Blueberry Cobbler. Doesn’t the name just make your mouth begin to water? It sure does mine. This past weekend, my husband hosted another Scout group (not Little Buddy’s group) at the hangar for their rain gutter regatta and space derby. Since we weren’t in charge of the actual Scout group, we decided it would [...]
Lemon Pound Cake was never my favorite growing up. There was just something about it that didn’t appeal to me. But then, I reworked a favorite pound cake recipe of my family’s and now, I’m addicted to this Lemon Pound Cake. I mean addicted. The fresh burst of lemon flavor coupled with the [...]

Fruit salad makes a wonderful addition to just about any meal or for a snack or even a dessert, but with whipped cream and a drizzle of honey? Oh my stars! So simple to make, it’s easy to just customize fruit salad to the fruits you have on hand or to your personal preferences. [...]
Even though I’m ready for sweaters, long sleeves, jeans and boots, I’m still holding on to the fruits of summer as long as I can. Strawberries, blueberries and late season blackberries have been favorites for the last few days. Luckily though, even though they aren’t in prime season throughout the year, these three fruits are [...]
This post brought to you by Nectresse™ Sweetener. All opinions are 100% mine. Since we toured around Williamsburg, VA and Washington, D.C. recently, I’ve had an insatiable affinity for apple pie and cherry cobbler. I know, I know, so cliche, right? Well, I can’t help myself! The apple pie served at Shield’s Tavern in Williamsburg [...]
Watermelon water makes a delicious, refreshing drink to serve when entertaining, too. Great for picnics, BBQs, and especially baby and wedding showers. Make a pitcher to serve at your next event.
