Carrot Cake Pancakes with Cashew Cream Frosting

“Who doesn’t love dessert for breakfast?? These Carrot Cake Pancakes with Cashew Cream Frosting are ahhhmazing. They are soft and nutty and the cashew cream frosting is so so creamy! I’ve lost it over these Carrot Cake Pancakes because I mean it’s dessert AND it’s healthy dessert AND there’s veggies for breakfast. You know, that’s like bonus points right there. Starting out the day with veg is like the triple crown.”

Kicked Up Grilled CHeese

“We all have particular memories from our childhood when it comes to grilled cheese sandwiches. Mine would have to be when my dad was traveling during the week and my mom was just trying to get food on the table. She would cook up a gooey buttery grilled cheese sandwich with some soup. This is the adult version of your childhood grilled cheese sandwich. It is butter infused with fresh herbs and garlic….tender ham and provolone and American cheese and tomatoes. I am calling it the kicked up grilled cheese.”

Angie McGowan, Eclectic Recipes – Peaches and Cream Scones

Peaches and Cream Scones

“Every weekend I make biscuits or scones on Sunday. Working the dough is really relaxing for me, not to mention it’s great fun for the kids to help make. Scones are actually my favorite. They’re so incredibly versatile. You can make them with any type of seasonal fruit you have on hand. Since it’s the summer, I made these scones with fresh local peaches. But you can also make them with frozen peaches too.”

“Are you ready for some summer fun? From the kids being home for the summer and parties being planned, it’s great to have fun recipes on hand. These super cute flip flop sandwiches are perfect for a lunch surprise at home or for a beach themed party, too. Aren’t they just as cute as can be?”

Orange Cornmeal Cake

“I am really into the dessert flavor combinations that hit both sweet and savory, and this Orange Cornmeal Cake with Hazelnut Caramel Buttercream is no different.  It’s got a wonderful delicate cake flavor and texture that is not too sweet, BUT marry it up with the amazing buttercream that’s been amped-up with Baileys® Hazelnut Caramel Blondie Coffee Creamer and you’ve got yourself one delicious pairing.”

Natalie Lesnefsky, At Home With NatalieCucumber Salad

Cucumber Salad“I love the crunch of this salad and the mix of the sweetness and tang! Wait till you see what made this so creamy and delicious! My secret ingredient is Yoplait Light Vanilla yogurt! I already have it in my fridge for breakfast or snacks, so it was an easy addition to my salad!
It added just the right amount of sweetness and mixed with the tang of the scoop of mayonnaise, it was the perfect combo!”

Natalie Lesnefsky, At Home With Natalie – Spinach Queso Dip

Spinach Queso Dip

“If you’re looking for a delicious recipe to try out, here you go! We made a queso dip into an even yummier appetizer with a few key ingredients. I love queso and I knew I wanted to use this traditional Mexican cheese I found for the base of a yummy spinach queso dip. I also put tomatoes, spinach, cilantro and onions in it.”
