These buffalo chicken nachos are di-vine, and I guarantee your friends will give you lots and lots of hugs if you make these for them. The buffalo ranch sauce drizzled on top takes these nachos to the next level!

I’m finally back in the kitchen! Although I’m still healing from my gum procedure last week, I’m thankfully able to eat soft, solid foods. Of course, I missed eating Mexican food, so I made these deliciously cheesy enchiladas. This recipe is very similar to these enchiladas, but I switched it up a bit and added corn, beans and avocado. Yum!

Considering these are called buckeye brownies, I had to take the opportunity to use an Ohio State backdrop. Go Bucks!!

Caramel corn whoopie pies…YUM, right?! My mom found this recipe in Cuisine at Home last year and every time we bring the whoopie pies to a party, they’re a hit. The fluffy, cornbread-esque cookie tastes even more incredible paired with the caramel filling. These are a must-make dessert, I promise!

I’m off to New York tomorrow for work and can’t wait to eat my way through the city. First stop? Shake Shack, of course!
