I seem to be on a pancake kick, because when I came up with the idea for carrot cake pancakes, I couldn't shake it until I had created it.
Homemade jam is something really special--so much better than most of what you can buy commercially.
And if you make freezer jam, it's even easier. I'll tell you a secret, too: I actually prefer the taste of freezer jam to traditional jam. It's bright, fruity, and tastes like spring in a jar when you pull it out of your freezer the following winter.
You might not know it by the number of cookie recipes I post, but I'm a bigger fan of salty than sweet things, so I have no idea why it didn't occur to me to explore the world of savory pancakes until very recently. Pancakes with maple syrup are fine, but don't really tempt me much. But a savory pancake...oh my...now that's an idea that could get me up in the morning.
Back in 2009, while I was still pregnant with our youngest, we took a family trip to Italy--something of a babymoon.
That's pretty much the only picture of me in Italy, since even then, I was the only one who knew how to work my camera (even though I'm SO much better at photography now!). We were exploring Pompeii, and in the distance behind us is Mt. Vesuvius.
I LOVE German pancakes. The eggy, denser bits (funny, since I don't like eggs), paired with the bubbling, light, slightly crispy crust. Dusted with powdered sugar and sprinkled with fresh lemon juice, they're pretty much the most delicious things in the world.

Yesterday, I shared my favorite homemade hot fudge sauce recipe for topping ice cream sundaes. But sometimes a person isn't in the mood for chocolate. (It happens! I swear!)
I've been in an ice cream kind of mood lately, which is, quite frankly, unusual for me. Maybe it's because the Golden Spoon that used to be close to us shut down, and I'm suddenly feeling the lack of availability?
Whatever the reason, I've been feeling the urge to dig up an old favorite recipe for fabulous homemade hot fudge sauce.
I made some birthday cookies for a friend this weekend, and ended up with leftover royal icing. Rather than throw it away, I was inspired to update my homemade candy buttons tutorial with a Valentine's Day twist.
Looking for the perfect pink drink for Valentine's day? You can't go wrong with a classic Shirley Temple.
We've come to the final tutorial for the Firefly birthday party! Today, I'm sharing one of my very favorite recipes: Pancit Canton. It's one of the recipes we learned to make when we lived in the Philippines, and it's a wonderful, one-pot (fewer dishes!) noodle dish, kind of like the Filipino version of Lo Mein noodles.
