My Minty Strawberry and Raspberry Shortcake is like a Summery slap to the face. Slightly sweet, spongy cake builds the foundation for all of that sweet, strawberry goodness sandwiched with layers of fluffy homemade vanilla whipped cream. Each bite breaths little wisps of refreshing mint over your tongue and through your nose.
Sweet, tangy, smokey, and rich. This Honeydew Melon salad wets your appetite and awakens your taste buds. It’s a perfect first course for a rich grilled steak, snapper, or mahi mahi.
Grilling brie before stuffing it snuggly into a scrumptious, tangy sourdough shell makes for a lovely hor dourve experience.
If you are regular reader of this blog you know that I am not above taking a little help from the grocery store at times. Kid friendly recipes are the perfect time to keep things simple and take advantage of pre-made items you can get from the store. These two Kid Friendly Pizza Roll recipes are one of my favorites that littles can help with as well.
Friday brought a sudden cold snap to Austin, TX. After weeks of high temperatures in the 80s, I was met with a burst of 40 degree wind when I let the dogs out Friday morning. Our shiba inu/princess, Sadie, decided not to stay outside for long. Cold temps might be a bit disappointing to a warm lover like me, but it does give me a great reason to make beef chili again!
