Smoked Paprika Cheese Croissants

This post is sponsored by Price*s but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. We’ve all been there. Family members from out of town litter your extra bedroom, pull-out couches, and even the blow-up mattress in the hallway. As you quietly tiptoe through the pile of sleeping relatives into the kitchen, you realize you need to pull together breakfast and quick. Soon enough the snoring masses will transform into a hungry mob that isn’t afraid to verbalize complaints. But the worst part of this whole scenario? Your mother-in-law is one of the sleeping giants. Oh yes, you know …

Blueberry Swirl Pancakes with Nutella® Hazelnut Spread

Special thanks to Nutella® for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own. Nostalgia comes in many forms. For me, a jar of Nutella® hazelnut spread fills me with warm childhood memories. Pastries made with love and an encouraging nudge from my mom to help myself to the delicious spread. Nostalgia so perfect, that I want to recreate it for my own daughter. So you can imagine my squeals of joy when the heavenly brand asked me to design a breakfast recipe to complement their scrumptious spread. Wanting to capture the whimsy and warmth of happy childhood memories, I whipped …

Holiday Homestead Buns with Southern Kitchen

Special thanks to Southern Kitchen for sending me this lovely skillet to play with and sponsoring this recipe post! I moved to Houston, Texas a little over a year ago and officially became a Southerner. It immediately became clear that a few things came along with that status. Southerners are unfailingly polite. They are heartwarmingly proud of their land. And they take their kitchens seriously. A Southerner’s kitchen is a place of wonderment, hard work, and love. It is a place to gather, feel at home, and enjoy with the special people in your life. A Southern’s kitchen has some …

It is in those rare moments that …

Dad’s Bacon Ramekins

Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. All opinions are entirely my own. Father’s Day. A day to celebrate the special men in your life. A day to spoil dad, your partner, the brother, or friend that is an expert at monkey impressions and piggy-back rides. I personally can’t think of a better way to celebrate this exemplary man than with the ultimate, the coup de gras of all foods… bacon. I’ve teamed up with Wright® Brand Bacon from HEB to come up with a recipe to personally spoil my husband: the man that makes my …

Smoked Paprika & Mustard Croque Monsieur

The weekend is almost upon us and thus you should start thinking about your Sunday brunch menu. Admittedly, my weekend menu usually includes a coffee and oatmeal bar on the run… I am the mom of a toddler, so it is not the glamorous feast you’d expect from a professional foodie. Regardless of my current chaotic morning routine, when the stars align and the wind sails in from the East, I like to put together a killer brunch. So with a busy schedule in mind, I created a delicious twist on a super easy recipe that is sure to knock …
