We went apple picking and came home with about 6 pounds of apples. What to do with all that fresh, sweet goodness? Tart it up with some fresh cranberry and make Instant Pot Cran Apple Butter, of course! This recipe is so easy, mildly tart, not too sweet, and full of warm fall spices. It’s perfect on… well… everything!
Let’s be honest… gift-giving is fun, but it can be so difficult. And so expensive! So instead of giving you the typical “list for him/her” with items that might cost a small fortune, I have broken this list down into several categories and kept things pretty affordable. There is a ton of room for crossover in these categories, so make sure to browse them all, and don’t forget to leave a comment letting me know what you got or are adding to your own shopping or wishlist!
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are one of my all-time favorite candies, and putting them in cookie form and including browned butter? Oh man. If someone stole one of these cookies from the cookie jar, it was probably me… and it was definitely more than one.
I grew up on stroganoff made from Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup. I loved it, but I never knew stroganoff could be more flavorful and have more complexity to it. This recipe, with its creaminess, depth of flavor, slight heat, and hearty thick-cut mushrooms and steak chunks, is a regular in our weeknight dinner rotation.
My Amaretto Cherry Cheesecake might seem intimidating, but it’s more simple than you might think, and the flavor combination is a real showstopper. The main thing to remember when making this recipe is that patience makes perfect cheesecake!
There’s something soothing and comforting about a cup of Earl Grey tea and Walker’s Shortbread Cookies… or biscuits, depending on which side of the pond you’re on. This no-churn ice cream combines these tea time staples into a flavorful, slightly salty, slightly sweet, and satisfyingly creamy and crunchy dessert.
You know how much I love Amazon, and as usual, they came through for me. I’ve listed my summer haul of affordable finds that I can’t wait to wear all summer long. To see my full try on and get my detailed take on each piece, see my IGTV post!
I know people scoff at the phrase “easy as pie” because making pie doesn’t seem all that easy… but this Dutch Apple is so worth the work. I guarantee this pie will be better than any that you buy in a store, and it’s so good that it will have you rethinking the whole “apple pie is for fall” thing.
I’ve always been a very on the go person, and caffeine is my favorite food group, so this Matcha Protein Smoothie is perfect for me. This smoothie has it all — fruit, protein, a touch of sweetness from the honey, and a jolt of caffeine from the matcha.
For Easter this year, I brought two kinds of cupcakes and my spring dress game. I love this blue and white dress, which was made for sunny spring days, and I got tons of compliments on it. Since so many people asked about it, I found some similar pieces and linked them here. Most are in the $20-$30 price range!
