Food to Make on The Fourth!

I can’t believe the Fourth of July is in two short days! We’re gearing up for our annual gathering, where Marlboro Man will grill a bunch of steaks and everyone will bring their favorite potluck dish. I love thinking about food this time of year, and here are some of my favorites! Hope you find […]

No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars

I made these on a recent episode of my Food Network show, and they’re too tasty for words! They’re a super-simple no-bake bar that uses mostly pantry ingredients, and they’re a great treat to have in the fridge for after-school snacks…or, in my case, after breakfast snacks. Show More Summary

Apple-Pecan Mini Pies

This is a variation of the Apple Peanut Butter Delights I posted awhile back, but these have a scrumptious apple pie flavor that’ll knock your apple pie-loving socks off. I made them on a whim last week when Todd had a friend over and was surprised by how tasty the little suckers were. Show More Summary

Chickpea Curry

This is an utterly scrumptious, super-flavorful pantry meal that happens to be one of the fastest ways to satisfy a curry craving that might strike you here or there. I love chickpeas, but I mostly eat them cold, whether whole in salads or pureed in hummus. Show More Summary

Coffee is My Life

Good or bad, right or wrong, I wouldn’t want to live in a world without coffee. I start each morning with iced coffee, and it’s the best way to start the day. Here are some of my favorite coffee recipes throughout the years! Some are drinks, some are sweets, all are heavenly. Show More Summary

Crunchy French Toast

I just have one word to describe this French toast: Oh my. And okay, that was two words. But that’s how good this French toast is. It causes me to lose complete track of how many words I’m using. It also causes me to stop what I’m doing...Show More Summary

Peach Salsa

The first time I ever tried peach salsa was in 1993. Don’t ask me how I’m able to remember these things. Honestly, on a scale of 1 to 10 in terms of daily forgetfulness, I would say I rank upwards of 8 or 9. It’s only because I now faithfully use a to-do app on my phone that I am able to function as a normal person, but my natural state is scatterbrained forgetfulness. I…

Memorial Day is Delicious!

I usually share a roundup of Memorial Day-friendly recipes on the Friday before, because Memorial Day is the kickoff for summer holidays.   Restaurant Style Salsa. Make it by the gallon! Truly the best salsa in the universe.       Grilled Corn Guacamole. Show More Summary

Homemade Chicken Nuggets

Chicken nuggets. What can we say about them? They’re so simple, so ubiquitous, such a steady component in the diet of American kids. And okay—American kids’ parents. And the choices—they’re abundant! From fast food restaurants to big...Show More Summary

Strawberry Mini-Muffins

I’m doing some blog cooking today and tomorrow, so I’ll have some new recipes to share with you in the coming days and weeks. Meanwhile, I posted a new recipe over on Land O’ Lakes and I wanted to share it here to make sure you saw it! They’re Strawberry Mini-Muffins with a yummy, tart strawberry butter to spread on them when they’re warm. Show More Summary

National Eat What You Want Day

Official food days crack me up. There’s everything from National Tater Tot day to National Whipped Cream day, and they’re always fun to hear about. (Not to mention observe. Ha.) I just found out that today is National Eat What You Want Day, and in honor of that, here are some recipes to help you celebrate!   Cinnamon Rolls! Go for it. Show More Summary

In a nutshell, it’s a holiday whose celebration is pretty much limited to America, but has come to be a time to celebrate Mexican heritage and pride. Show More Summary


I was in Los Angeles last week, and my sister Betsy and I ate our way across the city. One thing I noticed was that toasts were absolutely everywhere, on every menu, in a million different forms. And if you don’t know what “a toast” is, you’re about to laugh at the simple description. Show More Summary

Thin Fries

My entire family is addicted to these super-thin fries, and I don’t remember an instance I’ve made them when a single dang fry was left. And usually when I plan on making them, I try not to let the word get out until the last batch is being fried—otherwise they disappear sooner than I can get them on the table. Show More Summary

Strawberry Granola Pancakes

I am in Colorado with my two middle children and their two friends right now. I’m not sure what the cause of this is, but every time I come to Colorado, I strongly and constantly crave two things: granola and yogurt. And when I say “crave,”...Show More Summary

Veggie Chili

Good veggie chili is so arn good that you won’t even notice there’s no meat in it! This pot of goodness is chock full of all the good things in life: veggies, beans, and a lot of spice. Definitely one of my favorite meatless marvels on the planet! (And be sure to look at the variations/serving suggestions at the end. Show More Summary

It’s Super Bowl week, and you know what that means: NACHOS! I mean, come on. It really is all about the nachos. (Don’t tell the Seahawks and Patriots I said that.) Here’s the step-by-step recipe for the luscious Chicken Nachos I made...Show More Summary

Butterscotch Pudding

I had a busy day yesterday because I’m getting ready to start shooting more Food Network episodes on the ranch, and by late afternoon I had a little block of time alone in the house before I had to to run Bryce to the end of our road to meet Marlboro Man, who had to run him to his out-of-town basketball game, before I had to drive the other direction to our town to pick…
