Blueberry Peach Crisp

How it is that we’re in the last weeks of August? It seems like it was just yesterday that the seasons were changing, school ended for the year, and the 4th of July was still a long time away. Summer is quickly coming to an end, and fall is just around the corner. I’m in denial, friends. Although I love fall, and everything having to do with apples and pumpkins, I’m ready to hang onto the warm Read more


Pizza Potato Skins

Let’s talk about potatoes today. Carb-loaded and full of starch, I’m a potato fan. Baked, broiled, mashed, steamed, roasted, or fried, I pretty much like any potato that comes my way. In a casserole? Love it! Dipped in ketchup? Even better. But then there’s the outcast…potato skins. My feelings on these little guys are somewhat distorted. Even loaded with cheese, bacon, and sour cream, I just Read more

Soft, moist, and full of cake batter flavor, these Funfetti Cake Batter Bars are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth in a fun way!

Funfetti Cake Batter Bars

Funfetti cake batter, in bar form, swirled with white chocolate chips. Need I say more?  This has been the summer of desserts for me. Most weekends, I hole up in my kitchen and make some kind of a baked good (or three) to be featured on my blog, and also because I just love desserts, ya know?  As much as I love cooking, I also love baking, maybe even a smidge more. During the Read more

Pesto Mozzarella Pasta Salad

Happy Friday, friends! As you’re reading this, I’m up in the beautiful state of Wisconsin, enjoying the rustic country for the weekend. Just like earlier in June, the hubster and I drove up last night to spend the weekend having some fun in the sun. On the agenda: relaxation! I’m hoping for some sunny weather so that I can work on my tan. I’m a tan-burn girl, so I get a combination of a Read more

French bread slices, topped with fresh basil, mozzarella cheese, and vine-ripened tomatoes created these delicious Caprese Bites.

Caprese Bites

I’m mildly obsessed with anything involving caprese ingredients. Mozzarella, basil, tomatoes….that’s just about the perfect combination in my book. Whether it’s in the form of a salad, sandwich, or bruschetta, it reminds me of summer.   Panera Bread used to make a delicious caprese salad. It was only available in the summer, and whenever it came out, I promptly went there to devour the Read more

Fresh blueberries and creamy blueberry yogurt give this Blueberry Yogurt Cake a deliciously moist texture, full of blueberry flavor.

Blueberry Yogurt Cake

It's no secret that I like fruit. Peaches, strawberries, raspberries...they've all made their way onto my blog for some delicious recipes this summer. I love baking with fresh fruit anytime of the year, but during the summer, it's a must for me. Since I visit my local farmer's market just about every weekend, I have no excuse as to why I can't bake with some ripe and delicious Read more

Strawberry Pie Bites

I feel like I'm a magazine hoarder. I have three monthly subscriptions to different magazines (two of them being food-related ones), and sometimes go without reading them for quite some time. I'll flip through and look at the pictures or read a few interesting articles, but they often collect dust until I remember to go through them. I also have a stack of bridal magazines from when I was planning Read more
