Berries And Cream Ice Box Cake From Sally’s Baking Addiction

So, I have a favorite baking blog! I adore Sally’s Baking Addiction and so many of my go-to recipes come from her site that I feel like I should maybe start a fan club. The girl can bake! This recipe for an icebox cake proves she can also prepare the perfect dessert without her oven.

I’m working with McCormick this year, a brand I’ve been longing to work with for years, to bring you fresh and flavorful recipes. I grew up spicing and flavoring food with McCormick, so I’m thrilled to be on their blogging team! Have you ever made icebox cake?

Half Baked Harvest’s Bourbon Pecan Cherry Hand Pies

If you don’t have Half Baked Harvest Cookbook, I strongly encourage you to add it to your shelf. Like Sally, you can count on Tieghan to consistently deliver amazing food. Like these…

Bourbon Pecan Cherry Hand Pies.

Fresh summer cherries made into a sweet cherry-blueberry jam and wrapped up in flakey, buttery pecan pie dough. These cherry pies are not average cherry pie…they are so much better. Perfect summer dessert to go along with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Mixed Berry Shortcake From The Pioneer Woman

I admit to having all of Ree’s plates, and her butter dish, and several casserole dishes and on and on. But her cute dishes are not the reason I was first lured to Ree Drummond’s site, The Pioneer Woman. It was her food! This berry shortcake is made especially scrumptious by the addition of citrus zest to the berries and the yogurt cream.

Mixed Berry Shortcake

It’s Monday! It’s a brand new week! The birds are chirping! The coffee’s brewing! Everything has such hope and promise! And here’s why: The utter horror-the abject hopelessness-of springing forward is finally behind us. Man, was this year a toughie. I didn’t think I was going to make it there for a minute.
