Friday Favorites–Breakfast

I know it doesn’t make sense on the face of it, but fall puts me in the mood for breakfast.  I do try to eat breakfast every day, but honestly, most days it’s a granola bar.  There’s something about the cooling weather and the traditional fall flavors that lends itself to pancakes, waffles, omelets, crepes,…

Friday Favorites–Coconut

One of my very favorite foods is coconut.  Sweet, savory, beverage, breakfast, entre, dessert, sign me up.  Another favorite is seafood, so in a Gilligan’s Island scenario I’m all set…as soon as I figure out how MaryAnn made all of those pie crusts. Did you know you could make a Mounds-like bar with only three…

Strawberry Cheesecake Bites

When our brief-but-glorious strawberry season hits, I try to make the most of it.  As luck would have it, we were recently asked to bring a dessert to a barbeque, and I was on my first crate of berries.  After a drool-filled Pinterest session, I came away with a winning recipe for Cheesecake Sugar Cookie…

Gluten Free Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

This post is sponsored by the Oregon Raspberry and Blackberry Commission.  I received a gift card and accessories as reimbursement for ingredients and time. I have one of my sewing machines back from the shop.  Hooray!  I thought by having two I would always have a backup, but Murphy’s Law prevailed.  As I mentioned last…

Talented Tuesday Link Party #63

As I write this, I’m working on packing up to go to Chicago and watch my son graduate from Navy boot camp at the end of the week.  We’ve talked to him on the phone a couple of times while he’s been gone, but I’m anxious to see his smiling face again!  But before I…
