German Plum Cake

When I lived in Germany, I often ate German Plum Cake (known in German as Pflaumenkuchen or Zwetschenkuchen). I fell in love with the combination of a deliciously moist lemon tart topped with sweet plums baked to perfection. My co-worker received a German Plum Cake for her birthday, and we gobbled it right up.  I also got

How to Make Banana Pancakes out of Pancake Mix

Jack Johnson is a favorite musician of mine. He sings a song called “Banana Pancakes.” A verse of the song goes, “But, baby, you hardly even notice When I try to show you this Song is meant to keep you From doing what you’re supposed to. Waking up too early Maybe we can sleep in

How to Turn a Bread Recipe into a Muffin Recipe

In order to turn a bread recipe into a muffin recipe you will want to… Raise the temperature you bake the bread at. Typically you will raise it at least 25 degrees Fahrenheit. For example, my banana bread recipe bakes at 350 F, so for muffins I bake them at 375 F. Most bread bakes at 350 F

Banana Bread Muffins

Banana bread has always been a favorite of mine. Today I made Banana Bread muffins because I was short on time, and they bake about 25 minutes faster. They are also easier to divvy out if you are gifting them to multiple neighbors (which I’m planning to do) than a loaf of bread would be. I

Pineapple Lemonade Slush

If you are looking for a delicious slush, look no further. This recipe is so so yummy! It has a perfect balance of pineapple, lemonade, vanilla, and ice all slushed together in a blender. This drink is great for parties, BBQ’s, or even just for family dinner/dessert. When I first tried this slush, I was blown away.

Zucchini Cinnamon Sugar Bread Recipe

My good friend called me and said she had a giant zucchini from her garden that I could have. I was so excited and grateful, as I love garden zucchini. I drove over, and sure enough, it was over a foot and a half long! So, I got out my mom’s moist and delicious Zucchini Cinnamon Sugar Bread

Caramelized Coconut-Infused Carrots

My friend Rachel and I love to have dinners together with our kids who are about the same ages. We sometimes have difficulty getting them to eat their veggies (my kids probably more so than hers). As a result, we try to get creative with making vegetables taste better. She came upon this recipe, and we gave it a

New York Pizza Burger

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Stop & Shop for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Pizza has always been a favorite food of mine. Ever since I was a little girl I have just loved it! I like all kinds of pizza from thick crust to thin crust, marinara and

Jamba Juice Caribbean Passion Smoothie Copycat Recipe

When I lived in Taiwan, it was hard to find anything sweet. Apparently they just don’t eat sweet stuff because even the McDonald’s ice cream had no sugar in it! One day my friends and I found a shop that made creamed slush and used real fruit concentrate as flavoring which made them sweet. My favorite was Passion

Kids’ No Sugar Added Slushies + Win $100 Walmart Gift Card

Summer is fast approaching and we love cold drinks, juice, and slushies. Today I took my kids’ favorite new juice–Mott’s® Apple Cherry Juice–and blended it with some ice. I put it in a few cups with color-changing straws. My kids have been going crazy over the sweet frozen goodness of this simple treat. (Admittedly, I have also

19 Fun Easter Recipes

Easter is such a lovely holiday. I enjoy the spring temperatures, the budding flowers, and the rebirth of green in nature! I appreciate the time I have to contemplate Christ and his Messianic mission during this holiday. Easter baskets and egg hunts are a favorite—especially now that I have kids. I love to see them excited

Resurrection Easter Dessert Rolls

My friend has been making these Resurrection Easter Dessert Rolls for years. She taught me how and told me I could share this amazing recipe and object lesson with my readers. I showed my son and his friend the marshmallow and told them it represented Jesus Christ. He was laid in the tomb (Pillsbury® Butter

Homemade Rice Krispie Treats That Actually Taste Like Original Rice Krispie Treats

I’ve always loved the Original Rice Krispie Treat Bars. They taste amazing—but quite different from homemade rice krispie treats. Although I love both homemade and blue bar treats, I’ve never figured out why the blue-wrapped treats tasted so different from the homemade recipes I would make…until recently. By luck, I decided to make the standard Rice

High-Protein Banana Split Dessert

I am on a high-protein diet, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love a dessert now and again! When I eat something sweet, I try to balance it with a good amount of protein. I feel like I can stay on track better when my desserts are filled with protein—as they keep me full longer.
