Cherry Strawberry Cheesecake Popsicles

Cherry Strawberry Cheesecake Popsicles

Summer means longer days, warm weather, swimming, family cookouts, and of course popsicles!  When my children were younger, an Ice Cream Truck would always draw everyone out of their houses with its melodic yet somewhat annoying song. What might be even better than the children running […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Lattice Galette

Strawberry Rhubarb Lattice Galette

Ahh, rhubarb season! I recently saw this incredible gorgeous Leek Latticed Tart on thefeedfeed.com and thought it was just about the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. True food art! Because rhubarb is one of my all-time favorite produce items, I figured I’d give it a […]

Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies with Caramel Filling

Every since I was a little girl, I’ve always loved to bake. I first learned from my Grandma Nickels, which has now been passed onto Lexi. Lexi shares her middle name, Margaret, because I wanted her to share a part of this very special woman in my life!  […]
