Orecchiette with Butternut Squash

Fantastic flavors! Pasta tossed with broccoli rabe, evoo, red pepper flakes & parmigiana : )

I love butternut squash — it’s so versatile + you can enjoy it anytime of the year! A healthy’ish meal that tastes amazing.

You can purchase pre-cut containers for easy convenience. I prefer cutting fresh squash {not an easy task as I get older 🤫} A simple dinner idea ~ I added this recipe to my butternut squash rotation. Hope you have an awesome day! Stay safe 🧡🙂🍂 #autumnvibes #fallflavors

Homemade Salted Caramel

Simply scrumptious! Sure store bought brands are good but homemade caramel 💃 is so much better : )

Have you made caramel before? I felt intimidated the first time making caramel. This is an easy recipe that doesn’t require a thermometer : ) A few helpful tips: use a long wooden spoon or heat resistant spatula to stir – the sugar forms into rock salt-like clumps, as you continue stirring it becomes a thicker amber color liquid – slowly & carefully add the butter & cream, it quickly bubbles up.

Once September comes around, I’m ready for everything Fall! Salted caramel pairs beautifully with pies, ice cream, cheesecake, apples & more : ) I hope you enjoyed the long holiday weekend. Have an awesome day & stay safe 🧡😃🍂

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

Cheesy buttery garlic goodness! So fluffy & dreamy straight from the oven : )

Similar to a popular restaurant biscuit! They’re so simple & delicious. Flaky with the perfect amount of cheese & garlic. Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

I originally planned to use news paper to line the mini loaf pan however, the brown rustic muffin liners {which I love} added a nice touch. A helpful tip: if you don’t own round cookie or biscuit cutters… use the top of a glass similar in diameter.

Homemade biscuits are the best! I hope you have an awesome & safe weekend 🙂🧡☺️ #butteryourbuns #homemadebiscuits

Spring Pea Pasta with Burrata

Eat your peas! I can still hear my Mom saying those very words. Bright sweet peas tossed with ditalini pasta, seasonings & a splash of lemon makes a perfect side or dinner dish : )

A light, refreshing salad with fantastic flavors. The burrata is similar to mozzarella — the cheesy goodness inside is beyond delicious! 💚 #haveagreatday #joyofcooking
