#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 […]

Berry White Popsicles

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY! I’ve wanted to make my own frozen creations for quite some time now. While I really want to pull out the ice cream maker, there just isn’t quite enough room in the freezer to do so. Hopefully we’ll get a deep freezer soon and then I […]
