Lime and White Chocolate Cookies



When I think of food and summertime, one of the first things that crosses my mind is citrus. Citrus gives  these Lime and White Chocolate Cookies a spark of flavor that tickles your tongue and lingers on your lips. It is the best in breads, salads, and marinades, and of course, it is perfection all by itself! Not only are these cookies baked with a bit of limeade concentrate, they are topped with a lime glaze and sprinkled with lime zest. You will remember these cookies long after they are gone. And they will disappear fast!

Seaside Pasta Salad/#KickOffToSummerWeek2014



Some of the best times of my life have revolved around food. So, I made this Seaside Pasta Salad to reflect the fun times my family and I have shared at the beach. I used the shells for the beach, the egg slices for the sun, the granola for the sand and the goldfish, well, you know. Silly, but fun and tasty!

Banana Lime Cake

This Banana Lime Cake would be the perfect way to celebrate Mother's Day. It is full of banana flavor with a lime back up. It has a texture much like a banana bread, but a little denser, and it is the perfect pairing to a cup of coffee. It is drizzled with a lime frosting and accented with banana chips. I made this cake using a mini tube pan, and 2 disposable loaf pans, because I am mailing them. This mini pan is plenty for four people.

Fajita Pizza

This Fajita Pizza is perfect when you are looking for something that is quick and easy to make for dinner. I bet you have most of the ingredients in your pantry or fridge. My family and I have been eating some version of this pizza for many years, and we never get tired of it! We have made it with just sauce and mozzarella, shredded chicken tossed in hot sauce topped with onions and 4 cheese mix with ranch on the side, and with alfredo sauce and chicken, scallions and fresh mozzarella. For us, the main ingredient is the tortilla crust. That is what makes it quick and tasty!

Tres Leches Mini Bundt Cake

This Tres Leches Bundt Cake is on the menu for our Cinco De Mayo party! The day is quickly approaching, and I am busy getting all the preliminary work done for the party. I hope you will be celebrating with us! I love tres leches cake, but this year I thought I might take some liberties with the traditional recipe, and make mine into personal bundt cakes. The recipe has not changed much, just the delivery vessel. This is one of my favorite cakes, and I hope you enjoy it!
