Berry Fresh Blueberry Peach Crisp Recipe

There is something comforting and charmingly and old-fashioned about a crumble or crisp. It’s like a dessert-hug grandma would have made for Sunday dinner when the family was coming over.

I think any grandma would be proud and pleased to place this Berry Fresh Blueberry Peach Crisp on the dinner table in front of the family. And hopefully, someday I’ll be that grandma. *wink*

Surprise Strawberry Pie Cake with Cute Lattice Pie Crust Topping

I’m going to be perfectly honest with you here (as I always am). This recipe idea for Strawberry Orange Pie Cake is not my own. I saw it in one of my back issues of Food Network Magazine and thought it looked like something I wanted to try. I did, however, adapt the recipe ingredients and also put my own touch on the lattice pie crust topping with those cute little strawberry accents to up the cuteness factor.

Fast & Easy One Bowl Beer Bread Biscuits with Herbs

The thing I enjoy the most about these easy Beer Bread Biscuits is how quickly they come together. From the time you decide to make them, from the time you can actually eat one (or more) is roughly one hour, and that’s simply because I don’t want you to burn your mouth on a too hot biscuit. Safety first, kids. LOL

Cream Cheese Cookies with Creamy Cheesecake Topping

I dressed these Cream Cheese Cookies in red for Valentine’s Day, but you can dress them in any color you like, or even leave them plain. The choice is yours. All I suggest is that you make them right away because they’ll soon become your go-to favorite cookie! Crunchy and creamy! Oh yeah!!!

Best Ever Santa’s Favorite Sugar Cookies

When we got married, and Mark and I started our own family, there were certain traditions I wanted to continue from when I was a little girl and hopefully pass along to our two boys. These cookies were one of the things I incorporated throughout the years to fondly rekindle my joyous Christmas memories.

I am happy to report that our boys (now grown) feel exactly the same way about these cookies as I did, and still do to this day.  Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without Santa’s Favorite Sugar Cookies.

Buttery Sweet Pistachio Cranberry Snowball Cookies

I adapted this recipe from one I shared back in 2010 called pecan snowball cookies. I was going to do a recipe re-do where I updated the photos in the original post. However, before I knew it, my brain was adding the festive red and green elements of pistachios and dried cranberries, and omitting the pecans altogether. The result is utterly delicious. I do hope you’ll make these Buttery Sweet Pistachio Cranberry Snowball Cookies. I know you’ll love them just as much as we do!

Autumn Splendor Soft Chewy Amish Sweet Potato Cookies

I found the recipe for sweet potato cookies in a small Amish pamphlet cookbook while visiting the gift shop in the St. Louis capital building around this same time last year. I tweaked the recipe only slightly here and there. I omitted the nuts, substituted allspice for ground cloves, and increased the brown sugar by half.

Delectable BLT Puff Pastry Tart with a Balsamic Drizzle

I’ve created this recipe for a BLT Puff Pastry Tart in honor of #BaconMonth 2017 when tomatoes are at their peak of flavor. The tomatoes make this tart fresh and delicious, but the bacon makes this tart outstanding!!
