    Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites With Almonds

    This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #BakeBetterCookies #CollectiveBias #ChewyCookies These simple-to-make chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookie bites are deliciously soft in the middle and chock full of crunchy slivered almonds.  One of my favorite things to do is take a standard go-to recipe, newer or older—doesn’t matter, and tweak it to try and make it better or just simply different. In the case of cookies, that task can be super fun because there are so many different swap-ins, changes, ingredient mashups to try, and generally if the flavors sound good together, the end result will be yummy. In the…

  • Golden crispy air fryer catfish plated with a side salad.

    Catfish Recipes

    Every single one of these catfish recipes looks mouthwateringly delicious. A few years ago I learned that August happens to be National Catfish Month. It seems everything has a holiday now … even catfish! I’m always on board for celebrating a food holiday, and of all the fish options out there, catfish seems like a missed opportunity so much of the time. You see lots of tilapia and salmon on restaurant menus and in the grocery store, no matter where you live. It’s like chicken, they’re so common. In the Mid-Atlantic region, common fish you find available include striped bass (also locally known as striper and rockfish), Bluefish, Blue Marlin…

    Maryland Deviled Eggs

    A sprinkle of Old Bay® turns this otherwise traditional, simple deviled eggs recipe into yummy spiced-up Maryland deviled eggs. Confession time: until very recently I’d never made deviled eggs before. There was never a good reason for not making them, aside from the fact that my mother-in-law has always been the designated deviled egg maker on my husband’s side of the family, and I’m always asked to bring my potato salad or homemade salsa to those (and other) family get-togethers.

  • There’s nothing like the bite of a crunchy, salty topping against the cheesy goodness of creamy chicken spaghetti casserole.

    Baked Creamy Chicken Spaghetti

    There’s nothing like the bite of a crunchy, salty topping against the cheesy goodness of creamy chicken spaghetti casserole. I’m all for comfort food, and when I saw The Pioneer Woman’s recipe for chicken spaghetti a few years ago, I thought, “Is there a way to make that better?” The answer is no. It’s just about perfect the way it is. BUT, when one craves chicken spaghetti, but one doesn’t necessarily have all the ingredients to make THE chicken spaghetti … one must improvise. And truly, some of the best recipe twists come from using things I already have on hand, versus traditional menu planning! Like transforming The Pioneer Woman’s chicken spaghetti into…

    Thin Mints Brownies

    These homemade Thin Mints brownies are simple to make and loaded with rich, dark chocolate fudgy flavor. Browse your Pinterest feed on any given day and you’ll find an endless stream of dessert masterpieces to behold. Cakes complete with a zillion perfectly spaced layers (including the width of homemade, creamy, mouthwatering buttercream frosting), fondant masterpieces, and sculpture work indicative of a university degree in fine art. I’m not crafty. Not even in the kitchen with food projects. The thought of spending copious amounts of time on tedious projects involving little bits of anything makes me want to snarl. Not that I haven’t tried my hand at a project or two; I’ll…
