Gluten Free Baked French Toast Casserole Recipe

Whenever there’s a holiday, you can be sure we’re incorporating food into it in a big way. One of our morning favorites is a baked French toast casserole. It’s perfect for Easter brunch, or Christmas morning (or pretty much any day that you’re craving a delicious breakfast). Over the years, we’ve adapted and tweaked an original recipe, and the last two years, have switched it …

Dip Me

Cate Mezyk - February 3, 2015

My husband is a great cook. His favorite day of the week to get in the kitchen is Sunday, because it gives him extra hours to smell what’s simmering. For Super Bowl Sunday, he took the reigns once again, and whipped up two classic dips for our friends, queso with meat, and buffalo chicken dip. They were so delicious that I knew I had to …

Orange Glazed Shrimp

Cate Mezyk - January 8, 2015

I made these shrimp on Christmas Day, and enjoyed them so much I made them again for New Year’s Eve! The super delicious marinade means no cocktail sauce necessary. They feel just special enough for a holiday appetizer, but not so much that you couldn’t make them on an average weekend. I love that they’re easy to make, and can be prepped ahead of time with …

Cate Mezyk - December 18, 2014

I recently went to a soup cook off, and knew I needed a killer recipe to make. I’m a wee bit competitive, so you know I’m going to bring my A game if there’s a prize on the line. Since I had just made my souper tasty (see what I did there? tee hee) white chicken chili recipe for this particular group of friends, I …

Right now it’s the season for making merry, and that includes all the fun treats to be had, right? Macy’s was so kind, and sent over a box full of fun. My kids got right to work, baking up some goodies in cute little shapes. A Mason jar packed with all you need to jump start your holiday baking is always such a fun gift …

Cate Mezyk - November 20, 2014

This Thanksgiving is a big one for both of the Wild Ruffle girls, as we’ll each be hosting in our homes for the first time! Though Tammy has hosted before, she just moved into her new home (yay!), and will be having her whole crew over there on the big day. And though in previous years, Cate always left hostess duties up to her fabulous …

Famous White Chicken Chili

Cate Mezyk - November 6, 2014

White chicken chili is a favorite of ours. Everybody in our home eats it happily, even my pickiest kids. I served it up on our weekend away to the loveliest of barns, and it was the perfect way to warm our bellies on a chilly (pun intended) fall day. Every time I serve this recipe to friends, I get asked for the recipe. It’s been …

Hot Apple Cider… With a Little Kick

Cate Mezyk - October 30, 2014

On Monday, I shared our barn getaway pics (if you haven’t seen them yet, you gotta check it out – it was an absolutely gorgeous spot!). Every fall weekend getaway needs a hot drink to warm chilled bones. A favorite of my friend Heather’s family, this recipe has a surprise ingredient in it – red hots! You can make a virgin or a grown up version – …
