Doesn’t it look like something fiery is about to burst through the clouds? 👀 #itscomingforyou #areweintheupsidedown
I ❤️ carbs A. LOT. 😍 These will definitely be making another appearance in my kitchen 👌🏻 I think I need to try to do a cinnamon sugar variety, our other addiction from Porky’s. *True story* - There was a spell in 2015, in which I would get done volunteering in the kid’s classes at school and drive to Porky’s & get an order of the Cinna-Knots for me, myself, and I to enjoy in the pick up line. Every. Week. It was my reward for being a human Kleenex to 36 kidlets 😜 🍞 🥨 🥖 #myturquoisecounter #kingarthurflour #feedfeed #eeeeeats #homemadebread #yum #buzzfeast #buzzfeedfood #huffposttaste #foodphotography #thebakefeed #garlicbread #heresmyfood #madwwithkitchenaid #yahoofood #bakingsteel #steelnotstone #f52butter #f52grams #foodnetwork #garlicknots #carbs
Dessert 🍫🤤 Chocolate Crunch Peanut Butter Pie - a totally easy no bake dessert 🙌🏻 It starts with the crust of your choosing(I chose graham cracker), followed by a layer of peanut butter(that seriously has a stick of butter in it), and topped with a dark chocolate ganache with Rice Krispies mixed in. So, so good! I think I put the Rice Krispies into the ganache too quickly, I think it needed to cool more because the Krispies weren’t so krisp(sorry, I had to even though the misspelling is killing me 🤣) Or I might try corn flakes next time because they might hold up better in the ganache 🤔 #myturquoisecounter 🍫 #bobsredmill #contest #feedfeed 🍫 🍫 #feedfeed #chocolate #eeeeeats #huffposttaste #yum #forkyeah #foodphotography #gloobyfood #buzzfeast #buzzfeedfood #foodwinewomen #foodandwine #yummy #instafood #igfood #pioneerwoman #walmart #valrhona #peanutbutter #f52butter #f52grams
Newsflash!!! I made a different kind of pizza 🤣😜 Don’t worry though, I still made my precious buffalo chicken, too 🤪 This my version of a Hawaiian - maple glazed @boarshead_official ham, thinly sliced red onion, Serrano peppers, and fresh pineapple(none of that canned noise 👊🏻). It’s is so stinkin good!! The pineapple is more tart than sweet, the Serrano adds a nice burn, and it all complements the ham perfectly 👌🏻10/10 would definitely make again. In fact, I already have because I had made it last night and made another for lunch today 🐷🍍 💛 #myturquoisecounter #bakingsteel 🍍 🍍 🍍 #kingarthurflour #pizza #pizzanight #homemadepizza #steelnotstone #eeeeeats #buzzfeast #feedfeed #buzzfeedfood #thebakefeed #thecookfeed #huffposttaste #yum #foodphotography #madewithkitchenaid #thekitchn #f52grams #yummy #homemadebread
Decided to try something new tonight for pizza night. The kids LOVE the garlic knots from Porky’s Pizza so I decided to see if I could replicate them at home. I used my trusty @kingarthurflour pizza dough recipe and after they baked on my @bakingsteel , I tossed them in lots of butter(obvi 😜), chopped parsley, garlic, and @traderjoes Parmesan & Romano grated blend 🙌🏻👌🏻 They said they were better than Porky’s ✊🏻 They were super simple to make, so I highly recommend giving it a try if you like them 🤗 #myturquoisecounter #garlicknots • • • #feedfeed #thebakefeed #eeeeeats #huffposttaste #f52butter #yum #igfood #instafood #foodwinewomen #foodandwine #buzzfeast #buzzfeedfood #bakingsteel #madewithkitchenaid #homemadebread #garlic #f52grams #thekitchen #yahoofood #gloobyfood #hautecuisines #forkyeah
If you ever want to woo Weiland, make him Crème Brûlée 💖He is definitely my child that asks for the least and makes the least trouble so when he wants Crème Brûlée, he gets them - he’s so good that I’ve backed out of our driveway several times without him in the car because he’s so quiet in the car that I forget if he’s in there or not 😖🤣 I would never forget the other 2 are in the car 🤪🤭 One of the 1st things he wanted after the battery incident, once his 8 weeks of no food were up, was Crème Brûlée. And only @inagarten will do. I always add 2 whole vanilla beans to the heavy cream and he’s a very happy boy 🧒🏼💙 #myturquoisecounter #inagarten #illprobablyretakethepicswithbetterlight #stupiddaylightsavings * * * #feedfeed #foodnetwork #cremebrulee #thebakefeed #f52grams #thekitchen #yum #forkyeah #instafood #igfood #yummy #hautecuisines #wwigd #thatsdarling #madewithkitchenaid #madewithrodelle #yahoofood #gloobyfood #huffposttaste #buzzfeast #buzzfeedfood
