Old-Fashioned Strawberry Rhubarb Bundt Cake

The batter for this cake is thick….really thick, but that’s what enables the fruit to stay wonderfully suspended throughout the entire cake, and not sink to the bottom (make that the top) of the cake, when the cake is inverted.

In almost each and every forkful you take of this Old-Fashioned Strawberry Rhubarb Bundt Cake you’ll have a plump piece of strawberry or rhubarb, which is a very, very good thing!

Strawberry Crescent Muffins

Of all the convenience foods in the market the pop-tube biscuits, crescent dough, in particular, is my favorite. For this recipe of Sweet Streusel Strawberry Crescent Muffins, I used two tubes of crescent dough sheets and then sprinkled them with a mixture of Dixie Crystals granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, and lots of chopped, fresh, strawberries.

The result is a deliciously tempting muffin that’s perfect for any #BrunchWeek celebration, and/or to serve mom for Mother’s Day!

Prosciutto Wrapped Pineapple Spears

When I know I’m going to indulge in a decadent weekend brunch with all of my favorite foods; I like to start the meal off with a bit of pineapple. I’ve heard that pineapple helps melt away belly fat, but don’t quote me on that, because it’s not really true!

However, since I like to *THINK* it may be true I’ve convinced myself that it’s a great way to kick off #BrunchWeek and that maybe all those other calories to follow won’t actually count. Ha! Ha!

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.

Spicy Thai Pulled Pork with Orange for the Slow Cooker

If I was you, I’d think up a reason to have friends and family over as soon as possible (maybe for an impromptu game night), just so you can make and serve these amazing sandwiches! I promise you won’t regret it one bit!!
