Classic Soft Pretzel

Classic Soft Pretzel

Hello hello! It’s me. Stephen. Long time no see, I know I know. I’m not going to lie, it was a busy summer and I feel like I’ve barely cooked in ages. Hopefully now that autumn is fast approaching, I’ll be able to spend more time in the kitchen! So… My mom has been on...
Ranch Party Mix

Ranch Party Mix

Hi. Remember me? Stephen. The blogger who hasn’t blogged recently? Yeah, me. Now you remember. Sorry I disappeared for a while. Blame the craziness of everyday life, depressing cold weather, juggling multiple jobs, and laziness for keeping me away. But I’m back now and have some fun recipes to share with you…if you’ll let me!...
Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Seeds

Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Seeds

In another life, I may have been the Great Pumpkin. At the very least, I was its groupie. No, I’m not obsessed with that Charlie Brown movie (in fact, I barely remember it…don’t judge), it’s just it’s a great time of the year. Everyone comes together to joke around, huddle around campfires, and go for...
Fruit n' Oat Bars

Fruit n’ Oat Bars

Oh man, do I love granola bars. Throughout my entire life, we’ve always had at least 3 different kinds of granola bars in the house. My mom would toss me a bar or two to stash in my backpack, car, or jacket pocket whenever I’d leave the house. It doesn’t even matter what flavor. I...
Crispy Roasted Chickpeas

Crispy Roasted Chickpeas

Whoops, looks like I spent the week slacking off on blog responsibilities…which stinks because I had just gotten into a great posting routine. Sometimes I just don’t want to measure stuff when I cook. But honestly, I guess my lackadaisical effort has mainly been a mix of being moody all week and only wanting to...
Kale Chips

Kale Chips

I love kale, but my parents claimed they didn’t. Soak that in for a second. They CLAIMED they disliked kale. That’s right, prior to last weekend, they had never eaten kale before, yet 100% knew they didn’t like it. Madness. Give things a chance people! **secret time – I’ve fed my folks kale before…they assumed...
Reese’s Rice Krispie Treats

Reese’s Rice Krispie Treats

Yesterday was my friend’s birthday, so I wanted to make her something (I’m all about food gifts). After thinking about it for a little bit, I decided to make my favorite rice krispie treats for her. But these are no ordinary rice krispies…these have Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups mixed inside and a peanut butter chocolate...
Rosemary Flatbread with Sea Salt & Olive Oil

Rosemary Flatbread with Sea Salt & Olive Oil

Oh flatbread. Why am I so addicted to thee? Why must your delicious crunch tempt me daily? Sigh… Just a few weeks ago I wrote about my newest favorite cracker flatbread from Townhouse (Flatbread Crisps w Sea Salt & Olive Oil), but now, here’s a recipe to whip up these delicious snacks from scratch! The...
Townhouse Flatbread Crisps: Sea Salt & Olive Oil

Townhouse Flatbread Crisps: Sea Salt & Olive Oil

My addiction to crackers is pretty much equivalent to an old lady’s obsession at hoarding free bread in her purse at restaurants…aka I can’t help myself! They are crunchy and salty and bite sized and plentiful; exactly how I like my mindless snacking. The crackers I’m about to share with you all are VERY addictive....
Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies

Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies

Oh yes…peanut butter. So good, so creamy, so comforting. We always have a jar (or five) lurking about our pantry, so peanut butter has been a major food trend in my life. It’s great straight out of the jar but is also a very versatile ingredient to cook/bake with. My brother was heading out to...
100 Calorie Chips

100 Calorie Chips

I recently took a walk down a grocery store aisle I rarely visit – the snack aisle. Don’t get me wrong, I love to snack, but typically prefer to make my own munchies. Anyway, I noticed how many classic American snacks now come in 100-Calorie Snack Packs. I guess the low calorie diet trend is...
Eggplant Dip

Eggplant Dip

Do you want something creamy and delicious that bursts with flavor? How about a creamy, delicious, flavor bursting, LOW CALORIE dip? If that sounds good to you, here is my egg plant dip! In this recipe there are sweet red bell peppers, creamy eggplant, garlic, fresh herbs, and slightly spicy red pepper flakes…the combination is...
