Danish Ebelskivers with Jam

Danish Ebelskivers with Jam

Now I may not be the foremost expert on Danish food but I do know how good their ebelskivers are! Ebelskivers are traditionally served as a dessert because they are pretty sweet. Think pancake, but better. Better because they are little round popper-shaped pancakes filled with your favorite jam, chocolate or fruit and they can be handheld. I love dunking them in maple syrup!

Coffee and Chocolate Energy Bites

What goes better together than coffee and chocolate? Nothing! Well except maybe chocolate and red wine, LOL! Anyway, I posted on my Instagram stories that I was making these energy bites and the DM’s started flooding in (thank you friends) so as soon as I was finished I wanted to get this recipe on the blog. I made 4 batches and after a few tweaks in the first batch I feel comfortable sharing the recipe. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Pie Dip

Pumpkin Pie Dip

I pulled this one out of the vault. I started making this dip maybe 10 years ago, I had kind of forgotten about it until a friend asked me for the recipe last week. It got me thinking, you know, that was a really popular dessert dip. So I carved a little pumpkin as a serving dish and whipped up a batch.

Protein Energy Bites

Protein Energy Bites

Back in 2013 and 2014 I made this snack so often (like once a week for months) that I burnt out my taste buds. Time went on and I had forgotten how good these little guys were and how convenient they were to just grab one as I'm running out the door. BUT…I’m bringing them back starting NOW! :)

Mom's 'famous' Texas Sheet Cake

Mom's 'famous' Texas Sheet Cake

After my mom passed away my dad and I started the process of looking through her things. While this is a process I wish no one had to go thru, it is an inevitable part of life. As hard as it was, I was also reminded of memories. Good memories of time spent with my momma in the kitchen.

Cream Cheese Fig Tart

Cream Cheese Fig Tart

Sometimes I walk through the grocery store and buy completely random ingredients without reason or plan. Well, that was the case with these figs. Trader Joes gets me every time, they always have fresh, seasonal food that inspires me to get creative. So I proudly picked up the carton of figs and got to thinking. My 'recipe thinking' usually happens in the kitchen while opening and closing the fridge and pantry and looking around.

French Cherry Clafoutis

French Cherry Clafoutis

This recipe comes from one of my favorite bloggers and cookbook authors: Mimi Thorisson, I highly recommend perusing her blog, Manger, and I dare you to not fall in love with the dreamy images of a perfect little town and this beautiful family living in southern France. All the photographs you see on the blog were taken by Mimi's husband, it's truly storytelling at it's best. Their story, the food, the blog, the cookbooks... c'est magnifique!
