The BEST Homemade Pizza Dough

pizza dough

I know its a tall claim to make. But once my Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer and this pizza dough recipe came into our life, we stopped ordering pizza. It’s not a stretch to say we order in pizza about once year. And that this is pretty much a weekly go-to recipe in our home. Continue reading The BEST Homemade Pizza Dough

Cinnamon and Sugar (Churro) Popcorn

Popcorn is my jam. Cinnamon and sugar or churros – yeah you’re going to get my interest there too! Put them together and you have a ridiculously good snack or sweet treat. Super yum.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

What do you do when you needed chocolate chip cookies like yesterday?? Chocolate chip cookie bars, that’s what. These are WAY easier than individual cookies (not that cookies are hard) because there is no scooping or switching cookie sheets, it’s all in one pan. Which makes for even softer, gooier (with plenty of warm, melted chocolate) chocolate chip cookie bars. Yum. These are my answer for impromptu play dates, or quick desserts when we just must have something yummy and gooey (we eat them right out of the pan warm) or when someone in my life has forgotten to mention that they signed me up to bake something…not that such things ever happen!
