So as you all have probably realized – I am obsessed with peanut butter. I found this recipe online and the great thing about it is that it is 21 Day Fix approved so it’s a great treat for those trying to watch what they are eating but still craving something savory. I decided to whip up this treat for my husband and I while we were stuck at home during the Blizzard of 2016! We ended up getting over 3 feet of snow!  This bark was super easy to make and only took a few minutes

Lasagna Roll Ups!

So my husband and I were craving some lasagna but making a whole large pan of lasagna for just two people always seems like a silly idea so in search of something more in the realm of “dinner for two” we found Lasagna Roll Ups!

You are going to need 1 package of lasagna noodles, 1 pound mozzarella cheese, 1 (15ounce) container of ricotta cheese, 1 pound of ground beef, 1 pound of parmesan cheese, 1 egg, 2 handfuls of parsley, 1 small onion, 3 garlic cloves,  1 (16oz) can tomato puree, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, Italian seasoning.

First thing you want to do is chop the onion and garlic into really small pieces. Then grab a large sauté pan and heat olive oil and then sauté the onion and garlic. Then add the beef to the pan and season with salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and italian seasoning. (I also strayed from the recipe I found and added some garlive salt and onion powder for a little extra flavor). Then cook till brown and drain the meat mixture. Place meat back in the pan and add the tomato puree.

I strayed again from the recipe online and choose to add a little water (about ½ cup) to the meat sauce to make it a little less thick. I also added a splash of heavy cream to give it a creamy tomato sauce vibe. Let this simmer while you cook everything else. (click read more below to get the rest of the recipe)

Inspired by a recent trip to breakfast with my father, I decided to try my hand at homemade sausage gravy and biscuits.  Amazing how breakfast places can get this wrong, as it is such a humble easy to make dish, but in the days mass food production and pre-packaged goods it happens!  On this particular breakfast date with my dad the gravy was rubbery and lacking in flavor and the biscuits were tough and easily identifiable as straight from a can.  For my diner slam down I turned to Bon Appetit


I chose sausage with sage flavoring to jazz things up a bit, and was also recommended to next time try a 50/50 mix of sage and hot flavors together.  Amazing that with a few basic ingredients you can create a lavish breakfast feast!

Twas a chilly fall eve and I needed a dairy/soy free dessert pronto.  I turned to my trusty Bon Appetit magazine and came across this lovely recipe! As I was in a frantic hurry (my sister and brother in-law were due to arrive in 1 hour!), I cut some corners and was pleased to find out that this recipe is sturdy, no fuss, and perfect for dessert in a flash.  I will note that this recipe did call for 2 Tbsp of butter, which I omitted completely from the recipe, which seemed to work just fine.

The recipe in it’s entirety can be found here http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/spiced-pear-upside-down-cake ...

On a recent trip with the Trigger Agency team to North Carolina, I ordered a slice of Hummingbird cake, and boy was I in for a treat!  I know, the name is quite strange, but this dessert is incredible.  I was interested in the history, and some quick research led me to Wikipedia: “The cake has been a tradition in Southern cuisine since the mid 20th century.  The first known publication of the recipe, as written by L.H. Wiggin, was in the February 1978 issue of Southern Living. The cake won the Favorite Cake Award later that same year at the Kentucky State Fair.” It is also Southern Living magazine’s most requested recipe in the magazine’s history.

I decided to attempt this creation myself.  I followed this recipe from Southern Living.  It was surprisingly quick and painless!  Be sure your bananas are ripe enough as this will contribute to the sweetness of the cake.  I started by combining all the dry ingredients....
