These Levain Bakery Copycat Cookies are spot on! Now I don't have to wait for a trip to NYC to enjoy one! #cookies   #copycat  
http://www.yourhomebasedmom.com/levain-bakery-chocolate-peanut-butter-cookies/
These babies are amazing and just as good as the real thing! Levain Bakery Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies are worth standing in line for but so much easier to make at home! I have visited my daughter three times in the last year since she has moved to NYC. Each time I go we explore new bakeries and restaurants but there is one place I go every time I am there – Levain Bakery. There is always a line and I always wait. Their cookies are amazing...

http://www.yourhomebasedmom.com/sweet-sour-salad/
This Sweet & Sour Salad has the perfect amount of tang and the perfect amount of sweet! I originally shared this recipe in July of 2010. It was one of the dishes I had served at my mom’s 80th birthday party. It was such a fun party and had a vintage theme to it. If you would like to check out the rest of the menu and the decor head on over to the party post here. You can check out the recipes for some of the other food I served here [Continu...

Huli Huli Chicken is the Hawaiian version of BBQ Chicken - delicious and easy! #chicken   #chickenrecipes   http://www.yourhomebasedmom.com/huli-huli-chicken/
Huli Huli chicken is the Hawaiian version of BBQ’d chicken. In Hawaiian, huli huli means turn turn. The chicken is aptly named because you turn it on the grill! This recipe is done on the grill but can definitely be done in the oven if you don’t have a grill available or it’s just too cold or rainy outside to stand over a grill! Huli huli chicken is marinaded in what is a Hawaiian BBQ sauce – a combination of pineapple juice, soy sauce, bro...

Better than corncake is how my eight year old neighbor described this corn cake!! http://www.yourhomebasedmom.com/corncake/
If you like cornbread you are going to LOVE this corncake! This corncake has a story. On our last trip to NYC we went to a Met’s game. My husband went with me on this trip and that was pretty much the one and only thing he wanted to do when we were in New York so how could I say no. We took the train over to Queens and went to the game. Fortunately for me, it was a quick game because I was looking forward to what we were [Continue Reading...]

Frosting or Cake? What's your favorite. I'm a frosting girl and the frosting on this Caramel Cake is amazing!! #cake   #dessert   http://www.yourhomebasedmom.com/the-best-caramel-cake/
The secret to a good caramel cake is all in the frosting. The frosting for this one is amazing! I have been on a quest for the perfect caramel cake for years. I posted my first version here. You see, when my husband was a child his favorite cake was a white cake with caramel frosting. I’m pretty sure his mom just used a white cake mix and topped it with homemade caramel frosting. I have the recipe somewhere and I’ve made it a few times. A car...

Tea time anyone? These Lemon Scones are the perfect addition. Light, flaky and lemony! http://www.yourhomebasedmom.com/lemon-scones/ #baking   #lemon  
These lemon scones are light, lovely and full of lemony goodness. Scones are not just for tea time! Although they are one of my favorite tea time treats these lemon scones are just too good to only enjoy for tea. They are the perfect addition to breakfast, brunch or an afternoon treat. If you are planning a brunch or breakfast, put these on your menu! Lemon is always my flavor of choice and I just can’t seem to get enough of it this time of ye...

I took this Thai Noodle Salad to our neighborhood 4th of July BBQ and it was a hit! It's perfect for a picnic/BBQ because it is best served at room temperature. #salad   http://www.yourhomebasedmom.com/friday-favorite-thai-noodle-salad/
This thai noodle salad is always a crowd pleaser and has lots of amazing textures and flavors going on! Today’s recipe is a Recipe Redo. I originally posted it in 2008. I made it this weekend for our neighborhood cul de sac potluck BBQ so it was the perfect time to rephotograph it and fix up the post a bit. It was as delicious and popular as ever. Here’s the original post: A few weeks ago I attended a woman’s event at church. It was a potluck ...

Put together the perfect photo book with +Mixbook  So easy to use and the finished product is gorgeous!! #weddingphotography  
http://www.yourhomebasedmom.com/wedding-photo-book-mixbook/
Putting together a photo book of our Barn Wedding was so fun and easy with Mixbook. I spent 20 years teaching people how to preserve their photos. In the predigital era, it was a lot easier to get people to print their photos because that was the only way they could see their photos. But with the onset of the digital photo age, my job to get people to print their photos got harder and harder. They figured that since they could see them on their...
