Pickle Pasta Salad

I stumbled into this perfectly pickled pasta salad quite by accident. I was Googling for pasta salads and saw a recipe for dill pickle salad. It sounded interesting so I clicked on the link to Delish and found the recipe was behind a paywall. I could see part of the recipe, but not all of it. I saw that it called for eggs, pickles, green

Banana Blueberry Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Summer is here and we have a bounty of fruits and berries just ready for the table. While the summer has already been too hot in Minnesota, we had a bit of a chill down this past week and it was the perfect time to bake some cake using some beautiful blueberries that I picked up at Lunds & Byerlys recently. I've been meaning to

Julekake

Julekake is a traditional Norwegian Christmas cake. We've had one on Christmas morning for as long as I can remember, usually store bought and always delicious. Store bought until I forgot to order one and was forced to make my own - or go without. Oh the horror!! We simply could not have Christmas morning without a julekake, so after consulting with older relatives in

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

This is a deliciously moist cake that isn't too sweet - perfect for a summer BBQ. This is a recipe my dad and I perfected over many weekends at the cabin. My dad's been gone for nearly 15 years, so I think of him and how much fun we had figuring out the best Pineapple Upside Down Cake recipe. There was very likely alcohol involved.

Ham and Cheese Egg Bites (no Sous Vide)

I love Starbuck's Egg Bites, they are delicious. The eggs are absolutely perfect and make a great breakfast on the go. I'm not a huge coffee drinker, so I rarely get them unless I make a special trip or am traveling. I love them, but they cost about $5 for two egg bites so unless I am traveling I don't eat them. Luckily they are

Shamrock Shake Bites

If you came of age in the 70s or even 80s - March is all about Shamrock Shakes from McDonald's. Like Girl Scout Cookies, and the McRib, it isn't around for very long so if you don't make a special trip, you're not going to get one. I can't remember the last time I had one. They look so good now, so much better than

The Best EVER Carrot Cake

I love carrot cake, and so does everyone in my family. In the past I have made carrot cakes from the box because it seems so much easier, but one of the kids has a nut allergy so anything that has been produced on equipment that processes tree nuts is out - that includes many cake mixes. The ones that are nut free use something
