Blackberry Buckle featuring KV Farms Inc.

If you’re like me and wondered, what the heck is a buckle? Here’s a little tid bit of information: “A buckle is a cake that gets its name from the fact that there is so much fruit that a cake might seem to “buckle” under the weight of it all. You can make a buckle with almost any kind of fruit, but the cake base is particularly good for soaking up the juices from the fruit.” A good friend of…

Chocolate Bread Pudding featuring Heins Family Farm

Chris and I connected via social media several years ago now (Really? That long!?) I’ve always enjoyed Chris’ love for dairy, his sense of humor as well as his ability to share so eloquently share his thoughts and opinions. I was SO EXCITED when I saw Chris had a lovely lady named Adriane in his life. Adriane is equally as passionate and is the perfect complement to Chris’ sense of humor. The two really are a perfect fit and it’s been fun…

Butter Pecan Ice Cream featuring Larrabee Farms

Social media makes the world such a small place… When I put out a call for features during this series, I was put in contact with Keith of Larrabee Farms. Turns out, Keith is a customer of my dad and our butcher shop back in California! There is a joke back where I grew up in California that goes “it’s where the nuts come from” and that is indeed true. Northern California is the home for almonds, walnuts, and pecans!…

Wheat Berry Rice Pudding with Caramelized Bacon & Nuts

I love pudding anything… Bread pudding, rice pudding. There’s just something about that gooey delicious-ness that makes your soul feel comforted. When I knew I was going to be sharing recipes involving wheat as whole grains for my Crop of the Month series, I immediately thought of wheat berry pudding!  So, I took a classic rice pudding recipe and halved the rice, added the wheat berries… Then I upped the ante by adding caramelized maple syrup, bacon, and nut topping.…

Mixed Berry Cobbler

Last weekend, we got one gorgeous day. The sunshine was out, the birds were chirping. It really felt like spring. And in celebration, I decided to make a berry cobbler. Something about cobbler screams warmer weather to me. Like summer and enjoying sunshine on the back porch while you grill. Or maybe it was hormones and I just wanted to be fat and happy. Either way, a mixed berry cobbler I made!  Now the thing about cobblers is that it seems…

North Dakota Caramel Rolls

So I’ve always been a huge fan of cinnamon rolls, they were what I would always order whenever we went anywhere that made pastries. But since I’ve been living in North Dakota, I  realize that  you haven’t lived until you’ve had a caramel roll. I am not sure if caramel rolls are something unique to North Dakota or the Midwest in general. But I had never come across their fluffy and creamy goodness until I moved to North Dakota. A caramel roll is…

No Bake Strawberry Shortcake

I love a good baking challenge, but sometimes I just enjoy a simple and easy dessert. This strawberry shortcake looks fancy, but I promise it is so easy! It would be the perfect summer dessert, however, I did make it in the middle of winter North Dakota. So anything is possible my friends.  The secret to this cake is to let it sit for a few hours or overnight in the fridge. The more it sits, the more the flavors…

Meyer Lemon Scones with Vanilla Lemon Glaze

There are a lot of things I avoid making because they seem difficult or too fancy. Pie was one of those things, but I conquered that and found it wasn’t that hard. Scones was another thing, but they turned out to be even easier than pie! Honestly, who knew scones were simple?  Remember all the citrus I was gifted by my lovely friend Megan of The Beef Jar? First I made muffins then I got the idea for scones… Thanks…

Blood Orange Poppy Seed Muffins

Muffins are one of the most under-rated breakfast items, ever! Honestly, I love muffins! Chocolate muffins, blueberry muffins, banana muffins… I love them all! But I can’t tell you the last time I had a poppy seed muffin. Growing up, I used to have this intense hatred of blueberries, so when I bought a muffin it was almost certainly a poppy seed. I was reminded of my love for poppy seed muffins after a friend on Instagram shared a photo of…

Maple Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies featuring Heather Kessler

Maple syrup is something I enjoyed pretty regularly over my waffles or pancakes, but I never really think about where it comes from or how it is made. I was excited when Heather contacted me to be featured for their maple syrup! Heather and her husband Brett live on Clay Hill Ranch in Indiana where they raise mostly sheep, as well as cattle and hogs and of course maple syrup. I decided to change up my typical chocolate chip cookie…
