Sometimes, you need a chocolate hit first thing in the morning, but we all know the guilt that often follows decadent breakfasts. Worry not, I’ve got your back! These brownie waffles are delicious, fudgy, (admittedly kinda dense), and guilt-free! They’re also easy to make and, chances are, you already have most if not all of

During our time in stay-at-home quarantine, we’ve eaten a lot of potatoes. Like, if you took all the potatoes we’ve eaten since March and placed them in a pile, you could probably climb it and see into a second-story window. It’s obscene… but it’s also cheap, which is what brings us here today. Potatoes can

I’ve been meaning to make some kind of soup in my pressure cooker. I was initially going to make some kind of corn chowder, but somehow, I ended up here instead. Corn chowder will almost certainly still happen, as it is delicious and I haven’t had it in forever. Today, though, we have broccoli soup

Banana bread is one of my favorite treats. It’s just cakey enough to make my body think I’m giving it a real dessert, but it’s ever so slightly healthier for you. It’s high in fiber and a classic baked good in any American kitchen. In the past, we’ve had banana pumpkin bread, which had a

Somehow, I’ve managed to spend six years of my life with an Idahoan and almost two years living in the potato state without adding a mashed potato recipe to my blog.
