    Black Cocoa Sweet Rolls Recipe

    If you’re in the mood for a decadent twist on homemade cinnamon rolls, then you’ve got to try this Black Cocoa Sweet Rolls Recipe! Years ago, I found the most perfect cinnamon roll recipe from Two Peas in a Pod. Their Parry Rolls changed my life! The dough is such a breeze to make & it comes out every single time. What more can you want in a recipe? So while one can never truly tire of a cinnamon roll, I thought making a Black Cocoa Sweet Roll would be a treat! When the Book Club Cookbook’s Blends bash rolled around this year, I knew I had to feature this…

    Greek Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki

    These Greek Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki are a new favorite! Since my middle schooler is studying Greek history, we’ve been on a deep dive of Greek cuisine. Truth be told, I am not a fan of cucumbers, unless they are pickled. But, this tzatziki sauce features grated cucumbers with the tang of a lemon, greek yogurt and spices and it is so damn delicious! We always double the sauce because it’s good with chips, salad or meatballs. I can’t get enough. If you’re looking for a great Greek Salad recipe, check out Jessica’s Greek Mason Jar Salad.

    Greek Meatballs with Red Sauce

    I’m a long time fan of a quick and easy dinner, and this Greek Meatballs with Red Sauce recipe is from your counter to belly is under 45 minutes. Does it get better than that? My house is filled with fans of meatballs! It’s a great way to have the kids get their hands dirty and help blend all the ingredients together. While I’m all for hand rolled meatballs, most of the time I use a scoop to ensure they’re the same size so they cook evenly. Book Club Cookbook Spice Blends I’m thrilled to be part of the Book Club Cookbook’s Blends Bash once again. With this recipe, I’m…

    The Show Girl by Nicola Harrison

    We are thrilled to be part of The Book Club Cookbook’s Blog Party for The Show Girl by Nicola Harrison! Every time we read a book, we are always geared into what food or drink the characters are enjoying! One dessert that stood out in The Show Girl by Nicola Harrison is a Peach Melba. Now, I’ve never heard of a Peach Melba, but my mother says she used to eat them all the time! Well, we did a little digging into the history of a Peach Melba. According to Wikipedia, Peach Melba was created by the French chef Auguste Escoffier at the Savoy Hotel, London, to honor the Australian soprano,…

    We are thrilled to be part of The Book Club Cookbook’s Blog Party for The Newcomer by Mary Kay Andrews!

If you read her books, I think you get e great sense of her humor & joy. She is just a total gem and I am so glad  I had the opportunity to meet her. I’m also so glad we can celebrate her newest release with a perfect cocktail (or mocktail) pairing! Letty’s Surf…

    Peanut Butter Scones

    It’s Peanut Butter Scones Time! This is my first go-around being a part of the Book Club Cookbook Blog Party! We are celebrating the paperback release of Diane Chamberlain’s Big Lies in a Small Town. Now, I am a huge fan of Diane’s work. My book hangover after reading The Stolen Marriage lasted months – that book is amazing! Big Lies in a Small Town is another five star read! My friend Rachel read it when it came out & just loves it! Now, I baked up a round of these peanut butter scones to highlight the storyline. As Anna Dale attempts to paint the mural in Edenton, North Carolina, she…

    Chai Sugar Cookies

    These Chai Sugar Cookies are tasty, chewy, simple & a great year-round staple. Almost every night, we have “tea time”. We start the kettle & I have a green tea/lemonade mix with honey & Derek has some other tea that is caffeine & sugar-free. That’s how we roll. As we get into wintertime, I want a little snack to go with tea time & these Chai Sugar Cookies are where it’s at! Chai a Little Tenderness I love being a part of the Book Club Cookbook Blends Bash. I’ve used a lot of different spices & blends over the years. Truly, their products are so good & make great gifts!…

    S’mores Cookie Recipe

    This S’mores Cookie Recipe is rich, full of dark cocoa & topped with a toasted marshmallow & graham cracker crumbs. This is sure to satisfy any chocolate craving! Every single year, our family looks forward to going camping. We usually camp in the Redwood Forest in Northern California. One of my favorite parts of camping is attending Ranger Talks in the evening. After these talks we always head back to our space, get a fire going & enjoy s’mores late into the night. I love trying different types of chocolates & different types of marshmallows. Since we are not camping this year, I had to bring the s’mores into the…

    Strawberry Cream Cheese Braided Bread

    I am over the moon to say this Strawberry Cream Cheese Braided Bread is a winner! The best part is you can make it with fresh strawberries or with jam. You choose! It’s no secret to anyone that I love strawberries. It’s also no secret that I love baking. But baking with strawberries? That’s another deal! Baking with strawberries is a challenge for me. The water content is so high, often they can be soggy & chewy if not baked correctly. I’ve made muffins & other bread recipes & none are winners. A Few Tips We pick so many fresh strawberries so I wanted to try a braided bread with…
