Air Fryer Apple Crisp – Easy with Minimal Clean-Up!
Apple crisp is one of those classic desserts that I will NEVER turn down! While it is traditionally a fall dessert, I have no qualms about enjoying it at any time of the year (I have even been known to have it for breakfast.). For this Air Fryer Apple Crisp Recipe, I took an already amazing dessert, and made it even easier to make and with VERY LITTLE clean-up! Get your apples ready, you are going to LOVE this!
Slow Cooker Birria Recipe – Easy & Flavorful!
This Slow Cooker Birria Recipe is one of my family’s favorites! It is absolutely delicious, and you can enjoy it in so many ways. We love to make barrio tacos or quesadillas with this meat, but it is also great all by itself, or served on a salad. The beef slow cooks all day, and it will fill your home with the most tempting smells. Be careful – your neighbors may show up asking what time dinner is!

Funfetti Cheesecake Halloween Cookies
I absolutely LOVE seasonal baking! Christmas baking is probably my favorite, and there is an abundance of recipes for that holiday, but you know what other holiday I have so much fun making treats for? Halloween! The vibrant contrasting colors associated with halloween create the most eye-catching and just plain fun desserts. These Funfetti Cheesecake Halloween Cookies are easy to make, absolutely delicious and they are perfect for any halloween event!
Slow Cooker Carolina Style Pulled Pork – No Smoker Needed!
Growing up in Virginia, Carolina style pulled pork was what we had all the time, and I LOVED it! I have lived in several different places as an adult, but even after being in Texas and St. Louis, no one can convince me that Carolina style isn’t the best type of pulled pork. I have wanted a smoker for some time now, but we haven’t gotten one just yet. I decided to take matters into my own hands and make some delicious pulled pork with my slow cooker, and I sure was happy with the results! I hope you enjoy this Slow Cooker Carolina Style Pulled Pork as much as we did!
Recipe for Gooey Butter Cake – A St. Louis Tradition!
Our family has moved around A LOT. We have moved 5 times (each time to a different state!) in the last 9 years, and we have had 4 babies along the way! The first time we moved, it was from Mathews, Virginia to St. Louis, Missouri. One thing that I quickly discovered after moving to St. Louis was Gooey Butter Cake. You can find this amazing St. Louis creation all over the place, and it is easy to see why. We have since moved back to the St. Louis area, and I have fallen in love with this delicious treat all over again! Check out my Recipe for Gooey Butter Cake below!
Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken Casserole – Easy Cleanup!
This Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken Casserole is made entirely in the crock pot, so you will have hardly any dishes. This is one of those recipes that will be perfect for busy school nights, and to make it even better, the whole family is sure to love it! We like to enjoy this served over rice or mashed potatoes and with rolls and fresh veggies on the side. Go ahead and save this recipe and then thank me later!

Strawberry Crunch Cheesecake Bars with Shortcake Topping
Remember those delicious strawberry crunch ice cream bars? Well imagine those plus CHEESECAKE. These Strawberry Crunch Cheesecake Bars are even easier to make than my traditional Strawberry Crunch Cheesecake, but they taste just as amazing.

One warning: be careful who you make this for, because they WILL ask you to make it again!
