Cranberry Scones with Maple Glaze

Cranberry Scones with Maple Glaze

When given the choice between a scone and any other breakfast treat, as a child, there was no contest. A cinnamon roll, a danish, or even a buttery bagel would beat out a scone every time. Scones just always seemed like a grown up breakfast. […]

Granny’s Golden Apple Fritters with Honey Glaze

Granny’s Golden Apple Fritters with Honey Glaze

It has been said that Americans will deep fry just about anything. But I really don’t know anyone who wants to deep fry anything. The words deep fry, to me, are synonymous with calories and a messy stove top. However, in an effort to use […]

Trick-or-Treat Cake

Trick-or-Treat Cake

Although my personal costume selection has evolved over the years (please let all pictures from my college years be lost forever), kids’ costumes really have not changed. In my youth, our costumes were usually hand sewn by my mom, with the exception of the highly […]

FrankenBrownies || Homemade in a Hurry

FrankenBrownies || Homemade in a Hurry

Halloween celebrations really evolve over the years, don’t they? For a kid, its all about the candy. As a teenager/college student its all about the costume…or maybe getting attention for said costume. And now, at least for me, I just want to find that perfect […]

Wine Jell-O Shots || Lost and Found

Wine Jell-O Shots || Lost and Found

Jell-O seems to be the shoulder pads of food fashion. A congealed salad evokes the same nose crinkle as the over-sized shoulder-padded blazer in the back of your mom’s closet. It’s good to save some of these pieces just in case they make a come […]

August always has everyone asking for s’more; S’more days off from school, s’more time staying up late before bedtime and probably s’more screen time to escape the heat. If you make this recipe, I can promise your whole family will be asking for s’more Peanut Butter […]

Lemon Curd Bars with Animal Cracker Crust

Lemon Curd Bars with Animal Cracker Crust

The fruit of the poor lemon may be impossible for some to eat in its truest form. But juice it, zest it, add some butter, sugar, and eggs and I’ll show you something  impossible NOT to eat. Granny’s lemon curd by itself is quite possibly […]

Banana Pudding Pops

Banana Pudding Pops

Where are my fellow children of the 80’s/90’s? If you just raised your hand, chances are you spent summers outside, at the pool or playing capture the flag and watching TGIF on Fridays and SNICK on Saturdays (if you had cable, which…we didn’t). Do any […]
