5 Ingredient Sausage Hash Brown Casserole

5 ingredient egg and hashbrown casserole 011

This casserole is what you make for brunch on Sunday morning or brinner. Your choice! The hardest part to this casserole is browning the sausage.

Gnocchi with Brown Butter and Sage

gnocci 077

I've been through a lot of mixed emotions lately and I'll tell you why. Back in April, I got a divorce. It's been hard for me to come up with recipes for this blog, because that means cooking for one person now. I'll see a casserole recipe that I want to try and then think to myself, no I can't make that, there's too many servings and lots of leftovers. I'm not a leftover person. It's been mostly just eggs, protein, and a frozen pizza every now and then. I've been trying to work on making myself feel happy again. I'm taking classes online to get a better job, practicing my violin again so I ...

Tomato, Cucumber, and Avocado Salad

simple salad 017

Well, I got to work this morning and wasn't expecting a whole garden. A co-worker was kind enough and gave me some cherry tomatoes and cucumbers.  There was a recipe floating around on pinterest that had avocado, cucumber, and cherry tomatoes in it. What a perfect dinner to make for lunch,  only had to get the cheese and avocado at the grocery store. This salad is so simple and so are the ingredients. I just love fresh cucumbers and tomatoes from the garden and the cheese and avocado just take this salad over the top. I must admit something. I am not a fan of vegetables, especially v ...

Mojito Cupcakes

mojito cupcakes 003

These boozy cupcakes will have you drunk and on the floor in no time, because it's 5 o'clock somewhere! It's your basic vanilla cupcake and then you have all your ingredients in a classic Mojito. Rum Mint Sugar lime These cupcakes get brushed with a simple rum and mint syrup right out of the smoking hot oven, and then they are topped with a vanilla frosting, that has lime zest and rum in it.  Even better than a mojito! I'm pretty sure there is something wrong with my top oven. Half of these cupcakes turned out, and then the other half of them had collapsed. I followed the ...

Salted Caramel Butter Bars

sausage and potatoes retake 005

These Salted Caramel Butter bars are a little naughty. A little naughty as in, the cookie bar itself has 4 sticks of butter! You read that right. 4 sticks of butter. Can you feel your arteries clogging now? Not to mention the caramel sauce has a stick of butter in it. These bars would be great at some kind of back to school bake sale. People will love them! Salted caramel is my favorite and this is definitely not a dessert you want to eat if you're trying to watch your pounds. I have to admit, I haven't been watching mine lately. Just been maintaining these days. P.S. These are also the ...

Easy Homemade Pickles

the easiest pickles ever 006

This is probably the easiest pickle recipe you'll ever make, I swear!  The major ingredients you should already have in your pantry. If you haven't noticed, I don't really care for vegetables. That is why you mostly see appetizers, dinner ideas, and desserts on this blog.  Cucumbers are one vegetable that I really do love and this is the reason why. My ex used to call pickles  ruined cucumbers. My friend gave me this recipe a couple years ago and she had got it from her Mom. They are probably the best pickles I've ever made, and you don't need to can them at all. Yep, no boiling some hot ...
