Right before baby Olivia was born I made a batch of these muffins and they have been a lifesaver for breakfast. I froze them individually and then microwave one for breakfast each morning. I love how in 30 seconds I can have breakfast so I can turn my attention to a hungry baby. They are full of flavor as well as carrots and zucchini to make them a little healthier.Read More
Did you know that you can use a grill just like an oven? Today I am using my Traeger to spend the day outside, grill and make dessert all at the same time.
I love entertaining and entertaining outside is even better. Today I am making an apple and blackberry galette with a rosemary crust. Perfect for a sunny fall day spent outside.Read More
I can’t get enough of fresh figs in the summer. They are one of the last truly seasonal ingredients and come in abundance in late summer and early fall. With their gorgeous colors and sweet centers, I love figs in this dessert because it shows off figs in all their fresh glory.Read More
What is it about banana bread that makes it so darn delicious. It is one of the few pastries/ desserts that I can't ever pass on. A warm piece of freshly baked banana bread is pretty hard to beat.Read More
To me, strawberry shortcake screams summertime. Like so many people I grew up eating strawberry shortcake - we even used to pick our own strawberries way back when.
We never made it by scratch but would instead buy shortcake cups from the grocery store (anyone remember those? They tasted like cardboard but we still ate them) then topped them with fresh strawberries and some Reddi whip. This recipe takes that version of strawberry shortcake up a notch but it is still super tasty and nostalgic.Read More
I love old school kitchy desserts. Desserts that aren't really that popular anymore but to me, reflect a more glamorous and fabulous time. Think Palm Springs in the 50s.Read More
I get asked all the time how I resist all the food that I make; the truth is I taste everything but try my hardest not to eat it all. I also never recipe test on an empty stomach because that is just asking for trouble. I can usually resist most sweet baked goods, plus I actually send them immediately to my husband's office to give it to the neighbors - it if it is in front of me, I will eat it.Read More
