My daughter loves those mini frozen bagel pizzas, so I wanted to make an easy Pepperoni Pizza Bite recipe from scratch. I figured making bagels and then topping them with pizza ingredients would take too long, so I streamlined them and made them in muffin tins instead. These mini pizza bites would be great for an afternoon snack or even a party appetizer. If your kids like these pizza bites, you should also try my Pizza Sausage Rolls and Stuffed Bagel Balls.

Sausage Balls are savory, cheesy, and dippable, perfect as an appetizer or as part of a game-day spread! Make them with store-bought or homemade Bisquick mix.

Several sausage balls arranged on a white plate next to a bowl of ranch

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times – I am not into football – at all. But what I am into is snacks and I can whip up a pretty darn good game day spread!

From ham and cheese sliders and buffalo chicken dip to baked potato dip and sausage cheeseballs, our game day grub is always delicious.

If you’ve never had sausage cheese balls, you’re in for a treat.

Plus, they couldn’t be easier to make. All it takes is a few simple ingredients and a stint in the oven, and you’ve got the perfect nibble for game day, brunch, or your next holiday gathering.

hot honey bacon wrapped goat cheese stuffed dates

We are checking ALL the boxes here!!

Bacon wrapped goat cheese stuffed dates are nothing new or exceptionally exciting – I’ve made them for years and never thought they warranted an actual blog post. 

But then!

I went and drizzled them with hot honey while still hot and my life was forever changed.

goat cheese stuffed dates

If you need the perfect snack for new year’s eve or even new year’s day, these are it!

And they are really quite easy to throw together.

I have a few recipes for hot honey here on the blog – I always made it at home before it was readily available. But these days I can find it at Target (used to find it at ALDI too!) and the Mike’s version is pretty much everywhere. Plus, it’s super good.

All you need? A pack of dates, some bacon, goat cheese and the honey. That is IT!

I slice the date lengthwise, but not all the way through. Remove the pit, then stuff it with some goat cheese. Just this past week I made these with a chipotle goat cheese which was also incredible, so a flavored version would work too!

Once the dates are all stuffed, wrapped half a slice of bacon around them. I don’t like the bacon to be layered – it can overlap slightly, but only use a half slice so it cooks through and gets crispy. I secure the bacon with a toothpick! This also makes it easy to serve the bacon wrapped dates. (more…)

Roasted Pecans

A few weeks ago, I made a double batch of these roasted pecans. I felt ridiculous when they all came out of the oven. We had jar after jar of roasted pecans sitting on our counter. I thought we’d be eating them for weeks! But, as it turns out, these roasted pecans are such a tasty snack that as soon as Jack or I polished off one handful, we’d inevitably circle back for more. Two days later, there wasn’t a pecan in sight. If you’re looking for an easy, festive treat to bring to a party or get-together this week, […]

In theory, this homemade garlic bread is the perfect side dish. It’s quick and easy to make, it goes well with a variety of main dishes, and it also happens to be delicious. So what’s the problem? Well, whenever I make this garlic bread recipe, it doesn’t really end up being a side. Of course, Jack and I can’t help but sample a few pieces straight from the baking sheet. By the time it reaches the table, we’ve already put a pretty good dent in it. And by the end of the meal, we’ve nearly polished off the whole batch. […]
