Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread {Homemade Nutella!}

When it comes to holiday goodie-giving, you’ve got the go-to regulars, like fudge and sugar cookies, and you’ve got the last-minute, like store-bought chocolate bars, but sometimes you need something impressive.  Something extra special.  Something that says, I just ground my own hazelnuts for this stuff, yo.  When I was flipping through a recent issue of Bon Appetite and came across something titled “Better-Than-Nutella” I was intrigued.  Then I saw the ingredient list and I was sold.  This stuff is …

White Beans with Rosemary

You know how every summer, I spend about 92% of my time complaining about the weather in Louisiana? Yes, it’s true, summer in Louisiana kills my soul (and just for kicks, I thought I’d throw pregnancy into the mix this last summer…it was amazing when my baby was born and I suddenly didn’t feel overheated and filled murderous rage the vast majority of the time). But what’s even more melancholy for this Utah girl are the lack of distinct seasons. …

Who’s Ready for Christmas??

It seems like the very second we slam down the last piece of pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving, everyone is busting out the jingle bells and switching gears to Christmas.  I saw my neighborhood literally light up over the weekend with Christmas lights, and I LOVE IT.  I also feel like the closer it gets to Christmas, the more fun ideas I see around the blogosphere, and I always wish I would have thought of them earlier so I could have …

Happy Thanksgiving Week!! First off, if you didn’t see our amazing giveaway that’s going on right now, be sure to head over to that post–you won’t be sorry you did! Then head back over here to check out all our Thanksgiving ideas. I’m in serious denial that Thanksgiving is 3 days away.

Sweet Corn Spoonbread {2 Ways!}

The first time I ever tried spoon bread it was from this classic Jiffy recipe.  It’s definitely yummy, but it’s also a little dense and can sometimes be mushy.  After I tried real, legit spoon bread from scratch, there’s no going back.  If you’ve never heard of spoon bread, it’s sort of like a cornbread souffle.  Or just really soft, moist cornbread.  So soft, that it’s eaten with a spoon.  It’s a creamy corn mixture that’s combined with eggs and …

Four Ingredient Nutella Sandwich Cookies

Yep, you got it.  Four.  That’s one more than 3 and one less than 5.  I won’t lie, usually I’m skeptical about recipes that brag about their lack of ingredients, but this one had me at Nutella.  We have another yummy cookie recipe that involves Nutella, but they’re more of a sweet little chocolate cookie with a hint of Nutella.  In fact, you might not know there was Nutella in there unless someone told you.  They’re perfectly delicious, but if …

First of all, I know Sara mentioned Monday’s post in her post on Wednesday, but I just wanted to thank all of you so much for your sweet thoughts and also for opening your hearts and sharing similar stories.
