Fresh Peach Turnovers

Today I am back with another fruit recipe, Fresh Peach Turnovers.  I love fresh fruit and peaches are both delicious and reasonably priced right now.  When I bought them I knew I wanted to make a pie but I quickly decided to make turnovers.  I am a sucker for individually portioned food and these little […] Read more…

Twix Icebox Cake

My step daughter Harley’s favorite candy bar is a Twix.  I had been researching recipes because I knew I wanted to try my hand at an icebox cake.  I just hadn’t quite narrowed down my flavors…until I grabbed a Twix candy bar to bring home and thought it would be perfect.  If you have never […] Read more…

Caramel Drumstick Ice Cream Pie

Drumstick Cones are such an iconic summer treat.  Who wouldn’t love to have one on a hot summer day?  When I was a kid, my sisters and I would ride our bikes to The Westside Store {a little country store about a quarter mile from our house} almost every day to buy a treat and […] Read more…

Strawberry Shortcake with Sweet Biscuits

I have strawberries coming out of my ears this week because 2 pound containers were on sale for $1.88 at Safeway.  Who can resist a bargin like that?  Certainly not this girl!  When I was trying to think about what recipes I wanted to make with them, Strawberry Shortcake came to mind first.  I am […] Read more…

How to Plan a Dessert Buffet

I love to plan a good party and because my world revolves around food that is always where the planning starts.  This past weekend my Tales graduated from high school which was a fabulous excuse for a gathering.  We decided early on that a dessert buffet was the way to go because who doesn’t love […] Read more…

Fresh Raspberry Gallette with Lime Glaze

Spring has finally sprung around here!!  I love the blue skies, warmer weather, smell of fresh cut grass, wild flowers on hikes and fresh ripened produce.  If you haven’t had a Gallette before then you need it in your life.  When I teach my students how to make them at school, I always explain it […] Read more…

Pinata Cupcake

When I owned the deli and bakery I made a lot of cupcakes.  Most of the time customers wanted them to be filled with something delicious.  At first I was intimidated…I didn’t go to culinary school.  I am self taught {with the help of Mom and Mrs. Johnson} and so sometimes my methods might not […] Read more…

Blackberry Crumble Bars

After the Lemon Pound Cake I posted earlier in the month, I decided that I needed to keep the fruit theme going.  Today is the third day of Spring Break for us and although the weather is much better than last week…it could still use some improvement.  My Tales and I are heading to Redding […] Read more…

Easy Basketball Cupcake Toppers

March Madness is upon us!!  While I normally wouldn’t pay much attention to the games, I decided that a cute cupcake topper was necessary.  My Darb also has money on the line, so it has been a regular on our television.  I still don’t know much about the whole bracket thing…I only know what teams […] Read more…
