#CookoutWeek: Berry Icebox Cake

It’s super surprising to me that I’d spent my entire life never having an icebox cake. My mom definitely wasn’t a fan of baking so this recipe would have been right up her alley, but I suppose she never knew about it as the first time I saw a recipe […]

Improv Challenge: Strawberry Nutella Poptarts

I giggled when I read the two ingredients for this month’s Improv challenge: hearts and flours. I can’t help it, I’m easily amused by puns. In case you don’t know yet, the Improv Challenge is a challenge organized by Kristin of Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker. There are two […]

Strawberry Lime Popsicles

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

What do you do on a cold rainy day? Buy more strawberries than necessary and make chocolate covered strawberries. Well, at least that is what I did. Usually I’ll buy the little plastic container of chocolate that you stick in the microwave until it melts, but I forgot to pick […]
