I’ve never actually eaten a “real” Sloppy Joe. In the years before I stopped eating meat, they were never on our dinner table. I didn’t feel like I was missing anything because, honestly, their name and appearance kind of turned me off. But when a friend tells me that I absolutely have to try a recipe, I listen. And now I’m telling you, they may not look pretty but...
Fourth of July Desserts: Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
When you’re putting the final touches on your Fourth of July barbecue this weekend, don’t forget the dessert! These festive Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries are so good, they might not make it out to the picnic table:
Creamy Chocolate Gelato
I usually don’t share recipes that require special equipment to make, but this chocolate gelato is the exception. If you do not have an ice cream maker, stop what you are doing and purchase one immediately! Trust me, you will thank me for it after one creamy bite.
Easy Rhubarb Bars
I love rhubarb and am lucky to have a booming crop in my backyard. Whipping up a batch of rhubarb bars seemed like the perfect treat for a Friday afternoon.
Balsam Gin Cocktail
Even though Christmas was the inspiration for this festive cocktail, I think it’s equally suited for summer weather. Made by infusing simple syrup with fir needles, keep your eye out for Balsam Firs the next time you’re on a hike and you’ll be sipping this tasty treat in no time!
The Perfect Mother’s Day Dessert
Mother’s Day is Sunday and I couldn’t think of a better recipe to share than one from a mother!
Last summer, my dear friend shared a piece of his mom’s famous Strawberry Delight and I had to have the recipe. A dessert staple in his house growing up, this is the perfect treat to kick off spring and it’s simple enough to make for Mom this weekend.
Spiced Pumpkin Donuts
Did you know that it’s easy to make donuts at home? I recently figured this out and have been baking them ever since! This batch of Spiced Pumpkin Donuts was a huge hit on a recent Girl’s Weekend:
Yummy Fudge Cookies
Sometimes a girl needs a cookie, at least this girl does. If you find yourself in a similar situation, you can’t ask for an easier recipe than this one:
Orzo Pasta Salad
Simple flavor combinations always taste the best to me and this recipe is the perfect example. Orzo Pasta Salad has been a staple in our house for years. The combination of fresh dill, scallions, feta and lemon juice add a lightness that make it perfect for warm summer days. We take this on camping trips, on picnics, and have used it when entertaining. I’ve never met a person that...
Easy Spicy Noodles
I’ve said it before, I love a simple recipe that’s full of flavor. This recipe has been on my list for a while and one bite made it a new favorite. Now that the ingredients are in my pantry, I expect Sriracha Soy Sauce Over Egg Noodles to be one of my go-to dinners:
Simple and Satisfying Mexican Casserole
This simple recipe is full of possibility. Starting with basic ingredients, this meal can be customized to meet the tastes of every household. It makes a satisfying dinner and only improves as leftovers. So pull up a fork and get ready for some Mexican Casserole!
Spinach Artichoke Quinoa Casserole
Who says eating healthy can’t taste good? This week’s recipe includes quinoa, a superfood that is both high in fiber and high-quality protein. Quinoa (KEEN-wah) is 100% whole grain, but is technically the ancient seed of a leafy plant related to spinach. It’s also gluten-free! Without further ado, I would like to introduce you to Artichoke Spinach Dip’s healthy cousin...
