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.Read More
My kids ate kale and mushrooms and asked for more more more. Which is a good way to make any recipe a regular in this house. Sweet Potato + Sausage Pot Pie, y'all! And it's freezer friendly too!Read More
Well I just finished my Whole30, my very first one. And let's be real - it wasn't easy. But it also wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be. And while I'm glad to be off of it, for now, I'm also really glad I did it. AndRead More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
The traditional summer recipe revamped to be the best. Seriously - so simple, so easy, and sure to please.Read More
So bold. So tasty. So easy. So cold. So brew. It's homemade Cold Brew Coffee. And it's on the blog.Read More
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.Read More
In this case, a delicious Avocado-Lime salsa that's just to die for and so quick to whip up, you might even have time to do a little mid-prep clean up. Or pour yourself a glass of vino... your call.Read More
Somehow short weeks are always the busiest. Though really, every week is busy around here, but we managed some pretty tasty meals with a mix of tried-and-true recipes, a couple new ones, and quick and easy stuff to fill in the gaps.Read More
It's the beginning of a new era, y'all. NEW ERA. New numbering system. New naming system. Mark this day in history as the first day that Sara Dear brought you a entire post full of food-tography. Only in 2016. #NotaHipster #IJustLikeFood #AndPhotographingItRead More
So here's the deal. Our normal Weekly Eats isn't going to be here this week. Or ever again.
Except I'm not sorry.
Because Meal Planning posts are about to get a whole lot better, y'all.Read More
Both because of our trip, and so that I could spend time with the hubs on Father's Day, my usual Sunday task of meal planning was left for this morning. I'm sorry for getting this up late, but it's up nonetheless!
So Meals for this week! Are you ready? There's some tasty stuff going on here!Read More
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.Read More
Here is our meal plan for the week of June 13 - June 19!Read More
...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.Read More
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!Read More
