How to Set Your Kitchen on Fire

Okay okay, I didn’t really set my kitchen on fire. But I did fill my house up with smoke right as my girls were arriving at the house for dinner last week. Note to self: butter cascading out of a baking dish and onto the bottom of your oven will in fact cause a copious amount of smoke to pour forth into your kitchen.

So why did I have so much butter in the oven? Well, you see, I decided to embrace my inner Paula Deen last week and bake Butter Dipped Bread from The Country Cook. It. Was. Delicious. But then, the ratio of butter-to-other-ingredients in this bread is kind of overwhelmingly amazing so the deliciousness is no surprise. 🙂

I actually doubled the recipe which meant I had TWO sticks of butter in that pan. I’m guessing that’s why the spillage happened. 😉 And along with butter dipped bread, I made baked ravioli, but it was such a simple meal that I almost hate to call it a recipe. So let’s just call it a “meal idea”, haha!

My absolute favorite jarred spaghetti sauce is the one from Aldi. Store-bought spaghetti sauce doesn’t really sit high on my list of favorite things to eat, but there is something about the one that Aldi makes. It is SO good, haha! I’m not being paid for this little snippet – it’s just one of those things I thought I’d share in case you are in a hurry to make dinner one night and need a jarred sauce. Try Aldi’s! 🙂

Here’s to hoping I don’t set anything on fire for tonight’s dinner. 😉 Happy Thursday!
Love Rach
