Who doesn’t like a good pineapple upside-down cake? How about an ice cream sundae, or even better, a sundae with cake in it? A pineapple upside-down cake is a pound cake that has some of my favorite fruits on it, pineapples and cherries, mixed with butter and sugar on top of the cake. The fun thing about this cake is that when it is done baking, it is turned over and served upside-down. Add some ice cream with the cake and you have yourself one delicious dessert to enjoy. What’s a better dessert to have than some ice cream with …
Who doesn’t like a good banana split? A classic banana split has three scoops of ice cream (one each of vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry) served between a split banana. The ice cream is usually served with pineapple sauce, chocolate sauce, and strawberry sauce drizzled onto the ice cream, then crushed nuts (generally peanuts or walnuts), whipped cream, and topped with a maraschino cherry. Who doesn’t want to end their day with a banana split?
This recipe for banana split bites doesn’t have ice cream, but it does have chocolate. Although, you could dip the fruit in some ice cream or …
Having trouble feeding your kids healthy snacks? Try giving them a colorful snack in a cool shape. Froyo bites are a quick and healthy snack to give your kids. A little bit of yogurt and a little bit of fruit in a fun shape is a good way to get your kids to eat healthy.
Yogurt comes from milk, so yogurt eaters will get a dose of animal protein (about 9 grams per 6-ounce serving), plus several other nutrients found in dairy foods, like calcium, vitamin B-2, vitamin B-12, potassium, and magnesium. Yogurt also has a good number of probiotics. Probiotics …
Is it just me, or have smoothies become HUGE lately? I see people posting pictures of them on blogs and Instagram everyday, getting more creative with each one. Green smoothies have gotten really popular, with people adding green vegetables like kale into a traditionally fruit-based drink. Ingredients like egg yolks and coconut oil also add a lot of nutritional value to smoothies. The fun part about making them is that you can add pretty much any ingredient you feel like! You can stick to one type of fruit, or add in eight. Different varieties of yogurt and milk make good …
The past few weeks have been a bit brutal temperature-wise with the highs soaring close to the hundreds. And even though it seems the worst is over, the warmer weather is here to stay, at least for a little while longer. It’s important to stay hydrated in heat this intense, so here are a few drink ideas that are a bit more fun that just water or Gatorade (courtesy of Better Homes and Gardens and Shaw’s – click links for full – and more – recipes):
Strawberry Iced Tea: For a different twist on the traditional black iced tea, try this …
Happy National French Toast Day! This special food holiday was recently celebrated on November 28. French toast also happens to be my favorite breakfast/brunch item, which is no surprise since I have a big sweet tooth. I’m on a mission to try all the best French toast dishes in the Boston area, and hopefully around the world since it is a dish that is enjoyed in so many countries.
It doesn’t take rocket science to whip up a French toast meal: soak slices of bread in a mixture of beaten egg/milk/cream, fry both sides on a skillet, and finish it off with a sweet topping (i.e. powdered sugar, …
This past Columbus Day weekend, I visited Vermont for the first time to see the fall foliage, alpine slide and of course, explore the local good eats. Vermont is famous for the wide variety of cheeses, maple syrup, Lake Champlain chocolates, craft breweries, and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Here are the food highlights from my trip – hope you enjoy!
In Stowe, VT, I had dinner at the Solstice restaurant at the Stowe Mountain Resort and ordered the cheese plate from the menu. I picked out three cheeses (all locally made in VT): Cabot Creamery‘s signature cheddar (cow’s milk), Lake’s Edge …

It’s my birthday so cake I will eat! In honor of my own big day a cake-gadget had to be in order. Even though turning twenty three isn’t a major milestone like turning twenty one or twenty five, as my father reminded me this morning when he called to wish me a happy day, I still think it’s appropriate to talk about cake today.
I found the cutest little gadget that is perfect for a birthday at any age. Similar to the cake-pop maker that I blogged about many Thursdays ago, the Cake Push Up Tubes …
