Vanilla Maple Baked Stuffed Apple Parfaits

As I sit down to type up the recipe for these baked stuffed apple parfaits (I really love these as a quick, sweet, nutrient-rich breakfast or snack), I’m looking at my napping beagle Calvin and cracking up. Because, as much as I love these baked apples, this recipe is most certainly…

Easy Baked Parmesan Dijon Chicken Tenders

Many years ago, I’d often store a bag of frozen breaded and fried chicken tenders in the freezer, just for those hectic, over scheduled days when I didn’t want to put a lot of effort into dinner preparation. Those days are a very distant memory now, since I’ve learned it’s nearly as easy…

I was taking a look at the most popular recipes on my site since the start of fall, and (no shocking surprises here), from Drunken Pumpkin Chili to Coconut Curry Pumpkin Soup to 20-Minute Pumpkin Cheesecake Parfaits, everyone is all about the pumpkin recipes right now. This was excellent news…

Garlic and Herb Baked Fries

My favorite kind of dishes to make are “healthier” comfort foods, and these oven fries are just that kind of recipe. “Healthier” comfort foods, to me, are rich, craveable dishes that are made with nutritious ingredients. And these potatoes are definitely comfort food: warm, golden and crisp after being brushed with…
