Spanish Style Tortilla

I have been making this easy cheater Spanish style tortilla for years since I first saw the recipe on Serious Eats. I say cheater because it uses a little trick to save time and effort that I love. Instead of thinly slicing potatoes for the dish, it uses salt and vinegar potato chips! I knowContinue reading “Spanish Style Tortilla”

I have been looking for some healthier snacks to make lately. I liked the idea of these as a treat, but a slightly healthier version than yourContinue reading “Healthy Peanut Butter Banana Muffins”

My Favorite Homemade Granola

I will let you know up front, this is not healthy granola. If that is what you are looking for, this isn’t your recipe 🙂 This is more of a dessert/ice cream/yogurt/fruit topping type of thing. I usually eat it as a dessert either by the handful or with milk. It is my favorite forContinue reading “My Favorite Homemade Granola”

Buttermilk Banana Muffins

These little buttermilk banana mini muffins have been one of my kids favorite snacks all through their lives. I made so many batches of these for class parties and lunchboxes.
