Baked Spinach Dip

Besides cucumber dip, this Baked Spinach Dip is my absolute favorite dip/appetizer EVER. And it’s obviously healthy since cream cheese, bacon, mayo, cheddar cheese, spinach is such a prominent ingredient. Duh. How could you go wrong with that list of ingredients?

Pumpkin Pie Cashews

I’m pretty sure these Pumpkin Pie Cashews are the best mixed nuts I have ever made (although Burnt Sugar Almonds are pretty darn good). Pumpkin pie is one of my favorite desserts so I was immediately drawn to this recipe. It originally called for a mixture of almonds and pecans but I had a big bag of cashews I

Oven Tacos

I have never really been a big fan of ground beef tacos. I rarely had them as a kid because my mom makes a mean shredded beef that is incredibly easy so that was almost always what filled our taco shells. I surprisingly haven’t shared that recipe, I need to get on that. Although I’m

Crock Pot Applesauce

Remember our apple picking adventure? Well, we came home with LOTS of apples for the sole purpose of homemade applesauce for that boy of mine. It’s one of his favorite snacks and I love making it for him rather than buying it. It’s so simple to throw together (whether in the crock pot or on

Buffalo Chicken English Muffin Pizza

For some reason, English muffin pizza’s seem nostalgic to me. I don’t particularly remember eating them a lot as a kid but they still bring me back. Anyway, we eat pizza a lot around here….Sunday night has been deemed pizza night for quite a few years now. So, needless to say, I am always trying
