  • Bake Someone Happy this Valentine's Day.

    Bake Someone Happy this Valentine's Day.

    For those of you who don't want to bother with fancy decorations here are two fabulous scratch cakes that offer big flavor without all the fuss. You simply can't go wrong with either of these easy-to-make cakes.

    Classic flavors shine in these two cakes, because we put the focus on the ingredients that go into the cake, like rum and apple and orange and vanilla.

    We simplified the presentation too! Dust with powdered sugar after cooled, then give each slice a generous dollop of lightly sweetened whipped cream or a scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream before serving. It's ALMOST as good as a hug.

  • For Pie Lover's Only!

    For Pie Lover's Only!

    I come from a family of unabashed pie lovers. A homemade pie was always preferred to cake for birthdays and such, and we never missed a strawberry-rhubarb, cherry, blueberry, or peach pie season. When the snap of fall came calling, Mom’s apple pie took center stage and was truly other-worldly, but so was she.

  • It's time you learn a new cooking technique, Sous Vide.
    September 30, 2020 Frankie F.

    It's time you learn a new cooking technique, Sous Vide.

    Don't let the strange name fool you. Sous Vide (pronounced sue-veed) translates as "under vacuum" in French. The beauty (and secret) of sous vide cooking is that you cook your food sealed in a heat proof bag or pouch that is then submersed in hot water and kept at the desired temperature. It 's a great method of cooking that you shouldn't overlook or be intimidated by, especially with the new sous vide cooking appliances available now.

  • Is A Vitamix Blender Worth The Investment?
    September 29, 2020 Frankie F.

    Is A Vitamix Blender Worth The Investment?

    Well, yes. While purchasing a Vitamix Blender will set you back a few hundred dollars, what it gives back in convenience and pure kitchen prowess is worth every single penny. Whether you can splurge right away or you have to save up to buy the Vitamix that fits your needs, you'll be glad you made the investment every time you use it. And, once you realize how versatile it is, you'll use it a lot.

    What makes a Vitamix a Vitamix?  While it can handle the common tasks associated with a blender's kitchen duties, Vitamix blenders can handle so much more. Power, along with the blade and jar design, plays a key role in the Vitamix blender's performance.

    NFL Fans — 2 Game-Day Snacks You'll Want On Your Team

    A lot has changed since the 2019 football season. The Oakland Raiders with their move to Nevada became the Las Vegas Raiders and the state’s first NFL team. The Washington Redskins retired their name and logo after decades-long controversy and are now known as the Washington Football Team. (In a weird way I kind of like it.) Read more.

    Here are TWO WINNERS to get you through it all! Kick off game-day with our zesty, warm and bubbly Buffalo Chicken Dip with your favorite chips or pita for deep dipping. Then start the 4th quarter with these deliciously sweet football-shaped Chocolate Whoopie Pies for the WIN!

  • Mary Berry's Bakewell Tart

    Mary Berry's Bakewell Tart

    This recipe is perfect because one, I always have a few bags of fresh frozen blueberries on hand. Freezing fresh fruit in-season is a win-win all winter long! My stash of fresh frozen blueberries is the perfect antidote when fall has arrived, and I've already started counting the days till the next summer solstice. Their sweetness also works perfectly with the almond filling.

    Reason number two? Watching Mary Berry on old episodes of The Great British Baking Show never gets old.

    The Creamiest Butternut Squash Soup

    The creamiest butternut squash soup — so healthy yet if feels so indulgent. Definitely the way to start Fall off right.

    This soup is a breeze to make with only five main ingredients: butternut squash, potatoes, onions, carrots and chicken stock. The potatoes and squash are roasted together until tender, while the onions and carrots get sautéed until softened. The squash, potatoes and stock are then added to the pot with the onions and carrots and everything gets simmered before being pureed with an immersion blender or in a blender.
