This is by far one of the simplest, easiest, and tastiest recipes I know for the buttery fall vegetable. ¬†And with a total of 5 ingredients needed, two of which are salt and pepper, this is a great addition to any dinner. All this dish takes is the butternut squash, some melted butter, brown sugar, and salt and pepper to create the perfect compliment to a cool fall night.…

    You know when you have that list of ingredients for a dish and there’s that ONE ingredient that just does not seem to fit it? ¬†You know, “one of these things is not like the other”. ¬†This is definitely one of those recipes. ¬†We recently visited our local apple orchard and came home with an entire bag of amazing apples.

So what is the black sheep of the ingredients you ask? Brace yourself…. Mountain Dew. Yes.…

  • Caramel Apple Cookie Ice Cream

    Fall is now upon us and what better way to celebrate than by making some Caramel Apple Cookie Ice Cream? ¬†We just recently purchased an ice cream maker for our son’s birthday and have been trying all sorts of different combinations of treats. ¬†The idea to try the new Caramel Apple Oreos came when eyeing the cookies on the store shelf a few days ago. ¬†Oreo cookies, caramel, and ice cream? Yes please! Who doesn’t love ice cream with a little caramel in it?! To¬†be honest, I was not really sure how all the flavors would come together but in the end it tasted AMAZING! ¬†Just the right amount of sweet caramel, the…
