I've been looking forward to this post for a while now! We were invited to share in the excitement of Martha Stewart's 7th season of Martha Bakes on PBS and give you a peek at one of her recipes - this Cranberry Tart. I don't know about you but aside from my mother's kitchen, I learned to cook from TV! I've spent many days watching various food celebrities whip up desserts and dinners. Watching the process and learning techniques has transformed my own culinary skills. I'm so looking forward . . .
Next week we have some BIG, exciting posts planned + some really great goodies. If you have been a loyal reader of OSD for a while you know that during the holidays we like to a big giveaway for you. Sometimes several separate big items, sometimes 1 grand giveaway. This year we are changing things up. It's not just a giveaway! It will be a whole week of tips, tricks, recipe on how to SERVE others through food! Serving We are surrounded by people all day everyday who are always in need of . . .
So I like pumpkin rolls, alot. Every fall I make oodles of them. Wrap them up and store them in the fridge, cut a slice or two for guests. Maybe a quick after school snack for the kids. They are awesome. Best part they are pretty simple to make. Pumpkin rolls make great gifts for the holiday's or as a dessert for a party! They are pretty simple to make as well, just mix up the batter and pour into a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake! Then invert onto a tea towel dusted with . . .
We recently had the opportunity to assist Megan, from E.Interiors in her collaboration with World Market. Megan is someone I love! She not only has impeccable style and taste but has a generous heart, is smart in business and loving mother & friend. World Market approached her for a holiday entertaining post and she asked if I would be interested in providing food! I couldn't turn her down. Over on her post you can find tips and tricks for entertaining during holiday, but for this post I . . .
Tis the season for pie!!!! With the holidays right around the corner I wanted to offer up an easy alternative to your traditional pie. A slab pie has all of the components of a regular pie, except it feeds a crowd. A slab pie is perfect for a big family gathering or a friends-giving. I created this recipe from start to finish with my KitchenAid Stand Mixer. My kitchenAid mixer is a staple in my kitchen. Besides cakes and cookies, I love to shred chicken and make dips and frostings in . . .
I grew up living next to my Grandma Moon, and she was an amazing cook. De.Lish. One of the recipes I was SURE to copy was her oatmeal raisin cookies. Just look at the ingredients and you'll notice these cookies have more than just cinnamon in them. Genius. Soft, cinamonny, spicy sweet goodness with the nutritional awesomeness of oats and raisins. The Husband is a chocolate-hater, so these cookies actually get made quite often. Extra bonus: your house smells like an oatmeal raisin candle . . .
This week we showcased a few recipes that were made in a 9x13 pan. the 9x13 pan is NOT just for cake mixes and casseroles - although we are certainly not apposed to those things either! We have a haa-uge list of recipes that were whipped up in our favorite item of bakeware. This will be a great post to pin or bookmark because we plan on adding to this list going forward! Or checkout our 9x13 tag for a blog roll of all of our 9x13 recipes. Below the links be sure to take a look at some of . . .
Tis the season for candy, treats, homemade caramel apples, pie and soo many delicous goodies. Halloween especially is focused all on the candy. So, while this pizza isn't 100% sugar free.... at least it has fruit! and you can sub the frosting for vanilla greek yogurt! It feeds a crowd, and throws together so fast! We are collaborating with JANE for a fun #trickortreat series! You can see much more on their instagram if you head over there. This treat is almost so easy it almost doesn't . . .
This sauce is a recipe that has been sittin' around in my cupboard for years. It's a classic, timeless perfect chocolate sauce. It's so purrrfectly chocolatey so to satisfy the cravings of your choc-o-holic needs, but not too rich for those who are *gasp* not inclined toward the chocolate things of this world. You will still be wrapped around this sauce's little finger. Top it on your ice cream. Top it on your cheese cake, make banana splits, or bottle it up and give it to your friends. (you . . .
Are you wondering where in the world the name of this dessert came from?! I grew up with my mom (and then me) making this dessert probably more than any other dessert in our house. It's got 4 layers, which is why it's called Barbershop Quartet! Weird, I know, but a lot more interesting than Lots of Chocolate and White Fluff, yeah? This is a pretty simple one to make, and even my chocolate-hating husband likes it. He claims the chocolate pudding doesn't taste like . . .
