this month's SRC post I would be delivering something Thanksgiving-worthy.

I really only needed two ingredients (plus a few pantry essential items) and it was really easy to put together ....more

Tater Tot Breakfast Bake

Chris had some friends over the other weekend and told me that he was craving a breakfast that had tater tots in it (since, let's be honest, tater tots make everything better). The first thing that came to my head was a play off of my Sausage and Hash Brown Bake and a random recipe I had seen floating around on Pinterest. This bake was seriously mouthwatering and all the guys devoured it ....more

Healthy Granola with Chia Seeds and Dried Fruit

I love how nutrient-packed chia seeds are, so I've been on a hunt for new recipes to make using them. Homemade granola was an obvious...more

Buttermilk Blueberry Breakfast Cake

Sometimes I just want a sweet breakfast that I can enjoy with a steaming cup of coffee. Nothing special or spectacular, just something to do the trick. A simple cake like this is exactly what I need on those mornings--a moist cake with pops of blueberries and a slightly sweet crust ....more

Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches

Bradley loves getting a lot of attention, and I'm more than willing to give him all the attention he needs (especially before the new baby comes). That makes it more than essential to have dinners on hand that I can either make in advance or that take little prep time. Slow cooker meals are ideal since I can throw everything in the crockpot and then have the rest of the day to devote to my attention-seeking son....more