17 years ago. It was raining on a Sunday and we were getting ready to start our lives together. The rain didn’t faze us at all because we knew it didn’t matter - rain or shine we were going to have a fabulous day because all the other stuff didn’t matter - just getting married did. We were surrounded by so much love and support 💖 We were so grateful for that day and for the 6,205 that have followed it. Thank you @jasonmapel , for making me your wife and for making me a mom. I’m so thankful I get to do this life with you 💕💘💓 #110401 #bestdancepartyever #ilovemycake
Jason had gotten a new BBQ a while ago that has a smoker, so I bought him @southernlivingmag Barbecue Guide for some inspo. It also had a dessert section, full of things I can’t wait to make. I started with their Ultimate Chocolate Pie 😍🍫 It starts with a chocolate cookie crust, then is topped with a dark chocolate pudding filling, followed by a semi sweet chocolate mousse layer, and topped with a chocolate whipped cream 🍫🍫🍫 It is by far, the best chocolate pie I’ve ever had 🙌🏻🙌🏻Each of the different chocolates totally come through. I can’t wait to work my way through the rest of the desserts in there - Cherry Pie Bars, I’m lookin at you 🍒 #myturquoisecounter #southernliving #southernlivingmag #bobsredmill #contest #feedfeed 🍫 🍫 #chocolate #chocolatepie #eeeeeats #huffposttaste #thebakefeed #yum #imsomartha #nytfood #foodwinewomen #yummy #instayum #igfood #food52 #f52grams #hautecuisines #yahoofood #gloobyfood #homemade #buzzfeast #buzzfeedfood #forkyeah #foodphotography #pioneerwoman #madewithkitchenaid
So J is in the midst of another vertigo attack(spell?episode?) which means we’re home. Which means I can cook/bake 🙌🏻 I had strawberries in the fridge and had had this @kingarthurflour Strawberry Swirl No Knead Brioche marked from their Spring 2018 #siftmagazine since well, spring 😜Friends, it did not go as well as I would have liked 😖🤣 First, I didn’t make homemade jam for the swirl #gasp I know 😂 Second, I was a tad too liberal with the jam inside. I also put some chunks of said strawberries on the inside. Those 2 contributing factors created a volcano type effect on the bread when it was in the oven. It was Vesuvius over here people! The jam bubbled out, the top of the bread literally exploded 🌋 Chunks of the top and the jam hit the bottom of the oven and the smoking began 🤦🏼‍♀️🌫💨 My parents had to bring J his van, since he couldn’t drive home when the vertigo hit, and stood with their mouths hanging open 🤣🤣 It was a disaster. However, this tale has a happy ending because it tastes fabulous. I’m definitely making it again but with less jam(and probably homemade) 🤣 Also, butter balls make me very happy 😊 💖 #myturquoisecounter #kingarthurflour #kafrecipe #brioche 🍓 🍓 #feedfeed #nokneadbrioche #homemadebread #thebakefeed #yum #strawberry #instagood #igfood #eeeeeats #yahoofood #yummy #forkyeah #huffposttaste #buzzfeast #buzzfeedfood #food52 #f52grams #thekitchn #heresmyfood #mywilliamssonoma
