I just love summer produce! All of my favorite fruits are at their prime in the summer so I take advantage during the season. This recipe works well with whatever fruits you have on hand so substitute pretty much anything. Everyone will love this delicious fruit salad tossed with a delicious honey-yogurt sauce.
This has to be the easiest and best butternut squash recipe I have found. It is not really sweet, has no crust, and is perfect for a light after dinner treat. I don’t feel bad about enjoying this one at all and I hope you won’t either.

I love to celebrate pi day by eating pie for breakfast! In previous years, I’ve had banana cream pie, chocolate pie, or apple pie. I decided to go a little more adult route this year and celebrate the asparagus that is abundant in my fridge right now. When my daughter saw breakfast she was disappointed that it wasn’t “real pie” but then inhaled it and asked for seconds.
Okay so this is probably technically a quiche but I’m not going to be so serious about such things. Once you try it, I think we can agree that it is delicious cheesy asparagus goodness. Continue reading “Celebrate Pi Day with breakfast Asparagus Pie!”
I was fortunate to live with my grandmother for 4 years during college. In the span of these years we spent much of our time talking about or making some family favorite foods! One of my FAVORITE desserts she would prepare was Kuchen.
It would never fail, she would bake two or 3 Kuchen’s on the one weekend I worked or was out of town! Now, I’m not complaining as I definetly reaped the benefits of her labor. However, she passed in 2013. We have scoured her recipe cards and many cook books and none of them indicated a recipe she used! For the past few year I have been trying out a few variations and finally have a Kuchen Recipe that is comparable to hers!
I hope you enjoy this little slice of Heavenly Kuchen with a twist- Mandarin Oranges!! Continue reading “Mandarin Kuchen”

Thanks to Bountiful Baskets I can not only make my cake I can eat it too. I used my homemade applesauce and fresh zucchini from one of my baskets to make a moist and light cake. I did a semi sweet chip frosting to keep it simple. Every one deserves a special treat once in a while so why not try this, you won’t be disappointed.
I am so in love with the young Thai White coconut we got in a basket. There are so many ways to enjoy them and this is at the top of my list. In the notes you will see how to make your own coconut milk to use in this recipe.
Thanksgiving has always had a special place in my heart. It’s the time of year when everyone gives a little extra effort to spend time together. Work schedules, activities and events become less of a priority and we’re reminded that our families are the real reason for being thankful. Sometimes that family extends far beyond the kind of blood relation. Sometimes that extends across the country to people you have never met. That is the case for our big, beautiful Bountiful Baskets family. We are spread out across the country; most of us wouldn’t even know each other if we crossed paths on the street. We may not know each other by face, but we can see each others’ hearts. And that is what makes us family.
This year, I am giving Thanks for not only my blood family, but to my Bountiful Baskets family as well. I have never seen a group of this magnitude; more dedicated, kind and genuine than the people in Bountiful Baskets. I have felt compassion and acceptance from places I didn’t know could exist. I have felt loved and supported by people who I have never met….People; who are extremely busy with their lives and still find time to give this co-op and each other time and energy. The truth is; most of us don’t have much to give but we would willingly give it all for each other and this co-op. I feel blessed beyond words to be a part of this, a part of something great. The coolest part, I didn’t have to pass a test to join this club…All I had to do was show up, and I was welcomed. I am thankful for no prerequisites…Not sure I would’ve passed! 😉
