Turkey Tamale Pie

     I have some news that I haven't told you yet... I got a new job!  Of course a new job means lots to learn and a different schedule.  I will be spending a lot less time on the interstate, which is a relief.  However everything feels a little extra hectic right now.  Full disclosure... it's not just the job, there's also an upcoming move for my parents which involves a big remodel my husband is spearheading, we're hosting a chili cookoff, there's a wedding (and shower etc.) for my little sister, and a little dude that lives in my house that is so superdy duper excited about all of the upcoming holidays.  The last thing I want to do is shortchange him on something he is so looking forward to while we are in the most magical years.

Pizza Tuscana #SundaySupper

      It's pizza day!  It's pizza day!  The Sunday Supper tastemakers are celebrating pizza today and I just had to join in.  The problem with sharing pizza recipes is I always just throw whatever I have on there.  There is not measuring, just adding a bit of this and a bit of that.  I love the traditional combinations, we tend to go with ham, green peppers and mushrooms a lot  We also love the different, BBQ, white, bacon and eggs, and of course buffalo chicken.

Sourdough Pizza Crust

     I have been wanting to share this recipe with you for quite some time... but our pizzas always disappear so quickly and I never measure what goes on top... so it is hard to post.  But it is high time I tell you how we love to make our dough.  Afterall, pizza is pizza and we need to be able to make lots of it!

Hey everyone and welcome back to the 59th week of Throwback Thursday!

Whole Wheat Banana Bread

      It is the end of the Cake Slice Year.  So this  is the last bake from Maida Heatter's Cakes.  I say that with really mixed feelings.  I have really enjoyed almost every single thing I've made from the book.  I have really enjoyed seeing what everyone else made as well.  As much as I love a cookbook with pictures, I have enjoyed the creativity not having something to model you cake after has given us all.  But I am REALLLLLLLLLLY looking forward to the new book.  I am actually baking my first cake from it as I am typing this. How's that for multi-tasking?! I can't wait to tell you all about it, but I am not allowed to reveal the book until next month.  So hold on to your seats!

French Silk Brownies #Choctoberfest

I received product in exchange for writing this post, but all opinions are my own.

     It seemed like it was about time I make something unabashedly rich and chocolaty for Chocotoberfest.  Don't you agree?  I wanted something that really shows my love for all things chocolate.  Something that really scream me.  Something dangerously good.  But I just couldn't decide weather to make something dark, gooey and fudgy or creamy, whipped and delicious. So I incorporated both!

You're welcome!

Great Grandma's German Chocolate Cake with Broiled Coconut Frosting #Choctoberfest

       I never had the pleasure of knowing my Great-Grandma Peggy.  But all of the stories I have heard about her make her seem like a spunky yet classy lady.  I know my Great-Grandpa Buchsbaum was head over heals for her and it seems like they had quite the life together.  My Maw-Maw, her daughter and my maternal grandmother, recently sent a few more family recipes for me to try.  Of course I couldn't wait to give this cake a go!
