West Elm has compensated me for this post…however all thoughts and photos are my own. The plate reads….More Savoring, Less Laboring…..so so so true. Especially around the holidays.

Homemade Traditional Philadelphia Water Ice Recipe


There are several things that remind me of childhood…water ice is real high on that list. You would think that a simple sugar syrup and a little bit of flavoring wouldn’t be too hard to come by….but it is.

Traditional Blueberry Muffin recipe


I have a theory. If you don’t like a particular food…bake it in a muffin…and then talk to me. For reals…I was never a fan of blueberries until I made this muffin.

They are tender, just sweet enough, loaded with healthy blueberries…and warmed up in a oven for about 5 minutes..they are a little … [Read more...]

Triple Berry Bar Recipe


Some of you (me being included in this statement) place “fruit” outside of the “dessert” category. I remember when my Grammie would have her bridge group over....she would make this pineapple upside down cake for dessert. I always thought…”well that’s a rip off….there is no chocolate! That’s an excuse for a dessert.” Since then I have come to … [Read more...]
