Toasted Pecan Pie with Homemade Whipped Cream

Homemade whipped cream is THE BOMB. If you’ve never made it or tried it, YOU NEED TO. It is so so easy, and once you try it you will never want those cans or tubs again! I make mine sweetened, because, sugar. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I could literally just eat it by itself with a spoon. And in full discretion, I’ve totally done that before. It’s okay, this is a judge-free environment.

Crockpot Bison Tacos Recipe

I’m all about making things as easy as possible when it comes to dinner. By the end of the day, the last thing I usually want to do is make a complicated recipe that says it will only take 30 minutes but in reality, takes 60+ minutes. Ain’t no mama got time for that.

The Best Pumpkin Bread Recipe (Seriously)

It's super moist with the perfect dense-but-still-fluffy texture, and it’s full of pumpkin spice goodness. I’m a huge believer that the “spice” in pumpkin spice needs to not just be detectable in a recipe, but the shining star. This won’t let you down.

Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies

To brown butter, first, you simply put the unwrapped butter in your pot over medium-low heat. Using a whisk, move the butter around so it melts evenly. It’ll start getting bubbly and then foamy. After a minute or so the foam will start to settle down. Keep whisking and watching, because after a few more minutes you’ll start to see little browned pieces at the bottom of the pan. I leave it on for maybe 10-20 more seconds, whisking constantly, and then pull it off the heat. You’ll want to do this pretty quickly though because it can go from browned to burnt real quick. Pour it into a glass or metal bowl and let cool a little while you prepare the dry ingredients.

White Chocolate Cranberry Energy Bites

They’re yummy, healthy, easy to take on the go, and crazy easy to make. I first came across them when I was nursing our youngest; the recipe I first made were called “lactation bites” because the ingredients in them (specifically the oats, flaxseed and brewer’s yeast) can help boost nursing mamas milk supply. Energy bites aren’t just for nursing mamas anymore though, they’ve gone fully mainstream now.

Pumpkin Cheesecake, Cali Style

Fall is here! I love fall, it’s one of my favorite times of the year. I love the crisp, cooler air. I love the cozier clothes; jeans, long sleeved shirts, boots. I love the warm, homey smells of cinnamon, cloves, bergamot, cider. And I LOOOOOOVE the tastes of fall. Pumpkin. Cinnamon. Nutmeg. Sweet potato. Brown sugar. Pecans. Caramel. Honeycrisp apples. Yummmm. I think fall foods are some of the absolute best. Thanksgiving feast anyone? Yum yum yum!
