First of all, does anyone else think the Instagram algorithm makes things awkward sometimes? I'll be scrolling through my feed when I come across a photo that I love. I give it a double tap, only to discover that it was from 2 weeks ago. Makes me look like a total creeper! Do any of you feel like that?
Second, I've got a dynamite recipe for One-Pot Sausage and Veggie Rice. Yes, it's Monday, and I don't think any of us feel like washing more dishes than we need to.
Go grab the details on the blog (link in bio)!

Have you ever tried to make popcorn over the stove, only to end up with a pan of burnt kernels? I've got you covered. Stovetop popcorn is super easy, but you MUST follow my directions carefully. Go grab the tutorial over on @thepioneerwoman's @pwfoodfriends - link in bio!
PS - I shared how much butter I like to put on my popcorn (hint: it's nearly a stick). #ButteredSideUp #pwfoodfriends #havealittlepopcornwithyourbutter #moviesnacks #popcornlover

Are you bored with your breakfasts? Well, I've got 3 ideas for omelette fillings over on @thepioneerwoman's @pwfoodfriends. This was my personal favorite: Tex-Mex!

If there's one snack that's difficult for me to stop eating, it's Homemade Salted Caramel Corn. Seriously, this is so addicting. Perfect for munching while you cozy up and watch something fun or read a book.
Grab the recipe in the blog archives! Link in bio.
What snack is difficult for YOU to stop eating? Also, what shows do you enjoy on Netflix? I got a free trial, but I'm overwhelmed by everything (I like to watch things that are PG or G, unless I can watch it on Vid Angel - yep, I'm an old fuddy duddy). #ButteredSideUp #caramelcorn #homemadefood
So you think you hate Brussels Sprouts, hmmm? Have you ever tried ROASTED Brussels sprouts? They are scrumptious! You could totally top them with Parmesan cheese if you so wish. Man, I gotta remember to do that next time!

You guys...there's officially less than a week of summer left! 😩 It definitely feels and looks like fall already here in Northern Minnesota, but I don't want to call it until it's official.
You could squeeze in one more homemade ice cream before Sep. about this Tiramisu Ice Cream? It's made with creamy mascarpone cheese, coffee, and Kahlua.

You know what's a major disappointment? A DRY sandwich. I hate it when I order a sandwich or burger at a restaurant and there's nothing spread on it. Anyone with me?
I've got 6 ideas for what to spread on your sandwich to take it to the next level.
You can head over to @pwfoodfriends, or tap @ericaleakastner and hit the link in my bio if you hate dry sandwiches as much as I do! Make sure to leave a comment on my blog with your favorite sandwich spread. 😊

Pesto is kind of like a secret flavor boosting weapon. It really packs a punch. Stir it into some pasta along with chicken, tomatoes, and sundried tomatoes and you've got yourself a delicious pasta salad. 😋 You can also freeze it for long-term storage.
You can grab the (easy) recipe for this homemade pesto in the blog archives. Clickable link in bio!
#sponsored NEW POST: Overnight French Bread + A Care Package with @bobsredmill! You guys, this is one of my favorite loaves of bread to make. It's so easy, saves you time, and turns out beautifully again and again. I love waking up and sliding this loaf into the oven for super fresh bread.

Summer is aaaaalmost over (doesn't it feel like fall as soon as September rolls around?), so it's time to think about preserving the last of summer's bounty. Even if you're horrible at canning (so am I), you can totally handle making this peach jam. It's so easy, and kind of like bottling up a bit of summer for the cold months.
You can grab the recipe over in the blog archives (link in profile).

NEW POST on Buttered Side Up: How to Make Croutons Over the Stove! I love homemade croutons, but I don't like turning on my oven in the summer unless I have to.
I've got a tutorial/recipe on the blog (link in profile).
If you're a fan of Dutch Baby/German Pancakes, you're going to love this dessert: Raspberry Clafoutis! So eggy and rich and studded with tart raspberries. 😋 Grab the recipe in the blog archives (link you-know-where). #ButteredSideUp #raspberry #summerdessert
NEW POST: Homemade Ranch Dressing! I used to think ranch dressing was one of those things that was impossible to recreate at home. Well, I was wrong! And it's actually really easy. You probably have all of the ingredients in your kitchen already!
