My new favorite pasta salad recipe!
When my family comes to visit, sometimes I feel like meal planning is a real struggle. I always try to accommodate everyone's food preferences - there is no Mexican food and limited Asian-inspired options; the meal has to be substantial enough for two big guys (salad, sandwiches, ...

So we've made it through ice cream, toppings and servers, and popsicles. You might be wondering what else is left. Why, desserts, of course! This week, I've desserts that don't fall into one of the above categories. They're frozen pies, cakes, sandwiches, and other ice ...

A book review today, along with a few notes on my recent trip to Denver and on book stores in general. It makes me sad that book stores are disappearing, as more and more people order things online (ereader or not). What do you think?

We discovered blackberries growing in our backyard a few weeks ago... this drink is going on our summer menu!
 
Blackberries? Yes, please. Check out Canadian native, Dara, as she adds maple to the mix to make a big splash in this summertime tea!
Brewing your own iced tea is easier than you could imagine. Use summertime fruit, such as blackberries, to make a low sugar, healthier version.

It's heating up where I am, and I'm craving ice cream more often. Here's 25 ice creams and sorbets from the blogosphere that I'm dying to try!
Growing up, my mom used to make this fantastic Oreo ice cream. I don't remember her making many varieties other than vanilla and Oreo, but the Oreo ice cream is the one we all loved. Mom only ever used Double Stuffers, because, really, the frosted center is the reason for eating the ...

My little one loved homemade vanilla ice cream. I'll be making this recipe all summer!
#recipe #icecream  
When the weather finally turned into sunshine and spring a month or so ago, I jumped at the chance to make homemade ice cream. I love the rich vanilla flavor and super smooth texture of homemade ice cream. This is my hubby's favorite vanilla recipe - Philadelphia-style, made with milk and ...

10 homemade ice cream toppings and serving vessels to try this summer
Considering the dozens and dozens of ice cream recipes that catch my eye, I've seen surprisingly few homemade servers (bowls, cones, etc) and toppings. I guess if you're making your own ice cream, the flavor is so vibrant that you don't want or need a topping for it. However, there ...

I'm disappointed that it's supposed to rain all weekend.  +The Way to His Heart  just posted over 3 dozen recipes I'd love to make for a BBQ. At least I can enjoy the beverages inside :-)
The 4th of July is fast approaching and I wanted to share some of my favorite recipes. Really, these can be made all summer long, but the 4th usually involves large gatherings so food is a plenty! ...

I rediscovered an old favorite #recipe last week - healthy, flavorful, and a quick weeknight dinner.
I found this recipe a few years ago and went through a phase of making it all of the time. I had forgotten about it until recently. I quickly added this old favorite back into our regular dinner rotation and vowed not to forget about it again. This baked, crispy chicken is healthy, flavorful, ...
