Barbecue Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Barbecue Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Make these now. I could go on and on about how good they are (as I take typing breaks so I can scoop more into my mouth) but we are in a MAJOR rush as my gym child care is opening in 20 minutes and if we are stuck in the house with our...

Best Pizza Dough

Best Pizza Dough

I’m always on the lookout for new recipes, new ideas. I have yet to pick up a Parenting magazine at the gym, as there’s usually some cooking magazine I’d rather peruse (sorry, Tessa). There are several recipes I’ve made, however, that cease my search for that particular food. Case and point, this pizza dough....

Pumpkin Almond Cheesecake

Pumpkin Almond Cheesecake

In level-two cooking we did a cake unit (yes, a cake unit in a high school class – high school kids have it good). They always wanted to do a cheesecake, because, well, cheesecake is the bomb. I’d explain that it wouldn’t work in the time period – you can’t eat a cheesecake until...

Apple-Cheddar Turkey Burgers

Apple-Cheddar Turkey Burgers

Burgers? I know – it’s October, but this is not the kind of burger you’re likely picturing. This is an INSIDE burger, and it makes you look forward to Thanksgiving! Sharp cheese, sweet cranberries, tangy mustard, tart apple, and tender, scrumptious turkey come together to make for one fun weeknight meal. Serve with roasted...

Goodness Greens Soup

Goodness Greens Soup

I feel like as soon as the temp. drops below 60, my daughter’s nose starts running. It’s gross. I find myself wiping snot off her face and onto my clothes just like I saw moms do when I was younger and swore I’d never replicate. Awesome.

Make-Ahead (and Freeze) PB and J

Make-Ahead (and Freeze) PB and J

OK, more of an idea than a recipe, and you might already know about this. I do this every two weeks and always keep a stack in my freezer, since my husband loves peanut butter and jelly sammies and eats them as snacks. PS, if we ever find out that peanut butter is toxic,...

Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Have been wanting to try this bread for months now – the original torn out recipe from Cooking Light was totally crumpled. SO glad I held on to it, though, as it was scrumptious and perfect for the miserably cold Sunday that it was yesterday. Technically it was dangerous more than it was “perfect”...

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Glaze

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Glaze

I think it’s funny that we only use pumpkin in the fall. It’s like a nod to the original settlers who could only eat pumpkin when they harvested it in the autumn months. The thing is, people, we can find perfectly wonderful canned pumpkin every single day of the year at our local grocery...
