Buffalo Snack Mix

Fall means tailgates! Do you have any planned this season?

At this point in our lives, tailgating is mostly curling up on the couch with a good game snack when the kids allow. I’ll be  honest, though, the current state of the Giants makes me nervous. Hopefully they’re watchable this season.

Of course, watchable or not, there’s always the snacks.

Growing up, one of my favorite treats was lunch at the pizza buffet. And my favorite dessert there? Apple pie pizza. This recreation isn’t the same one I grew up with – it’s better.

Homemade pizza dough and homemade apple pie filling give this a fresh taste – unlike the mostly-processed one I remember from childhood.

Apple spice cake. Cream cheese frosting. Dark Chocolate. All wrapped up in a portable treat. You’re welcome in advance.

Apple Cakesicles 3

I’m calling them cakesicles because they’re just too big to be cake pops. Hefty squares are like a slice of cake on a stick. Sure, you can totally make them into smaller pops – but one taste and you’ll understand why bigger is better.

Pork and Apple Burgers

We are really enjoying the beautiful fall weather lately. It’s made for a lot of dinners on the deck. And while we’re full into fall flavors – like apples! – we’re still using our preferred summer method of cooking – the grill.

No-Churn Caramel Apple Pie Ice Cream

Apple pie or ice cream? With this, you don’t have to decide! This ice cream is so much easier than you think and tastes like a piece of your favorite pie mashed up in a delicious scoop of vanilla ice cream. It’s the perfect dessert for the beginning of fall!

Kielbasa and Vegetable Skillet

Have you ever cooked on a budget? I don’t mean picking between name brand or store brand or using a coupon – I mean having only a few dollars for food and needing to stretch it. For millions of Americans, food insecurity is an everyday reality.

As a food blogger, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the world of fancy ingredients and latest trends. It’s easy to forget that the plentiful food and well-stocked pantry we have is privilege – but it’s one I really don’t want to take for granted.

Kielbasa Skillet 1

September is Hunger Action Month – a time to bring attention to food insecurity. According to the US Department of Agriculture, 1 in 8 Americans were food insecure in 2017. That’s 40 million people – more than 12 million of which are children – with a lack of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life.

Muddy Buddy Rice Krispie Treats

I really love seeing the blog series my friends do – and one of my favorites every year is The Spiffy Cookie‘s #PBChocSat. It’s a nod to her favorite college football team – the Buckeyes – and while I have no real interest in college football, I love anything that involves peanut butter and chocolate.

When she said she was getting a group together to kick off this year’s series, I just had to jump in on the fun.
