Pumpkin Raisin Bread

Pumpkin Raisin Bread

My name is Lacey and I have a pumpkin addiction. It started out so innocently -- Dustin brought home a fresh pie pumpkin to roast one day. That turned into some fresh pumpkin puree for Hunter and this pumpkin raisin bread. Then, we got more pumpkins.  And I roasted [...]

Pie Crust Recipe

My Favorite Pie Crust Recipe

In several of my posts, you may have noticed I refer to my favorite pie crust recipe. I have come to depend on this wonderful little dough recipe, as it has yet to disappoint me. Seriously. And, when things never disappoint […]

Healthy Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Healthy Chocolate Zucchini Bread

I forget how ridiculously easy this bread is to make. Like so easy. Usually, when I think about making bread, I first think of the calories. Then, I think about the mess it will make on the counter. Then, I think about the kneading and the waiting to rise. At that point, I move on to [...]

Homemade Croutons

Homemade Croutons

**Warning:** after reading this post and trying out this recipe, you will likely never go back to buying store-bought croutons again. In fact, you will probably find it hard to believe you [...]


How to Make a Sourdough Starter

Dustin and I experimented with creating our own sourdough starter from scratch. We've always been intrigued by making sourdough bread. And, when I say intrigued, I mean we have talked about it for years but have never done anything about it. We ran across this sourdough starter recipe from Pinch My Salt and figured we'd [...]


Banana Bread

Did you know that February 23rd (last Thursday) was National Banana Bread Day? I didn't either. Since we moved, Dustin has been asking me to make some banana bread. So, once I found out about National Banana Bread Day, I knew what I had to do. Funny thing is -- I didn't really know when [...]

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

I said in my recent post on How To Make Pumpkin Puree that I'd share my Pumpkin Spice Muffin recipe, so here it is! Especially this time of year, I love a good pumpkin muffin. For me, there's something very special about the combination of pumpkin, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice.  (Um...and a latte at [...]


Hoagie Rolls

So, remember how I wanted to start a Pizza and Wine Bar? Well...I still do...but, as usual, I have changed my mind.  A little.  Again. My new hope and dream is to start a diner. Not a greasy, old 50's style diner.  A modern American diner. My diner. Dustin and I have always thought about [...]

Easy Buttermilk Biscuits

I hate dry and crumbly biscuits. I mean, carbs aside, what's more satisfying than a moist, fluffy, warm biscuit? Mmm.  Smothered in butter. And honey.  Or gravy. There's just no fighting it: homemade buttermilk biscuits are hard to resist. I somehow forget just how easy biscuits are to make. Now that I think about it, [...]

How to make tortillas

Homemade Tortillas

I have had it up to *here* with store-bought tortillas. Now, usually, homemade anything is better than store-bought.  Agreed? Sure, it's easier to just drop a box of croutons or a bag of bagels into your cart at the store -- or that jar of Alfredo sauce that's on sale... But, is it better? Not [...]
