Instant Pot Rotisserie Chicken

Adapted from Damn Delicious for the larger size chicken my grocery store usually carries and the ingredients I usually have on hand. I love this for meal prepping. It’s great for adding salads, soups, casseroles, or eating straight out of the fridge. Ingredients:1 – 6 lb whole chicken, neck and giblets removed2 teaspoons kosher salt1 […]

Blush and Ivory Velvet Stripes Throw

I originally made this blanket to go on Harper’s bed when we transitioned her out of her crib, but I’d be lying if I said that I haven’t wanted to claim it for myself. As a matter of fact, I’m snuggled under it right now. Tip: make sure your stitches are tight or the yarn […]

Southwest Chicken Salad

A week or two ago I made a big batch of these salads, inspired by the Santa Fe Kickin’ Chicken Salad at a local restaurant, and they were so good! I mean, it’s a salad served on a bed of tortilla chips and topped with a super flavorful ranch dressing, so you can’t really go […]

Salt and Pepper Sourdough Discard Crackers

I started my sourdough journey for the bread, but I’m staying for the crackers. These crackers specifically. They’re light and flakey and buttery. I could probably (definitely) eat an entire batch by myself in one sitting. So, without further ado, Salt and Pepper Sourdough Discard Crackers. (This is adapted from a King Arthur Flour cracker […]

Alex’s Margaritas

My husband, Alex, has been making these margaritas for years when we have company over and they’re always a hit. If you’re from the midwest, they’re like an upgraded Carlos O’Kelly’s margarita. If you’re not from the midwest, picture any sit down Mexican chain restaurant. You know the one. They serve their margaritas in giant […]
