Tropical Ambrosia Salad
I recently finished up a photo shoot for a client that left me with an abundance of tropical fruit. Admittedly, that's a good problem to have but it's also a time-sensitive one. Whenever I buy fresh fruit I have to know ahead of time exactly what I'll be using it for, otherwise it just sits in the
Lemon Tie Dye Doughnuts
I think we could all use a colorful pick-me-up today. I'm taking a short break from watching the news and instead focusing on some of the little things that bring genuine happiness to my soul. And, yes - doughnuts are one of those things! 'Tie dye' is a bit of a misnomer here. More accurately, ...
DIY Rosé Wine Gummy Bears
I've been having too much fun in the kitchen lately. I wasn't even planning a blog post for today, but these pink gummy bears turned out so squee-worthy cute, that I just had to post them as soon as possible. I recently saw some rosé wine gummy bears online for sale, but apparently there's a very
My Favorite Coffee Cake
A good coffee cake recipe is worth its weight in gold, if you ask me, and everybody needs a trusty one. It should be tasty beyond words; something you can whip up for company or take to a potluck or even to an after-funeral reception. As strange as that sounds, it's what we do here in the south. We
Chocolate Zucchini Cupcakes
Peak zucchini season is from June to August, so now is a good time to get out your old trusty zucchini cake recipe - or your new one! Like the one I used for these chocolate zucchini cupcakes. If you're into luscious moist cake and rich chocolate buttercream, then I urge you to try it. This may be
Gelatin Shot Glasses
I might have named these " Jello Shot Shot Glasses " if it didn't sound so repetitive and a little confusing. But that's what they are! These jiggly little cups are made with berry blue Jello, unflavored gelatin powder a shot of blue Curaçao liqueur. Monday is Independence Day here in the US, so ...
Strawberry Milk Ice Pops
Summer’s heat makes me lazy in my bones. That’s why ice pops are quickly becoming my favorite warm weather treat. These Strawberry Milk Ice Pops are so quick to make ( nostalgic, too !) and the recipe only uses five ingredients. Continued, click to read more...
Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
This recipe is based on a carrot cake formula I learned in my ' Batter-Based Cakes ' pastry class. It makes a single 8-inch round cake covered in thick cream cheese frosting, which, at my house is just enough for company with no leftovers. I like that! Continued, click to read more...
Skillet Peach Cobbler with Biscuit Crust
There's no better way to revel in peach season than with a big 'ol skillet of cobbler. Add a scoop of ice cream and a front porch swing, and you've got summer's quintessential southern dessert. Peaches are among the most fragile of the stone fruits which means they are difficult to ship and store.
Tropical Sherbet Cake
I have a feeling this weekend will be busy for many of us. First of all, Sunday is Father's Day. We have a cookout planned with all the fixin's and plenty of family members on the guest list. Secondly, it's going to be sunny and hot (and humid, as I've mentioned previously ). Outdoor work and play
