A Tender Turkey Dinner


Turkey in Crock

By: Lindsay Rutten (@lindsaymarieskckitchen)

As a single mother of two boys while working full-time, I make it a point to create healthy and easy meals with incredible flavor.

After a heart surgery at the beginning of 2020, I had to make some major life changes, and it began with natural and organic ingredients.

I decided a few years ago to involve my children in the cooking process at least two nights per week. At first, my children were not so fond of this plan but have grown to absolutely love creating new recipes together in the kitchen. It has become the highlight of our days!

A Sweet Eat for Breakfast (or Dessert)

Final Cinnaon Roll

By: Bayleigh Dinneny (@bakedbybayleigh)

WARNING: If you live alone, make these at your own risk. You may end up eating all 12 rolls yourself. A safer option is to make these on Thanksgiving morning and share them with your friends and family while you’re otherwise occupied, but make sure you set one aside as a reward for all that cooking.

These rolls are packed with pumpkin, both in the dough and in the filling. For the filling, you’ll reduce the pumpkin puree in a saucepan for about 5 minutes to release some of the moisture and concentrate the flavor. It’s worth the extra step, I promise!

Family-Friendly Fun and Food

I am so excited to share this recipe with you all! This recipe is one of our favorites in my house.

My boys love creating this meal together as a family and enjoying the amazing flavors at the end. It is such a fun recipe to get children involved with as they will love rolling the noodles up! My boys also love pairing this dish with an antipasto salad and fresh garlic bread.

Blueberry Cake Donuts


Buckle up my foodie friends! I have something equally as sweet as is it scrumptious and I can’t wait to share. You make a simple, and I mean simple cake donut batter, mix in some fresh blueberries and dip it into a powdered sugar icing to glaze.

I told you, this ones a keeper!

This one is also great for kids. The little donuts fit perfectly in their little hands! And trust me, they will be back asking for seconds. 

My secret to a perfectly moist cake donut is to nail the consistency. Alternating the flour mixture and the buttercream gradually, allows the dough to set up, blend together and become just the right texture for a perfectly baked mini donut.

Chipotle Veggie Chili

Fall and winter are the only seasons I’ll eat soups, stews and chili. It might sound crazy but in my opinion, there is nothing appetizing about indulging in a warm bowl of soup when it’s 100 degrees outside. That said, I always try to squeeze in as many new fall recipes during the cooler seasons as I can!

Today it’s snowing in Kansas City, which calls for some soul-warming grub for dinner. Cold weather with the combo of #MeatlessMonday means I’m making Chipotle Veggie Chili. This recipe is not only delicious but easy to make and I bet most of the ingredients can be found in your pantry right now.

Chocolate Caramel Peanut Butter Pie


When making desserts in my household I have to be strategic. By ‘strategic’ I mean that I have to make something my husband likes  too. That way, I am not left to indulge in the entire dessert myself. Because I know I will eat the entire thing! Dessert might just be another one of my love languages.

Walnut Apple Pear Crisp


Oh, boy! I have a treat for you guys today.

I know I normally handle more savory recipes, but I have to tell you, this one is killer for fall and winter seasons. It’s a true classic in my book.

It’s a warm Walnut Apple Pear Crisp covered with melting ice cream. It has the perfect crunch from the walnuts and the softness from the baked pear and apple combo. Paired with a creamy, cold scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Yes, my mouth is watering just thinking about it!

Cherry Stuffed Tomatoes


My husband and I try to eat meatless at least two nights a week. Well, let me rephrase this ... I try to make my husband eat meatless at least two nights a week. I could easily be a vegetarian but my carnivorous husband isn’t all aboard that train yet, so we compromise. Consequently, I love to take meatless dishes to any get-together we are attending. For me, it’s a win-win. I bring a meatless option for myself and those who also enjoy meatless dishes while introducing the room to meatless recipes and how amazingly delicious they can be. Queue this delicious and creamy recipe for Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes.

Ricotta Puff Pastries with Strawberry Compote


Ricotta Puff Pastries with Strawberry Compote Hi, foodie friends! Melissa here and I’m super excited to share this sweet and delicious recipe with you. It’s one of my favorites. Fruit lovers of all ages can’t resist this one! The tart strawberries, the heavy cream, the light and fluffy puff pastries ... yum! Check out the kitchen hack in the video below! Here's a hint: you use a straw!

Isn’t that a cool hack? Just poke a straw through the center of a strawberry and BAM, no more stem! I thought that was the coolest thing ever!
