Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I will never understand red velvet cake. It is not chocolatey enough to be a chocolate cake. It does not taste like anything else. It tastes like red. Cake should have a clear flavor. Clearly I missed a Southern culture lesson.


Homemade Oreos

Yes, this is real. Yes, they taste Oreo-ish. Yes, Chris will devour them. Yes, Dutch cocoa is essential. Yes, they are worth the effort.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

These are my dad’s absolute favorite. Something about macadamia nuts cooking activates my peanut-spidey-sense, but once these are cool, even I think they’re irresistible.

Cake Batter Pudding Cookies

These are the mother of all sugar cookies. Also, they need sprinkles in the batter. Or Funfetti cake mix. Just trust me on this.

Stuffed Spaghetti Squash Italiano

Chris is not a big fan of spaghetti squash. The food thing about this recipe is that I can make it on spaghetti squash for me, and just regular spaghetti for him. Everyone is happy!

Cinnamon Roll Bread Pudding

Does this even need a description? It’s a bread pudding that tastes like the gooey center of a cinnamon roll. Just make it already.

Blueberry Velvet Cake

My husband loves red velvet cake. I love blueberries and do not understand red velvet cake. Thus this delicious monstrosity.

Marinara Sauce

Keep this sauce in the freezer to whip out for quick weeknight pasta. Great for pizza, pasta, dipping breadsticks, and anything else your marinara-loving heart desires.

Bacon Jalapeno Popper Quiche

Skillet Chicken Parmesan

A one pan meal that’s perfect for cold days or days when you need that gooey, warm, luscious carb hit. Add ricotta and bacon or sausage for extra points.
