Now I Get It! {Recipe: Biscoff Biscotti & “Keep Warm” with Frigidaire}

Biscotti Vert

Pin It I finally get the love people have for Biscotti. I honestly didn’t understand it before. Why was there such adoration for a crunchy type treat that seemed to be having an identity crisis? Is it a cookie or is it a biscuit? Besides that, all the Biscotti I had in the past seemed…

Oh, Bananas {Recipe: Banana Gelato}

Banana Gelato

Pin It Three ripe bananas were sitting in our fruit basket, taunting me with options. Should I make banana muffins?  How about sour cream banana pancakes? Banana Crumble was a huge hit around here… maybe I should use these ripe bananas to make that recipe. Undecided, I went about my business for the day, still…

It’s a Wrap {Recipe: Buffalo Chicken and Black Bean Wrap}

Buffalo Chicken Burrito

Swanson’s chicken challenged me to create a recipe to solve the 5 o’clock dinner dilemma. My biggest challenge with dinnertime is to remember to set out the meat from the freezer. Nine times out of ten I have a plan, but if that plan requires simply removing the meat from the freezer, my mama brain…
