I know we are well into the new year, but this is my first post of 2016 so….Happy New Year! My slow down in blogging is entirely because of this. I work full-time, and I used to spend my free time daydreaming about (and then making, photographing, and writing about) cookies and breads and cakes…now most of my free time is spent researching baby things and attempting to sleep.  Growing a baby takes a lot of energy!  I’m still around, just won’t be posting as frequently.  But when I do post, the recipes are definitely going to be some of my favorites!  Like this Chocolate Chip Sweet Potato Bread.  I have already made this three times this year!  We absolutely love it – it is quickly becoming a breakfast favorite. …

Stuffed Mushrooms are such a classic party food. They are the perfect passed appetizer – they look pretty on a platter, can be eaten in one bite, and are absolutely delicious! So I thought why wait for a party to make stuffed mushrooms? Why not just make a platter of them for TheBetterHalf and myself? And that’s exactly what I did tonight!

TGIF! After our delicious birthday dinner last night, TheBetterHalf and I are just chilling at home tonight and giving our stomachs (and our wallet) a break! But I still wanted to whip up something delicious and special for us to enjoy and these stuffed mushrooms were the perfect thing. Bonus – they are SO easy to prepare! Plus, they are gluten free thanks to cracker crumbs made from Breton gluten free crackers!

And I want to give you 12 boxes of Breton Gluten Free Crackers so that you can try this recipe yourself! Scroll to the bottom of the post and enter to win!

Ok I know what you’re thinking right now – Broccoli? But what about the donuts and cookies and chocolate peanut butter anything? Don’t worry, they are coming soon (I may or may not have made these last night…). But I just HAD to tell you about this broccoli. Why?

Because it is the absolute best broccoli I have ever had. In fact, it is the best veggie I have ever had – at a restaurant or in my own kitchen. I’m not exaggerating. This stuff is amazing. It even converted TheBetterHalf into a broccoli lover, and he had previously not been a fan of the healthy green vegetable. Plus it is so simple to make – there are only 5 ingredients, and that is counting salt and pepper!…

Candied Sweet Potato Casserole

Candied Sweet Potato Casserole | chezcateylou.com

It is Thanksgiving Week, Day 4! Time for some potatoes, because what is Thanksgiving without at least two types of potatoes.  I love traditional mashed potatoes (smothered in gravy of course) but since that recipe is fairly basic, I decided to make sweet potatoes. There are so many ways to prepare sweet potatoes, but I went for a candied sweet potato casserole topped with glazed pecans!  You could top this one with marshmallows instead if you are so inclined, but TheBetterHalf is not a marshmallow fan.  He actually said “It’s Thanksgiving, not summer camp.” So that’s that.  …
