Baked Butternut Squash Macaroni and Cheese

Baked Butternut Squash Macaroni and Cheese

I love butternut squash. I make risotto with it, add it to beef stew, or often simply bake it on it’s own. So it was only a matter of time before I tried it with my baked macaroni and cheese! The squash is so smooth in this dish and makes it seem even cheesier…

Strawberry Curd

Strawberry Curd

Strawberries are finally in season locally, which means they’re once again affordable and fresh.  My four-year-old LOVES them, so they are always on-hand at our house this time of year.

Coleslaw

Coleslaw

Here’s some trivia for you:  The term “coleslaw” arose in the 20th century as a partial translation from the Dutch term “koolsla”, a shortening of “koolsalade”, which means “cabbage salad”.   In the US, most coleslaw is made with a mayonaise-based dressing, but this is a recipe that has been a fave..

Traditional Deviled Eggs

Traditional Deviled Eggs

One of the things I love about Easter is eggs!   And what better to do with hard boiled eggs than deviled eggs.   We are going to an Easter/Birthday Party today and this is one of the dishes I’m taking.  Everybody loves deviled eggs and I’m sure they will disappear quickly!

Granny's Chocolate Bar Cake

Granny’s Chocolate Bar Cake

This cake is my Grandmother’s recipe and we always had it for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but it’s Easter and it’s also my man’s birthday and I needed to bake a cake for the party.  He’s a chocoholic and I knew this cake would fit the bill.

Simple and Delish: Easter Oreos

We don’t always have time to prepare a from scratch perfect treat… Here’s a fun and simple Easter goodie that looks as good as it tastes.  Because really, can you go wrong with Oreos? From The Picky Palate: These colorful Easter Oreos are a must for your Easter table if you ask me!!

Here comes Peter Cottontail

Here comes Peter Cottontail

This cake holds so many memories for me.  As a child, we made a version of this every year at Easter.  What I love about it is the simplicity of the design – even a child can pull this off.  You don’t have to be a professional to make this simple little bunny shaped cake!

Spotlight – Chinese Tea Leaf Eggs

Browsing the webs for more interesting egg ideas, I wandered across this by NoobCook.  If you’re not going to go for dying the outsides of eggshells this year, perhaps this would be a fun and tasty alternative!  I’ve seen these before and they always struck me as so beautiful…
