#FestiveFoodies: Cherry Berry Buckle Cake

“Hmm.” Was the first thing I thought when I saw that Ellen of Family Around the Table had created a Festive Foodies event called Red, White and Blue. I had the same theme for the Improv Cooking Challenge last month and definitely struggled to find a recipe to make. You’d […]

#FoodieExtravaganza: Strawberry Avocado Salad

Did you know that June is National Fruits and Vegetables month? I didn’t, until I saw the theme for this month’s Foodie Extravaganza. But it makes sense, the farmers markets and grocery stores are full of fresh produce. And most importantly, the price of strawberries and watermelon has finally went […]

#FantasticalFoodFight: Strawberry Shortcake Layer Cake

Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits. Really, there are very few fruits that I don’t like, but there are always, always, always strawberries in my house. While I could eat an entire pint of them without thinking twice, I only like them raw. I’ve tried cooked and roasted strawberries […]

#FantasticalFoodFight: Blueberry Steel Cut Oatmeal Muffins

When I saw that the ingredient for January’s Fantastical Food Fight was oatmeal, my first thought was “I wonder if you can make muffins using steel cut oats?” I’m not quite sure how, but I ended up with a massive amount of steel cut oats. Too many for one person […]

#BundtBakers: Strawberry Crunch Bundt Cake

This blog post should really be titled “The cake that didn’t want to cake.” I’ve known that the theme for this month’s #BundtBakers was strawberry for a few months now. I made my first recipe back in early June when strawberries were plentiful and cheap. It was a strawberry rhubarb […]

Improv Cooking Challenge: Balsamic Berry Crostini

Many, many years ago I found out that putting balsamic vinegar on berries brought out their sweetness. It was something I initially would have never believed or tried, but I’m so glad that I did. I love how the tart vinegar pairs with the sweet berries and while I don’t […]

Patriotic Berry Slab Pie

One of my cousins lives on the Eastern Shore in Maryland has a tradition of hosting a cookout in the beginning of July. This was the first year we’ve been able to go. I knew I wanted to bring a dessert that was fitting for the fourth of July holiday […]
