Savory Pumpkin Pizza

Ok! I know what you are thinking. Pumpkin, YES! Pumpkin on pizza, UM NO! I agree, this may not be for everyone, but it really was good! That’s coming from a Pepperoni Pizza only girl. It took my brain a minute to become comfortable with the fact that I wasn’t eating red sauce but once […]

Loaded Baked Apples

I love baked apples when the weather turns cool!  The warm, sweet flavors are all things FALL to me! This recipe is high on flavor, low on hassle and perfect for a weeknight dessert or entertaining. The recipe is for 4 baked apples but can easily be adapted for more. I used my pie pan, […]


Who loves brownies?  (This girl!) Who loves pumpkin season? (Also this girl!) Who could use another pumpkin dessert in their recipe files? (Me) Well, I present to you….Pumpkies!  The pumpkin brownie that is not too sweet and packed with plenty of the orange stuff.  The addition of browned butter and pecans adds another “fall” flavor and texture!

Be a Pumpkin Season Snack rock star with these adorable “pumpkins”. When I first made these for my family, I was met with “oohs and aahhhs”, well mostly “those are so cute!” but that works too. Now my crew has requested them for Thanksgiving! These fun little guys are perfect for a snack, a dessert […]

Baked Oatmeal

Quesadilla Ring

When I recently came across this Quesadilla Ring, we had to give it a try. Besides the taste and versatility, this is a […]

Chicken Dip

We were still in “party food” mode around here after the Quesadilla Ring, so I whipped up my family’s favorite Chicken Dip for a snack. They had been requesting it for the past week! This dip is perfect for an appetizer and can be prepared ahead of time in your That’s My Pan pie pan, covered with […]

Breakfast Potatoes

One of the best cooking hacks I ever heard was cooking bacon in the oven! I mean, this was a game changer for me.  Prior to this tip, I cooked a few pieces of bacon at a time in a skillet, on the stove top. Once someone told me about cooking it in the oven, […]

There’s nothing better than apple pie! Unless it’s Apple Dumplings, Apple Strudel, Apple Fritters… Can you tell I love apple season? I have recently become a fan of Honey Crisp apples after a life time of being a Granny Smith Green Apple gal; I didn’t know what I was missing!  When I came across a […]

This week I have decided to get “Fall” started in my house!   Since I am trying to set the “Autumn” mood, I might as well start in the kitchen. Supper tonight is going to be Caribbean Jerk! Wait, What? You think that Caribbean Jerk is more of a summer grill flavor as opposed to […]
