A delicious and easy summer crisp using strawberries and parsley from Taproot Farm CSA, Week 1!Strawberries and rhubarb, a classic early summer combination.

Refreshing Guava, Pineapple & Mango Soft Serve: Fresh Guava, Frozen Pineapple & Mango and Milk, Topped with Isigny Sainte-Mère Whipped Cream, Cinnamon Sugar, Sliced Strawberries and Blackberries

I love soft serve smoothie treats during the summer! 🙂 They are perfectly refreshing after a long day and just provide that “extra boost” needed to get your to-do list completed! 🙂 I came across some ripe guavas in the market recently (WIN!) and I decided to craft a soft serve with them. Guava has…

Today is another rainy/slightly dreary day here in Pennsylvania and I decided to brighten up my breakfast with this delicious Tropical Smoothie Bowl! 🙂 I LOVE smoothies and smoothie bowls, but definitely don’t get the chance to make and enjoy them as often as I would like.

Quick and Easy Mini Cream Puffs: Fluffy Bite-Sized Puffs Filled with Taproot Farm Fresh Organic Strawberries and Isigny Sainte-Mère Whipped Cream, Sprinkled with Powdered Sugar

Cream puffs definitely are near the top my (*very extensive) list of favorite desserts! I always light up when I see them at a party or gathering.

Decadent Chocolate Strawberry Crepes: Thin Whole Wheat Cocoa Crepes, Stuffed with Chocolate Hazelnut Spread and Fresh Strawberries, Topped with Whipped Cream and Chocolate Drizzle

What’s more romantic than French cuisine on Valentine’s Day? Probably very few things. And these crepes are just the ticket. I always felt that crepes would be something I would “definitely have to order out” because they looked so complicated to make. But they are, in fact, entirely possible to make at home. And, actually,…

Dessert for Breakfast: Decadent Tiramisu Oatmeal Parfait

Sometimes (*all the time), I crave tiramisu. And, when that happens, I may or may not attempt to make a healthier, nutritious and more filling version that I could pass as dessert for breakfast (or even breakfast for dessert, if you’re so inclined). This tiramisu oatmeal parfait is fairly simple – creamy one-minute oats flavored with…
