So you made an amazing chocolate cake and now you need the best chocolate buttercream frosting recipe to slather over it. Well, here you go! This chocolate buttercream is rich, silky smooth, and devilishly good! It also works as the perfect chocolate frosting for cupcakes.

American Buttercream Frosting

This chocolate buttercream is considered an American buttercream.

This is the easiest and simplest type of buttercream to make; it requires minimal steps and ingredients. And truthfully a 6 year-old could make this recipe with ease.

Buttercream is essentially butter, or another form of fat, (sometimes people use shortening or a combination of both shortening and butter), sugar, and heavy cream whipped together until creamed.

You can add flavors into the buttercream such as chocolate, fresh fruit, fruit purees, and extracts.

You can get very creative when it comes to making buttercream. The flavor possibilities are endless!

Two chicken breasts topped with a creamy dijon mustard chicken sauce.

I’ve never been a fan of plain ole cooked chicken breasts. I’m much more of the “chicken WITH a sauce” type of gal. I find the sauce keeps the chicken interesting.

I’m here to tell you just how excited I am about this recipe! We’ve eaten this multiple times for dinner this past month. It’s one recipe you can count on for multiple reasons:

I’m constantly making foods and finding things that I LOVE and adore on every level. When I find something I love, I make it multiple times in the first month. Well I really went overboard because I made these 3 times in 9 days. We INHALED these easy baked oatmeal cups.

Maybe it was the melty chocolate chips on top? Or the sweetened shredded coconut and sliced almonds. Ultimately these taste like an oatmeal cake and I’m completely obsessed with how they turned out! (more…)

Overhead photo of a plate full of homemade pierogies with a bowl of sour cream to the side of the plate.

Potato and cheese pierogies have to be one of my top 10 most commonly craved foods. The first time I tasted a pierogi was 2 years ago when I made them for a client. The end result was mediocre, the filling lacked flavor and the dough was dense and heavy. Not to mention I was a bit overwhelmed by the complexity of this client’s recipe. But a year later I tackled the making of pierogies again, this time using my own recipe, and I was stunned by the difference in texture, flavor, and all around experience!

After making my crockpot grape jelly meatballs (and looooving them!) I decided I needed more easy meatball recipes. That’s when this recipe was born.

I invited my sister over to sample the meatballs, and she raved about them as did my husband. I even overheard him on the phone telling his dad how amazing these barbecue pineapple meatballs tasted!

It’s getting warmer these days, and to combat the heat I had to make a frozen dessert recipe.

Last year I made no churn Oreo ice cream, and homemade vanilla ice cream. If you haven’t made either of those yet, you need to. They’re easy and crazy good!

I see you rolling your eyes and I know what you’re thinking, “I can’t believe she put broccoli in a smoothie.” I’m here to put those skeptical thoughts to rest, broccoli in a smoothie works.

Good news: you can’t taste the broccoli.

Bad news: your children will like this smoothie and as a result they will want to drink all of it, leaving you with very little for yourself. So plan accordingly 🙂

There are a few things you should know before chucking a full handful of broccoli into your blender though, and we’re going to cover that right here.
