What a solemn way to end a beautiful weekend. My prayers are with the people of Orlando….in my opinion this was not a hate crime….it was a crime against America. These terrorist cannot stand that we live in freedom…they despise our freedoms…When they attack a particular group of our country they are attacking all of us. What they want to “kill” is our beliefs…and the only way to combat them is to stand together as one nation under God. Prayers….
We are starting a fun outdoor project today with our local carpenter Bob. He is starting a pergola on our side porch….I will share some pics as we progress:)
For today….I wanted to share an easy and healthy summertime dessert that makes great use of all those fresh berries:)
This will be your go to dessert this summer….fresh berries, just enough sweetness…a touch of butter and crunchy graham cracker. Low sugar low cal dessert that taste just like a pie with none of the guilt. You can substitute any berries you may have on hand….I am going to try this with strawberries soon:)
One thing you learn when you move to Kentucky is to never call a Bourbon “whiskey”…blasphemy I say! What is the difference between whiskey and bourbon you ask??? Here is a little lesson for those of you who have never lived in Kentucky and are unaware of this fact. You can only call a particular alcohol Bourbon if it was made in the state of Kentucky. Bourbon is basically a whiskey that has been fermented in barrels for a specific amount of time. Bourbon typically has a much sweeter taste than some of your other whiskeys…much smoother that those say… made in say “Tennessee”;) Similar to how you really should not call a sparkling wine “Champagne” unless it came directly from the region in France. When you live in Kentucky you take this Kentucky Proud product of Bourbon very seriously. I thought that for my second post for the Kentucky Derby I would create a yummy brunch recipe that calls for a wee bit of the “brown water” as we call it here in the Bluegrass….
Wow….73 degrees here yesterday! Springtime is in the air. Every year when March 1 rolls around we get a few 70 degree days, and you can feel the end of winter is in sight. And, right about this time of year we all start to think about celebrations….and with that comes yummy desserts :)
Everything in mini form is so cute…. puppies…babies…kittens… and waffles of course! This month, I was challenged to create a fun and easy dessert for you to serve at your upcoming Easter brunches and springtime parties. I was up to the challenge and headed straight for my grocer’s frozen section to find ready-made (and super convenient) waffles—Kellogg’s Eggo has some of the best—along with some of my family’s favorite ice cream flavors to create a unique and utterly delicious dessert for your guests.
Hey all! Happy Friday!! Pop in on your fav social channels this weekend….I’m going to be projecting a bit at the beach house (at least that is the plan;) Wanted to share with you this easy dessert—-make some up on Sunday and eat it in your pjs;)
I recently had some friends over for a little get together and this cold chocolate fondue was a big hit! I liked it because I could make it a day ahead and just pull it out with some fresh fruit and graham crackers …good to go! Pretty simple ingredients just takes a little bit of time and then top it in the fridge until you need it. I suggest cutting up some strawberries along with some fresh raspberries and Granny Smith apples and ohhhh and maybe some graham cracker sticks. Gosh, now I’m all hungry;) It’s light and fluffy and taste just like fondue but cold! Perfect for your Halloween get together this coming weekend!

Hey yall! Hope you had a great weekend:) It was a low key birthday celebration here…which was fine by me. I did a fun Sunday project yesterday with some fabric that turned out so great….I will share it with you soon. Today….a fun Labor Day picnic treat that I made along with my friends at Breyer’s….enjoy!!
When my friends at Breyer’s wanted to send me some free ice cream and asked me to do a post for them about their Natural Vanilla ice cream…. I jumped at the chance! It is a favorite product in our house because it pleases everybody. You can add chocolate chips to it or sprinkle it with marshmallows or put some caramel on it or just have it plain jane. It is the crowd favorite! I wanted to share with you a recipe that is on the Breyer’s website that would be fun to do for a crowd. toasted almond and vanilla arancini
