The Best Butterscotch Pudding

The Best Butterscotch Pudding Creamy, deep hints of caramel, and truly delectable are just a few ways to describe one of my favorite desserts. The Best Butterscotch Pudding is a dessert that impresses all. Even though it takes a bit of time and precision, it's a dessert you can make a head of time, so…

Mushroom and Blue Cheese Tart

Mushroom and Blue Cheese Tart

Mushroom and Blue Cheese Tart Tangy, creamy blue cheese and earthy, meaty mushrooms is my new favorite combo. Placed on top of a butter tart shell and sprinkled with chives? Even better. I especially love this tart because it's not full of eggs like your traditional quiche. Sometimes I think the eggs get in the…

Strawberry and Feta Salad

Strawberry and Feta Salad

Strawberry and Feta Salad Salads are one of my favorite lunch or dinner options. I especially love ones that balance sweet and salty. The combination of sweet strawberries with briny feta, salty sunflower seeds, and herbaceous hints of basil make for a salad that truly impresses. If you're interested in making this salad as an…

Best Brownie 801eats

The Best Brownie Recipe

The Best Brownie Recipe I can confidently say this is the best brownie recipe.  I can't tell you how many brownie recipes I've tested.  I've made Ina Garten's brownies several times, and they are tasty but don't have that "WOW" factor. Since brownies are my husband's favorite dessert, it became my mission to develop a…

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Pineapple Upside Down Cake Yes, Pineapple Upside Down Cake sounds unbelievably dated and cheesy.  But in fact it's quite delicious and addicting. I have yet to make this dessert for someone and they not exclaim how much they enjoy it. The combination of tart pineapple with sweet caramel placed on top of a buttermilk cake…

Shredded Beef Sandwich

Shredded Beef Sandwiches

Shredded Beef Sandwiches Oh how I love these shredded beef sandwiches. Inspired by Ree Drummond's drip beef sandwiches, they are truly one of the easiest and most satisfying meals. You may think that adding an entire jar of pepperonis would make the beef spicy, but it doesn't. The cooking process takes all of the heat…

Creme Fraiche Cheesecake

Creme Fraiche Cheesecake

Creme Fraiche Cheesecake I've got to admit I'm not the biggest fan of cheesecake. Often it's overly sweet and a bit too rich. But after making this cheesecake, I was sold. It's tangy, perfectly sweet, and much smaller than the traditional Cheesecake Factory size piece, making it less of a gut bomb. It's also quite…

Coffee Cake

The Best Coffee Cake

I recently bought Thomas Keller's Bouchon Bakery cookbook. While it's full of delicious looking treats, the one that caught my eye was the coffee cake. I was intrigued with the use of creme fraiche. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint! Here's my adapted recipe.  It tastes just as good (if not better) and…

Sausages and Grapes

Sausages and Grapes

Sausages and grapes you ask? Why yes! It may sound like a strange combination but it's 100% completely, unbelievably delicious.  The sweet and salty combo is truly addicting. Finished off with a red wine and balsamic sauce makes it the perfect dish to eat with toasted garlic bread. Another reason I love this dish is…
