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 . . .
Growing up my mom would make these butterscotch pull apart on Christmas morning and on Easter morning. They were always a perfect perfect special addition to her egg soufflé. Make-Ahead Breakfast I love to serve these for brunches and baby showers too! They are a make ahead food, so you aren't scrambling during the hustle bustle, but end up with a delicious dish. Use frozen rolls as a base. I prefer the Rhodes brand, but have found them difficult to find these days. They really are . . .
With Easter morning around the corner, I thought I would share our breakfast tradition of egg souffle. I've shared this recipe on the blog before, but wanted to pull it forward for the upcoming holiday. Holiday Traditions Growing up my mom would ALWAYS make this meal on Easter and Christmas morning. As an adult I've continued this tradition and always look forward to that little reminder of home on the holidays. Not only is this meal special and delicious - but all the work in done the . . .
I don't drink, but I always want something special to ring in the new year. Something bubbly and different. Something in a fancy glass. So - I came up with this idea. Not only is this mock champagne kid (and adult) friendly, but it is delicious and perfect for that special occasion. This New Years Eve try this bubbly beverage with your family or your festive party. Mock Champagne is a cinch to whip up! There are only three ingredients in the recipe. You heard me right - three . . .
Have you ever had a steamer before? Do you like them? I kinda do. If you don't know what a "steamer" is.. it's basically milk that has been heated with added flavor. I once-upon-a-time worked in a Sandwich Shop.. Tony's in Walla Walla, WA. (best panini's if you are in the area). Anyhow they had a little coffee bar that we would experiment with making all sorts of concoctions. I loved to make steamers, the milk was the perfect base for any crazy flavor mix I was in the mood for. Now I get my . . .
I just love warm cidery drinks. They don't leave me as heavy and calories down like I feel after a cup of hot chocolate (don't get me wrong there are many times when a frothy hot cocoa is calling my name too), I just feel warmed and refreshed. It's even better when a blanket and or book (or my favorite TV show hehe ) is involved. My cute friend, who is also gave me this cranberry salsa recipe to share, made this Cranberry Cider for a church event last Thanksgiving. The other day when I was . . .
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 . . .
Christmas is creeping up on us - and I am frantically trying to finish up all of my shopping and wrapping. Infact - today is Super Saturday and there are lots of good sales going on for the last minute shopper. Stocking stuffers are always last on my list, however I always enjoy filling my family's stocking with treats, and small items - and always an orange! Today I wanted to share a few stocking stuffer ideas (or hints) for the foodie in your life. Stocking Stuffers For the Busy . . .

Someone very wise once said that a party without cake is just a meeting. Well, Julia Childs, I couldn't agree more! And chocolate cake is never a bad thing, especially when it's pretty and festive and makes you ohso happy it's the holidays so you can top your cake with things like peppermint sticks and rosemary wreaths. I can't have a party and not have a cake. My go-to the past several parties I've had has been this Salted Caramel Chocolate Cinnamon Cake because it's absolutely . . .
