If you’re looking to make your honey a special dessert on Valentine’s Day, this Mini Strawberry Layer Cake is the perfect treat for two! It’s easy to get just the right size cake by repurposing an empty tomato can as a baking pan. With a few embellishments to a boxed cake mix and a simple homemade topping, you’ll have a beautiful and delicious cake.
I came up with this quesadilla recipe one Saturday afternoon when I didn’t have a lot of food in the house and I didn’t want to go to grocery shopping until Sunday. When I found the artichoke hearts and chickpeas in the pantry (two of my favorite foods) I had a feeling I could come up with something tasty. Then I found the corn tortillas in the fridge and I knew that a delicious meal would soon be on my plate.
My family loves my cornbread muffins! They’re delicious, moist, and the honey gives them a little extra but subtle sweetness. I honestly have no problem whatsoever with boxed mixes, but I always had extra cornmeal mix in the cupboard so I came up with my own recipe. Hope you love them as much as my family does. [Read more…]
When my kids are in the mood for a special breakfast treat, there’s usually pancakes involved. Although these ones are made from scratch, they’re pretty simple to whip up in a hurry. When I first came up with this recipe, I only added chocolate chips, but I’ve since incorporated [Read more…]
Strawberries are my favorite fruit. In fact, they’re one of my favorite foods. I love them! Who wouldn’t—they’re beautiful, practical, and versatile.
Strawberries make the perfect snack: you wash their red sweetness, put them in a container, and they’re ready to go anywhere. You can also dip them in just about anything for extra flavor. This little fruit can be made into smoothies, candies, cakes, pies, and salsas. One of my favorite treats to make from this fruit is my delicious Strawberry Muffins with Strawberry-Lemon Glaze.
This Creamy Artichoke Dip is a big fan favorite in my house whether it’s Superbowl Sunday or any other game day, a holiday, or any day I make it! It’s warm, tasty, and so simple to make. This batch size serves 5 – 7 people– depending on how hungry everyone is! You may want to double it for a larger gathering.
The New Year is always an exciting time – most of us are excited to start fresh. Others are more excited for a different reason – playoff football and eventually the Superbowl. I’ve heard it’s kind of a big deal.
For that reason, I have prepared the only way I know how – with the most important thing when it comes to any sporting event –food!
There are always so many options but this year I’ve gone for a more obvious one, with a twist: Superbowl themed cupcakes! Half the cupcakes are colored for one team and half is for the other team. This year it’s the New England Patriots (shocker) versus the Atlanta Falcons. So the colors are red, white, and blue versus red, white, and black. The best part is that I did not distinguish which cupcakes are which teams. So your Falcons guests may unwittingly bite into a Patriots-themed cake.
After the holiday season, with its sweets and treats, we’re probably all going to be thinking about cutting back on the calories for a while. We are, after all, going to have to fit back into our skinny jeans! We might be cutting back on sweets, but this recipe is full of flavor and is a really tasty and healthy treat.
