Strawberry season is just getting started and I have a strawberry shortcake recipe that will leave you wondering how you have been without it all this time! This is a true shortcake recipe in that it is a quick, sweet biscuit-like cake that is crumbly and with a little sugary crunch filled with strawberry puree and sweet cream! It really is as heavenly as it sounds. Strawberry shortcakes make a great summer dessert that is light and sweet. Or, if you are in the mood, they make a fantastic . . .
Have you guy jumped in on the unicorn craze? I've seen unicorn hot chocolate, unicorn ice cream, unicorn toast - and a variety of other pastel rainbow foods lately. I'm a mom of three little boys, so the unicorn trend hasn't hit our household. BUT, I have a bad sweet tooth, so pretty delicious desserts are always up my alley. S'mores I have really fond memories of eating s'mores by the campfire as a kid. My family loved to camp and my sisters and I would try to perfectly toast our . . .
CLICK HERE for the Valentine's Giveaway! We're giving away a Blendtec, tieks (pictured below) and so much more! Coconut Rice is a wonderful way to change up your rice game. Really, after a while plain ol' rice gets kinda old! (brown or white) You can make this to go with BOTH savory and sweet meals. For instance I love to serve mine along side of my Lettuce Wraps, or the Mongolian Beef on top. It's also fabulous with the Rumbi Rice Bowls and the Hawaiian Haystacks. But top it with just some . . .
Everyone has a favorite treat that they grew up with that they feel is the "very best ever," and I'm no exception. My grandpa makes the best fudge. Each Christmas he would make several batches - some with nuts, some without. I always selected the variety without the nuts because I'm a purist when it comes to treats - I like my banana bread with no chocolate chips, and my fudge free from nuts. This last Thanksgiving my family came into town for the holiday. My mom brought a container of . . .
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! We are surrounded by people all day everyday who are always in need of something. . . .
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 . . .
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 . . .
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 . . .
