Salted Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

My goodness do I love these cookies. These are an old favorite - a recipe I've actually posted before. But since those photos were old and I've tweaked the recipe just a bit, and since some of you are new 'round these parts, I thought I'd share these legendary cookies once again.

Butter + Butternut

This dish is covered in a super-oh-my-goodness-couldn't-be-easier brown butter sauce, topped with cheese, and filled with delicious Fall flavors. And its use of only two pans (one in the oven, one on the stove) means less clean up for you.

The Best Stovetop Popcorn

This popcorn beats the stuff in a bag every single time, takes the same amount of time to make, and is wayyy easier on the wallet. (Not to mention it's a lot better for you, too). And I promise, besides maybe the kernels, you have everything you already need in your kitchen. No fancy air poppers required.

Pumpkin Granola

Enter Pumpkin Granola. It's delicious, so very easy to make, takes only a few ingredients, and it goes with everything from yogurt, to milk, as a finger food from a jar, or even atop ice cream. This is family favorite in our house and has made an appearance for many an Autumn season.

What We Ate No. 3

I was in kind of a fool slump this past week. Didn't really feel like cooking much, just wanted easy dinners that didn't require too much prep or too much clean-up. We ended up with some good staples, a nice at-home Steak and Bake, and a leftovers Breakfast-for-dinner that ended up being my favorite meal of the week.

Big Breakfast made Easy with Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloths

But to make up for it, we tend to go a little bigger for our Saturday breakfasts. And it's so fun. We take the morning slow, we all chip in to make breakfast, music playing in the kitchen, Saturday morning cartoons in the living room for the boys, all in our pajamas, just enjoying some family time and relax a little after yet another busy week. It's lovely to spend the time together... except... I still don't want the mess. I want the big meal. Not the big mess.

20 Minute Homemade Tomato Sauce

...but the problem is that even if you find it on sale, it's typically loaded with sugar and "natural ingredients" and other stuff. Plus, a good deal on jarred sauce is still pretty expensive, like $2+ a jar. So today I'm sharing my recipe for my favorite 20-minute homemade red sauce. I can make a whole batch for less than $5 and one batch lasts us 3+ meals. I usually make a batch, use what I need, then freeze the rest.  It's easy, it's inexpensive, it's really simple, and it tastes even better than the jarred stuff. really.

We're finally back to kind of a normal week this week! It's been like a month of three day weekends, guests, birthdays, holidays... just a lot of crazy! And while I loved every minute of it, I think I'm glad to get back to a little bit of normal. So here's our meal plan for this week!
