In January/February, I always see a box of Meyer Lemons at Costco and I feel compelled to put them in my cart. I don’t ever have a recipe in mind when I see them, but I love citrus so much, that I always find something to do with them. This time it was gelato. This [...]
I made these for a school function the other day and I thought they were fantastic. I am a big citrus fan and the orange is really wonderful in these cupcakes. The fresh vanilla beans add some nice flavor as well. Every now and then it’s nice to make something other than a chocolate or [...]
These are a great dessert for a holiday table. I am told that they taste just like the cranberry bars that Starbucks sells at Christmas time. They are festive and they taste incredible.
Bars are a favorite of mine because you get a lot of bang for your buck. Bars are relatively easy to put together, [...]
I love finding good apple recipes in the fall. We take the boys apple picking once a year and end up with many more apples than we can eat. I always make several batches of this apple sauce, but we still have extra apples. If you’re in the same boat, and you don’t want to [...]
I love homemade caramels. The kind they sometimes give you after dinner at a fancy restaurant.
I have only ever made these before, and they’re delicious, but these apple cider caramels are incredible. I love the concentrated apple flavor, and the slight saltiness. I truly have never tasted anything like them. I’d love it if a [...]
This is a great recipe to try if you’re looking for a healthy snack, and if you have some apples and time on your hands. These chips take 3 – 4 hours to bake at a really low temperature. They’re incredibly tasty when they’re done, and if you can slice them very thinly on a [...]
I mentioned in my last post how much I loved refrigerator oatmeal, and I wasn’t kidding. I have two batches of this pumpkin spice oatmeal marinating in my refrigerator right now. Tomorrow’s breakfast is going to be good!
In the fall, I make these pumpkin muffins quite a bit for the boys. When I first made [...]
Ok, this is my new favorite breakfast. I’ve made a batch the last three days and I’ll probably throw a batch together tonight for tomorrow morning’s breakfast. It takes mere minutes to throw together if you have the ingredients on hand, and it’s really healthy. I asked one of my sons to try it, and [...]
Because school just started for the boys, I thought I’d make them a nice healthy breakfast. I learned about Baked Oatmeal with Fruit from a friend who pinned the recipe to her Pintrest board. I adore oatmeal and I love the idea of baking it so you can make it in advance. I actually made [...]
I think I’m going to have to get a better picture of this dish. I made it the other night when we had some friends over for dinner. It’s a terrific combination of flavors and textures. The avocado is smooth and creamy (if it’s ripe), the nuts are crunchy and the fruit chewy.
Here are my [...]
