Apricot and Cream Ice Cream

Apricots and cream ice cream

I should have mentioned earlier that the strawberry cake bars came with an amazing ice cream recipe.  [Because what's cake without ice cream, right?]  I was lucky to find dried apricots on sale by the pound and bought up a ton.  I made apricot sweet rolls and this apricot and cream ice cream.  It’s like… Continue Reading…

Strawberry Cake Bars

I’m not going to lie, when I see something on sale I get excited.  It doesn’t really matter what it is.  I know the clearance stickers for the major stores and I am like a clearance hawk when I walk down the aisles.  [You know you love those red Target clearance stickers too!]  And for… Continue Reading…

Iced Caramel Macchiato

Iced Caramel Macchiato - Starbucks Copycat Recipe!

When we go out to eat, I tend to always order the same thing.  I’m what I like to call a “create of habit.”  I’ll patiently sit while everyone looks over the menu deciding what they want to eat or drink.  Not me.  I know going in what I want.  [Heck, I know before we… Continue Reading…

Asparagus and Leek Skillet Pizza

I’m starting to realize that when I like something, I really like something.  There are things that I really have been attached to lately when it comes to cooking.  [And I'm sure you've noticed them around here too.]  One – my cast iron skillet.  [It may be the only pan I use.] Two – bread. … Continue Reading…

Apricot Sweet Rolls

Do you know how I know that I’m really starting to like this whole “make your own bread” thing?  I love the smell of active yeast.  [Whoa, weird!]  I know.  Its totally weird!  But when I start making a bread recipe, the yeast starts to bubble and fill the whole house with good bread smells…. Continue Reading…

Basil Pizza Dough

Basil Pizza Dough Recipe

I think I am slowly starting to overcome my fear of making bread.  I make our homemade white bread once a week and I have even started venturing into other bread recipes.  It’s fun to try new bread recipes with a little more confidence.  One recipe that still had me scared?  Pizza dough!  I feel… Continue Reading…
