Souper Bowl Sunday ~ Lasagna Soup

Lasagna Soup

Welcome to a special edition of Souper Bowl Sunday! If you remember, a few years back I did a “Souper Bowl Sunday” series and featured a different soup each week? Well now that the weather is cooler I’m back for a special edition! The weather is cooling down and it’s not too warm out to have soup. There are days where we still have to use the air conditioner, but overall it’s pretty nice outside. When I leave for work in the morning I love that I’m not sweating as soon as I step foot out of the door!

One of my favorite comforts foods is Lasagna. It’s always packed with so much flavor and there are always tons of leftovers to have for lunch the next day or to freeze for later. There are so many different things you can add to change up Lasagna so it’s not always the same. One of my favorite things to do is to add ground Italian sausage and spinach to my Lasagna. The sausage adds so much more flavor and the spinach gives you those extra nutrients!

I came across this Lasagna Soup and knew that I had to make it. I made something similar once before – Meatball Soup. But I had these cute little Mafalda noodles so I knew they’d work perfectly! If you don’t have those you can just use the broken up lasagna noodles or feel free to use any other kind of noodle.

This is the perfect soup to eat while watching Football! Go Eagles!! [Read more...]

Homemade Double Chocolate Cake Donuts

Six Donuts

More often than not, we’ve been going to Reading Terminal Market on Saturday mornings to pick up donuts from  our favorite donut place here in Philly ~ Beilers Donuts. I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing these donuts are. You may have seen me post some pictures on Instagram of the different flavors that I’ve tried from there.  If you just take a look at it you’ll see quite a few pictures and I think they are pretty drool worthy! LOL. I’m always trying some different flavors but my other half sticks with the same flavor every single week. The Triple Chocolate Donut. It’s a chocolate donut, with chocolate frosting with chocolate chips. Wow. That’s a lot of chocolate! [Read more...]

Fudgy Brownies

Let’s talk about brownies. I don’t know about you, but I prefer brownies to be nice and fudgy. I like cake, but I don’t like cakey brownies. So I set out on a mission to find the Fudgiest Brownies on the planet and you know what? I think I found them! These brownies were so fudgy and SO easy to make. One bowl people. One bowl and a wooden spoon. That’s all it takes.  [Read more...]

Salted Caramel Apple Pie Bars

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for Fall. It’s my favorite season and it’s way too short, in my opinion. It seems like we go from 90 degree Summer days to 30 degree Winter days. It just seems like if you blink you miss the entire Fall season! What’s better than a nice crisp October morning when you can see the leaves changing and smell Apple Pie baking in the oven? Pretty much nothing! Okay…maybe eating an Apple Cider donut at a local orchard. But my point is I love apples and pumpkins and the pretty leaves! I love Pumpkin Spice season at Starbucks! That means I can drink my favorite drink – a Pumpkin Spice Misto. If you haven’t had it, make sure you try it. It’s half brewed coffee, half steamed milk and Pumpkin Spice syrup. To. Die. For. I’m always super sad when the girls at my local Starbucks tell me there isn’t any more Pumpkin Spice left. [Read more...]

Peanut Butter Oreo Swirl Ice Cream

Peanut Butter Oreo Swirl

As we wrap up summer, I wanted to share some AMAZING ice cream that I made. Have you seen those Peanut Butter Cup Oreo Cookies? When I saw them I knew that I had to incorporate them into some homemade ice cream. It would be wrong not to. So I used my favorite vanilla ice cream recipe and I added in the crushed up Peanut Butter Cup oreo cookies and a peanut butter sauce to swirl in there. And I have to say this came out better than I ever expected! So here we go – Peanut Butter Oreo Swirl Ice Cream! [Read more...]
