Have you ever made your own ham glaze? If not, it's time to give it a try! Making a homemade ham glaze is so easy and chance are you have all the ingredients for this glaze in your cupboards now. I'll also let you in on a little tip to getting a nice thick glaze on that ham! For this glaze, I used pineapple juice, brown sugar, and seasonings. I was cooking for a large group that included children so chose to keep it simple and sweet. Sweet pairs amazingly with a savory ham! I was really . . .
Well the snow has finally left Texas and it's not 105 degrees yet, so that means one thing: Spring is here! and spring=cake. right? For some reason, coconut has been associated with Easter. Does anybody know why? I'm dying to know. Is it because of those super rad coconut Easter bunny cakes my mom used to make? The eggs nests? Give me all the Easter bunny cakes and eggs nests. And cadbury eggs. And reese's eggs. And cadbury eggs. I used to make a strawberry coconut cake recipe . . .
Who doesn't like a good cream puff? They have kind of been my craving the past few months. Actually I have had severe cravings since Aubrey and Laurel made them for me like 7 months ago. I looove the puffy outside, and the creamy but not over powering rich centers, and of course any topping, or no topping is fine with me- you can't go wrong.For all those reasons, it is also why it is great brunch dessert. It's not too heavy or rich- you can go about your day not feeling like your have ruined . . .
The Boon Inc. Giveaway has ended! We would like to congratulate Leah Quinn!! you were our lucky winner. Please check your inbox from an email from Oh So Delicioso!! Fruit is just so refreshing no matter what time of day you eat it, but especially so in the morning. It's filling but not heavy, its sweet but with natural sweeteners, and its bursting with flavor (and vitamins)! Kadee's fruit salsa is a huge favorite of mine. So for the bunch we thought having individual servings would be . . .
sigh. The beach is wonderful. just looking at pictures of the beach relaxes you doesn't it? We were so excited when Jenna from Small Fry contacted us to collaborate with her on a Beach Easter Egg hunt. We'd do the food and she'd do the party/hunt kids would play, we'd all eat (ok maybe the adults more than the kids). We would get a chance to learn from the best, observe how they do what they do. AND it was at the beach on a beautiful day! So while we talk about food and DIY decor . . .
These cups.... oh these cups. Let me tell you, I had this grandiose idea to make these egg cups. But I was sure, POSITIVELY sure there was no way they would work in the end. I couldn't find the right plastic cups (I thought this kind would for sure crack when drilling) There were holes...everywhere...how are they not going to leak. c'mon. But, step by step they worked. Despite not finding the "right" eggs, these were awesome no cracklage when drilled. The hot glue really did hold the water in, . . .
These cucumber sandwiches where quite a hit at the Easter Beach Party with Small Fry and Land of Nod. How could they not be with those darling bunnies hopping around? .. see the entire Easter Collection from Land of Nod HERE. English Cucumber sandwiches are just about the perfect thing for a party. Light and refreshing, with a splash of mint, your guests will go crazy. The key to being successful with these sandwiches is getting as much water out of the cucumbers as you can. . . .
I saw this recipe and couldn't resist. Made them yesterday. I was reminded how simple and delicious they are. Quick and easy...perfect for an after school snack. Everyone needs a good no-bake cookie recipe. Kinda like how everyone needs a good chocolate-chip cookie recipe, only this is much easier! We LOVE no bake cookies around here. Most of the time they don't make it long enough to set up, they get scooped up with a spoon and eaten as quickly as possible. I know that a lot of people make . . .
