We are obsessed with our Sheet Pans. They work hard, are easy to care for, cost very little, and make your life easier. And our current favorite is the Sheet Pan Dinner. Yes, an entire dinner made in one pan.
We have a lot of love for our Sheet Pans around here. They are the workhorse of the kitchen. They are used for much more than cookies… and my current favorite use for them is cooking my entire dinner on one sheet pan. This recipe is on current rotation at least once a month in our house.

As the weather chills, and we spend more of our nights indoors, it’s fun to make food that also creates an experience, and a memory! Taking the time to slow down and enjoy something tasty together can be a fun tradition for all ages.
That’s why we love our hot chocolate on a stick. Take a cube of creamy, delicious chocolate and slowly melt it in a warm cup of milk. Sit around stirring, sipping, and enjoying. The food and the company.
This decadent sauce is a crowd-pleaser and a late night temptation. It’s easy to whip up, and fun to share. Try it on pancakes, over cake, ice cream, and even mixed into a cup of hot chocolate.
Have fun trying to resist pouring this over just about everything. And enjoy this taste so reminiscent of summer days during the heart of winter. Sure to boost your mood instantly.
Stuffing is the iconic partner to the Turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. This stuffing really accentuates the warm flavors of fall and uses all the right herbs to make you feel back in Grandma’s kitchen. Fresh rosemary, thyme, sage and parsley. But we’ve mixed it up with large pieces of sausage, crsipy pieces of bread, and of course the perfect amount of smokey flavor from our favorite Traeger Grill.
Around here we like to think that Turkey is a protein we can enjoy all year long. And when you simplify the whole process by cooking just a turkey breast, it takes all the pain and effort away from a whole turkey, and you’ll end up with a perfectly moist, tender, delicious piece of meat.
Okay, confession, we definitely took the easy way out here and smoked a purchased pie. There are a million things to do for Thanksgiving, and making our pies is usually a tradition we love and look forward to every year. But sometimes ease and convenience wins over traditions.
We don’t take our gravy lightly. It might was well come from fresh meat drippings, or not exist at all. Until now, we just didn’t think it was possible to create that kind of flavor without having cooked a roast or whole turkey, but with the right flavorings and herbs, you can get pretty darn close.
Give us a minute to convert you to the goodness that is Smoked Broccoli. I’ve always been the kind of eater who enjoys a plate full of vegetables. And that love for vegetables only deepens when the weather turns cool, and I roast every vegetable I can think of in the oven. Cauliflower, check. Carrots, check. Sugar snap peas, check check (try them!). And broccoli, I’ve always loved roasted broccoli. Then we smoked it. I’m forever changed.
