Biscuits and Gravy

biscuits and gravy

Tweet Last year when Chris and I were at “YouTube Camp“, we stumbled upon Pann’s Restaurant. From the outside, it looked exactly marvelous and once we were inside, we knew we were destined to find it. Besides a giant plate of cheese eggs and chicken and waffles, we also shared an order of biscuits and […]

Deluxe Chocolate C..

oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

Tweet I love cookies with lots of stuff in them. These deluxe chocolate chip cookies have lots and lots of stuff in them: chocolate chips, oatmeal, coconut, pecans, almonds, walnuts. If you’re more of a mind to make simple chocolate chip cookies, you can omit the coconut and nuts and just use more chocolate chips. […]

Mac and Cheese

mac and cheese

Tweet Mac and cheese with three cheeses! That’s thrice the cheesy flavor for thrice the mac and cheese goodness. For this recipe, I’ve used sharp Cheddar, Gouda and Parmesan. Cheddar for the bite (and the classic color) with Gouda for extra creaminess and some Parmesan for extra saltiness. Swap out Parmesan for blue cheese if […]

Banana Bread Recipe

Tweet Mama used to make banana bread often and give us thick slices, toasted, with peanut butter for breakfast. It’s one of my favorite comfort foods that takes me back, though I don’t make banana bread very much. Tweet

Turkey Gravy

Tweet It’s Thanksgiving time and that means horrible dry turkey that is only edible once slathered in turkey gravy! I kid. Your turkey doesn’t have to be dry; follow this butter-injected turkey recipe to see. But, dry turkey or delicious, having a gravy-boat-load (or several) of turkey gravy on the table is very necessary. Tweet

Apple Cake

Tweet Before we get to the business of this totally amazing apple cake with marzipan fruits, let me tell you a story. Or you can skip the story and just scroll along down to the video and recipe. I will never know the difference and you will get apple cake a little bit sooner. Tweet

Welcome to the Bab..

Welcome to the Baby Jungle

TweetWe did it. We made a baby. Flint D. Sharpe, born October 28. After the easiest pregnancy and the fastest delivery ever (just over 6 hours, what?!!? My uterus is amazing.) we finally have the baby for whom we’ve waited over two years [ICYMI, read about the depressing Molar Pregnancy of 2012 here]. It’s bananas. […]
