There’s nothing like taking leftovers and turning them into soup to make your family (or even yourself) feel like they’re getting something new. That’s what I did here with this Chipotle Chicken Noodle Soup recipe. I love a good chicken noodle

Cheater Chicken n Dumplings Soup

I’ve never made Chicken n Dumplins soup at home before. This recipe was an amalgamation of what I had on hand and reminiscing flavors of dishes I’ve eaten once before. While this may be called “Cheater Chicken n Dumplins Soup” the only place we’re cheating on is the dumplings and replacing them with gnocchi. The

The Frozen Frenchie

This delightful gin and tonic cocktail is a take on a Frenchie, a cocktail developed by LA-based bartender Somer Perez. We loved the name and decided for summertime it needed a little remix to help you cool off with friends for a long summer of outdoor entertaining. This frozen gin cocktail is a delightful play

Gluten Free Lemon Poppyseed Cake

I’m not here to convince you that gluten-free is better than gluten-full. I don’t think food technology is there yet where a croissant can be replicated with gluten-free flour but if I had to choose whether to eat this cake with gluten or gluten-free flour, I would go gluten-free flour all the way. This gluten

Cafe du Monde Inspired Beignet Recipe

It was a well-loved recipe book with little recipe clippings and notes scribbled in the corners by the previous owner. I flipped through to cocktails and stumbled upon what was called a “hot buttered bourbon”. Reading the recipe

Southern Bourbon Punch for the Holidays

When it comes to punch, I typically stick to sangrias and gin punches, but when my friends at Old Dominick asked me to try their Bourbon I decided it was finally time to lean into this southern staple.

Classic Apple Pie with Grizzly Cookware

I loathe making pie crust but I love making pie. I’m too busy perfecting the filling to want to worry about a rubbery crust or not enough flake in each bite. Also, I’m somewhat stressing out that I didn’t get the proper pan and wondering if the pie is going to stick to the bottom

Fluffy, Simple Cinnamon Roll Recipe

When I last made cinnamon rolls on here, I was in a creative foodie exploration phase and overcomplicated the recipe by 200 fold. This past weekend in Cashiers NC, the weather was chilly, the leaves were dropping and it just seemed like my only option was to measure some flour and make the fluffiest cinnamon
