This easy, healthy strawberry sauce comes together with just frozen strawberries, maple syrup and water! I prefer a not-too-sweet sauce, but if you like it sweeter feel free to add more maple syrup to taste. The sauce is fabulous on Waffles, Pancakes, Shortcakes, Crepes, Cakes and Cottage Cheese!
Round out your breakfast with these easy air fryer frozen hash brown patties that are perfectly crispy and can be made in minutes! This recipe is incredibly simple because the hash browns are already cooked, it's just a matter of getting them hot and extra crispy!
Ever since I read “The Secret Life of Bees,” I’ve been obsessed with biscuits and honey. When I was reading it, I would buy a can or bag of frozen biscuits and make one or two at a time to slather with honey. And while homemade biscuits taste better than the canned kind, mine never [...]
I unabashedly love grilled cheese. But a year of grilled cheeses (and frozen yogurt with rainbow sprinkles) from the cafe on the first floor of one of the Senate office buildings wreaked havoc on my figure, so I needed to cut back. And now I work in the Pentagon, which is completely devoid of acceptable [...]
Do you like Creamsicles? Dreamsicles? Orange-cream slushes at Sonic? Anything with orange and cream together? I love them all. Orange + vanilla might seem like a weird combination if you’ve never had one of those frozen confections, but I promise it works. Which is why I was intrigued when I saw this cake on Rosie’s [...]
I grew up hating most breakfast foods. I went through a phase where I would eat bagels (and then wouldn’t), a phase where I would basically only eat those frozen mini-pancakes that taste like marshmallow (but not with pancake syrup — only fruit-flavored syrup) and a very long period during which I refused to eat [...]
This salad reminds me of hot dogs, watermelon and sun tea. Inflatable alligators, freshly mowed grass, the smell of Coppertone and chlorine and the thwack of flip flops on the pool deck. Besides its association with childhood pool parties, it’s easy, it’s pink, it’s chock-full of fruit and it’s delicious. It also contains Cool Whip, sugar [...]
Though mint chocolate chip ice cream and coconut gelato tend to be my favorite frozen treats, sometimes only strawberry ice cream (or a strawberry milkshakes) will do. This is particularly true of homemade ice cream, which is definitely better (and easier) in certain flavors — like peach and strawberry. But as obsessed as I am with all [...]
Acai bowls are definitely the more well-known and ubiquitous of the smoothie bowls, but pitaya — sometimes called dragon fruit — is really my favorite. But while frozen acai packets are relatively common, packs of frozen pitaya chunks are a little less easy to find. I was pretty excited to see them at our local Safeway, but you [...]
Celebrate National Tequila Day with a delicious frozen margarita pie with tortilla chip crust! It's the perfect combination of salty and sweet.
Sometimes a hectic life can throw you for a loop. We get so busy taking care of the mundane that we forget to nurture the important, and our connection with our partner is one of the most important relationships in our lives. Reconnecting can be as easy as taking the time to make a date, and it doesn't have to be complicated. You can have a special date night at home, and it can be as simple or as elaborate as you have time to plan for. I recently went all out for a special dinner, just my husband and I, and although it looks fancy it didn't take that long to plan or to make. I picked up flowers, wine, a crusty loaf of french bread, and a Bertolli frozen meal at Kroger (which takes 10 minutes to make!), then went to work creating a delicious Black and White Cannolis recipe to help you wow your partner without spending a lot of time.
There's nothing like a family dinner to bring everyone together in the evenings. It's a time to relax and catch up with what's happened during everyone's day. A fabulous family dinner featuring an authentic Italian dish doesn't have to take a lot of time. You can whip up a Bertolli frozen meal in less than 20 minutes. That will give you lots of time to make it extra special with a crusty loaf of bread, some wine, and maybe a fun serviette that will impress the family. Recreate the “Mangia” experience for yourself with ease!
When I get super-busy and am slugging down coffee all day, it's hard to remember to stop for lunch sometimes. I have to admit that when I do remember and there's nothing to grab and go, I'll wait until dinner when I'll be cooking anyway. Not a great choice, I know. That's why I love to stock up on easy, better-for-you frozen meals (on sale!) that I can just pop into the microwave and healthier side recipes that I can make ahead and warm up for the perfect lunch pairing.
Hi, guys! I'm here today with an easy and flavorful snack recipe perfect for those warm days: Peach Ginger tea-soaked frozen grapes! I'm cutting my red grapes in half and soaking them in my favorite Peach Ginger tea for a lovely infusion of flavor and a little end-of-the-day energy boost and since April is Earth Month, I'll also show you how I'm upcycling my tea containers into pretty on-the-go snack containers that you can use again and again!
Are you ready for summer vacation? Schools let out here near the end of May and as a work-at-home-mom, preparation is key. If I'm not ready, everything gets knocked out of whack. Plus, hearing "I'm bored!" all day is pretty much my nightmare. ;) To prepare for summer vacation, I research things for us to do as well as buy rainy day backups like coloring books and play dough. This year I also made a summer fun spinner that should keep them busy for a while (of course I'm sharing!) I also stock up on quick frozen meals that I can prepare in a jiffy without wondering if their nutrition is suffering.
There is nothing more southern than a dessert that features peaches and pecans. They're some of my favorite foods and when you add them to a sweet dough, they are divine. Ah, carbs. Today's recipe is a southern dessert delight: a Fried Peach Dessert Pizza. It's easy and the dough can be made ahead of time and refrigerated or even frozen until you need it. When it's time for dessert, simply pre-bake your crust, then add luscious fried peaches, brown sugar and butter-soaked pecans, then sand the edges with sugar for a delicious crusty crust. The result is delightfully fruity, sweet, crunchy, and chewy and is perfect with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
Holy moly, guys, it's sooooo hot! We've had record temperatures here, so I thought it would be the perfect time to make a frozen treat. Specifically, something sweet and creamy that will give me a pick-me-up during the scorching afternoons. How about some super-easy Vietnamese Coffee Popsicles?!
Y'all. I just found my new favorite thing. So, I don't know if I've mentioned this yet (lol), but I love me some coffee. Coffee in a cup, over waffles, or frozen on a stick, I've found some creative ways to have coffee just about any time of day. (If you're confused about the last sentence, check my recipe section. 😉) This one is brand new and it is scrumptious.
