Classic Apple Pie

I’m sorry I’ve been MIA, friends. I can’t believe how busy life has gotten. Being a mom is the craziest thing I’ve ever done. Tiny humans can be demanding. And cuddly. I’m not going to complain about that last one. Not at all. But let’s get real here people. This is a food blog, and last week was Thanksgiving. Thanks. Giving. That’s the big time for home cooks. The Super Bowl, if you will. For Thanksgiving this year I made the most classic of American dishes. No. Not the McRi

Raspberry Streusel Coffee Cake

I want to eat this for breakfast, lunch, dinner, second dinner, snacks, tea time, recess, dessert, brunch, brinner and every other second of every day. This makes me happy. You want to know what else makes me happy? This. That, my friends, is the most wonderful, beautiful, amazing photo-shoot crasher on the face of the planet. I’m not even a little bit ashamed to admit that I am completely and totally infatuated with her, and she may or may not run the shots in this household

Strawberry Mint Lemonade

I’m a fan of lemonade. Especially strawberry lemonade. This drink just screams summer, especially since I used the strawberries that I bought from the farmer’s market. I made it easy and used lemonade from the store, but it could become even better if you made your own homemade fresh squeezed lemonade. But, this momma has had a crazy busy week, so store-bought lemonade just had to do the trick. And oh boy… did it do the trick. Strawberry Mint Lemonade 2016-01-22 15:18:09 A re

Caramel Apple Dip

How ridiculously good are caramel apples? How ridiculously awkward is it to try to eat a caramel apple? You guys know what I’m talkin’ ’bout. To compare this dip to a caramel apple is unfair because it is like 100,00 x better than any caramel apple that I’ve ever tried. Plus you can eat it on a date and not look like an idiot. Am I the only one that didn’t think through what I was ordering whenever I was on a date? One time, I ordered ribs on a date. Let’s just say they were

Brazilian Lemonade

[showad block=2] DRANK. I never understood why the name of this drink is Brazilian Lemonade because there are approximately ZERO lemons in it. Give or take. Why isn’t it named Brazilian Limeade, you ask? Just drink it, and I swear it won’t even matter anymore. This drink could be named poopoo lemonade and I wouldn’t even question it after trying it. Okay, I might be a little more hesitant, but still. It is THE BEST. I got this recipe from Our Best Bites, and it has become a f

Apple Feta Bacon Salad

Lemon Squares

DUDE. These are the bomb dot com.Or is it Oh sad… I just realized I am seriously out of touch nowadays. Actually, have you guys ever heard the song #SELFIE? When I listen to that song it makes me really happy that I am so out of touch. If that’s considered cool, I would rather drive a newly sharpened pencil through my own eardrums than be cool and listen to it again. That would probably hurt really bad. But it would be worth it. Or I’ll just stuff these lemon bars i

Mango Salsa

Did you know you can spell the plural of mango two different ways? Mangos and Mangoes. One is American English, and one is British English. When my family lived in Germany, I went to school with a couple British kids and we would always get in fights about the proper way to say certain words. “It’s not TROW-ZAHS it’s PANTS!” “It’s not RUBBISH it’s GARBAGE!” Then when we would get done fighting over words, we would switch accents. All the British kids would speak with an Ameri

Strawberry Spinach Salad

Famous Julie tends a mean garden. I don’t know how she does it but pretty much anything she touches grows like a weed. She would argue that especially the weeds grow like weeds, but that just proves my point. One of my favorite things to eat fresh out of her garden are her strawberries. Let’s just say if for some unknown reason her strawberries were the only thing I was allowed to eat for the rest of my life, I would totally be okay with that. She also grows her own spinach,

Fruit Pizza

Believe it or not, it is possible to love pizza more. Especially when it’s fruit pizza. When I was young, I used to eat all the fruit off the top first, and then eat the sugar cookie and frosting alone. Now that I’m an adult and have a more refined palate, I just stuff my face with it the way that it is. I keep the face stuffing to a minimum most of the time because I’m like, a lady and stuff. And stuffing your face with fruit pizza isn’t super lady-like. But sometimes, you j

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Guess who got INNNNN-TERRRRR-NETTTTTTT!!!! Yeah. I just sang that. I might be a little excited. You know what else gets me excited? Food. Specifically good food, like this blueberry zucchini bread. I’m pretty easily entertained. Blueberry Zucchini Bread 2016-01-24 20:38:56 My favorite way to eat zucchini. With blueberries and sugar, obviously.

Pomegranate Salad

Mmmmmhhh…. pomegranates. They are like the prettiest and tastiest of all the fruits. My little brother can eat them by the POUND. A pound of pomegranates seeds…. that’s a lot of seeds, since they weigh approximately, oh… I don’t know… Nothing. Seriously though, Check those out! They are almost too pretty to eat. Key word = almost. They are really awesome in so many things, but you need to try them in this salad. I had never had this fruit salad until I married my husband. It
