Pumpkin Yogurt Granola Parfaits

Pumpkin Yogurt Granola Parfaits

Hi there! This is going to be a quick one because I am about to head out trick or treating with what I like to refer to as my nuggets – more commonly known to people as nieces and nephew!

Fire Roasted Fajitas

There is a thing I used to see on the Food Network and in a few cookbooks that intimidated me. That thing was roasting full peppers, peeling off the skins, to create delicious, fresh roasted red peppers. I was pretty certain there was no way […]

The Best Chicken Noodle Soup

The Best Chicken Noodle Soup

If you’ve read a few of my posts, you know I’m often trying to make healthier, yet husband approved versions of dishes my hubs loves. JTW will basically drink can after can of Campbell’s Chicken Noodle. Don’t get me wrong, there is a time and a place for some good ol fashioned canned soup, but it does not even BEGIN to touch the deliciousness of this homemade version.

If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em on the pumpkin spice game. I will make no claims that I am not #basic in many ways, but a basic quality that I am lacking is a love of pumpkin spice lattes. I will try one every year in hopes that my taste buds have morphed and it will taste like something other than nasty processed syrup, but it has yet to happen. Now, PUMPKIN, pumpkin things I do like. There is a big difference in pumpkin and pumpkin spice. If you don’t believe me, try tasting pumpkin coffee vs a pumpkin spice latte. Major difference.

Can you tell I’ve been in a cozy comfort food mood lately!? This one was actually by request of my hubs. He loves SUPER basic food, no frills about it, which often pains my foodie soul. BUT, sometimes I can take it as a challenge. […]
