Tropical Punch Fruit Juice Popsicles

I love making homemade popsicles. Not only can you have a lot more control over what goes in them, you can also get much more creative with flavor combinations.

Orange Blueberry Whoopie Pies

I love everything about citrus fruits, except eating them plain. Personally, I’d rather bake with the oranges. Which is what I did today.

Orange Carrot Smoothie

This smoothie doesn’t have any spinach, but does have carrots, which my grandmother always told me are good for your eyesight. Is that actually true? I don’t know. But I figure anything that you can grow in your backyard and harvest with your own hands can’t be too bad. Right?

Fruit Pizza

Whose big idea was it to have cake for every single birthday party ever? Nothing against cake, but I can think of about a dozen things I’d rather have. I don’t think there’s a single thing wrong with a birthday brownie, pie, cobbler, krispie treat, or fruit covered cookie.

Orange Juice Smoothie

Orange Poppyseed Pancakes

Pin ItI’ve recently been asked to create a cookbook, specifically of breakfast items.  Breakfast has, of necessity, become a big as heck deal at our house, so I’m getting better at it every day.  I thought I would share my basic pancake recipe, with some thoughts on how to embellish it.  Okay, okay… I’ll admit [Read On]
