It’s getting close to summer, which means my refrigerator is stocked with fresh berries and my smoothie game has been on point. I even planted a couple of strawberry bushes this year, though so far I’ve only harvested about three. You’re going to need a lot more than that to make this adult take on strawberry shortcake, which is layered with soft brown sugar biscuits, juicy marinated strawberries, and sweetened whipped cream. Oh, and did I mention there’s booze in it?  😉   This[Read more]

Where did this weekend go? Seriously…have you seen it?

Because I think the brown butter, sour cream, and copious amounts of brown sugar are what make this bread so to die for. It has some healthy stuff[Read more]

Cinnamon Apple Kuchen

Finally, my first apple dessert of the fall! I actually had yet another pumpkin recipe in the queue but I bumped this one forward because I don’t want people to get all pumpkined out. Plus it’s delicious! What you see before you is a kuchen. Apparently, that is the German word for cake. If I had describe it, it’s more like a coffee cake in that it starts off with a sweet dough base and then is packed with juicy[Read more]
