Scrumptious Peanut Butter Pie

My bestest gal pal Darcy introduced us to this easy, no-bake treat when we celebrated Pi Day together. We’re silly and celebrate fun days like that. When I brought a slice home, my husband immediately requested I make a whole one in the near future! So, I’ve recreated it at home to see if mine…

Garlic Breadsticks

What’s not to love about a hearty homemade meal? I remember going to potlucks in homes after church and I just loved all the yummy selections of homemade goodness laid out on pop-up picnic tables. I know it’s so cliche, but you really can taste the heart and soul in someone else’s homemade food. That’s…

Green Tomato Chocolate Bread

You read that correctly, tomato bread… I had a bunch of tomatoes that had yet to ripen, and a cold front headed our way. What’s a gal to do, let all her tomato babies freeze and go to waste? “Not I,” said this plant lady. Step 1: pick all your tomatoes before the freeze. Step…

No eggs? No Problem Rolls

I was making meatloaf and mashed potatoes and realized I was completely out of eggs to make our dinner rolls. Womp womp. I quickly scoured the internet for egg free bread recipes and combined a few to adapt into these egg free dinner rolls. INGREDIENTS 1 tablespoon instant yeast 3 tablespoons white granulated sugar, divided* 1/2 cup warm water, (110-115˚F) 1 cup milk (I used…

Homemade Burger Buns

Lately, grocery stores have been a game of hide and seek, or a scavenger hunt when it comes to trying to find specific items, especially baked goods. One of the dinners I had planned included burger buns, which happened to be one of the out of stock items, of course! So I searched all over…

Cowboy Cookies

On today’s baking menu… Cowboy Cookies. Delicious little morsels of coconut, oatmeal, dark chocolate and pecans. They’re disappearing fast!  We’ve made them a few times this month already because they are just THAT good! What can I say? This kid lives topless and in pajama pants. Ingredients: + 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temp….

Cinnamon Crunch Banana Bread

Deliciously warm and filling, with just enough crunch and sweetness. This cinnamon Crunch banana bread has walnuts and dark chocolate morsels and is made with whole wheat flour, so you can say it’s somewhat healthier and have yourself another slice… believe me, you’re going to anyway! Ingredients: • 2 large eggs • 2-3 overipe bananas,…

Carrot Top Hummus

My carrots have gone crazy! But that’s a good thing. I’ve been picking them and we’re enjoying them as a snack, pickled and in salads. But we’re left with all of these beautiful greens. I’m a very waste not, want not type person and try to fill multiple purposes with items. So I researched and…

Crab Corn Chowder

The weather has been straight crazy around here… going from almost 80° to 31° overnight! So when it dipped, we needed something warm and hearty to fill our bellies. Thick and delectable crab corn chowder and pepper jack grilled cheese sandwiches did the trick! Ingredients: 3 large golden potatoes – cubed 2 Medium carrots –…

Jalapeño Pimento Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole

Post-holiday meats tend to take up space in the fridge, and there’s only so many ham sammies we can bear! So I try to mix things up when it comes to using up all the meats and leftover goodies. If you haven’t caught on, I like to make one-dish or one-pot meals here at Joyfullydwell….
