Orange Cranberry Almond Bread

Orange Cranberry Almond Bread

I’ve been playing around with the new White Lily flour blends lately, which combine wheat flour with grape seed flour for a unique (and tasty) alternative to plain flour in baked goods. One of their newest additions to their line of premium flours is Wheat & Almond Flour Blend, which blends a small amount of almonds into their non-GMO wheat flour. The almonds bring in ...

Caramel Lemon Pie

Caramel Lemon Pie

When I first heard about the limited edition flavors of sweetened condensed milk that Eagle Brand was releasing, I couldn’t wait to try them out. Once I tasted the chocolate and the caramel, I knew that there were lots of possibilities for bringing these flavors into some of my favorite desserts that already use sweetened condensed milk. One sweetened condensed milk that everyone is familiar ... Read More »

Homemade Cherry Limeade

Homemade Cherry Limeade

I’ve always had a soft spot for Cherry Limeade. It’s a delicious combination of sweet and tart, and I’m a sucker for that vibrant pink color. The problem with many cherry limeades is that they aren’t made with fresh juices, so you get an artifical cherry flavor instead of an authentic one. I don’t mind artificial cherry flavor in a lollipop, but I don’t want ... Read More »

Chocolate Covered Strawberry M&M Cookies

Chocolate Covered Strawberry M&M Cookies

Always eager to try unusual candies around the holidays, I scooped up a bag of White┬áStrawberry Shortcake M&Ms a couple of weeks before Valentine’s Day. These are a new holiday flavor for the brand and try to capture the flavor of a strawberry shortcake by infusing white chocolate with vanilla (for the cake and cream) and strawberry flavors. Surprisingly, the pastel-colored candies nailed the strawberry ... Read More »

Coconut Marshmallows

Homemade Coconut Marshmallows

Biting into a homemade marshmallow is like biting into a little cloud – only a lot more delicious. I love making homemade marshmallows and while vanilla is a staple that I keep coming back to (and I’ve been making this recipe for more than a decade), I also enjoy making flavored marshmallows. Flavored marshmallows give you a chance to add a new layer of flavor ... Read More »

Strawberry Shortbread

Strawberry Shortbread

Shortbread is a cookie that never wears out its welcome in my kitchen, probably because I love butter so much. A good shortbread recipe uses plenty of butter and allows that butter flavor to come through in the finished cookies. In addition to showcasing butter, shortbread is also an excellent canvas on which to play with other flavors because the cookies are so simple. In ... Read More »

Coconut Mocha

Homemade Coconut Mocha Coffee Drink

Chocolate and coconut is one of my favorite combinations – after chocolate and coffee, of course. Starbucks and other coffee chains tend to put coconut on their spring and summer menus, when consumers are in the mood for a cold beverage with a tropical flair. While I enjoy coconut mocha frappuccinos, I also enjoy hot coconut mochas. Fortunately, they’re easy to make at home, so ... Read More »

Valentine’s Day Funfetti Cake

Valentine's Day Funfetti Cake

Funfetti cakes have been one of my favorite types of cake for celebrations for years. The colorful cakes are easy to make and never fail to put smiles on the faces of anyone being served a slice. They’re typically made with rainbow sprinkles, but by using holiday-specific sprinkles, you can tailor your funfetti cakes to suit any occasion. This Valentine’s Day Funfetti Cake is made ...
