Dark Chocolate-Raspberry Ice Cream

5669925822_4b5f1fb4c8

I’m on a serious ice cream rage.  Each morning I wake up thinking about what type I want to make next.  If it wasn’t for the limited space in my freezer and the potential for extra rolls on my body, I’m sure I would make a new flavor every day. I’ve also been turned on […]

Enchilada Lasagna

Every so often I come across an old recipe on my blog where I’m guessing the photo makes you quickly click away in disgust.  This was one of those posts.  Although we eat this often in our house, I would always forget to take a new picture of it.  Finally, I remembered!  But, not only […]

Friday Favs at Beantown Baker

Today is the last day of my vacation.  When I think of vacation, I think of warm weather and sunshine.  But, that’s what I left behind at home, and this vacation consisted of rain, wind, cold temperatures and even snow.  Hello, Midwest! Despite the cold, I’m leaving you today with an ice cream recipe that […]

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

It wasn’t too long ago that these cookies went viral around the food blogging world.  When seeing them pop up on blog after blog, my curiosity got the best of me and I had to give them a try.  The verdict?  Honestly, they weren’t my favorite.  Just a tad bit too much for me.  But, […]

Tropical Chicken Quesadillas

Ben and I love quesadillas, but nothing is more disappointing to us when we see them listed on a menu with a lonely filling of just cheese.  Don’t get me wrong, that simple version can hold up as a decent enough snack, but quesadillas are so much more enjoyable when they are loaded with flavorful […]

Death by Chocolate Trifle

Death by Chocolate can mean so many things.  For me, it always means tall layers of cakey chocolate brownies, decadent chocolate mousse, toffee pieces and whipped cream just waiting for me to dig into it.  This has been and always will be one of my favorite desserts for a few reasons.  1) It is very […]

Crunchy Apple Slaw

Are you ready for some barbecue?  Tell me, what complements your favorite BBQ recipes?  For me, it’s a good ol’ refreshing coleslaw to cool my breath from those dripping red-hot ribs.  Rarely do I like any of the slaw that is served in the restaurants.  But, give me some freshly made at home and I […]

Strawberry Glazed Angel Food Cake

On Monday I shared with you a recipe for Angel Food Cake.  Today, I’m giving you one of the many great ways you can serve it.  My favorite way is topped with mashed strawberries and whipped cream.  It’s very simple and doesn’t require an exact recipe.  Just chop up some fresh strawberries (frozen works as […]

Angel Food Cake

5587421467_c09ba0efb9

I grew up eating store-bought angel food cake and always loved its light and fluffy texture.  It was a treat that I looked forward to my mom buying in the spring and summer.  Once I grew up and moved away from home, I stopped with the tradition and never found myself buying it on my […]

Spaghetti Meat Sauce

5575587787_08ea45c15e

Occasionally, I tease my mom for frequently serving spaghetti for dinner.  She has done this since I can remember and continues to do so today.  What she doesn’t know is that I have followed her trend.  Shhh..don’t tell her!  :)  I understand why my mom likes to make spaghetti so often.  It’s a meal loved […]
