    Cinnamon Roll Bars

    Thanksgiving! It’s soon! Do all the things!! Today I made a list of all the food I’m making. Then I made a grocery list. Then I made myself a schedule to reference the day of so that I know when I need to prep and cook everything. Overthinking things? Yes. Unnecessary? Very likely. I make a lot of things complicated that don’t need to be. It’s in my nature. BUT: these Cinnamon Roll Bars are quick, easy, and not at all fussy!

    Honey Pecan Bars

    Holy smokes, people. Thanksgiving is just over a week away. This time of year seems to have a serious identity crisis. Thanksgiving hasn’t happened, and yet the stores are decked out in garland, holiday music is all around, and my Instagram feed is full of sugar cookies and peppermint. While I know exactly where I stand this time of year (TEAM THANKSGIVING!!), I have a few recipes that bridge this gap nicely. These Honey Pecan Bars are one of them, as they’re appropriate for all your holiday gatherings.

    Oatmeal Brownies

    Does anyone use recipe boxes anymore? I don’t know about yours, but mine (I have three) are filled with a hodgepodge of magazine clippings and 3×5 cards. The best ones have grease spots and drips of chocolate on them. The recipes in my recipe boxes are the ones I’ve had forEVER, and for good reason. They’re the foods I’ve known for the longest–many of them recipes from my childhood. Amongst these tried-and-true recipes are these Oatmeal Brownies. These delicious gems are a family favorite, and grace the table *every* holiday season.

    Espresso Shortbread Brownies

    Most people can tell you what their favorite food is. At the very least, they can tell you their favorite breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert if you were to ask. I think most people can tell you what they would choose for their last meal on Earth. That seems pretty normal. But…I am not a normal person. I can tell you this: chocolate and espresso are an *awesome* combination. I would say *one of* my favorites. Suffice to say, these Espresso Shortbread Brownies are amazing.
