Creating sauce from fruit is so delicious and perfectly simple. It’s the perfect way to welcome summer into our kitchens. You can add it to ice cream, shortcake, pancakes, french toast, angel food cake, biscuits, oatmeal or just lick it directly off the spoon. It’s so simple, I’m not even going to make a recipe […]

strawberry sauce


My grandma used to color her eggs using onion skins and turmeric. It’s something I’ve already wanted to try but I always waited until the last minute and ended up going the new-fashioned route. Fortunately, my mom would still color her eggs this way, so she filled me in on how to do it but […]

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins


Many, many years ago, I tried guacamole. I liked it pretty well, enough to learn how to make it but I didn’t loooooove it. Fortunately, I rarely give up on food (it’s my best/worst trait) eating it again and again until finally, I fall in love. Like, I love it so much, I made it […]

Buttermilk Biscuits


A few years ago, Adam and I left the beach and drove past one of our favorite food trucks, the Rolling Stonebaker. On special, was a whiskey peach pizza. Adam ordered it, I ordered sausage. He LOVED it, once I took a bite, I have to admit, I loved it, as well. This recipe is […]

Whiskey Peach and Barbecue Pizza


Once upon a time, cake and shortbread had a child and named her scone. She was not too sweet, but not bland, a little crumbly but perfectly perfect with a cup of coffee. Eventually, her family grew. Orange scones, lemon scones, chocolate chip scones, pecan scones, they were a happy bunch. And then last week, […]

Simple Maple Walnut Scones


I know what you’re going to say…”Beth, WHY WOULD WE MAKE SPAGHETTI SAUCE? JARS ARE SOLD EVERYWHERE FOR LIKE A DOLLAR.” Don’t lie to me, you were saying that in big ol’ capital letters. So, just hear me out… It’s easy. It tastes better. One batch can make enough for three boxes of pasta. No […]

Spaghetti Sauce, you’ll never be the same


This is a recipe I created that is loved by everyone in this house. Maybe…too much. (glares at myself in a mirror.) It’s created with brown butter. If you aren’t sure what brown butter is or how to make it, well, click here. This cookie is tricky because it’s darker in color, so don’t under […]
