I love the holidays.  I don’t think that’s a surprise to anyone that knows me at all.  I love all things Christmas – the trees, decorations, parties, snacks, sweets, and company.  I may sound weird, but I always love to receive handmade gifts of some kind.  I think they add to the specialty of the […]

Apple-Butternut Squash Soup

Apple-Butternut Squash Soup | eat. snack. love!

Remember awhile back when I posted about buying the 40-pound box of apples from a local Lions club fundraiser?  Well, I needed to an outlet for those babies, so I was trying to find extra things to pop apples into.  Enter: the apple-butternut squash soup.  Perfect for winter and a family with a few too […]

Whoa, Baby

eat. snack. love!

Thanksgiving is over and it was fantastic.  With my husband and I both having families that live in the area, along with odd work schedules, we tend to run around like crazy people on an eating spree.  Honestly, I’m not sure how my regular pants held up in the last few years.  These maternity pants […]

That’s right, the title says it all!  I’m happy to share anything and everything I put on my Thanksgiving table.  I have to say, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday to host because I love everything that goes on the table and how it brings everyone together.  My family is pretty traditional.  We like to have […]

Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole

Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole | eat. snack. love!

I have decided single handedly that tater tots should be more of a staple in the world.  Ok, maybe that’s going a little too far, but in all seriousness, I’ve always been a tot fan and when I find dishes to use them in, I’m pretty much sold.  This dish is no different. I’m in […]

Biscuits & Sage Sausage Gravy

Buttermilk Biscuits & Sausage Gravy | eat. snack. love!

A while back, I posted about homemade buttermilk biscuits, which reminds me of both breakfast and Sir Mix-a-Lot.  These babies are the best way to start your day, but are skyrocketed when they’re covered in this sage sausage gravy.  It’s very simple, you don’t have to use a package, and absolutely delicious.  My husband really […]

Happy November!

Happy November!  It’s officially my favorite time of the year.  I’m a sucker for fall for many reasons.  Let me count the ways: 1.  I love all things caramel + apple.  This means caramel, apples, caramel apples, caramel apple cider, apple pie (with caramel), apple crisp…you see where I’m going with this.  Every year, I […]

Smoked Salmon Cream Cheese

Smoked Salmon Cream Cheese | eat. snack. love!

I really had high hopes for October.  I actually had a plan to call is Crock-tober because I wanted to be using my crockpot like crazy.  Unfortunately, Mother Nature has decided to give us here in the Northwest really mid temperatures and some even nearing 70 degrees.  I understand how whiny that must sound, especially […]
