Triple Layer Pumpkin Spice Pie

This no-bake dessert is so easy to make and is topped with delicious candied pecans. Perfect fall dessert!

I absolutely adore no-bake pies because they usually are pudding-based and I really love it. It's such an easy, no hassle type of recipe. This one in particular is slightly elevated with candied pecans on top. They are only two ingredients, so they are really simple to make too.

Cheesy Smashed Brussels Sprouts

Cheese makes everything better plus these brussels are smashed and roasted. Absolutely fantastic!

Let's talk about these brussels...I personally love brussels any which way I can get them. However, my family is a little skeptical when they are whole and I thought what better way to make them than covered in cheese?! That's the trick, right? Kids don't like a veggie, add cheese. I really love the element of blanching and then smashing and roasting the brussels. It just makes for such a good side dish. I think it works so well as a side for chicken or pork.

Weeknight Spaghetti Bolognese

Rich bolognese that tastes like it's been slow-simmered for hours, but is ready in under 30 minutes!

I think I've posted quite a few bolognese recipes, but I just love them so much! I've never really liked any other style of homemade spaghetti sauce. The heavy cream adds so much richness to the sauce. Also I just really love adding veggies like carrots and celery in spaghetti sauce. It's a great way to get some more veggies!

Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwiches

This sandwich is better than any fast food fried chicken sandwich out there!

This sandwich was one that my daughter chose from a cookbook she got as a present. I let her do the work with some supervision and she made the best fried chicken sandwich I've ever had. The seasoning in the breading was perfect and anything that is close to tzatziki is going to be an absolute winner in my book. I don't think I've ever used boneless chicken thighs before, but they are the perfect size to fit on a bun, so I see them being used a lot in the future.
