Salted Honey Butter Popcorn

I feel like I need to make a confession: I eat a lot of popcorn. And I’m not just talking about the occasional bowl when we watch a movie or I want an afternoon snack. We go through a serious amount of popcorn, and I have a bad (good?) habit of eating a bowlful for lunch or even a late dinner. Until now, unless I’m making some kind of caramel corn, my popcorn routine was always the same. Drizzle with butter, sprinkle with salt, shove into face. But now, I have this. Salted honey butter popcorn has opened my eyes to new worlds of popcorn enjoyment, and I can’t wait to explore more flavors.

Fluffy Buttermilk Biscuits

I’ve been thinking a lot about your weekend breakfasts. Is that too forward of me? Maybe. But I seriously love sharing breakfast recipes on this site, and I couldn’t get fluffy, warm, buttermilk biscuits out of my head. So I made us me some. Topped with salted honey butter and strawberry jam. And now I’m sharing the recipe so you can get to planning your Saturday brunch menu.

DIY Taco Seasoning

Happy Taco…Wednesday? So I know I’m a day late for Taco Tuesday, but I also knew you guys really needed this recipe for DIY taco seasoning. It’s the perfect way to spice up what may be a dull dinner menu with tons of flavor, without all the preservatives and tons of salt normally found in store-bought taco seasoning. While it’s easy enough to pull out all the spices every time I want to make tacos (or nachos or enchiladas or burritos…), I like doing all the “hard” work once and enjoying the fruits of my labor again and again.

Barney’s Hiccups–A Tequila Cocktail

I love this blog for so many reasons, but one of the most awesome is that I have an excuse to play around with flavors I fell in love with when dining out here in STL. This little number, a super refreshing tequila cocktail, is a riff on something I first tried a few weeks ago at The Libertine, a local place doing some pretty amazing things behind the bar. Their version, called Skatalites in Jalisco, was one of the best drinks I’ve had in a long time, and I immediately knew I wanted to make a version at home.

Cinnamon Blondies

Are you a brownies person or a blondies person? Before I made these cinnamon blondies, I was convinced that I was a brownies gal through and through. We’ve discussed my deep-rooted love of chocolate before on this blog, and I thought that was unshakable. Then I pulled these golden brown beauties out of the oven, and I started to question it. I’ve had blondies before, but these cinnamon blondies are a whole different animal. They’re sweet without being cloying, and the cinnamon chips give them a touch of spice. The smell alone after pulling them from the oven was enough to sway my vote.
