Sea Salt & Dark Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Clusters

Sea Salt & Dark Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Clusters

Because we haven’t had enough sweets yet, right? Right! I’d be a little embarrassed to call this a recipe if it wasn’t the holidays. It’s all of 4 ingredients. And they’re all in the title, because I have no restraint with words. But they’re such […]

Wine, Cheese, Bread, Happiness

Wine, Cheese, Bread, Happiness

Before we dive all the way into my very favorite season – cooking season – I’m celebrating my friends with everything good in life (see: title). Christmas is my time with family, Thanksgiving is my time with friends. No matter how long it’s been – we spread […]

Raspberry-Jalapeño Jam Spread

Raspberry-Jalapeño Jam Spread

Currently obsessing over this too-easy spread that I’ve made twice in the past few days! Like so many good things this is almost too simple: simmering jalapenos in raspberry jam and spreading it over cream cheese and devouring with pretzels. Good old-fashioned pretzel sticks work just fine, […]

Stuffed Portabellas with Bacon, Bleu Cheese, & Sundried Tomatoes

Stuffed Portabellas with Bacon, Bleu Cheese, & Sundried Tomatoes

These stuffed baby portabella caps are going to be the biggest appetizer hit ever at your next dinner party! Or more accurately, these are so good that they’ll make you want to throw a dinner party, but still totally eat them all by yourself. Bacon, […]

Stuffed Pizza Waffles

Stuffed Pizza Waffles

Ohhhhh friends. We’re making buttermilk biscuit waffles. And we’re stuffing them with loads of melty, gooey mozzarella and spicy pepperoni. And dipping them in marinara and stuffing them all in our faces. Yes please & you’re welcome.

Cucumber Sushi Rollups

Cucumber Sushi Rollups

I’m a twenty-something supposedly-adult and sometimes I still want to be tricked into eating my vegetables. Anyone else? Salads just get boring when I know I could be eating a juicy loaded-up burger. Any excuse to make veggies more fun is a win for me! […]

Basil Goat Cheese Tomato Bites

Basil Goat Cheese Tomato Bites

If you love goat cheese, this is the appetizer for you! Juicy cherry tomatoes stuffed with creamy cheese and fresh peppery basil is the best light summertime snack. These are perfect to bring along for a big Fourth of July spread this weekend. This holiday, by the way, totally […]

Baked Corn Dog Bites

Baked Corn Dog Bites

Kids will love these poppable corn dog bites and let’s be honest, so will adults! Light, fluffy cornbread coating around juicy hot dog slices are a great snack after playing outside or to bring to the neighborhood block party. Alongside a big squirt of ketchup – or […]

Sausage Cheddar Jalapeño Kolache

Sausage Cheddar Jalapeño Kolache

Kirk got me hooked on kolache last year when he brought a dozen home from Cowboy Donuts. After six hours in a freezing truck, they were still tender and soft and I think we finished the entire box within two days. These sweet, buttery rolls […]

Gorgonzola Walnut Stuffed Dates

Gorgonzola Walnut Stuffed Dates

Someone please come over. I have an entire plate of these gorgonzola-stuffed dates with toasted walnuts and I just. can’t. stop. Sweet dates and salty melted cheese and toasted walnuts are too good to resist. The best appetizers look fancy but can be tossed together […]
