• The Best Cinnamon Rolls (with over-night/make-ahead option AND secret baking instructions!)

    October 2, 2021Brianna

    Cinnamon rolls are honestly a tricky thing to make well. Sometimes you get a super dry roll that just tastes like plain sugar, sometimes you get a roll that is so doughy in the middle you’re worried it’s going to make you sick. Finding the balance between a roll that’s done, but not dry, that…

  • Frosted Peanut Butter Sugar Cookies with Chocolate & Peanut Butter Frosting

    July 26, 2021Brianna

    I really like the soft soda shop type sugar cookies so much that I’m beginning to have a whole series of different versions of them. Since peanut butter and chocolate are my favorite dessert combo it only makes sense to make a peanut butter sugar cookie! These are right up there as one of my…

  • Chicken Stir fry (30 minute meal!)

    July 21, 2021Brianna

    Chicken stir fry doesn’t have to be intimidating or something that takes a long time. This literally takes 30 minutes or less, especially if you meal prep and cut all the veggies up earlier in the day or even up to a few days earlier. This meal is a great way to get your kids…

  • Simple and Delicious Roasted Carrots

    June 15, 2021Brianna

    Aren’t you glad I’m not one of those annoying food bloggers that talks for 15 paragraphs about the world’s simplest recipe? There really isn’t much to say about these roasted carrots except that they’re simple and delicious. And all of that can be gathered from the title of the recipe. So with that, I’ll leave…

  • Killer Potato Salad

    June 8, 2021Brianna

    This is my former roommate, Whitney’s, recipe. She called it killer potato salad because it has a pound of bacon in it so it will probably kill you. This is my favorite potato salad and so insanely fast and easy to make. I prefer eating this cold but if you typically prefer a hot potato…

  • Honey Lime Coconut Curry Chicken with Coconut Rice

    June 7, 2021Brianna

    I love this meal. It’s filling and has some of the most well balanced flavors there could be. Coconut and lime and curry and honey were meant for each other. This is a recipe I’ve been developing for over a year with each time making it adding good notes to my recipe to make it…

  • Browned Butter Snickerdoodles

    June 4, 2021Brianna

    I’ve always felt “meh” about a snickerdoodle cookie. They basically taste like a bland sugar cookie with cinnamon sugar on them. Then I discovered brown butter and all the delicious flavor this adds to basically everything and decided to try a browned butter snickerdoodle cookie. I have one other snickerdoodle recipe on my website and…

  • Homemade Enchilada Sauce

    June 2, 2021Brianna

    The list continues to grow of things I can’t buy in Finland and therefore have had to learn how to buy. Enchilada sauce is one of them. Honestly after learning how to make it myself, this is also another thing I don’t know that I’ll ever buy again at a store when we move home.…

  • Delicious Chicken Gyros with Greek Salad and Tzatziki Sauce

    June 1, 2021Brianna

    I never really had a good Gyro till I moved to Finland. There’s a restaurant called Fafa’s here that basically only sells these and they’re really good. I decided to try and re-create them at home so I can make sure to be able to eat them even after we move back to America. After…

  • Cajun Jambalaya

    May 25, 2021Brianna

    Cajun Jambalaya is a meal I grew up eating relatively often. It was always made from a box mix and that’s how I always have made it too. But then there’s no such thing as box mixes of basically anything in Finland and for sure no jambalaya. Which is ultimately great because it made me…
