Get to know Abbey Co.!

As a blogger I think it is important to check in with yourself sometimes - who am I, why do I write, what do I want to write about, and so on. Since it has been a while since I have done something like this, I decided to do a little 'get to know me' post so you can learn more about what inspires my blog and the type of content I want to bring to you - my readers! I hope you enjoy, and thank you so much for following along!

My Favorite Monkey Bread Recipe

Trying new recipes is the thing to do right now, apparently! But honestly, why not? For us non-essential workers, we are no longer commuting and have hours of extra at-home time right now, even if working a full day at home. So why not take that extra time and turn it into something delicious, like this Monkey Bread recipe? I know you guys have that Costco stock of bulk yeast and flour, haha! Have fun!

20 Fun Ideas to Pass Time at Home

Schools are closed. Everything is closed. Everything is cancelled. Now, families are faced with the struggles of entertaining and educating their children, while staying home to safely isolate. That is why my daughter and I came up with this fun list of twenty (that's right, 2-0) fun ideas to pass time at home this next month or so, while we do the right thing and allow for situations to return to normal. Let's dream, get creative, and have fun!

My Recipe for the Easiest Alfredo Sauce

With all this time spent at home lately, we are attempting to make the most of things with some good home cooking. Not only does some comfort food do the soul good, but it also is pretty darn affordable to make. This Alfredo sauce recipe is mostly milk, butter, and flour... all super cheap ingredients! You can make this to go with pasta, chicken, or even scoop it up with some nice warm bread. It is so creamy and delicious and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Pot ‘O Gold Pancakes – A Fun St. Patty’s Day Breakfast

I love celebrating holidays with festive food! It adds color to your home and is an easy way to create fun for all. This breakfast idea simply incorporates an easy pancake recipe with some food coloring and creates a cute little rainbow for the leprechauns in your house. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

What’s cooking, Abbey Co.? My favorite cookbooks at the moment (spoiler alert, they are vegetarian!)

Just because a food is entirely plant-based absolutely does not mean it is flavorless or unfulfilling! But often times people think that about vegetarian cooking, but I think they just don't know where to start! So, I am sharing two of my favorite vegetarian cookbooks that helped spring me into a more vegetarian lifestyle at home.
