Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes with Buttermilk-Caramel Syrup

Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes with Buttermilk-Caramel Syrup by Rachel

To say that I've made a lot of pancakes is an understatement. While we do go through times where we don't eat them for months, we also go through times where we eat them every weekend and Jack eats the leftovers for days. Perhaps not the healthiest of breakfasts buuuuut they are pretty tasty.I used to make them from a mix but they…

Coconut Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Skillet Cookie

Coconut Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Skillet Cookie by Rachel

PagesCoconut Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Skillet CookieOh skillet cookie, you have evaded me until now.I have no idea why I hadn't made a skillet cookie up until this point. It's basically the same thing as making blondies except that you bake it in a cast iron skillet which just adds to the charm. I definitely do not use my skillet…

Blackberry Pie/Cobbler Bars

Blackberry Pie/Cobbler Bars by Rachel

PagesBlackberry Pie/Cobbler BarsJames loves blackberry cobbler. He claims it as one of his favorite desserts (but I really think all desserts are his favorite) but I rarely make anything with blackberries. Of all the berries that are out there, they just aren't my favorite. I do, however, have fond memories of eating them straight…

Elly's World Famous Black Beans

Elly's World Famous Black Beans by Rachel

PagesElly's World Famous Black BeansThese black beans are definitely worthy of the title as "world famous". You can see why they are deemed that in this post on Elly's blog.I've made lots and lots of versions of black beans as a side dish because what else do you serve with tacos/enchiladas/taquitos/etc.? This version, though, is…

Broccoli Pesto Pasta

Broccoli Pesto Pasta by Rachel

PagesBroccoli Pesto PastaI was definitely intrigued the first time that I saw this recipe. Using broccoli as the sauce for a pasta instead of just in the pasta or on the side seemed pretty smart. I was definitely skeptical, though. I just wasn't sure how it would translate or if it would be too...broccoli-ish. Once I started…

Everyone has kids around the same age so they get to see each other and act all kinds of crazy. The adults eat, drink adult beverages, talk, and eat some more. While we also love to go out for kid-free dinners together,…

Goat Cheese and Asparagus Pasta

Goat Cheese and Asparagus Pasta by Rachel

I picked up a bunch of asparagus at the grocery store recently with no idea about what I was going to do with it. I like asparagus but James isn't a huge fan of it so when I was in search of a lunch dish that wasn't a sandwich, I turned to pasta. Not exactly a light lunch but I knew we were having a light dinner so it balances out,…

Pasta with Butternut Squash-Sage Sauce

Pasta with Butternut Squash-Sage Sauce by Rachel

I've had this recipe bookmarked for awhile but when it comes to squash, I generally (wrongly) only like it roasted with butter and brown sugar. I'm boring like that. This looked like such a great way to enjoy pasta without drenching it in tomato or cheese sauce that I knew I had to try it. (Not that I don't love pasta drenched in…

From Scratch Green Bean Casserole

From Scratch Green Bean Casserole by Rachel

PagesFrom Scratch Green Bean CasseroleGreen bean casserole seems to be one of those dishes that you either had every single Thanksgiving (and maybe Christmas) or you never had it all. It also seems like people either love it or hate.I always enjoyed it growing up but I think I mostly liked the topping. The year that I found out…
