May is a month filled with celebrations … starting this weekend with Mother’s Day! Plus, graduations and confirmations are marked on everybody’s calendars. Food always helps bring people together on these special occasions, which is part of the reason I love them so much. (Of course, I enjoy spending time with my loved ones, too …… CONTINUE READING »
Cobblers. Crisps. Crumbles. Oh my.
There are a lot of different variations out there, but they all have a few things in common … like delicate, buttery pastry. A warm, bubbly fruit filling. And a way of making you feel right at home.
With Mother’s Day around the corner, it’s the perfect time to create a new twist on a classic favorite – blueberry cobbler. Featuring our Lemonberry™ Cake & Icing Mix, this luscious version is kissed with the bright flavor of lemon and brimming with blueberries. Best of all, you can stir it up in about three minutes flat! (Trust me – the hardest part is resisting the divine aroma filling your kitchen, as all that juicy blueberry goodness bubbles away for the better part of an hour.)
Luscious and creamy, the filling is bursting with the bright flavor of lemon. Add a few fresh berries, and you’ve got all kinds of gorgeous colors, tastes and textures. (Plus, it’s super easy and elegant for Easter entertaining, too!) So share it with your family this weekend, and enjoy the first sweet taste of spring.
Since Easter often involves early morning activities, today we have a recipe for Butterscotch Breakfast Bread and it is full of awesome! When I sliced the first loaf, I think some heavenly light actually came out. So whether you celebrate Easter or not … you must try this bread!
Ok, raise your hands … who loves Pinterest?
It’s filled with so many fabulous ideas, though I must admit, I’m still getting the hang of it. (I also still use a flip phone circa 2002 – try not to judge.)
But I love seeing all of the cute and crafty concoctions out there, especially the kid-friendly recipes. This week it inspired me to stir up some chocolate nests with our new Mom’s No-Bake Cookie Mix. So sweet, so simple … and so utterly charming.
Beer and chocolate? What kind of blarney is this, you ask? Don’t worry – my lads and lassies. It isn’t quite as crazy as it sounds. Many stouts have chocolate undertones, and with St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, it seemed only right to bring a little Guinness into the kitchen this week. Now I… CONTINUE READING »
I always have room for dessert. ALWAYS. While I envy some of my dainty co-workers and friends who are full after drinking a diet soda and eating a salad, I am not that girl. I could quite happily eat a piece of chocolate cake every day – and twice on Sunday.
Valentine’s Day can feel a bit commercial sometimes with all of the greeting cards, singing teddy bears and high-priced flowers. But you know what? Doing something sweet for someone you love is always a good idea. Here at Tastefully Simple, we’ve been swooning over Very Cherry Cheese Ball Mix this month – part of a limited-edition set with Chocolate Twisty Grahams. I guarantee it will taste better than anything from a drugstore. And knowing you cared enough to make something special? Well, they’ll definitely feel the love.
We all have our little indulgences. For me? It’s a dark, rich cup of steaming espresso. (We live two minutes away from the drive-thru of a major coffee chain, and well – let’s just say the entire staff knows the names of my children.) To feel less guilty about this little extravagance, I often get a special treat for my three-year-old. His favorite choice? A cake pop. With Valentine’s Day coming, it seemed like the perfect time to finally try making my own cake pops at home. This recipe features one of my all-time favorite products, and it turned out BEAUTIFULLY.
Ever get that feeling at night where you want some chocolate? Just a small piece – enough to stop the craving. Then you can carry on with your night, right? Except I have that feeling every night. And so does my husband. So we give in to the craving. And it’s time to start eating something with a little fiber. These brownies seem a little unconventional (and they are), but go with it – you’ll be glad you gave it a try!
This year, I’m gonna lose those 10 pounds. I have a plan, and it starts with pound cake. No, really! The Lightened Almond Pound Cake Trifle has applesauce, sugar-free pudding, skim milk and berries (a super food!) – so this recipe is really dreamy in a goal-oriented kind of way … the perfect way to start the year!
