  We couldn’t go through this 10 Days of Pumpkin series without making pumpkin doughnuts at some point. Doughnuts (or donuts) are like anything else out there. Once in a while you just crave one, and I’m not talking about the “healthier” baked version either. I’m talking about a really good, deep fried doughnut. Hey, …

  I don’t know a soul out there who doesn’t absolutely adore monkey bread. It’s gooey and sweet, messy and delicious. It’s a favorite among most. I don’t know this for sure, but I can speculate. When I found out that Zach has never had monkey bread, I almost had a panic attack. Not kidding. …

  Zach and I are suckers for a good mole sauce. Just a couple of weeks ago we visited Salt Lake City and ate at Red Iguana one night for dinner. We were in mole heaven! If you are ever in the Salt Lake area check out one of their restaurants. Their food is extremely …

Buildings and roads are collapsing. People are being evacuated; and it’s just plain scary. This being the case, …

  Day 2 of 10 Days of Pumpkin is all about breakfast. I think I go through more granola than any other food out there. I love the stuff. What I love even more is how creative you can get when making it! It can be sweet or salty; spicy or plain; with or without …

  Chocolate Pumpkin Brownies…with ginger snaps. I think my favorite part of this time of year is all the warm ingredients you get to start using that you couldn’t use over the summer. The summer is great for 100 million reasons, but the thought of even turning the oven on is just plain scary. Even …
