    Cherry Almond Muffins

    almond cherry muffins

    One of my favorite times of the year is when the cherry trees begin to blossom; a signal that summer is drawing near and winter is around the corner. The fragrance and the beauty of these tiny blossoms is intoxicating!

    Cherry trees produce small, bright red fruit perfect for pie, scones, jams, jellies and muffins. Cherries are so versatile they can even be used in savory applications such as sauces, salsas and bread stuffing.

    Raspberry Buttermilk Popsicles

    Raspberry Buttermilk Popsicle

    It's summer time, you are playing outside with your friends and you hear the familiar song of the ice cream truck. Instantly, you scatter to your houses asking (pleading with) your mother for money to buy a cold confection. You see him slowly come around the corner, your friends and you wait patiently as he makes his way down the street. Finally, he's here! So many choices plastered on the side of his truck. Do you want the bubble gum foot pop, the red white and blue firecracker pop or maybe the classic nutty cone. You settle on a the patriotic red, white and blue firecracker pop. Twenty minutes later, your face sticky in red and blue food coloring, you continue building your fort or riding bikes with friends. A garden hose at the end of the day turns into a make shift washroom to remove the dirt that has stuck to the red and blue drips on your face and hands.

    Vanilla Bean Plum Tart

    Vanilla Bean Plum Tarts

    If you live in any of the cold weather states, you have probably noticed the absence of good quality, seasonal fruits. There are your standard apples, oranges, strawberries and blueberries. Even these selections are shipped in from distant lands, beautifully ripened but void of any flavor. I did run into a small selection of what, I am guessing, is a leftover stock of stored plums at my local grocery store. After picking through a group of obviously-stored-too-long specimens, I found a few pounds of nice looking fruit that would be lovely in a fruit tart. Once baked in a buttery pecan crumb crust, the fruit could once again shine. And shine it did!

    Candied Vanilla Bacon

    candied vanilla bacon

    Bacon is one of the most delicious, mouthwatering meats. The smell of cooking bacon in the morning will wake just about anyone from the deepest sleep. But….. bacon isn’t just a side accompaniment for your over easy eggs. Bacon has gone mainstream and is now added to not only savory foods but also sweet confections. Bacon caramel corn, bacon vanilla shakes and bacon topped cupcakes are just a few of the creative ideas I have seen floating around the internet. Desserts with bacon combine the sweet and the salty to make the perfect sweet treat.

    Coconut Madeleine Cookies

    coconut madeline cookies

    The children's book, Madeline, is a sweet story about a young girl and her escapades in Paris. It's a classic children's story that I have read to my daughter many, many times! As I baked the cookies, I imagined the spunky Madeline sitting down with her school mates, a spot of tea and a madeleine cookie in hand.

    How to Make Vanilla Salt

    vanilla sea salt


    Sea salt is a relatively common seasoning found in most grocery stores, markets and restaurants. This type of salt is often used to season dishes without overpowering the complex flavors of the food, like iodized table salt sometimes will. While working on a recent project, I was astounded to learn that there is a very large variety of salts on the market today. Everything from black sea salt to salts from the volcanic ash of a mountain. After reviewing many of the salts, I realized just how versatile and flavorful salt can be. Beanilla sells vanilla Fleur de sel, and it is amazing! But we can't always wait for this delicious and versatile salt to be delivered to our door. We created a simple and delicious recipe that is the perfect gift for a hostess, as a parting gift at a wedding or kept in your pantry waiting for your next delicious creation!

    Chocolate, cherries, oatmeal, coconut, smoked almonds; all delicious ingredients on their own. Combine and bake all of these individual ingredients with a touch of butter, a bit of locally produced fresh honey and something magical happens! Store bought granola is delicious but nothing can compare to freshly baked granola.

    We all know that homemade granola is the perfect addition to our morning routine, but why does it just have to be limited to a breakfast staple?
