Drunken Fruit Salad

Drunken Fruit Salad

Remember our Blueberry Cake? What we didn’t tell you before is that when  you top it with whipped cream and this Drunken Fruit Salad, it will be the best thing you have ever eaten. The blueberry cake is delicious, and the cream and the drunken […]

Old Fashioned Strawberry Shortcake

Old Fashioned Strawberry Shortcake

I know, enough with the strawberries already. But when you have possibly the best strawberries on the east coast, and some of the best strawberry recipes, what can you do? I’m basically being held in a strawberry dessert prison. And while I’m on that metaphor, […]

Pink Lemonade Champagne Punch

Pink Lemonade Champagne Punch

Pink lemonade Champagne punch is a drink that goes down as easily as it is made. So easily, in fact, that my intern and dad and I made it two days in a row while celebrating nothing more fancy than being together for the first time […]

Easter Bonnet Cookies

Easter Bonnet Cookies

Sour Cream and Chive Rolls

Sour Cream and Chive Rolls

Sour Cream and Chive Rolls have the ability to make me time travel. Hear me out. Whenever I smell chlorine, I am transported back to swimming lessons at the YMCA. I feel the anxiety that I felt in the locker room on my way to […]

Depression Cocoa

Depression Cocoa

Depression Cocoa is a recipe I’ve been very excited to make and write about, and with temperatures dropping into the 20’s here in SC, the timing is right. This is the hot cocoa that our family grew up drinking. One whiff of it on my […]

Cranberry Pineapple Salad

Cranberry Pineapple Salad

Thursday is trash day here in Natick, MA. So on Wednesday’s I go through the fridge and get rid of anything that looks gelatinous, has congealed, or has anything to do with mold.  And occasionally, my Tupperware even gets tossed. It can be a very […]
