Sugar and Spice…

Out of everything I make during the holidays, this has got to be my favorite. I’m a lover of spices and can appreciate the assault on the senses they can do. I think that’s a big reason why I love holiday baking. I get to abuse things like cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin pie spice, and no one gives me any lip about it. And you know I’m a cinnamon freak so this time of year …

If Milk Could Dream…

Still the first week of the month and I already feel like I’m slacking. I have quite a few holiday goodies to throw your way so I really should get on the ball here. I mean, here I am, a cookie fanatic missing out on the cookie making season. If this blog has done anything consistently well, it’s making me ashamed of myself.  What? I said cookie and you stopped caring about everything else I was saying? …

Thanksgiving… Piece of Cake!

The holidays make me do crazy things. Shopping at midnight to save $30 is one of those things. Yeah, that’s not as hardcore as I used to be… Breaking night on the same night every year, standing in line for 7 or 8 hours in the bitter cold… Florida is always hot, their winters are fairly mild for the most part. But that one night that I spend outside is always in the 40’s. But …

Pumpkin Spiced Mini Doughnut Muffin Hole Thingies

So it would seem as if every food blog you go to has these little balls of goodness. Even saw them on TV the other day being sold in a bakery somewhere. The popularity of them is both attracting and discouraging. I don’t really want to be like other blogs out there, but at the same time, man these things are addicting. So easy to make and easy to eat. I swear you’ll have like …

Johnny Pumpkin Seed

I know I said I was going to do a few sweet posts in a row. But you can’t blame me for going back on that for this one post. More than likely, there’s only a few days left before you’ll come across the opportunity to make these. Not to mention the fact that they’re downright addicting. And to be honest, I did try to make a sweet version, but I failed. And I failed …

One Cookie To Rule The Fall

I cannot begin to describe the shame I feel I have brought myself. My disappointment Is the size of Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! Why? You know why. Don’t sit there and act like you haven’t been shaking your head at me for weeks. Look at me, here, with this food blog, and I have not posted one thing… not one thing about fall yet. It’s practically November and here I am talking to you about garlic bread …

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Spaghetti

  I’ve mentioned before that we have a fairly repetitive rotation of meals we eat throughout the week. Some things get retired or get put on the back burner, so to speak, when we get tired of it. The beloved Taco Tuesday has seen this fate once or twice. But there is one meal in particular that is so popular in this house I don’t think it will ever be skipped or taken out of the …

Déjà Garlic Bread

I would like to take this time to apologize. Why am I apologizing? Well, one, because I feel like I’m neglecting all 9 of you who regularly check out my blog. I’ve been crazy busy with moving and I’m missing out on primo fall-time recipe opportunities. So for that, I’m deeply sorry. And two, because I’m posting about Garlic Bread again. I know, I know. All I’ve been posting about lately is garlic and bread, and I …

The Garlic of the Gods

I’ve been in this garlicy, bready kind of mood lately, have you noticed? Nah, I bet you didn’t. But if you did, you’re probably wondering what I have up my sleeve next. Go ahead, guess.. (If you guessed bread, I’ll give you another chance to guess garlic….) Yes! Garlic! Good guess. There has to be hundreds of things you can do with garlic, but today I’m just focusing on roasting it. If you’ve never roasted …
