Super Bowl Stuffed Spinach Sausage Bread

  SUPER BOWL is coming! We are two weeks away from football food bliss, beer, and fabulous TV commercials. I'm sure somewhere in there you can sneak in a little actual football, but for me its all about the chips and dip marathon and hilarious commercials. Obviously not a surprise to you all!   And seriously, these commercials better be good this year. Like Force Volkswagon good, or a nip slip from Bruno Mars at Halftime, because if I am missing my Sunday night Downton … [Read more...]

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Mmm...mmm...I LOVE pumpkin bread. And if you're reading this post I know you're right there with me. There are exactly 12 zillion billion recipes for pumpkin bread on the internet and I literally cannot stop myself from clicking on any and every recipe I find.   I would be the world's worst lab rat. I'd be that one stuck in the cheese maze for life ¬†with absolutely zero conditioning skills. They would dangle a piece of cheese in front of a trap door and I would literally take … [Read more...]

Skinny Chocolate Chip Pumpkin-Banana Bread

  The pumpkin plant in my garden is getting SO BIG. Crazy big. The kind of big that ate my thyme plant... my parsley plant...and my green pepper... and I don't think its going to stop until it's finished off my cherry tomatoes.   A good mom would rein in her bullying child, but I'm totally playing favorites and I am way too excited to have my own pumpkins for this fall to do anything about it!   Look at them! I've never even successfully grown a basil … [Read more...]

It's Monday everyone...uh oh... And it's not just any Monday. Its Daylight Savings Monday. Its when whatever powers at be decided that getting up early wasn't nearly a big enough struggle and that we should now set our clocks an hour back so that we no longer wake up to sunshine and birds chirping, but pitch black and crickets. And the moon. I go to the bed with the moon. I do not wake up with the moon. But I guess now we get dinner's with sunsets and evening commutes with sunshine so I … [Read more...]

“Light” Monkey Bread

My family is obsessed with monkey bread. Forget birthday cakes, my brothers ask for these yummy warm doughy globs dripping in cinnamon sugar. Every year. Same with Christmas morning breakfast... Father's Day... Valentine's Day.... I'm not kidding, in high school my younger brother wrote a paper on monkey bread. Needless to say, when I told them I was trying a not only 'new' monkey bread recipe, but a 'lighter' monkey bread recipe... there was an uproar in my house. How could you perfect the … [Read more...]

Tomato and Parmesan Focaccia with Caramelized Onions

So I have a new life calling. And its not baking cakes or saving the world. Its getting tickets to the Ellen Degeneres Show. Do you know how to do this? Because I think its actually impossible. The website told me to 'click' on the date I wanted to see the show on. So I did. Simple right? Wrong. You can't click on any day. The little cursor turns into a hand when you wave it over the calendar... taunting you... pretending its on your side...but then refuses to click on a date. But its ok. … [Read more...]
