These are the best chewy oatmeal cookies!

The BEST chewy oatmeal cookies, from

This recipe was developed in partnership with Go Bold With Butter.

They’re not fancy. They’re not even pretty. They’re just basic drop cookies filled with oats and a hint of cinnamon. Dessert possibly couldn’t get any less sophisticated.

But sometimes simple is best, and these oatmeal cookies really are the best. They’re chewy, buttery, and I dare you to stop at just one. >> More

Apple Oven Pancake with Apple Cider Syrup |

When I first discovered the dutch baby / puffy oven pancake / whatever you want to call it, it was a huge aha moment. They’re so wonderfully easy! Just a few minutes of prep with a handful of basic ingredients, and then it works its magic in the oven while you brew a pot of coffee or take a shower.

And when you pull it out of the oven it’s puffed high, golden, and begging to be devoured. >> More

Fall is here! Fall is here! Fall is here!

And I can’t believe it, but I’m actually pretty excited. I’d been holding onto summer like something fierce, but I think I’m finally ready to embrace it all— changing leaves, chilly weather, and all things cinnamon.

Last weekend we took a drive up into the mountains to see if the leaves had turned yet, and they had! It made me so happy. You know something else that makes me happy? These white chocolate macadamia nut snickerdoodle cookie bars. >> More

Loaded Baked Potato Sheet Pan Dinner! from

One pan meals are all the rage right now, and my pinterest feed is full of dinners that can be made in just one skillet, pot, or sheet pan. As a busy mom of 2 busy boys, I totally get it. Who has time to dirty (and clean) a bunch of dishes and babysit a lot of stuff on the stove or in the oven? On most nights, not me.

And so I’m enthusiastically jumping on this bandwagon. Here’s to easy, no-fuss weeknight cooking! >> More

All flavors of buttermilk ranch dressing, in a light and tender sandwich bread! Great for sandwiches, your morning toast, and more!

This recipe was developed in partnership with Red Star Yeast.

I’ve been on a bread baking hiatus all summer, as it turns out. It wasn’t intentional, but with the exception of grilled pizza I just haven’t been in the mood.

Now it’s mid September! And chilly weather and shorter days are just around the corner, along with my cravings for soups, casseroles and hot chocolate. And I want to bake aaaaallll the bread. >> More
