Strawberry Iced Tea

Strawberry Iced Tea is made with sweet, fresh, strawberry simple syrup for a refreshing summer drink! Sometimes at the end of a long, excruciating grocery store trip, I reward myself on the way to the check-out lane by grabbing a frosty bottle of peach iced tea. I enjoy it as I drive home and unload the groceries, patting myself on the back for a (dreaded) job well done (or at least accomplished). On a recent trip to the grocery store, {Read More}

Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting

Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting is thick, silky, and bursting with strawberry flavor thanks to a special ingredient…crushed, freeze-dried strawberries! I know a certain little 4-year-old who adores all things strawberry. Strawberry smoothies, strawberry ice cream, strawberry muffins, strawberry cake…if it starts with strawberry, she’s a fan. She’s requested strawberry cupcakes for her last couple of birthdays, and I’ve typically just topped them with my family’s favorite Classic Cream Cheese Frosting recipe with some fresh strawberry puree blended in. The problem {Read More}

Strawberry Goat Cheese Salad with Lemon Honey Vinaigrette (AKA, Easter Salad)

Strawberry Goat Cheese Salad with Toasted Almonds & Lemon Honey Vinaigrette (AKA, Easter Salad) is a beautiful, delicious addition to any spring or summer meal! I’m of the opinion that every special holiday meal should include a gorgeous, festive, scrumptious salad loaded with seasonal ingredients. And y’all apparently agree, because my Holiday Honeycrisp Salad is one of the site’s most popular recipes from Christmas to New Year’s, and my Thanksgiving Salad gets lots of attention come November. So why shouldn’t {Read More}

Easy Strawberries & Cream Oatmeal

Strawberries & Cream Oatmeal is an easy, healthy breakfast recipe for busy mornings, topped with toasted almonds and chia seeds to make it extra tasty and wholesome! I usually try to keep make-ahead recipes on hand for quick breakfasts on busy weekday mornings — granola, granola bars, baked oatmeal, overnight oats, freezer breakfast sandwiches, mini frittatas, muffins, breakfast cookies, and the like. But the truth is that sometimes, I don’t have my act together and I’m running short on time…so {Read More}

So I thought it would be fun this year to put together a special V-Day menu, complete with heart-shaped snacks and a festive dessert and {Read More}

Peanut Butter & Jelly Muffins ~ A Perfect After School Snack for the First Day (or Any Day!)

When my son started Kindergarten last year, I had these little gems waiting on him as an after school snack when he got home on the first day. And this year? He’s already asked me if I’ll be making them again for his first day back. Guess they made an impression. The first day of school can be somewhat exhausting and overwhelming for kiddos coming off of summer vacation, so I think it’s nice to have a special snack waiting {Read More}
