Chocolate Halloween Bark

Chocolate Halloween Bark

It’s HALLOWEEEEN! Which means – CANDY! There’s no denying that October 31st is the most legit reason to just eat candy all day. After coming home when I was younger from trick or treating with pillowcases full of candy, I remember dumping it all on […]

Easy Tomato Chili

Easy Tomato Chili

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been urging fall to start for over a month now. Baking pumpkin desserts, wearing plaid shirts, even painting my nails a deep cranberry color…to some success its finally been below 70! I love this time of year […]

Loaded Skillet Nachos

Loaded Skillet Nachos

My cast iron skillet is my favorite pan to use because aside from the crazy sear you get on meat & vegetables – it makes me feel cool.  There’s no logical explanation for this, there’s just something about it. I made these loaded nachos on […]

Apple Tart

Apple Tart

It was just about 90 degrees here in DC last week, but its October and I feel obligated to be making apple flavored desserts. I’m really waiting until I can go apple picking in mid to late October when the weather feels more like fall […]

Chicken Wings

Chicken Wings

From the kickoff of football season to the Super Bowl, I am excessively making these chicken wings. I should actually make them year-round, but there’s something special about saving them for football season as my fiancé Tom and I are huge football fans. We couldn’t […]
