Traditional Shepherd’s Pie

Traditional Shepherd’s Pie is an Irish dish made with seasoned ground lamb, carrots, potatoes and peas and topped with mashed potatoes. Can you believe it is March already? I’m trying to figure out where in the world the months are going! While this year is definitely flying by, winter is […]

Bulleit Bourbon Orange Crush

The Bulleit Bourbon Orange Crush is my favorite drink. Bourbon is my favorite liquor. This gets me a lot of strange looks. Apparently, “girls don’t like bourbon”. 🙄 Except, I do. I’m not part of that group of women who pretends to like bourbon because it’s popular among men. I’m old, […]

Nutella Swirl Bundt Cake #BundtBakers

Nutella Swirl Bundt Cake – a classic vanilla bundt cake with a hearty swirl of nutella throughout as well as a nutella glaze on top. Confession: when Nutella first became popular enough here that I could find it in the stores, I bought a jar and maybe at ate the […]

Mint Chocolate Cupcakes

Mint Chocolate Cupcakes are super tasty cupcakes, where the cupcake is infused with fresh mint. Then, they’re topped with a rich chocolate buttercream frosting. I love fresh mint. I’ve grown it (or at least tried to) for the past couple of years now. It’s done moderately well, but I think I […]

Slow Cooker Italian Roast Beef #ImprovCookingChallenge

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it 1,000 times. I am not a fan of winter. It’s cold and gross and makes me crave comfort foods that are usually chock full of calories and other unhealthy things. But this Italian Beef Roast only has a few ingredients, is really […]

Italian Love Cake

It’s National Chocolate Cake Day! Of all of the food holidays that exist, this one is pretty high up on my list of ones that I’d like to celebrate. Who doesn’t like chocolate cake? Well, actually, I’m not a huge cake fan. 🤷 I know, I know. Cheesecake: yum. Pie: great. […]

Dairy-Free Cookie Dough Overnight Oats

Cookie Dough + Overnight Oats = Breakfast. What could be better than that? If you’re lactose intolerant, having a dairy-free version I’d guess! I am way late to the overnight oats food train, but I am so glad that I still got on it!  As a kid, I didn’t really […]

Sausage and Spinach Lasagna

For Christmas my aunt brought over lasagna. Prior to that, I honestly don’t know how long it has been since I’ve had lasagna. A few years at least. 🙄 It’s not that I don’t like it, it’s just the combination of being lactose intolerant and trying to eat less carbs has […]

Honey Oatmeal Bread

Is there anything better than the smell of freshly baked bread? Probably not. I haven’t made bread in ages and the thought of a honey oatmeal bread sounded perfect for a chilly day. Have you ever drizzled honey on bread? I tried this for the first time, thinking a bread […]
