Well here we are! Day 2 of 20 Days of Christmas Cookies! 7 Layer Bars are another extremely easy recipe to make for the holidays. It may even be easier than peanut butter blossoms. They are a quick and delicious dessert. There’s not even any mixer action involved! Everything is just layered into a “lasagna-styled” …

So it begins: Day 1 of our 20 Days of Christmas Cookies! We know we have frolicked away from pairing our dishes with delicious brews, but don’t worry there will be some beer reviews on the way in the next week. We just don’t find pairing cookies with beer very successful. It will be well …

Sorry it has been so long y’all. Traveling took a lot more out of us than we thought! I forget how long the journey back from Colorado to Pennsylvania actually is. It took us about two days to recover and then there was that whole running a marathon thing for Zach this morning, but all …

Believe it or not, this recipe was a tougher job than we had thought. Not because the muffins were difficult to make, but because it took us forever to find the recipe! This is actually Zach’s recipe: one that he’s had for over 10 years. The problem with Zach, is that he tends to misplace …

Something about the cool air and the snow made me want to roast a chicken yesterday. There is just something about warm, comfort food that makes you feel all cozy inside. That’s just what this roast chicken did. I’ve never actually roasted a chicken, so this was a new adventure, but a fun one! Once …
