shortbread cookies // coconut + macadamias

Coconut Macadamia Nut Cookies

These cookies, THESE cookies are so freakin' amazing. Before posting I ended up testing this recipe about 5 times and they were spot on 4 out of 5 times.....the first time around, I attempted a gluten free version and that was a total fail, it didn't even make it to the freezer phase of the recipe. Then I moved onto the good ol' all purpose flour and there was not turning back- they were perfect.

Yum

triple nut butter // pecans, cashews + almonds

Triple Nut Butter

We loooooove our nut butters - no lie. Between Justin, Brody and I we probably go through about a jar a week. Overnight oats, farina, celery and peanut butter, waffles and nut butter, english muffins with nut butter and banana...the list goes on and on.

When I have the motivation I like to make my own. It is super simple, and every time I whip up a batch I think to myself why on earth I don't do this more often.

A quick roast and blend and you have yourself a nut butter. A nut butter where you control the ingredients, texture and amount.

kitchen IQ + So Delicious Brunch! // Banana Pancakes

Banana Pancakes // Brunch with Kitchen IQ + So Delicious
At our house breakfast or brunch is a favorite. For us, a breakfast that includes a Mimosa automatically becomes Brunch.

This post combines my two favorite things: Banana Pancakes + Mimosas.  
This my friends, is the perfect start to any Sunday.

Who actually needs an excuse to day drink, I didn't think so.

chili // my go to recipe

chili // my go to recipe
Chili is always on my weekend meal rotation, typically made on a Sunday when it can simmer away on the stove early afternoon just in time for an early dinner. The beauty about chili , 9 times out of 10 you always have the ingredients on hand to cook up a batch.

Sometimes we serve with cornbread, over rice or elbow noodles but my favorite way to enjoy a bowl is with a handful of tortilla chips for scooping. Scoop, eat and repeat.
