Baby Greens and Strawberry Salad…Get Up and Grow with Dole

I have become a salad addict. Addict, I tell you.  Sometimes twice a day, but at least once a day.  Salad, salad, salad.  And though I am still living on minimal carbs with my new diet, I am a huge fan of tossing in fresh fruit…especially strawberries.  A few candied nuts, some creamy, tangy goat […]

Strawberry Coconut Rum Punch

I’m not sure if you like coconut as much as I do, because that would actually be a hard thing to achieve. I’m a coconut nut. Coconut pie. Coconut cake. Toasted coconut. I want it. Crave it.  Need it. And now, there is Captain Morgan’s Coconut Rum. And they say good things don’t happen to […]

Strawberry Limeade Cupcakes…and a Giveaway

Strawberry Limeade Cupcakes. Let that sink in for a minute. Sounds like spring and summer, all wrapped up in a nice little bow, doesn’t it?  Yeah, it kinda does.  Flavors like citrus and berries just shout warm weather, and these tasty cupcakes do not disappoint. I was challenged by Pillsbury to take a couple of […]

Strawberry and Rosemary Chicken and Waffles

Grilled Chicken & Strawberry Salad

Yes, friends…I am posting yet another salad.  On MY blog.  This time, a Grilled Chicken and Strawberry Bacon Salad. I had to, you see.  My life is changing. You may not be aware of this, but towards the end of the summer, I went on a diet. Oh lord…the dreaded D word. But you see, […]

For the past few years, I’ve been making pink foods along with KitchenAid, in an effort to increase breast cancer awareness and the Susan G. Komen Foundation.  KitchenAid is a huge supporter of the foundation, and it’s something that touches so many of us. So of course, when the note came in again this year […]

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Popover Bites

If you’re going to have breakfast, have BREAKFAST. You all know how much I like popovers, and for good reason.  They are so quick, so easy, and I always have the main ingredients to make them.  Plus, adaptable?  Holy yes.  Add chocolate, or add fruit, add peanut butter or flavorings.  Or, make them savory by […]

Orange and Vanilla Cream Fresh Fruit Tart

I love the look of those fancy tarts you see in the bakery window.  You know the ones – the glassy fruit topped tarts, looking glazed and gorgeous, and you just want to HAVE IT. Must. Have. The. Tart. Well, I never actually BUY them.  And as it turns out, I can make them in […]
