The Strawberry Capistrano is a refreshing, non-dairy, non-alcoholic drink. The natural bright pink hue from the strawberries makes this summer mocktail irresistible! I feel like summer is just starting… right as my e-mail inbox is assaulted with fall and all things pumpkin spice. I’m not ready to let go of summer just yet, even though I have already marked my calendar with the openings of the local farm fall festivals.…

Goat Cheese Cheesecake Ice Cream

Goat cheese cheesecake ice cream is a decadent, not too sweet, warm weather treat! * Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

Goat cheese cheesecake ice cream is a decadent, not too sweet, warm weather treat! Darlings, I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to make goat cheese ice cream. It’s amazing, and so so much easier than classic churned ice cream recipes. Imagine making an ice cream base in your food processor or blender, churning, and freezing. There is no required chilling time before the churn. That is a…

Flourless Black Forest Cake

Flourless Black Forest Cake is a gluten free treat inspired by in-season cherries and classic Black Forest Cake.  * Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

Flourless Black Forest Cake is a gluten free treat inspired by in-season cherries and classic Black Forest Cake.  I forget about flourless chocolate cake. Tucked at the bottom of most dessert menus as a token “gluten free” option, I think it’s easy to assume flourless chocolate cake isn’t as “exciting” as less familiar items with longer names. Until, of course, we want something rich, unapologetically chocolate, and so decadent it’s…

Raspberry Ice Cream Parfait

A raspberry ice cream parfait is an elegant and easy no-bake summer dessert! * Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

I participated in Mom Blog Tour Sweets & Snacks Expo (#MomBlogTourFF)  on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers. I received Loacker products to facilitate my post, but my opinion and creative content are my own. Summer desserts this year are about two things here: ice cream and fruit. Know why? Ice cream, even the homemade kind, is relatively effortless, and there is so much amazing fruit in season! As much as I love…

Cherry Long Island Iced Tea

Cherry Long Island Iced Tea is a seasonally inspired twist on the classic Long Island Iced Tea recipe. * Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

Cherry Long Island Iced Tea is a seasonally inspired twist on the classic Long Island Iced Tea recipe.  Cheers to “accidental recipes”, darlings! I’m so glad we had leftover cherry cola from a family visit so we could make this Cherry Long Island Iced Tea, because it is one delicious summer cocktail. Long Island iced teas are designed for slow sipping on hot summer evenings. …

How to Make Cajeta {Goat’s Milk Dulce de Leche}

Cajeta, a goat's milk version of dulce de leche, is a delicious caramel for desserts. You can make dulce de leche from scratch using either goat's milk, or cow's milk. * Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

Cajeta, a goat’s milk version of dulce de leche, is a delicious caramel for desserts. You can make dulce de leche from scratch using either goat’s milk, or cow’s milk.  I rediscovered goat’s milk this summer, darlings. We can thank brunch at a local diner, actually. The Godfather and I were waiting in line for our table, and a poster on the wall had an ad for the restaurant’s goat…

Crunchy Gouda Black Truffle Popcorn {Moon Cheese Review}

I participated in Mom Blog Tour Sweets & Snacks Expo (#MomBlogTourFF)  on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers. I received Moon Cheese products to facilitate my post, but my opinion and creative content are my own. I can’t remember the last time I left the house without a snack in my purse and didn’t think, “There might be a meltdown.” Not that I will melt down, but the eldest tiny member of my…

Watermelon mint sangria is a refreshing summer cocktail! This sangria recipe is made for warm evenings on the porch. * GoodieGodmother.com

Watermelon mint sangria is a refreshing summer cocktail! This sangria recipe is made for warm evenings on the porch. We’re going to get our first heat wave next week, and I’m a little excited about it. The recent weather has been mildly warm and perfect for walks outside, but it’s felt like a prolonged spring rather than summer. I’ve had zero reason to complain about the heat yet and that…

Vanilla Bean Pudding

Vanilla bean pudding is a classic, beloved dessert you can whip up with just a few simple ingredients. * Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

Vanilla bean pudding is a classic, beloved dessert you can whip up with just a few simple ingredients.  In the past four months, I think I’ve made as many layer cakes. Only one batch of macarons has left my oven, and my cookie cutters are untouched in their storage tower. Let’s not even talk about the ridiculous number of recipes tested, photographed, and waiting in my queue for editing and…

Lemon Sun-Dried Tomato Linguine

Less finicky than an alfredo, but still creamy and comforting, this lemon sun-dried tomato linguine recipe is a winner! * Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

Less finicky than an alfredo, but still creamy and comforting, this lemon sun-dried tomato linguine recipe is a winner! Recently, I’ve been working on becoming a better cook. I’m a good baker, and a solid cook – remaking leftovers on the fly is my specialty – but there’s room for improvement. What the blog doesn’t show are the super quick meals I piece together most weekdays. Scrambled eggs with vegetables are…

Beer for brunch? Delicious and totally acceptable if it's in these chocolate stout beer waffles with whiskey syrup! * Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

Beer for brunch? Delicious and totally acceptable if it’s in these chocolate stout beer waffles with whiskey syrup! Who says you can’t have beer for breakfast? Beer is a wonderful ingredient to use in baking and cooking, so when I came across a recipe for beer waffles using a pale ale, I decided to adopt it a bit and use a stout. And since I think stouts and chocolate pair very…

Cabbage Kale Tahini Slaw

A CSA-inspired salad, this cabbage kale tahini slaw is easy, and most importantly, delicious! * Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

A CSA-inspired salad, this cabbage kale tahini slaw is easy, and most importantly, delicious! I was chatting with some blogger friends recently and the concept of “finding your blog’s niche” arose. If you find the right tiny corner of the internet and post just in one category, your blog is supposed to grow. It seems “everything I think tastes good” – my answer – isn’t a niche. Oh well.…
