Chocolate Chip Bread

This is one of those bread recipes that Jesse gets cravings for every so often. It’s kind of like a chocolate chip cookie, but better for you since it’s a bread and not a cookie. 🙂 It’s actually really easy to make and there are a lot of times that I don’t measure the chocolate […]

Peanut Butter Surprise Bread

This is a very peanut buttery bread. Jesse remarked that it was really rich. The original recipe called for Reese peanut butter cups, but I changed them to the Reese pieces because it added more peanut butter than was needed. In fact, I’m tempted to take out the Reese pieces and just use chocolate chips. […]

Roasted Chicken Calzones

I actually picked this recipe up from my friend Nikki. So to start it off, I’m going to give you her words… These are easy to make (even in bulk) and freeze well. To freeze, I typically bake them 3/4 of the way and then freeze them on the tray Once froze, I transfer them […]

French Fries

Jesse wanted French fries tonight, so we looked up a couple different recipes and came up with our own. It’s not that hard once we figured out what the basics were and they came out pretty well. The first attempt at making these, we baked them at 400 degrees F. This did not work. They […]

Pork ‘N’ Veggie Packets

Jesse wanted to grill today and we’re starting to get bored with chicken, so we decided to do pork. While looking for some grillable pork recipes, I stumbled across this one over at Allrecipes. The recipe was created by Andrea Bolden, but I’m going to make a few changes. The one thing I initially missed […]

Rocky Road Brownies

Guess what I found….a recipe to make brownies from scratch and I had all the ingredients on hand. This is good news and bad news. The good news: I can make brownies whenever I want. I always have these ingredients on hand at home (well, minus the marshmallows and nuts). The bad news: I can […]

York Peppermint Brownies

I love anything mint, so what better brownie to make than one that incorporated york peppermint patties? The first thing I will say about this is you need to refrigerate the York peppermint patties at least 24 hours before making this. Cutting them up was a little interesting and they all stuck together so it […]

Bananas ‘N’ Cream Bundt Cake

I finally bought a funnel cake pan and I couldn’t wait to use it. When an opportunity came up to use it, I couldn’t pass it up. This recipe came from Oma Rollison over at Allrecipes. The cake actually came out pretty good and I like how easy it was to flip out of the […]
