Buttermilk Gingerbread Cake With Spiced Citrus Buttercream


So, my KitchenAid mixer broke on Saturday. Devastated. Just wanted to get that out of the way because it’s pretty much all I can think about. And my computer start-up disc is full and Photoshop keeps telling me my ‘scratch disc’ is full. Which I’m now pretty sure are the same thing. I think. I’ve spent the entire day transferring things…

Chocolate Peppermint Crinkles


Every year I do some type of Christmas cookie that combines peppermint and chocolate. 2016’s creation is this little Chocolate Peppermint Crinkle number pictured above. Look at her… I’m being totally modest when I tell you she’s amazing. But it’s not just one cookie recipe I get to share with you today… There are seventeen others. Wait, what?!? I know…who knew life…

Chai Pumpkin Tart With Gingersnap Crust


Thanksgiving is my holiday. I give the kids Halloween and Christmas…candy, costumes and presents. But Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday. I love cooking everything, I love how everything tastes…I love how the whole purpose is to get together, break some bread, clink some glasses and be grateful. It’s the best kind of day. I want to share some quick tips…

Cranberry Spice Breakfast Buns


I love entertaining around the holidays!! I say yes to everything and then I feel completely rushed and overbooked. Does anyone know what I’m talking about? So when I was creating these breakfast buns my number one priority was for them to taste delicious. Obviously. But it was also extremely important that they be quick + easy. Because we’re going…

Cranberry Bark Peace Cookies


I like to keep things light and fluffy around here, but I’m not feeling especially so this week. BUT, instead of waxing on about everything you’ve already heard or read, I’ll refrain and just say, let’s spread a little love. A little peace. A little laughter. These cookies will put a smile on anyone’s face. Pour yourself some tea. This…

Cranberry Pecan Baked Apples


We’re not making baked apples nearly as often as we should. I know this. For fact. It’s just not a go-to dessert and I’d like to change that. First, because it is next-level deliciousness. Second, because it’s one of the easiest desserts you’ll ever make. I’m proposing these as a sweet treat to get us through until Thanksgiving (because we need something…

Brown Butter Muscovado Banana Bread


I’m having one of those so-much-to-say-I-have-nothing-to-say moments. Maybe it’s because it’s getting cooler? The sky a little darker? Or perhaps because I have a moment to breathe. I was going to talk about how busy I’ve been. We’ve been. How I haven’t taken two seconds to  pause. None of us have. How grateful I am for the work I’ve been getting.…

Halloween Candy Cookies


First, let me just say this cookie is life changing. Who else always has a ton of leftover Halloween candy? If I don’t buy too much candy to hand out, then my kids bring home ridiculous amounts of candy that haunts us for weeks and sometimes months. Dentists say it’s better to OD on candy over a few days rather than every day…

Brown Butter Pumpkin Donuts


I really resisted the whole baked donut thing. For a long time. Cast them aside as imposters. Heretics. Then one day as I was mindlessly perusing Bed, Bath & Beyond I spied a donut tin heaped on top of a messy pile of towels and tooth brush holders and shower caps. I held it up and inspected it. I had visions of me…

Apple Cinnamon Muffins


I was at the doctor the other day and he spent 45 minutes trying to convince me to go vegan. To ward off inflammation. Do you think this is what he had in mind? These are so easy + delicious, it breaks down like this… Whip up your wet ingredients (think buttermilk, sour cream, eggs + oil) and then fluff…

Portuguese Soup With Crispy Prosciutto + Manchego Toast


I wanted to create a soup that was Caldo Verde adjacent, with potatoes and kale and sausage, but I wanted (NEEDED) more of a clear soup rather than creamy. So I set out to use all of the key Caldo Verde players: Portuguese sausage (I offer several substitutions below if you can’t find it), loads of kale and potatoes. Then thoughts…

Slow Cooker Spiced Apple Cider


I was completely inspired by Half Baked Harvest’s maple apple cider recipe in which she uses a slow cooker to make it. I was so inspired, that I got up off of my arse and played around with the recipe a bit. I have four apple trees so fasten your seatbelts…there are quite a few more apple recipes coming your way. My…

Spiced Apple Cake


Seriously, stop what you’re doing and make this cake. It’s that good. I’m currently out of town and the eighth and final version of this cake is sitting all alone on my kitchen counter. Neatly tucked under a covered glass cake plate. It’s just waiting for me. Calling my name. I found this apple cake recipe, all nice and tidy and written…

Salted Dark Chocolate Violet Cookies


You guys, I made us a fancy cookie. I know. It’s exciting. Did you ever eat French violet hard candies when you were a kid? I was obsessed with them. They usually came in beautifully-designed little tins that I coveted. I think I was as much obsessed with the tins as I was with the candy itself. So when thefeedfeed + method ask…

Classic Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


I realized recently that I’ve been woefully neglect of including oatmeal cookies in the DisplacedHousewife family. Chocolate? Yep, plenty of that. But oatmeal? No love. The loss was weighing heavily on our hearts. An emptiness that just couldn’t be filled. We had to rectify the situation. I set out on a journey to make us THE PERFECT oatmeal cookie. It was a…
