4th of July S'Mores

Looking to serve something special, but also a favorite that your guests already love? Then these 4th of July S'mores are perfect for your party menu! They are easy to put together because you make parts of the recipe beforehand, and the only thing to do before serving is to toast the marshmallow! Use a good quality chocolate for the ganache and a big star as the topper! Everyone will love these!

Dad's Cookies

I was thinking about what kind of cookie is a Dad Cookie. I mean, there is really no such thing as a manly cookie~is there? So I thought about all the types of cookies I have made in my life and which ones the two men in my life liked the most and I came up with Dad's Cookies. There is no scientific evidence that states that these cookies are only for dad's, but I think he will love them!

Beach Cookies!

How about a Beach Cookie to start your week and ward off the Monday blahs! Last week I was making a bunch of beach themed cookies when I came across some beachy cookies on Cake Central. I love to look at all the cookie designs and I fell in love with the pretty simplicity of this beach cookie. This cookie was submitted by Sassyzan. Well, Sassyzan's post sent me to Montreal Confections where she gave step by step video directions on how to make this cookie. Trust me, it is easy and simple to follow. You can use your own sugar cookie recipe, or use my favorite "go to" cookie and frosting recipe!

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.
