Martinis & Mistletoe Party Inspiration

December 12, 2014 duchessoffork 3

If there’s one thing my husband and I love, it’s entertaining. There’s something so rewarding about having a house full of friends and family, sharing stories and laughs over food and drinks. Our house is set up perfectly for hosting parties. It’s very …

My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie

December 8, 2014 duchessoffork 2

I bake a lot of cookies. TONS of cookies, people. When I met Jason I’d lost a substantial amount of weight and really didn’t have a sweet tooth. Well that strapping husband of mine could eat sweets all day long, and he’s ever so kindly passed his love of sug …

Thanksgiving Prep 2014

November 24, 2014 duchessoffork 2

We hosted Thanksgiving last year for the first time and had a blast. It is certainly a lot of work, but nothing is better than opening your home up to family, especially on Thanksgiving. Now that we’ve moved into the new house and are mostly settled, we’re looking …

4 Ingredient Cake Mix Cookies

November 13, 2014 duchessoffork 1

Baking cookies from scratch is one of my greatest joys. My kids love nothing more than helping me mix, stir, and lick the beaters, of course. When I’m pressed for time, or just in the mood to shake things up, I use cake mix to make cookies. Have you ever tried this litt …

October 20, 2014 duchessoffork 0

My food processor is, without a shadow of a doubt, my all-time favorite kitchen gadget. I don’t think most people realize all of the ways you can use a food processor. Sure, it’s great for shredding veggies, but the mighty processor can do so much more! Before we …

Easy Homemade Peanut Butter

October 2, 2014 duchessoffork 1

I’m not sure why I waited so long to make my own peanut butter. I’m fairly certain that our family keeps the peanut farmers of America in business. We eat more peanut butter than anyone I’ve ever seen. We put it on waffles, pancakes, crackers, spoons, finger …

I’m currently on Day 4 of a five day clean eating challenge. My eating has been way off track lately and I need to get my mind right. Surely I can make it through five days of clean and healthy eating, right??? So far, so good. The only catch is that I’ve missed b …

Over-Stuffed Kit Kat Cookies

September 2, 2014 duchessoffork 3

These cookies are insane. Ridiculous. They’re so addicting that I made them on two separate occasions this weekend. Chocolate chip cookies. Stuffed to the max with chunks of Kit Kat bars. You’re welcome. People constantly ask me for my cookie recipe because they t …

Oatmeal Pecan Scotcheroos

August 15, 2014 duchessoffork 0

When I met The Duke, I wasn’t really into sweets. Sure, I thought cookies, cakes, and candies tasted fine, but I never craved them. I’d bake for my college roommates without even sampling the cookie dough. What sane person does that? Passing up perfectly delicious …

Simple Corn Salsa

August 4, 2014 duchessoffork 3

If you’ve been reading my blog for even 5 minutes, you know that we LOVE Mexican food around here. The four of us could eat it morning, noon, and night. Julia could eat an entire bowl of queso dip in one sitting if we’d let her. Heck, I could, too. You’ll fi …
