A Cake for Summer Occasions

Strawberry Stuffed Angel Food Cake

Growing up, the official start of spring in our family kitchen came with this cake being served for my older sister’s birthday. After all, what screams “spring,” louder than fresh strawberries?

Every member of my family has a personal favorite cake that has become his or her birthday cake. Good taste must run in the family because I look forward to the cakes almost as much as I look forward to celebrating my loved ones. There’s banana cake, carrot cake, Boston cream pie cake, German chocolate cake (me!), triple chocolate cake, chocolate peanut butter cakes and this luscious Strawberry Stuffed Angel Food Cake. Angel food cake is aptly named, as it’s light as the clouds and sweet as heaven. While you can use a boxed mix for this dessert, give a scratch angel food cake a try. It’s worth it. You may also want to invest in a pan that is specifically made for angel food cakes. While a specific pan isn’t absolutely necessary, using one can help you achieve the best results.

A Million-Dollar Meal

Million-Dollar Meatballs

This dish is one I find really special and comforting. It brings me right back to my childhood and reminds me of all the great meals my mom cooked for my siblings and me while growing up. Without a doubt, this was one of our absolute favorites — even today when we go visit my parents, at least one of us requests Million-Dollar Meatballs for dinner!

Easy Dinner for Famished Families

Cheesy Chicken and Rice Casserole

As a single, working parent, it is so important to create easy dinners for my family throughout the week. This dish is one that has been in our family for years, and it never gets old.

This is the one dish my children never tire of and ask for on a regular basis. You can create this dish with any type of chicken your heart desires! On busy weekdays, I will typically prepare this casserole with a rotisserie chicken, however, it is amazing with chicken right off the grill.

Simple Summer Snacking

“If you really want to make a friend, go to someone’s house and eat with them. The people who give you their food, give you their heart.” - Cesar Chavez

For me, connections through food have always been an important part of my life. From standing on my grandmother’s dining room chair when I was just barely tall enough to see into the mixing bowl to gathering with friends sharing our time and stories with one another over dinner, connections have always made their way into my kitchen.

A Springtime Treat

Cool Lemon Lush

I have something to share with you that’s delicious, light and perfect for spring! It’s a Cool Lemon Lush, made with whipped topping, lemon pudding, crunchy chopped pecans and more.

The citrus flavor in this dish is the perfect way to kick off the spring season. No matter if you’re at home or gathering with friends, everyone is sure to love the fruity lemon taste.

This recipe is fluffy, sweet and packs a flavorful punch. It’s also a great recipe to get your kids involved in the kitchen. Smoothing out the layers with a spoon is a perfect job to let them help out!

A Creamy Way to Rethink Chicken

Cilantro Cream Sauce

I’m not sure about you, but I am 100% ready for warmer spring weather. There is almost nothing I love more than grilling and dining on our patio.

When my family is able to grill, one of our meal prep staples is grilled chicken! It’s easy to prepare for the week and can be served so many different ways. Since it is so popular in our home, I’ve really had to step up my sauce game to keep it from getting bland.

That said, I introduce you to Cilantro Cream Sauce! I know cilantro can be quite polarizing. However, if you’re like me and LOVE it, this sauce is certainly worth adding to your weeknight meals.

Bring Family Together with a Classic Meal

Chicken Cordon Bleu

Nothing means more to me than quality time with my family. My family, for the most part, spends a lot of time together over meals. Being the foodie I am, I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Today, I’m sharing a go-to main dish for my family that both my little sisters love.

It’s a classic: Chicken Cordon Bleu. It’s got sweet ham in the middle, surrounded by melty cheese and, of course, the crispy outer layer of crunch. Yum!

My mom used to make this for us growing up, but now when I make it for everyone, I put my own spin on it. It brings back memories for everyone in my family and spreads smiles across all our faces. Plus, it’s filling!

Just Like Grandma Used to Make

Cooking and baking have always been ways for me to relax, find calmness and bring joy to myself and others. I’ve always believed recipes have a way of bringing people together in more ways than one, and this recipe is no different. In fact, it isn’t just a recipe; it’s a memory, a tradition and a reminder of my Grandma Donna.

As long as I can remember, when we spent the holidays at my grandparents’, my grandmother would make at least three batches of Scotcharoos. Usually, she would hide a bonus batch in the basement and only her favorite grandkids knew the hiding spot of her secret stash (don’t worry, I always knew the hiding spot).
