Honey Corn Muffins

Honey Corn Muffins

There are two styles of cornbread; southern cornbread isn’t sweet and pairs well with most barbecue southern dishes – chili, ribs, pulled pork, etc. Northern style cornbread is sweeter and lighter. Maybe it’s because I’m a PA girl or maybe just that I like things sweet, but these honey corn muffins, most definitely “northern”,...

Lemon Bars

Lemon Bars

I enjoy lemon desserts – not as much as chocolate but they have their place. When I was in my more experimental baking phase (which also happened to be my childless phase, how do you figure), I used to love making lemon curd. I’d spread some on a warm biscuit with freshly whipped cream...

Chicken and Herb White Pizza

Chicken and Herb White Pizza

Easy Apple Turnovers

“Make-ahead and Freeze” Breakfast Sandwiches

“Make-ahead and Freeze” Breakfast Sandwiches

This was one of my earliest blog posts and is by far my most popular. Lately I’ve been sifting through earlier work, checking recipes and re-taking photos. This recipe got lost in the shuffle of my day-to-day, as my husband went gluten free and my babies weren’t old enough to enjoy breakfast sandwiches but...
