It’s definitely strawberry pickin’ season around here and after making my jam, strawberry cake, and strawberry ice cream, I found myself still greedily returning back to our local strawberry farm, clutching a basket to stuff it with more.  Needless to say, it’s been a strawberry party everyday.  Another one of my favorite ways to enjoy..read more

Peanut Butter Jelly Cupcakes

I was enjoying a pb&j for lunch the other day when I decided I wanted these for dessert.  I know, I’m crazy but by this craziness, I bring sweets for my sweets {and I’m corny too, didn’t you know}?  These are a hybrid peanut butter cupcake-brownie base injected with fresh jam, swirled with a creamy..read more

Before I saw these ripe blushing babies, I could smell them.  I bet the world could be a nicer place if it was scented with the perfume of fresh and sweet peaches.  Unless you’re a peach-hater, is there anything like biting into the soft flesh of a fat peach, so juicy that it dribbles down..read more

This year, our garden is providing us with an abundance of zucchini and summer squash and grilling them alongside our meat is an easy go-to option nearly every weekend, but when I’m craving an altogether different way to enjoy them, I like to whip them up into something sweet, like this zucchini bread.  Softly spiced,..read more

With Summer rapidly approaching (June 21st), you can’t help but envision BBQ’s and alfresco dining with a generous portion of grilled meat. Along side the conventional dogs and patties, I also enjoy including some chicken, especially this yogurt spiced chicken.

I often get asked, what’s your favorite ingredient?  That’s a toughie.  I’m partial to automatically (and most enthusiastically) exclaiming my allegiance to butter or bacon, but not far behind is the humble egg.  Experts ping pong back and forth on whether or not they’re good for you, but my loyalty to the egg remains firm…read more

Tomorrow marks the arrival of Autumn which is my absolute favorite time of the year!  Needless to say, there will be a liberal use of exclamation marks in this post.  Autumn means warm and spicy liquids, toppling over with mounds of whipped cream, flushed cheeks, fuzzy mittens, and a dazzling array of bold foliage on..read more

Raspberry Champagne Cupcakes

Everyone always asks me what inspires me to make the dishes that I do.  Well to be frank often times, it’s what I’m craving, but not to go without saying that for a foodie like me, inspiration is everywhere and can be pulled from anything.  I have a one track mind in the sense that..read more
