Blackberry and Apple Crumble

Blackberry & Apple Crumble

If someone told you, Quick, name three Irish desserts!, my guess is that you’d name something with Guinness or Bailey’s Irish Cream.

Or something green, because Irish or not, any green treats are fair game for St. Paddy’s Day.

Friends, I have a new dessert idea. (more…)

Pecan Linzer Cookies with Cherry Filling

Does anyone else remember being in elementary school and literally spending days hunting around for the perfect Valentine’s Day cards for your classmates?

Everyone used to have to give a card to everyone – boy or girl – no matter if we liked them or not.

(Which of course was good so that no one felt left out…but it left serious problems when it came to choosing the perfect card. It was a fine line between finding a pretty, flowery card for the girls without having it be too sappy and endearing for the boys. Ahhh, to have the problems of a fifth-grade girl again, lol.)

Chicken Alfredo Garlic Bread Pizza

How many of us have childhood memories of garlic bread pizza? I sure do. It was all the rage when I was growing up, but it’s literally been over a decade since I’ve had it.

I recently saw this lovely recipe from Mother Thyme and suddenly the ‘90’s came flooding back to me, leaving me with a fierce craving for a cheesy garlic bread pizza like you wouldn’t believe. (more…)

How does your family do Thanksgiving dinner?

Pot luck-style with everyone bringing a dish to pass? Or maybe the person hosting makes everything and someone else hosts the next holiday?

In my family, dinner is always at my mom’s house, and she and I make everything together (except for the turkey, which my mom brines and my dad roasts).

We like to have an assortment of sides to please everyone because everyone has a different favorite. And it seems like there is always at least one person who is on a new diet or who found out that they are intolerant to something, and we also like to have a dish that fits their way of eating.

Enter this pretty little number. (more…)

Anyone else remember Swiss Mocha-flavored soft-serve growing up? It was one of my favorite flavors, and is definitely worthy of a healthier makeover in popsicle form.

So recently, that’s exactly what I did.

And I have a funny story about these popsicles… (more…)

Crunchy Asian Slaw

There is an absolutely killer Asian slaw recipe floating around the internet; in fact, I’d even guess that many of you have had it.

I’ll admit that I’ve had it, and more than once. It somehow makes an appearance at almost every summer party I attend (and I promise I’m not the one who brings it, lol).

It has tasty things like sesame seeds, almonds, scallions, and soy sauce. After requesting the recipe from a friend, I discovered that it also has pretty generous amounts of butter, oil, sugar, and even ramen noodle seasoning mix. That last ingredient is not only high in sodium, but also has MSG. I was less than thrilled when I realized that the slaw I loved so much didn’t love me back at all.

So yeah, I was done with that.

But I still love a good slaw with Asian flavors. (more…)
