Strawberry Basil Salad

Strawberry Basil Salad

I’ve always been a salad girl, but it’s only been the past few years that I’ve started to enjoy fruit included with my veggie salads.

Now that I’ve realized how much I love the sweetness fruit can bring to a savory salad, I find I’m hard pressed to enjoy a strictly vegetable salad ever since.

German Bee Sting Cake (Bienenstich)

German Bee Sting Cake (Bienenstich)

Before I started baking, I was a little intimidated to tackle this traditional German Bee Sting Cake. Our BFF’s have been to Germany many times over the years, and they’ve spoken so highly of this cake I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to do it justice.

Since I was gifting this cake to them for the many thoughtful acts they’ve done for us in the past, I especially wanted this cake to be amazing!

Sometimes the best recipes (just like inventions) come out of necessity. So it is with this recipe for Double Chocolate Graham Cracker Toffee. Since I’d had extra chocolate graham crackers left over from another recipe I’d completed, I wanted to use them up quickly before they got lost in the back of the pantry, which happens in my Kudos Kitchen more times than I care to admit. 

Shortcut Raspberry Spice Monkey Bread

Shortcut Raspberry Spice Monkey Bread

One of my very favorite convenience foods in the grocery store are the tube biscuits you find in the refrigerated section. You know the ones. They’re the little devils that, even though you know the “pop” is coming when the seal on the tube is released, somehow you’re still startled when it does. It happens to me every single time. LOL

Strawberry Banana Bread

Strawberry Banana Bread

Before I delve too far into this recipe I need to tell you that this Strawberry Banana Bread tastes great with, or without, the nuts. If you’re not a fan of almonds (or nuts in general), you are by all means welcome to leave them out of this recipe entirely. I promise I won’t tell, and you’ll still enjoy the flavor of this deliciously easy bread.However, you’re a fan of nuts, then by all means…add them. The texture and crunch they provide are a nice contrast to this super moist bread.

Irresistible Browned Butter Sweet Smoky Roasted Nuts

Irresistible Browned Butter Sweet Smoky Roasted Nuts

Can I tell you a little secret? I’m the girl who rifles through the mixed nuts to pick out all the cashews before anyone else can get to them. I know, it’s not my best quality, but I just can’t seem to help myself. So, the moral of the story is…if you like the cashews best, get to the Browned Butter Sweet Smoky Roasted Nuts before I do! LOL
