Last night I opened my fridge to find the dessert wraps from a few drops ago. Did you try them!? I made them for my family a few different ways (all of them fabulous by the way!), but I saw a few posts about making them into bowls and I wanted to try this idea. Read the rest of this entry »
I love guacamole! Guacamole is a dip made traditionally from avocados, with additions of tomato, onion, lime juice, and seasonings. It ranges in texture from a thick sauce to a chunky dip. Health tip–Avocados are packed with more than twenty vitamins, contain “good fats” that reduce cholesterol, can help fight cancer, and can be used as a substitute for butter or shortening in baking!

One of the things that happens the night before Basket Day is using up the remnants of whatever is left in the veggie drawer in the fridge. One of the easiest things to do (and currently one of our favorites) is to go Indian – with a veggie tikka masala.

Have I ever mentioned that we go through our veggies way faster than our fruit? We do. We’re just a savory, veggie type of family. So anything that I can do to use up the fruit in more savory ways is always welcome.
And hot sauce. Hot sauce is always welcome too. Which brings me to this recipe. While perusing Caribbean flavors it occurred to me that I could probably create a hot sauce with the fruit I have on hand. That’s how this recipe came about.

I wanted to use my Italian pack items and my beefsteak tomatoes but I also needed a quick, easy dinner while life is so busy! I felt like challenging myself today cause lets face it…Life has been busy and I have let my kitchen inspirations fall to the waste side lately. I was hoping my instincts hadn’t left me when I started this meal out. We can let you be the judge of it Read the rest of this entry »
“Cool as a cucumber….”
Cucumbers are so refreshing! Cucumber salads are fun to make and can be flavored to add to your entree or to eat alone. I had lots of oranges and wanted to make a sweet cucumber salad. I added some thinly sliced almonds and celery to give it some crunch. I hope you will enjoy this salad! Read the rest of this entry »
Pearsauce! I have made applesauce for years for my family. I was looking at the bowl of pears that sat on my counter and thought, hmmm, pearsauce! This was my first attempt at making it and my family loves it! I peeled and diced the pears and slowly simmered it on the stove. When I added the spices to it, the whole house smelled yummy! Pearsauce is great on toast or just in a bowl for breakfast. I hope you will try this recipe and enjoy it, too! Read the rest of this entry »
I am sure most of you have heard of ComicCon. A convention where adults (and children) dress up in costume and do whatever they do there. I have never been to a ComicCon and have no desire to go get my “Geek on” there but, a couple weeks ago I went on a “Mommy Vacation” without my family to get my “Geek on” at CookieCon in Salt Lake City. No, we didn’t dress up as our favorite Keebler elf or as an Oreo but we learned different techniques with decorating sugar cookies. 450 of us from 44 states and 16 Countries across the globe came to the CookieCon. We were all hopped up on sugar from royal icing! Read the rest of this entry »