2 words. Fried. Pickles. 🙌🏻 Ok, now more words...the BEST fried pickles I’ve ever had. Better than Lucille’s, better than Chili’s(don’t @ me, we don’t have many southern choices in California 🤭😜) These were a recommendation from @thepioneerwoman via @farmgirlsdabble They have the PERFECT crust - it’s not just a beer batter(but there’s beer in it), it’s not as light as a tempura but it’s the perfect amount of batter and crunch 👌🏻 I like a little heft in my batter and I want it to stick on, not fall off after the first bite. These delivered in every way 🙌🏻 We made a mix of @bubbiespickles Bread & Butter Chips, Dipp Pickle Spears, and Dill Pickle Chips. Eden made PW’s Homemade Ranch Dressing and it’s drool worthy and definitely worth the small amount of effort to make it from scratch 🤤🤤🤤 #myturquoisecounter #pioneerwoman #friedpickles * * * #foodstagram #feedfeed #thebakefeed #eeeeeats #yum #forkyeah #f52grams #thekitchn #foodnetwork #yummy #instagood #instayum #igfood #heresmyfood #yahoofood #pickles #ranchdressing #buzzfeast #buzzfeedfood #comfortfood #kingarthurflour
Sooooo...my mom and I had an adventure this weekend. Flew to Texas on Saturday, hijacked my nephews to drive to Oklahoma(thank you James and @callmestadt for letting me and my pups crash your fabulous B&B),and came home a mere 14 hours later-start to finish 🤷🏼‍♀️🤭 So everybody, we are pleased to introduce Stormageddon*dark lord of All* Geronimo Blue aka Storm and his sister, Rosie-Dagoo Poppy River Peaches (we had a family vote and had to include a lot of fandoms-sorry Star Wars, you didn’t make the cut 🤪) but here’s looking at you #xfiles and #doctorwho #riversong #thelodger #rose #eleventhdoctor #closingtime #cybermen #welcomehomebabies #werecrazyandyourestuck 🤷🏼‍♀️🤪🤞🏻🐺🐕 #theadventuresofstormanddagoo
It’s Epic Sandwich Month over at @huffposttaste and I think this is a pretty epic sandwich 🙌🏻 Crunchy peanut butter, mascarpone, @valleyfig dried figs, and honey all melted together on @labreabakery Raisin Pecan Bread. It is the most decadent, yet comforting, sandwich I’ve ever made 😍 All of the textures - crunchy, tangy, sticky, sweet, chewy, warm, and melty - work so well together 🤗 10/10 highly recommend 🙌🏻🥪 #huffposttaste #myturquoisecounter #sandwich #sandwichmonth 🥪 🥪 🥪 #buzzfeedfood #buzzfeast #eeeeeats #f52grams #yahoofood #heresmyfood #instagood #igfood #picoftheday #gloobyfood #yum #sandwiches #figs #peanutbutter #yummy #instafood #forkyeah #foodwinewomen #foodie #foodnetwork #feedfeed #thebakefeed
Super fun night with light saber battles and sparkler fun 🎇 💥✨ *no fingers were lost in any of the fun* 🤣 #loveafullhouse 👭👬👫👬👭👬👫
When you force your children to take every photo pass photo and take part in every touristy activity there is available 🤣🤪🏝🌅 #noregrets #griswoldsdoparadise2018 #aulani #nobodywillrememberyou #actlikeatourist *Eden wants it noted that she was not properly warmed up for her pointe shoe pics(which I have more of) and to let Miss Sasha from dance know that she did not dance in any way* #notarulebreaker #had #ballet #worldballetday #had4dance #huntingtonacademyofdance
A recap of some of the awesome food we’ve had in Oahu(not shown-prime rib, roasted pork with the crunchiest skin EVER from the luau, the sushi and crab legs and endless buffet at Makahiki)I didn’t take very good food pics this trip because I was too busy eating 🤭🤤🤪 #griswoldsdoparadise2018 #aulani #dolewhip #hadtohavedrinksinpineapples #disneyfoodblog #disneyeats
The calm, quite literally, before the storm. We are being forced(and by forced, I mean boo hoo,we have to stay in paradise longer)to change our travel plans and ride out Tropical Storm Olivia here for a couple more days. So we are enjoying every second of the glorious view before we die 🤣😫😱🤭😝 #alwaysthegriswolds #griswoldsdoparadise2018 #seeyaontheflipside
Day 3 or 4(I seriously don’t know which days we are even on 😂) We went to where the road ended on our side of the island, past Makaha and Waianae. Then, we headed to the North Shore and Haleiwa. Can’t beat ending any day in the infinity pool, watching the sunset 🌅 (I’m saving all the food pics to post together 🤤) #griswoldsdoparadise2018 #aulani
Some of the fun going on. I *highly* recommend the Aulani Luau. It was breathtaking 🙌🏻😍 The story was fabulous, the performers were 💯, and the food was delicious(hello, pork skin bao bun 🤤) #aulani #griswoldsdoparadise2018 #hadtohaveanearpicintheresomewhere #somuchfun #kawaaluau
